The video slot machine that first brought IGT’s Multiway Xtra wagering system into mainstream prominence, Siberian Storm is an unusual title that features a distinctive 3-4-5-4-3 reel formation. With pays being awarded for three matching symbols on adjacent reels regardless of where they’re situated on the gameboard, the slot boasts an impressive 720 ways to win and is capable of paying out an impressive 1,000x your line bet. Also boasting a free spins feature that can award up to 240 games and additional scatter pays, the slot won’t maul your bankroll as you walk on the wild side.
Siberian Storm is based on the magnificent Siberian tiger, with this graceful feline appearing in several incarnations on its unusually-shaped reels. Orange and white tigers feature as two of the most valuable symbols in the game, while the central reels feature stacks of tigers in profile view that act as substitute wilds. A tiger’s eye symbol also triggers the free spins feature when it appears across the slot’s five reels, which themselves are counted in ice to reflect the bitter Siberian winter.
The main bonus feature in Siberian Storm is a free spins game that is triggered whenever tiger’s eye symbols appear on all five reels. This awards players with eight free spins per payline combination, but the presence of 720 ways to win means that it’s technically possible to land 96 free spins in a single game. Free spins can also be retriggered by subsequent symbols up to a maximum of 240. Throughout both the free spins feature and the base game, stacked wild symbols will appear on reels two, three and four, with these capable of providing huge payouts if several appear at once. Thanks to the slot’s Multiway Xtra wagering system, this will often result in multiple five-of-a-kind combos, which can lead to the slot paying out a maximum award of 36,000 coins in a single spin.
With IGT’s Multiway Xtra wagering system costing 50 coins per spin, players will simply have to select a coin value to determine how much they want to play for. These values range from £0.01 to £1.00, meaning the game is playable from £0.50 to £50.00 in total. Winning combos are illustrated on the board with all prize amounts recorded in a window below the reels, while all payout values and additional rules can be viewed by clicking the paytable tab.
One of IGT’s original Multiway Xtra games and still one of the best, Siberian Storm is a slot machine that is capable of consistently providing impressive payouts. A maximum coin award of 36,000 ensures the game has serious bankroll-boosting potential and the free spins feature is easier to trigger than you might think, meaning bonus wins are always on offer at no additional cost.
