Siberian Storm REVIEWS BY PLAYERS
Siberian Storm is a chilling IGT slot growling on 720 ways! These ways impact both on the left to right pays as well as right to left, talk about more bang for your buck per spin right? I like this idea! More slots should have this feature in place to benefit our odds a little more than our typical left to right addressing pays. This however bores me half of the time because it is dependent on paylines & left to right plus scatter pays. Interestingly, Siberian storm catches my eyes for it's no paylines and the growl sounds it makes upon hitting the second tiger eye scatter (rawwrr) but the second best thing this cold winter slot can produce are 5 of a kind symbols.....not one but 5 of more combinations depending on the stacks it makes on each reel. The number one for any of you who has guessed correctly are free spins. It has been a long time since I last triggered this feature and the way to get 8 free spins are to line up 5 tiger eye symbols on all 5 reels. There will be stacks of these on all the reels, 3rd reel holding the most for all 5 to produce 8 free spins per 5 of a kind tigers eye. So if there are three 5 of a kind tigers eye, it will equal 24 free spins. The last I remembered, I triggered 32 free spins on a $1.50 bet offering a 47x total win with them. Siberian Storm, the last I checked, either had those 2x paying stacks or I am thinking about Prowling Panther which either case just had normal wilds. So long ago that my icy head left me in a cool mist of questionablility for this slot......lost is the specific term. It is a decent game without much cold freezing big wins so I prefer playing Prowling Panther over Siberian Storm. This slot is more of a 6.5 out of 10!
I have seen some good winning screenshots from this Siberian Storm game, and I've always wanted to give it a try, but always unable to. Why? Because the game has never been available to players from my country. Everywhere that I tried to play the game, it just wouldn't load up, it gave error messages, or simply hang just like that, until I finally gave up trying. Then one fine day, I suddenly came across Siberian Storm whilst browsing through Casumo's list of games, which I hadn't noticed before, so it must have been added fairly recently. Thanks to Casumo, another once-forbidden game can now be played freely and at any time I want to.I've heard and read on how fascinating this Siberian Storm game could be, which only drove my curiosity even higher. Now that I've seen it, played it, and experienced it myself, my curiosity has been satisfied, I am no longer a stranger to the game, and I can freely write what I want on it too. Firstly, I must comment that I have never liked any game that uses more reels and rows than the usual. For me, 5-reels 3-rows format is still my top favourite. Siberian Storm uses a diamond shape format, in rows of 3 to 5, then back to 3 again. The icons and symbols become crowded. The paylines are no longer distinctly distinguishable. The entire play area looks unsynchronised. Others may love this layout, I don't. Perhaps I'm the kind of person who likes things to be always simple, clear and neat. Siberian Storm fails me in this respect.When things are no longer synchronised, then something has to be included to simplify an otherwise very clumsy positioning of all the icons. Voila, in comes MultiwayXtra. Hmm, what a fanciful name for something that pays both ways and 243 ways to win! But of course, 243 ways cannot fit into the diamond-shape format, so it has to be 720 ways. Change the format again and 720 ways becomes obsolete too. Sheesh! I'll stick to my 5-reels 3-rows games, thanks.The Wild symbol doesn't pay anything, doesn't double anything, but comes stacked on reels 2, 3 and 4, plus substituting for the other symbols too, except for the Scatter and the Tiger's Eyes symbols. There are 3 different Scatter symbols in this game, the normal Scatter, the usual Tiger's Eyes and the White Tiger's Eyes. Why need 3 types of them, don't ask me, ask IGT. To me, this is all completely unnecessary. Except for the normal Scatter, both Tiger's Eyes Scatters pay the same 50x the total bet for 5 of them, and both trigger the same 8 free spins anyway. Isn't this unnecessary repetition? What it actually does is to dilute the chances of getting those Scatters, making it three times harder to get any of those 5 Scatters win! But not many players even realise this! They are simply loving the chance of getting up to 240 free spins from those Tiger's Eyes, which could be won with just 1 Scatter symbol in the first place!The overall paytable is not that good either. The logo 'Siberian Storm' pays 1000x, the usual Tiger pays 400x, the White tiger pays 300x and all the rest pay from 125x to 50x the line bet for 5 of each kind, making it a very low paytable indeed. Only the 720 ways MultiwayXtra feature can make up for good decent wins from this game, if you're lucky enough.
The only description of cold and stormy for this video slot can only be found through it's icy background. There is nothing inside the reels for symbols that freezes my interests of describing a wintery storm! Perhaps the White tigers are the closest to being in the cold. I just was not entirely convinced of achieving big wins and to me, $70.50 on a $1.50 was not good enough of a big win! Hmmm perhaps Vanilla Ice would know better lol
This is another 720 line game from IGT, with a design that I really don't like. I just cant get use to it, and no matter how much I play I always get surprised when I win some thing. I don't play this game much because in my view there are much better games out there, that you can spend your money on. To be fair the pays are not too bad here and if you get wilds with pictures you can get a big pay. The middle three reels can be filled with wilds and that is what you want to get. The minimum bet on this game is €0.50 and I usually use that bet. When ever I try to raise the bet, the game stops paying almost immediately. Plus on €0.50 I can control my balance and double tap some times. As in the other games of the same make, this game pays both ways. I like that because some times you get very good wins from the other side. My best win on the lines was almost €16, which is not too bad.The feature is the best thing about this game. You get 8 free spins with a chance of re-trigger. The bad thing is that you have to get and eye on each reel to get it. That is very hard to do and when you get four of them it can really piss you off. Thankfully it did not take me too long to get the feature and I must admit I was excited to see what will happen.The only difference is that some of the pictures change and you get 8 free spins. I almost re triggered them on my first spin but the last eye did not come out :( I got few wilds and small wins in general. In total I won €18 and was not too happy.Overall I don't like the way the reels are but I like the graphics. My rating for this game would be 6 out of 10.
