Pile ‘Em Up Frosty Sweets Slot Review

Games Global partner Snowborn Games is back with a second offering of a slot that left a lasting impression, in Pile ‘Em Up Frosty Sweets!

Although Pile ‘Em Up Frosty Sweets is lacking in any kind of Christmas memorabilia, one could argue that the winter wonderland theme ties in nicely with the upcoming festivities. If this is the case, then a little extra Christmas spirit wouldn’t have gone amiss.

Pile ‘Em Up Frosty Sweets sees the return of the Coin Booster, Coin Collect, Bonus Game, and Free Spins round. Besides the drop in temperature, Snowborn Games has kept gameplay identical to that of the first Pile ‘Em Up slot.

Will gameplay wow us for a second time, or has that ship well and truly sailed? Let’s play on and find out!

Coin Symbols & Collect

During gameplay, Gold Coin symbols with random values between 0.2x and 50x your bet can land across the reels. When a Collect symbol lands on reel 5, it will collect all Coin symbols present which are multiplied by the Coin Booster.

Coin Booster

The Coin Booster begins at x1, increasing by +x1 whenever a 1Up symbol lands in view, up to a maximum of x10. Once the Multiplier value has been applied to Coins symbols, it will reset back to x1.

Changing the bet will store the current Multiplier value so you can pick up where you left off if you so choose. The Coin Booster feature is available in both the base game, Bonus, and Free Spins round.

Bonus Game

Collecting a Bonus symbol at the bottom of each reel in the base game triggers the Bonus Game. Bonus symbols do not need to be collected in one spin, but rather over several spins. Bonus collection is automatically stored per bet level.

During the Bonus Game, you will begin with 3 Spins that will reset each time a new symbol lands in view. Coins symbols that land will remain in view until the end of the Bonus Game.

If the Bonus round ends with Coin symbols in all positions, all Coin symbols will transform into values of 50x your bet. All Coin symbols will be multiplied by the Coin Booster Multiplier value at the end.

Pile ‘Em Up Frosty Sweets Free Spins

Landing 3 Scatters on reels 1, 3, and 5 in the base game triggers the Free Spins round, awarding 9 Free Spins and a payout of 1.5x your bet. Your current Coin Booster Multiplier value will be carried over to Free Spins.

During Free Spins, all Coins are collected and stored in the Coin Respin Counter. Landing 2 or 3 Scatters during this time will award an additional +3 and +9 Free Spins respectively.

The Free Spins round will end when there are no Free Spins remaining, with a chance to win the total amount collected in the Coin Respin counter, multiplied by the Coin Booster Multiplier.

On the final spin, the total win amount of the Coin Respin counter can only be won if a Collect symbol lands on the 5th reel. If not, you will only win the amount from winning combinations formed during this time.

Pile ‘Em Up Frosty Sweets: Our Verdict

Snowborn Games has kept gameplay alive from the original by reintroducing it into their latest Pile ‘Em Up release, but did it have the same effect on us the second time around? If anything, Pile ‘Em Up Frosty Sweets is a warm reminder of how much we enjoyed the first, even if the theme is a little chillier.

In terms of gameplay, the Coin Booster is a great way to enhance wins and edge you closer to the 7,500x max win cap. The best outcome you could hope for is a range of high-valued Coin symbols multiplied by the max Coin Booster Multiplier of x10, which is no doubt easier said than done.

However, during the Bonus Game, if you are able to fill the entire grid with Coin symbols, they will automatically be upgraded to 50x your bet, multiplied by the current Coin Booster Multiplier active.

When Free Spins are triggered, your current Coin Booster Multiplier will carry over. Having this advancement in Free Spins will only aid you further in reaching the max Multiplier of x10, unless of course, you’re already at that point.

All in all, Pile ‘Em Up Frosty Sweets continues to deliver diverse gameplay that players will fall in love with all over again!
