You can find plenty of examples in the slot industry of a company releasing a slot that proves to be a smash hit, and then other companies follow suit with markedly similar games. Sometimes these games can be crackers in their own right, but other times they are a pale imitation of the original.

Well with Saucify's Big Game slot, we are visiting the realm of an African Safari on a 30-pay line slot and if that sounds rather familiar, then that will be because that is pretty much the basis of the famous original MegaMoolah.com slot. Indeed, a quick glance at this slot reveals that while it is not a progressive, it is clear that Mega Moolah is the inspiration for this Saucify release.

Those are some pretty big boots to try and fill, so does the Big Game slot do that? We decided to take a closer look to find out.

Where can I play the Big Game slot?

If you would like to try your hand at the Big Game slot for yourself, then one of the best casinos you can consider for the offer is Slots Capital. Part of the reason for that, alongside its extensive range of slots from Saucify Games and other providers, is the casino's great value starter bonus, which is ideal for those numerous lower stakes' players.

To qualify for this massive 400% Matched Deposit Bonus, all you need to do is deposit $25 into your newly created Slots Capital account. When you do, you will receive a bonus of $100 added to your bonus funds, giving you a huge $125 to play with on the site. What better way to start on a new site than with a burgeoning account to trial any number of the top slots available on site?

Another option is Desert Nights Casino, which is currently offering new customers a free $10 no deposit bonus to trial the site and then you can also earn a fantastic 250% Welcome Bonus when you make your first deposit of at least $25 into your account, with a maximum bonus payable of $2,550, this is an offer which may appeal more to the mid to higher stakes punters who tend to deposit more into their account each time.

Presentation

The feeling that you are going to play a slot that is inspired by Mega Moolah is evident from the moment that you load up the Big Game slot. It uses the same Savannah silhouette approach as the Mega Moolah slot and even the font used for the title of the slot is similar to the famous Microgaming slot.

As I have said, I don't mind this at all provided the end result is a playable slot. To that end, there are five reels in the middle of the screen and each of the 30 selectable pay lines are selected initially, but you can opt to decrease this number if you so choose.

There is a rather nifty drum soundtrack that sounds while you are playing that is unobtrusive, but otherwise the sound in the slot is rather weedy and not as evocative as it should be. The noises played when you win a line are just an assortment of odd beeps and whistles with the sound of the winning creature played and it does feel a little half-hearted.

Overall the presentation is acceptable, but could have been markedly better and slicker.

What's on the reels?

One positive in the Big Games slot is that there are none of the playing card low symbols on the reels. Instead Saucify have populated the reels with an assortment of different animals. In terms of standard symbols, there are ten different animals in total on the reels here.

These are, in order from lowest value to high, the meercat, the monkey, the hyena, the ostrich, the zebra, giraffe, buffalo, cheetah, hippopotamus and rhinoceros. Wins range from just a small percentage of your total bet, up to 3,000 coins.

The symbols are done in a cartoon style and a number of the symbols are not dissimilar to those on the Mega Moolah slot. However, I feel the style of graphic isn't the highest quality and the game does look a little basic as a result.

The other two symbols are the Elephant Scatter symbol and the Lion Wild symbol (again, the same as Mega Moolah) and these are the keys to the main bonus features in the slot.

Wild features

The Lion Wild serves two functions. It appears on any of the five reels and when you land it, it can substitute for any of the standard symbols in the game to help create a winning line. When you land a Lion Wild as part of a win, it also gives you a 2x multiplier on that win, doubling the amount you pocket.

However, the Lion Wild is also the highest paying symbol on the reels offering payouts ranging from 5 coins for 2 Lion Wilds in a row, up to the jackpot of 6,000 coins in the base game for five across a single pay line.

Free Spins features

The Elephant Scatter offers you a chance to land two different prizes. First up, if you land two or more Scatters anywhere on the reels, you will win a prize of between 2x your bet and 100x your bet.

