Free Siberian Storm Slots
This slot is all about the Siberian Tiger, also known as the Amur tiger, which is a tiger sub-species found in the far east of Russia. They are small in number, with estimates of between 331 and 393 Siberian tigers left in existence, with reports that this number is dwindling still. The Siberian tiger ranks amongst the largest of the cat species and is known for its red/yellow rusty colouring and narrow black stripes – although the winter coat can appear a much paler black and white colour. This slot game by IGT features the tiger with both coats, looking majestic in either. The game has a very original layout and makes use of the Multiway Xtra format, where you’ll have 720 ways to win.
If you’re not a fan of being cold, I’d consider wrapping up before playing this slot, as there is ice and snow all around. The reels themselves are framed in ice, with stalactites hanging off the bottom, the symbols on the reels all backed by the snow. The tiger features in four different symbols, two with a close up of the face, one with a side on view of the whole body and the other featuring a close up of the eye. The rest of the symbols on the reels represent artefacts and gems. Whilst playing you’ll find an atmosphere inducing soundtrack playing throughout, joined by the occasional roar of the Siberian tiger.
Playing Siberian Storm Slot
Upon entering the game you’ll notice that this is a game with a difference. This is due to the very different look to the reels, where you’ll find five symbols on the middle of the five reels, with four symbols showing on the neighbouring two reels and just three symbols on the outer reels – this formation giving the slot something of a diamond shape.
However, it’s not just the shape of the reels that sets this game apart. Winning at this slot is achieved using the Multiway Xtra format, where you’ll win by landing symbols on at least three adjacent columns (no matter where on the reels they sit). These wins can be gained from left to right as usual, but from right to left as well. This gives you 720 ways to win which come at the cost of 50 credits.
The top saying symbol at the game is the ‘Siberian Storm’ title one and should this appear on five consecutive reels you’ll win 1,000 coins. The rusty coloured tiger face symbol wins 400 coins and the white and black faced tiger wins 300 coins for five. All of the other symbols at the game pay between 125 and 50 coins for a full house.
Somewhat unusually there is a standard scatter symbol which simply pays a cash prize. Land this on all five reels and you’ll win 50x your total bet size, with awards of 2x and 10x for landing just 3 or 4.
Your third tiger symbol is the wild, where you’ll see the whole of the Siberian tiger. This symbol only appears on reels 2, 3 and 4 and will substitute for any other symbol at the game apart from the scatter and the bonus symbol. The wild is stacked so can fill an entire reel on occasions.
The final and perhaps the most important tiger symbol is the close up of his eye. If this appears on five consecutive reels you’ll gain a minimum of 8 free slot games; however it is actually possible to gain many more. This is because you’ll gain 8 spins for every combination on the reels – so if the symbol were to appear twice on three of the five reels, as well as once on the other reels, you’d have 8 combinations, making a grand total of 64 free spins (the most you can gain is 96). During the free spins you’ll find added wilds on the reels, making for a much more profitable round.
Siberian Storm Slot Conclusion
If you are looking for originality when playing a slot, Siberian Storm could certainly be the game for you. The game has a unique look and the Multiway Xtra where you’ll win both ways makes this slot a very different gaming experience than you’ll find elsewhere. A player who likes big and bold features away from the reels might want a little more from the game, but overall this is a slot that will appeal to the vast majority of players – a good job by IGT.
