The Ice Breaker is a Push Gaming video slot set in a cold ocean, where you can attempt to catch massive fish, preferably in combination with a nice multiplier

Do you love fishing? And do you love making lots of money? Perhaps Ice Breaker is precisely what you are looking for!

Besides the original theme, these games also have truly innovative bonus features and excellent payout rates- exactly the kinds of things you look for when you are a slots player.

The very high payout rate

This cool Ice Breaker slot again has an attractive RTP of 96.79%. And that is no less than 0.5% – 1.5% higher compared to most other online slots.

That could be the difference between a winning and a losing session. There are simply a smidge fewer winning combinations in the game that the Random Number Generator can end up on.

How does the Ice Breaker slot work?

Ice Breaker is played on 5 reels with 3 rows of symbols. The win all ways mechanism is active, which means there are no fixed paylines but 243 ways to win.

Symbols and payouts

The fish, no matter how dopey they look, are the big money makers with Ice Breaker.

The red fish has the highest value and will pay out 10 x the bet with 5-of-a-kind. The orange fish can also deliver some sweet moolah: 6 x the wager. All other fish are worth between 2 x and 4 x the total bet.

The card symbols 10, J, Q, K and A are mainly filler: they only get you 0.8 x the bet with 5 identical ones.

The oyster with the pearl inside is the wild symbol and replaces all other symbols, except for the scatter symbol. The wild occurs mainly in reels 2, 3, 4, and 5.

Collapsing symbols

When 2 or more of the same symbols appear above one another, they will crush the symbols below through their weight, making them disappear from the screen. Subsequently, the multiplier will be increased by +1. Then new symbols tumble down to replace the old ones, and the process can repeat.

Sometimes this feature can also deliver surprisingly nice outcomes, but other times there is absolutely nothing to be had, and then it does feel like a pointless exercise.


Free spins bonus

Three scattered hammers on reels 1, 3 and 5 get you the free spins bonus.

You now receive 6 free spins. During the free spins, all low-value symbols (the card symbols) have been removed.

This not only increases your chances for a prize but also the odds for higher rewards. The free spins can be retriggered.

These free spins can pay out quite nicely, but at the same time, they feel somewhat dull. The addition of an extra booster would have made the whole thing just that much more exciting.


Our verdict on the Ice Breaker video slot?

With Ice Breaker, Push Gaming has delivered a fun but not a very remarkable slot.

The collapsing symbol feature can get you excellent payouts but is often unnecessary. At times you are obligated to watch several collapsing symbol animations, while it is already abundantly clear that it is never going to amount to a blessed thing.

It is also too bad that the free spin bonus does not have anything extra to give, except for the fact that the low symbols are removed: no boosters, no extra multipliers, no mystery prizes.

So, can we only complain about this game?

No, that would not be fair. The fish look very funny, just because they look so dopey. And the very high payout rate of almost 97% is, of course, top-notch. This high RTP adds that much-needed half star to Ice Breaker’s final rating.
