Bush Telegraph Slots

Bush-TelegraphBush Telegraph is an outback and wildlife style slot machine, from Microgaming, which relies on its cute graphics to attract players and to keep them playing. The drums seem to be a big part of the theme here, as there are present in four different symbols, and I assume they have something to do with the telegraph part of the title, some kind of short distance communication method.

With 5 reels & 15 lines, Bush Telegraph doesn’t exactly sound like a game that is out of the ordinary, but it does better with its features, which combine the bonus games with multipliers, free spins, scatters and wilds. A $37,500 top jackpot completes the image that you should be forming about this game.

Features of Bush Telegraph

While you’re not going to get any surprises from the features mentioned in Bush Telegraph, you’re going to enjoy taking advantage of things like scatter symbols, free spins, 3x multipliers, wilds and even bonus games. All in all, it is a very interesting collection of features.

The wild’s role is well known these days, the symbol being capable of taking the role of another, hopefully assisting the player with a new combo creation. It’s not the only thing it can do though, as multiple wilds on the same win line can create their own combo, paying much better than regular symbols would. Up to 7,500x can be offered by the game through these symbols.

Now, the scatter symbol is another important feature in a modern slot machine, and it is used in this case as a way to give you free spins and regular prizes, without the symbols having to take over regular paylines. Instead, you get three to five of these symbols in random locations, and you get rewarded with payouts of 400x the bet or less, depending on how many there were. The image used to represent the scatter symbol is that of a seedpod.

Free Games Feature

In addition to the prizes I mentioned above, the Seedpod scatters will also give you 10 free spins, plus wins that are tripled for the duration of the feature.


Get another 3+ Seedpods in random positions, and you can retrigger the 10 free spins, with the same multiplier.

Bongo Bonus Game

The Bongo Drums are part of the bonus symbol, and you need a minimum of three to be on an active line, in order for the feature to start up. You will get between 36 and 2,500x from it, depending on the number of triggering symbols and on your luck.


Betting options and jackpots

Between 1 and 5 coins may be used in order to activate a single line, with 15 lines available total. The 75 coins that can be used inside are going to have denominations of up to $1, with $0.01 being the starting point. That means a maximum bet of $75.

The wild symbol is responsible for the big prize being awarded, and it promises a 7,500x multiple. That translates into up to $37,500 cash.

Design and symbols

It’s colorful, it’s themed around cute wild animals, it has lots of pretty graphics in it, but there are the usual playing card elements as well, and they’re as ugly and standard looking as ever. Still, if you don’t let them annoy you too much, you’re going to discover a fun slot machine, which you will have fun trying out.

Symbols: Wild Bush (7,500x, wild), Seedpod (400x bet, scatter), Bongo Drums (bonus), Bush Squirrel (500x), Warthog (500x), Hornbill Bird (250x), Ace (125x), King (100x), Queen (100x), Jack (75x) and Ten (75x).


Is It Worth Playing?

It’s a highly enjoyable game, the features and top payouts being largely to blame for that part, as the design is good, but could’ve been even better.

Bush Telegraph can be found at any Microgaming casino, where you get a chance to play it for real money or in free mode.
