Trigger an Ice Age Free Spins Bonus with This Prehistoric Slot
The Saber-Toothed Tiger was a prehistoric mammal, known for its distinctive long razor-sharp canine teeth, teeth that would bin full view, even when the tiger had its mouth closed. This creature ceased to exist only 11,000 years ago, which is incredibly recent, when you consider that dinosaurs left the earth 65 million years ago. This WMS designed slot also feature woolly mammoths and dodos, which are both also recently extinct species, while other creatures from the era also appear. Fire, fruits and necklaces featuring those teeth also appear on the reels.
Sabretooth is an enjoyable slot that takes you a past era.
Here are the highlights of the game play and features that you can get your teeth into:

To enter the free spins bonus feature you’ll need to land at least three ‘fire symbols’ across the five reels. This will award you at least 8 free spins, although this number will increase if you activate the feature with four or five scatters. It might seem unusual, but this fire symbol ignites a free spins feature where the ice age has suddenly hit, with a whole ice-filled look that signified the beginning of the end for the sabretooth tiger.
At first, the free spins feature plays much like the base game, with the same mix of symbols – the only real difference being the new icy look. However, there is a big difference! Any time a set of stacked wilds appears partially on the reels, you might see the tiger claw drag across the reels, leaving rips across the screen. Any instances where the tiger partially fills the reels will be nudged so that the tiger will now fill the reel completely.
These nudges can turn a small winning spin into a mega pay out. This will especially be the case if you are lucky enough to hit two, three or more sabretooth tigers anywhere on the reels. You can certainly expect your biggest wins during the feature and with 100 win-lines, these wins can be sizable.
This WMS designed slot bucks the trend with a 5x4 reel configuration, in an industry that seems obsessed with a 5x3 reel set up right now. This enlarged set up gives the opportunity for more win opportunities, and this slot grabs that opportunity with both hands, offering a full 100 win-lines.
While the tiger itself, being the wild, is the most valuable in the game, there is an enticing supporting cast. The other creatures on the reels include the woolly mammoth, the dodo, a rodent (perhaps another extinct one) and a rhino-like creature (it might simply be a rhino, although this might be an extinct species of the creature if it follows the trend of the other symbols).
The lower end of the pay table features a variety of fruit such as pears, plums and cherries. A spearhead shaped like a diamond for hunting also appears, while a necklace, complete with two large teeth also features.
This WMS designed slot has two distinct looks. During the base game you have serene-looking cream coloured reels and a series of animal symbols living in their natural habitat. Enter the free spins feature and the game changes completely. The reels now become much darker and ice surrounds all of the symbols. The game isn’t high on an animation, although if you land a win with the wild you will see a close up of the face of the tiger and those teeth! The game might have been better served by an epic soundtrack, instead of the generic slot jingles on offer.
Sabertooth Slots is an entertaining game that will be enjoyed by those who like a bit of history in their slots. Travelling back to a time when these creatures roamed the land makes for a good lesson in natural history, along with added wins! With just a single feature, this isn’t the most original or variety filled slot on the casino floor. However, with those nudged wilds, the feature can pay big again and again.
