Pride and Prey

Pride and Prey

Pride and Prey has less than nothing to do with the similar-sounding Jane Austen novel of the same name. Instead, this Red7 developed slot machine is based on the African wilderness, in particular, the animals of the savannah plains. The Red7 slot is one of the more basic titles you will come across when playing online. That shouldn’t be a surprise, as Red7 is a relatively inexperienced and young software provider.

The Pride and Prey slot features just 20 paylines spanning its 5 reels. However, Red7 is aiming to make a name for themselves by making this game as cheap as chips to play. Wagers on all twenty lines will set you back as little as 10p a turn. If you do wish to flesh out your bets, you can wager up to £200 a spin on the game. Unfortunately, the prizes are a little on the petite side in this simple slot. Payline wins are capped at 20x a stake. The silver lining is that Pride and Prey has one of the highest RTP (return to player) rates around, at 97.52%.

Special features

If players want a little assistance in landing a win, wild symbols are a dab hand at providing that. The icons appear as wooden signposts (with “wild” written on them), and they can substitute and replace any other symbols, barring the scatter icon.

Those scatters show up as lions. Lions can trigger a free spin bonus round if they appear on the first, third and fifth reels at the same time.

This slot also offers a series of rewards for players. These can be won by achieving various tasks in the slot. Players can nab instant win cash prizes which range from 1x up to 25x a stake, based on the accomplishments they have in the game. Those challenges include having a number of non-winning spins in succession, bagging several winning spins in succession, completing large numbers of base game spins, triggering the bonus round many times, and bagging Wild Slashes, which we will look at in closer detail now.

Bonus features

Once players have landed three lion scatters, the free spin bonus in Pride and Prey begins. In the round, players will start with a total of 8 free games. More can be won when additional scatters appear on the reels. Unfortunately, standard wild symbols do not appear on the reels of the free spin bonus. However, the lion can use its kitty claws to slash symbols on the reels, therefore turning them into wilds. This is known as the Wild Slashes feature mentioned above.


Pride and Prey has an exciting way of dishing out bonuses to players, and that makes it stand out. This is a more than reasonable effort from the fledgling casino software provider. Games such as this are likely to see the developer gain more attention in the future. If you haven’t tried it yet, Pride and Prey is worth a punt.
