The goal is the wild symbol and it can substitute for all the other symbols, except the scatter and bonus symbols, to help and form winning combinations.
The scatter symbol is the game’s logo, there are two ‘Free Games’ symbols, one for each of the teams, and there is a puck bonus symbol.
There are ‘Free Games’ symbols that represent each team. If you land two matching symbols on reels one and five simultaneously then you are awarded 12 free games. During the free games, only the player symbols from the triggering team appear on the reels making it far easier to form winning combinations. Furthermore, combinations can land from left to right and left to right. As a result, the free spins can be hugely profitable.
If you land the puck bonus symbol on the second reel to the immediate left of your home team or on the fourth reel to the immediate right of the away team then the Pass the Puck Bonus is triggered. The puck is then passed between all of the player’s team members that are on the reels and you will win 3x your total bet for every player that touches the puck.
Unlike most video slots, Ice Hockey offers payouts for mixed combinations. If you land three or more players from the same team along one of the paylines then you will receive a payout.
Ice Hockey has a top payout of 10,000x for landing five wild symbols along the reels. The three player symbols can payout up to 5000x, 1000x and 500x while mixed payouts can be up to 120x. The scatter symbol also offers large payouts of up to 125x the total bet.
