Top Real Time Gaming Gaming Casinos

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.

    RTG slots are regularly simple but good machines, and Polar Explorer has decent payouts and decent winning average, and although to trigger free spins feature is harder than in another RTG games, you can count with feature guarantee as the most useful feature on this slot, giving you the feeling you can beat this game whenever you want, at least enough to clear some bonuses.

    I've been playing a few RTG games the past couple of weeks, chasing some of these random jackpots that I've not won for such a long time, and I put a few hundred spins through Polar Explorer during this - I never knew about the feature whereby if you line up a snowflake in the background of reels 2,3 and 4 you get a feature, prior to this! Just goes to show, I never used to pay any attention to the paytables lol :) Like most RTG games, this pays out really very well if you catch it on a good day, and despite the multitude of different features, each still seems to have decent potential, which goes to show it can be done! Respect RTG :)
