There is no shortage of African safari-themed slots out there on the net. Some, including Microgaming’s Mega Moolah, has set the benchmark very high for others to follow. This week, Pragmatic Play had a crack at the genre themselves. However, is their newest release going to hit the heights of its rival slots?
The new Safari King slot is going to have to do something extra special if it wishes to take the crown from the major progressive release mentioned above and others like it. It is a tall order, but the fact that there are 50 lines spread over 5 reels can be seen as a great start.
Awesome African Wildlife
In terms of imagery, there isn’t much to distinguish this new release from its already existing counterparts. The same impressive African wildlife symbols appear on the reels of this release as in other games, and they can dish out tasty wins worth up to 1,000 coins. Bets, on the other hand, range from 50p up to £250 a spin.
Lions appear as wild symbols in the slot and can appear on the second to fifth reels. They can substitute for all barring scatters, as expected. Those scatters can active a free spin feature when they appear on the first, third and fifth reels.
Basic Bonuses and Scatters
Once the free spin bonus round has been triggered, the free spin bonus is triggered. In this feature, players will start with just 8 free games. Wild symbols are added to the reels before each spin, and they are sticky for the duration of the bonus. This gives players an added chance to land wins. Moreover, every additional scatter which pops up on the reels will award another free spin. Players could, in theory, win an unlimited number of free spins.
No other bonus rounds have been included in this new release.
An Average Arrival at Online Casinos
Pragmatic Play’s new Safari King slot doesn’t quite hit the heights set by Mega Moolah and others. It falls a touch short in terms of excitement. However, there are winnings to be taken in this release, and it is a fair slot, if not a great one. Players with a penchant for African safari slots, and those who wish to give this one a go can hope to find it at all leading sites offering Pragmatic Play games this week.
