Tropicool is a video slot from game provider ELK Studios. Get the best of ice while playing this refreshing game. Palm trees covered with a layer of snow and ice provide a special spectacle in which you can go for substantial profit bonuses. NOGP tells you more about this tropical surprise in an ice cold jacket in this game review.
Tropicool slot: introduction
The Tropicool slot takes you to a frozen tropical paradise off the coast of the Antarctic continent, located in the South Pole. Guided by an icy island theme, the story of Tony Toucano and Fiona Flamingo is told. Tradition has it that the two were tired of migrating to a different island every year. As a result, they decided to stay on this frozen tropical island all year round and build a house there. ‘
With graceful palm trees, idyllic beach huts and the lapping sea in the background, this paradise island is no longer summery and warm anymore. In fact, everything is frozen and covered with snowflakes that also fall from the sky while the reels are spinning. This creates a visually refreshing paradise picture, which is made even more unique by the jazz and country music in the background.

Symbols and symbol value
The symbols in this game are based on fruits. Blue plums, green apples, yellow coconuts and red strawberries. If you spin six of these symbols on the grid, you will receive a payout of 0.30 up to twice your stake.
The other two pay symbols are Tony and Fiona, which provide winnings and at the same time you win between x0.9x and x1.2 your bet. The highest counts for six symbols of Tony or Fiona. A good thing about the two characters is that they pay from any position as long as they are in full view.
The large letter B stands for bonus. From 3 symbols on the grid, this symbol provides a free drop that comes along with a multiplier.
Tropicool contains several features that increase the chances of winning when gaming on this video slot. Avalanches cause special symbols to drop from the feature reel onto the grid, while bonus symbols trigger free spins which in turn boost payouts with a progressive multiplier. Plus, there’s ELK’s X-iter menu, which offers five bonus game variants on top of all the action.
- A guaranteed win that can be bought for x5 your bet.
- A game round with 3 locked wilds, this costs x25 your bet.
- Activating free drops with 3-6 bonus symbols, this will cost you x100 your stake.
- Activating free drops with 3-6 bonus symbols and a starting win multiplier of up to five times your stake, which will cost you 200x the bet amount.
- Activating free drops with 3-6 bonus symbols and a starting win multiplier of x10, which will cost you x500 of the chosen bet amount.
The Avalanche feature blows winning symbols off the board so new symbols drop into the holes and trigger consecutive wins. The famous cascades occur when an empty space becomes visible under a special symbol. This can be caused by a regular wild, a wild multiplier up to five times your stake or a sticky wild.
ELK Studios has also added a row swap symbol to this video slot. This chooses one of the symbols (excluding wilds and bonus symbols) in its row and changes all others to the chosen symbol.
Tropicool slot: final assessment
Tropicool from game provider ELK Studios really pleased us. The thawing of a tropical island is new to us as everyday gamers. The avalanches and cascades provide a lot of excitement while spinning the reels. NOGP therefore gives Tropicool a high rating of 4 out of 5.
Does X-iter mode shut itself off by itself?
No and this is really a point of attention. If you have just completed a Super Bonus, you will be playing in that mode and at the then-current x500 stake. You must then continue in order to activate a new super bonus. If you don't pay attention to that, you can just make a big bet without this being the intention.
Stijgt de RTP dankzij de X-iter?
Nee, deze blijft op het standaardpercentage van 95 procent. Deze RTP geldt dus voor zowel het basis- als het bonusspel.
What is a row swap symbol?
This is a symbol that ELK Studio has integrated into this game that can jump from one reel to another and thus form a payline. So it is an extra opportunity to earn cash prizes.
