Icy Wonders is a cool slot machine from the Swedish game developer NetEnt, featuring an snowy winter wonderland inhabited by cold-resilient creatures.
Two progressive jackpots
Icy Wonders is chiefly famous for the two progressive jackpot that it is feeding together with the slot games Tiki Wonders and Geisha Wonders. These jackpots – named Mega Wonder Jackpot and Wonder Jackpot – are both local jackpots, meaning that their respective sizes at any given moment will vary from one casino to the next.
Mega Wonder Jackpot is set to pay out less frequently than the Wonder Jackpot, and therefore has a tendency to grow significantly bigger. In 2014, a lucky Swedish player in Mr Green Casino won a €859,004 Mega Wonder Jackpot – a new record for the Icy Wonders slot machine.
To win the Mega Wonder Jackpot you need to get five start symbols. If you only get four stars, you win the Wonder Jackpot instead.

A human dressed for winter can also appear on the reels, as well as her igloo. The classic card symbols are also utilized, but inside blocks of ice.
The whale is wild and can substitute for any of the regular symbols, but not for the scatter symbol, the jackpot symbol, or the bonus symbol.

3 scatters = 10 free spins
4 scatters = 20 free spins
5 scatters = 30 free spins
During free spins, a 2x win multiplier is active for all regular wins (not for bonus wins).
