Go wild and do it like they do it on the Discovery Channel with the Big 5 Safari game from Nektan.
This 5-reel video slot game is themed around a safari and all it takes is a quick spin of the jeep’s wheel to set you on your way. Just like a trip to the Serengeti, you'll be on the hunt to find the big five game animals of lion, elephant, buffalo, leopard and rhino.
These magnificent specimens are dubbed the big five because they're the hardest beasts to hunt on foot, but luckily this game has 20 paylines so there are plenty of combinations that will see you catch your prize. Better yet, you don’t even need a gun license to do it!
There's also a bonus game thrown in to add even more excitement; match three bonus symbols and you'll get the chance to play.
Under the passing clouds you'll find yourself out on a dusty plain, with the aforementioned animals to keep you company. There are also the odd zebra and gazelle that represent wild cards, that's if you're quick enough to catch them, of course. The graphics are pretty simple, with static symbols to cycle through, however there are a few animations that come in to play when you match a line.
There's also soundtrack featuring some tribal drums, birds tweeting and the roar of an engine when you spin the wheel to play. Combine that with the cheerfully bright colour scheme and it might not transport you to Africa, but the theme certainly adds a bit of fun and excitement to the game. Those eye-catching, aggressive-looking animals give it the feel of a classic slot machine too.
Woah there tiger, you need to learn the rules before you go out on your hunt, luckily this game is pretty easy to pick up. First you need to decide the size of your bet, click on 'Stake ∓ Lines' then drag to select your stake. Increasing your bet gives you a byou need to decietter chance of taking home more winnings, and also of losing more too of course.
Once you're happy with your gamble click the flashing 'Spin' button, which can be found on the back wheel of your safari jeep. If you're lucky enough to match between three and five symbols along the active pay lines then you'll pick up some credits to add to your balance.
There are nine main symbols you can find once you're out on safari, the big five game animals and letters J, Q , K and A. The alphabetical characters represent the lowest values, then come our more highly prized four legged friends. They increase in value from buffalo through elephant, rhino, lion and finally leopard.
Match yourself three, four or five letters and you could see yourself picking up between x10 and x 150 multipliers. Unsurprisingly though the big wins come from the big game, snare yourself 5 leopards and you could land a x2000 multiplier.
There are a couple more surprises you could find on your safari that might just come in handy. As you might expect the wild symbol can represent any of the other items in the game, this card comes in the form of a rather helpful zebra, so if you're lucky enough to spot him he could help you bag that jackpot.
For an even better chance pick up the gazelle sticky wild card. As this should imply, it basically means wilds that stick around for more than one spin. Although just like the gazelle itself in real life, these babies move fast on this open terrain.
Another icon you'll see is 'Spins', which is labelled with a compass image. If you manage to score three or more of those on a payline then the moon will rise and darkness will descend as you spin for free and some potential big wins.
Finally there's also a bonus game should you manage to match three or more bonus symbols, keep your eye out for the rather fetching tiger print jeep to have the chance to play.
This 5-reel slot machine captures all the excitement of a big game hunt with its fun safari style animations and soundtrack.
With wild cards and even wilder animals, not to mention a bonus game thrown in, there's more than enough to keep you entertained as you track down that jackpot.
