Ainsworth has once again invited players to venture into the virtual jungle, this time in King Chameleon. It’s a 5 reel, 100 payline slot that comes with stacked wilds and a free spins feature with added wilds where you can boost your win with a multiplier of up to 5x. Enter the rainforest from between £1 and £75 per spin.
Flanked by carved tribal totems and set against a forest backdrop, the reels in King Chameleon include a selection of brightly coloured jungle creatures. Look out for butterflies, tortoises, frogs, lemurs and birds – land 5 of the latter 2 in a 5 symbol combo and you’ll receive a payout worth 300 times your line bet.
The chameleon can only land on reels 3, 4 or 5 in the base game – it can appear as a stacked symbol to fill an entire reel though and in the process substitute for every other symbol apart from the scatter.
The giant tree is that scatter – get 3 or more of this and you’ll activate King Chameleon’s only feature, the Free Games feature. Here you’ll be awarded 8 free spins. Look out for the gold chameleon symbol once the feature starts as this is an extra wild that is added to reel 3.
When it lands, it won’t only substitutes for other symbols – it will also be locked in place and offer a multiplier. This starts at 1x then goes up by 1 on each spin up to a maximum of 5x. If you have spins left when it reaches 5x, the multiplier will remain at that figure.
It’s possible to get more than 1 gold chameleon on reel 3 at the same time, offering even more chances to secure a decent payout. Finally, the tree scatter only appears on the first 2 reels. Land one on both though and you’ll receive an extra 5 free spins.
King Chameleon is a typical Ainsworth slot – it’s fast paced, volatile and offers the best chances of securing a big win via a souped up free spins feature where multipliers can get the coins flowing quickly. The variance here is on the high side – don’t expect to trigger the free spins too often though.
There’s nothing earth-changing on offer in this jungle adventure as it’s typically solid fare from Ainsworth. If you like the rainforest theme and the high volatility, the King Chameleon is worth a spin or two. You should also try Rainforest Dream from WMS which is superb.
