In what is becoming a regular occurrence, Arrow's Edge has released yet another slot title that appears to be a winner with Zimba and Friends Slots. This latest title introduces the lion cub, Zimba, and all of his jungle friends to the reels of this 5-reel, 12-payline slot, including a monkey and giraffe that feature as two wild symbols with different characteristics. Zimba and Friends lacks a traditional scatter and a bonus round but still awards free spins with the appearance of either wild on the reels and also three jackpots that can be awarded randomly at the end of each spin. The features on Zimba and Friends more than make up for the lack of a bonus round.
The giraffe wild appears on reels two and four and much like the animal’s prodigiously long neck, stretches to completely fill the reel; the giraffe then becomes a sticky wild and the game awards one to six free spins with the sticky wild in place. The monkey wild symbol appears only on the third reel but expands across the reels in three different patterns, depending on where it landed on the third reel. Then, much like the giraffe wild, the game awards one to six free spins with the monkey wild becoming a sticky wild during the free spins. While the monkey wild cannot retrigger, the giraffe wild can retrigger once and each of the wild features can trigger when the other is already in play. The expanding and sticky wilds with the free spins and the three progressive jackpots that can be awarded randomly at the end of any spin give this slot title a very large win potential that all slot players are looking for in a slot game.
