African Quest Slot Review (Microgaming)

African Quest SlotMicrogaming is a leader when it comes to developing reputable games. African Quest is their latest release and from the look of things, it seems like a slot game with a lot of exciting features.

Below, we take a look at this slot and tell you what to expect with it:

To begin with, African Quest comes with a 5x4 layout. The slot has a total of 1024 ways to win. With such a big number, you are in a position to create a number of winning combos in just one game round.

When you add the multipliers to it, they boost your winnings chances to as high as 5,600xs.  

In addition to the free spins and multipliers (can reach 64 xs when combined) that African Quest has, there are also paid respins, stacked lions, as well as scatters.

Microgaming has given an RTP of 96.52% to this game.

Betting and Prizes

To place a wager, you need as little as $0.10 per single spin. The highest amount that you can use per round is $15, which is extremely low coming from a top-notch developer like Microgaming. 

However given the top prizes that African Quest offers, you can still make a considerable profit since the highest win potential is 5,600x or $84,000.

The slot has very high volatility, and although it can still deliver great rewards, it’s a lot riskier to play.

African Quest Slot Features

I’m particularly impressed by Microgaming’s decision to incorporate the Paid Respin which is quite a unique feature. Although it is not a new concept in the gaming industry, it works perfectly well in assisting you to respin the reel of your choice. This is in exchange for a price.

The price you pay for the respin depends entirely on the possible outcome as a result of the spin. Given that you are working towards getting the slot’s 5th symbol, it might be a little pricier.  

The stacked symbols come in the form of lions and when they land, you will be awarded the highest value possible.

African Quest has wilds as well and this is actually what I used to form some winning combinations. However, for this to happen, you will need to land them anywhere in the middle three columns. You can also use them to substitute the regular symbols but not the scatter.

The most exciting area is the free spins and if you manage to land at least 3 Africa Map scatters on the slot’s available reels, you can win a prize of u to 20 xs. This is in addition to a free spins feature.

For the multipliers, they vary but stat off at 4x multipliers to get 15 free spins.

Theme & Design

If you love taking safaris, then Microgaming has brought that feeling straight to your home with the African Quest. The slot has a safari theme with a mix of symbols commonly used in slots with that theme.

High-value symbols include Lions, Elephants, Zebra, and African Maps, rhinos, giraffes and African Trees.  For the low-value symbols, expect the usual boring Royals.


Personally, I’m a fan of Microgaming’s games and African Quest is a very exciting and fun game to play. However, you need to be wary of the slot’s high volatility, and especially if you are not used to these types of slots.
