Serengeti Kings is a 5-reel, 26-payline slot that accepts bets in the range 0.10 – £100 per spin. On this seemingly odd layout, you will land low-value Royals, as well as hyenas, zebras, giraffes, lions, and panthers with the latter being the top payer giving you 5x your stake worth for 5 OAK. The wild substitutes all standard symbols to help you land a win.
Lion Spins and Panther Spins Modes
The game starts with lion spins mode that takes place in the daytime, followed by panther spins that take place in the dark. The two modes are comprised of 12 spins each and all instances of panther or lion symbols that appear during these 12 spins are collected. At a later stage they will be randomly added to the reels on the 12th spin to increase your chances of landing a win.
Land at least 3 scatters to get 12 free spins. Depending on how many scatters you land, you get a different number of lion and panther symbols. On the 12th free spin, the collected symbols are dropped on the reels to form winning combinations.
Bonus Buy Feature
The Serengeti Kings is the first NetEnt slot to feature the Bonus Buy feature that provides you with instant access to the Free Spins round. The price is determined by the number of scatters you would like to appear on the reels. 3 scatters would cost you 58.7x your stake, but the price jumps to 358x your stake for 5 scatters, which is a but too high for the liking of the average player.
The idea behind the Serengeti King is interesting, but it has to fight a fierce battle against iconic slots such as the Raging Rhino and its Megaways version. The Serengeti Kings slot has a decent range of features although the price of the Bonus Buy feature for 5 scatters is simply ludicrous.
