Although inspired by an African theme, Zulu Gold slot is unlike any other game on the subject. Thus, Elk Studios does not take the easy way out with a common scheme of Serengeti plains or dry, sparsely populated savannah as one might see anywhere else. On the contrary, the designers have made a point of focusing on the uniqueness of the script and the settings, which leads us to the discovery of the Bantu people of Southern Africa in regions of the world that have not yet been explored.
The interface features 6 reels with variable rows from 4 to 8, with winning paths that expand from 4096 to 262144 when the game is pushed to its maximum.
The expedition to Lesotho begins by selecting a bet value that you can vary with each spin from $0.20 to $100 per spin. Zulu Gold is very volatile and its RTP is 95% which is not its best quality, but winning combinations will still allow access to prizes of up to 10,000x the bet. The Kane adventurer symbol pays the best with a prize of 5x the bet at the maximum, followed by the elephant, rhino, buffalo and various African tribal motifs as weak symbols.
First of all, the Avalanche feature extends the duration of a winning spin by destroying all the symbols that are part of that combination. A space is cleared and then filled with new symbols from above, giving you another chance to trigger a win while adding an additional row and even more active winning paths at the same time. The avalanche continues as long as new wins are created and the interface expands to hold a maximum of 8 rows and 262144 winning paths.
Zulu Stacks & Big Symbols
Symbols can take on special shapes, thanks in part to the Zulu Stark and Big Symbols that can appear in expanded form or in 2×2, 3×3 or 4×4 size to form wins more easily.
Different types of wilds
There are 3 types of wilds in Zulu Gold.
- The Classic Wild substitutes for all other symbols except the special ones.
- The Wild Walker is a Wild that can travel around the grid and leave a trail of random Wilds in its path that will persist between each avalanche.
- The Charged Wild is equally exciting and is loaded with extra lives that are consumed only when the symbol contributes to a winning combination.
Multiply Free Drops
Getting 3 or more bonus symbols will trigger the Multiply Free Drops Bonus and get you 15, 20 or 25 free spins depending on the number of triggering bonus symbols. The bonus features a progressive multiplier function that increases as the free spins progress. When 3 or more Multiply symbols are present on the view, they add their value to the total progressive multiplier.
The expedition begins instantly when the first spin is triggered so the avalanche sequences get us in the mood right away. We can count on the different Wilds and a multitude of special symbols capable of creating a surprise and propelling us towards an exceptional Free Drops session where the multipliers and the level of security can only lead us towards great rewards.
