Providers can never go wrong when looking for inspiration in a safari. With that in mind, NetEnt provided us with Serengeti Kings, a 5 reel slot, with 4 rows and 26 ways for the player to land a winning combo. Find the adventurer in yourself and enjoy this exciting game filled with some interesting features and satisfying payouts.
The theme of this game is a safari, which is always interesting, it also reminds a little of the always amazing movie The Lion King. It shows that the providers did their best at making this an authentic experience with everything there is to see when one visits a safari.
In the background are beautiful green fields with trees and bushes. There is also a thin dirt road that leads across it. Further away are the mountains and the sun setting behind them. The setting changes from day to night once the player enters the bonus round. The soundtrack contributes to making the safari experience interesting a lot as well. It consists of nature sounds and different animal calls.
The graphics are great and the design of the characters pretty interesting. Some of them include the regular colorful royals with different animal prints on them, zebras, meerkats, giraffes, hyenas. The lion and panther are special symbols that trigger special features. The game also features a wild and scatter symbol. The symbols are what adds to the theme the most as they are what we go to a safari for.
This is a high volatility game which means that anything could be expected. The player can bet a minimum of 0,10 and a maximum of 100 coins per spin. With the help of features, the player has the chance to win up to 1,300x the stake in a single spin. The game also has a decent RTP set at an average 96,2%.
The features of the game are what it is all about, as they are interesting and a lot of fun. Just like any other, the game features a wild symbol. It is represented by the sunset and replaces all other symbols except the scatter, not to mention it pays very well.
The main attention goes to the Lion and Panther features. The game has 2 modes that change every 12 spins. There are counters on each side of the reel that collect lion and panther symbols and count down the spins left for a certain mode. The game starts from the Lion Spins mode where it is bright and sunny. It then changes to the Panther Spins mode where the setting is darker and it is night.
On every 12th spin, all the collected symbols specific for the mode are added to the reels causing for a huge win. Another great thing is that if the panther symbol is placed on the lion symbol or the other way around, they turn into a wild symbol. If the two symbols are places on matching symbols or a wild, the multiplier of that symbol goes up by one.
If that is not great enough, the game has a Free Spins round that is triggered by landing 3, 4 or 5 scatter symbols anywhere on the reels. The player gets 12 free spins and a different number of collected symbols according to the number of triggering symbols. Three scatters will start the player off at zero panther or lion symbol, four will let the player keep what he has collected so far and begin with that, and five adds 5 more lion and panther symbols to the already collected ones. The symbols are then collected up until the feature ends and are then added to the reels hopefully landing the player a great win.
