The most popular online casino games provider, NetEnt, has officially launched its latest title inspired by the great African landscape. They called the slot Serengeti Kings to honor the mighty animals living in the African plains.
The game has been on the radar of many online slot lovers, as it was announced more than a month ago. It was one of the most anticipated casino games in the last couple of weeks, and casino enthusiasts will finally be able to test it out.
The game itself offers rather simple gameplay. First of all, the grid structure is slightly different from the standard one. Although it has five reels, each of them comes with four rows. Moreover, Serengeti Kings features 26 fixed paylines that can bring the luckiest of players a lot of big cash prizes.
Players will have an opportunity to run through the safari landscape with some of the mightiest animals living in that area, including lions, panthers, and more. These animals will show them the way to big prizes as the game comes with the RTP of 96.2 percent.
Moreover, the slot has medium to high volatility, meaning players might have to risk a bit before they are awarded hefty prizes for their effort.
Special Features — Wild Animals Can Be Rewarding
One of the most important things in this game is the guaranteed feature activation, which happens every 12 spins. In other words, after 12 spins, you are definitely going to activate one of the special features that are present in this game.
Lions and panthers are perhaps the two most important animals in the game. You will see two counters next to the reels. The one which is located to the reel grid stands for lion spins, whereas the right one represents panther spins.
Since the guaranteed feature is activated every 12th spin, the game is created in such a way to alternate between the lion and the panther spins, each of them lasting for exactly 12 rounds.
Once the guaranteed feature is activated, the collected symbols of either the lion or the panther spins will be activated as well, and the symbols will be inserted into the reels, creating a huge opportunity for big wins.
For example, if you collected 14 lion symbols during the lion spins, after 12 rounds, all of these symbols will be inserted randomly into the reels. However, some of them can be placed into the same slot several times.
If that happens, that symbol will also have multipliers. For example, if three lion symbols end up as one symbol in the reels, that symbol will have an x3 multiplier.
The game also has free spins, which can be activated if you land three or more scatter symbols. However, depending on the number of scatters, your free spins mode will be affected in one way or the other, although the number of free spins always stays the same.
In other words, you will always receive 12 free spins, no matter whether you land three, four or five scatters. However, if you start the round with three scatters, your lion and panther spin counters will reset to zero.
On the other hand, if you get four scatters, the counters will continue with the number of symbols they had at that point.
Finally, if you land five scatters, five symbols will be added for both lion and panther counters on top of the symbols you already collected. What’s important to know is that both lion and panther counters are activated in the free spins game, and the collected symbols of both counters are inserted into the reel at the end of the bonus round.
