Playson is taking us all on a trip to the animal-rich plains of Africa, and if luck is on your side it could also be a cash-rich voyage for you! This slot, Mighty Africa, is a fairly new addition to UK Slot Games, having been launched in January 2019, and joins our range of UK slot games with an 'animals and nature' theme. It's a crowded market, with highly-regarded slots like Stampede and Great Rhino taking much of the attention and money, but Playson has a few tricks up their sleeve to make this one worth your time to check out.
You can tell Playson mean business by the way they've gone about the layout. The developer is generally best-known for their classic and traditional slots, having visited the 'fruits and jewels' theme many times successfully. With Mighty Africa, they've broken with that strategy, and they've thrown away the standard layout at the same time. This is a 6x4 layout, giving scope to offer a massive 4096 possible ways to win. The net result is that while large wins don't happen any more regularly than they do in other slots UK players will be familiar with, smaller ones do. A mid-range RTP of 95.10% sees to that.
We should also applaud Playson for the level of care and detail they've put into making sure that Mighty Africa looks good. The background is absolutely evocative of the African plains it sets out to represent. You can virtually feel the heat resonating from the golden frame, which hangs in the air in front of a scorched desert and a clear blue sky. Mighty Africa is a slot which was designed for the HD era, with great-looking animal symbols and smooth animations. It might not be as cinematic as other UK slots you'll play this year, but it's a strong look that suits the theme well.
You can't completely take all of the traditional elements out of a Playson product, and so we aren't surprised that the low-value symbols are represented by playing cards 9, 10, J, Q, K, and A. It probably wouldn't feel like a Playson slot without them! Sitting above them we have some of the wildlife Africa is known for; a jaguar, a crocodile, a buffalo, an elephant, and a rhino. We're slightly surprised that there isn't also a lion here - lions seem to be the staple of any game which uses the idea of a safari for inspiration - but the elephant is the top-ranking base game symbol, so we'll have to call him the King of this particular jungle.
You won't need us to point out the wild or scatter symbols to you - they're helpfully labeled with the words 'WILD' and 'SCATTER' to ensure you understand what they do on sight. The wild, as you'd hope for, substitutes for every other symbol apart from the scatter to help create winning lines. Both the wild and the scatter symbol have secondary uses when it comes to the bonus features this slot offers.
It’s hard for us to say definitively whether Wild Africa has just one bonus feature, or two. We’re going to say one - because it can only be triggered one way - but that one feature connects to another, as we’re about to explain to you.
Landing scatter symbols in sufficient numbers will trigger the feature. You’ll need at least three of them to start of the Free Spins that Wild Africa has in store for you, but ideally you’d like to see more of them, because the more you have, the more spins you’ll receive. You only get eight free spins for three scatters, but you’ll get almost double that (fifteen) for four, a big twenty-five if you’re able to land five at once, and if you’re lucky enough to see a scatter on all six reels on the same spin, that’s fifty free spins. Fifty is about as high as we’ve seen awarded from the base game of any UK slots title, so it has to be considered impressive. On top of that, you can even add more free spins while the feature is active by finding two or more scatters on a free spin, subject to a maximum of one hundred free spins in any one session.
The second bonus feature, which activates during your free spins, is Split Wild. When a wild symbol lands on a free spin, it will 'split,' taking on the value of a double wild or possibly even a treble wild, while still only taking up one space on the reels and rows. Thanks to this innovative system, there are 31,104 possible ways to win during free spins. Once in a blue moon, somebody will spin and land six treble wilds in a row, receiving a jackpot of x8214 their stake.
If you want to make money from your Playson-sponsored safari, you need to hang around and trigger the free spins. Although small wins are common in the base game, they’re not especially lucrative. Big money is hiding behind the bonus features. Because of the massive potential rewards that the split wilds win, we think this offering is more than a match for many of the other safari-themed titles we have here at UK Slot Games, but why not try them all and see for yourself?
Mighty Africa Developer - Playson
Earlier on, we mentioned that Playson are specialists when it comes to making classic and traditional UK slots, and we stand by that description. Playson makes some of the slots UK players who like traditional games love the most; Lucky Staxx: 40 Lines is a good example, as is Imperial Fruits: 5 Lines, and Thunder Reels. Just because they're good at classic slots doesn't mean they stick to them all the time though, as we've seen here. Vikings Fortune: Hold and Win, and Legend of Cleopatra online slot are other examples of them stepping outside of their usual genre and doing very well with it.
The Playson story started in Malta in 2012, but started gathering pace at speed after they were granted their first license to operate within the UK in 2015. They don’t appear to have wasted a single hour of a single day since then, with Playson offices now open in almost every significant gaming territory in the world, and almost a thousand staff working in those offices.
For a company that’s less than a decade old, what Playson have achieved so far is outstanding. Who knows what we’ll be saying about them by the end of the 2020s?
