Roaming Reels Slot – Review of African Plains Themed Slot
Roaming Reels is a slot based on the roaming that takes place on African plains and it was developed by Ainsworth. The symbols in this game include zebras, gazelles, and lions. Like with a lot of other Ainsworth slots, it has the feeling of a land-based slot that made a transition to the internet world. The production in this game is high quality and pretty simple. Not only is it high quality and pretty simple, but it is also solid. This game does contain a free spins game and stacked wilds which makes it stand out from a lot of other games.
When it comes to detail, not that many slots touch this one. Even the drawings in the graphics are high quality. The lions look right at the player on the screen and it is very impressive. There are a lot of nice aspects of this game. One nice touch of this game is that the horns of the gazelle overlaps the reel. This adds depth to the visuals. The lion has a roar whenever it is part of a win. Its roar is very impressive.
When it comes to the sounds, it is mostly classic Ainsworth clicks and winning combination tunes. Once the feature gets triggered, you will then hear a background soundtrack and it adds intensity to the game.
In the free spins round, nothing unusual really happens. However, it can be retriggered. When it gets retriggered, you will get a longer bonus round and it does contain a special pay-out for paw print symbols as well.
The Setup and Gameplay- You have 1, 20, 45, or 50 win lines to choose. Since there are stacked wilds that can cover all 3 reels at one time, it is best to play all 50 lines and make adjustments to your coin size and match them. Spins go from 1c for each line all the way up to $12.50. This makes the range 50c to $625 for 50 lines.
Every time you receive a win, you are given the option to gamble on the flip of a playing card. If you do not want to do this, then just spin instead. Also, there is an auto-play option.
The wild in this game are the lions. There is a chance you will get a lot of them covering the reels. This will create multiple wins. For lions, there are not any separate payments. Simply, they align with the regular symbols in order to finish off wins. If you land 5 lions, you will get the highest payout which is 1000 coins and that is the equivalent of landing 5 Africa symbols.
Other regular symbols in this game are animals. They are gazelle, zebra, and ostrich, they give out 300, 200, and 200 respectively. The paw print and playing card symbols give out 100 for landing 5 and they take up a lot of the smaller wins in this slot game.
The scatter is the final symbol of the game which is the African sunset. This sunset has a double-role. Which means that they pay a scatter prize and start up the free spins bonus. Regardless of where they are at on the reels, scatter prizes pay out for the amount of symbols. For landing five, you will receive 100x the total spin. Four will get you 10x the amount. Landing three will get you 2x the total spin. In addition to that landing 5, 4, or 3 sunset symbols will get you 20, 12, or 8 free spins respectively.
The Free Spins- The differences between the free spins and main game are small. Those differences include more paw prints, more stacked wilds on the center reels, and darker background colors. If you land three paw prints on a line when the bonus round is occurring, then you will receive 20x the bet that started up the bonus game. This bonus can also be retriggered. However it is only retriggered for five more spins at a time and by landing an additional 3 more sunsets. The total spins you have will be seen on the bottom right of the reels while they are gathering together. There will also be a pop up at the end of the game and it will show you how much you have won.
Final Thoughts About The Game- There are not many slots out there currently on the market that should be considered lavish, but however this slot fits the term. The great thing about this game is that it is not expensive to play. Its detail and graphics are in such high quality and there are not many distractions that occur during this slot game. Even the sounds of the lion roaring is perfect. If you like playing slots that do not have gimmicks, then this is perfect for you.
