The African Simba slots represents one of the very first games made by Novomatic to make the move to 243 pay-lines. With the game being a 5x3 slots, this means that every single possible combination or permutation of matching symbols on rows 1-5 will result in a win. Very much like Buffalo slots, the most popular slot in Las Vegas.
Looking at the visual side of African Simba slot game, it is definitely one of the better executed releases from Novomatic. The colours are beautiful and the symbols quite authentic.
Another element that puts the slot on the map is an excellent payout potential, placing African Simba in the category of the “heavier” fruit machines – the kind that can change your life in a single spin. Not to mention the re-triggerable free games and the tripled winnings during the bonus round.
With the name that immediately takes you to your childhood fantasies of conquering the dangers and depths of dark African jungles or roaming free across the wilderness of spacious savannahs, African Simba is bound to attract some Lion King fans and unfulfilled explorers.
Offering 243 win ways on a standard 3 rows and 5 reels slot structure, Novomatic uses the most beautiful dwellers of the Dark Continent as the slot icons.
The lowest value symbols are A, K, Q, J, 10 and 9, while you can expect a more substantial payouts from Flamingo, Mongoose, Buffalo and Giraffe icons. Wild symbol is none other than the undisputed King of the Jungle himself, the mighty Lion, and the so-called Joker icon that can stand for all other icons expect for the Scatter Sunset.
Scatter traditionally triggers (and re-triggers in this particular case) 12 Free Rounds in African Simba slot and multiplies the wins by x3. That means that a single spin during Free games can result in a total payout of 375,000 credits on a Pauline, for the combination of 5 Giraffes.
African Simba in Vegas
At this stage, it's just a rumor, but we have heard that Novomatic slots are due to appear in Vegas at some stage in the future. The games are so much fun, it's hard to understand why they never appeared in the US casinos, especially considering how popular they are around the world. So, if we see them soon, that would be amazing and a big bonus for Las Vegas players.
The inspiration for Vegas casinos to finally start looking at Novomatic has, apparently, been triggered by the merger of IGT, WMS and Bally. The lack of competition has resulted in less diversity for the casinos and less chance to play the manufacturers against each other in trying to get the best deal.
We have already seen Ainsworth making an appearance in Vegas, so maybe Novomatic will be next? I hope so, because their games are, in all honesty, much better than the games made by Ainsworth with much better bonus rounds and potentially better big wins.
