With a theme that we haven't seen very often at all, the African Spirit slot by Booongo uses an African theme with totems, animals and other symbols to give a unique feel to the game. It has a bit of a mystical feel to it without being overboard, and the graphics are very appealing. The soundtrack is interesting as well, and it seems that everything is in place wth this game to wrap players up in a very immersive expeirence.
A pretty standard format is used as the basis for this slot. You'll get five reels with three rows of symbols, and there are 20 paylines. The paylines are static, and you cannot change them. Players will have options for around a dozen different total bet sizes based on wagering different amounts per payline. This starts with $0.01 on each payline for a total minimum bet of $0.20. The available bet sizes max out at $60 per turn in this particular game, which works out to be a $3 bet on each line.
Wild Jaguar Symbols
The wild Jaguar symbol appears on the second, third, fourth and fifth rows only. Because he'll never be on the first row, there are no wild-only winning combinations. He also does not substitute for the scatter, but he is important for two different features that drive the majority of the gameplay in this slot.
The first feature is simply a random wild. If no other bonus feature triggers on a regular spin, you'll have a chance to get extra wilds added to the reels. A minimum of four and maximum of eight random wilds can appear on the last four reels to give you opportunities to make a ton of big winning combinations that you otherwise would not have received.
Spear Symbol Respins
The spear symbol shows up sometimes on the fifth reel. When it appears, if it shows up on the same horizontal row as one of the jaguar symbols on the second, third or fourth reels, then it triggers a special respin. The African Spirit slot's respin feature will cause the wild that triggered the feature to expand to cover the entire row, and then the other four reels will spin again with no cost to the player for an opportunity to get extra payouts. This obviously has a bit of a hunting motif to it, and it's a great way to trigger a feature that fits in well with the concept for the game.
Scatters and Guaranteed Scatters Feature
The blue, glowing mask is the scatter symbol in this slot, and it shows up on the first, last and middle reels. Get three on the reels at the same time to trigger the free spins bonus feature, as outlined below. Additionally, you'll have a chance to trigger the feature anyway if you only get two scatters thanks to the guaranteed scatter feature. If you don't hit the respin or random wilds feature, and you score at least one or two scatters on the reels, then you'll have a random chance for more scatters to be randomly added to trigger the free spins.
Free Spins Feature
In the free spins feature, you'll randomly get between six and ten turns. You'll also get extra bonuses for the feature like multipliers of 2x or 3x, random wilds on each spin, expanding wilds on each spin or an instant payout of 20 times your total bet size instead of getting free spins. This is a fun way to add a bit of variety to the feature, which is sorely lacking for most games with a free spins bonus round.
Five of the red mask symbol earns 1,000x, and you can get 500x for five of the orange mask as well. The purple rhino gets 400x for five, and the monkey earns 150x for the same. Stylized card rank symbols will get you between 100x and 60x if you line up five on a payline as well, and this includes the A, K, Q, J and 10 symbols.
African Spirit by Booongo gets some major props from us for its usage of a cool theme with great graphics. There are several features in this game that pack serious value, and the pay table is balanced enough to keep the swings down while having chances for prizes that are large enough to keep things interesting. As a result, the gameplay is fast-paced with a high level of action, and this slot as a whole will appeal to players who enjoy this style of play.
