Betting: There are some ways to place your bet on this game, from selecting the wager to firing up the auto bet. The former gives the player a choice to spend from 20p to £100 per spin, so there's plenty of scope for different budgets. The latter option allows you to choose a betting style and the game will decide on the bet for you. This option is included in many ELK Studio slots, and it can be useful for players too.

Wild Symbol: The game's logo is the symbol to keep your eyes peeled for as at takes the place of all but a few symbols. As there are extra rows and paylines within the game, these symbols become even more enticing. It's a standard wild symbol, so there aren't any special functions or multipliers for you to be aware of. It's a great symbol in the base game, but it gets so much better in the bonus round!

Free Spins: The majestic lion symbol is the triggering symbol for free spins and the bonus round of this game. Three of these will unlock the round, and you'll be given three free spins to play with. The lion symbols that unlocked the round will turn wild and be held in place for the duration of the bonus. Each further lion symbol that appears on the reels will add yet another free spin into the game. While three spins might not seem like a lot to start with, those extra sticky wilds and free spins mean that the round can go on for much longer.

Marching Reels: This game plays with military precision, and there's an extra feature that makes the most of this. A full stack of one type of unit; cavalry, footmen or artillery, will trigger the marching reels feature. Your stack of symbols will travel from left to right, awarding a free respin as they go. Not only will you have a full stack of symbols at your disposal, but you'll also get your hands on loads of free respins.
