Serengeti Gold Review
Based on the Serengeti sunrise in Tanzania, Serengeti Gold is an animal themed slot that plays on 5-reels with 25 paylines. Developed by Microgaming, this slot features all the animals you could possibly want with lions, leopards, rhinos, elephants and buffalos.
Thankfully, there are amazing features to improve the gameplay even more with Static Jackpots, free spins with multipliers and Hyperhold.
The background image is a static picture of a safari that looks straight out of a painting. The colouring is soft and looks almost like an oil painting. Sadly, it has no animation, so it does look a little lifeless.
Thankfully, the reels themselves have a little more life with the animal symbols animating slightly when you land them in a win. The designs of the animals look semi-realistic but with a cartoonish charm to make them more appealing.
Unsurprisingly, the music has a funky safari beat with drums and percussion instruments to create something that you can instantly associate with the jungle.
Serengeti Gold’s gameplay focuses on spinning the reels and landing specific symbols for wins. There’s nothing confusing about this slot and most people should be able to grasp the gameplay.
The fixed jackpots can be found to the left of the reels whilst the right side has all the settings needed. At the bottom right of the reels, you’ll find the spin button with the autospin and bet level just above it.
With an RTP at 96.10%, Serengeti Gold has a brilliant theoretical return that is above the average standard. Base game wins can reach up to 20x their stake provided that players land 5 of a kind of the lion or elephant.
The biggest win comes from the Mega jackpot that is triggered by filling all the positions during the Hyperhold. This jackpot can see players will up to 2,500x their stake from this jackpot.
Whilst the design of Serengeti Gold isn’t anything spectacular, the gameplay is pretty fun. The features such as free spins and Hyperhold enhance the gameplay so much. It’s incredible that you can win up to 25 free spins with multipliers of 5x and that the Hyperhold system can lead to instant wins on the fixed jackpots.
As the slot is a high volatility game, you’d expect a bigger payout than 2,500x but sadly that isn’t the case. That’s probably the biggest issue with the slot. If that doesn’t bother you, then you’ll have a great time with Serengeti Gold.
