Zanzibar Slot Review

Zanzibar is a 5 reel, 30 payline slot game by WMS Gaming. It uses the G+ Deluxe game engine which is used by my favourite WMS slot, Black Knight II. The game has an Arabic theme with its symbols comprising a scimitar (curved blade sword), a tea pot, ornate jewellery, a drinking horn and an oasis. The name of the game probably originates from the Sultanate of Zanzibar which was off the coast of East Africa which ended in 1964 or maybe it is based on the beautiful Zanzibar Archipelago. Whatever the reason, in this game it is the name of a veiled woman fighter. Zanzibar slot features replicating wilds, scatters and free spins.

The minimum bet is 30p per spin and the maximum bet is £90.00 per spin. The highest paying symbol is the large oasis (wild) with 5 of them on an active pay line earning you 1,500 times your stake. The Oasis wild appears on all reels except for the middle reel. The Sunset Palms symbol is also a wild symbol depicting an oasis but it is smaller and can only appear on reel 3. If you land a Sunset Palms symbol on reel 3 then the larger oasis symbol will be replicated across the reels thus giving you the chance to complete multiple winning combinations – this is known as the Replicating Wild feature.

The Zanzibar fighting woman is called the feature symbol in this game. It is basically a scatter symbol that activates the Free Spins feature. 3 feature symbols gives you 10 free spins, 4 feature symbols earn you 20 free spins and 5 features get you 40 free spins. The good thing is that all free spins wins are doubled (2x multiplier). Additional free spins can be won during the feature by getting 3 or more scatter symbols. Finally, the Replicating Wild feature is available during the free spin feature.

Zanzibar slot is a medium volatility game – wins are frequent but not large, the real money comes with the replicating wild or the free spin bonus. I’ve managed to win 210 times my stake in the free spins feature but I’ve not had many big wins in this game. It’s definitely worth playing and you can only find it at Unibet Casino
