African Legends online slot by Microgaming and Slingshot Studios places you in a tropical jungle with grim animal face carvings serving as symbols on the reels. The slot’s cascading wins mechanic removes symbols that form winning combinations, allowing more symbols to appear in their place, potentially creating a string of winning combinations. The bonus features include free spins, multipliers, and a progressive jackpot.
The game randomly transforms up to 5 symbols on the reels into wilds in the base game, this feature will not activate directly after a cascading win.
A cascading win will trigger a multiplier that starts at 2x and every subsequent win will increase the multiplier value up to a maximum of 10x your bet.
If you manage to land 4 cascading wins in a row, the game will award you 12 free spins. If you manage 5, 6, or 7 consecutive wins, you will get 15, 18, or 20 free spins, respectively.
To get to the progressive jackpot, you will need to get 8 consecutive cascading wins. The WowPot Major jackpot seeds and $50 000.
African Legends slot contains a lot of solid features and gameplay that are ultimately all supporting players to the potentially life-changing progressive jackpot. This title has rich visuals that bring the African jungle theme to vivid life, creating a truly immersive sensory experience. Besides looking impressive, the theme doesn’t factor into the gameplay at all, so don’t expect a fully fleshed story to go along with the visuals. Random wilds and the multiplier trail are great occurrences during the base game, boosting your winning potential greatly.
The slot’s standard top winning potential of $30 000 is modest, but it plays second fiddle to the WowPot progressive jackpot that will pay you a minimum of $50 000 and untold amounts beyond if you’re lucky enough to get 8 consecutive cascading wins. Unlike some progressive jackpot slots, the theme and gameplay of African Legends are compelling enough that it could stand alone as a popular title without the benefit of the jackpot prize.
