D&D Icewind Dale
D&D Icewind Dale
For a slot experience that captures the vivid imagination of the Dungeons & Dragons series without the adolescent stench of a geeky gaming den, look no further than Treasures of Icewind Dale. The third title in IGT’s Dungeons & Dragons series, Treasures of Icewind Dale sees four new heroes embark on a quest to the ice dragon’s lair, where some huge prizes can be won courtesy of a free spins feature with collectable wilds. That being said, prizes in the base game can also be pretty substantial thanks to the stacks of symbols featuring across the slot’s five reels and 30 paylines.
Dungeons & Dragons: Treasures of Icewind Dale features a sword-and-sorcery theme in which four adventurers take on a monstrous dragon located deep within a frozen cave. Named Drizzt, Wulfgar, Catti-Brie and Bruenor, the quartet of heroes all feature as high value symbols on the reels alongside orcs, various bits of equipment and the Dungeons & Dragons logo. The game also features a fairly epic soundtrack, with plenty of dramatic music adding to the atmosphere as you battle your way through the tundra and into the dragon’s lair.
Dungeons & Dragons: Treasures of Icewind Dale utilises the same Dynamic Stacks feature that is used in a number of IGT titles. This ensures that at the start of each spin, one random symbol will be chosen to feature as a stack across all five reels, meaning hefty payouts are available in each game. This aspect of the slot becomes increasingly valuable during the free spins feature, however, which is triggered by landing three golden dice symbols on reels two, three and four. When this happens, players will receive 15 free spins on an increasingly valuable set of reels, with special D20 dice icons appearing on the fifth reel to turn a new adventurer wild for every three that are collected. Free spins can also be retriggered up to a maximum of 225 games, making it a hugely rewarding feature.
While an actual Dungeons & Dragons campaign is an incredibly complicated thing to master, the slot equivalent is a great deal more straightforward. Treasures of Icewind Dale includes 30 fixed paylines, meaning the only variable that needs to be adjusted by players is their bet per line amount. This number ranges from £0.01 to £2.00 – which in turn makes the game playable from anywhere between £0.30 and £60.00 – though players should be warned that it’s a medium-high variance title.
Whether you were a seasoned Dungeons & Dragons campaigner during your youth or are simply drawn to the slot by the presence of Dynamic Stacks and a hugely rewarding free spins feature, there’s no denying that Treasures of Icewind Dale is an absolute blast to play. The variance in the game means payouts can sometimes be as barren as the wasteland that the slot’s set in, but when they do come around they’re more than capable of thawing out your frozen bankroll.
