Snow Leopard is a cold slot that features six reels and forty paylines. The slot may have a snowy theme, but its bonuses are quite hot, with free spins that can be reactivated, expanding wilds on reel 1, and plenty of other lucrative opportunities to win.
The game is cast in an icy cold region where the Snow leopard finds a comfortable habitat to thrive in, plus plenty of other creatures like rabbits and squirrels. You will also spot a female Arctic warrior, plus, of course, the Snow Leopard. In the background is a lovely snow-capped mountain standing in white snowy scenery. The graphics are impressive, and so is the way the high-value symbols are designed.
How to play Snow Leopard
You get to play this game for 10p to £500 per spin on any device (PC, iOS or Android smart device).
Symbols and Bonuses to look out for:
The Arctic warrior symbol has the highest value in this game, as it wins you a 6x multiplier on your total stake when six of them appear on the reels. The snow leopard face icon is the wild to watch; it can replace all base game symbols. An interesting feature to note is that the snow leopard face is always present on reel one and is fully expanded; this is the snow leopard wilds feature, and it will increase your wins.
The paw prints are the scatters associated with the free spins, and you will have to land three or more to activate the free mode. 3, 4, and 5 scatter symbols will reward you 8, 20, and 50 free spins respectively; and the sticky wild will still be there during the free mode. Lucky players can also land wilds on the other reels, and you can make all six reels wild in this game.
The Big Bet bonus
Another thrilling feature in this game is the Big Bet bonus, where you can get up to 5 linked spins on your reels. You get to choose between a £20, £30, £40, or £50 double-play feature; where you play two 6-reel 40-payline sets to give you a total of 80 paylines:
- £20: 5 big bet spins where three scatters give you 100 free spins
- £30: 5 big bet spins with 100 free spins with 2x multipliers from the stacked wilds
- £40: 5 big bet spins, up to 100 free spins with both 2x and 3x wild stack multipliers
- £50: 5 big bet spins, 100 free spins with 2x, 3x, 4x, and 5x stacked multipliers. The lower value poker symbols (J, 10, and 9) are removed to boost your wins.
The best thing about this feature is that the value of your symbols will double, such that the 6 Arctic warriors, for instance, will give you a 12x multiplier instead of a 6x! You will also get 100 free spins up from 50 if you land 6 scatters.
In addition to the double-play option, you can choose Independent Reels where the two sets of reels and wilds are the same, Matched Spins and wilds where the reels spin in a synchronized way or Matched Wilds where the reels will spin independently. This game feature boosts the RTP to 98.2% from 94.2%.
Snow Leopard is one excellent Barcrest slot with plenty of opportunities to win, especially from the Big Bet feature and the 50 free spins. However, you may want to note that it is a mid-variance game.
