Experience the beauty of Africa in an all-new online pokies that will take you on a journey filled with orange clad skies and gorgeous bushes, while marvelling at some of nature’s finest creatures. Now available to play in New Zealand, African Quest™, as the name suggests, pays homage to the exotic African continent, all while giving gaming enthusiasts access to innovative features that include the nifty 1024 Ways to Win game mechanic. Designed by Microgaming in collaboration with independent studio partner Triple Edge, this pokies game offers incredible graphics, and is playable across most PC, laptop, mobile and tablet devices. Offering gorgeous colours that allow players to harness the essence of Africa, this online and mobile pokies game is packed with a lot of promise. Let’s take a closer look at what you can expect when taking it for a spin.
An African safari is not complete without some wild animals. And during your virtual safari on African Quest™, you could spot elephants, rhinos, giraffes, zebras and, of course, lions. Be sure to keep an eye out for any lion icons, as these are the most rewarding, paying up to 7.50 times your stake for five on a payline. You’ll also find the traditional low value playing card icons: A, K, Q, J, 10 and 9. The acacia tree represents the game’s Wild, and can substitute all symbols, apart from the Scatter. The Wild icon can appear on the second, third and fourth reels. The gold medallion with the African continent on it represents the game’s Scatter, and pays in any position. What’s more, apart from its beautifully designed symbols and gorgeous colours, African Quest™ also offers some rewarding bonus features, which work as follows.
Players can benefit from a Free Spins bonus, activated upon landing three or more Scatters anywhere on the reels. At the beginning of the Free Spins round, players will be required to select their preferred Free Spins option. In addition, three or more Scatters during the Free Spins bonus will retrigger the Free Spins bonus, while two Scatters award additional spins. Wilds triggered during Free Spins will award random Multipliers, which will be determined by the Free Spins option initially selected.
Players can also select to activate the Respin feature, at an additional cost. After a base spin concludes, players can choose to Respin a reel in the hopes of triggering a winning combination. Players can Respin one reel at a time, and only wins that included the reels that were respun will be paid. This feature is known as Hyperspins™and is one of Microgaming’s many pokies’ innovations that make playing all the more unique and rewarding.
African Quest is rated as a high volatility pokie, which means larger wins are up for grabs, but the game pays out less often. Volatility can also be equated to risk, so you may have to take some risk, but the rewards will be worth it! The RTP is a very generous 96.02% and climbs all the way up to 96.52% when the Respin feature is in play. The RTP theoretically indicates how often a game pays out for every 100 bet, and the higher it is, the better!
This African themed pokie is also designed to suit all players bankrolls and has a massive wagering range. Bets can be placed for as little as 0.50 per spin, and go all the way up to 250.
JackpotCity is the place to be if you find yourself in New Zealand, or anywhere else in the world, and are looking for a wide range of online pokies games from Microgaming. And the good news is that this powerhouse has just added African Quest™ to its catalogue, giving you access to a virtual paradise with just the tap or click of a button!
