When you feel like you’re melting in the middle of a hot summer day, you sometimes wish it was wintertime, with its icy weather that would feel so refreshing now. Well, we can’t help you change the season, but we can make you feel a bit revitalized with a nice slot recommendation that features a theme you’ll surely like – it’s RTG’s “Polar Explorer”, a game for those with adventurous spirit and a brave heart.

“Polar Explorer” Characteristics

This chilly video slot is played on five reels and 25 paylines, offering plenty of winning chances, ice-blue graphics with loads of polar characters on them – apart from the explorer, there are seals, polar bears, big ships, compasses, etc. Also, there’s a range of frosty poker symbols along with additional winning opportunities brought about by special features, such as wilds, scatters, and three bonus features that can really turn out to be lucrative ones.

If you don’t think you’ll be able to trigger the bonus feature, there’s no need to worry – for just a bit extra money (20%) on top of your bet, you’ll be able to benefit from the Feature Guarantee option, which will trigger the feature after a certain number of spins if you don’t get it in the meantime, or allow you to try and trigger it yourself instantly – only in this case the percentage of your chances to hit it will be displayed above the reels.

When it comes to “Polar Explorer’s” bet sizes, they come in all amounts – coins range from 1 cent to $5, which means that the maximum bet, with the Feature Guarantee addition included, amounts to $150 – enough even for highrollers.

Special Features

This section of the game is really worth the time and money invested in it, as apart from the standard wilds and scatters, it involves three different bonus rounds, each of which may boost your balance and recover whatever you’ve lost before triggering them.

The wild symbol is embodied in the explorer himself, and it appears very often, substituting for other regular symbols.

The scatter in shape of a ship has its basic function in the base game – to pay any, but gets a special role in those bonus rounds, where three of them serve to retrigger the feature.

As for the three bonus rounds, what’s special about them is not just their number, it’s also how they’re triggered. Namely, you’ll rarely see that poker symbols have any special purpose in slots, but in “Polar Explorer” it’s reels that contain nothing but poker symbols, with parts of a snowflake in the background that trigger the bonus rounds – when the snowflake appears complete on reels 2, 3, and 4, one of the following features will be yours:

Explorer Feature, which awards 5 free spins throughout which reels 4 and 5 will be wild, bringing better winning odds. This is the best of the three bonus features, payout-wise.

Discovery Feature, in which you get 8 free spins, during which explorer will always appear on at least one reel, either alone or grouped. This feature can be retriggered just twice, and it does not always pay out generously – so don’t get your hopes too high.

Hidden Treasure Feature, which takes you to a snow cave where you’ll find five chests – each hiding a bonus symbol. Open as many as you are allowed before the cave-in occurs, and the symbols revealed (up to three of them) will function as additional wilds during the 8 free spins that this feature gives you. Five extra games will be awarded whenever three or more scattered ships appear on the reels, and the overall impression is that this feature can give away some very decent payouts.


“Polar Explorer” is the proof that RTG never sleeps – it has once again managed to surprise us with its imagination and innovativeness, which will surely be rewarded with many fans of this fantastic title.

    I don't get this game either, it is way too hard to trigger, and payouts have been meager for me on any bet size. I would recommend only playing this one if you are bored, and need a change, maybe you will be a lucky one to see it payout.

    This is one of the best games out there, on any software platform. It is a beautiful game with a huge amount of possible activity. It does usually require you to start off with at least enough to make 50 or so spins, but if you have that it will pay out like nothing else. It is one of the games that has the built in bonus guarantee, which means that if you don't hit the bonus within a certain number of spins it will automatically start one for you. The game has several bonus games that you can hit before the guarantee bonus, all of which can really pay big. You can start one of these bonus rounds by getting the snowflake to fully form. If you are good at using the stop button on slots it will come in really handy on this game The guarantee is always the same type bonus which isn;t the most spectacular but nothing to sneeze at. I would recommend this game to anyone that has enough credits available to make it to the bonus round because that's where this game beats others hands down.

    Polar Explorer was one of my favorite games when I started online casino :) This game has Feature Guarantee with 125 Spins, but the Guarantee bet is quite high. The free spins can be trigger in quite an unique way. And there are three features. You have chance to get the entire paylines with wilds. There is no multiplier with wilds or in free spin feature. This is an interesting game.

    I have played this slot mostly with the feature garantee and it did not make the best impression. I don't know if it is better without the feature guarantee because I have never played the 'normal' slot. The feature might pay good or might not and I never understood how it comes too. For me, this is not a good slot because it cost me some money and I never saw a decent win, mostly dead spins, dead spins. Well, I played with some bonus money but still. It does not suits me. Probably you don't need the feature garantee as the feature comes during the 147 spins and after that it starts from zero again.

    I like this slot. I won a few times some amounts that makes me feel good ( 2 times over 100euro and the best was one time 220euro). This is a 5 reels with 25 paylines slot. I ussualy play this slot in 1$ (when I have a decend bankroll) but often I fluctuate bets between 0.25 and 0.75. It is a slot that I recommend you to play because you can win something. From me 5 stars because I had a few wins.

    Ok game.

    I actually can agree and I think that the payouts for this game are quite good. I also like the fact you can place small bets for the Feature Guaranteed and I've always got a feature much faster than in the guaranteed time. I visually like this slot but I cannot recognize the features visually (like other slots have 3 scatters etc, this game has different looking features) but I think it is really worth giving a try.

    I like this slot because it can pay well. I have hit it when it is hot a few times and the payout is great, kinda like the game Vulcan. I remember seeing the Explorer symbol all over the reels, it just kept taking up all of the slot game, it was great, it just kept paying me, I thought there was something wrong with the slot, :) but it was working fine, mighty fine, that is how I came to frequent this slot when I play RTG. I have had it though pay next to nothing sometimes, and so I leave, and come again later.

    For me Polar Explorer is one different game from RTG slots. There is strange way to get into some game features.When in background of reel 3, 4 and 5 you collect all pieces from "snowflake" you will get one of three very generous features. Just like wscalley, I didn't realize that there are parts from snowflake until I didn't get whole snowflake for the first time and get 5 free spins from Explorer Feature. Anyway, this is very good game and I rate it 4/5
