Tiger’s Ice is an online slot developed by Microgaming. 

It has a 5x5 layout and 3125 ways to win. The variable RTP averages 96.2%, and the variance is high. It's set in a mysterious icescape where a sabretooth tiger roams, and bonuses include rolling reels, echo reels and free spins. There are also upsizer and buy bet features.


Tiger’s Ice is a long way from the 9 Pots of Gold slot, though both have their own thrills. Move way from Irish greenery and on to a glittering icescape of five reels across five rows, where an astonishing 3125 ways to win are joined by a dazzling array of features and modifiers sending extra reels tumbling, opening extra winning chances and even adding multipliers to an already exciting free spins round. Here’s our Tiger's Ice slot review.

Theme, Graphics & Soundtrack

The Tiger's Ice online slot doesn’t take place in a world we know. There’s something prehistoric about it and something mystical. Ice and snow cover the jagged mountains, and there are mysterious inscriptions on the rocks. The bonus wheel turns slowly behind the icy blocks of the reels. The symbols include duller low-paying card symbols with their rough-hewn shapes, and then sparkling higher-paying symbols like a glittering flower. The only living creature in sight is the sabretooth tiger in all her beautiful deadly majesty and slightly cuter, fluffier cubs. The music is delicate, gentle and intriguing. You haven’t seen many video slots like this.

Tiger's Ice RTP and Variance

What’s the point of RTP, or return to player average? Well, you take one slot machine and put it next to another slot machine, and RTP makes it easier to see how they compare. That becomes a little more difficult when the RTP is variable. That’s right: casinos adjust the RTP of their slot games. We played at a pretty good 96.2%, but you may want to double-check yours.

High rollers smile and everyone else brace: the Tiger's Ice slot is high variance. Yes, you can find some bigger individual wins, but not very often. The risk increases just like the reward.

How to Play Tiger’s Ice

Wrap up warm and prepare to spin:

  1. Controls are mostly on the right. That’s where you’ll find the menu button, providing links to both the paytable and the settings page.
  2. There are only two settings - quick spin and sound. There is a separate quick spin button on the main screen. 
  3. Also on the right you’ll see the stack of coins of the bet adjustor. There’s another one down in the bottom corner. Making a bet in a slot machine is about balancing budget and risk.
  4. Another part of responsible gaming is win, loss and time limits. Keep an eye on your balance, win sizes and clock.
  5. Even if you use autoplay, you’ll still have to stay close to the game because you can’t include your limits as stopping points.
  6. Autoplay gives you up to 100 spins, and spin just gives you one, but however you do it, enjoy.

Take breaks and play responsibly.

Tiger’s Ice Bonus Features

This is where you can really see how Tiger’s Ice’s format puts it among the best modern video slots. Not all slot games have this much depth in their features.

Rolling Reels

These are like what would be called cascading symbols or an avalanche feature in other slots. Symbols from winning combinations disappear and new ones roll into their place, offering you an extra chance at a win.

Echo Roll

You win once and echo roll immediately awards you a guaranteed extra win. You don’t need to do anything.

Free Spins

Start by finding at least three scatters for eight free spins (with every extra scatter adding another two). Then spin the bonus wheel. It comes with several different modifiers: +2 free spins, +4 free spins, 2x multiplier, 3x multiplier.

You can also remove low-paying symbols from the reels during echo rolls, or make it so the echo roll only includes wilds. During free spins, rolling reels come with a multiplier of 1x, 2x or 3x, and every scatter adds an extra free spin.

Upsizing can increase the free spins modifier on the bonus wheel, for a price, or you can purchase eight free spins with the buy bonus.

Tiger's Ice Review

This is what we imagine when we think of modern video slots. Beautiful glittering graphics creating an enthralling world that’s at once familiar and strange. An unusual format, from the layout to the rolling reels, and of course the bonus wheel modifying the already exciting free spins. As far as Alchemy Gaming and Microgaming free slots go, it really stands out from the crowd.

What is the RTP of Tiger’s Ice?

It’s not always easy to answer, because it depends a little on your chosen casino. It’s an adjustable RTP. We encountered it at 96.2%, which is the sort of figure we'd recommend, but double-check your version first. You may not be able to guarantee returns, but a good RTP does offer some reassurance.

What is the variance of Tiger’s Ice?

Not so reassuring, at least if you’re a new or cautious player, is the high variance of Tiger’s Ice. It’s a risky way to play, though high rollers like it because it does offer opportunities for some bigger wins. There’s a lot of tension in trying to find that elusive success.

What modifiers come with the Tiger’s Ice free spins bonus round?

Tiger’s Ice has a free spins bonus round, triggered by three or more scatters and starting at eight spins. It also adds multipliers to the rolling reels (a cascading symbols/avalanche type feature), can remove low-paying symbols and add wilds to the echo reel features, and lets you spin the bonus wheel for additional spins or multipliers.
