Frozen Gems slot review (Play’n GO)

Frozen Gems is a bit of a different beast. The slot has some original elements, coupled with some notable run-off-the-mill features. Despite the latter, though, the slot has plenty to offer in terms of gameplay!

Frozen Gems – figure out how this one works!

Nevertheless, something misses for it to be a fantastic blockbuster slot. Perhaps, it’s the theme? I never get much excited when I see gems and some ice, I guess.

But if you ignore that, we’re talking about a great slot. Moreover, it also has some serious win potential!

Frozen Gems: the maximum win is a stunning 10,000x

Most Play’n GO slots have a default max win of 5,000x, so this one is one to pay attention to.  Simple maths tells us that if you stake a hundred, that’s indeed possible to land the cool million.


Number of paylines: 5×3 set-up with 243 up to 8.748 win all ways

RTP and variance: 96.36%, Medium to High variance

Maximum win: 10,000 x the bet or  $€1.0 million

Betting range: $€0.20 – $€100

Bonus features: Free spins

Casino Hipster verdict: HOT!  Cunning and original gameplay for a slot that unfortunately lacks some x-factor.

Frozen Gems slot – Gameplay and Features

Frozen Gems has some surprising gameplay, so please allow me to explain it in a bit more detail.

The slot has 5 reels and 3 rows of symbols and has 243 ways to win. It also works with the Avalanche (cascading)  mechanic. So, you get a free respin after a win, where the winning symbols disappear and make way for new ones.

The four high-paying symbols are four orange, pink, purple and green coloured gems.  As low-paying symbols, we have the 10, J, Q, K and A. Furthermore, you have Wild symbols (golden W’s) and Scatters (blue and gold-framed gems). 

Bonus symbols

Above the reels, you see an additional row with five frozen symbols.

  • 2 of the 5 are an x2 symbol
  • 1 or 2 are an x3 symbol
  • 1 or 2 are a W symbol

Below each of these five symbols, you see the number “3”. If you land a win, and the corresponding reel is part of the win, the number changes to “2”. If you win three consecutive times (which is possible thanks to the free respins), you see that the number becomes a golden spot. As of that moment, you activate the x2, x3 or the W symbol.

  • If the symbol is a “W,” all symbols on the corresponding reel transform into Wilds.
  • Suppose the symbol has an “x2” all symbols on that reel split into two mini-symbols. You’ll have 6 symbols on the reel, thereby improving your odds to win with the next respin.
  • An “x3” symbol splits all symbols of the reel into three mini-symbols. It yields a reel with 9(!) symbols.

If you have 2 reels with 6 symbols and 2 reels with 9 symbols, we’re talking about 8,748 ways to win (3x6x6x9x9 = 8748). 

How do you get the free spins?

Pretty straightforward with this slot. You need to land 3 Scatters, to trigger 9 free spins. Each additional scatter yields another free spin.

Also, during the free spins, it’s possible to trigger more free spins. Again, each extra scatter gets you an additional free spin. There are no limits!

The free spins – with an increasing total multiplier

In terms of gameplay, the free spins play similar to the main game. There is one crucial difference, though: the increasing multiplier.

If you get a win, the multiplier increases by +1. This multiplier is applied to all remaining wins during the free spins.

Believe me. It can become very lucrative if you get many wins at the beginning (and build up a high multiplier). If you manage to land a massive win in the end, you know it’s checkout!

Payout percentage (RTP)

The RTP of Frozen Gems is 96.36%, and that’s pretty good, as long as you play the game at an online casino that offers this RTP. Unfortunately, there are plenty of online casinos that offer the same game at less favourable conditions. Always verify the RTP of the slot in question.

Frozen Gems slot: the variance is medium to high

The variance is medium to high, according to Play’n, GO (score is 7 out of 10).

I expect that most top wins will be around 500x to 1000x. If you land a more significant win, you’re very fortunate, or you’ve spun a hundred thousand times.

Pros en Cons


  •  Interesting gameplay
  •  Thrilling with the increasing multiplier and  a potential 8 thousand ways to win
  • Massive win potential


  • The theme is a bit dull
  • The X-factor is missing

So, who’ll like the slot? And who won’t?

Advanced players will be positively surprised, thanks to the distinct and varied gameplay. There is plenty of excitement, thanks to the free spins with the multipliers. If you are a novice player, the gameplay may be a little too overwhelming.
