The Wombat says: What with Play’n GO releasing 52 games in 2020 (one a week), we wondered how long it would take before they headed to the great plains of Africa. And now they have, in the Win A Beest slot!
And there’s me, just off my horse in the Golden Stallion slot – it’s all go at Wombat Towers.
Stampeding wildebeests are the theme of this game that comes with wild multipliers and 2 different types of Free Spins Bonus.
Will you ‘win a beest’ load of cash Wombat Fans? With pays of 10,240 x your bet up for grabs, let’s hope so… That’s approaching the kinds of pay off we have seen on East Coast vs West Coast from Nolimit City. It’s not quite there, but it’s getting close.
Look and Feel
The slot action in this game takes place under the baking sun of the Serengeti. Shady Baobab trees and grassy plains make up the backdrop to the reels, and you’ll also see fluffy clouds floating in the sky above. It’s all very Super Lion slot but with less neon and more grasslands.
This Wombat is also a big fan of the sound effects here. The music is of a percussion-filled ditty that sounds like something out of the Lion King, while you’ll also hear the noises of the Serengeti’s local inhabitants – depending on which one of them helps you scoop a winning combo.
Another good-looking game from Play’n GO.
Win-A-Beest Slot Game Play
Win-A-Beest slot comes with an unusual layout – it’s set on a 2-4-4-4-2 grid and offers 256 ways to win – but can go up to 1,024. That’s above average (a standard 5 reel Ways to Win game like the San Quentin slot comes with 243).
To make these wins you must match 3x or more icons on adjacent reels.
The pay-table icons consist of the ‘Big 5’ safari animals including elephants, lions, rhinos, leopards and of course wildebeests. Your lower value symbols are J, Q, K & A from the playing card deck.
The eponymous Wildebeest is the highest value icon in play and will net you 5 x your bet if you land 5 of them in a row.
You’ll also find 2 Wilds on the reels; they are the wildebeest’s horns with the word ‘wild’ over the top. The standard Wild will do the usual substition job and there’s also a Wild Multiplier that will double all your pay outs.
The bonus symbol here is the savannah at sunset.
Free Spins and Bonus Features
This feature can be set off at random in the base game, and when it does, the reel set will expand to a 5×4 for one spin. Now it’s only the Wildebeest, the Wild icons and Scatters that will be in play. As you would expect this can lead to bigger payouts and could help you to trigger off the bonus features. Cheers Play’N Go!
Beest Mode Spins
If you do manage to land 3x or more of the Scatter icons during Beest Mode the Beest Mode Spins will activate – and boy have you got a treat in store.
You’ll now be given 4-8 spins depending on how many scatters you hit to begin with – and the Beest mode will be active during all the spins. As you’d expect, this means you could scoop some mega wins
This bonza bonus can also be re-triggered an unlimited number of times. Eek!
Land 3x or more Scatter icons in the base game, and you better buckle up, as it’s time for you to play the Stampeding Spins.
8, 12 or 20 free spins are now yours, while the reels will expand into a 5×4 grid adding more win ways in the mix with Beest Mode will also be active.
And, if you set off the Beest Mode Spins during the free spins, you’ll probably have to buy a brand new wallet… As this is where those very top wins can be made
Win-A-Beest slot has bags of atmosphere thanks to the graphics, and we were happily transported to Africa as soon as we started to spin.
Most Play’n GO slots come with massive max wins of at least 5,000x (think Book of Dead or Reactoonz) but they’ve doubled it here with a HUGE top prize of 10,2400x your bet. Thankfully as a this a medium variance slot, the risk won’t be too crazy.
Play today Wombat Fans!
