The latest release from Leander Games is this slot, Africa Goes Wild, which tries to explore the wild side of this dark and mysterious continent. Looking at its wild creatures on the reels, and at savage local tribes outside them, the game appears to be trying to cover all its angles.
The game is playable on 5x4 reels and it sports a total of 1024 ways to win. Form the right combinations, and wins of 30,000 coins could be yours, the actual value reaching an eye-watering $300,000. You can expect for a good mix of features to be coming your way, including here wilds which have multipliers, free spins or the Animals Go Wild bonus.
Betting and Prizes
The game will use the equivalent of 40 bet lines, in order to get the 1024 ways to win activated. You get to pick the total wager for that round, and in the process you select how much each coin/line is worth. The total range of your bets will be from $0.40 to $400. The lines would get $0.01 to $10 each in that range.
Prize wise, you’re looking at a maximum reward of 30,000 coins out of this slot. Given the potential value of each coin, that’s a jackpot of up to $300,000 which you could get via an extremely lucky spin.
What’s really telling us how profitable a game can be is the amount that it ends up paying back to its players. Usually, a figure of 96% or more is considered good for a slot machine, and Leander Games decided to give Africa Goes Wild an RTP of 96.04%. As such, I’d say that this is a game that I would recommend to others as well.
Africa Goes Wild Slot Features
The first of the features which have been implemented in Africa Goes Wild is the actual wild symbol. In the base game, you get only the regular version of the wild, which has the game logo on it. This is transformed into a X2 Wild for the free spins, and at that point it gets a multiplier as well. Both for regular and free spins, the wild symbols will be made available only on the middle three columns. These are going to be substitutes, and they will contribute to various other combinations this way. In a game with ways to win, all they have to do is land on the right column, to be able to help out.
This slot benefits from the presence of a random feature as well, and it’s called Animals Go Wild. When it triggers, one of the animals is going to become wild. All symbols with that animal in them will be turned into wilds for that spin.
The Animal Stampede is a feature which triggers when only two scatter symbols are on the reels, which isn’t enough to get the free spins going. The resulting Stampede can bring you that third bonus icon.
The bonus symbols are the ones showing Golden Lions on them, and they’re also marked Free Spins. Three icons trigger 10 free spins, where wilds become capable of applying 2x multipliers.
Theme & Design
It’s a very well designed African wildlife theme, which shows us all sorts of safari creatures on the reels, while outside the game area you see a local village. It’s well designed, with realistic images of lions, elephants, rhinos, buffaloes and leopards for its major symbols. The lesser icons, the Royals, get tribal designs/colors.
Africa Goes Wild is a decent looking game, it has a high RTP and plenty of exciting features, so it’s definitely a game that I’d recommend.
