Top Kenyan Slot Games Today

Kenya is home to numerous breathtaking natural wonders such as the Rift Valley, Maasai Mara, Lake Nakuru National Park, and Hells Gate National Park. The nation of over 53.7 million people, as estimated in 2020,has many avid online casino players and this does not come as a surprise considering Kenya is also home to one of the most lucrative online gambling industries in Africa after Nigeria and South Africa. Kenyan online casino players mostly enjoy online slots, and thanks to the country’s welcoming gambling laws and regulations, they get to play online slots at numerous renowned, reputable online casinos.

The Most Popular Online Slots Among Kenyan Players

Kenya was one of the very first African countries to legalize casino games and various forms of betting. More specifically, gambling activities were legalized with the introduction of the Betting, Lotteries, and Gaming Act in 1966. While gambling activities were legalized fifty-five years ago, the gambling industry in Kenya has taken off not so long ago after international online gambling sites emerged on the scene. The online slots industry has been on the rise as well, and the best options available in Kenya are:

  • Immortal Romance
  • Book of Dead
  • Starburst
  • Jungle Jim
  • Gonzo’s Quest
  • Break Da Bank Again

Immortal Romance

Immortal Romance is one of the most iconic Microgaming slot games. It takes inspiration from vampire movies and television shows which at the time of the game’s release were very popular. Immortal Romance definitely takes inspiration from the Twilight Saga. It boasts a standard gaming grid with 5 reels and 243 paylines. Kenyan players can access the game via all gaming devices as soon as they invest at least 0.30 credits per spin.

As expected from a Microgaming slot game, Immortal Romance, as iconic and popular as it is, offers quite spectacular gaming sessions thanks to its in-game bonuses. Triggering the Chamber of Spin bonus round grants access to four different Free Spins rounds, and these introduce not only super rewarding winning multipliers but also wild transformations.

Players also benefit from an expanding symbol that upon hitting the gaming grid takes over respective reels and helps them with scoring top winnings of 5,000x their stake.

Starburst

Over the years, NetEnt has produced numerous amazing video slots and Starburst is one of them. Starburst has an unusual space theme. The game’s design is rather simple yet very sophisticated and visually appealing. Across 5 reels and 10 paylines the game features, players can across beautifully rendered colorful jewels. Kenyan players also appreciate the game’s wide betting range that goes from 0.10 to 100 credits per spin.

Starburst gaming sessions are all about special replacing wild symbols. These wild symbols make their appearance on the three middle reels and upon appearing on the grid, they can fully expand. Once they expand, respective reels turn into wild symbols and players benefit from re-spins during which players can scoop maximum winnings up to 500x their stake.

Jungle Jim

Jungle Jim is yet another beloved Microgaming video slot that has its loyal fans among Kenyan players. Jungle Jim El Dorado is playable on all devices including mobile devices from 0.25 to 25 credits per spin. As suggested by its name, Jungle Jim is an excellent option for fans of adventurous games as the main character in the game invites everyone to join him on his treasure hunting quest.

Winning multipliers are also available, as well as a great Free Spins round. During the Free Spins bonus, winning multipliers rise up to 15x to bring top winnings of 3,680x players’ stake.

Gonzo’s Quest

Kenyan players are also huge fans of the NetEnt-powered Gonzo’s Quest video slot that, just like Immortal Romance and Book of Dead, is one of the flagship slot games. This Mayan-theme NetEnt game houses 5 reels and 20 paylines, and it can be played on standard and mobile gaming devices with only 0.20 credits invested per spin.

Gonzo’s Quest boasts an unusual Avalanche Reels mode, thanks to which successive winning combos grant awesome winning multipliers that rise up to 5x.

As suggested by its title, players hop on an exciting reel adventure and the main goal is to break into a well-secured bank vault, without all the risks that a real-world heist would carry. To start their gaming journey, players need to invest between 1 and 10 credits per spin.

Trouble in paradise as 2Face Idibia’s wife exposes his unfaithfulness

Nigerian legendary musician 2Face Idibia or 2Baba has been exposed by his wife Annie Idibia for engaging a little bit too much with his baby mama Pero Adeniyi.

Annie dragged her family’s issues to Instagram stories to slam the ‘My African Queen’ hitmaker.

