Deep in the planes of Africa, there tells a legend of a 2×2 Gaming slot machine that can turn any symbol on it’s reels into a scatter. How much truth is there to this tale?
With it’s 2x3x5x3x2 diamond reels set up, you’d expect this Legends of Africa mobile slot to have a huge variety of ways to win, much like the famous MegaJackpots Siberian Storm game.
But no, 30 paylines is all you get, and yet the game play doesn’t suffer because of it. In fact it allows for a huge betting range, starting from 0.30 a spin, all the way to 120 and almost every increment in between.
A great video slot for strategic players who like to slowly increase their bet as they win.
We started spinning with no sound, just watching TV one night, and found it… pretty boring actually. And we got a few nice wins in that round.
So we decided to give it our full attention one night, and realised that half the joy is in the sounds, which with the African bongos, bring this Legends of Africa slot from fairly generic, to as good looking as the likes of Williams Raging Rhino.
It’s ultra realistic rather than goofy, and with its setting sun in the background, rather beautiful.
The first is the free spin feature in this Legends of Africa slot machine, which don’t come often, but when they do have the added thrill that you don’t quite know what you are going to get.
Either you get 3x multiplier, or a full stack of symbols on reels 1, or extra random wilds – each come with their own potential chance of big wins, and bring a nice surprise element to the bonus games.
But it’s the any ways pays feature that bring the real thrill in the base game, as at any point if you get a full stack of symbols on reel 1 and 5, you’ll turn that symbol into a scatter, and we’ve seen some, if not legendary, certainly memorable wins from this feature.
We doubt the Legends of Africa video slot will change the way you play, but it’s fun enough for something different on a Saturday night.

Wild Symbol: The African night landscape is the wild symbol and replaces all other symbols except the mask bonus scatter.
Any Way Blast Feature: Whenever the same symbols appear on reel 1 and 5, that symbol now pays 'any ways' - ie. like a scatter, so every combination pays. You can win up to 144x the natural pay of the full stacked symbol.
If a natural pay can't be formed then a consolation prize of 5x your bet per line will be awarded.
Scatters and Free Spins: 3 mask symbols on reels 2, 3 and 4 trigger the free spin bonus. Here you'll randomly pick from one of 3 options, and randomly win either:
We like option 2 when we can get it, as we suspect the big wins lie here. But, having played all three, we've many a times walked away with anything from 5x to 50x our bet, so not always the most reliable feature.
A fun and easy playing mobile machine that with a couple of unusual bonus game, provide a good balance of small wins to see you through till the occasional big win.
The Legends of Africa mobile slot isn't revolutionary, but it's pretty, has some great sounds, and makes a nice change from the cartoony style African slots like Super Safari.
