Take a virtual safari across the savannah with Legends of Africa Slot, a video slot from adventure game specialist 2 By 2 Gaming.
It’s a five-reeler with a generous 30 Paylines across an unconventional reel set-up of 2x3x5x3x2. (Incidentally, it’s not to be confused with Microgaming’s African Legends.)
The action takes place at dawn, as the sun rises on a misty African landscape. And it’s your mission to roam across it and gather legendary treasures.
How to play
Spin away from 0.30 all the way up a high-rolling 120 a go. Wins pay from left to right, apart from the Scatter, which shells out in any direction.
Symbols on the reels incorporate the usual less rewarding playing-card values, plus a line-up of the sort of beasts you’d expect to see on an African safari.
These include a zebra, leopard and springbok alongside the lion icon, in silhouette. Your highest payer is the female character – land five of her off one go to enjoy a tidy 500-coin payday.
As you play, birds fly across the red sky while zebra and rhino also travel across your screen in the distance.
Legends of Africa Slot special features
A village scene serves as your Wild, and while it won’t pay out on its own, it will do the usual Wild thing of substituting for all other emblems save the Scatter when it appears on the central three reels. This game’s Scatter is a mask.
Mask Picking bonus feature
As with most slots, this free spins-based round is where most of the excitement is to be found. Land the mask Scatter on the central trio of reels off a single spin to activate this perk. You’ll be given a choice of three options, as follows:
- 10 free spins; all payouts with a 3x multiplier
- 12 free spins; guaranteed stacked symbol appears on Reel 1
- 15 free spins; Wilds are sprinkled
With all three options, mystery positions come into play meaning icons can be converted to enhance winning opportunities.
Any Way Blast feature
This can also spice up your base game.
Land any fully stacked icons on Reels 1 and 5 and the payout format alters.
Rather than the previous 30 Paylines, payouts are made via a win all-ways set-up. This potentially gives you the opportunity to pocket up to 144x stake.
Sadly, you won’t find a progressive jackpot here. But highest win per line is a massive 480,000 coins.
Return to Player (RTP)
RTP or Return to Player in Legends of Africa Slot is generous at 96.45%. Total hit frequency is around one in three. Equally, you should be aware that this slot is a highly volatile one to play.
You should appreciate the gorgeous design of this game, and its enjoyable theme, while a great soundtrack accompanies the brilliant visuals to complete the ambience. (Think drumbeats and animal calls.)
So the operator has (excuse the pun) seriously upped its game with Legends of Africa Slot. And while it may not rock your world to its foundations, it should certainly while away a happy hour or two.
Give it a whirl and see for yourself. Let us know whether or not it’s a game that worked for you.
