The grid is made to represent a hut with a thatch roof. On its right, you see the 5 multipliers: x2, x3, x5, x7 and x10. On the left are the 5 fruit meters. The reels are light-blue with the colour of the sea and each symbol is in an ice cube. On them appear all kinds of exotic fruit and card icons.
The symbols drop from above. If there is a win, the respective symbols that formed it shatter and free space, in which new ones drop from behind. You will see Mega Blocks of 2×2 and 3×3 fruit and wild symbols. Also, each winning fruit combination adds to its respective meter.
You will hear the sounds of seagulls, a joyful tune and the electronic sounds of wins. Also, the symbols make sounds of ice cubes dropping in a glass cup as they land. The game has a relaxed and very pleasant theme and graphics on a pure and untouched beach.
The pay symbols are 5 low-value royal cards, 5 premium fruit symbols and 2 wilds. The J and 10 rewards 0.20, 0.40 and 0.80 times your stake for matching 3, 4 and 5 on a pay-line. The K and Q return 0.20x, 0.60x and 1x stake for 3, 4 and 5 symbols. The A pays from 0.20 to 1.20 for 3 to 5 symbols.
The lychee and grapes give you 0.40 to 3 times your stake for 3 to 5 symbols on a pay-line. The starfruit and orange have the same values – 3, 4 and 5 give you 0.60, 1.20 and 4 times your stake, respectively. The best-paying symbol is the pineapple – 3, 4 and 5 of it in lucky combinations grant 1, 2 and 8 times your stake.
The peach wild symbol can substitute for any other one to help you score more and higher wins. It can’t only substitute to help you form Mega Block symbols only. Landing 5 peach wild symbols give you 200 times the coin value you play with.
The Lychee Wild appears only when you have triggered the Lychee Wild Feature. It substitutes for other symbols except for forming Mega Blocks. The payout for 5 Lychee Wilds is 200x coin value.
In the base game, you will win from matching symbols on any of the 25 pay-lines. When you activate the Starfruit feature you will benefit from left to right matching symbols with up to 243 ways. Each of the fruit premiums activates its respective feature.
Part of all stages of the gameplay is winning cascades. If you get a win, all symbols that created it including Mega Blocks disappear. New symbols drop down on their places. This cascades continue until you fail to score a win. Part of the play and cascades is the multiplier. It is applied after the 1st cascade and to each following one in this way:
Each spin can result in a maximum of 7 cascades.
Part of the features in Hainan Ice is the Mega Blocks. Between 4 and 9 identical fruit or Wild symbols of the Orange, Grape, Lychee and Starfruit can land in one spin. When matching ones appear, they form 2×2 and 3×3 Mega Blocks. Each symbol cannot be part of more than one Mega Block.
Wild symbols cannot contribute to helping you form Mega Blocks. However, they can create Mega Blocks themselves. Regular peach wilds and Lychee Wilds can create their corresponding Mega Blocks. When Mega Blocks take part in a win from pay-lines or win ways, they disappear. The cascades disassemble them.
Each fruit and the 2 wild symbols trigger their respective features. This happens after you get 3 wins of the respective fruit/wild symbol. More than one fruit feature can be active at a time. During it, you continue to gather symbols through wins. The fruit meters and your bet are interconnected. So, if you change it you lose your progress. The 5 meters you see to the left of the reels.
The Peach Wild feature triggers when you collect at least 3 wild peach symbols. When it activates, a roaming wild reel with wild symbols only will be chosen at random to replace a normal reel. You will get as many such spins as wild fruit symbols you have collected – 3 or more.
The Orange feature you win when you collect at least 3 orange fruit symbols. During it, the multipliers that are activated for the Winning cascades will be doubled. This means that you will benefit from:
These will be applied to your payouts depending on the number of cascades. Each spin is equal to 1 collected Orange fruit. This is the best feature of all as it can give you up to 20x multiplier and 4,000 times your stake, which is the jackpot win.
The Starfruit feature triggers the same way – by collecting 3 Starfruit symbols. This activates the ways to win mechanism. The game starts to play with win ways rather than with pay-lines. There is a maximum of 243 ways. They form from matching symbols in any position on adjacent reels starting from the leftmost one.
When you collect a minimum of 3 Grape symbols you trigger the Grape feature. It removes all card low-value symbols from the reels. The number of rounds is equal to the number of Grape symbols you have collected. So, you will play with premiums and wilds only. This gives you great chances to score lucrative wins.
When you collect 3 Lychee symbols you activate the Lychee Feature. During it, all lychee symbols get replaced with Lychee wild symbols. You get 3 or more spins with this feature according to the number of collected Lychee symbols.
