African Legends is a new progressive jackpot slot created by the developers at Slingshot Studios in collaboration with Microgaming. Joining the ranks of progressive jackpots like Microgaming’s Mega Moolah, African Legends has a traditional African theme alongside a wow major jackpot that you’ll want to chase! Despite its similarities in theme and concept to other games, this brand-new online slot has a few bonus features to complement the gameplay and help it to stand out from the crowd. It’s great to see the guys at Slingshot Studios and Microgaming not just making a carbon copy of other slots but bringing in new twists to beloved games.
Betting starts at just 25p a spin, reaching a maximum of £25 for those mid-range players who want to get the biggest returns. This 5-reel game is full of bonus features including wild symbols, a multiplier trail, a free spins bonus, rolling reels and of course, the wow major jackpot. On top of all of this, there’s an incredible 243 ways to win with your maximum payout being £30,000 or 1,200x your stake, even without the jackpot feature!
Graphics and Theme
Set against a lifelike South African jungle background, it’s hard to deny that African Legends has stunning visuals. From the cloudy but sunsetting sky to the realistic baobab trees, murky rivers and red sun-kissed sandstones, you’ll feel as if you’re standing high on a rock in the middle of the African wilderness!
The symbols themselves fit the gameplay perfectly and are a collection of low and high paying rock-cut icons. You’ve got the standard pack of card suits at the low end, then colourful images of warthogs, hippopotamuses, rhinos, elephants and lions as your high-paying symbols. Naturally, as the lion is the king of the jungle, he pays out the most. You also have a wild symbol too, which is the most valuable symbol in the game.
There’s a superb soundtrack to this game that sounds movielike and truly captures the African vibe. You can hear the shaking of maracas, the banging of bongo drums and the soft chanting and singing of a tribe as you spin the reels. This classic ancestral theme tune adds to the immersive atmosphere well and evokes a winning spirit.
The progressive jackpot is the heart of this game. However, there are several other bonus features to keep you entertained, including:
The wild symbol in the game is represented by a golden face which can substitute for any other regular symbol and is also the most valuable out of all of them. Wilds can also land super-stacked on reel 3 to cover the entire reel!
Wild Blast feature
Up to 5 symbols can turn wild at random on any given spin during the base game. This significantly increases your chases of scoring a win and can turn a terrible spin into a massive win!
Rolling reels, otherwise known as cascading wins, trigger after every win and winning symbols disappear to make way for new ones from above. Rolling reels applies to both the base game and the bonus free spins game. They can also award multiple consecutive winning combos as the feature continues to work until there are no new winning combinations to be made. This feature also activates the win multiplier trail!
Progressive Multiplier Trail
Successive wins on a single spin increase the multiplier value. The first roll in a sequence awards a 2x multiplier while roll 2,3,4,5,6 or 7 and you will be awarded a multiplier of x3, x4,x5,x6,x8 and x10 respectively. In addition to this, four or more rolls award the free spins feature.
Free Spins feature
Free spins are awarded a set multiplier, and the exact reward depends on the number of rolls:
- Four rolls – 12 free spins and an x5 multiplier
- Five rolls – 15 free spins and an x6 multiplier
- Six rolls – 18 free spins and an x8 multiplier
- Seven rolls – 20 free spins and an x10 multiplier
The next roll grants you the wow major jackpot!
Wow major jackpot
The wow major jackpot starts at £50,000, and higher bets increase your chance of winning! Roll to trigger this feature, and eight consecutive rolls pay out the full wow major jackpot.
Game How to Play
Playing African Legends online slot is simple, and all you’ve got to do is wager your bet between 25p and £25 then hit spin, or set the handy auto-spin feature, to get going. You’ll need to land at least three matching symbols on a single line to score a win, and the action all takes place on a standard 5×3 reel grid, with 243 ways to win! As this game has medium volatility, you’ll get returns fairly often and be able to keep yourself afloat looking for that wanted progressive jackpot. Just remember, the higher your stake, the higher your chances of hitting the jackpot.
