Pop into most major gambling websites, and you will surely find a combination of both African wildlife-themed slots, and wildlife stampede-themed games. Novomatic has clearly noticed this and decided to take it on board with their latest release. Known as African Stampede, the slot is an amalgamation of both themes.
This colourful and creative slot machine debuted at online casinos in November and features a slightly different look from many other Novomatic slot games. A word of warning to players, though; African Stampede is not the cheapest game out there.
Awesome African Imagery
Novomatic’s African Stampede features a total of 50 paylines spread over 5 reels. With that in mind, players won’t be surprised to see a minimum stake of 0.50 per spin in play. At the opposite end of the slot’s wagering range, maximum bets are capped at 100.00 a turn. Prizes, while easier to land, aren’t worth an overly extensive amount at just 100x a bet.
To aid players in winning, symbols can appear stacked on the reels of this game’s bonus. Lion symbols also assist players, as they can substitute for all icons barring scatters. Wilds cannot appear on the first reel but can show up on the others.
Fab and Furry Free Spins
Scatter symbols are required if players want to trigger the African Stampede slot’s free spin round. These appear as sunset symbols, and they can only spring up on the first, second and third reels. Once they have shown up on all three simultaneously, players will win double their stake, and bag a total of 12 free spins.
As the round commences, any wild symbol which pops up on the screen will remain frozen in place for the entire duration of the free spin round. In short, they are sticky wilds. It is also worth noting that this is where the stacked symbols come into play. Elephant icons (the best paying-ones in the game) can appear stacked to aid your efforts in landing a win.
