This HD slot leads us to African continent but strangely we don’t have a chance to get to know much animals instead we get an insight of tribal culture. Graphically the slot is very high quality using great and powerful colours and all kind of tribal badges, signs and animal drawings as play symbols while the supplementary images are fantastic. Because the game uses falling symbols instead of the traditional working scheme, between the spins we can admire in the image in the back illustrating African sunset with little hovels, baobab trees in sight while on the edge of the reel area there are skull, spears, shields on one side and the other side we can see Archibald, the explorer (by the way this figure looks like if it had stepped out of a Betsoft slot as it possesses all the graphical style, little animations as we get used to at the other software developer’s works). Perhaps the symbols are not the best fitting too each other and sometimes when I look at them they just seem to me a colourful cavalcade but I still think the appearance of the game is still very nice and impressive mainly thanked to the very great graphics technique and overall I very like what I see at this slot and it’s among the not too many products what I always play with in full screen mode.

Unfortunately, I’m not such satisfied with the game segment and I’m not saying it’s a real bad one but in my opinion this 50-payline slot should offer more and better things for us. My concern mainly applies to the profit what this game generates or better saying the lack of this ability. This is generally not a good rewarding slot and it can be experienced both in base game and features too. Though the wins occur respectively often but the payout ability of the winning combinations is poor and that’s why the player never feels that it’s possible here to win some great amount.

The best paying Giraffe silhouette may reward us up to 1500 coins in its full capacity and even if this amount can be doubled if a Wild (which doesn’t pay in itself) is involved in that winning combination but it’s still not too persuasive just like the best line wins by all other symbols. The Free Spin feature has also own challenges as the situation is not better there and most of the times I never can manage to win more than just x 10-x 20 times of my total bet.

Anyway, the free spin feature triggering Scatter has got ordinary top prize which is 100 times of bet award but if you see more than 3 such symbols on the reels at the same time you should capture that picture because you won’t see it again for an extended period of time and maybe at a later time you will want to remember yourself ‘yes, this Scatter is able to do it (just notice as I’m writing these words my photo album is still empty  ). So theoretically the Scatter may award more than 12 free spins (what 3 Scatters would give) but I never bet on to have a chance to play 15 or 20 extra games.

Statistically, a little better the situation with the bonus game - which otherwise could be an entertaining and funny one, thanks to the great animation - but I still think that this side game should be activated more occasions. There we have to choose an elephant for Archibald who wants to take a ride on it but usually he doesn’t get too far with it and the side game is a very short-lived one. By the way, the available profit here is not bad but I just want to see as our hero can take a seat on the back of an elephant a little bit longer.

There is another little add-on which comes randomly after any spin when arrived symbols take a new positions on the reels forming an totally different arrangement giving a chance for new winning combinations and even if most of the times there are actually new wins but most of the times the combined don’t reach the total bet amount so for me this extra is simple insignificant.

Archy must be a busy adventurer as his other journeys are also documented and when he visited Mayan civilization and went to East, well, that exploring tours are also manifested in video slot products by the help of World Match but besides the obviously different screens and bonus features basically those games are the same than this African travel one and personally I like this slot the most out of the three versions. Anyway, this game is a really good looking one and was made of very great pictorial elements but other than that it’s not more than an ordinary product which has some trouble with the rewarding system. I hardly can believe that this game would surprise me ever with any remarkable wins and the average play session here just goes by unnoticed and this is never a good criteria of a great product so eventually I don’t think Archibald Africa would be such one.
This is another awesome game from Archibald series, and I definitely recommend it to all gamblers. To start off with I would say straight away that the graphics are very good. The theme of the game is Africa, and the symbols in my view are well chosen. After playing same games for a long time now, for me this game was a real treat.
The game is full of surprises and it has two features. The pays are very reasonable and if you get a good combination you could win a good amount of money.

I started playing this game on small bets, and was not greedy this time. I took my time and got familiar with the pays and was ready to take on this African adventure. I don't know if the game is generally that good or if I was getting lucky, but the game was giving me reasonable wins and quite often. My biggest line hit was €18, but usually it was around €8 or €9.

The only thing that I did not like was the difficulty of getting the feature. It is very hard it take a very long time. Luckily I was getting line hits, otherwise it would have cost me over €50 just to get the feature.
Sometimes after the reels land, everything starts shaking and the game puts the symbols in a winning combination. I did not get a huge win when that happened, but I liked the idea and thought it was fun.

As I expected after a while I managed to get three bonus signs and was ready to see the bonus. I had to choose one of the four elephants and ride it. My elephant did not reach the end and I won €36. Not bad, but to be honest I was expecting something much bigger. Never the less it was better than nothing and I did not complain.
I really tried to get the free spins, but they never came out.

Over all the game is beautiful and fun. The feature is cool, and im sure if you reach the end you will get a lot of money. My rating 7 out of 10. Very cool game.
