This is a bold 3-reel slot machine by Microgaming software. With the possibility to play with 5 paylines, Zany Zebra offers a decent range of winning chances to spinners who like their games to be relatively simple on a gameplay front, but who are tired of the same old classic fruit machines. There is a wild symbol to give players a helping hand in their betting endeavours to land the slot machine’s jackpot of 6,000 coins.
Symbols in the game
In this slot you will find a set of reel symbols that nod to classic slot machines, including single, double and triple BARS as well as golden bells and 7s. Then there is, of course, the Zany Zebra character himself, presented on the reels wearing a pair of shades as well as below the reels surrounded with some bright and bold party paraphernalia. Indeed, far from being a black and white visage like its namesake, this game is lifted by a vibrant use of colour, mixing bright pink reels with shades of yellow, orange, red, green and blue.
The game stake
The game stake in this slot game is coin sizes: 0.25, 0.50, 1.00, 2.00 and 5.00. Then, punters need to select how many paylines they would like to activate for the spin, clicking the “Bet One” button to roll through the options which will be highlighted by the diagram in the top right hand corner of the game screen.
Of course, playing with all 5 paylines will result in a higher total bet per spin, but it might just be worth it since this will make it possible to win the game’s highest jackpot of 6,000x. That jackpot is triggered whenever three Zany Zebra icons align in a row with all five paylines triggered If three Zebras appear with fewer paylines active then a line bet multiplier of 1,000x, 2,000x, 3,000x and 4,000x will be awarded, depending on the quantity of paylines in play.
There are no free spins, no gimmicky side games and certainly no progressive jackpot potential. However, the colourful game is given some special gameplay characteristics thanks to the fact that all zebra symbols are wild icons. That essentially means that they will help to complete winning lines by filling in the gaps for all other symbols on the reels.
There are plenty more ways to win in this slot machine, with prizes that range from 5x to 300x the value of the wager that is placed on the winning line.
