Sumatran Storm by IGT
Siberian Storm was and continues to be one of the very biggest slots out there in both online and offline venues and so nobody can really blame IGT for taking the formula and creating another game around it. Calling the Sumatran and Siberian versions of the game would be doing both titles a disservice though as this game is a cracker in its own right.
As you’d expect, the Siberian tiger has been dispensed of in favour of its Sumatran cousin and this game is decidedly orange in style. That’s not the most noticeable element of the game, however, as the iconic reel layout of the first game makes its return, complete with the Multiway Xtra 720 ways to win configuration. For those of you that haven’t experienced it before, it means that wins are valid when starting on the first reel and the fifth reel, opening up many more winning opportunities.
Tiger Wilds and Tiger’s Eyes for Bonus Action
The wild card is represented by the Sumatran tiger on his very own symbol and he can land anywhere on the board, even coming along in stacks that are large enough to cover any reel – even all five symbol positions on the middle one. It is joined as a feature symbol by the tiger’s eye and you’ll need one on every reel in order to activate the free spins round. These are stacked too, so while you’ll only receive five spins for five in view, the number builds up quickly. Just one additional scatter bumps the total up to ten and it is possible to grab an initial sixty free spins with every available eye on view, making it one of the biggest IGT bonus rounds out there.
That’s not all either, as the number of spins will continue to rise every time you land further combinations of tiger eyes on the board, up to an exceptionally generous 150 spins in total.
In fairness, Sumatran Storm is more of a clone of Siberian Storm than we let on, but there is a crucial difference when playing online. Siberian Storm now employs Mega Jackpots as standard, meaning that a portion of your stake is devoted to filling that prize pool as standard. If you’d rather trade in the opportunity to win a jackpot for a more consistent base game then we’d definitely suggest Sumatran Storm instead. If you’d prefer to see the differences for yourself then you can do just that too as both games can be played in full right here at Games Mania!
