Africa’s most beautiful plains and its majestic wildlife provided the inspiration for a new online pokie from the award-winning provider NetEnt. Serengeti Kings has 5 reels, 26 fixed lines, and bonus features that are likely to attract attention.
Wild symbols, Multipliers, and Free Spins are among the casino game’s more familiar features. It does, however, incorporate 2 different modes themed as day and night. According to the provider’s director of games, Bryan Upton, Serengeti Kings brings together exciting new state-based mechanics with the exquisite graphics for which the provider is famous.
Upton added that another element of the new online pokie, namely configurable options to purchase Free Spins, was added in response to requests from online gambling regulators. He also said that NetEnt was particularly excited about the game and expect it to be a hit with players.
A Closer Look
Africa’s most famous plain is dominated by lions and panthers, so the animals naturally play a role in Serengeti Kings. One rules the day, the other holds sway at night, but both are at the top of the pay table, and they are connected to the special features.
The other animals on the reels include hyaenas, giraffes, zebras, and meerkats. The remaining symbols are comprised of the high playing cards from 9 through Ace, and there are Wild and Free Spins symbols.
Lion and Panther Spins
According to the provider, when Serengeti Kings launches, Lions Spins is active. The mode’s 12 spins are set during the day, and if any lion or panther symbols land, they will be added to the relevant counter next to the reels.
12 Panther Spins, set at night, will begin automatically when the Lion Spins are finished. If big cat symbols land during the mode, they will also be added to the counters next to the reels.
On the 12th spin of either mode, the Lion or Panther feature will be triggered. All collected lions and panthers will be added to the Serengeti Kings reels randomly.
If they cover like symbols or lions cover panthers or vice versa, they will transform into a Wild symbol that can substitute for the standard reel symbols. If they land on a Wild, they will add a Multiplier to the symbol. The Multiplier will increase payouts the Wild participates in.
3 or more Scatters are the key to 12 Free Spins, during which lion and panther symbols will be collected. They will be added to the reels on the last Free Spin.
All in all, this new casino game is set to be yet another smash hit for developers, and players can join in the fun on desktop or mobile.
