Zulu Gold is a slot game with several unique features that can keep the most seasoned players on their toes. ELK Studio has delivered from the gorgeous graphics, a movie-epic soundtrack, dynamic reels, 4×4 symbol blocks, and multiplier free drops. The studios have been able to add this to their list of uniquely immersive gameplays following their well-respected intrepid explorer, Kane.
The Zulu People are a Nguni ethnic group of 10-12 million situated in South Africa and Lesotho in Africa. This has set it apart from other African themed slots, as the Zulu culture is explored and inspired throughout the gameplay. The reel is situated underground, surrounded by decorated pillars, weapons and treasure covered in dust – as if this area was the resting place of long lost Royalty. You’d be forgiven if you think it has been plucked directly from an Indiana Jones movie! Behind the reels itself is a pile of gold and treasure, enticing you into the expansive wins you could achieve in this slot game.
The theming continues into the soundtrack. The African rhythmic, pulsating music sets the tone and fully brings you into the adventure with Kane. Several games with an African theme tend to have an overpowering soundtrack, but not with Zulu Gold. Zulu Gold’s soundtrack contributes towards the gaming experience rather than takeaway. It’s pulsating and dark – dropping you right into the action.

How to Play
Zulu Gold is available to be played across all devices. So, whatever you prefer to play on, Zulu Gold is available on Casino442. ELK Studios put their efforts towards mobile user experience, making Zulu Gold best played on mobile devices. You can drop between 0.20 to 100 coins per bet which you can adjust to the left-hand side of the reel. In addition, there is an autoplay function that is entirely customisable to your taste which can be activated by holding on the Spin button or using the Auto Spin button. Zulu Gold is a highly volatile game, which creates some long win streaks and frequent changes to the grid. The maximum win is 10,000x the total bet – up to 262,144 ways to win.
Payouts are created by matching up to 3 to 6 symbols, bet lines are paid from left to right, and only the highest win per active bet is paid out. Symbols further add towards the African theme, with cave/rock paintings 1×1-4×4 and premium symbols such as buffalos, rhinoceros, elephants, and Kane himself.
Tribal theming means that there are numerous wilds to be found in Zulu Gold, and they substitute any of the pay symbols. The bonus features you will come across are regular wilds, Charged Wilds, Wild Walker, Avalanches, Stacks and Multiplier Free Drops – all of which we will go on to speak about in full further in this review.
Avalanche mechanic is a feature of several ELK Studio games, which many players will be familiar with. It is activated when a winning combination appears, matching symbols are smashed off the reels, and the new ones drop in to replace them. As well as this, a new row is added on, and this can go on for 8 additional rows in total. This continues until there are no more winning combinations, and it reverts back to the standard 4 rows you start off with.
The Wild Walker frequently occur between Avalanches. Wild Walker is a symbol that might appear in any symbol drop. It moves randomly as soon as the symbol drop is completed and leaves a trail of wilds behind, and after that, the potential wins are collected. They remain fixed on the reel and cannot be replaced by 4×4 symbols.
Charged Wilds are activated and persistent between free drops in bonus mode. It is a 1×1 sized wild symbol that gives you extra lives. It does this by consuming lives when it contributes toward one or more winning combinations, eventually turning into a normal wild when only one life remains on the grid.
A Zulu Stack can be activated at any point on the grid. When it appears, you will see anywhere between 2-4 symbols that add extra symbols onto a row and boost the more ways to win. However, they will not replace Wild Walker, Charged Wild and the bonus symbol.
When you land three or more scatter symbols, the Multiplier Free Drops feature will present itself. This is the bonus game feature, which starts at the 4 rows. Once a winning set is achieved, another row is activated:
- 3 bonus symbols: 10 free drops
- 4 bonus symbols: 15 free drops
- 5 bonus symbols: 20 free drops
- 6 bonus symbols: 25 free drops
The multiplier symbol only appears in the bonus game and contains a random multiplier. 3 or more in views sums the multipliers and adds them to the total progressive multiplier. The addition is done before the payout of the current symbol drop, after which the multiplier symbols become inactive. Additional multiplier symbols within the same free drop reactivate all multiplier symbols in view and sum them again. This will end when the maximum number of drops has been reached, or there are no more winning streaks.
Zulu Gold follows after several successful adventures with Kane the explorer, which may have put it at a disadvantage as these games are held to a high standard. However, Zulu Gold does not disappoint and could be argued to be one of the best games in the ‘Gold’ series. With the generous offering of six bonus features, it is sure to be an action-packed whirlwind for any player. If you want to join Kane on his next quest, play Zulu Gold now on Casino442.
