MegaJackpots Elephant Kingdom Review
MegaJackpots Elephant King by IGT is a fantastic example of a safari slot done well. Although this genre has seen its fair share of titles over the years, Elephant King goes a lot further with this theme than simply using some images of African wildlife.
From incredibly sharp and vibrant graphics and atmospheric action-adventure sound effects to tons of special features and an enormous progressive jackpot prize, this is sure to be another smash hit for slot makers IGT.
We love the Prize Disk feature that can take you on to win free spins, cash prizes and of course the big jackpot prize. But this game also comes with medium volatility, which is extremely rare for a progressive jackpot title and is a very nice touch from IGT.
The team at IGT have done an excellent job of designing this game. Not only does MegaJackpots Elephant King offer you a great, adventurous atmosphere, but the graphics are sharp, stunning and extraordinarily colourful.
We particularly enjoyed the parched African desert backdrop, with a setting sun in a dark and ominous sky, and we also love the gold-decorated reels and the Price Disks that burst full of gold and blues when you’re lucky enough to land one. All the wildlife depicted in the symbols is gorgeous, but the elephants really do steal the show.
Overall, this is a wonderful example of how to do a high-stakes, high-adrenaline slot to perfection, and you'll be hard pressed to find better graphics, or a more authentic theme, with any other game.
With 5 reels and 3 rows, this is a pretty standard slot game. But with your potential prizes running along the top of the reels, this adds a little bit of spice into the base game. As with most slots, your aim is to match symbols across the 5 reels, from left to right.
But of course, you must be on the lookout for those Prize Disks as well, which will take you to either a free spins round or potentially the Mega Jackpot Bonus feature.
Navigating your way around the game is easy, but if you want any further instructions you can always press on the ‘paytable’ icon to get a full rundown of the game and its rules. So even if you’re an absolute beginner, you'll get the hang of this game in just a few spins, as it is both enjoyable and very easy to play.
Being a progressive jackpot title, the potential cash prize on offer is eye-watering. Although it is impossible to say what you could win at any given time, as the jackpot is constantly growing, the top prize of MegaJackpots Elephant King begins at a whopping £500,000, which is an incredible amount for any slots title.
Add into that the possibility that this jackpot could be double or even triple that amount when you win it, and you've got the recipe for an exhilarating slot game that could entirely change your life!
Plus, as mentioned, we were very surprised to learn that this slot is actually medium volatility. Most progressive games are highly volatile, so it was nice to see a game that doesn't make you work as hard to land those all-important wins.
Finally, with an RTP that ranges from anywhere from 88.99% up to 92.49%, this game offers a rather low RTP, which is generally the case for progressive jackpot titles.
It’s fair to say that we loved playing MegaJackpots Elephant King by IGT. This established software developer knows its stuff and we’re always impressed when old-school slot makers come up with something completely new. And we were blown away by the incredible and unique Elephant King game!
The graphics are excellent and the gameplay is fun and fast-paced. Plus, the addition of the Prize Disks and Mega Jackpot Bonus game really makes this safari title stand out from its competitors.
We would have liked to have seen a little more flexibility with paylines, and a slightly higher RTP, but these are just tiny details for us fussy slot reviewers! All in all, this is an awesome game. And with a prize pool starting at £500,000, we imagine this will be a fan-favourite for years to come.
