Feel the roar of the majestic lion as you travel through the savannah on Safari King, a 5×4 video slot from Pragmatic Play. Enjoy your safari tour with gazelles, leopards, rhinos, and elephants on a sunny day. Then hit the free spins to join the lion on his nocturnal hunting tour with more wild lion symbols being added to the reels for wins of up to 1,000 times your stake on a single spin.
Safari King is a video slot with five reels, four rows and 50 fixed pay lines. You can start your safari for as little as 0.50 per spin, up to a maximum of 250 credits. The RTP of this medium to high variance game (4/5) is set at 96.49%. The slot is available for play on desktop and mobile devices.
A tranquil savannah scene is the backdrop to a wooden-framed game window with HD graphics and a dark red background with a native design. The premium symbols are all animated when they are part of a winning combo, with the most impressive one being the roar of the lion. A catchy bongo tune will have players swinging through their slotting sessions, although the earthshattering roars from the lion and the elephant might rattle them.
At the low end, you will find the usual card royals from 9 through to A, followed by the gazelle, the zebra, the leopard, the rhino and the elephant. Only the latter appears in super stacks at all times. Pays for a single five of a kind range from 3x to 20x the stake. The lion is the wild symbol, appearing on reels two to five only. An intricate tile with the word ‘Bonus’ is the scatter symbol.
Hit scatters on reels one, three and five in one spin to trigger 8 free spins. The scenery changes to a night setting when the lion is normally seen on his hunting tours. Any bonus symbol landing on a free spin will add +1 spin. Hitting again three scatters will award a second round of free spins which is played after the current one has ended.
On every free spin, one additional wild lion symbol is added to each reel strip from reel two to five, increasing the potential to hit a full stack of wild symbols. The more free spins are won the more wild lions are added and the higher the chance to hit the maximum win in a single spin, which is a screen with stacked elephants or in combination with wild lion symbols.
Did we get our safari gear on after spinning the reels on this Pragmatic Play slot? Admittedly, it is a rather simple slot with just a free spins round which is very different from the usually feature-rich games from this provider. But it looks stunning and plays actually well with no long dry spells that drain balances fast. The free spins triggered frequently enough and returned on average 60x – 80x bet, with the occasional 200+ times bet, which should be sufficient to end the safari on a high.
