Stay Frosty is designed with Christmas, the holidays, ice, snow, and winter in mind, and specifically aimed at those in the Northern hemisphere, warm that cocoa and get comfortable. For those of you perspiring a little down south, I guess Northern or Southern hemispheres will slot in well for Christmas. Tge snowman you see is a symbol of happiness and celebration, so if life is sending you a blizzard, make that snowman. Cute and funny to look at, dressed or undressed, perhaps upside-down, take one of life’s most fragile things, the snowflake, and see what it can do when they all stick together.

Game Play

When a wild symbol appears on a winning payline, it'll stay sticky for 2 spins. When a sticky wild forms a new win, its remaining sticky spins counter is not increased. All wilds that are part of a winning combination remain sticky through the entire free spins round. Don't want to wait to win free spins? You can make use of the buy feature to access free spins with sticky wilds that persist until the free spins mode is over.
The so-called "Stay Wilds" can only land on reels 2-4, and they replace for all regular symbols which helps to complete winning combos. If a wild is apart of a win, it stays sticky for 2 spins more, it's all in the name “Stay Wild”. The wild holds zero value on its own, and the top 3 premiums pay 1, 2 and 4 x your stake for 5 of a kind victories. The "Merry Reindeer" Bonus Round gets triggered when you land at least 3 reindeer scatters anywhere on the grid. You can win 10, 15 or 20 free spins when you land 3,-5 scatters, and this also gifts a scatter win of 5, 10 or 50 x your stake. Wilds part of a win become sticky during the feature and there's no option to retrigger the bonus round.

You may buy the feature at any time, well, at least if you live in an eligible jurisdiction. Per usual, this bonus buy feature is unavailabe for those in the UK.

You;re granted the pleasure of witnessing the "Stay Wild" feature in action with plenty of wilds that lead up to some okay payouts. Then you purchase the top-tier bonus round at 1:16 into the 5-minute highlights video. Just about filling the 3 middle reels with sticky wilds early on awarded plenty of solid payouts.

Features

This 5-reel, 100 payline video slot is bursting with holiday cheer and innovative Sticky WILDS that stay Sticky for 2 spins when part of a winning combination. The Snowman symbol is WILD and varies in size from small to tall. Follow the Merry Reindeer to an instant scatter pay and free spins, where winning wild symbols stay Sticky for the entire round, ensuring that your players will receive an exciting payout just in time for the holidays. The slot is cozy in a very glossy and commercialized way. Clearly a casual Christmas release that people can relax with during the holiday season. The visual presentation is not as 3D and cinematographic as you might be used to from this developer, but they’ve conjured up a compelling snow-filled environment.

Performance

The winning wilds stay in place for 2 spins and there are free spins with the sticky winning wilds. However, the max win of x 922 is low and disappointing. The gameplay is very straight forward stuff, and small to mid sized payouts will keep you going until the bonus round is triggered. Sticky wilds is a very classic feature indeed, but this would have been a more attractive prospect with some multiplier action and a higher potential.

Max Coin

Maximum win of x 922.48.

Conclusion

What better way to start off the holiday’s than to play a Christmas-themed slot? Stay Frosty is postcard beautiful, just as Christmas should be. It will take you to a cottage at the North Pole, where you will enjoy the snow, the magnificent aurora lights, and hopefully a good win. Get ready for an exciting payout just in time for the holidays.
