The setting here is the sun-kissed African savannah. You’ll see 5 lower value gemstone symbols alongside a range of animals relating to the safari theme. In order of value are a gazelle, zebra, rhino and elephant. The latter is the top payer, awarding 500 coins if you land 5 on a payline.
Above each reel, you’ll see a figure which shifts 1 position to the left with each spin. This is the Prize Disk feature – this feature is triggered by landing the bonus symbol. You’ll then win the prize directly above that reel or 10 free spins. The Prize Disk symbol can only hit on reel 1, 3 and 5 in the base game or on all reels in the Free Spins Bonus feature.
Keep a special eye out for the wild animal symbols during the Free Spins Bonus feature – the gazelle, zebra, rhino and elephant all double payouts when they’re part of a winning line. Look out too for the Extra Spins symbol – every time 1 of these lands an extra 2 free spins are added to your total. You can expect to land the Prize Disk feature more regularly during the free spins as the bonus symbol is in play on all 5 reels.
As far as volatility goes, Elephant King sits in the middle of the pack. This is a medium variance game that offers a balanced range of payouts – the maximum win is 533 times your total bet on each spin.
The design here is typical of what we’ve come to expect from an IGT live to online slot conversion. It’s not from the top drawer but the visuals are perfectly solid and there’s a bouncing soundtrack to accompany the action. The gameplay is steady enough too. The Prize Disk feature offers something a little different though and the doubled payouts from the higher value symbols in the feature round can quickly deliver a stampede of coins.
