Released in 2018 by iSoftBet, Jumbo Stampede Slot is a safari-themed slot with a grassy African savannah background and a soundtrack that’s heavy on the drums. Featuring various wild animals on the reels, it plays on a slightly unusual 6×4 structure, with no standard Paylines but up to a massive 4,096 ways of winning.
How to play
Play away from 0.20 to 20 per go. Win by matching icons on neighbouring reels, kicking off from the one that’s furthest left. You’ll need at least three similar symbols for a hit, other than for Jumbo symbols, as explained below.
The standard, lower-paying A through 9 symbols join five more rewarding animal symbols on the reels. In order of value, these are the antelope, zebra, leopard and rhino, all topped by the elephant or Jumbo symbol, the ruler of the plains!
The Jumbo pays out at 150 coins for five of this symbol and will give you winning combos even on non-neighbouring reels.
As you’d expect, Jumbo Stampede Slot is playable on your device of choice, mobile or otherwise.
Jumbo Stampede Slot Special Features
The Wild is a sunrise icon, and it only shows up on Reels 2 through 5. As ever, it replaces all other emblems save the Scatter, the elephant coin.
The Wild can rock up with multipliers worth 2x or 3x stake, and, like the Jumbo icons, can give you a hit even if it doesn’t end up on adjacent reels.
Scoop three, four, five or six Scatters wherever you like on the reels to bank eight, 15, 20 or a tidy 50 free spins respectively. Retrigger the round with just a couple of Scatters, or more of course, and win up to 50 free goes again, depending on the number of activating Scatters.
And that’s pretty much it as far as bonus rounds in Jumbo Stampede Slot are concerned. It’s a good round though, even though you may find it takes a bit of time to kick in – and you could win up to 100 free whirls in all.
There may not be a progressive jackpot in Jumbo Stampede Slot, but you can win up to 3,337x stake on each spin. You should find variance nudges into the higher end of medium.
Return to Player
RTP or Return to Player is a tad on the low side here, at 95.94%, although it’s not disastrous.
You should have a lot of fun with Jumbo Stampede Slot; it’s certainly engaging, and its top-notch visuals and sound effects add to the atmosphere and will help transport you to an idyllic African setting.
Equally, it’s not without winning potential, and while it’s a fairly straightforward offering, you should find that it offers enough excitement to keep things interesting.
One or two reviewers have remarked that this game could do with a bit more action, and it’s true it’s not the only slot out there with an African safari theme. But give it a go and see if it’s a game that works for you. And then don’t forget to let us know what you thought!
