The Super Safari slot with its bright and colourful theme is ideally suited for the smaller phone screen. Don’t let the child like theme trick you though, these wild animals pack a punch.
We were not sold on the theme when we first saw the graphics of this fun little slot. A dash on the ridiculous side, Super Safari mobile slot takes the childlike theme to the extreme.
We like cute and bubbly, but hopefully anyone playing this mobile slot is over 18 years old and might not appreciate symbols straight out of animal cracker jacks.
And then we played on our mobile screen and smiled. It’s amazing how on the smaller screen, a simple bright colourful theme can actually be an advantage.
You don’t need complicated, just something that will pop out of your small screen and appear bigger than it is. Super Safari does just that. On tablet, we have to say that it loses a little of the impact, but it’s still incredibly good fun, with grazing giraffes in the background of the screen moving across the planes adding a touch of thought to a NextGen slot.
This isn’t just another cookie cutting slot from the team over at NextGen. This one has been carefully thought out: it even has original sounds, a unique aspect for NextGen online and mobile slots. Every symbol in the reel is different and the little video graphic of the wild king lion jumping out of the screen or the scatter car coming at you to continue onto its journey into the savannah plane is fairly enchanting, in a child-like way.
Best of all, from what we can understand from playing Super Safari, this is a fairly medium volatility mobile slot. Meaning you might not always get your bet back, but when the features hit (and you’ll need a little patience for that too) they hit with a bang. The pick me bonus, for example, can pay out as much as 150x your bet. Now there’s number to spike our interest.
Working very similarly to the Medusa mobile slot (one of our favourites) Super Safari is not quite as serious as it’s big sister slot, but still has plenty to recommend it, including two free spins features, expanding wilds and super free spins with 5x multipliers. To be enjoyed with a certain child-like glee.

Wild: The King of the Savannah is the Wild, a smug looking Lion that pops up on reels 2, 3 and 4 and substitutes for all symbols except the scattered hippo, scattered car or the binoculars.
Hippo Pick Me Bonus: The least impressive of the features, and yet the one more likely to get you the big hits, this little feature pops up when you see three scattered hippo symbols on the screen. These fat purple giants can grant you up to 150x your bet, but we found it seemed to average out at about 50x to 60x your bet. Pick again and win all can be awarded where you... euh... we probably don't have to spell it out do we? Ok fine. Where you can either pick another hippo or win all the prizes hidden under the hippos. Happy now?
King of the Jungle Re-spins: Not an easy feature to hit (as soon as we said that we hit it twice within a couple of minutes. Typical!) this feature is triggered when three lions appear on the screen. At this point reel 2, 3 or 4 will become an expanded wild and you'll get 3 re-spins. Fun, but not as hard hitting as the real free spins of the game.
Off Road Safari: Now we are cooking. Or Safariing (is that a word?). Anyway, this feature is the one you'll be chasing the whole time you are playing. Get 3 or more scattered cars on the screen and you'll trigger 10 free spins with a 2x multiplier. So so you say? Yes ok, but these can be re-triggered AND the binocular symbol is added to the reels. When these beautiful eye pieces show up, you'll accumulate 3 'super free spins' each time, which will be played after the normal free spins session has ended. The Super Free Spins come with an impressive 5x multiplier that knows how to keep even the wildest cat purring. Generally we found we got on average about 6 super free spins, but we did get 12 once which really made a different to our bank roll.
Considering how childish this mobile slot looks, this wild game is more suited for players with a little experience who know how to handle their bank roll. You'll need a little patience to hit the features, but meanwhile Super Safari pays out often enough that if you are careful you can keep playing for longer than you thought.
It is more suited to the mobile than tablet screen we thought, but that's probably more down to personal taste. Ultimately Super Safari mobile slot has some great features, especially a couple of free spins features that come with a bang and pick me feature which, surprisingly, also gives decent payouts from it's hungry hippos.
Job well done on this fun mobile slot that will suit a wide variety of players. Definitely worth a fun spin or two.
