Rhinos and lions and gazelles… oh my! Will this Safari King slot bring anything new to the table? Nope. Sorry. But it ain’t bad either.
There are so many safari animal casino games out there. Machines like the Raging Rhino slot and the Mega Moolah video slot by Microgaming have popularised the theme and we can’t get away from them.
And this Safari King mobile slot looks good. You have everything you expect, the problem is that, no matter how well it looks, you’ve seen it all before.
Pragmatic Play themselves have Hot Safari mobile slot, so what will make this Safari King online slot stand out? Or is it a sequel?
The moment you open up the game it makes two big points: it’s a high to medium variance slot and it has wins of up to 1,000 times your bet.
Which sounds impressive, especially when you consider how you win. You win by catching the 8 free spins where you get more and more wilds added to reels 2 to 5.
Because as this casino slot has 50 paylines, you need multiple 4 or 5 of a kind wins to get any wins. And the wilds are not common enough in the base game to make a difference.
Which is not a problem, many games have that feature, but here it feels a little old fashioned and a little forced.
Without those lions on the reel, you are just spinning away at a fairly bland animal slot game that wants to be more interesting than it actually is.
But the wins are good, and consistent once you hit the free spins. So that’s hard to beat, even on more interesting games like Journey To The West with its 25 paylines.
All in all, an OK real money slot game that will have a passing appeal to those who love the genre.

Wilds: The Lion is the wild symbol and can be used to replace any other symbol on the reels to create a win on multiple of the 50 paylines. It does not show up on reel 1.
Scatters and Free Spins: The diamond is the scatter symbol and getting 3 triggers 8 free spins. What you basically get here is more wild symbols.
One extra wild is added to each reel every spin, so you can get stacked wild symbols by the time you get to free spins 6.
You can also re-trigger the free spins infinitely.
Another day, another safari animal slot that is all about coming face to face with a pack of lions and hoping you'll survive.
Mostly, you probably won't, cause this is a higher variance slot machine by Pragmatic Play and you're more likely to get stamped on than walk away king of the savannah.
Safari King is a 5 reel 50 payline slot machine with wilds, scatters and bonus games that add extra wilds the reels. It's been done before, and better.
And that's ok, we guess because you can win up to 1,000 times your bet and those extra wilds during the free spins are fun. Just not "out of your seat need to play this game right now" feeling we were hoping for.
Not like 7 Monkeys slot or 7 Piggies games. Check those out if this Safari King slot on mobile doesn't quite hit the right notes.
