There’s a glossy look to the visuals here which are rather well done. Set against a backdrop of the African savannah, you’ll see playing card suit symbols embellished with animal prints. They’re joined by giraffes, zebras, lion cubs, lionesses and paw prints.
Top of the standard symbol payers is the Pride and Prey logo. Land 3, 4 or 5 of these for an award of 1, 3 or 15 times your stake. The wild can land on all 5 reels. Land 3, 4 or 5 of them in combination and you’ll win 1.5, 5 or 20 times your stake.
There’s a Free Spins Bonus feature here that awards 8 free spins. To trigger it, you’ll need to land the lion on reels 1, 3 and 5 on a spin. Paws can scratch symbol positions and, in the process, turn them wild. 4 more free spins are awarded if you land 3 scatters on the same free spin.
If all that sounds rather familiar, then it should. What makes Pride and Prey a little different from the norm is the Rewards feature. These multiplier payouts are paid when an achievement is completed. Here’s what you can expect:
- Lazy Lion 5 losses (consecutive): 1 time your stake
- Lazy Lion Streak 10 losses (consecutive): 15 times your stake
- Lion on a Roll 5 wins (consecutive): 2 times your stake
- Unstoppable Lion 10 wins (consecutive): 50 times your stake
- Bonus Lion 1 free spin trigger: 1 times your stake
- Ultra Bonus Lion 10 free spin triggers: 10 times your stake
- Centurion Lion 100 total spins: 2 times your stake
- Dizzy Lion 1000 total spins: 20 times your stake
- Restless Lion 1 free spin retrigger: 10 times your stake
- Angry Lion 10 slash streak in 1 free spins: 25 times your stake
You can win each achievement multiple times. Achievements are carried over between sessions so you won’t lose out when you log off. Many elements of this game are pretty standard. The free spins are solid enough and the extra wilds can have an impact. The achievements certainly add an extra element to the action.
If you enjoy the safari theme but fancy something a little different, then give Pride and Prey a look. Saying that, there are much better alternatives out there with Mighty Africa: 4096 Ways from Playson my pick.
