The eye of the tiger
The theme of this slot machine is very simple; but it is effective in the way which it evokes an exotic sense of the natural world. The rustically colored reels are set over a luscious green jungle; while a very calming musical score evokes the sounds of Southern Asia where the Bengal Tiger roams free and wild.
The game’s symbols show this natural habitat in all of its vivacious glory; depicting beautifully sunlit rainforests, playful tiger cubs and the almighty Bengal Tiger itself. These symbols will burst into life whenever they appear in a winning combination; thanks to some captivating animation work by Microgaming’s design team.
Tame the Beast
Before you enter the tiger’s jungle kingdom, there are a few things that you should know. First of all, this is 243 ways to win the game, so you can forget all about pay lines and just worry about finding matching symbols on consecutive reels.
This also means that you don’t need to choose the number of pay lines that are in play during the game. Instead, you just need to determine the number of coins and the size of those coins by pressing the “Bet” tab at the bottom center of the screen. You can wager up to 15 coins but there are only three coin sizes: 0.01, 0.02, and 0.05. These two values will be multiplied together and then again by 30 to calculate your total stake per spin. If you want to find out how much each symbol is worth in a winning combination then simply click the “View Pays” link.
There is a wild and scatter symbol alongside the ordinary symbols, both of which bring a little bit of extra thrill to the gameplay. The wild symbol is represented by the “Untamed Bengal Tiger” icon and it is a very useful symbol indeed. This is because it will fill in for other symbols to make winning combinations, except for the scatter, which is depicted as a tiger’s eye in looking glass.
Just like all of the other titles in the series; Untamed Bengal Tiger is home to some very exciting special features. Some of these are active during normal spins; while some are only brought into play during the bonus free spins round. The common denominator, however, is the fact that all of these extra elements have the potential to significantly boost your winnings.
- Collect-a-Wild: this standard feature will count up how many wild symbols appear on each reel. Once you have collected four on one reel, the whole reel will become one big wild symbol for 4 spins.
- Trailing Wilds: go on the tiger’s trail with this free spin bonus. Find three or more scatters on a reel and 20 free spins will be initiated. During these free spins, wild cards will stick and slide down the reels to boost your winning chances.
- Lucky Nudge: this will help you collect those three scatter symbols by shifting them onto the screen at random.
- Your Gamble: this bonus side game is available to enter after you win any amount from any spin; (you can even activate it after a round of free spins). All you have to do is increase or decrease the size of the red zone on the radar; depending on how much of a risk you want to take. Then spin the dial and hope that it lands safely in the green area; otherwise you will lose all of the winnings that were carried into the bonus round.
Take a spin on the wild side
