Time Travel Tigers slot review
Time Travel Tigers slot must be the result of some latterday Swedish obsession with this stripy predator as just before this game was made we had Quickspin release Tiger's Glory and Thunderkick's Tiger Rush! Anyway, this game is kind of like Miles Bellhouse and His Curious Machine meets Dr. Watt's Up with a mysterious library behind the reels and a character that is reminiscent of Tony The Tiger from Kellog's Frosties dressed in his smoking jacket standing to the left of them emitting occasional growls. We have some cheery adventure-style music in the background and a time machine gauge at the top to complete this weird setting. I wonder that should we lose, if this time machine can send our bankroll back to where we started?
On The Reels...
There are 5 reels of 4 rows each on Time Travel Tigers slot with single and double-stacked icons and only 25 paying lines which is low for this type of grid. We pay 25 coins per spin and best icon is Sticks And Stones paying us back 150 coins for 5-of-a-kind with the Gold Scarab 125, Shield or Ink 100 and Vase 80. You have the usual Yggdrasil card suit for the low pays at 70, 60 or 50 coins with Wilds appearing too, singly on all reels. A Clockwork free spin scatter appears on all five reels too and the more the better as we will discover shortly.
Despite the complex appearance the format is very simple you'll be pleased to hear. You need 3 scatters to trigger one of four different free spin modes decided by Mr. Tiger and his electrical ball lightning device - well that's my take on it anyway.
The four bonus spin rounds are as follows and if you get a 4-scatter trigger you double the amount of free games described below and a 5-scatter trigger triples them and all can retrigger too.
Egyptian Era - 6 free spins with a diagonal Wild string of 1-20 Wilds added each spin. These are paid at 4x multiplier.
Medieval Era - 7 free spins with 1-20 cluster Wilds added each spin. These are basically double Wilds in a horizontal form and paid at 3x multiplier.
Prehistoric Era - 5 free spins with 1-20 adjacent Wilds on each spin and wins paid at 5x multiplier.
Future Era - 10 free spins with 1-20 random single Wilds placed on the grid each spin, paid at 2x multiplier.
Time Travel Tigers slot is very good to look at and interesting in both appearance and mechanic. Alas the base game pays are limited and annoyingly small so it's all about the free games rounds. When we come to these it's where the game fails in my view. The Wilds are nearly always placed where you cannot win on reels 4 and 5 and seeing more than one is unusual, 3 is very rare. It's all very well boasting a win up to 1000x bet but even a full screen of Wilds at 5x would only pay 750x so I assume that's a free spins total and you will be very fortunate to see 100x bet, so with an infrequent bonus trigger that killed it for me. True enough, you get a good 96.30% RTP and great animations but if you ever manage to travel in time yourself, set the year dial to avoid these tigers...
