African Elephant Slot Review

The African Elephant slot is played on a 5x4 reel set that generates 20 fixed bet ways that pay left to right when at least three matching winning symbols appear on consecutive reels beginning from reel one. A wild symbol substitutes for all other winning symbols, but not the scatter. The scatter symbol appears on all the reels, and when three or more land, they trigger free spins. 

During the base game, a wild shape can appear, and all symbols within it transform into wilds. A wild shape is guaranteed in free games. The max win available in both the base game and free spins is x15000. 

In all, there are ten winning symbols in the African Elephant slot, including the wild, which has the top win multiplier.

Our comprehensive African Elephant slot review follows below.


This is one of the many slots that takes its inspiration from the African Savannah and its inhabitants. There are some great examples of the wildlife and convincing scenery.


All the animals are well crafted, from the cheeky meerkat to the noble elephant. The reels have a backdrop of the landscape itself.


African drums and other percussion instruments provide a delightful soundtrack.

African Elephant RTP and Variance 

Here we examine the payout potential of the African Elephant slot.


The RTP of this game is 96.04%, but it is one of those slots that has a number of versions, so players should beware of lower RTPs.


The game displays high variance, which may not suit everyone but adds to the excitement. If you prefer games that display less volatility, take a look at the Rainbow Riches slot here at Slots Temple, where you can try it in demo mode.

African Elephant Review - Our Verdict 


Our African Elephant slot review begins with a warning that this is one of those slots that has a number of different versions with varying RTPs. The standard version has an RTP of 96.04%, but players should beware.


The game does not have too many features, but plenty of players love these stripped-back games. The free spins are pretty classic, triggered by the scatter and increasing depending on how many land. The best feature is the Wild Shape, but it only occurs randomly in the base game and you have to trigger free games to really get the most out of it.


We enjoyed the game in demo mode, and provided you keep an eye on the RTP, you should be okay. The bet range is wide, but the game is unlikely to attract high rollers with its modest top payout.

Are there free spins in the African Elephant slot?

Yes, the scatter symbol triggers free games. The more that land - up to five - the more spins you win. The maximum is 25, but the feature can re-trigger and is only halted when the maximum prize is reached or no re-trigger occurs in the free games.

What is the RTP of the African Elephant slot?

The official RTP of the slot we tried was 96.04%, but there are reports of different versions of the game with much lower RTPs. We think 96.04% is disappointing for a newly published game since it is below the current industry average, and news that some versions may be lower is worrying.

Is there a gamble feature in the African Elephant slot?

No, the game is a little short on features, apart from free games and the wild shape additions. There is no additional game of chance offering the player the chance to risk their winnings and try to double up. This is disappointing since the game does not have multipliers, either.
