Microgaming bring you an adventure in the wilds of Africa, with that beauty of the wild, the elephant. Watch them in their natural habitat as you strive to win some serious cash, play alongside some awesome graphics and a thought-provoking soundtrack.
Presented over the standard 5 x 3 setup with an average 25 paylines, this safari-styled slot, King Tusk, is available to play with ease across your devices from as little as 0.30 EUR to 65 EUR or Bitcoin equivalent per spin. Wild reels and a massive three free spins features, along with some nice wild feature additions make this one a slot to reckon with.
Looks like a wild time
The way King Tusk looks has a lot to do with Microgaming’s beautiful obsession with making all of what comes out of their stable look stunning. It doesn’t seem to matter how simple the slot, there is still extra care taken with the visuals.
Enjoy watching these majestic creatures in their natural habitat, put together with stunning details and with an artistic flair rarely seen in the online slots world. Lower value symbols consist of the obligatory playing card rack of 9 to Ace, along with the higher value symbols that are more relevant to the theme.
These high-value symbols consist of pottery filled with gold coins, a family of elephants, as well as King Tusk himself as the wild. The wild in the game will substitute for all other symbols to form wins, except for the scatter as is to be expected. The wild may also expand at random, forming a wild reel during any base game spin.
Not just one, but three free spins features
The headline news here is that gorgeous trio of free spins features. Triggered by getting three King Tusk logo scatters across the reels, simply choose between the three free spins features that will be offered to you. Each of these features starts with 10 free spins, but every one of them has its own quirks. We shall run through them below just briefly:
Elephants Gone Wild
Choose this and eleven elephant symbols become wilds during the free spins feature.
With this choice, two reels will randomly become wild reels, and this will happen on each free spin that you receive.
Quite a nice touch, here a wild symbol will be added on each free spin, these will stay on the reels for five of the following spins.
And this is not the end of it. Any symbol may transform into a wild at random, apart from the scatter that is. Get three scatters at the same time across the reels during a free spin to retrigger the feature, with this comes a further 10 free spins, bringing the total to 20.
King Tusk is a cracking slot from Microgaming. The visuals and the ability to draw out some tasty wins really make it an attractive option. The theme is also pleasant and not so overdone. We found that the Elephants Gone Wild feature paid best, with a higher frequency of wins and higher value payouts as there will always be at least three elephants go wild - we know this as we’ve had this game running around the office for about a week!
The game is reportedly low variance, so maybe we were just lucky, but with a per spin max win of 992x your stake, if you’re feeling lucky this can add right up. Whichever way, your money won’t be wasted as, if nothing else, this game is worth the money just for the fun factor..
