SlotBeats has let its Slot of the Week accolade ‘slide’ into the hands of Jade Rabbit Studio for its “peaceful” title, Let It Slide.
With an RTP of 96.55 per cent and a high volatility implemented within the game, this 20-payline video slot incorporates a pays-both-ways mechanic and a maximum win potential of up to x12,000 the bet.
“Let It Slide packs plenty of wilds into a fun-filled hit, combining a pays both ways mechanic with a potentially unlimited bonus round for an action-packed icy adventure,” remarked Roger Admeus, Managing Director at Jade Rabbit Studio.
Packed with an array of special symbols, wilds substitute for all regular-pays and appear only on reels two through five. Moreover, wilds can appear in six additional forms: sliding, sliding multiplier, sticky, sticky multiplier, ice frame and stacked wilds.
Starting with sliding wilds, these appear on reels two through five only, and appear during the Let It Slide feature and can be upgraded to sliding multiplier wilds. The symbol’s default multiplier is x1, but when two sliding wilds overlay the same position, their multipliers will be added together for the duration of that one respin.
Meanwhile, sliding multiplier wilds appear after the first reflection during the Let It Slide feature. These multiply all wins they take part in by the value they’re carrying. Multiplier values can be indefinitely upgraded through consecutive reflections (an additional x1 for every reflection) in a single Let It Slide feature duration.
If two or more sliding multiplier wilds overlay the same position, their multipliers will be added together for the duration of that one respin.
Moving onto sticky wilds, these appear in place of the ice frame once the sliding wild passes through it.
Sticky multiplier wilds, on the other hand, appear after the sliding multiplier wild passes through the ice frame. Here, the multiplier value from the sliding multiplier wild will remain on the sticky multiplier wild for the duration of the feature.
The multiplier value of the sticky multiplier wild can be temporarily increased if at least one sliding wild or sliding multiplier wild overlays it for the duration of one respin. Any multiplier values of symbols overlaying the position of sticky multiplier wild will be added to its current multiplier value.
With the ice frame symbol, these can only appear on reels two, three, four and five, with one to two instances appearing when the Let It Slide feature is triggered.
If a sliding wild passes through the ice frame, a sticky wild will appear in the same position and another ice frame will be added in the random position on the screen. If a sliding multiplier wild passes through the ice frame, the sticky wild it generates will have the same multiplier for the duration of the feature. The maximum number of frames is 20.
Lastly, stacked wild symbols appear as 3×1 vertical icons, appearing only on reels one and six and can land either partially or fully visible. One fully visible stacked wild triggers the Let It Slide feature, while two fully visible stacked wilds (landing in the same base spin) trigger the free spins bonus.
Looking deeper into the Let It Slide feature, whenever a fully visible stacked wild lands, it will take part in any possible wins and then release a sliding wild onto the adjacent reel. All consecutive spins until the feature is over are free respins.
Here, the sliding wild begins travelling towards the opposite side of the screen, moving one reel per respin in a diagonal motion and bouncing off the top and bottom edges of the screen.
To bounce back, the sliding wild needs to hit any part of the stacked wild on the next respin. After the bounce, the sliding wild becomes the sliding multiplier wild with the multiplier value increased by one.
Sliding multiplier wilds can bounce off stacked wilds on reel one and six an unlimited number of times, therefore increasing their multiplier indefinitely as long as the feature is in progress.
Moving onto the free spins bonus, this is activated by landing two fully visible stacked wilds on reel one and six. The feature begins with two sliding wilds on opposite sides of the screen. Free spins are unlimited and continue as long as there is at least one sliding wild or sliding multiplier wild present on the screen.
