Serengeti Kings: Demo
Best Casinos to play NetEnt’s Serengeti Kings Slot
Serengeti Kings Theme/Symbols
Serengeti King takes you to northern Tanzania to the infamous geographic region. With cartoon style graphics, you’ll see mountains in the backdrop as well as trees and rocks on the plains. Symbols include A, K, Q, J and 10 royals which are nicely designed as they feature animal skins on them.
You’ll also see meerkats, zebras, giraffes, hyenas, lions and panthers – both the lion and panther (the Serengeti Kings) pay the most with 3, 4 or 5 on a payline giving you 1, 2 or 5 times your stake respectively. Wins are formed by getting 3 or more matching symbols on a payline from left to right (starting from the 1st reel).
The sunset symbol is the wild and appears anywhere on the reels – it replaces all symbols except the scatters. More importantly, 3, 4 or 5 wilds will pay 3, 10 or 50 times your stake.
Lion feature & Panther feature
The Serengeti Kings slot begins with the Lion Spins mode and then the Panther Spins mode. Each last for 12 spins each. During the spins, all lion and panther symbols appearing on the reels are collected into the Loin Counter and the Panther Counter respectively.
On the 12th Lion Spin, no lion symbols are collected and the Lion feature is triggered. Here, all lion symbols collected in the Lion Counter are randomly added to the reels. On the 12th Panther Spin, no panther symbols are collected. Furthermore, the Panther feature is triggered when all collected panther symbols added randomly onto the reels. The settings turns from night to day here too.
Now, if a lion symbol is placed on top of a panther symbol or vice versa, a wild symbol is created. If a lion or panther symbol is placed on top of the same symbol or a wild, the multiplier of the symbol increases by 1. Every payline begins with a 1x multiplier – the multipliers from each symbol is applied and can result in some big multipliers which will dramatically affect your winning potential. Once the 12 spins are over in either mode, the multipliers are reset and the process begins again.
Free Spins feature
Serengeti Kings also comes with a Free Spins feature – this is played when you get 3 or more scatters (half sun/half moon) anywhere on the reels. You’ll then get 12 free spins. You can get more symbols in the Lion and Panther Counters by triggering the feature with more scatters:
- 3 scatters – you’ll begin with 0 symbols in the Lion and Panther Counters
- 4 scatters – you’ll begin with the number of symbols collect thus far
- 5 scatters – 5 more lion and panther symbols are added to the collected symbols in both Counters
Once in, all lion and panther symbols are collected in their counters as in the base game. On your last free spin, all symbols collected in both meters are randomly added to the reels. This can create wilds and subsequent multipliers.
Buy Free Spins feature
NetEnt has cottoned on to the trend of having a feature buy option – called the Buy Free Spins feature, you can enter the Free Spins feature with 3, 4 or 5 scatters. Not available to players in the UK (due to regulations introduced by the UK Gambling Commission), the various options changes with each spin. Expect over 50 x stake for 3 scatters, over 80 x stake for 4 scatters and over 240 x stake for 5 scatters.
Serengeti Kings thoughts
The Serengeti Kings slot is well designed and looks like a modern edition of the Lion King movie! Graphics aside, it’s about collecting lion and panther symbols so more of them are placed on the reels on your 12th spin in either mode. You can get more lion/panther symbols in the Free Spins feature by triggering the feature with 4 or 5 scatters.
With an RTP of 96.2%, it’s an entertaining slot game which is quite simple in terms of gameplay. Variance wise, it’s in the middle. If you were to fill the reels with wild symbols, you’d win 1,300 x stake – the likelihood is minimal. The bigger wins will come from the multipliers but the low value symbols will make it virtually impossible to win over 1,000 x stake on each spin or free spin.
I would much rather play Blueprint Gaming’s Safari Gold Megaways which has more bonus features and potential 50,000 x stake payouts on each spin.
