All the Species of Arctic Agents
All the action in Arctic Agents slots games takes place in the freezing wastes of the Arctic, with Penguins and the Polar Bear who is the villain of the piece, and a Killer Whale armed with pistols. The agents are all species of animals, and you will see an Arctic Fox wearing spectacles and carrying bags of money. There are also some iceberg hut hideaways decorated with gems, and later there will be some snow cat robbers making an appearance. The background is blue and white and cold looking. The symbols with the lower value are the standard playing cards, from Ten to the Ace.
Arctic Agents is a Microgaming production, and has five reels and nine pay lines. It is a slot game that will appeal to most players, whether beginners or regular players, as it is easy to play, and follows Microgaming’s winning formula. Potential bonus opportunities are greeted with some happy animated fanfare.
The Penguin is the Main Secret Agent
The Penguin with a gun and a top secret briefcase is the hero of Arctic Agents, and is also the Wild. He can substitute for all other symbols in a winning combination, including his female partner, but excluding the Scatter symbol. Wins obtained from winning combinations in which the Wild forms a part, are automatically doubled. During the free spins bonus round all Wild wins are multiplied by twice whatever the set of the multiplier is.
A Lucrative Free Spins Bonus Round
The Scatter symbol is the Ice Pyramid headquarters, and if you land three or more of them anywhere on the reels you will trigger the free spins round. During this round you see why this game is called Arctic Agents, and you have to choose one of the five Penguin agents, to see which free spin mission you will be going on, and what your prizes will be. You could be awarded three free spins together with a multiplier of fifteen, or five free spins with a multiplier of ten, or ten free games with a multiplier of five. There are more options that you could be given, like fifteen free spins with a multiplier of three, or finally, you could be given twenty free spins with a multiplier of two.
The Scatter Symbol
If you find more Ice Pyramids Scatters on reels 1 or 5 during the free spins bonus round, you will activate a random multiplier of anything from two times to fifty times your total bet in Arctic Agents. This will be on top of any extra wins you may make during the free spins round. Three or more Scatter symbols will also give you a good payout, with a very good prize offered for five Iceberg Scatters appearing on the reels. The free spins bonus round cannot be retriggered.
There is no progressive jackpot in Arctic Agents, but there is a pretty good jackpot of 12,000 coins that you can win. This slot game is a game great for new players, or even those players looking for a more easy going game than Microgaming usually produces. The game play is fairly simple, but the bonus games do get activated regularly.
