Bush Telegraph is a great pokies game from Microgaming with 15 payline and offers wilds and scatters with two great bonus rounds that will boost payouts significantly. This game offers multiple betting options, with a max bet of $75 per spin supported.
Bush Telegraph is primarily played as a penny pokies, so it is popular among players with lower budgets. With the max bet button, a $75 instant bet can be placed and there is also an Auto Play feature that can be enabled using the game settings. With this game, the base jackpot is worth 7,500 coins and the free spin round offers 10 spins at triple payouts, allowing the maximum winnings to be generated.
You might think Bush Telegraph would be themed around the Australian Outback. In fact, it’s more generically jungle themed. This 5-reel slot features various symbols including birds, bongo drums and Warthogs, as well as the standard 10, Jack, Queen, King and Ace. With 15 pay lines, this slot game gives you an excellent chance to win, which is further enhanced by wild and bonus icons (which have a great animated feature when you win).
Great for those looking to bet small and just have a bit of fun, with a minimum bet of just 0.01, it is also great for the big spenders with a large maximum bet of 75 coins. If you consider yourself to be an expert slot player, then you’ll be happy to know this game offers both a regular and expert control console. The latter also provides an auto spin feature.
The wild symbol, as you might expect, represents the wild feature. This substitutes for every other symbol other than the scatter and Bongo Bonus.
If you spin 5 Wilds then you’ll win the large jackpot of 7,500 coins. So keep an eye out for these! The seed pod symbols act as the free spin scatters and win you free spins. With 10 free spins awarded initially, this is not the highest out there, but if you happen to have 3, 4 or 5 seed pods appear on your pay line then this will be multiplied by 3 to give an excellent chance to increase your winnings.
Bongo Drums aren’t really anything to do with Australia, which immediately pops into your mind when you hear “Bush Telegraph”, but don’t let that distract you from what is an excellent bonus round.
When three or more Bongo Drum symbols appear across your pay line this bonus round will be activated. Your screen is transformed into a selection of 11 bongo drums. Your task is to choose bongos which contain bonus coins by hovering over them as they play. Once you’ve collected 3 amounts or the collect icon, the bonus round will end.
With between 10x and 30x your original stake available in this bonus round, which shows up fairly regularly, it is an excellent additional feature and one well worth looking out for.
