Review of IGT’s Slots Machine Sumatran Storm
The name Sumatran Storm may give you an idea that the slot has a gray theme. But on the contrary. Sumatran Storm is an online slot by IGT, developed on a wildlife theme. The game revolves around the Sumatran tigers and their habitat. The symbols include everything that reminds you of the fiery, yet beautiful beast. The game has the popular Multiway Xtra feature along with the wild and scatter symbols that enable you to play more and win more without having to spend more. Graphics in the game are simply superb, especially when you hit a big win.
Theme and symbols
The Sumatran Storm slot machine has a wildlife theme based on a Bengal tiger. Symbols in this slot include the blue colored eye of the tiger, which reminds one of the stormy blue ocean, a blue diamond, the Sumatran Storm logo, a conch, pile of blue jewels, and high card values A, K, Q, J, 10 and 9. The game also has a Wild symbol with the tiger in the background. The 5-reel slot offers 720 ways to win in each spin. A total of 60 coins can be bet in each spin, with the coin value ranging from 1 to 50. You can adjust your coin value to 30, 20, 10, 5, 3, 2 and 1. The highest coin value is 50. The game has an auto spin feature that allows you to play the same bet for 10, 20, 30, 40 and 50 times.
The Multiway Xtra makes it easier for you to win more and offers you 720 ways to win. In addition to the money, the graphics and the animation keep you entertained through the slot game. The Sumatran Storm logo is the highest paying symbol offering 1000 times the win amount. The tiger is the second highest paying symbol, with a 400x followed by the blue diamond ring with 300x.
Tiger on a winning payline gets animated and growls. But if you get 5 eyes of the tiger symbols on consecutive reels, a huge tiger hologram appears on the screen as the free spins are initiated and fades away before the beginning of the bonus rounds. Triggering the free spins bonus, however, is not as easy as it may seem.
Bonuses and special features
The Multiway Xtra feature makes it possible for the player to have 720 ways to win in this game. And you don’t even have to spend the maximum for every spin to activate it. The multiplier bonus is triggered when you get at least 3 scatter symbols on the reels. Three symbols offer a 2x pay, while 4 scatters offer the 10x pay and 5 scatters pay 50 times the bet. The wild symbol appears only on reels 2, 3 and 4, which are the center reels, and substitutes all other symbols except the scatter.
The Blue eye of the tiger also triggers 5 free spins if it appears on all 5 reels in any position. The more the eye of the tiger symbols, the higher the free spins you get. In all, you can get up to 60 free spins in the initial spin itself. If you get the golden eye of the tiger in any order on consecutive reels, you get 5 free spins and the number of initial free spins you get can go as high as 150. The number of free spins triggered by the eye end when the number of spins becomes 0.
Another exciting feature in this game is that is pays both Left to right and Right to Left.
