Wild animals abound in Safari King where the thrill of coming face to face with a lion is augmented by a medium to high volatility and an RTP of 96.49%.
Lions and rhinos and zebras, oh my!
Safari King has them all and more, taking you on a gold-lit tour of East Africa’s grasslands, putting all manner of exciting wildlife on the reels while creating a backdrop of gorgeous sunkissed acacia trees.
Come on a Safari with the King.
The graphics are lovingly rendered with real care taken to create a beautiful visual style, an animated but not distracting backdrop and a soundtrack that immerses the player in the game’s setting.
The music is a percussion driven tribal beat and the animations are all tastefully rendered with a grass seed effect highlighting the winning combos.
The base game is a five reel slot with four rows. There are fifty win lines threaded across these reels, of which you must play all fifty.
There is a simple bonus game involving free spins (see below for details) and no gamble feature in this Pragmatic Play's offering.
It is a simple, but solid set of game mechanics and should keep all but the most adventurous players happy.
The Wild symbol substitutes for all symbols except the Scatter symbol. It does not appear on reel one.
The Scatter symbol, or Bonus symbol as the game calls it, pays out from all position when you hit three Scatters in one spin. It pays out four times your bet per spin and triggers the Free Spin Bonus.
During the Free Spins, extra Wilds are added to each of reels two to five. Each Bonus symbol that lands anywhere on the reels adds another Free Spin to the player’s total, with no maximum limit on how many spins you can win.
The return to player of this game is 96.49%, a little over our yardstick for average of 96%.
The range of bets on the site we tested ran from a minimum bet per spin of $/£/€0.50 up to a maximum of $/£/€250.00 per spin. This is a little high for those who like to keep their bets in the micro-stakes range but will cover most high rollers nicely.
The volatility of this game is medium-high, which makes it a good match for our slot strategies.
Safari King is a nice little slot. It doesn’t push the boat out much, but it does a decent job with the simple parts it chooses to use.
The return to player and volatility are good enough to get a thumbs up, though, as with most of Safari King’s features, they do so with the very bare minimum of effort.
This gets a recommendation, but not a strong one.
