You might expect a video slot called Electric Tiger to take you on safari. It is in fact a futuristic, neon-filled fruit machine. Played using a 5 reel, 15 payline game engine, this IGT offering comes with a multi-level spin the wheel bonus round that can deliver some potentially impressive rewards. Play this medium to high variance game on all devices from between 25p and £10 per spin.
There’s a futuristic feel to Electric Tiger – on the reels you’ll see neon gemstone style symbols. In order of value are cherries, melons and lemons which pay up to 4 times your bet per payline followed by oranges and pay up to 8 times your bet.
Next comes the 4-leaf clover which awards up to 14 times your bet and the horse shoe and bell which offer up to 20 times your bet. The top standard symbol is the pink diamond which pays 32 times your bet if you land 5 in combination.
They’re joined by the Electric Tiger which is the wild – this replaces all the standard fruity symbols listed above and pays 120 times your bet if you land 5 on a payline. When the Electric Tiger lands, you will trigger the Expanding Wilds feature as it expands to turn the whole of the reel wild.
Central to the feature action are the bonus wheels which can be accessed from the Gateway Bonus – this is triggered whenever a star symbol lands on reel 3. You’ll then be awarded 1 of the Wheel Shot Bonus or the Wheel Bonus features:
In the Wheel Shot Bonus feature, you’ll get 1 initial spin on Wheel 1. These come with cash values that are attached to segments that point left and right. If you land on 1 that points right, you’ll get a bump to the next wheel to the right where bigger prizes are on offer.
The process is the then repeated with 4 possible wheels to work through. You can move left or right here. The spins keep on coming until you land in a segment that points left on wheel 1. If you get the Wheel Bonus feature from the Gateway Bonus, you’ll get a single spin the biggest paying wheel.
Electric Tiger is a simple game – you won’t find any free spins on offer here. The only features are the wheel bonuses. These can deliver some decent results if you manage to get a bump or 2 and reach the higher paying wheels. The stacked wilds help in the base game too. The variance is in the medium to high range with top payouts of 1,800 times your bet if you fill the reels with Electric Tiger wilds.
With top graphics and a bouncy, beat heavy soundtrack, the design in Electric Tiger is nicely done. The limited range of extras means it won’t be for everyone but the bonus wheels deliver enough bite to make Electric Tiger worth a spin. If you like tigers, Siberian Storm by IGT has Bengal (white) tigers.