Playtech slots can be a bit hit and miss at times – for such a large company the graphics and sound can often be substandard and the animation a bit rubbish with the reels jumping around all over the place even on a heavily specified computer. I don’t know what its all about and it does seem to depend a lot on which casino, website or other place the game is running – download casinos seem to perform best as usual – but Marilyn does seem to work quite smoothly, at least on my computer.I’m a huge fan of Marilyn Monroe and recently read her autobiography, its really quite a read and I definitely recommend it to everybody along with the other books written by the same author such as Michael Jacksons biography … that one is pretty chunky to be fair but well worth the read all the same! So I was hoping this would be a great slot game and do the undoubted queen of Hollywood a little justice, but something struck me very soon after firing it up ….
This is another classic IGT game that moved out of the casinos and onto the internet a long time ago, much to the excitement of players like myself who didn't really expect on-line games would ever be able to match the standard of the expensive machines used on the casino floor. It sounds pretty silly now, but it's just what we were all used to at the time - home video game consoles were no match for the cabinets found in the arcades back then either. Fortunately unlike the arcades the casinos are still going strong, though I suspect they have lost a reasonable percentage of their custom to players who are now happy to gamble from the comfort of their home on machines with a generally higher RTP!Siberian Storm is possibly the first game I ever played that utilised the non standard 3, 4, 5, 4, 3 reel layout as well as 720 ways to win and pays-both-ways (called Multiway Xtra in IGT games). These features were combined by NetEnt in their game Wild Rockets some time later, and it's not unusual to find people who think NetEnt invented these tricks! NetEnt have certainly come up with plenty of unique and innovative slots over the years but you might be surprised to learn just how many they borrowed along the way too.There's a few unusual choices in the winning combinations of this game such as the scatter symbols only return a pay - you need a different symbol to start the bonus round. I'm not sure why IGT chose to do it this way though it may have been necessary to block a few winning combinations with the scatters to get the RTP down to an acceptable level. I'm just guessing here though! To enter free spins you need to land an eye symbol on all five reels from left to right. Thees are stacked on several of the reels and unusually it's possible to be awarded more than one set of free spins from a single winning combination - up to 12 in fact, for a maximum of 96 free spins which can also be retriggered.Many IGT games can be a little bit dull - low variance, lots of dead spins. Siberian Storm isn't one of them though and its telling that slot developers were still borrowing ideas from this game many years after it's release. If you haven't played it before then it's definitely worth hunting it down on your next session!
It is true that there are possible up to 96 Free Spins where each and every spin is great but equally true is that there are possible only 6-8 Free Spins from which one hardly comes with a satisfying win.
The bonus round uses different reel strips which the paytable claims contain extra wilds - this is true of course but it is very noticeable that you hit a great deal more small three of a kind wins during the free spins, balanced out with less dead spins and less four/five of a kind combinations. With stacked wilds and 720 ways to win both ways you'd expect some huge bonus rounds, but even when I have started off with 24 free spins I consider 100x my bet to be a pretty decent outcome in this game. Much bigger wins are possible of course and I have seen a couple of 1000x hits in the past - sadly I wasn't the one playing the game at the time!It has to be said that whilst this game is very similar to the land casino version, it suffers from a dramatic downgrade in terms of graphical quality much like Kitty Glitter and Da Vinci Diamonds did when they were converted for internet play. I can only assume that this was done to trim the size of the download to accommodate the slow modems that were commonplace at the time these games were released, but it's also possible that IGT wished to keep their most premium experience in the casinos too. On the plus side, the RTP of the on-line game is several percentage points higher than the casino one, which has to be a reasonably fair trade off I think!
Despite all the good things I've read about this Siberian Storm game, my own plays on the game were nothing more than disappointing. The chances of getting good wins lie within those Free Spins games, yet they can hardly come when you want them too, taking hundreds of useless spins before one can come. Yes, it's true that this game may be a high variance game, but the paytable doesn't really provide for huge wins, which is a big shame. Nah, Siberian Storm can stay in Siberia as far as I'm concerned. I've got much better high variance games to play with.
Another wonderful entertainment, with a plot of snow-covered Siberian storms, for a large number of advanced gamers, is the Siberian Storm slot, which is among the many slot machines of online casinos. The atmosphere of harsh Siberia is present in the qualitative graphic and sound design of the gameplay. There is a bonus round in which players are awarded 96 free spins and who can give another 240 additional free spins. And if you study all the rules well and correctly use the bonuses and auxiliary functions of the Siberian Storm slot, sooner or later the gamer will receive a generous jackpot in the amount of 12,500 conventional units.
A simple game with excellent cash winnings.
