Savanna King Slot
- Free Spins with additional multiplier for extra rewards
- Four different progressive Jackpots as part of a bonus wheel
- Let down by a bland theme and could benefit from additional features
Savanna King slot is brought to you by Genesis, no not the band, the software developer who have created some pretty interesting slots in their time. This time they’ve opted for a, you guessed it, Savanna theme with a simple design and some interesting symbols including Lions, Zebras and Giraffes.
The design of this slot isn’t the most spectacular we’ve ever seen but it’s not bad either. The layout is nice and simple, with a 5×4 grid and a nice, white background on the reels. The backdrop is rather basic also, with just a couple of trees and some grass which I feel like was a lazy effort really here. What is more interesting is the gameplay, with some nice features that I’ll go into shortly. There are also 1024 ways to win which is pretty interesting and should appeal to a lot of players. To play the game, you need to spin the reels in order to get a winning combination using the base symbols. These base symbols are listed as follows, ranked in ascending order based on their value:
- 9 or 10 (lowest value)
- Jack, Queen or King
- Savanna King Logo (highest value)
The Savanna King Logo symbol also functions as the Scatter symbol which is used to trigger the Scatter Bonus. There is, as you would expect, a Wild symbol which substitutes for all other symbols in a winning combination apart from the Scatter symbol.
Savanna King Slot Bonuses and Features
Savanna Stampede Free Spins Bonus. This is the main bonus of the game and is triggered by 3, 4 or 5 Scatter symbols, awarding 8, 15 or 20 free spins, respectively. One of the main features here is that for every Wild symbol that appears in view a multiplier of 2x, 3x or 4x will be revealed and multiply all wins on screen by the shown amount. If more than one multiplier appears they will be multiplied together. This means that it’s possible to receive a multiplier of up to 64x for some very large wins. The Wild symbols will only appear on reels 2, 3 and 4 and will still substitute for all other symbols apart from the Scatter symbol, which will activate additional free spins based on the number of Scatter symbols appearing, with 2, 3, 4 or 5 symbols appearing giving you another 5, 8, 15 or 20 free spins.
Jackpot Wheel. The Jackpot Wheel can be triggered randomly after any paid spin, with the odds on the bonus being triggered increasing with the value of your bet, but this does not affect the value of the rewards given from the Jackpot Wheel. On the Wheel, you can win either one of 4 Progressive Jackpots; Mini, Minor, Major and Grand, or a cash reward. It’s possible to trigger the Jackpot Wheel along with another Bonus or Feature, but these will be played before the Jackpot Wheel.
Savanna King slot from Genesis is a pretty interesting concept with some features that a lot of people will appreciate, and despite not having anything particularly original, everything it does have works well and there’s very little to complain about. The theme is pretty nice, with a clean layout although better graphics would have been very welcome here. The Free Spins Bonus offers a decent number of free spins with a nice multiplier feature for some big rewards, and the Jackpot Wheel is a welcome addition although doesn’t offer anything too fancy. All in all, I think it’s a nice game that many will enjoy with some good features, so be sure to check it out and try it yourself.
