As the game is played at 25 fixed paylines, you can bet up to 250 coins per spin at the coin denominations from R0.10 up to R5, meaning that your wager can vary between R2.5 and R1,250. The betting range will surely please all kinds of players. Once you adjust the stake amount to your preferences, you can start spinning one round at a time, or choose the autoplay option with up to 1,000 automatic spins during which the preset stake cannot be modified.

The reels are populated with elephants, rhinos, zebras, antelopes and meerkats standing for high paying symbols, while low paying symbols are represented by high playing cards symbols. You need to land at least three matching icons on a winning line in order to win a payout. In addition to five reels populated with symbols, throughout the game the sixth reel is active with a set of multipliers which help you increase your win up to 10x.

The real adventure starts with bonus features. Wild is represented by a lion helping you complete winning combinations by replacing regular symbols. When Wild appears on the central row regardless of the reel it expands covering it entirely. This feature is active in the base game as well as during the free spins and Super Wild Bonus features. The Super Wild Bonus feature is triggered when Super Wild symbol occurs on the central position of the sixth reel. During the feature Wilds are added to each reel randomly providing you with guaranteed wins. What’s more, Wilds landed on the central row expand covering the entire reels and, as they pay, you can easily win the top jackpot. Super Wild Bonus may also be triggered during the free spins feature activated when three or more Scatters depicted as a mandrill appear anywhere on the reels. You are awarded 10 free rounds during which any three or more Scatters may retrigger the bonus game.

The symbols in Hot Safari online video slot may strike you as a bit mediocre, but an overall atmosphere of the game along with its special features make this game a must play. Besides the 400 coin jackpots delivered by five elephants or lions, the real top prize is delivered when five Wilds aligned on the central row expand covering all the cells and you get at the same time 10x multiplier on the sixth reel. In that case all your bets per line are multiplied by unbelievable 100,000x. Former Topgame optimised the game for the mobile devices, so you can enjoy this highly rewarding game wherever you are. Our Rating: 90/100
