Big 5 Safari
Big 5 isn’t one of the newest Microgaming slots to be released, but this classic slot certainly has a special place in many retro slot lovers’ hearts. Even though this is essentially a fruit machine, the presence of the lion on the reels keeps the African Safari theme of the game intact. The Big 5 slot features 5 reels and just a single payline of action, although players can still have quite a bit of control over the wagers in the game. Big 5 will let you stake anything from 0.25 up to 5.00 a total of up to 3 times per spin. Naturally then, you are going to be wagering between 0.25 and 15.00 a spin on this slot. Playing with a one-coin bet can see you win a top jackpot of 800 coins, whilst a two-coin bet offers a 1,600-coin jackpot. The biggest paying non-progressive prize is actually 2,400 coins, which you can win with 3 lions appearing on the game’s singular payline with a 3-coin bet.
Rather expectedly, there are no special features present in the Big 5 video slot. Very few classic slots actually contain special features.
Even in the absence of special features, there are still plenty of decent symbols for you to pick up wins with. Players can land cash prizes of between 2 and 6 coins for any single cherry, prizes of 5 to 15 coins for any two cherries, or any three bars appearing on the payline. Three single bar icons offer between 10 and 30 coins, whilst 3 cherries can see you win between 20 and 60 coins. Landing 3 of the 5-bar icons on a line offers you between 50 and 150 coins in winnings. Then there are the lion icons, which pay out the top prizes as we have already discussed.
Just like there are no special features in this slot, so too are there no bonus rounds. This is again perfectly normal for a classic slot, and if bonus rounds were included, the slot just wouldn’t be the same.
