Big 5’s action revolves around the group of animals called the big 5, the ones that you want to see in Africa whenever you’re going out on a safari adventure. These animals include the lion, the buffalo, the elephant, the rhino and the leopard. They’re all visible in the background picture, but the only animal symbol available has the image of the lion on it. The game is created by Microgaming, and it’s a classic title, which sports 3 reels & 1 line, paying up to $12,000.

Betting & Jackpots

The betting system which was chosen for this game is quite common in slot machines with 1 line. It will require the player to choose the number of coins used for the wager, with the range being 1 to 3 coins. Each coin improves the payouts that you get as well. The value of a coin seems to be standard for Microgaming, starting at $0.25 and reaching $5. The maximum bet in Big 5 is at $15 per spin.

With a wager of 3 coins, the biggest payout you can expect is at 2,400 coins, which would get you $12,000 cash if the denomination was at its maximum value. The Lion symbol is responsible for this jackpot being awarded.


Even though it might seem like the kind of classic title that also has a feature or two to give you, Big 5 is actually a very simple slot machine. All you can do is form combinations by landing the required symbols on the payline. You don’t get a wild symbol or a multiplier unfortunately.


There is definitely an influence on the design from the slot’s African wildlife theme. You will see it mostly in the background picture, where the five big animals are all shown, but there is a lion among the symbols as well. The rest of the symbols are classics, with a Bar 5 logo, with cherries and regular single Bar symbols.


Since there are no features, the game will be a good fit for a player that likes his games that way, as simple as possible.
