Theme and basic information about Polar Paws slot
The Polar Paws slot was released recently, in December of 2019. As you could guess it has the Christmas theme. There are polar bears with a New-year caps on their heads, the elves with the bags full of candies, Christmas wreaths, snow falling down in the background and some more different details of “New Year which coming soon”. The plot is simple, though fabulous and quite fancy. You need to collect both types of candies which the elves carry in their bags and scatter during the free spins game, and which lay into the red bowl and appear in a base game in the form of the Wild symbol.
The Polar Paws slot offers 5-reel, 3-row and 25 pay-lines, which pay from leftmost to right. So your win won’t be successful if the winning combination lands on the right side of the field (from right to left).
Betting mechanics in Polar Paws slot
There is no coin size option in this slot. On the control panel located at the bottom of the screen, you'll see only one customizable option that is “total bet”. This means you have to choose the bet size. It ranges from 0,25 cents (min bet) to 100 euros (max bet). If you bet 100 euro, coin value (amount of money you bet pet one pay-line) would be 4 euro, if it’s 10 euro the coin value will be 40 cents, and if it’s 1 euro, coin value will be 4 cents. As for bet-lines, their number isn’t adjustable.
There are 9 regular symbols in that slot. The highest paying symbol is the polar bear in the red Christmas-style cap with the glasses in the red backgrounds. The lowest paying symbol is “10” in the white-wooden backgrounds.
You’re able to win up to 1000 euro if you get all 5 symbols of the bear with the glasses and Christmas cap and your bet will be 100 euro. The minimum win per line equals 0,02 euro if you get 3 symbols of “10” sign and your bet will be 0,25 euro.
You should notice that there are two Wild features in this slot, the first one is the regular Wild symbol which can replace all other symbols except the Free Spins Scatter symbol, the Christmas Elf Progress Scatter symbol and the Multiplier Wild symbol. Also, take into account that this symbol can be considered as a regular 10th symbol and be the highest paying symbol with the highest win per line equals 4000 euros for collecting all 5 identical symbols with the Christmas wreaths depicted on them.
The other Wild symbol is the Multiplier Wild. This symbol looks like a bowl of candies and when one such symbol lands on the reels you earn a multiplier to a total win (except Free spins scatter). Moreover, it’s said that it acts like regular Wild.
The Scatter symbol in the Polar paws slot is the smiling elf with the bag of candies in his hands in a frame of golden color. Scatter symbols pay 3x win.
Ir you collect three or more Free Spin Scatter symbol, you’ll get 10 Free spins. You also can get free spins by compiling the needed amount of candies scattered by an elf during the Free spins round.
The bonus game wasn’t added to features of the Polar Paws slot. Instead of it you’re able to enjoy the fascinating Bears Turn Wild feature that will be described below.
It’s obvious that the Multiplier Wild feature is a special one in this slot. Besides, it can be a substitute for the regular Wild symbol. It also multiplies all the winnings you got during a particular spin:
If there is only one Multiplier Wild symbol appears during one spin, the total win will be multiplied in two times (x2)
If there are two Multiplier Wild symbols appears during one spin, the total win will be multiplied in three times (x3)
If there are three Multiplier Wild symbols appears during one spin, the total win will be multiplied in 4 times (x4)
Bears turn the wild feature.
This feature appears in the Free spins game. It looks like the same elf as on the regular Free spins symbol just without the golden frame. When “the elf” lands on the reels you get 1 candy. The more elves the more opportunity to be awarded by special Wild symbols which give you additional free spins (you collect candies and when you get needed number of them you get an extra free spin).
How multiplier works
As I said already (above), the Multiplier Wild pays total bet x2 or x3 or x4 depending on the number of symbols landed during one round.
Moreover, when you play free spins game and get the Elf Progress Scatter symbol, it pays a total bet x3. So, all your winnings will be multiplied in 3 times.
This slot doesn't have a progressive jackpot, though the max payout is 100000 euro which is a great reward for such a game.
RTP (return to player %) and Volatility
Especially, if you realise that the RTP level in this slot is 97,84% and it’s an impressively high coefficient which testifies the real chance to be successful and earn some money.
Sound and graphics
The high-quality graphics and audio of the slot game likely satisfy all the demands that you have. Both visuals and audio are well-created and can be estimated as high-quality components of the slot game. When a slot opens you can see an animation that is not an intro but provides players with the additional element of the Christmas story which used throughout the game.
List of the pros of Polar Paws slot:
high RTP level (it’s almost 98%)
nice graphics and sound
medium level of volatility
big free spins multiplier (moreover, it comes with a fascinating feature)
List of the cons of Polar Paws slot:
not unique theme (it’s created seamlessly, but it’s the pretty ordinary theme)
low maximum winning (as was already said, you won’t win big sums of money, but you’ll possibly save your own money till the end of the game due to the level of volatility in this slot)
The Polar Paws is a well-designed slot game that can raise your mood, especially during the Christmas holidays (winter time) with all its New-year animation. Its RTP level should make players certain in success. In fact, the only fly in the ointment is the absence of the possibility to win a life-changing amount of money by playing in this slot.
As for my own experience, I spent time with joy and fun. I love the slots with a low/medium level of volatility and high level of return to player. Just maybe, it would be better to play in this slot during the wintertime because of its New-Year atmosphere.
