If you’ve ever found yourself dreaming of heading out on safari, the King Tusk slot from Microgaming will get you up close and personal with the noble elephants that roam the dusty plains of Africa. There’s no need to bring your binoculars along for the ride, because the game uses various images of elephants as symbols on its reels, including one that acts as an expanding wild for higher chances of creating wins.
The slot game uses five reels and twenty-five paylines, and boasts an impressively high RTP (Expected Return to Player Rate) of 97%! On top of this, you can take advantage of the Free Spins Bonus which gives you a choice of three different wild features.
There’s no denying that this game is a beautifully designed slot. It instantly transports you to the African savannah where the sun’s rays turn the land, vegetation, and sky a glorious shade of burnished gold. The sounds of elephants making trumpet-like calls are set against a slow and intense orchestral soundtrack which is accompanied by the beat of a tribal drum. In the distance, you can see giraffes enjoying the shade of acacia trees and hippos wandering lazily between the plants that are dotted across the sandy ground.
The five-by-three reel set is a bright cream colour, which makes the various symbols that appear on it stand out. There are playing card symbols (N.B., 9, 10, J, Q, K, and A) adorned with snakes, birds, nuts, lizards, and monkeys), a painted clay pot filled with gold coins, a heard of elephants splashing around in a river, a mother elephant and her baby with the trunks entwined, a stampeding elephant, and the slot’s logo.
The wild symbol in the slot is the stampeding elephant, and it can help you win prizes more frequently by substituting for all symbols except scatters. To make the gameplay even more thrilling, the slot’s manufacturer – Microgaming – has made it possible for any symbol in the main game to expand into a wild symbol randomly, and any wild to randomly transform into a stacked wild.
The King Tusk slot game logo represents the scatter symbol, and you’ll only see it on Reels 2, 3, and 4. When it lands on the reels anywhere three times, it activates the Free Spins Bonus.
Once the bonus round in the King Tusk slot is triggered, you receive ten free spins, as well as the opportunity to select one of three exciting special features:
Elephant Stampede – two of the five reels become wild reels;
Elephants Gone Wild – all three elephants symbols act as wilds for the duration of the feature;
Elephant Dance – with each free spin, a new wild symbol is added to the reels, and each wild is held in position for five consecutive spins.
