Take A Lion’s Share of These Payouts

Bite into African Simba online pokies for roaring Wild lions and free spins with a triple multiplier. Win up to 30,000 coins in a single spin with 243 ways to win and an RTP of 95.2%.

Gameplay

African Simba is, you guessed it, a 5×3 reel African themed slot, with a roaring lion as both the main feature image and the Wild. The realistic graphics are stunning, depicting sub-Saharan African wilderness and brilliant sunsets. Unfortunately, the sound effects are terrible arcade machine sounds that don’t match the theme at all and, as usual, are where Novomatic typically falls down. So put your audio on silent and enjoy all the better points this slot has to offer: beautiful graphics, the 243 ways to win up to 30,000 coins and a sweet free spins bonus game.

The highest value base symbols here start with a giraffe, which pays up to 10,000 coins, followed by a buffalo, meerkats and a flamingo. There are also 6 lower value symbols, all represented by playing card icons that range from 9 to Ace. The Lion represents the Wild and only appears on the centre reels 2,3 and 4 and substitutes for all other symbols except the Mount Kilimanjaro scatter symbol.

There is also a double or nothing Gamble Feature, where you have to guess the colour of the mystery playing card to double your reel wins.

Special Features

The only really special feature in this slot is the 12 free spins, which is triggered when you get more than 3 Mount Kilimanjaro scatter symbols anywhere on the reels. The Free Spins also come with a triple multiplier on all wins, which really ups the payouts and means that if you get five giraffes in the free games, you end up with a super savage 30,000 coins, instead of the standard 10,000.

Verdict

This is a King among Novomatic slots, with realistic graphics of wildlife and beautiful scenery and a worthy free spins game that really pays out, despite the fairly low return rate of 95.2% RTP. Logically, this means that most of the big wins are in the free spins game, and not in the base game, which was our experience as well.
