This slot is part of WMS G+ slot series and features 5 reels and 20 paylines. It comes with a wild icon, free spins, and the Hot Hot Penny Respins feature. The title gives everything away, as you will immediately ascertain that this slot is about the wild African jungle, which is not a new idea among slot creators, but King of Africa attempts to capture the true heart of the African jungle.
The slot machine symbols you'll encounter should you decide to try your luck on this casino game include Impalas, Zebras, Warrior Shields, Leopards, Lions, Elephants, Spears, Necklaces, African Trees, Tortoises, and the King of Africa slot logo. The soundtrack gives off a tribal vibe, and the game is somewhat reminiscent of Disney's The Lion King. Fans of this movie will relate to this slot. Behind the reels you will see the expansive savannah plain lands where the lions and leopards camouflage with the environment as they wait to pounce on their prey. The King of Africa Logo is wild and it substitutes all other symbols on the reels apart from the African Tree which is the scatter.
Three or more African Tree scatter symbols anywhere on the reels will trigger the Free Spins feature. You will be awarded with 8 free spins initially, but you still have a chance of getting more via the Pick a Box feature. In this bonus event, you will have a chance to select 3 to 5 tiles, depending on the number of scatters that triggered the feature. Each tile comes with a different prize, and you'll win between 1 and 30 additional free spins if the tiles reveal gold coins. Once in the Free Spins round an additional expanding wild is added to the reels, represented by the Giraffe icon, which will appear randomly on the reels with every spin.
Even if you miss out on the Free Spins bonus by getting only 2 scatters, the reels with the scatters will remain locked in places as the other reels respin 2 times. This feature is also active for all other regular symbols and with it you can activate the Free Sins or even unlock the standard jackpot.
While King of Africa only has 20 paylines, the bets use 30 coins each time that is 10 coins for the Feature Bet and 20 coins for thee paylines. The total bet amount runs from 0.30 all the way to 150 coins. The cash prizes go as high as 15,000 coins for having 5 wilds in a line.
Surprisingly, this slot isn't just another animal slot set in the jungle. It actually has some unexpected features and elements that will make an impression. King of Africa is not a run of the mill WMS game, but rather the result of efforts to make a better slot game.
