Mammoth Chase Slot
- An unusual reel layout with 4096 ways to win
- Progressive jackpots give you a chance to win some big rewards
- An excellent slot let down only by a rather basic design
Mammoth Chase slot is a brand new game from Kalamba Games, a lesser known software developer who tend to do things a bit different which isn’t always a good thing but certainly shakes things up from what can sometimes be a monotonous series of boring slots. Fortunately, here we have a game that actually does a lot of things right but in a unique way that helps set the game apart. Now, the theme might not be that unique but it’s pretty cool and not especially common so I’m happy there. Once the game loads up though, you’ll see an interesting 6×4 layout which isn’t that common among the bigger developers but I think works really well compared to the 5×3 setup.
When it comes to the overall visuals, Mammoth Chase slot won’t really blow you away but doesn’t look terrible either. The character symbols are bold and colourful with creatures like saber-tooth tigers and mammoths, in stark contrast to the dull and smaller lower value symbols. Up top, you have the progressive jackpots, and the backdrop is just a simple mountain range with some trees. What’s more impressive is the 4096 ways to win using the 6×4 layout, and with an RTP of 96.48%, you can see we already have some pretty impressive statistics. To play the game is simple enough, you must spin the reels to get a winning combination using the base symbols from left to right. These base symbols are listed as follows, ranked in ascending order based on their value:
- 9, 10, Jack or Queen (lowest value)
- King or Ace
- Sabre-tooth Tiger
- Wolf or Bear
- Mammoth (highest value)
As you’d expect, Mammoth Chase slot also has a wild symbol which comes in the form of a huge diamond and substitutes for all other symbols apart from the Bonus symbol, the 2x Wild and 3x Wild. The 2x Wild and 3x Wild symbols substitute for all other symbols apart from the bonus symbol and of course each other, counting as a 2x multiplier or 3x multiplier, respectively.
Mammoth Chase Slot Bonuses and Features
Progressive Jackpots. Unlike many other slots, these aren’t offered as part of a bonus, rather just for getting a certain number of symbols on the screen at any point. More specifically, 10 or 11 Mammoth symbols will offer you the Silver progressive, 12 or 13 gives you the Gold progressive and 14 or more will offer you the Platinum progressive, the most valuable of course. To help you with this, sort of, there are also symbols which have a multiplier of 2x or 3x on them. These make that particular symbol count as 2 symbols or 3 symbols, respectively.
Free Spins Bonus. This is the main bonus as is triggered by 3 or more Bonus symbols scattered anywhere on the screen. As well as receiving a number of free spins, you will also get a cash reward depending on how many symbols appear:
- 3 Bonus symbols offer 8 free spins and 1200 FUN
- 4 Bonus symbols offer 12 free spins and 3000 FUN
- 5 Bonus symbols offer 15 free spins and 6000 FUN
- 6 Bonus symbols offer 20 free spins and 30000 FUN
There are several features during the Free Spins Bonus that help to make it more rewarding also. For one, all Wild symbols are replaced with 2x Wild and 3x Wild symbols, multiplying your wins by the corresponding amount. What’s more, if another 2 Bonus symbols appear in any position during the free spins, you will receive another 3 extra free spins.
Boxes. This is a fun little feature where doughnut boxes can appear and open up to give you up to 4 doughnut symbols or a Wild with a multiplier of 2x, 3x or 4x associated to it. This feature does not appear during the free games.
Mammoth Chase slot from Kalamba Games has quite a lot to offer and will probably appeal to those with a higher bankroll as the variance is pretty high. That being said, there are quite a few big rewards to be had through either the progressive jackpots or free spins bonus, although not so much the latter I suppose. I like the unique reel layout, 6×4 is certainly a more unusual concept but very welcome, and having 4096 ways to win is also a great addition to the already pretty unique slot. I think the Free Spins Bonus works well, I would have liked to have seen another bonus, even just a small one, but apart from that, it’s a great game just like Dino Odyysey slot that I think most of you will enjoy.
