Wild symbol (with Surrounding Wild feature)

The boomerang is a wild symbol on Kangaroo Island. As you probably know, a returning boomerang is a thrown tool designed to spin about an axis perpendicular to the direction of its flight and eventually return to its thrower.

When the Boomerang Wild lands on a reel in Kangaroo Island, it can take a little airborne trip over neighboring spots – just like a real boomerang would – and transform them too into wilds. Merkur has labeled this feature Surrounding Wild.

Scatter

The scatter symbol is a road sign with a kangaroo.

Double-or-nothing

When you win something playing Kangaroo Island, you can elect to risk the money in a daring game of double-or-nothing.

About Kangaroo Island

The Kangaroo Island slot is named after a real Australian island. Kangaroo Island covers an area of 1,701 square miles and is thus Australia’s third-largest island; only Tasmania and Melville Island are bigger. You’ll find this island about 8.4 miles off the southern mainland coast, roughly 70 miles southwest of the city Adelaide.

Kangaroo Island features several nature reserves, including the Flinders Chase National Park on the western side. This national park is known for its big colony of Long-nosed fur seals (Arctocephalus forsteri). Kangaroos are frequently spotted in the park, and so are echidnas and goanna lizards. Koala and platypus were introduced to the park from the mainland in the 1940s.

Kangaroo Island used to be a part of the mainland until about 10,000 years ago when rising sea levels cut it off. Aboriginal stone tools and shell middens show that humans lived here before it became an island. When Europeans first came to Australia, Kangaroo Island was uninhabited and had been so for a very long time, probably at least 2,000 years.

European sealers and whalers started using Kangaroo Island for temporary settlements in the early 1800s, but the first permanent modern-era establishment wasn’t created here until the 1830s. Today, roughly 4,700 people live on the island. Agriculture is the backbone of the economy, but tourism and lobster fishing have been growing noticeably during recent years.
