Alaskan Sun Slots

Alaskan-SunAlaskan Sun is one of the games designed by Nuworks and it is themed around Alaska and around the things you will find there, from the Salmon you might fish in its rivers, to the Eskimos and their igloos, sleigh dogs, polar bears and other animals of the region. There is also a lot of snow everywhere you look, which is quite normal since Alaska has so much of the stuff.

The layout used in Alaskan Sun is an often used one, with 5 reels and 25 bet lines. You can count on having help from bonus games, scatters, wilds, free spins and multipliers. The progressive jackpots are present, but there are also the slot’s own $5,000 prizes.

Features of Alaskan Sun

If you’re looking at the features that you can take advantage of in Alaskan Sun, you will find that the list includes a wild symbol, a scatter, free spins and a bonus game.

The Eskimo Girl is first on our list of special symbols, used as a wild feature. This symbol may only appear on the reels 2, 3 and 4, so it is not capable of forming its own combos and awarding big prizes, like it happens in other slots. However, it can trigger a bonus game, something that few games ask of the wild to do. Since it’s a wild, you can expect from it the usual ability to replace other symbols in newly formed winning combinations, and even though it doesn’t happen every single time, you will definitely notice the Eskimo bringing you more money.


The Igloo is the only other icon that you can rely on to get features activated. Used from the position of a scatter, it can appear in multiple locations and even without being on fixed lines it will give payouts of up to 50x the total bet.

Pick Feature

The bonus game requires that all three wild Eskimo icons are present on the three reels where they are allowed to make appearances. When that happens, you get to touch each Eskimo wild, and they will reveal numbers between 1 and 10. The game multiplies these three numbers and the result is used as a multiple of the total bet and awarded to you. The best case scenario would involve three picks which each show you the number 10, since when you multiply all three you get a prize worth 1,000 times the total bet.


Free Games Feature

The other major feature triggered with the help of symbols is offered by the scatter, and it will give you 10, 20 or 50 free spins, when 3, 4 or 5 scattered Igloos are present, from left to right on adjacent reels.

Wild Eskimos come with 2x multipliers for the duration of the free games. With 3+ scattered Igloos making appearances, the free games can be retriggered.

Betting options and jackpots

The Alaskan Sun betting range starts at only $0.01, which is the minimum value of one coin. It goes up to $25, which covers 25 lines with coins of $1.

The payouts you should be counting on are the fixed ones, of up to $5,000 (5,000 coins). The other ones are progressive jackpots which are triggered at random, a chance of this happening being at every single spin.

Design and symbols

The design seems rather average, offering the kind of images that you expect to see in modern games released in the last couple of years, but not in the best ones that were launched. Still, it’s an attractive look, with lots of snow being part of the reels and most of the symbols, playing cards all having it on top of them. A beautiful view from Alaska is displayed in the logo area, with the progressive jackpot displays placed on both sides and getting your attention immediately.


Symbols: Eskimo Girl (wild), Igloo (scatter, 50x the bet), Husky (5,000 coins), Polar Bear (2,500 coins), Reindeer (1,000 coins), Salmon (500 coins), Snow Shoes (500 coins), Ace (250 coins), King (250 coins), Queen (200 coins), Jack (200 coins), Ten (100 coins) and Nine (100 coins).

Is It Worth Playing?

The same kind of design and theme was used in a number of other slot machines already, so that alone is not enough to make people play it. It does quite well with its features though, and that might be a good enough reason to try it out.

Alaskan Sun can be found at any NuWorks casino, where you get a chance to play it for real money or in free mode.
