Tiger Treasures slot review
Not to be confused with RTG's big cat-themed video slot of the same name, Bally's version takes a rather more Indian-tinged tip, with lots of animals taken from the sub-continent.
243 Ways to Win!
A 5 reel, 243 ways to win slot, Tiger Treasures transports you to a land of gold, exotic landscapes, and big bad tigers. You know you're in India as the reels are accompanied by a neat little tabla signature as they tumble down the screen.
As well as the flowers and tigers, we get plenty of diamond-encrusted 10-through-Ace symbols, peacocks, camels and treasure. Hang on a minute. Camels? Peacocks? Erm, ok, perhaps we aren't in India. But the game should definitely come with Smell-o-Vision as you can imagine the incense burning behind the reels.
It's All About Wild Tigers!
The tiger of the title predictably plays as the Wild. He substitutes for all symbols other than the Bonus symbol, and appears on reels 2, 3 and 4 only. Get Wilds in a winning combo and the tiger lets out a nice little roar.
Win 5 Free Spins with a 30x Multiplier
Bag three or more of the Bonus symbols, meanwhile, and you will trigger the Free Spins feature. Simply choose from one of the options, each one offering different possibilities to win. For example, 20 free spins with a 2, 3 or 5x multiplier can be had, but so can 5 free spins with a multiplier of 10, 15 or 30. Do you go for fewer spins with a bigger multiplier or plump for more spins offering a lower multiplier?
Tiger Treasures - the Bally version - seems to offer much (the tiger theme is a popular one in slots) but aside from the 243 ways to win and potentially lucrative free spins, there's not much in the way of exciting bonus games or animation. RTG's jungle-themed Tiger Treasures is the most logical alternative for those of you who enjoy this, particularly as it carries a progressive jackpot. However, the Asian charms of iSoftBet’s Chinese-themed Oriental Tiger is a perfectly acceptable alternative too.
