Siberian Storm, originally a land casino game, is a notoriously volatile slot, meaning that it can leave you without any wins at all for 20 or 30 spins, which can be as frustrating and damaging as…being caught in a Siberian Storm.  But the flipside of volatile games is that when they pay out, they really pay out.

As an example, a good win in the base game can see you win 40x your bet but a really good run on the free spins (we’ll come to them in a bit) can see you rewarded with up to 400x your bet. So, it’s like we say, this is the sort of game that can be a bit ‘feast-or-famine’. You’re going to need both a decent-sized budget and some patience if you’re to take on this Storm!

As per usual, Wilds can substitute for anything except special symbols and the Wild here is the full-sized Siberian Tiger. Unlike in most slots, the Scatter isn’t actually your route to free spins. Instead, getting 3, 4 of 5 Scatters get you 2x, 10x and 50x your bet respectively.

The free spins are triggered by getting a Tiger’s Eye on each of the reels and you start off with 8 free spins but they can be re-triggered, meaning you can get a maximum of 240 of them. That’s about as rare as escaping a Siberian Storm alive without any snow equipment, but it does happen! The free spins, by the way, are played on a ‘richer’ set of reels to the base game.

Thanks to Multi-Way Extra wins, you can get bigger payouts in the base game if you have more than one winning symbol on the same reel. A good way to boost the bank if you’re not hitting those free spins.
