African Stampede Theme/Symbols

The African Stampede slot takes on a safari to the heart of Africa. With a traditional African soundtrack playing, you’ll see the savannah at sunset in the background which is rather beautiful. Symbols include A, K, Q, J, 10 and 9 royals as well as antelopes, zebras, buffalos, rhinos and elephants.

The latter pays 0.1, 0.3, 1 or 2 times your stake for 2, 3, 4 or 5 in combination. The lion symbol is the wild and substitutes for all symbol bar the bonus scatter – the wild also appears on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 (not reel 1 basically). You form winning combinations by getting matching symbols on adjacent reels beginning from reel 1.

Free Games feature

African Stampede comes with a Free Games feature – this is played when you get 3 sunset bonus scatters on reels 1, 2 and 3. You’ll receive a 2 times stake prize as well as 12 free spins. During the feature, any wild lion landing will remain locked in position for the duration of the feature – i.e. sticky wilds. Finally, the high value elephant symbol appears stacked in the feature for bigger potential wins.

Disappointing from Novomatic

Despite African Stampede being nice to look at, this medium variance slot is rather disappointing. Filling the reels with the highest value symbol, the elephant, will result in a 100 times stake payout – that’s it. Most Novomatic slots have a 500 times stake win potential for spin/free spin so this very low and not worth playing in my opinion. If you like the safari theme, these slots will suit you much better:
