For all ice hockey fans, the exciting thrill of watching their favourite team is a feeling that seems to be unparalleled. Now all ice hockey fans can play a slot offering all the raw fun of the sport of ice hockey. This provides fans a way to enjoy their game when it’s not being played on the ice rank. One of the best ice hockey slot machine games is “Ice Hockey” from Playtech.

“Ice Hockey” is a 5-reel 15-line video slot released by Playtech. This means there are five spinning reels from which you can form your winning combinations. Before you begin your match, you have to choose 2 opposing teams from 7 available countries: Finland, Sweden, Canada, USA, Russia, Germany, and Czech Republic. But any time you want you’ll be able to change the teams. Then you’ll be showed with the main board on which various symbols appear: 2 forwards from both teams, two full-backs from both teams, 2 goalkeepers from both teams, 2 any player icons for both teams, and numerous icons from playing cards as A, K, Q, J, 10 and 9. If you hit at least two symbols of a kind from team members on an enabled payline, you’ll win a prize. As for the remaining regular symbols, you need to have 3 or more of them to enjoy your prize.

Apart from a wide range of regular symbols, the game also offers you some special features.

Firstly, the symbol of Wild looks like ice hockey goal net. Wild means that it acts as a substitute for other symbols to complete winning combinations with the exception to other special symbols but it doesn’t substitute in mixed pay combinations. Additionally, for 2, 3, 4 or 5 of them, you’ll win 10, 200, 1000 or 10000 coins respectively.

Secondly, the symbol of Ice Hockey Logo acts here as Scatter. It can be scattered anywhere on the five reels to complete winning combinations, provided two or more Ice Hockey Logo Scatters appear.

Thirdly, the Free Games Flag scattered anywhere on reels 1 and 5 simultaneously activates 12 Free Spins with one team on the ice. There are two Free Games Flag symbols for both teams. So do your best to trigger the Free Spin Feature and wait for your winnings.

Fourthly, look for hockey puck which is a Bonus symbol in “Ice Hockey” slot. If it appears anywhere on 2nd reel with a left-side team member on its immediate left – it’ll play for left side team, and if it appears anywhere on 2nd reel with a right-side team member on its immediate right – it’ll play for right team. Trigger the Pass The Buck Bonus Feature and see what are you privileged to. You’ll be awarded 3x times the total bet for every Hockey Team member that touches the puck. The Pass The Puck Bonus Feature can only be triggered during the main Ice Hockey slot machine game.

Finally, a mixed combination is any combination of players from the same ice hockey team that are not all the same symbol. These ice hockey team members must appear on an active payline and on adjacent reels, beginning with either the leftmost or rightmost reel. During main game, mixed combinations of the first Hockey Team pay left to right and must begin on the leftmost reel, while mixed combinations from the second hockey team pay right to left and must begin on the rightmost reel.

Additionally, you can make the game even faster and more exciting by using the Stop Spin feature. Just click on the Stop button that appears in a place of Play button and decide when the spins should stop in order to combine a winning configuration for you.

The graphics is simple, but the design of team members is quite humorous. Unfortunately, you won’t be under huge impression by looking at the main board and listening to sound effects, but this is only the only disadvantage of this game.

Summing up, “Ice Hockey” slot from Playtech has a lot to offer to you, so it’s worth to decide to play this game. Satisfactory jackpot and large number of special features should compensate for average level of audiovisual effects.
