A bright orange coloured African slot, be transported to a simpler time where beating drums and wild hogs bring you quick simple wins in the Bush Telegraph slot.
We had to admit that when we first loaded the Bush Telegraph mobile slot from Microgaming, we were not keen on the theme. It was too orange, too hard on the eyes, too… much. But at the same time, far too simple. We’ve seen it all before with bongo drums, wide eyed African critters and high card symbols.
And what’s with the name? Well, we found out for you because we doubt many people would know of the ancient African communication systems of beating drums to communicate in the vast African planes. As it is, it’s not so much ancient as a ‘popular legend’ which is double speak for “we are just guessing, but we think it’s true“.
And you thought reading about mobile slots wasn’t educational hey?
Because we can. And because the Bush Telegraph slot game felt eerily familiar. We’ve been here before. It hit fairly frequently, giving you small but decent wins. We even got a few decent 40x our bet during the base game which surprised us.
Then there was the bonus click me game which frequently showed up. Picking drums until you get about 10x to 30x our bet, enough to make this slots bonus feature worthwhile, but not the real draw of this video slot.
And then finally we got the Bush Telegraph bonus games and it clicked. 10 free spins, 3x multiplier and a maximum win of 112,500 in cash… this is basically a copy of the original Tomb Raider mobile slot. A mobile game we rated highly at four stars by the way. No wonder we were enjoying our play time on the Bush Telegraph slot machine.
So yes we’ve been here before, and generally we’d prefer to join the busty English woman for this type of low variance slot, but if you love the original and want a different slot theme or your luck isn’t working on one… might as well try it’s African sister.

Here you'll get to pick 3, 4 or 5 drums (depending on who many symbols you got respectively) for instant cash prizes. Usually you walk away with about 10x to 30x your bet if you only get 3 drums, 20x to 40x your bet on 4 drums and 30x to 60x your bet on 5 drums.
Not an original video slot in terms of game play or theme, but the Bush Telegraph mobile slot is still a fun copy that has all the things you loved about the original Tomb Raider machine.
One for when your luck isn't working on one and want similar game play but a change of scenery.
