Stacked Symbols and Mirrored Reels play out on the African Savannah
Grand Power of Africa slot machine takes you on a trip to Africa, where you’ll encounter tribesmen, toucans and the mightiest beast of all, the lion. The game features stacked symbols throughout, which will certainly enhance those big win opportunities. This all plays out under the heat of the midday sun.
The highlight of the game is the free spins bonus round. Here you’ll find those all-important big wins much easier to come by due to the unique mirrored reels – the left-hand side of the slot matches the right-hand side.
Action Stacked Symbols and 4-5-4-5-4 Reel Setup
The first thing you’ll notice when playing slot game Grand Power of Africa is the unusual reel set up. You’ll find that reels 1, 3 and 5 are four symbols high, while reels 2 and 4 each contain five symbols. This might seem irregular, but the reels are knitted together in a honeycomb shape, giving a very effective look.
During each spin you’ll find the ‘Action Stacked Symbols’ format in play on reels 2, 3 and 4. A number of adjacent positions on each of these reels will be filled with the same random symbol on each spin. This random symbol can be any in the game apart from the wild and the scatter.
The standard symbols in the game are a mix of African culture. You have a tribesman dressed in a native outfit and a traditional African ornament. A toucan, with its distinctive long beak sits on a branch and is perhaps the most eye-catching of the standard symbols. A purple butterfly adds some beauty to the reels.
At the low end of the pay table you’ll find the playing cards 9, 10, J, Q, K and A.
Let the Lions Go Wild
The wild symbol in this Konami designed slot is represented by the fearsome lion. This animal will substitute for any other in the game apart from the scatter, ensuring many additional wins. Land five wilds in a row and you’ll be guaranteed the largest pay out in the game.
Free Spins Feature with Mirrored Reels
The final symbol in the game shows an image of the African Savannah. The sun looms large in the symbols and you can see the silhouettes of a giraffe and an elephant grazing in front of the sun. You’ll enter the free spins feature when you land 3 or more scatters across any of the reels. Land the minimum 3 scatters and you’ll be awarded 10 free spins. This increases to 15 free spins for four scatters, while the maximum five scatters win you 25 free spins.
During the free spins you’ll see a small Disney-like mirror symbol appear above the reels – this signifying the ‘Mirrored Reels’ format. Now, reels 1 and 5 will spin at the same time and reveal exactly the same symbols. Reels 2 and 4 will also have matching spins. This will ensure that the right-hand side of the reels will be an exact mirror-image of the left-hand side. The only reel which spins independently during the feature is reel 3.
The free spins can be retriggered too. Land 3, 4 or 5 scatters and 10, 15 or 25 spins will be added to your existing total.
Grand Power of Africa Savannah Design
During the base game of this African themed slot the backdrop shows a bright blue sky, with greenery all around. Head into the feature round and the setting changes to inside of a theatre, where the mirrored reels are setup to give an act of illusion. While the small Disney-style mirror above the reels doesn’t fit in with the African theme at all, he does add some character to the game.
The reels have a pale blue backing, with each of the symbols having a hexagonal shape. The symbols themselves can look a little basic, especially with a number of playing card letters and numbers on reels. However, you’ll find some nice animation with the scatter and the wild. And check out the herd od zebra which run across the screen when you land the feature too.
