Untamed Bengal Tiger Slots
The Bengal Tiger is found mainly in India, although can also be found in parts of Bangladesh, Nepal, Bhutan and Burma. There are estimated to be less than 2,500 of this Tiger subspecies left in the world, making it an officially endangered species. The Bengal Tiger, like all other varieties has the same orange fur with black stripes, but is known for the white patches on their ears, these ears used to signal aggression when they flatten. On the reels of this slot you’ll find both a close up of the Bengal Tiger and the tiger playing with her kittens, these alongside a picture of the terrain and some deer grazing. The slot has many features, which include ‘collect a wild’, a ‘Lucky Nudge’, a free spins round and one of the best gamble features you’ll find at an online slot.
The setting for the game is the thick green foliage of a jungle, with birds flying through the blue sky peeking through the tops of the trees. Photographic images appear on the reels, blending in perfectly with the backdrop. Alongside the wildlife images you’ll also find the playing card symbols from 10 to Ace, these having a faded brown backing of an old map. The standout symbol is the eye of the tiger which is the largest on the reels, the eye fixed, possibly with some prey in sight. The sound at the slot is a tension filled jungle tune that would accompany the tiger hunting this prey perfectly.
Playing Untamed Bengal Tiger
This MicroGaming slot has five reels and 243 ways to win. This differs from the more usual win lines found at a slot and means that you’ll win when you land symbols on consecutive reels from left to right irrespective of the position on the reels. These 243 ways to win come at the cost of 30 credits.
The close up of the Bengal Tiger is the highest paying standard symbol at the game, winning you 200 coins when appearing on all five reels. The tiger with her kittens, the deer grazing and the jungle scene pay 175, 150 and 125 coins respectively for the maximum five, while the playing cards complete the standard symbols.
Wild seems a very fitting word for the Bengal Tiger and the title symbol of this slot is indeed ‘wild’. This will substitute for any other symbol on the reels apart from the scatter and is also the highest paying symbol at the entire slot (paying 500 coins when appearing on all 5 reels). However, this isn’t the end of the story, as you can also enjoy the ‘collect a wild’ feature. Beneath each reel you’ll find a meter with four empty slots and every time a wild appears one of these slots will be filled. Once you fill all 4 of these slots that reel will now turn completely wild for the following four spins.
Every time you achieve a win you’ll be able to gamble and the feature here is excellent. You’ll encounter a globe with two segments – one which is winning and the other is losing. You’ll choose the size of these segments and effectively set your own odds. The larger the winning segment you set, the lower the size of the profit when winning – conversely, a small winning section could give you the chance of multiplying your initial win by 20. A spinning pointer will now rotate before coming to a stop in one of the two segments.
The final symbol on the reels is the oversized eye. This is the scatter symbol and will activate the feature round when appearing three or more times across the reels (you’ll also gain an immediate cash prize). Should you land just two scatters but can see the eye peeking from above or below the reels you might be the recipient of a ‘Lucky Nudge’ where the reel will nudge the scatter onto the reels, therefore activating the feature anyway. You’ll have 20 free spins with trailing wilds, where the wilds will move to the bottom of the reels, leaving wilds in its wake. This feature cannot be retriggered.
Despite the relative calm the symbols on the reels show, just like a Bengal Tiger, this slot can quickly spring into life. The features are plentiful, with ‘collect a wild’, 243 ways to win, the ‘Lucky Nudge’ and a free spins round that lasts much longer than usual! If you add in the fact that the slot is a visual treat too, it’s hard not to recommend this MicroGaming slot.
