African Quest Slot Theme/Symbols
The African Quest slot looks exactly as you’d imagine from a game that takes you to the heart of Africa. With the savannah in the background, symbols include A, K, Q, J, 10 and 9 royals – you’ll also see zebras, giraffes, rhinos and elephants.
Then you have Kubwa who is the lion – he’s the most valuable symbol with 2, 3, 4 or 5 in combination giving you 0.5, 1.2, 2.5 or 7.5 times your stake. The lion can also appear in stacks of 2 or 3 symbols for bigger wins. This is known as the Stacked Lions feature.
The tree in the sunset is the wild symbol and appears only on the 3 middle reels – it replaces all symbols bar the scatters. Being a 1,024 ways to win slot, you form winnings by getting matching symbols on successive reels beginning from the leftmost reel (i.e. reel 1).
Paid Respins feature
African Quest is a Hyperspins slot – this means you can trigger the Paid Respins feature after any base game spin. You can choose to respin a reel as many times as you like in order to form a winning combination – the cost is shown prior to commencing the respin.
Free Spins feature
The African Quest slot focuses on the Free Spins feature which is played when you get 3 or more map of Africa scatter symbols in any position – 3, 4 or 5 will give you 2, 10 or 20 times your stake too. You then have a choice of 3 options with a different number of free spins and wild multipliers – the more scatters you trigger the feature with, the more free spins you’ll play with:
|Scatters||Feature 1||Feature 2||Feature 3|
|3 scatters||5 free spins with 3x-4x multipliers||8 free spins with 2x-3x mutlipliers||12 free spins with 1x-2x multipliers|
|4 scatters||10 free spins with 3x-4x multipliers||15 free spins with 2x-3x mutlipliers||25 free spins with 1x-2x multipliers|
|5 scatters||15 free spins with 3x-4x multipliers||20 free spins with 2x-3x mutlipliers||40 free spins with 1x-2x multipliers|
If you see 2 or more scatters on a free spin, extra free spins are won:
|Scatters||Feature 1||Feature 2||Feature 3|
|2 scatters||3 free spins||5 free spins||6 free spins|
|3 scatters||5 free spins||8 free spins||12 free spins|
|4 scatters||10 free spins||15 free spins||25 free spins|
|5 scatters||15 free spins||20 free spins||40 free spins|
When you get a winning combination with a wild symbol, a random multiplier is applied – it can be as high as 4x if you choose feature 1. If you get a 4x wild on all 3 middle reels, the multiplier values are multiplied meaning a potential 64x multiplier can apply to your wins!
African Quest slot thoughts
The African Quest game looks decent enough – it doesn’t stand out aesthetically. The Paid Respins feature is not something I’d recommend as it can cost a lot for little reward – the RTP does increase to 96.52% in the respins though. It’s all about the Free Spins feature where you can choose between more free spins or a bigger wild multiplier.
I would always opt for the larger wild multipliers as it can lead to 64x multipliers! With an RTP of 96.02%, this high variance slot can pay up to 5,600 x stake on each free spin. Just hope the wild multipliers work their magic and unleash the power of the lion. If you want another volatile African adventure, Blueprint Gaming’s Safari Gold Megaways slot offers 50,000 x stake wins.
