African Legends Features
Let's get this straight from the start, African Legends is all about the progressive jackpot and everything else takes a back seat. While there is a free spins round and a couple of modifiers to keep things interesting, players are here for one reason—and it isn't to get their hands on a few free spins.
At any point during the base game, the Wild Blast feature can appear and bring a little happiness to your balance. You will be pleased to see these random wilds turn up as your bankroll is going to take a bit of a shoeing throughout your journey.
There isn't much more to it other than a few wild symbols turning up on the reels, so don't expect any special bonus round to appear or the game format to change in any way.
Rolling Reels + Multiplier Trail
Slingshot has chosen to call their version of cascading reels 'rolling reels' for copyright purposes, but it is essentially the same thing.
Wins are created by landing winning symbols on consecutive reels rather than any fixed win lines and this is how you get to benefit from 243 ways to win. When you hit a win, the winning symbols will disappear and those above will fall into their place bringing new ones down with them.
It is a fairly standard modifier, but it does have a trick up its sleeve. Landing 2 wins in a row, will see you move along the Multiplayer Trail. You begin with x2 and you continue to add an extra plus one multiplier with each consecutive win.
As we have seen above, the Multiplier Trail will begin to add some welcome winnings as you hit successive wins. The great thing about the above feature is that it plays directly into the free spins trigger. Once you hit 4 spins in a row, you will land 12 free spins and you continue to get more of these with each consecutive win.
There isn't a whole lot to mention about the free spins game other than you will enter with the multiplier that you finished off with on the trail from the base game.
Hitting the big time in African Legends is, yet again, all about the Multiplier Trail. As you know, you start with an x2 and eventually make your way up to free spins with 4 or more wins. But watch as the 8th win rolls in and you will be the recipient of some very good news indeed.
You don't have to play any side feature or hope for the best when this happens, you pocket the progressive jackpot directly. The seed prize is 50,000 and it can go up to a massive amount over time. Remember that your chances of hitting this prize increases with your bet size.
