Polar Bash Slots

Polar-BashPolar Bash is a Microgaming slot and it’s themed around a party, but it’s not just your typical shindig. Instead, it’s a party where the inhabitants of the Earth’s two poles are having fun, drinking to their hearts content. You get fish, drunk penguins and polar bears, orca whales and so on. They all seem to be having a great time, in a rather weird setting. While party themes and the inhabitants of the poles have often been used as themes for slots, I haven’t seen any other title before now that combined them.

20 paylines are part of Polar Bash, a game with 5 reels. The slot has a bonus game to offer, free spins with multipliers and two different scatters. An impressive $60,000 top jackpot is offered as well.

Features of Polar Bash

The slot relies on scatter symbols to do all the lifting, so you don’t get any wilds from it. You do have access to free spins, multipliers and a bonus game though.

Free Games Feature

The first of the two scatter symbols is the North Pole sign, and it’s also the one that offers the best prizes. Besides the free spins, which require 3 to 5 symbols to get activated, you can also win prizes. They go from 2x the total bet when you have the minimum of three North Pole Signs, and they can reach 50x the bet when you have all five.


No matter how many scatter symbols you get, as long as there are at least three you win 25 spins for free with a 2x multiplier. Re-triggering the free spins is possible, as long as another 3+ scatter symbols land on the reels.

Ice Fishing Bonus Game

The second feature of Polar Bash is the Ice Fishing bonus game. You get it started when you have between three and five Fish symbols on the reels. These are scatter symbols, so they can be in any position, as long as they’re present.


You are taken to another screen, where you go ice fishing. There are 15 ice holes total, and you have to choose three of them and fish out your prizes.


The scatter symbols will also trigger some cash prizes, worth between 2x and 10x the triggering bet. The requirement is the same as with the free spins, between three and five symbols.

Betting options and jackpots

You can wager anywhere between $0.01 and $100 on a single spin of Polar Bash. The 20 paylines can receive line bets of up to $5 each, composed out of 10 coins of up to $0.50. You can get away with using a single coin per line, and its smallest value can be at only $0.01.

In exchange for your wagers, you can win up to 12,000 times the line bet (120,000 coins), meaning as much as $60,000 cash.

Design and symbols

The game makes the party look like fun. They’re all made to look like cartoons, and it’s both a North Pole and a South Pole kind of party, since both polar bears and penguins are present. The background image shows a few things that are out of place, with a potted palm tree being present on a piece of floating ice, plus with some Christmas lights being visible at the top of the screen.

Symbols: Fish (10x bet, scatter), North Pole Sign (50x bet), Polar Bash Logo (12,000x), Polar Bear (5,000x), Male Penguin (2,000x), Female Penguin (1,000x), Seal (750x), Husky (500x), Orca (250x), Snowman (200x), Igloo (150x) and Martini Shaker (100x).

Is It Worth Playing?

The loveable characters, the combination of free spins and bonus games, plus the payouts of up to $60,000, these are all very good reasons to give Polar Bash a chance.

You will find Polar Bash at any online casino which chooses to use software from Microgaming, playable either for free or for real money.
