African Quest Video Slot Review

African Quest: Demo

Hope to track down a big beast of a payday in African Quest, a 5 reel, 1,024 ways to win video slot from Microgaming. This trek comes with some potentially wild extras. Trigger the bonus round and you’ll have the pick of 3 different free spin and wild multiplier combinations. Opt for the most volatile of the 3 and wild multipliers can send payouts soaring by up to 64x. Look out too for the top paying lion symbol which spins in stacked formation. You’ll also have the chance to pay and re-spin a reel if you fancy having a second bite at trying to trigger the feature. Play on all devices from between 10p and £15 per spin.

Head to the savannah

The grasslands of Africa are the setting in the African Quest game. On the reels you’ll see African-style A to 9 symbols alongside a zebra, giraffe, rhino and elephant. Kubwa the lion is the most rewarding symbol, paying 0.5, 1.2, 2.5 or 7.5 times your bet if you land 2, 3, 4 or 5 in combination. Kubwa spins in 2 and 3-high stacks which can create some top combinations. There’s also a wild that can land on the middle 3 reels only.

Pay to respin

If you’ve just missed out on triggering the Free Spins feature (more info below) or you’ve got a good stack of lions in position, you’ll be able to pay and spin 1 reel again. The price is displayed on each reel.

Free spins – 3 options

Land 3, 4 or 5 scatters on the same spin to activate the Free Spins feature. You’ll first pocket an award of 2, 10 or 20 times your total bet. You’ll then have the choice of 3 free spin rounds. Each one offers a different combination of free games and wild multipliers:

  • Option 1: 5, 10 or 15 free spins with 3x and 4x wild multipliers
  • Option 2: 8, 15 or 20 free spins with 2x and 3x wild multipliers
  • Option 3: 15, 20 or 40 free spins with 1x and 2x wild multipliers

The number of free spins you’ll receive is determined by how many scatters were present on the triggering spin. If you opted for option 2 and triggered the feature with 4 scatters, you’d play 15 free spins with 2x and 3x wild multipliers in play.

Landing 2 scatters in any round results in a re-trigger and an extra 3, 5 or 6 free spins (depending on which option you’ve chosen). 3 or more scatters delivers a full re-trigger meaning up to 80 free spins (for option 3).

Wild multipliers

Central to the action in the free spins are the wild multipliers. Just like in the base game, these can only land on reels 2, 3 and 4. Hit more than 1 of them on the same spin and the multipliers are combined. A 2x plus a 3x wild delivers a 6x boost. The ideal scenario is a hat-trick of 4x multipliers which boosts the payout by 64x!

A volatile safari

Hunting for a big jackpot in the African Quest slot can be a risky proposition for your bankroll. It’s easy to get sucked in and pay for plenty of re-spins. The free spins can be well worth hitting though. If you like high risk but potentially high reward action, then choose option 1 where the big wild multipliers can really get things moving.

With an RTP of 96.52%, this high variance game can pay up to 5,600 x bet on each free spin. If you like the safari theme, then the simple but volatile African Quest is a game to consider. If you want safari action and life-changing wins, Microgaming’s iconic Mega Moolah jackpot slot can pay jackpots well into the millions.
