Developed exclusively for Microgaming by Slingshot Studios, this African-themed slot is a 5x3 reel, 243 ways to win game filled with monolithic stone beasts set against the African plains. Featuring Rolling Reels™ with a multiplier trail, Wild Blast™, stacked wilds, free spins, and the Wow Major jackpot, which seeds at €50,000, African Legends brings all the thrills of a safari straight to your screen. So, how do all these features combine to make African Legends such a great addition to the WowPot jackpot?
The tranquil Saharan setting illuminates with an electrifying glow as opulent gold icons appear across the grid. With a swelling soundtrack to announce its arrival… a Wild Blast™ is about to occur! Randomly triggered on any normal base game spin, Wild Blast™ has the potential to disrupt the play area and ignite win potential. When triggered, Wild Blast™ can award up to five wilds across the reels, making way for big wins and the chance for players to move further along the multiplier trail towards some seriously coveted rewards!
243 ways to win
This hugely popular, classic Microgaming format replaces paylines in slot games. Players don’t align winning symbols against set lines – matching symbols can land in any position on adjacent reels to ensure a winning combination! So, instead of having 10 set paylines, African Legends offers players 243 ways to win on each and every spin.
Rolling Reels™ with Multiplier trail
Each spin in African Legends offers a chance to trigger continuous wins with escalating rewards. Rolling Reels™ activates whenever a winning combination lands on the reels – the winning symbols will blast away as new symbols 'roll' down, bringing with them the prospect of landing more winning combinations on the same bet. African Legends features a unique trail coinciding with Rolling Reels™ in which extra rewards are given for consecutive wins. The first three consecutive wins offer an increasing win multiplier from 2x to 4x. Once players reach four consecutive rolls, they are awarded free spins with additional spins and growing multipliers, with up to 20 free spins and a 10x multiplier up for the taking.
At the end of the trail lies the biggest reward of all – the colossal Wow Major progressive jackpot.
After achieving four or more consecutive rolls, the African Legends free spins feature is awarded! Each free spins feature comes with its own win multiplier, meaning all wins within the feature will be multiplied up to 10x! Depending on the triggering spin, players can win 12 free spins with a 5x multiplier, 15 free spins with a 6x multiplier, 18 free spins with an 8x multiplier or a massive 20 free spins with a 10x multiplier.
African Legends harnesses the power and majesty of the African plains, transporting players to an adventure unlike any other. Magnificent African animals are represented as carved icons alongside highly stylised card suit symbols and golden wilds. Each symbol is highly ornate, giving the game an elevated and noble feel. The soft sun of the savannah explodes during the Wild Blast™ feature, illuminating the sky into brilliance. During free spins, the warm sun sets into twilight as clouds roll in for an electrifying thunderstorm bringing on huge win potential.
Whilst African titles remain a mainstay in casino lobbies, African Legends gives the space something different – a reverent homage to the great continent with its iconic animals represented as beautiful statues, and of course, the huge win potential of the title is sure to get hearts pumping alongside ever-present African melodies.
African Legends is the first title to offer a single tier of the WowPot jackpot as its top prize. The Wow Major seeds at an incredible €50,000 and has already awarded a number of six-figure payouts to date, with the biggest weighing in at €327,631.71* (13 January 2020). And just a week after launching, African Legends awarded its first top jackpot prize – a mammoth €188K+*. Since the introduction of the newly revamped WowPot, the Major tier has been triggered numerous times, becoming an increasingly attractive draw for the huge progressive prize.
African Legends also offers a unique progressive jackpot trigger. Whilst most jackpot games trigger randomly or via collection, players can trigger the Wow Major jackpot by reaching the end of the African Legends multiplier and free spins trail.
African Legends launched October 2020 and has already proven to be a fan favourite with its immersive gameplay. The multiplier trail, culminating in an absolutely massive payout of the Major tier of the WowPot jackpot, is set prominently above the reels, consistently reminding players of African Legends’ incredible win potential.
Welcome to the family, African Legends!
