Zimba and Friends SlotsFeeling like a cross between Tarzan and Lion King, Zimba and Friends slots sees you explore the jungle in search of three big progressive jackpots. You'll also meet Zimba - a ferocious, but fun-loving lion - along with his jungle buddies. A couple of these friends are wild symbols that expand and give you huge prizes! Find out about the jackpots, wild symbols, and Zimba's pals as we look at this game's graphics, betting options, special features, and mobile play.
Graphics and AtmosphereZimba and Friends slots draws you in immediately with a jungle background that looks so real, you'll feel like you've actually been transported to a dense African rainforest. We also like the tune playing in the background, which consists of tribal music, elephant roars, monkey sounds, and birds. Another thing that makes this atmosphere great includes off-reel appearances by Zimba and the monkey. Zimba pokes his head out from behind the betting options occasionally, while the chimp swings down from the top of the screen. Symbols include: the monkey (wild), giraffe (expanding wild), Zimba, elephant, weasel, zebra, African horned melon, bananas, sapodilla, A, K, Q, and J.
Format and BettingZimba and Friends is a 5-reel, 12-line game, and you must play all 12 lines. Your total bet can be adjusted from $0.24 to $240.00 per spin, giving you some flexibility in the wagering department. By clicking the arrow button underneath the reels, you can autospin for anywhere between 5 and 50 spins. Another option includes Max Bet, which turns your wager up to $240.00 per spin. Considering that there's no benefit to wagering more than $0.24 a spin, we don't recommend using Max Bet.
Zimba and Friends Special FeaturesWhen the monkey appears in reel 3, you'll see one monkey wild land in each of the five reels. The pattern that the primates appear in depends upon where the monkey lands on the third reel. Here's an example: if he shows up at the top of reel 3, you see monkeys at the top of reels 1, 3 and 5, and at the bottom of reels 2 and 4. In addition to appearing in other reels, a monkey in reel 3 gives you between 1 and 6 re-spins. During re-spins, the primates remain in their respective positions, giving you a better chance of winning. Appearing only on reels 2 and 4, the giraffe becomes an expanding wild who also gives you 1-6 free re-spins. During re-spins, the giraffe remains an expanded wild who stays in position.