“I am a patient woman. I am not a fool innocent. Your family never loved me from the beginning. No matter how hard I tried. I was never worthy to them,”

“I have made so many sacrifices for you and all your children. God knows I have I tried. Your baby mamas constantly use your children as an excuse for all sort of rubbish.”

She went on to say that the singer and his family have been conspiring to bring him and his baby mama together.

“I try to stay gracious. You are not the first man on the planet to have kids with different women. You can do better. Everything I do is to show the good human that you are.”

“But today, this move is done by you, Efe, Frankie and your family is unacceptable.”

She then blasted him with the baby mama for spending the night together.

“What kind of man takes his kids to Disney and spend nights in the same apartment with his kids and their mother? How many times have you gone to see your kids with Pero? and she stays with you and the kids under the same roof?”

The Nigerian singer has seven kids. Three with this particular baby mama, two with another baby mama and two with his wife.

The couple got married in 2013.

Why Nyota Ndogo lied about a new lover

Singer Nyota Ndogo has been telling fans on her social media that she is in love with a new man, singer Hurricane. But it seems the legendary singer has also been chasing clout and has released a song with the coastal-based singer.

Nyota Ndogo

The Watu Na Viatu’ hitmaker later revealed that the singer had introduced him to his parents and were planning to take the relationship to the next level.

“So wiki Tatu zimepita toka aliponipeleka home kwa wazazi. Nilimwambia kama umeambia wazazi na kijiji unatka kumuoa nyota ndogo lazima niende bila makeup wanikubali nilivyo. @officialpday_hurrikane hakusita siamenikubali nilivyo japo wazazi walikustuka wakisema no huyu huyu WA watu na viatu akasema yes.

Actor Ainea Ojiambo reveals why he fired gunshot at Nairobi CBD

In April this year, actor Ainea Ojiambo hit the headlines after firing shots at Nairobi CBD. The actor has now come out to say that it was for self defence.

Speaking about it to Buzz, the actor said;

“It was just thugs who thought I was a soft guy and they were attacking me. Naturally, I had to protect myself,” he said.

“If I wouldn’t protect myself, they would have taken my gun away, shot me and we would be having one bad gun in the hands of bad people. What most people don’t know is that they also had a gun and they shot back.”

“The matter is being looked into for now.”

The thugs wanted to steal the actor’s Sh400,000 gold chain

“I love gold because when I was young, that’s when I came across gold. I used to put in some ivory and the first gold chain I bought, I was conned,” he said.

“I bought from the streets for Sh20,000 and when I took a shower, it became silver. And from that time, I decided when I want gold, I go to the goldsmith, and that’s where I go to buy all my gold,” he said.

Ainea Ojiambo

He went ahead to disclose that he wears jewellery worth more than Sh1 million.

“That chain they wanted to rob me of is worth Sh400,000. When I walk out, what I have on me is more than Sh1 million: the chains, bracelets, rings.”

Ainea explained how much his jewellery is worth.

“The two rings, one is Sh150,000 and the other Sh170,000. My bracelet is Sh80,000,” he said.

“People invest in gold, why? I can put the money in land but now look the way property has gone down, and in case there is a problem, you cannot run with your land. When you go out, gold has only two languages: how many grams and the karats.”

‘I lost 33kgs,’ King Kaka misdiagnosed, asks for your prayers

Ainea is best known for the roles in the films ‘The Constant Gardener’, ‘Bullion’ and ‘Jack Zollo: My Life in Crime’.

Adding;

“One of them brandished a gun on my head, asking for money yet I was naked on a mattress with one of her friends. Thieves,”

He had been keeping some cash in his house for miscellaneous needs but slay queens robbed him.

This was before he met his wife, Mercy.

The comedian said he has since learnt his lesson and in case he gets another endorsement, he will use the money well, only with his wife.

Lillian has been an excellent First Lady and even though she will do some projects under the Lillian Nganga foundation, we have agreed she can continue with her county projects.

She will be a close advisor as I Govern Machakos County and run for President because I trust her sharp insight and heart. She has always been my number one fan. Our love for each other is permanent but I think at times, space and new directions are important.

I thank God for bringing Lillian into my life and the many ways we have made each other grow. We have had a laugh and at times a tear but all in all we have been a power couple and very happy. We celebrate life and are pleased that we have reached this decision in a mature, agreeable manner.

