Polar Bash is, as it sounds like, a slot based both on life at the very cold North Pole, and on a big party that the region’s inhabitants are having. Powered by Microgaming, the game delivers an impressive array of features and graphics which involve drunk fish, polar bears, penguins, seals, sleigh dogs, orcas and even a snow man. There are no wilds, but the game has scatters, multipliers, free spins and a bonus game, and they should prove sufficient. You will get 20 lines on 5 reels, with a chance to win a prize of $60,000.
Betting and Prizes
The game has a range for its bets which starts from $0.01 and it can be taken up to $100. That largest bet will have 200 coins in it, 10 for each of the 20 lines. As for the coin bet range, it will be from $0.01 to $0.50.
You’re getting a very good top payout in Polar Bash, a 12,000x multiple which is considerably better than what you can expect in most slots. You can win $60,000 with its help.
Polar Bash Slot Features
Scatter symbols are the only feature icons that are included in this case. You will use 3 to 5 adjacent scatters, on neighboring reels but not necessarily on the same line, to get paid and to trigger a feature. The prize goes only from 2x to 10x total bet, but you also have the Ice Fishing Bonus that starts up at the same time. You have to pick three Fish icons, and you will get a prize which reaches 15,000 coins.
Second, there is the North Pole Sign, another scatter symbol. It is also required to appear on adjacent reels in order to be of help to you, but it will pay better, between 2x and 50x the bet. It is used as a trigger for 25 free spins and their 2x multiplier. These spins can be re-triggered.
Theme & Design
It’s an unusual choice of theme, I’ll give it that, even if the North Pole angle has been chosen by other slots before. The idea to make party animals out of the local fauna is one that I haven’t seen any other slot approach in the past. It’s done quite well, all the symbols being chosen from the land or sea creatures of the region.
Polar Bash slot gets you a very interesting theme, a good design and excellent payouts, that last one being the main reason why I’d play it. On the list of downsides, the features are nowhere near as fun as in other slots, especially with wilds missing and the scatters being required to appear on certain reels.
