A video slot that gives you a multiplier on almost every single win? And expanded wilds? And free spins bonuses? It’s possible, thanks to this Hot Safari slot.
We will be the first to say that Pragmatic Play have’t been the greatest when it comes to casino slot themes.
Chilli Heat is a generic Mexican slot, Gold Rush is a generic prospecting slot… and so, this Hot Safari casino game is a generic animal adventure slot.
Don’t misunderstand and think that it’s not well done; the high paying animals are beautifully detailed, the prowling lion is majestic, and the hot golden savanna makes you dream of African sunsets.
It’s just nothing that makes it stand out from the pack of so many Safari online slots out there.
You get 5 by 3 reels and 25 paylines as you’d expect which work exactly as you’d think.
The king is the golden lion, who if he shows up on the middle row, will also expand to cover the whole reel; which brings some decent wins.
But only because of that 6th reel on the right-hand side which spins independently and promises you a multiplier up to 10x on any win – similar to Aztec Gems online slot.
Mostly, when you do win, you get maybe a 2x or 3x multiplier, but every so often those 5x or 6x multipliers really kick up your game play a notch.
On paper, you get 3 scatters than give you 10 free spins and nothing else.
Which is true, but you can re-trigger the free spin games quite easily, and don’t forget, the star of the show is that 6th reel.
So sure, the Hot Safari free spins are really only there to give your wallet a break, but it’s a nice break, and those multipliers are always there by your side.
On that 6th reel, every once in a while, you end up finding the super wild symbol.
Here a wild symbol will be added on each of the 5 reels, not just guaranteeing you a win, but if you line up those 5 wilds, giving you 100,000 times your line bet.
We’ve managed to get wins of over 100 times our bet, which is amazing, and easily around 40x to 50x our bet on a bad ‘super wild’ spin.
It’s what made us Hot Safari slot converts and what will bring us back to this Pragmatic game again.

Wild: The Lion is the wild symbol and can be used to replace any other symbols to create a win on the 25 paylines.
If the wild lands in the middle row, it will also expand to cover the whole reel.
6th Multiplier Reel: There is a 6th reel that spins at the same time than the 5x3 reels, but lands on a multiplier from 1x to 10x.
If you do get a win, that multiplier comes into play.
Super Wild Bonus: In the 6th multiplier reel, you can land the super wild bonus which is when things get really exciting.
You are then guaranteed a wild on each of the 5 reels, and as the highest paying symbol, that's pretty exciting.
You also get a spin on the multiplier reel, so you could get 10x multiplier on a 5 of a kind wild win.
Scatters and Free Spins: 3 monkey scatters anywhere on screen triggers 10 free spins.
You can re-trigger this bonus indefinitely, and those 6th reel multipliers are always in play, including the super wild bonus.
It may not look any different from the likes of IGT's Golden Jungle or Playtech's White King, but this Hot Safari slot on mobile has plenty to recommend it.
Mostly it's that 6th reel which gives you a chance at a 10x multiplier on any spin and the super wild spin.
Because no Android or iPhone slot was ever made worse by giving us more wild symbols.
A very enjoyable Pragmatic Play game that is worth a few spins.