Land three, four or five Scatters on the reels and you will trigger 10, 15 or 20 Free Spins respectively. During Free Spins, you will also receive a 3x multiplier as standard on all wins you land and best of all, if you land three or more Scatters during the Free Spins round you will trigger another set of Free Spins to be added to the original number you landed.

Obviously, with the 3x multiplier in play, Free Spins is where most of the bigger value wins in the game will come, with up to 18,000 coins available to be won in this part of the game.

Other bonus features

Other than the bonuses listed above, there are no other bonus features on the Big Game slot.

Best feature of the Big Game slot

As a tribute to Mega Moolah, the Big Game slot is probably as close as you can get to playing the slot, without the attraction of the progressive jackpot, and weird as that sounds, this may well be the best aspect of the game because players will be very familiar with Mega Moolah, so will feel that Big Game offers them a chance to play a similar game, for a similar price, but with a slightly different focus. The Free Spins bonus round is the best feature in the game by far, but it can be tricky to hit at times.

What does the Big Game slot lack?

Although this game is clearly inspired by Mega Moolah, the fact that it lacks a progressive jackpot of any size, or indeed a larger base game jackpot, does mean that players that try it due to its similarity will probably feel a little disappointed that these are not available. I also feel the presentation wasn't as good as the majority of other Saucify Games title and I feel this slot looks a little rushed and unpolished compared to some of their other titles.

Conclusion

There's no harm in using one of the most popular slot games ever as your inspiration behind a new game, slots companies do this all the time and in many ways, Saucify have got the main aspects of the Mega Moolah slot incorporated into this game, but there are some stark omissions, namely those big jackpot prizes. I also feel the game isn't presented as well as it should be and that does detract from the game a good deal. It is a decent game if you are happy to play for smaller jackpot prizes, but I think it pales compared to the original.

Ratings

  • Presentation: 11 / 20 - It is fair to say that I wasn't blown away with the presentation of the slot. The sound in particular was somewhat weedy and ineffectual and the graphics were somewhat simplistic. One positive was the lack of playing card symbols in the game, but I feel that it lacks the polish of many other Saucify titles.
  • Game-play: 12 / 20 - There's no denying that this slot has Mega Moolah heritage but I feel that the game play is somewhat diminished as the same wealth of rewards in the original slot are not here in the Big Game slot. If you base a slot on Mega Moolah, then omitting its most exciting features is not the wisest move and without that excitement, the game-play is somewhat flat and uninspiring. Essentially just a Mega Moolah clone, with much smaller prizes on offer, but for 0.05 more per spin if you want to play all pay lines.
  • Bonus Features: 12 / 20 - We have the standard Free Spins bonus game and the Wild symbol as the main bonuses in the slot and both are used in the same way as they are in Mega Moolah. The Wild offers some decent base game wins but the Free Spins bonus is the best way to win bigger value prizes on the slot
  • Entertainment Factor: 10 / 20 - I think the Big Game slot suffers from the fact that it so clearly inspired by Mega Moolah as players cannot help but compare the two games when playing and while Big Game is not a bad slot by any means, and can be fun to play, it just lacks the excitement of the original. As a standalone slot, it is not bad by any means, but it just doesn't have the hook to grab you in and keep you spinning the reels.
  • Play Value: 13 / 20 - It was tricky to judge the play value of this slot as sessions proved to be somewhat different when we trialled the game. However, I think as a medium variance slot, it works pretty well, Some sessions offered little in the way of rewards, but others saw us land some nice wins, especially when you could trigger that elusive Free Spins bonus game. If you can hit this once or twice, especially with a re-trigger of Free Spins, then you can land some good value wins.
  • Overall 58 / 100 - Big Game is pretty much a clone of the basic game of Mega Moolah but unfortunately it lacks the same impact and excitement of the original. The slot isn't helped by some really disappointing sound and rather bland visuals, but it does have some positive moments when playing and the multiplier in the Free Spins round can lead to some good value wins. The problem is, it will always be compared to Mega Moolah and in that respect, the Big Game slot will always be shot down.

Good Luck!
