Safari King should have found its way to quite a few online casinos that South African players can access. May be it’s time to spin the reels on this brand new slot at Black Diamond Casino and Box24 Casino, two of the top South African friendly casinos.
Playing for free gives players the opportunity to understand the game. However, the safari excitement is lacking unless you put down real money and go for a spin in the Savannah. Who knows which animals will cross your path and trigger thunderous wins? If you get all elephants you get a maximum return. There is a potential of 1000x your wager per spin.
The normal RTP is 96.49%, which is fairly respectable. The game has 5 reels, 4 rows and 50 paylines. Payouts depend on the symbols ranging from 10x to 150x on low paying symbols and 20x to 400x for 3 to 5 aces. Animals pay higher. If you land a gazelle or zebra the payout is 20x to 400x the line bet. The cheetah and rhinoceros earn a player 500x on a line bet. The minimum bet is 0.50 while you can wager up to 250 per spin, something which should please small players and high rollers alike. Players can bet 10 coins per line, each coin at 0.01 at the minimum.
The symbols are A, K, Q, J, 10 and 9 royal in addition to gazelles, zebras, cheetahs, rhinos and elephants. Elephants payout 20 times the bet if 5 of them appear across a payline. The lion is the wild symbol and replaces all symbols except the bonus scatter. The bonus scatter is the most important one appearing on reel 1, 3 and 5. When it appears on all three then it triggers the free spins feature. Start with 8 free spins and a 4x stake prize in which case one wild symbol appears on reel 2, 3 4 and 5 before you spin. A good thing is there are no limits to free spins that are triggered by the bonus scatter. There’s no doubt that the scatter symbol and free spins is the chief attraction of this game. In order to get into the free spins mode the player has to land 3 bonus symbols on the middle reels. Then there is the combination of wilds and retriggers that take gameplay to a higher level in Safari King with a potential 1000x win if you have a screen full of lions and elephants.
Sad to say there is no progressive jackpot. There is nothing extraordinarily unique or innovative and game-play could be a rehash of other slots but then what players want is something new and a change from the mundane. In this respect Safari King satisfies with some twists and turns and interesting visuals.
New game releases are like movies in some respects. They appear and then become part of the game firmament. Some vanish. Some become blockbusters. Pragmatic Safari King may not be a blockbuster like Lion King but it will certainly keep you engaged for quite a few months until another better one comes along.
