Novomatic draws inspiration for this slot from the beautiful wildlife of Africa bringing you African beasts and wild animals like the lions and zebras.
This slot takes you deep into the heart of Africa where nature is at its best. There, you will find a 5-reel, 4-row setup which will bring you wins of up to 500x the stake.
The game background seems to be set in an African safari though the grassland look has been enhanced to give some beauty to the slot. Instead of bright blue skies, you get purple and dark clouds against a sunset scene. The reels hang above the ground and there, you can take spins and match symbols on any of its 50 Paylines.
How to play
Stakes on the slot can be placed with as low as 0.50 credits up to as high as 50 credits which easily fits into all budget types. The reels are decorated with playing cards from 9 through A which is standard for most slots. High-value symbols are represented by the wild animals of Africa.
In African Stampede Slot, you will find rhinoceros, gazelle, Cape buffalo, zebra, and elephants. You need at least three symbols on the reels to trigger a win though higher-value symbols can form wins with two matched on an active Payline. The elephant is the most lucrative symbol and pays at most 2x the stake for matching 5 in a combination.
African Stampede Slot Special Features
The lion symbol is the game’s wild and will only appear on reels 2, 3, 4, and 5. When landed, it will replace other game symbols bar the bonus scatter to help form winning combos.
African Stampede Slot Bonus Features
As usual, the scatter symbols will bring you luck in the form of free spins. Collect three on the reels and you will be awarded 12 free spins. During the free spins feature, you will also get sticky wilds. The sticky wilds will substitute for any other game symbol bar the scatter and will remain stuck on the position landed.
Novomatic once again introduces the gamble mechanic in African Stampede Slot that allows you to double your wins with a guess. All you have to do is guess whether the colour of the next card in the sequence will be red or black. If your guess is correct, your win will be doubled.
This slot offers a win chance of up to 500x the stake but you won’t get a jackpot prize along with that offer.
Return to Player (RTP)
African Stampede Slot offers a disappointing RTP ratio of 95.15% though its medium volatility means wins should be fairly easy to trigger.
Novomatic does well with this African safari theme making a few additions to the original design that makes it more impressive to look at. However, the main attractions stop there as the game doesn’t really do much other than offer a couple of free spins and sticky wilds. Nonetheless, you do get a max pay of up to 500x the stake.
