Williams Interactive Games brings you King of Africa online slot. This game was originally a slot cabinet exclusive, but WMS has wisely brought it to the online market. They made a big graphical change to make the game look more cartoony and they also included the excellent Hot Hot Penny feature to boost your wins as well as your chances of winning free spins.
King of Africa slot has a quite simple 20 payline setup with a single bonus feature. The screen consists of 5 reels, but you get big cash prizes and a wager limit of 150. Your wagers also include a 10 coin wager that activates Hot Hot Penny.
The Giraffe Extended Wild Symbol
The tree at dusk is the scatter symbol and will trigger the free spins feature. Three scatter symbols will give you 8 free spins at first, but if the Hot Hot Penny feature is active you can win even more.
During the King of Africa free spin feature, the slot reels will also feature an expanded giraffe wild symbol on each free spins on a random reel.
The Scatter And Wild Symbols
The free spins triggering scatter symbol also offers some of the biggest pay outs in the game, and you won’t even need to land the symbols on a pay line. Two scatter symbols already offer a prize of 40x your line wager.
Three scatters are worth 100x, 4 scatter symbols are worth 400x but 5 scatters will pay out an enormous 2500x jackpot. Not to mention these prizes accompany the free spins round. It will definitely make you feel like the King of Africa.
The King of Africa game logo functions as a substituting wild symbol. This symbol can replace any standard symbol in a winning combination. It doesn’t substitute as a scatter though.
If the wild doesn’t appear by itself and instead shows up as lined up with other wilds on a pay line, you can expect some more big prizes. Two wilds will already award a 15x prize, but 5 wilds are really what you are after. They will award the game’s biggest jackpot pay out of 3000x. A lion sized payout indeed similar to that of online bingo games in Australia.
Meet Hot Hot Penny
If you make an extra wager of 10 coins on each spin, King of Africa will activate the Hot Hot Penny feature, a flame haired girl who will increase your payouts as well as initiate re-spins whenever you land two feature symbols on the reels.
This will potentially land more scatter symbols on the reels and award you free spins. Penny will also appear before your free spins starts and allow you to take part in the pick-me game. Each pick you make will increase your free spins total by up to 30 per pick.
The Reel Symbol Payouts
The lion symbol in King of Africa online slot is the only symbol, other than the wild and scatter symbol that registers a winning combination on only 2 matching symbols. He will also offer players a 1000x jackpot prize.
The rest of the reel symbols also feature above average jackpot prizes and they consist of all the denizens of the African plains. In descending order of value, they are a leopard, an elephant, a Zebra, and an Impala. There are also lower value symbols featuring artefacts of indigenous tribes.
