Win A Beest Slot Machine
Win A Beest is a video slot from Play’n Go. The action takes place on an unusual grid that consists of 5 reels with a 2-4-4-4-2 layout. During the base game, you will have a chance to form winning combinations with 256 ways to win. However, thanks to a special expanding reels feature, you could potentially see that total grow to 1,024 ways to win. In addition, you may also hit some big wins by taking advantage of the free spins available in Win A Beest. Arguably the slot’s most exciting feature is the ability for the reels to expand to 1,024 ways to win combined with the free spins bonus round. During the round, only high value wildebeest symbols along with wilds and scatters will drop. But more on that later.
To form a winning combination, you will need to match at least 3 symbols from left to right on adjacent reels. All wins must start from the 1st reel, the leftmost one on your screen.
Win A Beest takes you on a journey to Africa, where magnificent animals appear frequently. The action takes place under the blue skies of the savannah. In addition, the slot has a rhythmic beat in the background that sets the tone. As you can see in the video below, Win A Beest is fully compatible with all devices. The transition to your mobile device is crisp and clear, meaning you can enjoy Win A Beest on even the smallest of screens.

On the reels themselves, you will find lower value symbols, the four royals J, Q, K and A, which are presented on wooden plates, and high value symbols, leopards, rhinos, lions, elephants and wildebeests. The wildebeest is a special symbol, as you will only need two on a payline to form a small winning combination. Moreover, it is the highest valued symbol, paying out 0.5, 1, 2 or 5 times your stake for 2, 3, 4 or 5 across a payline, respectively.
In addition to the standard symbols, Win A Beest also comes with 2 wild symbols. They both will substitute for all standard symbols, except the scatter, and are represented by the Wildebeest’s horns. However, some wilds will come with a 2x multiplier attached to them. When you form a winning combination with a 2x multiplier wild, your payout will be doubled. As for the scatter, it is a sunset over the savannah and it is key to triggering the free spins bonus round.
To get the reels spinning, you will need to set a stake first. The betting ranges from a minimum €/£0.10 up to €/£100 per spin. You will be able to adjust the stake using + and – buttons sitting just below the reels. In addition, there is an autoplay function, with up to 100 auto spin available. The auto spins can be set with win and loss limits.
There are three main bonus features in Win A Beest. To start with there is a randomly triggered Beest Mode feature that expands the reels to give you 1,024 ways to win. Moreover, this may lead to the Beest Mode free spins, where only high value wildebeests land, along with wilds and scatters. Lastly, the Stampeding Spins feature is triggered by scatters in the base game and is the slot’s most rewarding feature.
At any point in the base game, the Beest Mode feature can trigger. This will see all reels expand to have 4 rows each. In doing so, the number of paylines will reach 1,024 ways to win. Get ready for massive payouts as the very next spin after the reels expands will see only wildebeests, wilds and scatters land on the reels.
But that’s not all! During the Beest Mode, landing 3 or more sunset savannah scatter symbols will trigger Beest Mode Spins. Landing 3, 4 or 5 scatters on the expanded reels will see you receive 4, 6 or 8 Beest Mode free spins respectively, along with a 5 times your stake payout. The Beest Mode Spins can be re-triggered, leaving you with an unlimited number of free spins available during this bonus round.
Similarly, the Stampeding Spins feature will also work in your favour. By landing at least 3 scatter symbols during the base game, you will trigger the Stampeding Spins. Indeed, landing 3, 4 or 5 scatters will get you with 8, 12 or 20 free spins respectively. The bonus round is similar to the Beest Mode Spins as they see your reels expand to 1,024 ways to win. Once more, there is an unlimited number of re-triggers available during the Stampeding Spins bonus round.
Your best bet of claiming the 10,240x top prize is by playing with expanded reels and high valued symbols. However, to do so, you are going to need to form winning combinations with 2x wild multipliers. They are more likely to fall in the bonus features than in the base game. Thus, you are going to want to stay in the Stampeding Spins bonus round for as long as you can.
Win A Beest has an RTP of 96.12%, which is slightly above the average. In addition, the Play’n Go slot is in the mid-level for volatility, with a rating of about 6/10 for variance, ensuring wins are regular.
It is clear that Play’n Go put a lot of effort in their Win A Beest slot. The journey to the African savannah is always an enjoyable theme and Win A Beest takes it to the next level visually. The graphics and simple cartoonish design suit the slot perfectly.
