The Africa XUp slot has 243 ways to win with an expanded wild and increasing multiplier of up to x25, giving you a top win of 30,000x your bet.
The two main symbols on your radar here are the X scatter and the shield wild. The wild expands to cover the whole reels, always a nice touch to any new video slot game.
This Africa XUp mobile slot is beautiful, you have the two warriors as the high-paying symbols, then the elephant, the rhino, and the buffalo. Then you have the Ace to 10 low-paying symbols following the paytable.
In truth, the paytable is a little weak. Even a 5 of a kind on the highest symbol will only get you about 5x your bet, but as you have 342 ways to win that make sense as you want stacks of wins over all payline, rather than one win on one payline.
Whenever you have two XUp symbols on the reel, you collect an X on the table to the left. One X will give you a 2x multiplier, collect 3X and you’ll get a 3x multiplier, whilst collecting 5X will give you a 4x multiplier, and so on.
23 X’s will give you a 25x multiplier on all your wins, and that’s when you’ll get the 30,000x your bet. And getting that in the base game is not impossible, namely because the multipliers only reset when you trigger the free spins.
This can make this Africa XUp slot game frustrating as you are just wishing and hoping to get to the top, but you rarely get to make it past the halfway line before the bonus games. But you do get the bonus games to make up for the disappointment.
Who knew the free spins bonus could make you feel deflated?
3 scatters will trigger 8 free spins. Only right now, the X’s will add +2 free spins to your total and also increase the multiplier. If you are lucky you triggered the free spins with a head start and the X’s have already built up.
But getting 23 Xs is no easy feat. You’ll be lucky to get beyond the 10x multiplier. The good news is even doubling the paytable makes it worth your while.
This Africa XUp slot is fun and at heart is just a video slot with big multipliers and big wilds. As long as you have some patience you’ll enjoy playing here.
If you love high variance slots such as the Jammin Jars 2 slot or the Wild Flowers slot, you’ll love this Microgaming game by Alchemy studios.

Expanding Wild: The Shield is the wild symbol and expands to fill the reel to create wins on all 243 ways to win.
XUp Feature: Landing 2 scatters gives you a XUp token collected on the left of the feature. This increases the total multiplier of any win.
If you manage to activate the 25x free spin multiplier in the base game, you will also trigger the free spin bonus.
But that's not the only way to get the free spins.
Scatters and Free Spins: 3 scatters trigger 8 free spins. During the free spins landing 2 scatter award 2 additional free spins. You trigger the bonus with the X-Up you've collected, and in the free spins, the X-Up comes more often.
Buy Bonus: You can trigger the free spins by buying the bonus. At the minimum bet of 0.30, you can buy:
The random multiplier could get you 1x or 25x starting multiplier. You just don't know.
The Africa XUp slot on mobile is a little over-complicated, but there's plenty here to love, including that top win of 30,000x your bet.
The expanded wild helps create wins, whilst the XUp symbol adds a flair of drama with those multipliers.
Even if they also add plenty of frustration when you rarely get above a 5x multiplier.
The free spins go some way towards rectifying that, as does the high RTP of 96.37%. All in all, a great addition to any Microgaming online casinos.
