Have you always dreamed of travelling to Africa and exploring its great plains, seeing its majestic wildlife at the same time? From 21 January 2020, you’ll be able to do just that without leaving the comfort of your own home! That’s when the online pokies selection at Mummys Gold Casino is getting an exciting new addition, African Quest.
The 5 reel, 4 row game is the latest collaboration between Microgaming and Triple Edge Studios, and brings the industry legend’s experience together with the fledgling developer’s innovation. The result is a truly exceptional game that is as gorgeous to look at as it is rewarding to play.
Your Own Personal Safari
The magnificent fauna and flora of Africa are perfectly represented in African Quest’s graphics. The high-value icons are beautiful renditions of giraffes, elephants, zebras, rhinos and lions. The 9 to A symbols, in a vibrant font, are used for lower-value icons.
The background to the reels themselves is a Savannah scene at sunset, while the Wild Symbol is represented by a vivid sunrise. The Scatter is a golden coin, depicting a relief map of Africa and giving you some idea of the riches you could win.
Wild Ways to Win
The affordable betting range in African Quest ranges from from 0.1 to 15.00 per spin, and the maximum jackpot is a dazzling 168,00 coins. With a theoretical Return to Player percentage and hit Rate of 96.02%, you could very well win the top prize or any of the other exciting payouts in this ultra-high-volatility thrill ride.
The other reason you’re likely to win with this slot is the incredible Ways to Win pay structure that is used instead of conventional paylines. The icons don’t need to land in specific reel positions; as long as they are in a specific order along consecutive reels, they can be in any row. That means that on every round you have no less than 1024 Ways to Win!
The Hyperspins feature boosts your chances of a payout even more. After every round in the base game, you can choose to pay to respin 1 reel. You can choose the reel you want to respin and can activate the feature as many times as you like; the only rule is that you can’t respin more than 1 reel at a time. With the Hyperspins option, the Return to Player percentage climbs even higher to 96.52%.
More Adventures with Special Features
As with any Microgaming or Triple Edge Studios slot, just when you thought the gameplay couldn’t get any better – it does. Remember the Wild and Scatter Symbols we mentioned earlier? They appear regularly to make all your spins more exciting and, ultimately, more lucrative too.
The Wild can replace any other icon except the Scatter, helping to create more winning patterns on the reels. The Scatter is so special it makes sense that it can’t be substituted by the Wild; when 3 or more land on the screen at the same time a bonus round is triggered.
During the free spins, African Quest puts the power in your hands and allows you to choose between 3 different combinations of free spin and Wild multiplier amounts. With more free spins come less impressive multipliers applied to any Wilds that land, and vice versa.
