Got on a wild safari in the African savannah on the slot from Playson for an encounter with some of the most gracious mammals on the planet. The Raging Rhino clone comes as well in a 6×4 format but has a different multiplier mechanic in the free spins round. It provides the chance to achieve pays on up to 31,104 ways and a win potential of up to 8,214x your bet on each free spin.
Mighty Africa is a video slot with six reels, four rows and 4,096 ways to win in the base game. This can increase to up to 31,104 ways in the free spins round. Pays are awarded for adjacent symbols from left to right. You can go on your safari on desktop or mobile devices from 0.25 to 100 credits. The RTP of this high variance game is set at a rather low 95.10%.
Graphics and Visuals
Open the game to find a serene scene from the vast savannah, the home of large herds of elephants, water buffalos and other gracious mammals. Playson went to great length to create an authentic slot with warm earth colours and elaborate graphics. The audio is a fitting mix of animal cries, a tribal flute soundtrack, reel noises as well as thumping sounds when scatters or big wins land. Teaser spins set off a set of drums in anticipation of the third scatter landing on the spin.
Naturally, the paytable incorporates a range of mammals that can be found in the African savannah. However, the low end starts with the usual card royals from 10 to A and is accompanied by leopards, water buffalos, crocodiles and rhinos at the high level. The top-paying symbol is the mighty elephant, appearing stacked at all times. Pays for a single six of a kind range from 2.4 to 8 times your stake
The wild is an intricate icon with a tribal pattern and the word itself across it, appearing on reels two to six only and performing the usual substitutions duties. In turn, the scatter is another intricate tile showing an elephant family at sunrise.
Mighty Africa Free Spins Feature with Wild Splits
While you can score mega wins in the base game, thanks to the stacked elephant symbols, the big money on Mighty Africa is clearly in the free spins round. A special wild mechanic comes in to play when it lands on a free spin that will increase the ways to win.
Three, four, five or six scatters anywhere on the reels in one spin will trigger 8, 15, 25 and 50 free spins respectively, however, no coin wins are awarded. The free spins can be retriggered up to a maximum of 100 free spins.
This is the moment where the special wild mechanic will make a big difference to the winnings of a bonus round. Any wild landing on a free spin will trigger the Wild Split feature. The wild symbol will always split, leaving two or three wilds in its place and thus increasing the number of winning ways. Having wilds on reels two to six and all splitting into three will lead to the maximum number of ways to win which stands at a huge 31,104.
Is Mighty Africa a serious contender to all-time favourite Raging Rhino? It surely presents a good alternative with similar gameplay and win potential. However, the RTP is lower by nearly 1% compared to the original, thus you can expect less mega wins but they sure will happen.
