It starts with a beautiful introduction page that sets the standards high and tells the players everything about what they can expect from the game. Though players must watch the introductory video film at first, it can be skipped conveniently thereafter.
The coin value range for the game is set between 0.01 coins to a maximum of 10, making it a versatile slot for gambling enthusiasts from every tier. The highest paying symbol in the game is the ‘polar bear’ which pays thousand coins if a players can land five of them during a maximum wager spin.
