King Tusk slot from Microgaming

King Tusk slot from Microgaming
In 2017 Microgaming decided to dedicate a slot solely to this ‘full of finesse and exemplary elegant in appearance’ animal: the Elephant. The result is the cool King Tusk slot machine, with 3 types of Free Spins, each one with some unique Wild element, and a default maximum winning of 62 000 coins (992x the total bet, via max stake). The Wild symbol plays a significant role here. For starters, any symbol can randomly transform into a Wild, and any Wild can extend into a stacked wild reel, which will prove to be very lucrative. Once you hit the Free Spins, the reel rave-up begins. We advise you to try the Thunderstruck Wild Lightning slot by Microgaming for free.

Choose one of the 3 variants, and all kinds of Wilds will astonish you, boosting your balance and making you believe in the power of King Tusk. Like most of us, if you love elephants, you will appreciate this beautifully designed slot and its attuned jungle sounds. It is a Medium Volatility game, built with an initial RTP of 96.40%. Every time a symbol drops, you’ll hear an African drum tone, followed by a festive African drum party as soon as you hit Free Spins.

Personal testers’ opinion

We were pleasantly surprised by this slot, especially because it oozes the tranquil atmosphere, which is mostly due to the African drum soundscape. The paytable could’ve been more generous, and we were missing Scatters with value, as well as some spicy multipliers. On the other hand, the frequency of bonus triggering at the King Tusk slot machine is high (Free Spins come around every 85th spin), the average hit figure is decent (almost 36%), but the division between the pool parts could’ve been better. About 65% of the bets are set aside for the main game, which doesn’t leave a big chunk for the Bonus round. Our biggest win in the base game was 108x the total bet, so not all that impressive. We are inclined to leave neutral recommendations for playing with real money. Moreover, after extensive testing, we can conclude that King Tusk is not suitable for completing the bonus requirements, scoring only 4.2 (out of 10) wagering points.
