Cabin Fever Slots

Cabin-FeverCabin Fever is not exactly a positive thing, as it means that you’re getting crazy from being cooked up for too long in a cabin, typically in the middle of winter. This is exactly what this game tries to use as its theme, the winter setting along with the various wild bears that act as humans and are closed in some sort of cabin. Microgaming is the developer behind this title.

In Cabin Fever you get plenty of space to play on, 20 lines being used on 5 reels, so it’s not as fever inducing as the game’s title might suggest. It has a couple of scatter symbols, one giving you prizes, the other free spins with multipliers. A wild symbol completes the feature list, and it’s the one that gives you the $25,000 jackpot.

Features of Cabin Fever

You’re going to find it a fun game, and to this feeling you will notice that both wilds and scatters contribute, along with the free spins and multipliers.

The word WILD is written with frozen letters, and it’s one of the slot’s best symbols to get. The usual reasons for its importance are true in this game as well, the main one being that it gives you the slot’s best prizes. If you manage to land multiple wilds on the same win line, you can win up to 5,000x, which would be the jackpot.

However, the wild can be useful even with a single symbol, when it lands in a spot where another one would be needed, to form a combo. If that happens, the wild will substitute for it, and you get a payout that normally would be out of your reach. Not only that, but you get a multiplier as well, so the prize is worth twice as much.

The first scatter symbol (there are two), is the one with the Squirrel in it. The only role it has in this case is to be a trigger for prizes, multiplying the round’s total bet by 1x to 200x, depending on how many of these symbols are in place (2 to 5 needed).

Free Games Feature

Even the Sun is freezing in this game, that’s how cold it is outside, and this is exactly the image that the second scatter shows you. The Sun, present on both the first and the fifth reels in the same round, will activate the feature with 20 free spins and with double the value of the wins.

Betting options and jackpots

You can be a penny slot player and use coins of $0.01, or you can go high with your bet, and reach values of up to $100. The largest denomination is only $0.50, but each line gets up to 10 coins, with 200 of them being part of the maximum bet.

The wild’s presence in enough spots will get you a 5,000x payout, or up to 50,000 coins ($25,000 cash).

Design and symbols

It’s the kind of cute game that gets away with a lot of things because of its characters, even though when taken individually you’re not that impressed with the design. A family of bears is shown in a couple of symbols, and they’re getting crazy in the cabin, while the winter is in full effect outside. There is plenty of snow in the game, used on the logo’s letters, on the various fruits used as symbols and on the payline numbers.


Symbols: Wild Logo (wild, 5,000x), Squirrel (200x bet, scatter), Sun (scatter), Papa Bear (300x), Mama Bear (250x), Brother and Sister Bear (250x), Baby Bear (200x), Orange (150x), Melon (120x), Lime (100x), Plum (100x) and Cherries (60x).

Is It Worth Playing?

It’s not a bad game, the features certainly try their best to make the game inviting, plus the idea behind it is a new one, and that’s something that should be rewarded. Even the prizes are on the decent side.
