Grab your heavy parka and get ready to battle the frigid cold in your quest to find Arctic riches. The Polar Explorer is a video slot game that was developed by RTG, and provides players several ways to grow their bankroll on this fun adventure through some of the colder regions on the planet. This slot machine has everything from wilds, unique bonus rounds, progressive jackpots, and a guarantee feature that will ensure you ht that bonus round sooner than later.
When it comes to betting, the Polar Explorer Slot game will allow you to bet as little as one penny all the way to $5.00 per line. This 5 reel and 25 payline game are full of symbols taken right out of the frigid cold, making this game as visually enjoyable as it is exciting. By betting the maximum $5.00 per line, you have the best chance of hitting some of the more bountiful payouts available.
Before you board your vessel and head out to sea in quest of riches beyond your wildest dreams, it is vital you know what all the symbols represent in the Polar Explorer. At the lower end of the paytable you have the playing card symbols of the Ace, King, Queen, Jack, Ten, and Nine. We move up to more rewarding symbols like the compass, seal, whale, and the polar bear. The lower paying symbols pay 150 coins for 5 of a kind where the higher paying polar bear pays an incredible 2,500 if all 5 are active on a line.
The two other symbols that make up the Polar Explorer video slot game are the ship and the explorer. The explorer is the wild symbol, substituting for any and all other symbols on active paylines. The scatter symbol ship pays for 3 or more anywhere on the reels, from 2 to 200 coins depending on how many appear after each spin.
Triggering the bonus features is unlike any other video slot game that you will play. Unlike having to get scatters or wilds to trigger the bonus round, in Polar Explorer you have to assemble a unique snowflake patter on the three center reels. Behind the symbols is a partial piece of a snowflake, and when all 3 center reels are positioned in a certain way, a giant snowflake will appear and trigger the bonus rounds. One of three different bonus features will be awarded once the snowflake is assembled.
The first bonus feature is the Explorer Feature. This round you are awarded 5 free games with the last two reels locked full of wild explorer symbols. This will explode winnings easily, and if you find 3 or more scatter symbols after a spin you are awarded an additional 5 free games.
The second bonus feature is the Discovery Feature. The player is rewarded with 8 free games, and at least one of the reels will have a wild explorer at all times. This increases the chances of scoring some easy money, and again 3 or more scatter ships will provide yet another 8 free games to keep the bonus round going even longer.
The last bonus is the Hidden Treasure Feature. Here you will be at the help of the ship and be able to point your harpoon gun at a variety of snow chests sitting inside the cave. Continue shooting that gun and revealing bonus symbols until there is a cave in. Once the cave in occurs, 8 free games will play out with all the awarded bonus symbols now in play as wild symbols. The bonus symbols will magically turn into a explorer wild and reward you accordingly. Three or more scatter ships will again retrigger the feature and add another 8 free spins to your remaining spins.
Notice that feature guarantee meter in the top right corner of the game? This unique section will tell you how likely you are of hitting the bonus feature after each spin. If you get the meter to 50% and feel like taking a chance, press the play button and red and green bars will scramble, where a spinning wheel will randomly land on one and either return you back to he game or trigger that bonus round instantly for you to play.
