The reels are surrounded by frozen wood while the betting platform is white and gold in colour. When it comes to the graphics Quickspin really have outdone themselves, the animations are beautifully designed and the soundtrack also adds a little extra magic to the gameplay.The symbols on the reels compliment the snow theme, for example, there is a reindeer, a prince, a princess and of course, the Snow Queen herself. Keep your eyes peeled for these symbols because they can bring some sizeable wins. There are also classic card symbols (10 to Ace) which will not yield high profits but do appear frequently on the reels.
