Win-A-Beest Slot Review

Win-A-Beest: Demo

Head to the virtual African plains and enjoy a wild slots safari courtesy of Play ‘n GO and their Win-A-Beest slot. The base game uses a 5 reel, 256 ways to win game engine but this can expand to 1,024 ways to win when you trigger the features. The randomly triggered Beest Mode feature is a free spin where the reels are made up of blanks, wilds, scatters and the top paying wildebeest symbols. This can lead to Beest Mode free spins if you land 3 or more scatters. In our detailed Win-A-Beest review, you’ll also find out about the second feature, the Stampeding Spins feature. These offer free spins on an expanded 1,024 ways to win grid. Let’s have a closer look.

Win-A-Beest Theme – classy recreation of the African plains

Win-A-Beest slot base game

The recreation of the African Savannah is very nicely done. The symbols here are superbly drawn and packed full of detail. It’s a very well-crafted slot visually.

With grassy plains in the background, the wooden reels are made up of lower value playing card symbols as well as an elephant, a lion, a rhino and a leopard. The most lucrative symbol is the wildebeest symbol. This pays 0.5, 1, 2 or 5 x your total bet if you land 2, 3, 4 or 5 in combination.

The Win-A-Beest slot comes with 2 wilds. They both substitute for all the standard symbols when they make up part of a winning combination. Land a winner that includes the multiplier wild and the payout gets a 2x boost and is doubled.

Play ‘n GO has created a Win-A-Beest mobile slot. The visuals are as impressive if playing on your mobile as they are on a desktop machine. The gameplay is identical too. It’s a very playable combination.

Win-A-Beest Slot RTP & Info 

The Win-A-Beest slot base game uses an unusual 2x4x4x4x2 engine with 256 ways to win. This transforms into a more standard 5 reel, 4 row, 1,024 ways to win machine in the bonus features.

Bet levels start at 10p per spin for the small stakes players, rising to a maximum of £100 per spin for the super high rollers. The usual Play ‘n GO autoplay setting are available here. There’s also an option to speed things up and play in turbo mode if required. Just click on the lightning bolt to activate. As usual for a Play ‘n GO slot game, the Win-A-Beest game interface is intuitive and very simple to use.

The Win-A-Beest RTP is 96.12% which is about in the middle of the pack as far as return to player rates are concerned. Play ‘n GO slots are often super volatile. They’ve toned things down a bit here. The Win-A-Beest volatility sits squarely in the medium range.

However, don’t let that put you off as the maximum payout can reach 10,240 x your total bet on each spin or free spin. Find out how below in the bonus features sections.

Win-A-Beest Bonus Features

There are a trio of potentially exciting features on offer in Win-A-Beest. Beest Mode is a single spin with limited symbols on the reels while the Beest Mode Spins feature is the same but for many free spins. Lastly, the Stampeding Spins delivers free spins on an expanded machine.

Beest Mode feature

The Beest Mode feature can trigger at random on any spin. The reels expand from their standard 256 up to 1,024 ways to win. A free spin follows where the reels are made up of blank, the most lucrative Wildebeest, standard wild, multiplier wild and scatter symbols.

Beest Mode Spins feature

Land 3 or more African Savannah at sunset scatters in Beest Mode and you’ll trigger the Beest Mode Spins feature. You’ll then receive a 5 x bet prize and the following number of free spins:

  • 3 scatters = 4 free spins
  • 4 scatters = 6 free spins
  • 5 scatters = 8 free spins

Using the Beest Mode set up, this means a 1,024 ways to win machine and the limited range of symbols. Re-triggers are possible too.  Landing 3, 4 or 5 scatters will get you another 4, 6 or 8 Beest Mode spins. There’s no limit to how many you can play with.

Stampeding Spins feature

The Stampeding Spins feature is triggered by landing 3 or more scatters in the base game (not in Beest Mode). Your reward here is a payout equal to 5x your total bet as well as:

  • 3 scatters = 8 free spins
  • 4 scatters = 12 free spins
  • 5 scatters = 20 free spins

These feature all the standard symbols and are played on the fully expanded 5 reel, 4 row, 1,024 ways to win reel grid. Unlimited retriggers are possible here too.

Win-A-Beest Thoughts/Opinion – this safari offers something different thanks to Beest Mode

We’ve taken many a virtual slot safari. The Win-A-Beest slot offers something a little different in terms of gameplay at least. The Beest Mode Spins and the Stampeding free spins on expanded reels are a tidy enough combination though.

As usual for a Play ‘n GO slot, the design impresses. It’s very easy on the eye and nicely illustrated. It might not be quite volatile enough for some tastes but the medium variance should be fine for most. The bigger wins will come from the 2x wild multiplier as this can lead to 10,240 x bet wins on each spin or free spin.

Overall, this African adventure works rather well. If you like the wild animal theme, it’s a game worth investigating. Another option includes the Buffalo Blitz 2 slot from Playtech which has a similar theme and also the potential for huge wins.
