King Tusk Slot
King Tusk slot game was launched in November 2017 by Microgaming. It’s a 25 pay-line game with a standard 5-reel format and a low to medium variance. As the latest, in a long line of safari-inspired casino slots, King Tusk features a fairly reasonable 97% RTP.
King Tusk Slot Background
It seems that casino game developers just can’t get enough of African-inspired themes at the minute. There’s been Safari Heat, Hot Safari, Big 5 Safari, Safari, Super Safari, Photo Safari, Safari Sam, Safari Madness, Soccer Safari and Safari Spirit. Then you’ve got the jungle slots which include Jungle Wild, Jungle Games, Jungle Jackpots, Heart of the Jungle, Slots Jungle, Jungle Adventure, Crazy Jungle and last but certainly not least, The Jungle. Suffice to say then, that we’re close to saturation point when it comes to casino slots with ‘safari’ or ‘jungle’ in the title. Mercifully a few software houses have taken the radical step of omitting both words from their savannah-inspired games to uh, you know, retain a fragment of originality. Microgaming is one such cheeky non-conformist. They’re offering is called King Tusk.
As one would expect from a relatively new casino slot, King Tusk is easy on the eyes. The reels include smooth animations and well-drawn reel-symbols set against a kind of story-book depiction of the African plains.
Gameplay is fairly basic with only three high value symbols available: two types of elephants and a pot of gold. The obligatory card reel images are used for lower values. When is somebody going to come up with an alternative?
The wild in King Tusk is represented by a charging elephant and changes all symbols to help create winning combinations. During the regular game, one symbol is randomly selected and then converted into a special wild – if it’s already a wild symbol it gets changed to a wild stack.
The scatter symbol is represented by the game logo and appears only on reels 2, 3 and 4. Although it doesn’t create its own combination it does not have to appear on an enabled payline to win. Landing three scatters triggers the King Tusk free spins feature.
