Big Game from Genii launched in May 2014. Thus, the game has a number of years on its neck, and in some aspects it is quite clear. In other aspects, Big Game works like any modern five-reel slot.

Big Game features a timeless, stripped-down game screen with cartoon animal symbols from the world of the Savannah. The title refers to the larger prey that hunters are often after on the Savannah. Politically correct, the game is not. Features include wilds, scatters, free spins and multipliers.

About Big game slot

Big game from Genii gives you the chance to make a visit to the savannahs of Africa without even stepping outside the door. In this five-reel slot, you will get acquainted with typical mammals from the vast, sun-drenched expanses of the giant continent. You our homes̈ lkomnas by lejon, noshö rings, elephants, leopards and other typical African animals. The game is quite reminiscent of classics such as Mega Moolah and Jungle Games, but it still has a certain character of its own.

The graphics of Big Game were excellent when the game was launched in May 2014. As you read this, you may feel that the graphics feel slightly less attractive. At the same time, it is not” ugly " in any way. In fact, we have to say that the game has a certain elegance. The game screen with the five reels as it were ”floats” against a background showing a sunset over the Savannah. There is no frame$ing wheel alignment and no demarcations between the wheels. This kind of minimalist wheels on̈ llning is a bit of a specialty from the game developer Genii and it is one in any case we like.

As for the sound, we are not as impressed. As background music, Genii has stuffed a story with drums and various wind instruments (think: The Lion King). The sound effects are quite few, and unfortunately they quickly become annoying. Every win that pops up (and they often do – read more below) is accompanied by an almost terrible trudelutt with flute sounds. During our test play, we actually found the sound so enervating that we turned it off!

Stakes and winnings

In the Big Game you play on 1-30 lines across five reels and three rows . When entering your bet, you should choose both the coin value (0.10, 0.50 or 1$), the number of coins per line (1-15) and the number of lines (1-30). Adjusting the lines is unnecessary, so it is the coin value and bet level that should be the focus. The minimum bet is$ 3 while the maximum bet is$450.

Wins come close to the Big Game. If you try our free demo version here in the review, you will discover this very quickly. At the same time as winnings appear very regularly for the most part, they don't get very big. For example, three consecutive meerkat symbols give only 10% of the bet. There are also combinations with at least four more high-paying icons in succession for the winnings to be something to count on.

The biggest wins you get in the free spins round if you are lucky with the high win symbols and jokers. With 3x on all wins, and 2x extra for wins with the wild symbol, you can win a lot. The maximum win is 270,000 coins.

Big game RTP is unfortunately very low. Genii has actually not pulled it up higher than to 94.70%. Fortunately, later creations from the game developer have a significantly higher payback.

Bonus features


The lion and the elephant are the symbols on the reels that stand out a little extra. The lion, who is the king of the Savannah, is b on̊ the joker / wild and the game's most popular on̈ precious symbol . The elephant is a scatter and gives both a cash win and a chance at Free Spins.

Other symbols on the reels are a rhino, a hippo and a leopard. In terms of what the symbols pay, this trio can be said to be medium win symbols. A Buffalo, a giraffe, a zebra, an ostrich, a hyena, a monkey and a meerkat make up the other (low-paying) part of the symbol gallery.

Game features

Geniis Big Game is a video slot with no direct surprises. The special features are generally the "old common" ones. However, there is a small special$ing multipliers that are extra interesting.


The lion plays the main role in the gallery of symbols. This symbol has three functions. First, The Lion acts as a joker. It replaces all other symbols with elephants (the scatter symbol) as the only exception.

Secondly, the lion is also a multiplier. If, like wild, it is included in a winning combination, the win on the line will be doubled. Of course, the Joker can appear in several paylines at the same time. Thirdly, the lion also acts as a high-profit symbol. Five lions on a line will give you a win of 6000 coins.

Scatters and free spins

Two elephants on the screen will give you an instant cash win of 2x the bet. For example, if you play for$ 4.50 per spin, you win$9.

Do you get three or more scatters instead do you win b on̊ the free spins and a bigger cash win . The schedule of rewards looks as follows:

  • 3 scatters = 5x the BET and 10 free spins
  • 4 scatters = 20x the BET and 15 free spins
  • 5 scatters = 100X the BET and 20 free spins

No matter how many free rounds you are awarded, you always get to play your freespins with a multiplier of 3x . It is a grip that was very common in the past, especially in slots from NetEnt , but which, unfortunately, is now not so relevant.

The overall multiplier in the free spins round can be combined with the multiplier the lion comes with. So you have the opportunity to see your line wins multiplied by 6x. that's the recipe for wins of the bigger kind.


Big Game is not the most hyper-modern slot machine you can find online. In addition, it is not exactly the best paying. Based on these aspects, you understand that the rating cannot be so high.

However, you can have a lot of fun with Big Game over time. The prerequisite, however, is that the free spins round is activated from time to time. A very large part of the total cashback is paid out in the free spins bonus round with its multipliers. If the free spins shine with their absence, you can instead unfortunately see your game box drop in value slowly but surely.
