Free Snow Leopard Slot Machine - Instant Play Game
Snow Leopard is a Barcrest video slot released in 2014, offering gamblers a 5x4 playing field with 40 fixed paylines. Players can wager between £0.10 up to £500 per spin, which is standard for Barcrest games, and gives players a rather wide range of options at which they can bet, which should please most gamblers. The title has a guaranteed Wild reel on every spin, as well as a free spins bonus that can reach up to 50 free spins, or 100 during Big Bet.
As the name implies, the snow leopard is a major part of the title. The slot looks quite good for 2014, with the leopard showing impressive animations. All other icons are static, and so is the background, which depicts a snowy, mountainous region in which plant life seems to have long been buried beneath the snow. However, you can still see some animals, like rabbits and wolves, scattered about. The reels themselves have a dark blue background with a white line separating it from the backdrop – and its upper border is covered with snow, which is a nice touch.
Symbols include generic playing card icons like 9, 10, J, Q, K and A, which you can find in other games, as well as symbols with unique artwork for this title, like the rabbit, the squirrel, a leopard, and an arctic huntress. The leopard acts as a Wild, while a golden coin with a cyan paw print embedded on top of it acts like a Scatter.
During every spin, regardless if it’s a regular or free spin, one reel is chosen at random to become Wild. This reel changes on each spin. During free spins, the Wild reel remains locked in place, with a chance for additional ones to become Wild, too.

Free spins are triggered by collecting three, four or five Scatters on the playing field, which rewards gamblers with eight, twenty and fifty free spins respectively. During Big Bet, it is possible to collect six Scatters, which can reward one hundred extra turns. It is also possible to collect additional Scatters to win more free spins, and the amount of free spins you get is the same as when you trigger it – three Scatters will reward eight free spins, and so on.
What makes Big Bet stand out is the fact players have not one, but two reels which are played at the same time, with win lines across both being accumulative. Before the Big Bet spins begin, players can choose to have reels spin independently, to have Wild reels match across both playing fields, or to have reels synchronised and produce the same results. Upgrading your Big Bet also enables and upgrades Wild stack multipliers, and on the maximum bet it also gets rid of 9, 10 and J symbols.
The largest jackpot you can hope to score in Snow Leopard is 500x the wager. We weren’t able to find the volatility of this video slot, which is information provided by the developer. The RTP is 94% for bets below £2, 96% for bets above £2, and Big Bet spins have a 97.75% RTP.
