Cabin Fever video slot has a theme that I haven’t seen anywhere else, but it also offers a design that disappoints, so it doesn’t take advantage of the opportunity. It’s a Microgaming game, one that tells us about a family of bears that are getting cabin fever, being stuck inside a cabin because of the winter season. You see the five members of the family as they enjoy themselves or they are bored, drinking beer, speaking on the phone or playing. The features which you can rely on will give you a wild, a couple of multipliers, scatters and free spins. This game has 20 lines and a jackpot of $50,000.
Betting and Prizes
It’s the kind of game where you make all the decisions. You choose how many lines are active, from 1 to 20 being available, and also how many coins each one gets. Up to 10 coins may be used per line, with a value of up to $0.50. The $5 line bet can turn into a total bet of $100.
The game lets you know that you can win 5,000x back from it, which would mean up to $25,000 in the base game, or $50,000 during free spins, where the wins are doubled.
Cabin Fever Slot Features
The Frozen Wild will be the one to give away the big prize, which happens when it can form a combo of five icons on an active line. It pays 5,000x if that happens. It is also a wild that can double any prize to which it can contribute in its role as a substitute. Don’t expect it to replace scatters though.
A simple scatter will be used to trigger prizes, and a second one for the free spins. The one with the prizes has a Squirrel on it, and having 2 to 5 anywhere in the game will bring you a prize of 1x to 200x the wager.
The other scatter has the Sun, and it shows it as if it caught a cold. The Sun is the scatter that you need simultaneously on the reels 1 and 5, in order to activate a feature of 20 free spins. You get doubled wins during the spins, plus a chance to re-activate them. The biggest prize of this slot can be won during this feature.
Theme & Design
Cabin Fever slot has an interesting idea, of placing a family of bears in a cabin, where they’re stuck because of the cold weather. The actual design is not that fun though. The images are rudimentary, especially the ones with the bears. You see Papa Bear enjoying a bath with a beer mug in his hand, Mama Bear talking on the phone, while the kids are playing. The low paying icons get frozen fruits.
Cabin Fever doesn’t give too much if you look only at its features, but prize and feature wise it’s a better choice than it might seem at first.
