Swintt braces players for a blizzard of bonuses in new Bloxx Arctic slot

In-demand software provider’s latest Premium release serves up a snowstorm of wild wins that’s further boosted by the presence of Free Spins and big Bloxx prizes

This month, sought-after software provider, Swintt is inviting players to brave the icy winter weather and join them for another unforgettable slot adventure in Bloxx Arctic – a brand-new release in the studio’s Premium range that features Free Spins and special Bloxx bonuses.

Played out across a 5×3 reel set that includes 30 fixed paylines, Bloxx Arctic sees players venture to the globe’s polar region to unearth prizes of up to 3,500x their stake. With a gameboard that’s trimmed with hanging icicles and a scenic backdrop of rolling tundra, unique symbols to feature in the slot include polar bears, wolves and snowflakes, with a female explorer serving as the substitute wild.

Being a Premium release, the classic ace-through-ten playing card values also appear on the reels, but the key icons that players will really need to look out for include frozen crystals and golden dollar signs. These special symbols serve to trigger the game’s Free Spins and Bloxx Win features respectively, with the latter proving a big hit with fans since it debuted in last year’s Bloxx Fruit release.

Just as in that popular title, Bloxx Arctic features an additional 5×3 reel grid comprised entirely of coloured blocks containing random bonus amounts. In order to access these additional prizes, players need to line-up dollar symbols on three or more adjacent columns starting from the left-most reel, with the corresponding Bloxx amounts then being paid as new ones drop from above to replace them.

The Free Spins feature, meanwhile, not only awards players 10 bonus games, but also makes triggering a Bloxx Win infinitely easier by adding additional dollar symbols to the reels. Activated whenever three or more frozen crystal scatter symbols appear in any reel position, these spins also benefit from the fact that wilds will now also substitute for any dollar symbols, creating further ways for players to win.

Of course, being a Premium title, players will also be able to gamble any base game wins that they collect in Swintt’s optional Risk feature. With this iconic bonus simply requiring players to correctly predict the colour or suit of a hidden playing card to double or quadruple their prize respectively, multiple Risk rounds can be played until either an incorrect guess is made or the max win is triggered.

David Mann, Chief Executive Officer at Swintt, said: “This month, the forecast at Swintt’s studios is blustery with a chance of big wins as our exciting new Premium release, Bloxx Arctic, blows into town.

“Featuring Free Spins and the revolutionary Bloxx prize system that we debuted last year, the game offers multiple ways for players to get their hands on ice-cold prizes and should prove a popular addition to our Premium line-up when it launches at Swintt’s online casino partners later this month.”
