If you have a sense of adventure and you enjoy online slots, then Polar Explorer by RTG is worth checking out. This is a 5 reel, 25 payline video slot that will speak to the adventurer in you. The slot is set against the backdrop of snowy mountains and terrain yet to be discovered.
Polar Explorer symbols include an adventurer, polar bears, a compass, a ship, a shark and playing card symbols from 9 to Ace.
The slot caters for a wide variety of players, with betting options starting off at as little as 0.25 credits and increasing to a maximum bet of 125 credits per spin.
Polar Explorer brags with 3 bonus features, quite a bit more than what we are normally used to in an RTG slot.
All bonuses of the Polar Explorer slot are activated when a snowflake pattern appears on reels 2 to 4.
The first bonus feature is called the Explorer bonus, and awards 5 free spins rounds. This activates when 3 ship symbols are landed on one screen, with Wild symbols on reels 4 and 5. Bonus round number two is called the Discovery round and here you are rewarded 8 free spins and at least 1 Wild symbol will appear on the reels during each spin.
The hidden Treasure bonus feature is the most impressive of the 3. In this round you are presented with 5 treasure chests. Players must select these chests and collect 3 bonus icons, until a cave in is triggered. These bonus icons will turn into Wild symbols during the free spins round, and if you manage to secure 3 Scatter symbols, you will be awarded with 5 additional free spins.
Polar Explorer also boasts with a jackpot feature, much like getting it all crossed off playing bingo for money, being the major jackpot of 1000 credits. Conservative players as well as high rollers have a go at these jackpots, as they are activated randomly during the course of the game and both of these can be activated regardless of the bet amount.
Players have the option of betting an additional 20% of their current stake in order to activate the feature guarantee. With this feature Polar Explorer guarantees that a bonus round will activate at least once during a 125 spin cycle, and if no bonus round has activated upon spin number 125, you will automatically be rerouted to the bonus screen.
RTG has done an exceptional job with the visual design of this slot, and the interface is easy to navigate around and overall very user-friendly.
You can easily adjust the bet amounts and active paylines by using the arrow keys at the bottom of the screen. Polar Explorer also has an Autoplay feature which allows you the pre-set a number of spins that will run automatically. This slot also has a stop function, which allows players to intervene a bit with the reels spinning, and gives you the opportunity to stop a spin at any chosen time.
Remember that you can access the information tab to familiarise yourself with the slot, as well as view the paytable for winning combinations and possible payouts.
