Microgaming Launches Icy Gems in Time for Winter Holidays

Publish: 25.12.2018

Winter is fast approaching and developers around the world are getting preparing their winter-themed games for launch. One of those games is Microgaming’s latest addition to its line-up of premium video slots.

Meet Icy Gems, the brand-new release developed by Just For The Win, and available exclusively for Microgaming and its partners.

The Winter is Coming

Icy Gems is a five-reel three-row video slot with 20 fixed paylines, developed in HTML5, which means it offers the same level of quality on both desktop and mobile devices. This is good news for all those players who like to enjoy their slots on the go.

As its name suggests, the reels are populated with colourful gems of various shapes and sizes. Players will encounter such symbols as green emeralds, red rubies, purple amethysts, and blue diamonds, as well playing card symbols, game logo – the game’s highest paying icon – and the Wild that has the power to substitute for all other symbols, and form additional winning combinations.

Icy Gems: Get ready for the winter with Microgaming's latest game!
Some may be disappointed as Icy Gems doesn’t have features such as the Free Spins or bonus rounds on offer. Instead, this game is all about gathering symbols and collecting them in the Symbol Storage located on the left side of the screen, next to the reels. After every winning combination, a symbol from that combo gets added to the storage.

Gather Symbols to Boost Your Winnings

The ultimate goal is to get the storage full, and that can be achieved by hitting three back-to-back winning combinations, which will trigger one of three available Superspin features:

  • Silver Superspin – triggered with three different icons in the storage. Reels will feature only these three symbols.
  • Gold Superspin – two different types of symbols are featured when it’s activated.
  • Big Win Superspin – activated by three symbols of the same kind. Watch out for this one, since it guarantees a huge prize.

Icy Gems is ready for the upcoming holiday season, and Microgaming is convinced it will become popular with punters. The game may lack in features, but it offers action-packed gameplay and sufficient opportunities to win. Check it out at any of Microgaming-powered online casinos this winter.

Commenting on the launch of this game, David Reynolds, Games Publisher at Microgaming, said Just For The Win was back with another dazzling slot exclusive for Microgaming, bringing the thrill of the casino with proven slot mechanics and optimised gameplay, and featuring a cool and clean design suited for players on any device.

He added Icy Gems was perfect for those looking for fun and enjoyable gameplay that built anticipation towards big wins during the festive period and pointed out he was forward to more thrilling games from Just For The Win in 2019.

Tiger Holmgren, Chief Product Officer at Just For The Win said his company was thrilled to see Icy Gems released just in time to kick off the festive season. He stated Icy Gems was a fast-paced game that built excitement in multiple levels, from the respin feature that drove the player to collect winning symbols and launch the Superspin feature for potentially big wins.

The game follows a recent string of new releases, including Astro Legends slot.
