Caesars Palace, the renowned casino operator, recently made an exciting announcement on its X social media platform: the progressive mega jackpot for the popular slot game Siberian Storm has now soared to an impressive $509,000 in its Michigan lobby. This thrilling development has captured the attention of both local gamblers in the MI scene and slot enthusiasts from outside the state alike.

Siberian Storm, a MultiWay Xtra slot developed by the well-known software giant IGT, is celebrated for its unique 3x4x5x4x3 layout, offering players an incredible 720 winning ways. The slot also features a striking Siberian white tiger as its main protagonist, along with visuals that boast crisp graphics and an enchanting soundtrack that enhances the full gaming experience.

Siberian Storm is available in land-based and online casinos across Michigan, ensuring that a wide range of players can try their luck at winning the massive jackpot.

How can you win the massive jackpot at Siberian Storm?

Players have two chances to win the progressive mega jackpot on Siberian Storm. The first approach involves landing five "MegaJackpots Scatters" someplace on the reels, which includes the free spins round. If, however, the jackpot is not triggered in a single spin, the game offers an automatic "Second Chance" determination, providing another occasion to hit the jackpot. And there's more: the higher the bet, the greater the chance of winning, adding an extra layer of excitement to the game. Despite its relatively low RTP of 93%, the slot's medium volatility keeps players coming back for more.

Caesars all set to launch a new app in 2024

Meanwhile, Caesars Entertainment, which operates two online casinos in MI, has ambitious plans for the future. While its OG platform is integrated into Caesars Sportsbook & Casino, in 2023, the company launched a separate app called Caesars Palace Online Casino.
