Free Electric Tiger slot
Please be patient, some games take longer to load than others!
Electric Tiger slot is quite a rarity from IGT who lately seem to specialize in more complex feature-based games such as Baywatch and Harley Davidson which are far removed from their earlier and popular originals like Cleopatra. Here we have a simple Starburst-style game with equally basic retro symbols and a synthesized musical soundtrack, with neon effect graphics over a dark black and purple background. It's quite interesting to note that the tapping reel-stop sounds are taken from old classics like Wolf Run, perhaps to keep the player connected to the brand! Will the big teeth of this Tiger leave our bankroll in shreds though?
On the reels...
We begin with the usual slot grid or 5 reels of 3 rows each and 15 paying lines with all icons stacked. There are the basic fruits in neon: Cherry, Lemon, Melon, Plum and Orange paying either 100 or 200 coins for a 5-of-a-kind win. Oddly, despite the 15 lines the stake is 25 coins so this will be 4 or 8x bet. The premium icons are the Shamrock, Horseshoe, Bell and Ruby paying 350, 500, 500 and 800 coins respectively. Where is the Tiger, you ask? Well the Tiger is an expanding Wild and appears on all reels with a pay of 3,000 coins for a full line so a full screen of them would net you a not inconsiderable 1800x bet! As this is IGT, we couldn't possibly have a slot without at least one feature or bonus and they haven't disappointed as we shall find out.
This is really a wheel bonus of which there are two types. You will need a single star to appear on reel 3 to trigger it, so no multiple scatters required. When it lands, you will randomly be awarded either the Wheel Shot Bonus or the Wheel Bonus.
Wheel Shot - there are 4 'paddle steamer' style reels with arrows and cash prizes. You start on the left reel and if the cash prize has an arrow facing right you move to a spin on that wheel with higher prizes. You keep spinning until your arrows take you to wheel 1 and the arrow there points left which means game is over. If you hit the rightwards arrow on reel 4 you get a spin of the Bonus Wheel (see below) and then return to wheel 4 and continue. You can get up to 500 separate wins in this feature, and possibly some huge rewards!
Bonus Wheel - this is just a single 'Wheel of Fortune' type wheel with many segments and has some big cash values on it. Can be triggered from Wheel Shot bonus too.
Electric Tiger slot is a superb game in my opinion. The expanding Wilds come in quite often and yes, you get many dead spins but the wins are usually decent when they do drop in. The bonus trigger has a nice 'tell' as reel 3 will slow down when the Star is going to appear. You can get just 1x bet from this feature if Wheel Shot is selected for you but when it repeats many times the rewards soon accumulate, especially if the Bonus Wheel is hit once or twice during it. The volatility is at least on the high side of medium and the RTP is 92.35-96.25%. So beware! this Tiger certainly does have teeth but to get to those wheels again I'll have to return and take that chance...
