Special Features

The first feature to discuss is the Wild symbol which is represented by an image of a Leopard. This symbol substitutes for all other symbols apart from the Scatter to help form winning combos and is the most valuable symbol in the game. Land 5 Wilds on an active payline to receive a cool cash payout worth 15X your stake!

An image of a lightning bolt surrounded by a bright blue background is the Scatter symbol in this game. Get 6 or more of these symbols on the reels to trigger the Lightning Respin bonus feature. Once activated, you will receive 3 Respins with the Scatters that triggered the feature locking into place. If additional Scatter symbols appear during Respins then they will also lock into place and the Respins will reset to 3 Respins. As soon the Respins end then all of the Scatter symbols will flip over to reveal a nice cash prize. These prizes are then added together to give out a nice big payout.

Keep a close eye on the Scatter symbols during the Lightning Respin feature as if you manage to collect 15 Scatters then you will trigger the Flippin’ Retrigger bonus round. In this fun feature, all of the Scatters are reflipped and all positions are guaranteed to reveal a cash prize!

The final feature to discuss is the Lightning Jackpot feature. This is a random feature which can trigger at the end of the Lightning Respin or Flippin’ Retrigger bonus rounds. It is possible to win one of 4 fixed jackpot prizes here with the Grand Jackpot prize being the biggest as it is worth a whopping 6,250X your wager! Like most Jackpot prizes, the higher the bet you place increases your chances of winning one of the jackpots.

Theme, Graphics and Sound

The graphics are quite good as the game takes place in front of a snow-capped mountain with a dusky sky in the background. The reels are surrounded by an icy blue colour which is a neat visual touch. Symbols are nicely designed and consist of a Leopard, a Wolf, a Bear, a Goat, a Native American, as well as a bunch of classic A – J icons. The animations are crisp as symbols speed down the reels and burst into life by enlarging when part of a winning combination. For example, the Leopard will run at the screen and leave a trail of claw marks in its wake when it is part of a win.

The music is moody and atmospheric to encapsulate the Arctic theme of the game really well.

It is also great there are 4 fixed jackpot prizes on offer as well with the Grand Jackpot prize offering a mouth-watering 6,250X your wager! In terms of variance, I found this game to be quite High so be sure to have plenty of bankroll on hand before doing any leopard tracking!
