Betsoft has focused its visual artistry to the savanna and the result is breathtaking to say the least. The background imagery is set at sunset and there is a golden outline to every element of the landscape. The gloriously displayed plains and trees are colored with emerald and brown shades, the mountains are elusively dark, while the sunset sky is filled with violet and pink. You can spot subtly placed tiny silhouettes of animals at the base of the mountain. The highlight of the game’s appearance, however is the reels themselves and more particularly – the terrific animation of the symbols. The game features 5 reels and 4 rows. Coin sizes start at 2 cents and go as large as 1 dollar. The maximum number of bet credits with which a spin can be entered is 5. That set up forms a maximum possible bet of 200 dollars.
Paytable of the Stampede
The paytable symbols of the game are divided in Standard Symbols, Mid Value Symbols and High Value Symbols. The highest paying one is the Elephant, which pays 50 coins for 2 symbols, 250 coins for 3 symbols, 500 coins for 4 symbols and the game’s top payout of 1500 coins for 5 symbols. The rest of the symbols have just 3 winning combination, involving from 3 to 5 matching symbols. The High Value symbols include the Cheetah, paying 250, 500 and 750 coins and the Eagle that provides gamblers with the same amounts. The Mid Value Symbols are the Zebra, which delivers 100, 400 and 600 coins, the Giraffe, which pays the same, the Antelope that offers 50, 250 and 500 coins and the Ace that grants the same amounts as the Antelope. The other symbols are part of the Standard Symbols section. The King, the Queen and the Jack all give 25, 100 and 500 coins. The 10 pays 10 coins for 2 symbols, 25 coins for 3 symbols, 50 coins for 4 symbols and 500 coins for 5 symbols.
The wild symbol of the game is a logo “WILD”. It is capable of replacing the rest of the symbols in the game with the exception of the scatter. The elephant might be the highest paying symbol of the paytable but the highest paying symbol of the game is in fact, the scatter symbol, which is a surprising twist because that is rarely the case with slot games in general. The icon of the scatter depicts a gorgeous big tree with scarlet outline on the background of the setting or rising sun and a lovely pink sky. It delivers both payouts and free spins simultaneously. 3 scatters pay 400 coins and 8 free spins, 4 scatters pay 2000 coins and 12 free spins and 5 coins pay 4000 coins plus 20 free spins. More free spins can be won during the initially activated free spins round. If wild symbols show up during the free spins they can double or triple earnings. The wild symbols’ multipliers will be multiplied so for example, if 2 wild symbols appear on the reels during free spins and they each have a multiplier of 3 the multiplier on the earnings made during the spins will be 3 times 3, which equals 9 times. The wilds can only appear on the second, third and fourth reel. The Double Up feature is also available in Stampede Slots. Through it a player can double half or all of the earnings made after a spin. A Heads or Tails game will commence and if victorious, the player’s wagered earnings will be increased.
Stampede Slots lives up to Betsoft’s high standard with exquisite visual design, numerous profitable symbols and an exceptionally generous free spins bonus round.
