The symbols in the game include 5 card royals, 5 wild animals, a wild and scatter symbol. The 10, J and Q pay equally – 3, 4, 5 and 6 on successive reels from left to right grant 0.10, 0.20, 0.40 and 1 time your bet. The K and A return 0.20 to 1.50 times your stake for 3 to 6 symbols.
The pink flamingo pays 0.20x, 0.40x, 0.60x and 1.50x bet for 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 symbols on adjacent reels from left to right. The hyena has a payout of 0.30x, 0.50x, 0.80x and 2x stake for 3, 4, 5 and 6 symbols. The crocodile gives you 0.30, 0.50, 1 and 2.50 times your bet for 3, 4, 5 and 6 matching symbols.

The most rewarding symbol is the cheetah – 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 of it in paying combinations return 1, 2, 10, 25 and 50 times your bet. The wild is the rhino that substitutes for all other symbols except scatters. You can see it on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 only on the topmost row.
Part of all stages of the gameplay is the Tumble feature. After every win, paying symbols disappear. The rest of the symbols fall to the bottom of the grid. The empty positions get replaced with new symbols falling from above. The newly fallen symbols have the same size as the last spin result before the tumble. The tumbles ensure wins that are added to your account. They can trigger many consecutive wins with fewer paid spins.
There is an Ante Bet also known as the Double Chance to Win feature. Every 20 coins that you wager per spin can be increased with 5% to 25 coins per spin. This changes the bets that range between 0.25 and £125 per spin with the Ante Bet. For the 5% increase of the wager, you will have double as many scatters landed on the reels. This means double chances to trigger the Free Spins. The price is worth is, so you may consider using this extra since the big wins fall in free spins. They are played with an increasing multiplier and you can retrigger unlimitedly.
The scatter is a golden coin with the rhino that appears on all reels. Hitting 4 or more scatters landed anywhere in a spin sequence with or without the help of tumbles trigger Free Spins. During these rounds, every winning tumble activates a multiplier that increases by 1x. Upon activating the free spins you will have 3 options to choose from. They depend on the number of triggering scatters.
