The king of the Savannah is here, and he’s wilder than ever in this Microgaming King Tusk slot.
Animal themed slots are popular for a reason. Whether it’s the lush jungles of the east in the Wild Orient video slot, or the savage forest of the north like in the Silver Fang game, Microgaming have done them all.
So this King Tusk online slot doesn’t feel particularly unique or special – in fact it’s familiar symbols Ace to 10 and elephants are perfectly ordinary.
Maybe a little too ordinary, with little excitement brought about by the theme or the sounds.
The thing about Microgaming is that they’ve been doing slot machines for so long, they know what they are doing.
And this King Tusk slot game doesn’t break any rules; you’ve got wilds, scatters and free spins.
Granted, from time to time a stampede of Elephants will rush onto the reels, possibly adding 1 to 3 extra wilds onto the screen – but that’s just showmanship.
In all, this is an easy playing African game that doesn’t take a whole load of risk.
Namely because, unlike Playtech’s Justice League which makes you wait 6 bonus games to open up the board, you get a choice of three free spin bonus games straight away.
These give you a choice of wilds; from wild reels, to sticky wilds, or even extra wilds.
But without multipliers, the most you can win whilst playing on this Android and iPhone King Tusk mobile slot is around 1,000 times your bet.
This isn’t exactly a wild ride, more like a cosy safari to see your favourite mammoth mammal. Winnings during the free spins top maybe 30x your bet.
It is a fun ride though, especially if you want to stretch your budget. And if you like this, you’ll also love Tiger’s Eye game by the same provider.

Wild: The King Tusk slot logo is wild and replaces all other symbols on screen, except scatter, to create wins over these 5 reels and 25 paylines.
Scatter and Free Spins: Catch 3 Scatter King Tusk symbols anywhere on the reels and you'll trigger one of three bonus games.
You always start with 10 free spins, though these can be re-triggered if you get a further 3 scatters during the free games.
Personally we think the Dance Bonus is the best, but in reality they probably all have the same potential to pay out.
In a world where we get crazy creations like the Pink Elephants Thunderkick game, this King Tusk game feels a little unoriginal.
Still, if you are risk-averse and like easy playing mobile games, then this Microgaming slot is exactly what you are looking for.
Just don't expect wins to go much higher than around 100x your bet, and that's on a really amazing round.
