Character Introduction of Symbols

Before we get into the breakdown of the game let’s meet the characters that are the game symbols.

  • Merkats in a jeep
  • Treasure chest
  • Ostrich that appears has a bolas wrapped around his legs
  • Springbok,trying to escapt a net trap of some sort
  • Rhino holding stop sign, he appears to have a park ranger uniform on
  • Harpoon Gun
  • Knife
  • Springbok Crossing Sign
  • Bear Trap (baited with a T-Bone Steak)

Those were just the regular symbols. There are also meerkat wilds and the scatter symbol.

Matching Symbol Payouts

Reminder, when matching symbols, you must have 3 4 or 6 of that same symbol for a match. Below we have shown the matching symbol payouts:

  • Meerkats in a jeep match 5 for 500, match 4 for 200, match 3 for 100, and 2 for 10
  • Treasure Chest match 5 for 300, match 4 for 100, match 3 for 25, and 2 for 5
  • Ostriach match 5 for 200, match 4 for 50, match 3 for 15, and 2 for 3

  • Knife or the crossing sign, match 5 for 50, match 4 for 10, match 3 for 3

Wild Symbols

Although some have stated the 4 meerkat wild symbols are rebels, they are somewhat the heroes. As we said above they are on a mission to help save the other animals and increase your slot winnings when you see them.

With some digging e found their names. They are Scout the 1X wild, Hunter 2X, Muscle3X, and Commander Meerkat 4X.

When they appear, (on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5) they substitute for all symbol except the scatter and will multiply the win by their respective amount.

Only the highest wild multipler is used when you bet multiple wilds.

Scatter Symbols

In our opinion the scatter symbol appears as the most menacing meerkat, but he is kinda cute too. Not sure what weapon he is holding but is likely to scare the animal poachers away and release the winnings.

Getting 3 or more scatters anywhere on the game board will trigger the Free Games with stages Feature.

There are up to 4 stages of free games you win, depending on how many re-triggers you get,

Stage 1 is 7 free games, and if retriggered 7 more added. Stage 2 is 8 more free games with more added for re-trigger. When you move to stage 3 you get 9 free games and moving to stage 4 is 10 free games.

As you can see, the meerkat scatters can be a huge boost to your winnings. Visit the pay table page for the full explanation if you need it clarified.


After being slightly skeptical initially, after we read more about this game we were impressed.

The amount of free spin options with the scatter re-triggers and how the win can climb makes a big difference.

And we have to admit, knowing the back story after reading the press release, and the fact the symbols each have names, just ads to the entertainment value.

So visit one of the RTG casinos we have listed, and have a spin at Meerkat Misfits, and get to know the meerkat guys, and you too will be calling their names when they appear.
