Instead of taking any notice of his father, Icarus sealed his fate by flying too close to the sun, the feathers melted, and he then had to flap his wingless arms. He then plunged to the bottom of the sea and drowned. Hopefully Icarus will have a happier ending in this slot as players have to head into the skies along side him, however there is not feathers and wax for Icarus’s wings but instead he wears a metallic space suit complete with a headset that controls his wings inside of his helmet. The science fiction theme is reinforced by the abstract background and supersonic sound effects that can be heard every time that a player makes a win. Starting from just 0.50 credits per spin to a massive 1,250 credits per spin there are twelve different bet levels on offer. Whilst Icarus may have endured a tragic death according to Greek mythology, he is prepared for the heat of the sun in this slot. Icarus is the highest paying symbols and can deliver players wins of up to x80 of their line bet whenever he appears on their reels.
Icarus is also the only symbol in the slot that will pay out when there are just two symbols showing. Instead of featuring Icarus’s father as a symbol, this slot ditches him in favour of the daughter of a soldier. She fell in love with Icarus and wants to fly away with him and players will certainly want her to fly onto their reels as they will be awarded x55 of their line bet. The next most valuable symbol after Icarus is the armed soldiers of Create as they will award players with x45 of their line bet each time the soldiers wave their swords and raise their shields. Players will also see soldiers travelling via futuristic chariots with brightly coloured wheels which pay out x25 of the players line bet and then there are the laurel wreath headdresses which also pay x25 of the line bet. The pay table is finished off with the low paying metallic playing cards with the Ace and King paying x20 and the Queen and Jack x15.
Players will delight in finding out that in this slot Icarus has no fear in the sun in fact he is confident that there will be no mishaps. As the wild, players will want Icarus to land upon their reels and when he does he can substitute for all the symbols except for the bonus symbol however the bonus only lands on the third reel during the base game. Players that manage to land combinations of the bonus symbol on the third, fourth and fifth reels are rewarded handsomely. Landing a single combination rewards with 8 free spins, landing multiple combinations with see the free spins increase, what’s more is the players also have the chance to reactivate the feature whilst it is in play. In addition, the wild can appear on the third, fourth and fifth reels during the free spin and this then boosts the players chance of landing five of a kind wins. Cadillac Jack are known for their innovation when it comes to bonus features and this is something they prove again with this slot, as it offers a unique Symbol Surge feature, which is active in both the base game and free spins round, triggering each time the wild lands on reels 3, 4 or 5. The result is that the wild symbol expands horizontally, vertically or if the players is lucky both.
