IGT MultiWay Extra Slot

If players land more than one matching symbol in a column, the pay will be multiplied. The game itself comes packed with bonus features including stacked wilds, scatter symbols, free spins and a bonus round. On the reels players will find a host of symbols all related to the Siberian tiger as well as various jewels and precious stones.
Stacked Wilds and Multipliers
The wild symbol in Siberian Storm is the side view of a Siberian tiger with the word “Wild” written across the front. In this game the wild symbol can substitute for any of the other standard reel symbols in order to create a winning combination. The wild symbol only appears on reels 2, 3 and 4 and cannot substitute for the scatter symbol.
Like the wilds in many mobile casinos pokies, the wild symbol is not the highest paying symbol, this role falls to the game logo, which pays out a reasonable 1000 coins for all five game logo symbols across the reels. The scatter symbol in Siberian Storm is the image of precious gemstones. The scatter symbol is not linked to the bonus round but plays the traditional role of being a multiplier. The scatter symbol pays out in any position on the reel. Finding all five scatter symbols across the reels multiplies a players bet by 50 times.
Eye of the Tiger Free Spins
The bonus symbol in Siberian Storm is the tiger eye symbol. This symbol is the key to the free spin bonus round. To trigger the free spin round, players must land 5 tiger eye symbols in any positon on five consecutive reels. If more than one combination per spin triggers free spins, then the sum of all the free spin combinations are awarded at once. In the free spin bonus round, players are initially awarded with 8 free spins but can win up to 96 free spins at one time. During the free spin round, the wild symbol appears stacked on the reels, giving players a chance to create even more winning opportunities. The free spin round can be re-triggered during play.
