Siberian Storm Review - Editor’s Impressions

Want to feel the thrill of playing hot slots straight from cold Siberia? This is precisely the type of unexpected mixture the Siberian Storm slot machine offers. Here’s our Siberian Storm slot review!

Siberian Storm has an impressive 720 win ways. The images of the mighty white tiger and the dramatic music in the background add to the overall feeling of Siberian cold. However, there’s nothing to be afraid of, as the Siberian Storm game has excellent payouts and several distinctive features.

Much like our other slot reviews, we’ll discuss the design, features, RTP, and other characteristics of this slot in this review. So, pack warm clothes, keep reading and find out everything you need to know about the Siberian Storm!

Overview of Siberian Storm Game

The tiger-themed Siberian Storm online casino slot is powered by IGT. The game has five reels and a stunning 720 ways to win, thanks to its MultiWay Xtra feature. White is the most prominent colour on this slot machine, which is natural considering the snowy setting. 

The symbols in this game include the Siberian Storm logo, the Siberian tiger, the orange tiger, the claw of the tiger, the eye of the tiger, and more. 

The game has a Scatter symbol that triggers bonuses and a Wild symbol featuring the white tiger.

We still have several essential topics to cover, so keep reading our Siberian Storm slot review.

Siberian Storm RTP, Payout and Volatility

The Siberian Storm RTP is 92.52% and it has medium-to-high volatility. The payout rates are even more impressive as the maximum possible win is £25­,00­0,0­00. ­

However, note that this would require every Free Spin to land a max payout, out of the possible maximum 240 spins in the Free Spins round.

Siberian Storm Graphics and Gaming Experience

Needless to say, a slot’s gameplay should match the theme. With a white tiger on two of the symbols, a reel outline made of ice, and icicles below the reels, the Siberian Storm slot machine does remarkably well in that regard. 

The music and the background match the overall snowy Siberian feel of the game perfectly. When you score a big win, a cool animation of the white tiger flashes on the screen, and you can also hear it roar.

Siberian Storm Bonus Features

As well as Stacked Wilds and Scatter symbols, the Siberian Storm slot also has a Free Spins feature you wouldn’t want to miss out on. 

Siberian Storm Free Spins

Siberian Storm offers up to a massive 240 Free Spins. Five Scatters need to land on consecutive reels to trigger eight Free Spins, but if more Scatters land on the same spin, these add up to 96 Free Spins in total. 

Even more impressive is that Free Spins can be retriggered up to 240 times, which is one of the highest amounts we’ve ever seen from this type of bonus round. 

What Are the Pros and Cons of Playing Siberian Storm?

Let’s list the pros and cons of playing both the demo and the Siberian Storm real money slot.


  • 720 ways to win
  • Astonishing max win
  • Free Spins can be retriggered up to 240 times


  • Low RTP

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.


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.

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!


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 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!


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!

To be well understood, I am a modest player and generally I am very stingy. I play in online casinos for about 3 years now and very rarely I played for real money.

Even less than that and I won and withdraw something and never, and I repeat never I would allow me to play at a game like the “Siberian Storm” slot if I should do it on real money. Although probably that playing for real money it is possible that 1 coin = 1 cent, playing for virtual money 1 coin = 1 Euro. The screen-shots above are making clear why I had to say all this in the introduction: a win of 4451 Euro at the end of the Free Spins when you play on a bet of 50 Euro is equivalent to a win of only 44.51 Euro if playing on a bet of 50 cents. Even played for an assumed minimum bet this win means a lot.

The Siberian Storm slot is a good one, even very good I need to say from the beginning. It is a bit like Rambo, which means it has the same set of reels (3x4x5x4x3) and all ways win (720) paying both ways. Who would want more from a slot? Maybe just 1024 ways both ways to be better (but until now I have not played a slot like this). The “Siberian Storm” is the type of slot that will take you up by the storm winds and fly you on the wings of a story about the Siberian tigers, where the game has unsuspected extremes. The music is extremely exciting and adds to the thrill of the game itself. The quality of this slot is perfect and there are not enough words to describe the entire game here. I will not make statistics because playing at a slot no matter how good it is one can also lose (here I lost with all those big wins above).

I just say thank you for a story so beautiful and for a slot so well done.


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.

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.

When I first heard about this slot I found its unique qualities very interesting and attractive so didn’t need much time to elapse to invite the game for an introductory play session. I remember how strange was its hexagonal shape and I was completely lost how it worked (I still don’t know everything precisely though it’s one of my most frequently played IGT games), and at first sight I liked its symbols like tigers, tiger eyes, little gems and the snow illustration but I think this is not the most important part of this great product.

