The African grassland savannah forms the backdrop to the action here. You’ll see trees, dwellings, mountains and animals in the background. The reels are set within a pair of carved totems. There you’ll find carved A to 9 royal values alongside leopards, cattle, rhinos and elephants. The best symbol is the lion which pays up to 7.5 times your stake if you land 2 5 on adjacent reels. There’s also a wild. The game comes with 2 extras.

Animals Go Wild feature - this can trigger at random on any spin. 1 of the animal symbols is chosen at random. All instances of this symbol on the reels become wild and a new payout calculation is made. These wilds all award the same amounts as the top-paying lion symbol.

Golden Lion Free Spins Bonus feature - land the paw print scatter on reels 1, 3 and 5 on the same spin to trigger this round. If you land 2 scatters, you’ll be awarded a r-spin and a second shot at hitting the all-important third. Once in, you’ll be awarded 10 free spins.

The wilds here gain some extra properties. Whenever they form part of a winning combination, the payout gets a 2x multiplier boost and is doubled.  Look out too for the golden lion symbol that appears on reel 5. Whenever this hits, it fills a meter above the reels. This can award extra free spins, multipliers to your aggregate win or trigger the Animal Goes Wild feature.

This take on the classic safari-themed slot is an enjoyable one. The visuals are nicely done and the gentle soundtrack matches the theme rather well.  The gameplay is pretty solid too. The animal wilds can deliver some good action in the base game and the free spins round offers something extra thanks to the multipliers and other goodies.

If you like the safari theme, then Africa Goes Wild is a perfectly entertaining and very playable title. Other similar themed slots I recommend include iSoftBet’s The King and Novomatic’s African Simba.
