Animafia is a new casino slot from Peter & Sons where a hilarious theme meets what we think is a rather underrated mechanic.
Peter & Sons, one of the most thematically innovative providers out there, are back at it. In this one, you’ll meet the Animafia crew, primarily consisting of a bear, hippo, and a monkey. Although they’re quite short-handed, you shouldn’t be messing around with them. Currently, a poor sheep is being held hostage by the Animafia, with the bear holding a shotgun in its mouth. Scary situation, but you’ll be fine. Let’s dig in!
Animafia is a video slot from Peter & Sons that features a setup of 5 reels, 5 rows, and 40 paylines. Players can choose between a Min.bet of 0.2 and a Max.bet of 50. The game has an RTP of 96.1%, placing it just above the industry average on that metric. It also has a hit frequency of 25.2%, implying that you can expect a winning combination on every 4th spin, on average. Animafia is played at mid-high volatility and can net you a max win of 3200x the bet.
Before getting thrown into action, you better be prepared on how to take on the game. The features are Power Wilds, Scatter Symbol, Collection Meter, Free Spins, Golden Bet, and Bonus Buys.
The base game takes place by a zoo, as stated on the directional signs at your right-hand side. It’s a really cool setting with three badass animals. We’re yet to figure out if we’re on their side, though, so be careful. When you trigger the bonus game, it’s time to head on over to the bank, where the director is held under gunpoint. Yet again, are we participating in this? Are we the director? It’s unclear, but dope nonetheless.
Animafia can be played on all common mobile devices and desktops. A winning combination is created by landing 3 or more matching symbols on consecutive reels within the game’s lines, starting from the leftmost reel.
The lower-paying symbols consist of J, Q, K, and A. A full line of 5 with one of these pays 1x-1.5x the bet. The higher-paying symbols include frogs, rhinos, apes, and lions. Five-of-a-kind with these pays 3x-10x the bet. There are also various Wild symbols and Scatters available, but more on that in a bit.
What is the max win in the slot Animafia?
You can win up to 3200x the bet.
What features are available in the slot Animafia?
The features are Power Wilds, Scatter Symbol, Collection Meter, Free Spins, Golden Bet, and Bonus Buys.
The Power Wilds feature can happen randomly, triggering any of the following wilds:
Random Wilds - 4-15 Wilds are randomly placed on the grid
Expanding Wilds - Covers the whole reel and can appear randomly on reels 1-5.
Monster Wild - A 1x1, 2x2, 3x3, 4x4, or 5x5 Wild is placed on the grid.
Landing 3 Scatter symbols (safes) triggers the Free Spins feature.
If you land 2 Scatter symbols, you’ll progress one step on the progression meter above the grid. By progressing the meter, you’ll upgrade the next bonus you trigger. At max, you can reach 20 Free Spins, which will simply award you 20 Free Spins as soon as you land 3 Scatters. After the Free Spins feature has been completed, the meter is reset.
During the Free Spins feature, a roaming Wild symbol is active on every spin. Once again, you’ll be collecting Scatter symbols. Each Scatter landing moves you one step forward on the progression meter in the top right. The roaming Wild will start of with a 1x1 size, growing to 2x2, 3x3, 4x4, and finally, 5x5 (full screen) for each level you progress. Making it to a new level also awards you 2 extra Free Spins.
The Golden Bet can be activated at an extra cost of 20% the bet, doubling your chance of triggering Free Spins.
If you want to jump straight into the heat of action, there are three different Bonus Buys up for grabs:
50x = Awards 6 Free Spins
150x = Awards 20 Free Spins
100x = Awards 6, 8, 10, 12, 15, or 20 Free Spins, at random.
In its core, Animafia is similar to the likes of Fat Rabbit and Fat Banker. Like in those two, the bonus is all about collecting a specific symbol to grow the Wild and create some insane potential. So of course, there’s some lack in the innovation aspect, and we think that’s important to mention.
However, this is a game we don’t really look at as a “re-skin”. First of all, the skin is so good that even if this was a direct copy of another game, we’d still appreciate it. Peter & Sons is blessed with what has to be a phenomenal graphical team. They constantly explore new themes, and refuse to stick to mainstream slot environments. Not only that, but the designs are unique and along with Hacksaw, Peter & Sons creates some of the most recognizable slots out there. For some reason, the studio hasn’t really ascended to that top level yet, where they are seen as an S-tier provider, and we’re not really sure why. The way you build in basegame to create stronger bonuses is superb, as it removes some of the stress you can feel when not landing a bonus.
The fact remains that the bonus game is a bit too similar to Push’s “Fat-series”, but because of additions and Peter & Son’s personal touch, Animafia is a refreshing game and we’re looking forward to playing it.
Animafia by Peter & Sons introduces you to a crew of gangster animals, where a beloved mechanic meets an awesome theme.
