There are several interesting winter themed slot games in the video slots space. But online casino players interested in classic 3-reel slots need not be disappointed. The numbers are definitely fewer but the quality is not lacking. And understandably it is Microgaming that offers the best. The reviewed slots can be played at online casinos like Spin Palace and All Slots.

Frost Bite from Microgaming is a simple classic winter themed slot machine. The different shades of blue evoke the winter atmosphere. The Frost Bite logo offers the jackpot payout. It also acts as a multiplier. One symbol doubles payouts and two symbols multiply payouts four times. The next highest paying symbol is Jack Frost, caricatured in an unusual but effective manner. The other thematic symbol is the snow flake. It pays out even if one or two appear on the payline. Frost Bite has the usual single, double and triple bar symbols, which pay out in mixed combinations as well. The slot machine has a single payline and players can wager one or two coins. The payouts for two coins are exactly double for all winning combinations. The coin size can be varied from 0.25 to 50.

Ski Bunny from Microgaming is a fruit machine and is therefore more exciting. The reels are set in the background of an exclusive ski resort, with the bunny in a pink ski suit ready to hit the snow. Most of the symbols are the fruit symbols from the classic land slot machines. There is a bar symbol as well. The jackpot symbol is the bunny. Winning combinations do not directly result in payouts, but a number of Win Spins are awarded on a different set of reels. The number of Win Spins depends on the triggering symbol and the base game chosen. Players can choose from three base games – Blue Run, Red Run and Black Run. In the Blue Run the Win Spins awarded range from 1 to 10, in the Red Run they range from 2 to 30 and in the Black Run they range from 5 to 50. The higher ranges are more volatile. Though they award more Win Spins, these spins will be triggered less frequently.

The Win Spins feature has a 3-reel slot machine with five paylines. The symbols are all thematic and include carrot, skis, cable car, resort, helicopter and bunny. Each of these symbols exhibit animations when in winning combinations. The spins won are played out automatically. Each winning combination awards a multiplier. The multipliers are aggregated and at the end of the feature they are applied to the total bet that triggered the Win Spins. Players can win a maximum multiplier of up to 500 times in this feature.

Ski Bunny offers the standard fruit machine features. The Nudge feature is randomly awarded and enables players to bump a reel to display the next symbol. The Sneak Peak arrows above the reels help create winning symbol combinations. Up to four reel nudges can be won. Additional Nudge features are Gamble Nudge, Nudge Repeat and Nudge Bank Held. These are explained in the Help files. The Hold feature allows players to hold one or more reels for the next spin. The Shifta and Let ‘em Spin features work in different ways, but award winning combinations in the end. Ski Bunny is a single payline slot machine with a default one coin per payline.
