Dance of the Masai Slot
Dance of the Masai
Feel the rhythm of winning playing one of Microgaming’s newest video slot releases for the month of November …. Dance of the Masai.
This 25 line, 5-reel slot can be enjoyed for as little as a penny per line, up to ten cents per line. It carries with it a wild symbol and free spin feature, plus nine regular; base symbols … the highest paying being the antelope which will award you 2,000 coins if five appear on a payline.
The wild symbol of the game is the warrior that appears on reels two & four only. This symbol substitutes for all other symbols of the game with the exception of the scatter symbol to complete a winning combination.
The scatter symbol of the game is the tree symbol. Two scatters; anywhere on your screen; will award you double your triggering bet. Three or more scatters will award you ten free spins. During free spin play, the warrior become a special substitute and expands down the reel. As it expands and completes a winning combination, the warrior performs The Dance of The Masai for you! Also, within free spin play, should the warrior appear on reel two only; in a winning combination; your wins are doubled. If he appears in a winning combination on reel four, your wins are quadrupled. And, if he appears in a winning combination on reels two and four, you’ll be awarded eight times your win!
Beginning with $50 and playing all 25 lines at a penny per line with 10 coin max bet, I started spinning the reels for $2.50 each spin. Within a total of 26 spins, the wild symbol completed two winning combinations for me and the scatter doubled my bet once. I lost all my money on the 26th spin. But … “going with my gut feeling”, I played another $50 at the same spin value. Within a total of 62 spins, the wild symbol completed 11 winning combinations for me, the scatter doubled my triggering bet twice and the free spin feature was triggered twice as well. My first free spin win was $37.10, and the second was $13.50. At the end of the 62nd spin, I ended play because I lost it all … again.
Even though I walked away a loser playing this slot, I enjoyed my time playing it. I like the expanded wilds during free spin play, and scatters that pay double my triggering bet usually capture my attention. Maybe that’s why I enjoyed the slot … I really don’t know … there’s just “something” about it that made my playtime enjoyable! At any rate, the slot seems to run “hot & cold” so I would bring a large purse with me to play it again. I would’ve enjoyed some background music plaything this slot … something tribal to coordinate with the theme would have been nice.
