Big Africa

Big Africa

This is one of the first games on Konami’s new “Podium Goliath” cabinet, a giant version of the company’s workhorse Podium format. The cabinet features dual 32-inch, high-definition LCD monitors, 360-degree attract lighting and an improved sound system.

Big Africa is a five-reel, five-line video slot designed for high denominations. (It is also available in a three-line configuration.) In the base game, the diamond symbol is wild, substituting for all but the bonus triggers. The wild symbol appears on the third, fourth and fifth reels.

Two or more tree symbols trigger four “re-spin” games. This feature transforms the tree symbol into any one of nine symbols. The transformed symbols will be held on the first two reels during the re-spin games. If a five of a kind is triggered on the line that triggered the re-spin feature, the pay will repeat throughout the remaining re-spin games.

During the feature, all pays are on the line that triggered the re-spin feature only. The feature cannot be re-triggered during the feature.
