Coming from respected online casino games developer GameArt, African Sunset is a safari-themed online pokie with some interesting special features. GameArt has years of experience in designing and developing gaming software for online video pokies, African Sunset being just one of many in its portfolio.
Playable on desktop and hand-held devices, African Sunset is a relatively simple and low volatility game designed to keep the player entertained and with nice graphics representing a range of African wildlife and other symbols. The game is compatible with Android, iOS and Microsoft operating systems.
A bright African sun forms the background with golden colours and a tribal drum soundtrack evoking the safari theme, and symbols include the Lion – which appropriately is a wild symbol – plus a giraffe, zebras, rhinos and a tree as well as the traditional playing cards.
This is a traditional pokie in many ways as the game play is based around wild and scatter symbols and free spins, but the background noise of the drums, birds and trumpeting elephants adds an amusing and evocative touch as do the animations when pay-outs are made. The three line and five-reel layout will be familiar to all levels of player.
How to Play African Sunset
The screen is easy to read but quite detailed so on smaller screens may look cluttered. African Sunset is all about getting to the scatters for free spins, with the scatter symbol being the tree. The Lion is wild which also adds to the potential for winning.
Three or more identical symbols make a pay-out, with four and five being he most lucrative. Five Lions, for example, will gain the player 800 times the stake, with four giving 200x. The Rhino also pays high with 500x, while the lower paying animals reward with 50x for five on the reels.
Special Features of African Sunset
The special features are triggered by the wild Lion and the scatter symbol which is the Tree. Following are some of the interesting special features:
- A tree symbol on reel 1 and 5 triggers 15 free spins with a multiplier of between 2 and 10, plus re-spins within the feature.
- After every win there is a special Gamble feature which is a 50/50 double or nothing red or black card spin. The player can choose this or pass and can gamble up to 5 times in a row.
African Sunset keeps things simple yet fun and is an attractively designed pokie with plenty of potential for winning.
