Stampede is a beautiful wildlife-themed slot produced by Betsoft released in 2017. As is usually the case with Betsoft games, Stampede contains rich graphics, which allow for a truly immersive experience. You will feel like you are travelling through the African savannas filled with extraordinary animals.
Based on appearances, the game seems like a good find if you are a fan of nature and animals. But does it pay out well, and what are your chances of winning? Is the game more than just a pretty picture?
These are all questions we try to answer in our review below!
Stampede is a high-volatility slot game. What this means is that the slot is very random. Slots with lower volatility offer regular wins. However, slot games with higher volatility could take long to payout jackpots or payout multiple times over a short period.
Return-to-player is set at 95.26%, which is pretty fair for an online slot. We caution you to be wary of this figure given that the slot is highly volatile and offers a big jackpot. The game could recoup that figure in a single payout if a player wins a jackpot.
Stampede is a 5-reel slot game with 1024 paylines. One may think that with a high number of paylines that it is easy to win, but this is not true. Expect to see a lot of spins with tiny wins or no wins at all.
As stated above, the game looks beautiful in visual design, which is expected from Betsoft games. The colors really do make it seem like you are on a safari drive in the heart of Africa.
Here is all you need to know about Stampede’s gameplay and mechanics:
Symbols in Stampede are made up of a combination of theme-related images and poker symbols. With this being a wildlife-themed slot game, it is expected that the theme-inspired visuals would be animals, including an elephant, an eagle, a cheetah, and an antelope.
The game features both a wild and a scatter. The Baobab tree is the game’s scatter whereas the wild has the word “WILD” spelt across it.
Stampede has a pretty massive bet range. The value of a coin starts at 0.02 and maxes out at 1. The maximum number of coins you can bet at one time is 5. With 1024 paylines, you are looking at a minimum bet of $0.80 and a maximum bet of $200.
So, the range is wide enough to meet the needs of both low and high roller players.
The game has two bonus features that help you win more money:
Double Up – after every win, you can play a coin toss game where you can double your winning by guessing the right side of the coin.
Free Spins – land three or more scatter symbols on the reels, and you will earn yourself between 8 and 20 free spins. During the free spins feature, wilds act as dual 3x multipliers which means every win is a big win.
Stampede Final Rating
Stampede is a great game. The graphics are amazing, and the free spins feature offers players chances for incredible payouts.
We will say that the game can be pretty stingy regarding payouts. You may bust your bankroll before it decides to award you with a big win. So, you have to keep that in mind if you are going to chance it.
Overall, we enjoyed our experience, which is why we have decided to award Betsoft’s Stampede a rating of four out of five. It’s a good game, but you are going to have to hope you are fortunate.
