Untamed – Bengal Tiger is a five-reel slot machine with three rows of symbols. This is also one of the newer style of “243 Ways” slots, which offers a slightly different style of play than the traditional slots where you play a variable number of lines and pay for each one you choose to activate. In this game, you’ll instead pay one flat rate that allows you the opportunity to win on every possible combination of symbols running left-to-right: a total of 243 different “lines.”
This simplifies things greatly for the player, as you don’t have to worry about how much you want to spend (other than choosing the size of your bet) or worry about missing a win because you didn’t play the right paylines.
The object of Untamed is to match your symbols from left-to-right across the reels. You’ll be matching different pictures of tigers (solo tigers, mother tigers with cubs, and so forth), along with landscapes and prey. There are also some more traditional slots symbols in the form of aces, kings, and so on down through tens. Individual winning combinations don’t pay that much at all, but since you’ll essentially always win multiple times whenever you connect with several similar symbols, your winnings can add up fast.
Untamed features special symbols as well. The Untamed logo is a wild, which substitutes for any of the normal symbols in the game. These symbols also participate in the Collect a Wild feature; if you “collect” four wilds on the same reel during your playing session, you’ll then get to have that reel remain entirely wild for four spins!
A peering tiger eye acts as the scatter symbol; hit three or more, and you’ll win a multiple of your wager on that spin (up to 100x your initial spin for hitting five scatters). Three or more scatters triggers a free spins game as well, granting you 20 free plays. Each of these spins also includes a trailing wilds feature, in which wild symbols will create a “trail” that follows them down the reel, giving you a chase at filling entire reels with wild symbols. There’s also a “lucky nudge” feature, in which a tiger eye that lands just above or below the reels may push itself onto the screen, which can help activate the free spins game.
With beautiful presentation, a fun theme, and lots of ways to win, Untamed – Bengal Tiger promises to be one of the wildest new slots available this year. You should start seeing Untamed in Microgaming casinos using the Viper platform this week.
