Welcome to the plains of Africa, rich with wildlife and home to some of the most majestic beasts known to man, including the formidable wildebeest. Go wild and stampede head first into the Play’n Go brand-new savannah inspired instalment, Win A Beest Slot.
Play’n Go really are a leading supplier in the industry, and we can all see why. They’re the mega minds that brought players everywhere some of their favourite games.
With such a track record for quality, the boots are on, the Jeep is ready, and we’re raring to go on safari.
An African theme isn’t exactly the most innovative of themes, we’ve certainly seen it elsewhere before. The background is simply the vast plains of the African wilderness, with a reel design that looks indigenous and tribal. The music however is quite uplifting with the sound of what might be a djembe drum playing loud and proud.
Win-A-Beest is a 5-reel slot that starts with a 2-4-4-4-2 format, and 256 ways to win, with the potential to open up to 1,024 ways via the in-game features.
12 Symbols in total exist within the game, of which the highest paying is naturally the Wildebeest symbol. The Elephant, Lion, Rhino and Leopard are also high paying symbols, and low symbols are A, K, Q & J. The game also features two Wilds, and a Scatter.
The base game is simple, working on payways, wins will be awarded for adjacent symbol combinations from left to right. In the base game, 256 ways to win are default which can be upgraded to 1,024 ways through features.
Beest Mode can activate and replace any spin. During Beest mode, only Win-A-Beest symbols, Wild, Wild x2 and scatter symbols can land. This is a nice feature with some potentially massive wins, and to further add to the excitement, 3 scatters within Beest Mode will trigger Beest Mode Free Spins.
Once this feature triggers, the game will go from 256 ways to win up to that much needed 1,024 ways.
3, 4 or 5 scatters will award 4, 6 or 8 spins. Beest Mode Spins are free spins where only Beest Mode is active. Once again, the ways to win will be 1,024 during this bonus, and the game can re-trigger an unlimited amount of times.
If there’s anything better than Beest mode, It’s Beest Mode Free Spins. This bonus really has the potential to land some nice hits. With only Win-A-Beest symbols, Wilds and Wilds x2 active and with a possibility of a re-trigger, this will really get your blood pumping,
Reels will once again expand to give the player 1,024 ways to win, and will trigger when 3 or more scatter symbols land in view during the base game. 3, 4 and 5 scatters will award 8, 12 and 20 Free Spins Respectively and can re-trigger an unlimited amount of times.
During Stampeding Spins, Beest Mode can activate more frequently than it does within the base game, and the Beest Mode Free spins can activate within that.
If Beest Mode Spins are triggered, the spins will play separately to the Stampeding Spins, so Stampeding Spins will continue once Beest Mode Spins have concluded.
Stampeding Spins is a great feature that’s full of excitement. The prospect of re-triggers and Beest Mode, and then Beast mode spins only to go back to the Stampede Spins to do it all again really makes for a captivating bonus.
Landing this bonus will also award a Scatter pays mechanic that awards you 5x your stake.
The Volatility of Win-A-Beest is medium, so it doesn’t exactly match the volitility of the harsh African Wilderness, but that’s okay, not every game needs to be high volatility, and some players will appreciate smaller wins more frequently.
With a 96.55% RTP players can expect to earn back a fair ratio of their bets.
Win-A-Beest overall is another exciting and fun filled instalment from Play’n Go. The base game feature Beest Mode is exciting, and with the potential to win Beest Mode Free Spins, it will keep players entertained and can award those lucky enough some very nice wins.
On top of that, Stampeding Spins can also be triggered which is where the fun really starts. Lurking in the undergrowth like a lion is a max win of 10,240x, which is a decent figure for a game that isn’t massively volatile.
Overall, Play’n Go have got the formula right again. Apart from the lacklustre design and theme, its hard to fault. Players who enjoy Play’n Go games will definitely want to join in with the stampede and give this one a go.
