Sadly not a slot about Elvis Presley, The King in question here is the mighty lion, king of the big beasts. Created by iSoftBet, it’s a 5 reel, 25 payline slot that comes with free spins with synced reels and a spin the wheel bonus which offers payouts of up to 4,000 times your stake. Play on all devices from between 25p and £25 per spin.

The design in The King is quite simple – the reels are set against a grassland backdrop. Joining the A to J playing cards are photo-style symbols of 5 wild animals. You’ll see a zebra, a yak, a rhino and an elephant which offers awards of up to 16 times your stake per payline.

The lion is the game’s wild – it spins in stacked formation and can hit on all 5 reels. Land 3, 4 or 5 wilds on a payline and you’ll receive 2, 10 or 20 times your stake. The lion substitutes for everything apart from the paw print scatter and cash wheel bonus symbols. There are 2 classic features on offer on The King.

King Spins feature – land the paw print scatter on reels 1, 3 and 5 on the same spin to trigger this round. You’ll then receive 8 free spins. On any free spin, between 2 and 5 reels can sync so that they show the same matching symbols.

Cash Wheel Bonus feature – you’ll need to land 5 or more Cash Wheel symbols on the same spin to trigger this round. The Cash Wheel symbols are held and respins continue as long as more Cash Wheel symbols land. After a respin where no more Cash Wheel symbols arrive, you’ll spin the wheel:

  • 6-10 Cash Wheel symbols and you’ll spin the Super Cash Wheel
  • 11-14 Cash Wheel symbols and you’ll spin the Mega Cash Wheel
  • 15 Cash Wheel symbols and you’ll spin the Epic Cash Wheel

The prize awarded depends on where the pointer lands. If you’re lucky enough to trigger the Epic Cash Wheel, you’ll spin the wheel that offers a massive 4,000 times stake prize.

This slot safari is a pretty simple one. The visuals are quite brash and there’s a bouncy, African-style soundtrack playing while you spin. The features are equally basic and don’t offer anything really fresh. Both the free spins and wheel features can deliver some decent action though and you can expect to land both at regular intervals.

You’d be hard pressed to describe The King as the king of slots. It’s a perfectly playable game though and certainly worth a spin if you enjoy the wild safari theme. If you like lions, White King by Playtech and Hot Safari by Pragmatic Play are worth roaring into.
