In early 2015, Interactive Gaming Technology entered the next phase in re-launching its MegaJackpots progressives by releasing two new titles online – Cleopatra MegaJackpots and Siberian Storm MegaJackpots.
The Siberian Storm MegaJackpots slot is set in the powdery white wilderness of the Russian Far East – the natural habitat of the legendary Siberian Tiger, which provides the primary inspiration for this slot.
Siberian Storm MegaJackpots is now available for desktop and mobile in 14 languages and 31 currencies, making it a highly accessible slot to players from all over the US and Europe. It includes stacked wilds and other symbols, a unique hexagonal layout, free spins, multipliers, and access to the MegaJackpots progressive award
MultiWay Xtra Betting System
Experienced slots players start to get rather excited when they hear the words “bi-directional paylines”. That’s because almost all slots only pay out for combinations matching from left to right but, every now and then, a real gem comes along that pays both ways – left to right and right to left. Such slots have what is referred to as a bi-directional betting system.
Interactive Gaming Technology has its own special name for bi-directional wagering – MultiWay Xtra betting Siberian Storm MegaJackpots is an IGT slot featuring MultiWay Xtra betting and it has 720 possible paylines as a result.
Top Jackpot and IGT MegaJackpots Award
The smallest possible Siberian Storm MegaJackpots wager is set at 50.00 credits but players may wager up to 500.00 credits per spin, which puts them in line to win the slot’s largest payouts.
There are two jackpots accessible to Siberian Storm MegaJackpots players. The first is the slot’s own top payout of 50 000 coins, which is paid out for five white tiger symbols on a single active payline. The second is the MegaJackpots progressives pooled award, which can grow to a substantially higher amount.
Siberian Storm MegaJackpots Scatter Symbol
A trio of diamonds behind the word “SCATTER” indicates the scatter symbol in Siberian Storm MegaJackpots. Instead of the usual free spins, the Siberian Storm MegaJackpots scatter triggers win multipliers when three or more appear:
- Three scatters = 2x multiplier
- Four scatters =10x multiplier
- Five scatters = 50x multiplier
Siberian Storm MegaJackpots Stacked Wilds
A number of the symbols in Siberian Storm MegaJackpots come stacked on the reels and this includes the wild – although this only occurs on Reels 2, 3 and 4. This may partially explain the slot’s high RTP, which hovers around the 96% mark.
The wild in Siberian Storm MegaJackpots is the white tiger, which can substitute any other symbol, except the diamond scatter and tiger’s eye bonus, to make up winning combinations.
Tiger’s Eye Free Spins Bonus
As with most online video slots these days, Siberian Storm MegaJackpots periodically awards free spins to players. These are triggered when three or more Siberian Storm MegaJackpots tiger’s eye bonus symbols appear on the reels. Players are automatically given eight free spins but may enjoy as many as 240 free spins, as more can be activated Siberian Storm MegaJackpots during free spins rounds.
