A Review of the Bush Telegraph Slot from Microgaming

If you are at all familiar with Australian terminology, then you are probably aware that the Bush Telegraph way for people who lived in remote villages far from major cities to stay connected with one another as well as the world outside. The Bush Telegraph slot from Microgaming takes that idea and displays it in a beautiful five-reel, 15-payline machine that is chock full of prizes and features.

Boasting an outback theme and symbols such as fruits, birds, warthogs, bongos and poker icons nine through Ace, you'll really feel as if you are in the Australian bush. Whenever the wild, which is the icon that is labeled as such, is used in a winning combination, a cute animation that you can't miss lights up your screen. It acts as any other icon with the exception of the scatter and the Bongos and can increase the number of winning spins drastically.

The Seed Pod is the scatter here and whenever you get three, four or five of them anywhere on the screen, you will win a number of free spins that are associated with a random multiplier. What's more, there's the Bongo Bonus that is triggered whenever three or more of the drums appear anywhere on the screen. When this occurs, the screen will switch to one that shows you 11 different drums. The goal is to keep making selections to reveal coin prizes until you come across the "Collect" symbol.

The betting range here is quite nice in that you can wager anywhere from a penny to $75 per spin, and the 7500 coin jackpot can be quite valuable when you choose to spend the higher coin denominations. Though the graphics are quite simple and not as realistic as some of the more modern offerings, this is still a title that you're sure to enjoy time and time again.
