The game art of the slots is beautifully crafted interspersed with a excellent free spins feature that awards up to 20 free spins. We played the game with a bankroll of $250 suffice to say we’re mightily impressed with the payouts we received during the main game.
The game has an African safari theme to it you’ll see the majestic African plains against the backdrop of the reels, the soundtrack is equally impressive too.
Stampede is an all-ways-pays medium variance 5 reel slots that offers 1024 ways to win while it has an average return to player percentage (RTP) of 95.26%. What does the RTP mean? If you wagered $100 you’ll get $95.26 back. Don’t always bank on this figure because slot machine figures uses extensive historical data over a period of tens of thousands of real money spins.
Symbols on the reels are eagles, giraffes, leopards, zebras, gazelles, wilds up to 3x(wooden pallet), cards from 10 to Ace, scatters (savanna tree) and elephants. The latter symbol pays the top cash prize and can land as stacked on the reels. Six elephants at the highest bet per spin pays 600 coins, so keep a very close eye on them because they can pop up at any time.
The (?) is the Paytable or Help Screen, it tells you which symbols offer the top payouts and how the free spins feature is triggered. The coin level is 0.02 to 1.00 and the bet level is 1 to 5. As you increase them your average bet per spins shoots up as well.
The Spin button is next to the Max Bet make sure you click on the right one. A Double Up feature allows you to double your wins and the Auto Play feature spins the reels up to 100 times for you automatically. Based on your average stake per spin it even tells you how much it’s going to cost you.
The wooden pallet is the wild with the words ‘wild’ inscribed on it they complete a winning combination when they substitute other symbols adjacent to them bar the scatter.
After every win you can press or click on the double up feature, you can double your wins (up to 50%) by clicking on ‘Heads’ or ‘Tails’.
”During FREE SPINS mode all wild symbols have a multiplier of 2x or 3x! Earn 3 wilds with 3x multipliers in the same win and you could earn up to 27x the winning value!”
The free spins bonus mode is initiated when you hit 3, 4 or 5 scatter symbols any position on the reels. The free spins you receive is proportionate to the scatters and awarded as follow:
This is a very impressive free spins feature because the wilds come with multipliers ranging from 2x to 3x. More than one wild completes a winning combination that catapults wins by a hefty margin.
Stampede is a cracking slots with expertly crafted visuals, BIG base game wins and an impressive free spins bonus mode. The volatility might chase low staked players but high rollers will love it!
With an average bet per spin of $0.25 at Bet Level 2 it took us around 100 money spins to trigger the free spins (3 scatters or more). It’s not often you get a game where the base game wins overshadows the free spins feature-our biggest win was during the main game (see screenshot). Overall it’s another great addition to an already very impressive Betsoft slots library.
