Animal Instinct Slot RTP, Details & Wager Limits
Reels/Paylines: 5 reels + 40 paylines
Stakes Range: 8p to £240 per spin
Max Win: 7,553.375 x bet
The Animal Instinct slot takes place on 5 reels, 4 rows and 40 fixed paylines. Landing 3 or more identical symbols from left to right (starting from reel 1) across any of the 40 paylines will constitute a winning combination. The more matching symbols on a payline, the larger the payout naturally.
Bets-wise, you can play Animal Instinct from 8p to £240 per spin. The max bet of £240 may be lower though as some UK slot sites. However, the low 8p a spin bet will appeal to many. To change your bet, click/press the arrow on the left which also allows you to enable Turbo Mode (for non-UK players). Autoplay is also available outside the UK which can see up to 100 auto spins or until you trigger a bonus feature.
The Animal Instinct RTP rate is 95.51%. Lower than the 96% online slots average, it’s the only RTP available on the game. Medium volatility, winning combinations will land on average every 2.95 spins as the hit frequency rate is 33.88%.
Finally, the Animal Instinct slot comes with 7,553.375 x bet max wins. Achieved, on average, every 1 billion spins, winning 1,000 x your total bet or higher will occur every 3.6 million spins. Key to winning big are the bonus features which are triggered every 141.9 spins (again, on average).
Theme: roam wide open spaces in Africa
Theme: African Safari
High Value Symbol: Lion
Compatibility: Mobile, Tablet, Desktop
With an African safari theme, the Animal Instinct slot sees you roam the wide-open African savanna. Spiritual and uplighting, you come across Africa’s greatest animals in the hope of lion-sized wins.
With a peaceful setting, the soundtrack is mystical and tribal. Beautifully designed, the higher value symbols appear 2-high with stunning high-definition imagery. It looks a little like WMS’ Raging Rhino and Playtech’s Buffalo Blitz truth be told.
On the reels, you’ll come across low-value A, K, Q, J and 10 royals. High-value symbols include African buffalos, rhinos, leopards, elephants and lions. The lion is the best-paying symbol awarding 0.75, 3.75 or 12.5 times your total bet for 3, 4 or 5 in combination.
Look out for the Sunset Wild symbol that substitutes for all paying symbols above. 3, 4 or 5 will pay 0.75, 3.75 or 12.5 x bet like the lion symbol. Other symbols to look out for include the Power Collect and the African Tribe Man Scatter which are key to triggering bonus features (more information below).
Animal Instinct Mobile
Created using HTML5 technology, Animal Instinct can be played on mobile, tablet and/or desktop devices. As with all Playtech slots these days, it’s been produced with mobile play in mind. It’s compatible with iOS, Android and/or Windows smartphones.
Animal Instinct Bonus Features
The Animal Instinct slot comes with 6 bonus features. Power Collect symbols collect all instances of 1 animal symbol with the lion paying up to 625 x bet. Then you have 5 Animal features with 4 of them offering free spins. You have random animal wilds, multipliers applying to Power Collects, cash prizes, double-stacked Power Collect symbols and stacked wilds.
When 1 or more Power Collect symbols land on any of the 3 middle reels, the Collect feature will be triggered. The Power Collect symbol flashes 1 of 5 colours and collects all instances of 1 of the animal symbols.
The African buffalo, rhino, leopard, elephant and lion symbols are blue, pink, green, red and gold in colour respectively. Here’s what each of the animal symbols can pay:
- African Buffalo/Rhino/Leopard: 1-10 awards 0.75 to 375 x bet
- Elephant: 1-10 awards 1 to 500 x bet
- Lion: 1-10 awards 1.25 to 625 x bet
Once all animal symbols are collected, the Power Collect symbol transforms into a Sunset Wild. The reel the animal symbol was collected from collapses with the respective meter filling up.
The Animal Instinct slot comes with 5 Animal features. When an African Tribe Man Scatter lands simultaneously on reels 1, 3 and 5, one of the five features will be triggered.
Which feature is activated depends on which meter is filled the highest. If multiple meters are completely full, equally filled or entirely empty, 1 of the features will be chosen randomly. The soundtrack is all features and upbeat like in the 1994 The Lion King movie. Here is what each of the features entails:
- Lion Free Games feature (Gold Meter): On each free spin, 1 random animal symbol acts as a Sunset Wild symbol.
- Elephant Free Games feature (Red Meter): For 10 free spins, a row of multipliers appears above the reels. The rightmost multiplier above the reels multiplies all payouts won from Power Collect symbols. When a multiplier applies, it disappears and all multipliers above the reels shift to right with a new multiplier appearing from the left. Multiplier values range between 2x and 25x.
- Leopard Bonus feature (Green Meter): 3 Scatters appear. Flip the first scatter to reveal a cash prize and second scatter to reveal a win multiplier up to 5x. The multiplier is then applied to the cash prize.
- Rhino Free Games feature (Pink Meter): For 10 free spins, all Power Collect symbols appear double-stacked.
- Buffalo Free Games feature (Blue Meter): On the 1st free spin, 55 stacked wild symbols are added on reel 2. On the 2nd and 4th free spins, 40 and 65 stacked wilds are added to reel 3 and 4 respectively. Sunset Wilds remain on the reels until the feature ends.
Animal Instinct Review Summary: lots of variety from the African grasslands
Superbly designed, the Animal Instinct slot follows a long line of games inspired by the African wilderness. Lions, elephants and rhinos appear in countless slot games including Buffalo Blitz and Raging Rhino most famously. Well designed, it looks particularly great on smartphone devices.
In terms of the bonus features, the Power Collect symbol collects instances of 1 animal symbol. If you are lucky enough to collect 10 Lion symbols, you’ll pocket a decent 625 x bet payout. However, the bigger wins will certainly come in the Animal features.
Of the 5 Animal features, the Buffalo Free Games feature sees stacked wilds added on the reels which remain in place until the feature ends. My favourite is the Elephant Free Games feature. Basically, payouts from the Power Collect symbol will be subject to a multiplier of up to 25x. If you landed 10 Lion symbols, you’d win 15,625 x your total bet theoretically.
With 7,553.375 x bet max wins possible, the Elephant Free Games feature is the only way to achieve this. Multipliers in some of the other free spins features would have made the Animal Instinct slot on par with the iconic Buffalo Blitz.
If you want slots with multiple free spins features, Microgaming’s Immortal Romance or Playtech’s Age of the Gods offer them. Both offer bigger wins than Animal Instinct with 12,150 and 50,000 x bet max wins possible (respectively).
- 7,553 x bet max wins
- 4 free spins features
- Multipliers up to 25x on Power Collect wins
- Very similar design to other African safari slots
- Only 1 of 6 features can award max win
