African Stampede Slot Review (Novomatic)
Africa Stampede takes you on a wild trip to Africa. This development by Novomatic is set on 5 reels with a total of 50 pay lines.
All the fun for this slot seems to be located in the feature’s round and this is where you can get a taste of all the fun from this slot.
Slot Game Features
The slot comes with a number of features that include free spins. Once you trigger the free spins, you will get to enjoy a dozen of free spins.
Some of the top-paying symbols include the elephant that appears in a stacked form.
I love the fact that I was able to play this wild adventure on my mobile phone without the need to download any gaming software.
The minimum that I could spend per spin was 50p but you can go to as high as £100 per spin.
In the recent past, we have seen a major improvement in graphics on most new releases from Novomatic. African Stampede is a good example and I must admit that I was really impressed by the entire graphic work on this slot. Both the sound and the design complement each other
The African plains in the background set the mood for the “Safari”. There are also a few animals common in the African savannah like the antelope, a buffalo, a zebra, a rhino, and an elephant (stacked symbol) in addition to the A to 9 royals.
The slot also comes with a wild and the king of the jungle who happens to be the lion (sticky symbol). The Lion can appear on any part of the slot but not on reel 1.
Free Spins with African Stampede
Surprisingly, African Stampede has just 1 feature which seems to carry a lot of potentials. This is the Free Games feature which is triggered when you land the bonus symbol on the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd reels simultaneously. This awards you 2 times your total bet in addition to the 12 free spins that come with this feature.
Most slot games on the Novomatic catalogue are very straightforward and this also happens to be the case with African Stampede.
The best place to get a lot of fun and the good payout is in the Free Games feature. With this feature, you will get the opportunity to work with stacked high-value symbols as well as sticky wilds which both create a better winning combination.
On the part of the variance, I can confidently say that this slot falls in the medium range volatility.
I was a little disappointed to learn that the maximum I can win with African Stampede is 250 times stake, and this is after filling up all the reels with elephants and/or wilds!
The game is a far cry from another recent release by WMS (Raging Rhino Megaways) that offers a whopping 12,500 times stake on each free spin! Overall, the slot is only enjoyable on the graphics part and not the payout.
