Spinning on the Savanna
When you’re ready to get moving you’ll need to start spinning the five reels in front of you which feature the most beautiful creatures that Africa has to offer. You won’t find any conventional paylines in this game as the developer has chosen to create the more contemporary style of 1024 ways to win. This option is becoming increasingly common as both players and developers recognise the popularity of the easier play.
You can forget about having to memorise difficult payline patterns with this type of slot as all you have to do is look out for the same symbols on adjacent reels, moving from left to right. You’ll still need to decide how much to bet but you won’t be setting up a coin value per line. Instead you’ll pick an overall bet which in this game ranges from the total min bet of 0.40 up to the max bet of 40.00.
Beast of a Bonus
Although every slot starts out the same way with lining up symbols on the reels, the ones that really stand out are those which offer different features to add more interest, as well as chances to win. Savanna King isn’t blessed with lots of bonuses or extras, but there are some twists which can increase the win rate. On the base game, wilds can be found; these stand in for other symbols and make it easier to line up a winning combination.
You’ll also spot scatters too and if you manage to land three or more in any position you’ll rack up a scatter win. Unlike other symbols these don’t need to be along active paylines in order to count. Depending on whether you land 3, 4 or 5 scatters you’ll receive 8, 15 or 20 free spins which will take place straight away. If you manage to spin any wilds during this feature, they’ll instantly change into a multiplier of between x2 and x4. If you get more than one wild, they will be multiplied together, giving an even bigger payout. Using this technique it’s possible to rack up a multiplier of up to x64 (4x4x4).
Take a Safari
Savanna King ticks so many boxes for different themes but the one that really stands out the most is the African overtures. This is a very popular genre in the world of slots and there are lots of other titles which are also available. Although the lion is the central character in many of these games, there are other creatures who are more than worthy of hogging the limelight too.
In Thunderhorn by Bally, you’ll find the heavyweight rhino has muscled its way in, starring in a visually stunning game which also is set up on the 1024 ways to win basis. But if it’s the king of the jungle that you’re the biggest fan of, Silver Lion from Lightning Box offers a magnificent play which is at least a little different with a jackpot of up to x800 waiting to be won.
Savanna for Starters
Savanna King from Genesis is a leader among African themed games with its relaxed style of play and richly coloured graphics. There’s not much in the way of bonuses and although there’s a range of betting options, the high rollers may find this a little on the low side at just 40.00. Therefore although this game can be played by anyone, beginner and intermediate players are likely to be the most attracted to it.
