Not Just Black and White
Those of you who have spent time playing fruit machines, whether it be in the local pub, club or in the local amusement arcade then this will be ideal for you. It certainly brings back lots of memories of when games depended on each spin of the reels and there wasn’t an emphasis on trying to trigger free spins or other forms of bonus games.
If there’s one thing that can be said about this game, it’s that ‘Zany Zebra’ is rather colourful. That’s definitely the case with the logo for the game which is situated in the bottom left-hand corner of the screen underneath the reels. The zebra is wearing sunglasses and looks as it spends most of its life at a party.
This game has three reels and three rows of symbols but there are a total of five pay-lines. Before each spin of the reels you have a couple of important decisions to make. Firstly, you must decide your coin stake, this can be between €0.25 and €5.00. The decision on how many pay-lines to activate is the next decision. This is important when it comes to how much you will win if managing to get three of the zany zebras on a pay-line. That’s the top prize and if all five pay-lines are activated that can win you 6000x your coin stake. If only activating one pay-line and those zebras come along your win will be 1000x, if it’s on the second pay-line the win is 2000x, 3000x on the third and 4000x on the fourth. So, as you can see there’s a real incentive in activating all five pay-lines but only do that if you can afford it otherwise it’s you who’s being a little bit zany not the zebra.
Zany and Wild
The symbols in this game are pretty basic but that’s to be expected in a game such as this. There are the single, double and triple bars, the bell, white 7’s and the zany zebra. If you can get three bars of any kind on an activated pay-line, then that wins you 5x your coin stake. Three double bars will see you winning 40x your coin stake, three bells land you 200x and three white 7’s will reward you with a 300x win.
I wonder what a zany zebra does. Well it’s not just zany but this one is also wild. That means it is able to substitute for other symbols in the game and that can help create some more winning combinations for you to keep that account balance ticking over.
There isn’t a bonus game in this slot so if you’re looking for some free spins then you’ll have to look elsewhere. Don’t let that put you off playing the game though as there are some very good prizes to be won playing ‘Zany Zebra.’
It’s an easy game to operate, no problems at all setting your coin stake. Then as far as it goes for activating pay-lines, keep pressing ‘Bet One’ if you’re intent on setting between one and four pay-lines or save some time and press ‘Bet Max’ to activate all five and give yourself a chance of winning the top prize. It’s also possible to set some automated spins.
I’m still not sure about why this zebra is zany but you’ll certainly get some enjoyment out of playing this game. The theme is strange and there’s only the zebra symbol that has anything to do with it. There are some good wins to be had but don’t keep activating all the pay-lines if you can’t afford it. It’s worth a play though.
