Polar Pioneers slot focuses on a topic that is very attractive to me, and probably to anyone else that grew up reading about valiant explorers that reached the most dangerous places on our planet, this happening even before technology made it a regular thing. I’m talking here about the first explorers that reached the North Pole, the game appearing to be inspired by them. You have steam powered ice breakers, you have men dressed in heavy winter coats and dogs pulling sleighs in those regions, all symbols present on the 5 reels of the game. Features will deliver you scatters and wilds, re-spins and free spins with multipliers. You have your chance at a prize of $30,000, if you cover the slot’s 25 lines with appropriate bets.
Betting and Prizes
Polar Pioneers gets you access to a game with 25 lines, activating for you as many lines as you use coins for. You may have 1 to 20 coins for just one line, so with 25 lines active you can have up to 500 total. Luckily for your budget, those coins aren’t worth much, the biggest denomination being at $0.10. You can spend $50 per round, if you want to.
I’m a big fan of the sort of reward that Polar Pioneers will promise a player, five symbols of the right kind delivering up to 15,000x back, which could mean $30,000.
Polar Pioneers Slot Features
That top jackpot that I previously mentioned, sitting at 15,000x the line bet, is provided by a combo of five Explorer wilds, all sitting on the same payline and forming their own combination. Of course, if you don’t manage to form a combo with wilds alone, you can get them to help you with others, substituting for whatever symbol is needed in that position.
The Sleigh Dogs are the scatters of Polar Pioneers. You use them in random locations, the important thing being to have at least two to get a prize, or at least three to get a feature. Prizes range from 2x to 125x total bet.
Should only two scatters appear, in addition to the prize you also get a 2nd chance re-spin, the symbols being locked in place while the others are spinning for free, trying to get you at least one extra scatter, so that you can trigger the feature.
If you do get 3+ scattered Dogs, you trigger 10 free spins and their 2x multiplier. You can retrigger free spins at this point, with another set of 3+ scatters.
Theme & Design
The title, Polar Pioneers slot, describes the theme well, while the symbols manage to represent it with symbols that start with the Explorer, continue with the steam ship, the Husky dogs, the heavy winter boots, a compass and an ice pick. The others are all poker cards which are frozen solid.
Polar Pioneers awards big prizes, and a jackpot of 15,000x should be the main advantage that you get from this game, especially since you can in theory double it to 30,000x in free spins mode.
