Animal Quest is set in a jungle where an ancient civilisation, not dissimilar to the Mayans, has left huge ruins for vines and undergrowth to smother in green.
The main difference between this jungle and one in our world is that here the explorers are non-human animals. The characters that the player explores the jungle with are a piratical opossum, a tech-wizard turtle, a rakish red panda, and a rhino with tribal tattoos.
The style is somewhere between Duck Tales and Indiana Jones.
The charming crew of explorers are drawn in a fun cartoon style that makes the most of each creature’s features. Their symbols all ooze unique character and the lower paying symbols, which are mostly jungle artefacts, all display similar levels of cool in their execution.
The slot uses 40 paylines on a five reel, four row slot. The gameplay is fairly straightforward, without a gamble feature or complicated bonuses (see below for details on what bonuses there are).
Wins with a Big Symbol (one of the four animal characters) trigger a respin with the winning symbol becoming sticky.
But beyond that, the game isn’t looking to push the boat out in terms of innovative playing styles.
The Wild symbol substitutes for all symbols except the Scatter symbol.
Two or more Scatters plus a Wild on one spin triggers ten free spins.
During the free spins, Big Symbols can land with a Gold outline. Gold symbols apply a multiplier to any wins they are part of. The Turtle is x2, the Rhino x3, the Opossum is x4, and the Red Panda is x5.
The return to player of this game is 96.11%, marginally above our yardstick for average of roughly 96%.
The range of bets on the site we tested ran from a minimum bet per spin of $/£/€0.10 up to a maximum of $/£/€50.00 per spin.
The volatility of this game is high, which makes it a good match for our preferred slot machine strategies. Our slot strategies target the highest possible volatility. Though we’d like higher RTP still, a roughly average RTP isn’t bad and couples well with the volatility.
At a simple mathematical level we like the high volatility of Animal Quest. It goes well with our slot strategies. The RTP is a little above average, but not by enough to make a fuss. But average ain’t bad. And the range of best on the site we tried allows players to meet the slot at whatever bankroll state they find themselves in.
You can add in that the gameplay is interesting enough to be fun, but isn’t gimmicky. And that all this is coupled with a stylish, fun, and immersive front end is just icing on the cake. Delicious, attractive icing.
We highly recommend this slot.
