Gamba Mamba might sound like a goofy name but Popiplay clearly put serious effort into crafting this slot. While it is infused with visual elements of African tribes and some Indiana-Jones-esque inspirations, the distinct visual and electrifying gameplay elevate the game beyond many other run-off-the-mill slots featuring the similar theme.
Betting Options and Bonus Features
The layout in Gamba Mamba looks a little exotic at first with its 6x5 structure but that is mostly due to its colorful graphics and the lack of standard paylines. Instead, winnings occur whenever there are 8+ of the same symbols on screen (in any position). The game goes all in on its tribal aesthetics as the paying symbols range from cryptic tribal signs to glowing masks. The golden mask symbol in particular will pay a hefty 50x for a 12+ combo.
In addition, the default RTP of Gamba Mamba is 95.97%, and the game offers an abundance of excitement with its high volatility and 15,000x max win potential. While the payout mechanic already brings some layers to the base game, there is also the Tumbling feature to keep every spin engaging. Whenever a win happens, all winning symbols disappear and new ones fall down the grid, creating chances for satisfying consecutive wins.
To enter the bonus game, players need to collect at least 4 Scatter symbols in the shape of a shiny gold cobra. The number of free spins will correlate with the number of Scatters you land:
- 4 scatters = 10 free spins
- 5 scatters = 20 free spins
- 6 scatters = 30 free spins
Landing 6 Scatters also grants an immediate prize of 100x. In the bonus, there are Egg symbols that represent multipliers, containing from 2x to 100x multipliers. Whenever these symbols hit, they will apply to not just the initial win, but all subsequent tumbling wins as well. Also, if there are more than 1 multiplier on the reels, their values will be added together.
Finally, landing 3 Scatters again will trigger 5 extra spins. Players can also double their chances of getting the bonus by wagering 0.25x more for each bet when they activate the Chance 2x feature. Or they can buy the bonus straight away, which will cost 100x the bet.
Perhaps the best quality about Gamba Mamba is how it immerses you into its mystic world. The attention to detail here is exquisite as every symbol, every animation and sound design is crafted in a way that makes you feel like an explorer in this strange land. And the gameplay packs one hell of a punch! From the tumbling wins to the crazy multipliers in the bonus, Gamba Mamba never fails to create epic moments one after another.