I am a happy and blessed man and we have agreed we will protect and support each other.”

‘I’m not a suspect but a witness,’ says rapper AKA in defense to fiancee’s death

South African rapper AKA real name Kiernan Jarryd Forbes says he is a witness to the case of his fiancee’s death and not a suspect.

The South African rapper is seeking psychological and spiritual counseling weeks after the death of his fiancée Anele Tembe.

In a statement, the rapper said he was and is still in love with the late.

“WHAT I WILL SAY AS MY TRUTH; I WAS AND STILL AM MADLY IN LOVE WITH A GIRL, CARRYING WHATEVER PAST TRAUMAS SHE FACED BEFORE I MET HER.
I OWN UP TO MY PAST AND CURRENT TRAUMAS, AND THUS I HAVE SUBMITTED MYSELF TO PSYCHOLOGICAL AND SPIRITUAL COUNSELLING FOR MY OWN BENEFIT AND GROWTH.
I HOPE EVERYONE AFFECTED BY ANELE’S TRAUMATIC PASSING DOES THE SAME FOR THEMSELVES, INDIVIDUALY AND COLLECTIVELY, SO THAT WE MAY ALL AFFORD HER SPIRIT THE REST SHE DESERVES AND COME TO TERMS WITH THE CHOICE SHE MADE THAT FATEFUL MORNING OF 11 APRIL.”

Tembe died after falling from the 10th floor of a hotel in Cape Town. The rapper went on to say that his relationship with Anele had its ups and downs just like any other.

“IT IS A SAD DAY WHEN I FIND MYSELF HAVING TO SPEAK TO THE NATURE OF MY RELATIONSHIP WITH ANELE. WHAT MAKES IT EVEN SADDER IS THE KNOWLEDGE THAT SOME OF THE PEOPLE, SHE AND I LOVED & ENTRUSTED WITH OUR DEEPEST TROUBLES, ARE NOW USING THOSE AS WEAPONS TO SET A NEGATIVE NARRATIVE ON MY CHARACTER.”

“I AM A PASSIONATE AND EMOTIONAL PERSON. WHAT I WILL NOT DO AND STAND FOR IS WATCHING PEOPLE ATTEMPT TO DISPARAGE MY NAME AND IMPORTANTLY, ANELE’S CHARACTER TO SUIT A NARRATIVE WE BOTH NEVER SIGNED UP FOR.
WE ENJOYED A BEAUTIFUL, YET CHALLENGING RELATIONSHIP THAT AT TIMES WAS TUMULTUOUS, LIKE ALL RELATIONSHIPS. MADE WORSE BY THE PRESSURES OF BEING IN THE PUBLIC EYE, WHICH WE TOO PLAYED UP TO.”

I don’t have a wife, I have a dem! Njugush corrects Amina Abdi about Wakavinye

He added that he knew the people who were giving out wrong information to the public.

“AS NUMB AS I WAS AT ANELE’S FUNERAL, I TOOK IN EVERY WORD IMPARTED, THE DIRECT ONES AND ALL THOSE FILLED WITH INNUENDOS. I WILL NOT BE A PART OF SPEAKING ON OR EXPOSING OUR TROUBLES AS A COUPLE, TO DEFEND MYSELF FROM ONE-SIDED VIEWS THAT ARE PORTRAYED OUT OF THEIR FULL CONTEXT EVERY STORY HAS TWO SIDES AND SO DOES EVERY VIDEO, IMAGE AND MESSAGE…”

“I AM FULLY AWARE OF WHO THE ‘SOURCES’ ENGAGING MEDIA ARE AND WHAT THEIR INTENTION IS, WHICH IS TO INFLUENCE THE SAPS INQUEST – WHICH THE INVESTIGATING OFFICER HAS STATED NUMEROUS TIMES TO MY LEGAL TEAM AND TO THEM, THAT I KIERNAN JARRYD FORBES, HAVE NOT BEEN NAMED TO BE A SUSPECT, BUT HAVE BEEN NOTHING BUT A COOPERATING WITNESS.”

His statement comes days after a video went viral showing an altercation between the rapper and the late Anele.

Four weeks ago, a funeral service was done and family and friends paid tribute to the 22-year-old before her burial.
