Ice Hockey is a high energy, sport themed slot game powered by Playtech casino software. The theme of the game is based on an international Ice Hockey match between two rival teams. Before players can start playing this slot game, they must pick the two teams that will face off against each other. The teams that are picked will determine how the game is played. The team on the left will payout from left to right and the team on the right will payout from right to left. Payouts occur when an individual player lands on the same payline or if players from the same team land on the same payline.
Choose Your Teams & Symbols
The slot machine in Ice Hockey is based on the standard 5-reel 15 payline slot that can be found in many Playtech games. The game features, scatter symbols, wild symbols, a free spin bonus feature and a pass the puck bonus feature. On the reels players will find a variety of symbols relating to hockey and the players. Whichever teams were chosen at the beginning of the game are represented on the reels along with the standard high card symbols dressed up in hockey gear.
Free Spins and Scatters
The Ice Hockey game logo acts as the game’s scatter symbol. The scatter symbol can be scattered anywhere on the five reels to create a winning combination. As in many pokies available online in NZ, winnings are calculated by multiplying the scatter symbol payout by the total bet at the time. In this game, the free spin bonus game is triggered when either of the team’s free spin flag lands simultaneously on reels 1 and 5. When this happens, players will be rewarded with 12 free spins. During the free spin round, only the players from the winning flag will appear on the reels, making it easier to create winning combinations.
Hockey Goal Wild Symbol
The wild symbol in the Ice Hockey pokies game is the hockey goals symbol. In this game the wild symbol can substitute for any other standard symbol to create a winning combination with the exception of the scatter and bonus symbols. The wild symbol is also the highest paying symbol in the game. Finding all five hockey goals across the reels will trigger the game’s jackpot of a healthy 10 000 coin prize. If players land only four wild symbols they will be paid out 1000 coins and for three wild symbols only 200 coins.
Pass the Puck Bonus Round
The hockey puck symbol in Ice Hockey is the bonus symbol and is the key to triggering the pass the puck bonus round. To trigger the bonus round players must land the hockey puck on reel 2 with any left side player immediately to the puck’s left. The bonus round can also be triggered when the puck lands on reel 4 with any right hand side player immediately to the right of the puck. In the bonus round, the payers will pass the puck to any other player currently on the reels. For every player that the puck is passed to, players will win 3x their total bet.
