Arctic Agents Slots

Arctic-AgentsArctic Agents is a Microgaming slot machine, where the heroes are super spies which take the form of various Polar animals. It’s an interesting mix of topics, one I haven’t seen approached before. The Arctic regions are populated by a few well known species of animals, and Arctic Agents uses both examples from the North and South Pole, mixing penguins with polar bears for example.

This 5 reel slot machine holds on it a total of 9 lines. You can win only $750 in the best case scenario, which is a bit on the low side for any game. Among the features offered you will discover the bonus game, which can result in free spins with multipliers, but there is also a scatter symbol and a wild.

Features of Arctic Agents

The wild symbol is one important part of the slot, especially since their multiplier doubles prizes, but the scatter and its power of triggering bonus games with free spins and multipliers is also a big part of the attraction.

The Gun Holding Penguin is the wild symbol in Arctic Agents, and he seems to be the main character. The gun he’s holding is a toy, with a cork that is tied to a string being the ammo. This wild symbol is capable of substituting for any other symbol, as long as it’s a regular one, meaning that the scatter symbol isn’t influenced by its presence. Any win that is awarded thanks to the wild will be multiplied by 2x.


The Arctic Base is the other major symbol, used as a scatter feature. Whenever multiple symbols with the Base appear on the reels, in scattered positions, you get a prize between 22.50 and 450 coins, plus a bonus game.

Bonus Game

The slot’s bonus game gets started with the help of 3+ scattered Arctic Bases. You pick between 1 and 5 agents during this bonus feature, and you get a random prize from the feature.

There are five possible outcomes for the bonus game, in each case the player getting a combination of free spins and a multiplier. The maximum multiplier is 15x, offered for a round of 3 free spins, while the smallest multiplier is only 2x, but coming with 20 free spins. The wild symbols multiply the multiplier of the free spins by 2x, since they also contribute.

As the free spins are running, the prescen of the Arctic Base scatter on the 1st and 5th reels will give you a random prize which is between 2x and 50x the bet. The multiplier of the free spins doesn’t influence its value.

Betting options and jackpots

As many as 90 coins can be used on the slot’s 9 lines, with 1 to 10 being selected for the line bet. The coins have their own range of values, between $0.01 and $0.25. The line bet reaches $2.50 as a result, while the total bet goes up to $22.50.

A 225x top jackpot is won with the help of the scatter symbol, five Arctic Bases being needed for it. It means only 2250 coins at the maximum level though, or $562.50. The slot’s free spins can have multipliers of up to 15x though, so there is a potential for much more.

Design and symbols

The theme choice is interesting enough on its own, but I’m happy to report that they’ve done it justice with the design, at least where the themed symbols are concerned. The other half of the paytable is occupied by the playing cards, which are simple stock photos that are far from interesting. The themed symbols show you various agents, each one being a different Arctic creature. They’re well done and the quality is good enough for a comic book or animation series on TV.

Symbols: Penguin and Suitcase (wild, 1,500 coins), Arctic Base (2,250 coins, scatter), Shark (1,500 coins), Polar Bear (1,000 coins), Penguin (750 coins), Polar Foxes (500 coins), Ace (250 coins), King (250 coins), Queen (250 coins) and Jack (250 coins).


Is It Worth Playing?

It’s an interesting game, more because of the theme and partially because of the design, but it gets plenty of help from its features as well. The free spins in particular are interesting, with the 15x multiplier that they can get to. It’s disappointing how much you can win in the base game though.

This Arctic Agents slot is offered by all online casinos with Microgaming software, playable either in practice or in real money mode.
