African wildlife themed slots have become quite popular nowadays, and it seems like basically all game providers have created at least one. But who doesnt love a great slot, filled with the spectacular wild animals from the savannah and a soundtrack that gives that exciting safari feeling? This is exactly what this new video slot from Pragmatic Play is going for. Its called Safari King, and we are going to take a closer look at what this game has to offer now.
So, Safari King will take us on a trip to the African savannah with its mind-blowing scenery and, of course, detailed images of the stunning wild animals. Its a 5×4 reel slot with 50 paylines and an RTP set to be 96.01%. This is a high volatility slot where you will be able to place bets between worth 0.50 and 250 per spin. The reels are set out on the savannah with trees and high grass in the background. You will play to a soundtrack of African drums and a catchy beat, which is quite standard for this kind of game. Its not the most innovative tune weve ever heard, and we personally think that they could have put a little more effort into the soundtrack, but it still goes well together with the gameplay. There are 13 different symbols in this game. Amongst the low value symbols you will find 9, 10, J, Q, K and A, each one with a different colour. The five high paying symbols are shown as the wild animals – elephant, zebra, gazelle, cheetah and rhino. There is, of course, also a majestic lion amongst the symbols. The lion is the wild symbol, and can only show on reel 2, 3, 4 and 5. A bonus symbol is also featured in the slot and is blue and golden with the word bonus written on it, this symbol only can appear on reel 1, 3 and 5.
You will activate the free spins feature by landing 3 scatter symbols on reel 1, 3 or 5. The scenery will change into the savannah during night-time, and you will be awarded 8 free spins to start off with. There is also a chance to get an unlimited amount of extra free spins during this feature. All bonus symbols that you land while this feature is activated, will give you +1 free spin and they arent very rare, which gives you a chance of ending up with a big number of extra spins. If you manage to land 3 new scatter symbols in one spin, a second round of 8 free spins will be played after the current one has ended. On top of that, one wild lion symbol will be added to reel 2, 3, 4 and 5 in every spin, which makes this feature even more interesting since it increases the potential to get to the big wins.
Overall, we think that Pragmatic Play did a good job with this new video slot. The gameplay is pretty standard, but its easy to trigger the free spins feature which is what makes the game the most interesting. Safari King will be available to play in ScandiBets casino from the 21st of February 2019. Don’t miss out!
