The theme of the Siberian Storm slot might be ice cold, but you could be flush with success thanks to the multiple ways to win. The base game has decent payouts because you can win matching symbols from left to right and from right to left.

Set across an innovative five reels in different rows, in a 3-4-5-4-3 format, you can win with symbols landing anywhere on three or more successive reels, rather than in the usual way on pre-defined paylines.

Regular players will recognize the mechanics for this IGT game as it’s exactly the same as the Thundering Buffalo slot, which is also available from TwinSpires Casino.

How to Play the Siberian Storm Slot Machine

As the name of the game suggests, the Siberian Storm slot is set in something of a bleak landscape. A frozen wasteland may seem unappealing, but you will love the action on offer.

In the base game, your primary objective is to match at least three of the same symbols anywhere on successive reels – starting on the left or the right (known as the MultiWay Xtra feature), giving 720 ways to win. Your win increases if more than one of the symbols appears in the same reel.

You can win many small prizes in this way, but chances increase with the regular appearance of the Wild symbol, which acts as a substitute for all others, except the scatter and bonus symbols, and can appear stacked on the center reels.

The lower-paying symbols in this game include various jewels and a tiger’s tooth. But the higher symbols bringing richer rewards are the tiger and, best of all, the Siberian Storm logo, five of which pay 1,000 times your bet.

Meanwhile, land the Scatter symbols to win multipliers of your bet in these quantities:

  • 3 scatters, 2x
  • 4 scatters, 10x
  • 5 scatters, 50x

But all of this pales in significance compared with the bonus round. The bonus symbol is the Eye of the Tiger (have you now got that song in your head?), and when you land one of these on each of the reels, you trigger eight three spins. The bonus symbols can appear stacked, and if this happens, you get more free spins, with up to 96 available.

During the free spins bonus, the symbols take on a richer look, and while they are not worth more, the stacked wilds appear more often during the free spins section.

Best of all, you can add even more free spins because the bonus symbols continue to appear. In total, you can end up with a maximum of 240. That would warm up any freezing night in the Siberian wastelands.

That’s all there is to the Siberian Storm slot machine – no complicated features or unnecessary layers of gameplay. It’s simple, looks cool, and plays beautifully, whether on your mobile device, tablet, or laptop, and comes packaged up with a decent RTP of 96%.
