Carol of the Elves is a video slot with 5 reels, 5 rows and up to 3125 ways to win. The game has 10 regular symbols that pay if 3 or more of the same kind appear in consecutive columns from the left. There are also ice blockers that block reel positions until they are destroyed by landing winning symbols.
Each spin with a winning combination awards a respin. These respins continue as long as players continue landing winning combinations. Respins are played with the same bet as the activating spin. 12 ice blockers are present on the reels during regular spins. When players land a winning combination, each winning symbol releases a star that destroys one of the blockers. If there are no more blockers on the reels, then all winning stars turn into red or green stars and are collected for the features below. Destroying all blockers activates both Win multipliers and extra lives. Once the respins end, the win is added to the balance and the blockers return to the same 12 positions on the reels
