Themes & design in African Spirit
Powered by Booongo, African Spirit turns out to be a slot with a lot to like about it and one that the developers have clearly put a lot of effort into. The visuals and audios are particularly solid, with wooden carvings and terrifying masks appearing as icons on the reels. The backdrop also contains two bonfires flanking the reels with yellow flames illuminating some of the night skies.
The audios contain the usual plethora of sounds from Africa. The soundtrack all begins reasonably well before meandering into some irritating tunes. Player’s may wish to think about muting the audios as after a while of playing, they begin to distract you from the gameplay itself. The animations are better though, more subtle yet totally enhance the gameplay.
Symbols and playing African Spirit
African Spirit has twenty paylines and with the betting options ranging between 0.01 and 5, meaning that the highest win payout a player can receive is 100.
Impatient players will be able to spin the reels faster by selecting the autoplay function, where up to 1,000 turns can be done automatically once the max bet stake has been set.
African Spirit has three icons that each has a unique role to perform within the gameplay. There is the scatter symbol, that appears in the form of a blue mask of an antelope’s horned skull. It activates the free spins rounds with three scatter symbols in view and will fall on the first, third and fifth reels. The wild symbol is the leopard with beaming red eyes and lands only on the second to fifth reels and will replace for all other icons except the scatter and the spear icon.
The spear icon is a bonus symbol that will activate a respin whenever it appears in its designated place – the fifth reel. When this occurs, accompanied by a wild icon, players will get their spin. Between four and eight wilds can randomly appear in the base game on the second to fifth reels to produce some super wins. Guaranteed scatter icons can appear on the reels during the primary game to trigger free spins, provided specific conditions have been met.
African Spirit is an elegant new game from Booongo, one whose only irritating point is its audios. With three icons coming into play to generate free spins and other wins, there is plenty of variety in this game. The game icons are well designed, the fires roar menacingly, and the whole gameplay has an eerie vibe to it. African Spirit is a fine looking slot for gamers to play.
