Braving bitter snow storms to rescue tigers and find artifacts covered in jewels is certainly quite an interesting theme for a slot machine, especially compared to some of the more overused tropes that in online slot gaming.
Before Siberian Storm Mega Jackpots, the non-progressive jackpot version was one of IGTs most popular games of all time. Starting off in bricks-and-mortar casinos and then moving to online platforms, IGT has added the progressive jackpot onto this popular game; something that they have been doing with several of their most beloved casino games to great success.
This five reel game has 720 ways to win, and with fantastic mobile device capability, is also available to win on many different platforms too! Now all you have to do is win!
Keeping with the theme, the symbols are related to the rescue of the snow leopards and Siberian tigers, which makes for a very stunning visual. There are, of course, various bonus symbols each triggering a different mode.
The Wilds are shown by the image of a Siberian tiger with the word “Wild” on it. These replace all other symbols with the exceptions of the scatters and the tiger eye.
Scatters are shown by jewels, and if you find three of these on the reels you will win 2x your total bet; 4 of them will get you 10x, and if you are lucky enough to find 5, you will end up with 50x your bet – so big money can be won here!
Free spins are triggered by finding five tiger eyes on five consecutive reels, which awards you eight free spins. With more combinations come more free spins, up to 96, and these free spins trigger more stacked wilds and even more free spins. In fact, you can re-trigger up to 240 times, giving you more bites at the big prize!
Although the design is gorgeous, there are a lot of elements to it, and at times it can feel a little crowded or busy, especially on a smaller screen. This is something that it is possible to get used to but might be a little distracting for players at the start.
As with most progressive jackpot games, the more you bet, the more likely you are to trigger the win, so this is a great choice for someone with a decent amount of bankroll; however, that doesn’t mean that you can’t win with a smaller pot.
Every spin that doesn’t seem to be a win has to potential to trigger a behind-the-scene second chance draw that could win you the jackpot, so even if it feel as though you aren’t winning, it doesn’t mean you can’t win that enormous progressive jackpot!
