King Tusk is brought to you by Microgaming and comes with 5 reels and 25 paylines. Playable from 25p to £62.50 a spin on all devices (including smartphones and tablets), this elephant themed slot offers you wild reels as well as 3 free spins features with unique wild features.
Visually, King Tusk takes you to wild Africa as you see elephants in their natural habitat – with an artistic feel to it, symbols on the reels include A, K, Q, J, 10 and 9 playing cards as well as pottery (full of gold coins) and elephants (an elephant family and elephant couple). King Tusk is the wild symbol and replaces all other symbols bar the scatter – it can also randomly expand into a wild reel in the base game.
King Tusk is all about the 3 free spins features – these can accessed when you get 3 King Tusk logo scatter symbols anywhere on the reels. You will then choose from 3 free spins features each with their wild feature – each offering 10 free spins initially, here’s what to expect:
- Elephants Gone Wild feature – all elephant symbols become wild during the free spins
- Elephants Stampede feature – 2 reels randomly become wild reels on each free spin
- Elephant Dance feature – a wild symbol is added on each free spin which remain on the reels for 5 free spins
Further, the wild symbol replaces all symbols except the scatter and can randomly expand to give you wild reels for even bigger wins. Also, any symbol (except the scatter) can also randomly transform into a wild. If you get 3 scatters simultaneously during a free spin, you will retrigger the feature giving you 10 more free spins and 20 free spins in total.
King Tusk is a fun slot from Microgaming which looks great and offers good winning potential with the wild and 3 free spins features – I found the Elephants Gone Wild feature the most rewarding as there are a few elephant symbols that will become wild on every free spin.
It does offer you wins of up to 992 times your stake on each spin/free spin but it’s a low variance game meaning most of your wins will be on the smaller side. If you like the theme, I suggest you try Novomatic’s African Simba and IGT’s The Wild Life which are higher variance.
