About Snowflakes

Snowflakes was released towards the ends of winter in 2017. That may not have been the best time to release a winter themed slot, but it has done alright for itself since. NextGen Gaming’s Snowflakes slot machine game offers wilds aplenty and is played over a 5-reel, 25-line structure. Those paylines are fixed, but the coin values in this slot certainly aren’t – they range from 1p up to £20. At the end of the day, players are going to be wagering anything from 30p per spin, up to £600 per spin. That’s a bit costly, though, since there are only 25 lines in the slot. You are, therefore, paying extra for special features in this game. It’s a good thing that there are plenty of them, then.

Special features

Standard wild symbols appear as frozen blocks of ice. These wilds can see you win up to 500 coins if you can land 5 on a line, and they will naturally replace other standard paying symbols in the slot, too.

Scatters appear as frozen orbs, and these symbols can offer up to 2,500 coins if you can land 5 anywhere on the reels. Scatter icons can also trigger a bonus round if 3 or more appear anywhere on the reels during a single spin.

At any point in the game, an Ice Wild feature may be randomly triggered. When it is, up to 5 symbols can turn into frozen wilds. Another randomly triggered feature exists, too, and it is known as the Wild Wind feature. It can see up to 5 wilds blown onto the reels and isn’t that different to the Icy Wild feature.

Bonus features

If you landed 3 or more scatters to trigger the Frozen Wilds bonus, you’re in for a treat. Either 7, 10, or 15 free spins are handed out for 3, 4 or 5 triggering scatters. In this bonus, any wilds which appear will be held in place and frozen for the remainder of the feature.


Snowflakes may be one of the best winter themed slots in terms of features. It certainly has the features to make that extra wager worth taking, even if we don’t like the concept of paying extra for special features in the first place.
