You are taken to Africa to enjoy the wilds of this slot game from Arrows Edge. They’ve developed lots of fine slots recently, and Zimba and Friends is yet another one we can add to the collection.
But is this a game that has some surprises in store? Is Zimba going to be useful to you, and are his friends going to help you win prizes as well?
The game comes complete with five reels, but there are fewer lines than you might expect. You get 12, and these are fixed.
The smallest spin bet you can place is 24 cents, which equates to two cents per line. You could also go way higher than that to reach a total $240 bet.
There are quite a few of these, including two wilds. The first one is the monkey, which could appear on reel three. Each position on reel three triggers an expanding wild that goes in a different direction. Wherever the wild monkey begins, he expands to cover five positions on the reels before pays are awarded. Better still, the game triggers anything from one to six free respins with the wilds fixed in place.
The second wild is a giraffe. This might show up on reels two or four. When it does, it acts as an expanding wild and covers its whole reel. Once that occurs, the free respins begin here too, and you get anything from one to six of those once again. The sticky wild remains in play for as long as those last.
There are no other bonus elements in Zimba and Friends, other than the two wild features. However, you can enjoy a shot at winning one of three progressive jackpots. Watch out for the Mystery, Super Slots, and Cash Grab progressive jackpot amounts. Could you be lucky enough to get one of those to come your way?
The presentation of this game is admirable, especially as the background can move if you are on your computer and you move your cursor. While there are no bonus elements, you can see the two wilds trigger bonus features in themselves. That means there is way more here than first glance would suggest, making this slot a winner for us.
