King of Africa is an online slot game developed by WMS who are well known for their high quality 3D slot games which feature unique themes and original bonus concepts. WMS has been around since 1994 and are also well known for their slot machines in land based casinos.
A grassy African plain is the setting for this online slot game and includes soft African music playing in the background. The symbols are cartoon style and include animals such as leopard, elephant, antelope and zebra. Also included are an African shield and necklace and a baobab tree.
Symbols and Bonus Features
King of Africa has five reels and twenty paylines. The wild symbol is the King of Africa logo which acts as a substitute for all the other symbols except the scatter, to create a winning combination. The scatter symbol is the flame tree. In order to trigger the free spins feature players would need to get three or more scatter symbols.
King of Africa includes Hot Hot Penny, unique to WMS slot games. The Hot Hot Penny is an extra forced bet of ten times the wager per line and this is automatically added to the total bet. Penny is a flame haired girl and will assist players who only get two scatters, and it is here that the Hot Hot Penny feature will be triggered and the reels will spin again. The reels will spin in slow motion which helps to land on the feature symbol. This feature is available for all other symbols and players are able to not only activate free spins, but also the standard jackpot.
Initially eight free spins are awarded, but then there is the extra feature where players get to choose between three and five tiles and each one reveals a prize. Players are able to win between one and thirty extra spins if they are able to hit any of the gold coins. During the free spins round there is an additional symbol, an extra wild, the giraffe icon which appears randomly on the reels with each spin.
During the free spins round 3 scatters will trigger ten free spins, 4 scatters will trigger twenty five free spins and five scatters will trigger one hundred free spins.