The game has 720 ways to win and uses both ways (left to right and right to left) to achieve this. Because of the uncommon layout the symbols sometimes appear in stacked format causing accumulated winnings. Partly because of this, the best paying single five of a kind win awards only 1000 coins and other features in themselves also can’t be mentioned among the top extras in the market, for example 5 Scatters pay 50 times of total bet or the Wild (appears only on the second, third and fourth reels) doesn’t have plus multiplier value. If every reel has at least one Tiger eye icon, 8 free spins are awarded but every additional figure on that spin mean another 8 spins. Though I had never got more than 32 free spin and it only happened just one time, but theoretically even 96 free games can be won in just a single spin thank to the stacked quality of the triggering figure. The feature can be re-triggered.

I know these features don’t seem to be too generous but keep in mind the both way win method, stacked symbols and the special arrangement. I think these 3 attributes are the heart and soul of the game and Overall, I find this game enough profitable to return it from time to time and though so far I haven’t got any win that would be even close to an eye-popping win but had several times when I could be satisfied with the outcomes.

I tried many different online casinos because I always keep my eyes on the best chances to win and when I saw some winning print screens from the Siberian Storm video slot I wanted to try it. I saw this video slot appears only a few casinos but when I found it on the Net bet casino I decided to try this slot with some money.

This slot has 720 winning lines because it has a unique construction. The reels don’t have the same amount of cells, like in the Rambo video slot the middle reel has the most cell and the edge reels has the lowest number. Thanks for the unique layout this slot has a high potential to give valuable amounts. The other good thing the Siberian Storm pays in two directions, from the left to right and right to left. I didn’t meet a lot video slot what is pay in the same way but definitely I liked it. Even it has many lines the minimum bet is only half euro which is not too high for 720 ways I think.

The stacked wilds are multiplies the winning combinations and can give huge amounts of credits because the much lines creates more and more chance to get a winning line. It also has a scatter symbol which is pays well if you get lot of them. To trigger the free games is always hard because to activate the free spins you have to collect five from the tiger eye symbols horizontally. If you hit five of them you will get 8 free games, but any additional tiger eye symbol gives extra free spins. Even it has stacked free spin feature symbol I get those free spins hard, but it always compensates me in the free rounds because I usually get nice amounts from it.

Hello, I am not a fan of IGT-slots and therefore I do not have a so much experience from them. Honestly I have played those just very rarely and about IGT-slots, I can easily name just two: Monopoly Plus and Siberian Storm.

Siberian Storm has very nice graphics and like name of the slots says, those are typically Siberian-themed and snow and ice in background. Siberian tiger is one of the most well-known animals in Siberia and that's why Siberian Storm has also tiger-theme. I have to give a lot of credits for those awesome graphics.

I have played Siberian Storm only in Mr. Green-casino and only in minimum-bet, which is 50 cents. In that slot you cannot choose lesser lines and have to say that I have not ever won almost anything from that slot. That slot is just not for low-rollers, I think. Well, positive things is that you can win in both ways: From left to right and from right to left and you have even 720-lines for winnings, so there have to be possibilities for getting big wins. :)

There are scatters and wilds in Siberian Storm, but I have got only two scatters and therefore just got my bet back, so I cannot say anything about free spins, because just no experience of those and wilds are similar way common, like in many other slots also.

Siberian Storm is very beautiful slot and it is worthy of trying, though I think that it has quite big variance and it is mainly for high-rollers, so I cannot recommend it for everyone, except for those beautiful graphics and for testing it, because of curiosity. ;) Anyway, if you are fan of IGT-slots, Siberian Storm might be right slot for you. :)

I think that in future I am not going to play it, except if someday I have won a lot from other slots in Mr. Green or if someday again I visit in some land based casinos, in Helsinki or in elsewhere and I find that slot from there. :) Siberian Storm has also sequel called Sumatran Storm, with similar tiger-theme, but I have not ever tried it.

Siberian Storm, can be played only at a land based casino in the Netherlands, IGT wagerworks games are not allowed to played in the Netherlands online casino, it's a pity because I eager to play it online since I am out of luck on the land based casino.
I have spent more than 400 spins and never got any feature bonus round ( free spins). In order to get the feature bonus round you need to get the tiger's eye on all reels ( at least one eye per reel ). This is very hard to get but then again maybe you can win big when the bonus round is triggered. The reels spin quite fast, you get the bonus round before you know it's there.

I find this game very unique, 1024 winlines with another words, all combinations possible, like other all winlines video slots, the payout is minimum, the free spins feature is the only way to win big. I know I have spent more than 200 euro playing this game without one bonus round but I still want to experience the big win, I know that this game can do it. 2 scatters pay back you stake, 3 scatters pay 3 times your stake. In other words, the more scatters you have the more stakes/bet it pays. Scatters do not trigger the feature bonus round thou.

The game must be that great and addictive that makes you come back to play while you have lost a sum of money to it. I love tigers, especially the white one. I will visit this game very soon to try my luck again. I do recommend this game to all slots player who are able to play it. I hope in the future we are able to play IGT wagerworks games online. In my experience, when you have spent more than 200 spins, just quit and take another chance at another day. I wish those who gonna play this game a good luck.
