Legends of Africa from Microgaming: Slot Review - join us on a trip to the Savannah

GamingRevolution has reviewed one of Microgaming's latest slot additions called Legends of Africa. The online game is reminiscent of a traditional fruit machine in terms of its payline system and bonus feature, which primarily includes free spins.

Microgaming recently released its Legends of Africa slot game, for both for mobile and desktop. 30 paylines are available on 5 reels, which are organised in a type of diamond-shaped row combination.
Few will be surprised to hear that Legends of Africa is also available in brick-and-mortar casinos. If you haven't yet had the chance to play the slot game, traditional is a good way to describe the game.

Special Features

The slot game, Legends of Africa, comes with several bonus features. Among them is a bonus game, which is activated when a player receives at least three African mask symbols on reels two, three and four. Before the bonus game launches, the player is asked to take his pick from the masks, and this mask will reveal the number of free-spins awarded.

On the lower end, a player could get 10 free spins. These free spins come, however, with a three-time multiplier. Next, a player may be awarded 12 free spins. This also means that the combinations that show on reel one contain identical stacked symbols after each spin. On the higher end, a player may receive 15 free spins, accompanied by an extra wild symbol. In sum, all not bad at all.

While this is sure the most profitable little extra feature in the game, Microgaming’s Legends of Africa also comes with a so-called mystery position. This results in a symbol being randomly replaced before the reel even comes to a halt. Pretty exciting!

Theme and Graphics

The background that greets players is - unsurprisingly - the African savannah, and the general design closely follows other popular Microgaming slot machines.
The design, while rather well-executed, does not feature funky 3-D images. This, however, only adds to the retro feel when playing this slot game.

Win lines, Payouts and Jackpots

Legends of Africa comes with 30 paylines, and is fairly classical in design. I tend to make use of the Autospin option. Simply, because the slot game is so simple. There is little need to make changes as you play. With fairly good, but not gigantic winnings, Legends of Africa is best played at a comfortable stake. Risk it, if you can afford to loose it.

Our Verdict on Legends of Africa

The online game certainly is more for fans of traditional slot machines. In Legends of Africa players will not find an innovative design or complex payline systems, instead, they find a slot game which is traditional but enchanting due to its bright - yet old-fashioned - graphic design. The warm colours in this slot game's design are a pleasant break from the dark themes Microgaming creates frequently.
