Behind the reels a typical scene of the African savannah can be seen with a large stretch of flatland including the odd Acacia tree here and there and mountains can be seen in the distance. The blue sky down to the ground below is covered in a haze that makes it appear slightly grey, the whole scene has been created nicely to look realistic. The game’s title is situated in the top-left of the screen above the Mega, Major and Mini jackpot indicators, the font used is bold, yet plain for ‘Serengeti’ and bright gold and large for ‘Gold’. The spin button is situated to the right of the gird along with the change stake and information feature presented in golden circles.
The grid itself consists of some interesting symbols, the lower-case J – A Royals appear in various colours, and the remaining 5 main game symbols are animals one would expect to see roaming the great plains. The buffalo, rhino, leopard and elephant symbols show the animals in different positions and colours, these can pay out between 7.5x and 20x the stake for a combination of 5. The king of the wild, the lion actually represents this game’s Wild symbol, these are worth the same as the elephant symbol and can represent other symbols to complete a winning line.
The bonus features available on Serengeti Gold include free spins and Hyperhold respins. Players can trigger the free spins feature by landing 3 Scatter symbols on the 1st, 3rd and 5th reels, this opens the free spins wheel which decides the number of spins from 10 to 25 and the multiplier from 2x to 5x. multipliers are applied to any regular win during this bonus round and the free spins can be retriggered by 3 Scatters awarding the number of spins that were awarded from the wheel originally.
The golden disc symbols each have a value printed on top, if 6 of these appear on the reels from the same spin the Hyperhold Respins. The bonus golden discs that triggered this feature remain in positions and only other bonus symbols or blank spaces will appear during this round. If another bonus symbol lands it also sticks and resets the 3 respins, the prizes available from bonus symbols are usually worth 1x to 20x the stake. Bonus symbols can also pay 30x the bet (Mini Jackpot) or 100x the stake (Major Jackpot), if all 15 positions are filled with bonus symbols the Mega Jackpot of 2,500x is won.
