Hot on the heels of its second July slot release and Play’n GO takes us to the African plains with its latest title, Win-a-Beest.
The medium volatility payways slot offers players an innovative take on the classic Buffalo-style games that have proven so popular over the years, cleverly dubbing one of Africa’s less sexy natives, the wildebeest or gnu, Win-A-Beest.
“This is a game all about power.”
Played on a 2-4-4-4-2 grid that expands to 5×4 during special features, the main focus of the game is, of course, the Wildebeest, which serves as a ‘super-symbol.’ Of all the game’s symbols, which include the usual J-A card values, along with leopards, rhinos, lions, and elephants, the Win-A-Beest icon is the most valuable on the grid, with five of a kind worth 5 times the stake.
The so-called super-symbol, also unlocks two of the game’s special features, Beest Mode, which can randomly trigger during the main game or on extra spins, and Beest Mode Spins, which are triggered when three or more scatters appear in Beest Mode.
Not just one, but two wilds are featured in the game, with a standard wild and a multiplier wild, which not only substitutes but multiplies and win it forms by two times.
The wildlife-themed video slot‘s last symbol is the Scatter, which triggers the extra spins feature, Stampeding Spins. Landing three or more Scatters during the base game triggers the exciting bonus round. Players who land 3,4, or 5, Scatters are awarded 8, 12, or 20 extra spins and can still trigger Beest Mode, and as a result, Beest Mode Spins, during extra spins.
Each of the features makes the reels expand, creating a 5×4 grid and increasing the number of payways from 256 to a respectable 1024, quadrupling your opportunities to win!
Chief Product Officer for Play’n GO, Martin Zettergren, commented on the strong characteristics that the game brings, stating…
“This is a game all about power. The Wildebeest is a powerful animal, and it combines with a strong paytable to give players more powerful wins.
The features, multiplier Wilds and grid expansion are all designed to add into the excitement and energy that a ‘wild’ slot like this should generate, we know players will enjoy what it has to offer.”
Supported across all devices and with a 96.12 percent RTP, players are not only going to enjoy the familiar feel of the theme and design but will love the updated features that provide non-stop excitement throughout the game.
