When you think of Africa in online slots two themes come readily to mind. One is that of ancient Egypt and the other is animal safari. But Africa has more to offer. The leading software provider to online casinos Microgaming has a number of video slots that depict the simple but vibrant culture of the African tribes. This article reviews and recommends some of them.

Bush Telegraph is one of the older Microgaming slot games. It refers to the African system of transmitting messages through drum beats. The Wild logo is the wild symbol. It also awards the highest line payout of a whopping 7500 coins. This makes Bush Telegraph a high variance slot game so the message is that you have to be patient and wait for the big wins. The other high paying symbols are the bush animals shown with bongo drums. The low paying symbols are the playing card icons crafted in bold and brightly colored African patterns. The beans symbol awards scatter payouts and triggers 10 free spins with tripled payouts that can be retriggered. The bongo drums is the bonus symbol and awards up to 2500 bonus credits.

The Masai is one of the better known African tribes and Microgaming has a slot game titled Dance of the Masai in its portfolio. The warrior is the wild symbol but appears on reels 2 and 4 only. The tree awards scatter payouts and triggers 10 free spins. During the free spins the warrior not only appears expanded on its reels but also multiplies payouts by up to 8 times. The free spins can be triggered. The high paying symbols are giraffe, antelope, hut and the characteristic Masai spears and shield. The low paying symbols are the playing card icons. Dance of the Masai also includes the Microgaming gamble game.

The witch doctor is a central character in African culture. He is the medicine man and priest put in one and is often associated with black magic. This is the case of the doctor in the Witch Dr. Microgaming slot. The witch doctor is the wild symbol and awards line payouts as well. You will get a payout even if this symbol appears only on the first reel. You will see a lot of his frenzied dance in the win animations. No playing card icons are used and this makes the slot game more interesting. The other symbols include mask, shield, hut, voodoo doll, magic sticks, skull and cauldron. Chicken blood is an important ingredient in his cures and the scatter symbol is a chicken. It awards 15 free spins with tripled prizes.
