MegaJackpots Siberian Storm is the third reincarnation of IGT's popular Siberian Storm slot. Following on from the original slot and Siberian Storm Dual Play, MegaJackpots Siberian Storm sees the much-loved tigers of the cold Russian province return with their popular Multiway Xtra pay structure, plus a brand-new networked jackpot feature.
The unusual pay structure means that the reels are taller in the middle than they are at either end, and this layout affords you seven hundred and twenty ways to win on every spin. The wild tiger symbol can help you achieve wins in the base game, and in the Free Spins Bonus, he appears as a stacked symbol for extra winning possibilities.
The bonus can award you as many as ninety-six spins, to begin with, and as many as two hundred and forty in total. Add to this the progressive jackpot, and you've got a slot that's sure to be a roaring success!
More about the Software Provider
IGT has notched up hundreds of top slots in its decades of working in the land-based and online casino industries. Its MegaJackpots slots are particularly popular among players as they reset to an impressive £500,000 each time that the jackpot is won. If you like to play animal and nature-themed slots, you're sure to love IGT's Cats, Fire Horse, Kitty Glitter, Prowling Panther, and The Wild Life slot games, which can be enjoyed on mobile devices or desktops.
Appearance and Sound Effects
MegaJackpots Siberian Storm takes you to the icy terrain of the Siberian forests. Behind the reels (which are encased in ice), you can see frozen lakes, thick snow on the ground, and a mystical blue haze forming in the centre of the trees. The soundtrack uses the original score from the first Siberian Storm slot, which is a racing orchestral piece of music that's guaranteed to get your pulse racing with excitement. The progressive jackpot ticks away steadily at the top of the screen while you're playing, and as each player places a wager on it, its value increases.
The Multiway Xtra pay structure gives you 720 ways to win on each spin that you take. This is why the reel layout is different to the norm. The first and fifth reels are both three rows high; the second and fourth reels are both four rows high, and the middle reel is five rows high. The pay system lets you win prizes by getting three or more matching symbols in adjacent columns from left-to-right and right-to-left.
The MegaJackpots Siberian Storm slot uses eleven paytable symbols: the MegaJackpots logo (which features several piles of silver coins), blue, green, and gold trinkets, a pink-and-yellow ring, an ivory horn, a red tiger, a white tiger, the game logo, a tiger's eye, and a white-and-black striped tiger "wild" symbol.
Bonuses and Special Features
The striped tiger with "wild" written across it acts as the wild symbol in MegaJackpots Siberian Storm. It only ever appears on the second, third, and fourth reels, and can replace the game logo, the white tiger, the red tiger, the three items of jewellery, the ivory horn, and the ring to create winning combos.
The scatter is the close-up of a tiger's eye, and when it lands in any position across five consecutive reels, it initiates the Free Spins Bonus. As it is technically possible to trigger the bonus with more than one scatter combination, you are guaranteed to receive at least eight free spins and as many as ninety-six free spins.
Once the Free Spins Bonus is underway, you get another eight free games each time the tiger's eye scatter falls on five consecutive reels. The bonus also features stacked wilds to help boost your winning potential.
You can win the progressive jackpot while playing MegaJackpots Siberian Storm in two different ways. The first way is to land five MegaJackpots symbols anywhere on the reels (N.B., four of these symbols award one hundred times your bet). The second way is to win it via the Second Chance Feature, which is a behind-the-scenes draw that occurs after every spin.
MegaJackpots Siberian Storm uses five reels, between three and five rows of symbols, and provides you with 720 ways to win with the game's MultiWay Xtra Feature. It also comes with an average RTP (Return to Player Rate) of 91.03% and 93.07% which is linked to the value of the progressive jackpot.
The game is designed to work with desktops, laptops, mobile phones, and tablets, and includes mobile-friendly game controls when played on mobile devices.
If you loved the original IGT slot, you'll go crazy for MegaJackpots Siberian Storm. Not only do you have the chance to win a life-changing progressive jackpot, but you also get 720 ways to win with every spin for the price of as a little as 50p!
