Big Game Online Slots

The term “Big Game” traditionally conjures up images of the Big 5, a majestic group of animals consisting of the Lion, the Leopard, the Elephant, the Rhino and the Buffalo.  These are the icons of the animal kingdom, and are traditionally found on the plains and hills and valleys of African soil.  It is interesting to note that the term Big 5 was originally in reference to the slightly more morbid danger factor involved in hunting these animals, and not so much the size of the animal.

Notwithstanding the fact that the animals making up the Big 5 certainly are all that they are described to be, they are not the only creatures of absolute beauty roaming our planet.  Who can resist the quirky charm of the Meerkat, or the cocky confidence of Africa’s biggest bird, the Ostrich?  The Animal Kingdom is a diverse and colourful empire, comprising of wonderful animal souls of all shapes and sizes.

Big Game pays homage to the diversity of life on earth.  The game is an online video slot, created by Saucify.  Big Game features a Free Spins Bonus Round, and is played on 5 reels and 25 paylines.  The paylines are not fixed, and the game can be played for free or for real money.

Slot Symbols

Colourful animal characters roam the game’s 5 reels – Lions, Elephants, Rhinos, Hippos, Leopards, Buffalo, Giraffe, the list goes on.  There are no playing card symbols, which makes for a refreshing change.  Instead, the smaller animals represent the lower value paying symbols.

Larger animals offer more lucrative payouts – 5 Rhinos on an active payline will add 3 000 credits to the player’s kitty and 5 Hippos will increase a positive balance by 1 000 credits.  The Leopards race in at 150 credits for 4, and 800 credits for 5.  The Buffalo, Giraffe and Zebra symbols vary from 200 to 330 credits for a top combination.  The Ostrich, Hyena, Monkey and Meerkat are responsible for more conservative winnings, with winnings ranging from 3 to 150 credits.

Big Game Special Symbols

Big Game features a scatter and a wild symbol.  The scatter is the Elephant symbol, and the wild symbol is represented by the King of the Jungle, the Lion.

The Lion will substitute for any standard symbol – all except for the scatter symbol.  Any combinations containing a wild will yield winnings that are doubled up.

Big Game Free Spins Bonus Round

The key to unlocking the game’s bonus round, is the Elephant scatter symbol.  3 or more scatter symbols anywhere on the game’s 5 reels will usher in the Free Spins Bonus Round.

3 Elephant scatters will activate 10 free spins, 4 will activate 15 and 5 scatter symbols anywhere on the reels will trigger 20 free spins rounds.

Best of all is that all winnings gathered during the Free Spins Bonus Round, are multiplied by 3.

The Elephant scatters do not only activate free spins, but are also awarded with multipliers.  A player’s total bet for online pokies Australia will be multiplied by x100, for 5 Elephants scattered on the game’s reels.
