Elk Studios bring you another big and powerful slot game in this Zulu Gold slot with a top win of 10,000x your bet.
Set in the middle of South Africa, you’ve been invited as an intrepid explorer to face the Zulu Warriors and the wild of the continents.
The lower-paid symbols are symbols of animals, followed by 4 letters, and then the buffalo, the rhino, the elephant and the explorer. It’s basically taking the theme of the Book of Dead slot or any of the Rich Wilde games, but set in Africa.
All in all, this is a beautiful slot theme, made all the more beautiful by the fact that any of the symbols can come in blocks from 1x to 5×5, or even as stacks of 2 or 3 symbols high.
The Zulu Gold mobile slot has avalanching wins, meaning that on every win your symbols explode, and more come tumbling down. But unlike other online slots such as the Gonzo’s Quest slot or Pixies of the Forest 2, here you get an extra row of symbols on top.
5 rows give you 15,625 ways to win. Keep getting wins and you’ll get the maximum of 8 rows with 262,144 ways to win.
That’s why you need those Mega Symbols and those Stacked Wilds; you need to get multiple wins from left to right to make the paytable worth your while.
This is helped by getting 3 wild symbols; a normal wild, a charged wild that stays on screen for up to 3 wins in an avalanche, and the wild walker.
The Wild Walker spreads around randomly for up to 4 symbols all around.
On the downside the wins are hard to find in the base game, coming slowly or at best 10x or 20x your bet. You can find more, but it’s hard.
The bright side is that things get more interesting in the free spins bonus because 3 scatters trigger 10 free spins. Only this time around the number of rows doesn’t reset between spins.
So getting enough wins to open up all 8 rows is not just possible, but very likely. Add that you get multiplier symbols as you spin, and you suddenly see how you get to that top win of 10,000x your bet.

Avalanching and Increasing Reels: On any win, the winning symbols will explode, and more will come tumbling from above. You'll then get an extra row of symbols at the top.
Mega Symbols and Clearing Reels: All symbols, including the wild, can come either as a 1x1, a 2x2, a 3x3, or a 4x4 size symbol. When any symbol over 2x2 falls, they clear away any 1x1 symbols on their way down to the reels. Any other big symbols, wild walkers, charged wilds, multiplier, bonus, and wild symbols are not affected.
Zulu Stack: This is a stack of 2, 3, or 4 identical payout symbols that can drop on any spin. Basically random stacked symbols.
Wild: The wild symbol will substitute for any other symbols except the wild walker, the charged wild, and the bonus symbols.
Charged Wild: This is a 1x1 sized wild symbol with additional lives. If it contributes to a win, one life is spent. It stays on screen until no more avalanches are available or all its lives are spent. The wild usually has 3 lives.
Wild Walker: The wild walker symbol spins and moves around the screen giving you extra wild symbols - generally around 4. These wilds are sticky wilds for the duration of the avalanching wins.
Bonus and Free Spins: Three or more bonus symbols trigger the free drops or the free spins.
During the free spins, the number of rows after a win does not reset back to 4 rows but stays up to the level you've unlocked.
During this Zulu Gold slot bonus, you get multiplier symbols drop and when you get three in view, they are added to the total multiplier for all wins.
You can retrigger the bonus.
Africa gets a fun twist in this Zulu Gold slot machine which starts with 4095 ways to win up to an impressive 262,144 ways - more than video slots like the Break Da Bank Again Megaways or King of Cats review.
It's a little slow going, but what do you expect from a high variance game? Let's not forget that Zulu Gold has an RTP of 95% as it calmly waits for the free spins to come along and really make the paytable pop with those multipliers.
A little frustrating at times, but when this slot gets going and you see those reels get bigger and bigger and bigger, it's as exciting as seeing a jackpot wheel.
