Primal Hunt Slot Review

In Betsoft Gaming's Primal Hunt, travel back to the Stone Age and explore the dark and strange caverns. To increase your prizes, use your weapons for hunting down the cave lion.

When I think of this game, I imagine myself standing in the middle of nowhere, just about to wee in my pants out of fear and the first thing I want to do is call for help. Oh, wait for a second, I can't check my Facebook either. I hear roaring coming from the distance. What am I supposed to do? On the one hand, I'm starving, and on the other hand, the one thing the lion and I have in common is that we are both ravenous, but only one of us is going to get lunch … shit.

Game Play

A wager between $0.10 and $20 will be selected for each spin. These options are all listed at the bottom, so you pick a value that you want to use to cover all 80 lines. For the slot's payouts, up to 4,420x, the stake is offered apparently, with a value of $88,406 for the highest wager. It's a decent level for a slot machine described as having medium-high volatility. The RTP is also correct; at 96.10%, it shouldn't be an issue for anyone.

To give you an idea of the kind of experience you will get, the hit frequency figure tells us that about 1 in 7 rounds (14.33%) wins during paid spins, though about 46.69% of all free spins will bring you prizes. This is because the dry spells will be coming during the regular rounds, and your target is to reach the free spins (1 in 159 rounds Free spins will be available in this game as well, to be triggered via scatters landing three times on the reels). The image is that of the Hunting Cave Lion, a scatter that lands 3, 4, or 5 times to trigger 8 to 20 free spins and pay a prize.

The 2x or 3x Wild Multiplier will be of great use to you when you can get it to appear and lend a hand (possible for the free spins only). In addition, you get to use these as substitutes, improving the number of wins that are formed and their value. These appear on the middle reels, and if several contribute to a combo, they multiply each other, giving a potential boost of up to 27x to wins. Of note, here is also the Cave Lion symbol, which appears stacked and capable of covering an entire reel.


The nostalgia of simpler times will often come with the knowledge that it's better in our era than in the distant past, so Primal Hunt will appeal to us on one side, same as many other slots that take action to the caves of those using stone tools. The presence of cave lions on those reels will remind us why we're doing a lot better these days, even though we're not as carefree as the past people. Betsoft Gaming gives us an idea of what the life of the cavemen was like, in Primal Hunt.

They designed Primal Hunt with 5x4 reels, on which you will discover an impressive number of lines, 80 of them in total. The slot will have to scatter symbols, free spins, expanding symbols, wilds with multipliers, enough to turn the game into something enjoyable. They couple these features with high volatility gameplay, but then they add a jackpot of up to 4,420.3x the stake ($88,406), while the RTP ends up at 96.10%. Primal Hunt is all about the distant past, the first few steps humanity has taken throughout its relatively short history. We're looking at the cavemen of the Stone Age, at some of their tools (Spear, Axe), but also the cave lions that prayed on them. Other symbols come either with various stones with drawings on them (horses, antelopes, mammoths, bison) or with crude Royals, made out of stone and tied with rope. Again, excellent design, and even the Royals look somewhat appropriate for this theme.


Primal Hunt slot is one of the more exciting options that Betsoft has designed for its veteran players. The higher risk involved with it will make it unsuitable for those looking to have some fun, but those willing to try it out anyway will get their chance at a decent top jackpot of over 4,400x the stake.

Max Coin

Maximum win of x4,420.3 and a Jackpot up to $88,406.


This certainly is a time warp. The Stone Age began about 2.6 million years ago. Caveman discovers weed. Caveman discovers fire. Stone Age begins.
