If you have spent any amount of time playing online slot games, you will be aware that African Savannahs and the animals found upon them are a theme almost as popular as Ancient Egypt when it comes to this particular game type.
That makes it quite the surprise that developing giant Microgaming has decided that now, with a plethora of games on the same topic already in existence, was the right time to release their own effort.
About the slot
If you were expecting something different from the normal image of an African Savannah scene with animals roaming across it and then reels adorned with elephants and lower value symbols being played by playing cards, then you will be disappointed, because that is exactly what you will get here.
There is nothing new about the design or the concept of King Tusk visually, it looks great, that can’t be denied, the artwork is stunning, but its been done so many times before that it simply doesn’t matter how good it looks, it still feels boring.
There’s only one feature here, which may not seem like enough to make up for the derivative concept, and it may not be, but it is an excellent feature.
Three scatter symbols will bring you ten free spins, with a choice of mode from the following:
Elephants Gone Wild – All elephant symbols become wild for the length of the free spins feature
Elephant Stampede – Two reels will turn entirely wild on every spin
Elephant Dance – An extra wild will be added after every spin, and will then remain in place for five spins.
This is a strong free spins feature, one of the best we’ve seen in a while, but it’s also the only thing that is unique about the King Tusk slot, and may not be enough for most.
