Sizzling Kingdom™: Bison Gameplay and Features – Check This Lot Out!

Simply put, Wazdan’s Sizzling Kingdom™: Bison is jam-packed with bonus features. In fact, there is so much going on that you will not be able to put this slot down. Aside from having a choose your variance option (low, medium, or high), a gamble feature, and three different sized wild symbols, you can look forward to the following:

Wild Rampage Re-spins Feature

Wild Rampage is the first of the main bonus features on the Sizzling Kingdom™: Bison video slot. When wild symbols land on the reels, they can expand to fill their entire reel. However, whenever you land two full-size versions of these symbols on a single spin, it triggers the Wild Rampage feature. Those wilds remain sticky while you get 3 re-spins of the reels. The idea is to land additional wild symbols in the vacant positions. Every time a new symbol lands, the 3 re-spins reset. This continues until you run out of re-spins or you fill all vacant positions with wild symbols. Achieving the latter will award you the Grand jackpot while the former pays out the sum of all wild symbols on active paylines.

Free Spins Feature

This is probably the most entertaining bonus feature on this excellent new slot from Wazdan. This is because it uses the superb Collect to Infinity™ mechanic found in other popular slots such as Sizzling Kingdom™: Bison. You will trigger 8, 15, 25, or 100 free spins when you land 3, 4, 5, or 6 scatter symbols, respectively. This feature has an additional row on top of the standard 6×4 grid. However, that top row is for Collect to Infinity™ symbols only. During this feature, only high-paying symbols, scatter symbols, and Cash & Sticky Cash symbols land on the main reels. You can also re-trigger 5, 8, 15, 25, or 100 free spins when landing  2, 3, 4, 5, or 6 scatter symbols, respectively.

  • Cash & Sticky Cash Symbols: During the free spins, any Collect to Infinity™ symbols will collect the values of Cash & Sticky Cash symbols on the reel below them. Cash symbols only add their value once, while Sticky Cash Symbols remain in place for a set number of spins, allowing the Collect to Infinity symbols to collect that value each time.

Hold the Jackpot Bonus Game

You have to love this bonus feature, as there is so much going on with so many different symbols and variables. Whenever you land 6 or more bonus symbols on a base game spin, you trigger this Hold the Jackpot Bonus Game. like the Wild Rampage feature, you get 3 re-spins of the reels that reset whenever another symbol lands. Also, like the free spins feature, there is an additional row added at the top of the reels. That row can only contain Collector, Mystery, and Cash Cash Rain™ symbols. As for the Cash Symbols, Gallop Symbols, level Up symbols, Countdown Booster symbols, and Collect to Infinity™ symbols, these will only appear on the standard reels.

Each time a new symbol lands, that bonus symbol will stick to the reels until the end of the feature. The aim is to fill all positions on the reels to win the Grand Jackpot. Each symbol does the following:

  • Cash Symbols award 1x to 10x your bet.
  • Collector Symbols above the reels collect the cash values of the symbols on the reels below them.
  • Collector modifier symbols will change the modifier of the Collect symbols before turning into a 1x cash symbol.
  • Collect to Infinity™ symbols, turn the countdown time on the Collector symbol above the reels to infinite.
  • Cash Rain™ symbols appear on the top row and will add 4 cash symbols to the reel below it.
  • Mystery symbols will transform into another bonus symbol at the end of the feature.
  • Gallop symbols run across a row and will add cash symbols or increase the multiplier of existing cash symbols.
  • Level Up symbols increase the level of the Grand jackpot. The values of the Grand jackpot are Level 1 (500x), Level 2 (1000x), Level 3 (1500x) and Level 4 (5000x).

Buy Bonus Feature

Then, to top everything off, you can use a Buy Bonus Feature to purchase one of the three main bonus features outright. You can choose from 4 variants of each bonus, with each costing a multiplier of your current stake.

  • Hold the Jackpot Bonus Game: 6 Cash Symbols and 1 Cash Collect Symbol (50x) / 6 Cash Symbols and 2 Cash Collect Symbols (80x) / 6 Cash Symbols, 1 Cash Collect and 1 Collect to Infinity™ (150x) / 6 Cash Symbols and 3 Collect to Infinity™ symbols (300x).
