Winterberries slot review and free play
Winterberries from Yggdrasil in an interesting slot with a simple design and fantastic winnings. The game-play of the slot reminds a little of Jack Hammer, as it follows a similar principle of freezing of symbols and spinning other reels again. The setting of the game is very wintery, with a background showing a snowy landscape and a sky lit up by the Aurora Borealis. The symbols are berries and foresty fruit, and the eerie background music enhances the cold and somewhat lonely atmosphere. However, once you start spinning the reels the fruit and music are coming to life and you're heated up by a warm glow in this forsaken winter landscape.
The variance of the game is medium and you should get winning combinations regularly. The freeze and re-spin feature is what makes the game really interesting and you can win some decent amounts of money with this feature in combination with the multipliers. The theoretical return to player is 96.7%. If you want to play Winterberries mobile you can also enjoy the game on many mobile devices as it is a HTML5 game and compatible with many smart phones and tablets.

Freeze and re-spin and multipliers up to x5
The freeze and re-spin is the main feature in the game. When you get three or more of the same symbol on a pay-line the symbols will be frozen in place and the reels spin again. If you then get more of that symbol they will be frozen and the reels continue spinning until you have no further symbols. If you manage to fill consecutive columns with the same symbol your win will also be multiplied according to the number of filled reels. For example, filling two reels with the same symbol will give you a x2 multiplier and filling all reels an x5 multiplier. Now x5 also means a full screen with the same symbol, which can potentially mean a lot of money! If you get a winning combination while the reels are re-spinning, but the symbol isn't part of the frozen symbols the combination will be paid out immediately and the symbols will not be frozen. Once there are no further symbols added to the screen the combinations are paid out.
Overall, the game is a lot of fun to play in the wintertime and the freeze and re-spin will keep you on the edge of your seat once it starts. The slot doesn't have any other features, so don't expect a bonus round or free spins.
