Tigers have always been a symbol of mysterious power, and their claws often associated with virulence, war, and dark magic. Tiger’s Claw takes players on a voyage of magic and fantasy, high in the mountaintops of an ancient civilization.
The background music puts players ever-so-slightly on edge, but winning combinations are accompanied by a light, jingling music, which puts you back at ease. While the tempo of the game is a bit slower than we’d like, the graphics are superb, and the regularity of wins is very impressive.
With its 3-4-5-4-3 layout, and a whopping 720 ways to win, there’s a lot to like about Tiger’s Claw. Let’s check it out!
Gameplay and Layout
Visually, Tiger’s Claw impresses from the off. The reels are set above a huge, cavernous plain, with towering mountains to either side. There’s a rough human camp in the distance, and a thin fog rolling across the screen – you can even spot occasional shooting stars darting across the sky. The symbols on the reels are stunning, proper animations with concise attention to detail.
Beneath the reels, you’ll find all your buttons for varying the bet, starting autoplay, and accessing settings. Even these basic features are embedded in an intricate weave in the shape of a tiger’s eyes – beautiful!
It’s a medium variance game, with an average RTP of 96%. After a period of testing, we think these numbers are pretty bang on: we won pretty often, and more often than not for a good amount of cash. Able to wager up to $250 per spin, Tiger’s Claw is well-suited to the high rolling player.
With regular wins and impressive animation – as well as the opportunity to “double up” on every spin, by correctly predicting the flip of a coin – there’s only one complaint we have about the base game: it’s so slow. The buttons, reels, animation, payout counter – it all feels like it’s working at 50% of what it should. It’s not a deal breaker, but it is frustrating!
By landing the bonus symbol (a white wolf paw gripping an electric crystal ball) on every single reel at once, players activate the free spins round, with 5 spins awarded to the player. However, additional batches of 5 spins can be retriggered during this round by again landing a bonus symbol on every reel.
The upper limit for a single free games round is 240 free spins, so you could be buying a new house after a single $250 spin, if your luck is in!
BetSoft pushes the boat out on this one, creating a game that’s on-par, in terms of visual quality, with the likes of Netent and Yggdrasil. The slow gameplay aside, Tiger’s Claw is a fantastic product: great payouts, good bonus features, and incredible graphics.
