Siberian Siren HTML5 Online Slots Overview
The Sirens of Greek Mythology were reputed to lure unwary sailors onto the rocks of their island homes by the beauty of their singing: Amaya Software has borrowed slightly from this, to create the idea of a similarly enchanting beauty, who lures seekers of fortune into a frozen Russian wilderness: the difference here is that there is potential for great earnings, rather than foundering helplessly. More good news for travellers is that the HTML 5 version ensures portability on a range of Android and iOS powered devices. Now, whether you are sitting on the beach or being a passenger in a stuffy vehicle, you can visit the fantastical, Cyrillic themed realm of the Siberian Siren.
Sound effects are suited to the theme: the background music appears in the opening, and during spins, but is not continuous, and borrows as much from Prokofiev as it does from Disney.
Symbols in the Snow
The low and high value symbols are all related to the theme: there are a number of these, since Siberian Siren does not use the traditional playing card symbols. Rather, the ice crystal, the pendant and the Faberge egg function as the lowest values; next in order are the bottle of potion, the samovar, the rose, and the small bird, nestling against the snow.
In addition to this, the Faberge egg can trigger Free Spins when 3 or more of them appear in a line: these can be stacked during free spins themselves, up to a maximum tally of 120.
The higher values are represented by the husky dog, which barks when it finds itself in the company of its fellows in a winning line, and the eponymous Siren. The maximum jackpot is one when the Siren appears in Line 1 followed by four white tigers. The White Siberian tiger is otherwise a Wild symbol, as one might expect of such a beast, and can substitute for any other.
There is also a Golden Tiger symbol, which only appears during Free Spin bonuses, on reels 2, 3 and 4: this can substitute for any other, as well as being a Scatter symbol, which earns free spins.
These are more of the “Free Spins” variety in Siberian Sirens, up to 120 of these if landing Wild Retrigger bonuses: the main lure of the game is the potential massive payout of 50 000 coins if playing maximum bet, and landing the Siren/Four Tiger combination in Line 1.
Lines are fixed at 40 per spin, but the stake on each line can be varied between 0.02 and 5, with 1 to 5 credits per line. A handy tally appears at the bottom of the screen, and there is an Autoplay feature for those who like to keep several games on the go simultaneously.
HTML 5: the Best way to Travel to Siberia
Siberian Siren is not the most visually entertaining of Amaya’s games, but it does carry through its theme nicely; the artwork is authentic, rather than eye-catching, and the animation is simple, but fun. All of this means that it does translate well to portable devices, and is a great way to take the tedium out of travel, or simply relaxing.
