Polar Explorers In Online Slots


Space is the final frontier, but the last terrains to be explored on earth were the polar ice caps. The people that ventured into this harsh and forbidding terrain were a courageous lot. Two online casino games suppliers have paid tribute to these explorers through online slots.

Realtime Gaming is one of these games suppliers with a polar themed online slot titled Polar Explorer. It is live at online casinos like Club World and Silver Oak. The high paying symbols are thematic and include polar bear, whale, seal and compass. The low paying symbols are the usual playing card icons. The polar explorer is the wild symbol and his ship is the scatter symbol. When the playing card symbols appear in all rows of reels 2, 3 and 4 they may create a complete snowflake in the background. This combination randomly triggers one of three bonus features. The Explorer Feature awards 5 free spins in which reels 4 and 5 are always wild. The Discovery Feature awards 8 free spins in which each free spin will have at least one explorer wild symbol in each reel. The Hidden Chest feature awards 8 free spins in which randomly selected symbols are replaced by wild symbols. Three or more scatter ships appearing on the reels retrigger the feature in each case. Polar Explorer includes the popular Realtime Gaming features like Feature Guarantee with Instant Trigger Chance and two randomly triggered progressive jackpots.

Polar Pioneers is the polar themed online slot from Microgaming. It can be played at online casinos like Jackpot City and Royal Vegas. The high paying thematic symbols are explorer, ship, ice boots, compass, huskies and pick axe. The low paying symbols are playing card icons designed as coloured ice sculptures. The explorer is the wild symbol and it also awards the top line payout of 15,000 coins. This creates high variance in the Polar Pioneers online slot game. The set of huskies is the scatter symbol and it awards payouts multiplied by the total bet. Two huskies symbols anywhere on the reels trigger the 2nd Chance Respin Bonus Game. The reels with the huskies are fixed and the other three reels spin again. You receive payouts for winning combinations both before and after the respin. If additional huskies appear in the respin the free spins feature is triggered. You get to play10 free spins in which all payouts are doubled. Polar Pioneers also features the Microgaming Gamble Game.
