Wild Safari Slots

Wild-SafariWild Safari is a game that puts you in the middle of the African savannah, in a safari that gives you a chance to prepare for an adventure. A safari is a good way to see a bit of the wild side of Africa, if the nature part is the one that interests you, instead of finding out how the people are living. The focus is here mostly on the preparations that our hero goes through, so you get all sorts of objects on the reels, but no animals or birds. It’s a different type of safari themed slot, as in every other one you would get animals.

Wild Safari has the typical 5 reels, but the 25 paylines it brings forward are less normal for this developer. As the major features included, you will find that there is an expanding wild, a couple of scatters, a bonus game and free spins with multipliers. A $12,500 top jackpot is inside, with a value that would be bigger than average for Rival.

Features of Wild Safari

The three major features that get triggered here are the bonus game, the expanding wild and the free spins. There are multipliers and scatter symbols as well, part of the three features I mentioned.

To start with, we have the expanding wild. The symbol used for it is that of a Jeep, a machine that is a must when you visit a safari, the one that protects you and allows you to travel through the group of wild animals. A wild symbol has the power to take the place of another symbol, and it will do so whenever this results in a new win line and prize. It also expands in this case, so you get up to three wild positions on a reel at the same time. However, only two reels can get this wild symbol, the 1st and the 5th ones.

Free Games Feature

An Airplane symbol is the scatter responsible for triggering the free spins of Wild Safari. There are 10 spins given when you have three Airplanes, 20 when you have four and 75 when all five are present. The 3x multipliers attached to all these spins make them even more appealing.


Bonus Game

The only bonus game of Wild Safari gets started when you have a few scatter symbols with cameras on them. They can appear anywhere, but you need at least three to be present.

In this bonus game, you pick the location where you want to start a photo shoot. You get four types of animals for each location, with five chances to take photos.

Betting options and jackpots

For each payline that the game gets to use, the player can bet between $0.01 and $2.50. 1 to 10 coins are selected for each line, with their denominations being between $0.01 and $0.25. As for the total, since there are 25 lines, it can go up to $62.50.

Since the jackpot promises that it will give you 5,000x back, based on the line bet value, you should be able to win up to $12,500 from it. The free spins can take that up a notch, their 3x multiplier bringing it to $37,500.

Design and symbols

It’s not the kind of theme that I’m used to, most safari slot machines will put a lot more animals on the reels, this one having none. Instead, you get a mix of objects that an explorer might use, with journals, knives, costumes, cameras and bug sprays being among the ones that are selected. As you play, you’re looking at the reels from inside a hut, made out of wood and straws. It’s a very attractive game, but I for one would’ve preferred it to be more about the wildlife of Africa.

Symbols: Jeep (wild), Camera (bonus), Airplane (scatter), Map (5,000x), Backpack (1,200x), Colonial Hat (800x), White Outfit (400x), Journal (250x), Binoculars (125x), Knife (80x), Flashlight (40x) and Bug Spray (30x).


Is It Worth Playing?

While I’m not a huge fan of the way the theme was represented on the reels, there is no doubt that it’s of very good quality. Add to that a few more paylines than normal for Rival, a decent spread of features and a good prize, and you get all you need to have fun.

This Wild Safari slot is offered by all online casinos with Rival software, playable either in practice or in real money mode.
