Serengeti Kings is where slots meet safari in this five-reel slot with 25 paylines. This is a fantastic game that takes all the crisp graphics, fun features and fine functionality you’d expect from NetEnt and drops them in the middle of one of the most iconic regions on the planet.
We’re big fans of this game, and we think you will be too, read on to see why the Serengeti Kings slot should be the next on your list here at Bucky Bingo. Not only does this game have a wide variety of wildlife to enjoy, but it also has just as good a range of bonus features to be enjoyed too – putting its own twist on many popular slot staples. Here’s how they look:
The Serengeti Kings slot machine’s standout feature begins as soon as you start spinning. You will start with 12 lions spins, followed by 12 panther spins. Landing these symbols will add to your total collection, and a number on either the right or the left will increase. On the 12th spin, all symbols collected will be added to the reels, and your new payout is calculated.
Furthermore, if either one of the lion or panther symbols lands on top of one another, this will trigger the games wild, and any matching symbols that are stacked will also earn you a multiplier. It is possible to be awarded more than one multiplier on a winning line.
These modes are quite unique and are made visually attractive too, by the fact that the lion spins take place in the day, but the panther reels turn to night. Either way, the multipliers reset, and the process begins again once the 12 spins are over in each mode.
Like any good slot, Serengeti Kings also comes with a free spin feature, triggered by landing three or more of the half sun/half moon scatters anywhere on the reels. However, interestingly, the amount of scatters you match won’t determine your total amount of spins – you’ll always get 12 free spins – but they will decide how many symbols you start the feature with.
Landing three will get you into the free spins feature with your 12 spins; four and you will start with the number of lion and panther symbols you have already collected but land the maximum of five, and you will be gifted five more symbols to add to your total.
On your final free spin, all symbols you have collected will be randomly added to the reels, hoping to create as many wilds and multipliers as possible. Your total payout will be calculated at the end of the round, but you can earn more free spins by gathering more lion and panther symbols to keep the bonus round going.
Last but not least, this game also offers the rare opportunity to buy free spins. We know this might sound like an oxymoron at first, but bear with us. What this means is that rather than merely spending coins one turn at a time, or if you’re struggling to land the right amount scatters to trigger free spins organically, you pay some of your coins to go straight into the free spins feature with up to five scatters.
It’s an excellent option for mixing up the gameplay and breaking up sessions in the base game. However, this feature isn’t available to players in the UK (under the UK’s Gambling Commission regulations). But for those of you eligible, the Serengeti Kings RTP increase to 96.7% in this round and you can expect between 50 and 240x times your total stake, depending on how many scatters you have.
As you would expect from a NetEnt game, this slot looks gorgeous and brings it’s a swathe of animal-based symbols to life. The switch from day to night was one of our favourite moments, but the graphics are excellent from start to finish.
In terms of symbols, as well as your standard card values (all presented in a fun animal pattern), you, of course, have various animals. You will see meerkats, zebras, giraffes, hyenas and, of course, the kings of this slot, the lion and panther symbols – the most valuable on the board at five times your stake.
However, you also have your wild symbol, which not only substitutes other standard symbols but can also be worth up 50x stake if you land five of them on a full payline.
