When it comes to the slots UK players have to choose from with an 'animals and nature' theme, Pragmatic Play is trying as hard as they can to have a monopoly in the market. Whether it's a business strategy or just a personal preference for someone important within their design team, it's a genre that they've come back to again and again. Nobody can blame them for that; they've won awards for slots like Wolf Gold which belong to the genre, and there's no reason why its sequel Mustang Gold won't see them win even more.
You won't find any wolves or mustangs here in Safari King though; this is a slot game all about the kind of wild beasts you'll find roaming the arid plains of Africa, drenched by the sun. Pragmatic Play has been to the safari before with Hot Safari, so this is a different take on the theme from the developer. It's a little more simple and traditional than Hot Safari, but that's a deliberate choice which is intended to appeal to those UK slots players who like things a little more traditional.
Not everything about the slot is traditional; take the layout, for example. Hanging in front of a background of baking-hot grasslands, they’re an expanded five-by-four set, framed by wooden twine. Having an extra five spaces to fill compared to an average slot game means you’ll be seeing plenty more of the slot’s beautifully-drawn animals, which is no bad thing. As we often find when we’re reviewing slots by this developer, we’re tipping our hats to their artists. The creatures look great. They’re realistic without being cinematic, staying on the right side of cartoonish. While you’re spinning and hopefully winning, you’ll be accompanied by a backing track of authentic-sounding African music, which is heavy on drums, with the animals singing along. It certainly sets the tone.
On the reels, we have playing cards 9, 10, J, Q, K, and A here serving as the low-value symbols. Above and beyond them are our cast of animals; prepare to say hello to cheetahs, elephants, zebras, rhinos and some form of wild deer for which we're afraid we don't know the right name. We can tell you everything you could ever hope to know about slot games here at UK Slot Games, but we're afraid that intimate knowledge of the animal kingdom falls outside our remit!
If you’ve read that list of animals and you’re wondering why there isn’t a lion there, wonder no more. The King of the Jungle is here to serve as the slot’s wild, and he can substitute for any other symbol apart from the scatter, which is a crystal.
Gather enough of those crystal scatters, and you’ll be competing for bigger and better prizes in the slot’s singular bonus feature.
The restrained approach to bonus offerings is one of the main ways that Safari King marks itself out as being different to Hot Safari, Pragmatic Play's other safari-themed UK slots game. This is a slot which is designed to be easy on the eye, and easy to play. There are some slots UK players come to looking for an action-packed set of bonuses, and some they just want to have a relaxed and easy time playing. Safari King falls into that camp. There's only one bonus feature here, but once you've triggered it, you'll be glad you did so.
The bonus feature which the crystals scatters provide access to is a particularly generous an expansive free spins round. As the crystals can only put in an appearance on the first, third and fifth reels, you'll need all three of them at once to get things started. The round starts with eight free spins, but it's easy to add to that tally. Every time you see one or more crystals during your free spins, you'll get one additional spin. As this happens quite often, you should get more than eight spins comfortably by the time all is said and done.
Keeping the round going does more for you than just continue to award free spins, too. After each spin, one more wild symbol will be added on every reel from two through to five. Get enough crystals during your free spins to keep the spins coming, and all of those reels could be mostly made up of wilds. That can only lead to wins, and might mean big ones.
Safari King isn’t Pragmatic Play’s biggest, boldest or most exceptional UK slots game. They didn’t intend it to be. This is a solid and functional slot with a great bonus feature, an atmospheric setting, and a playing experience you can enjoy without spending five minutes reading how to play it first. If you’re a fan of the animals and nature theme, we’ve got plenty of them for you at UK Slot Games, and we believe this is another worthy option.
Safari King Developer - Pragmatic Play
Pragmatic Play started working in Malta in 2007, and we don’t think they’ve taken a day off since. They’ve achieved a phenomenal amount in the comparatively short time they’ve been active, eclipsing the output of many providers who’ve been involved in the industry since the 1990s, or even earlier. At last count, there were well over 100 slots UK players could enjoy made by Pragmatic Play, but that number increases all the time. Part of their mission statement says that they’ll release either one or two new slot games every month of every year. So far, they haven’t missed that target once. Sometimes, they even exceed it.
With so much variety, and so many slots released, it would be easy for some of Pragmatic Play’s creations to get lost in the mix. They manage to avoid that by focusing on quality and playability. Their slots are never particularly complicated, but there’s usually enough in terms of modern features to please those who like cutting-edge video slots, as well as a traditional-enough feel to appeal to those who like things a little more classic.
