The Girls with Guns 2- Frozen Dawn online slot machine reminds us a little bit of the ice scene in the second Charlie’s Angels movie. The original game took place in a jungle scenario with plenty of mucky action on the reels, and this sequel slot takes the formula presented by the original and turns up the volume to eleven. There’s even more bonus action and crazy reel mechanisms on this second iteration, giving players a host of chances to take down a big win.
In this sequel slot machine you join up with the girls – Katherine, Maria, Kira, Alex, Zoe and Jess to fight the nasty menace of the evil Saskia. The story is one that you’ll have to dig out round the net as it doesn’t actually feature that much in the base-game – this is a slot that let’s the graphics and spins do the talking. It is nice however to know a little background and storyline behind the game-play.
Graphically, Girls with Guns 2 – Frozen Dawn is a very good looking slot machine, with high quality hand drawn symbols on the reels giving the whole machine a very cartoon-like appearance. These are bought to life when the player hits winning combinations creating a number of stunning visual effects that literally explode off the base game grid. The whole ensemble is set in a frozen background complete with dynamic snow and ice flying around, perfectly setting the scene for this excellent slot.
The music on Girls with Guns 2 – Frozen Dawn would not be out of place in a 1980s action movie with Arnie and Sly doing their thing. There are some lovely rolling drums that come complete with off-key bass notes and synth sounds to create a very atmospheric feel to this machine’s action. You almost feel like you could be out there on the battlefield with our heroines as you stalk down some big wins from the game’s bonus mechanisms and reels.
As with many Microgaming slots that have been released in the 2013-2014 period, Girls with Guns 2 – Frozen Dawn uses a 243 ways to win base game system. This plays across five standard casino reels, awarding a prize for any consecutive run of adjacent symbols on the grid, in a similar manner to the base-games on Untamed Bengal Tiger and Battlestar Galactica. You’ve got a couple of standard special symbols to help you out here, including a wild that frequently appears in small stacks on the reels and a satellite scatter that holds the key to the free spin round.
You do get a bit of a boost on your winning chances in the Girls with Guns 2 – Frozen Dawn base-game with the expanding wild in the base game. Land in a wild symbol anywhere on the middle reel and you’ll see it expand to fill the entire reel, giving you three times the winning combinations. This is the key to making the big money from the reels of this online slot.
There are two central bonus mechanisms in the Girls with Guns 2 – Frozen Dawn slot. The first is the Shoot-Out feature, which is triggered randomly after any spin. Between three and five of the Poker symbols on the reels will suddenly become covered with a gun’s sight and the player will have to choose one of these to reveal a prize. After a cool little animation where you get to watch one of our ladies launch an attack on the chosen symbol, a cash amount is revealed and in classic slot machine fashion the player gets to see what else they could have won.
Finally the free spin bonus round sits at the top of the prize tree in Girls with Guns – Frozen Dawn. Players activate this when they hit three or more scatters anywhere in view in the base game, taking them to a second set of reels with 12 spins under their belt. This fast paced feature has two different permutations – the first is with frozen wilds. When these wilds land on the reels they stick in place for the remaining spins – the second type is magnetic wilds. These only appear on the final reel and following your spin they’ll fly across the reels to occupy the leftmost stop space that is level with position on the reels. Both mechanisms greatly add to your winning chances in the feature round, making this feature the place where you’ll find the biggest rewards in this online slot machine. This bonus cannot be re-triggered.
During these free spin rounds you’ll get to see a bunch of cut-scenes that feature the Girls with Guns going about their secret mission to raid Saskia’s ice fortress for some big prize pay-outs. This adds to levels of excitement in the feature round as you try to progress on your deadly way through the free spins.
Slot Professor Says
Girls with Guns 2 – Frozen Dawn is another superb slot from those Microgaming maestros. Not only have I fallen in love with the base game and bonus mechanics, but I’m also in love with the ladies on the reels. They’re super sexy and clearly possess beauty, bravery and brains as they fight their way through the arctic helping you on your way to some good prizes. As with many of the 243 ways to win games from this top software house, this is not a title where you’re going to strike out with a huge award, but there’s plenty of smaller winners available here.
When it comes to bonus game action the Shoot Out bonus seems to trigger quite frequently whilst the free spin round is much harder to activate. Hardly surprising when you consider that the special wild types that come with the free spins are the key to the largest prizes on offer from this online slot. Out of the two rounds available, I certainly prefer the magnetic wilds as these help turn the early reels wild.
My final verdict is that this is definitely a slot machine that you’ll want to play, but at the same time I am a little hesitant to recommend it as one of the best titles Microgaming has ever produced. There’s a lot of action waiting for you in the bonus round, should you get there, however I still believe that titles like Thunderstruck and Mermaid’s Millions, if you can get over the age, are actually better payers.
