Online slots are a fun way to pass the time when it's too cold and icy to go outside. And Snowmania is a winter-themed slot that allows you to experience the chilly weather from the comfort of your own home.
This 20-payline slot combines a winter and Christmas theme that's good for the holidays. It also offers some nice features that make it worth playing any time of year. Let's discuss these features along with what else to expect from Snowmania slots.
Exploding Ice Blocks & Big Wins
Snowmania has the perfect winter atmosphere, from the reels to the background graphics. The latter includes a snowman and cottage along with icy trees lining the landscape. The snowman is the most-noticeable part of the background, because he moves around and celebrates your wins.
This game's reels are fashioned into ice blocks, with symbols encased inside each block on the 5x3 grid. Symbols from winning combinations explode, allowing icons from above to fall into their place. This gives you the chance to form multiple wins in the same turn.
Symbols include a candy filled stocking, bell, Christmas present, Christmas hat, carrot, gingerbread man, holly & mistletoe, and Ice Wild game logo.
The game logo substitutes for all other icons to form wins. But keep in mind that the Ice Wild logo only appears in reels 2, 3, and 4. The candy filled stocking pays the most, offering 2,500 coins for a 5-symbol combination.
Snowmania's graphics are decent and do a good job of creating a unique online slot. But we're not overly impressed with them in comparison to some of the more-modern slots.
Snowmania Special Features - Win Multipliers & Free Spins
One of the best things about Snowmania is that you can earn multipliers on exploding payouts. You receive a 2x multiplier on two consecutive wins, 3x on three wins, and a 5x multiplier on four wins and beyond.
Landing 3 or more Christmas present scatter symbols anywhere on the reels triggers free spins. You get 10 free spins along with a 3x multiplier.
The multiplier increases to 6x after the second win, 9x after the third win, and 15x after the fourth win. Also note that getting another three Christmas presents will provide an additional 5 free games.
Solid Game for the Winter Time
Snowmania doesn't blow us away with its graphics. But this game provide enough to make it worth playing when you're stuck inside and looking to play a game that reflects the season.
The exploding wins and multipliers give you a chance to form huge wins. This is especially the case when you get consecutive exploding wins in the bonus round, where multipliers go up to 15x.
We also like how the reels are fashioned into ice blocks, which further sells the chilly theme. That said, it's worth giving Snowmania at least one try. You may find that the features and atmosphere make this game worth playing multiple times.
