A storming slot, with storming wins, you’ll lose yourself in the wild north trying to catch that Mega Jackpot. But it’s worth it.
We are not technically going to be doing a full review of the MegaJackpots Siberian Storm mobile slot.
The reason being that the way this IGT game plays is more or less exactly as it’s jackpot-less predecessor.
And if that’s what you want, to know about how the 720 paylines works, and how to trigger up to 96 free spins, then you are better off reading our original Siberian Storm slot review.
No. This piece is to talk numbers and convince you that if you are going to play on one of the two versions, the MegaJackpots slot should be your first choice.
Cleverly, instead of adding a new symbol, they’ve simply replaced the scatter with the MegaJackpots slot logo. Much like in the MegaJackpots Cleopatra, they replaced the wild symbol.
The reason is simple. They want to give you the same game-play as before, so you don’t feel cheated, or you are somehow less likely to win with an additional symbol that does nothing for you on screen.
However, we have to admit that with the progressive jackpot ticking along on the top, with its hexagonal reels, the MegaJackpots Siberian Storm slot feels a little small. On the bigger iPad, tablets and Android phones, it’s fine. But on the earlier version of the iPhone it can be a little squashed, so beware.
That’s when things start to really heat up in this cool cat of landscapes.
The jackpot seeds at 500,000, so you can never win any less than that. However, the odds of triggering the jackpot increase significantly when you get around the 750,000 mark, and even more so at one million.
Even more fun, the Siberian Storm MegaJackpot feels a little more reachable than Cleopatra. Reason being you only need 5 scatters anywhere on the screen, not on a way to win or or anything, to hit what could be a life-changing win.
Whilst anyone, at any bet level, can win, IGT don’t hide the fact that if you bet more, you are more likely to trigger this progressive jackpot slots biggest prize.
So what we are saying is, based on the info we’ve given you, if you can increase your bet, do it when you get to the one million mark. If you can just move from 0.50 to 1 per spin, you’ve already doubled your change of triggering the jackpot.
There’s also a second way to win, which we’ve never seen ourselves, because if we had we wouldn’t be sitting here talking to you, we’d be going first class in the Trans-Siberian rail way for a 2 months holiday.
Every spin that doesn’t award a win, there’s a behind-the-scene second chance draw that could win you the jackpot.
That means that not only is it easier to catch, but it could happen literally out of nowhere on a spin where you got nothing at all. Who said losing wasn’t exciting?
A wild beast of a slot machine, if wrestling tigers is on your do to list, MegaJackpots Siberian Storm video slot couldn’t be more highly recommended.

Wild: The white tiger with 'wild' written across it is the wild symbol and shows up on reels 2, 3 and 4 only. He comes stacked during the free spins, ramping up the storm.
Scatters and the jackpot: The MegaJackpots slot logo is the scatter symbol and any 5 anywhere on the reels could win you the progressive. 4 gets you 100x your bet, which isn't bad either.
Multi-way Extra Way: You'll get wins left to right and right to left. But that's only the start of how IGT manages to give you 720 ways to win.
You basically need to get symbols adjacent to each other on the column. The more symbols there are stacked on the reel, the more you win as they have a multiplying effect on your wins.
The Bonus Games: 5 tiger eyes in any position will trigger 8 free spins. Not as hard to get as you might think as this symbol comes stacked.
Better yet, the more tiger eyes you get on the five reels, the more free spins you are awarded - up to an impressive 96 free spins to begin with.
Though honestly, you'll mostly get about 16 and be happy with the results.
That's because the reels are richer, with more wins triggering on the spins, and stacked wilds to help multiply those wins.
You can re-trigger the free spins up to an impressive, but unlikely, 240 times.
The original game was already a favourite of ours anyway, and adding a jackpot that runs upwards of a million was never going to ruin it for us.
Some may wonder if this MegaJackpots Siberian Storm mobile slot pays as well now that it did in the original and to that we answer; no.
It pays better. It pays in the hundreds of thousands.
Perhaps you'll have to budget a little more to hit the free spins, as it does get a little tight at times, but that's just the price you have to pay for an excellent mobile jackpot online slot.
