Safari Sam has become one of BetSoft Gaming’s flagship online slot machine games. Launched in 2016, the slot machine contains BetSoft’s usual stunning graphics and potentially showcases the popular safari theme better than most other rival developers’ titles.
Safari Sam isn’t too unique in terms of how wagers are constructed, but there is plenty of entertainment to be had in this slot game all the same.
Look and feel
Safari Sam contains BetSoft Gaming’s main trademark: high-end and quality graphics. The symbols in this game are animated and represented in stunning 3D. More to the point, they contain some very human-like animals, which gives Safari Sam a quirky and comedic quality not found in many other slots with this theme.
Safari Sam’s symbols contain zebras, gorillas, lions, as well as other monkeys and animals you would traditionally associate with an African safari. There is also a pesky hunter and a jungle girl known as Sam. She will do anything possible to thwart the hunter, further adding to the comedy in this game.
Safari Sam features a 5-reel, 30-line gaming format, and players are free to alter those paylines as they see fit.
Coin denominations and the number of coins you stake per line can also be altered, although the lowest coin value is 2p, as is customary for BetSoft Gaming slots. Players can choose to wager anything from a floor of 2p per line per spin, up to a ceiling of £150 per spin on this slot machine game.
In exchange for their bets, players are given a chance to compete to win a non-progressive jackpot which is capped at 500x their total bet in all.
There is no shortage of bonus features in Safari Sam. Wild symbols appear as “wild” logos and can replace all others in the slot. At any point in the game, wild symbols may randomly appear on the reels. When they do, these random wilds may boost your wins with multipliers worth up to 10x the normal rate of pay.
A Wild Animals free spins bonus round is triggered by landing the gorilla, zebra and monkey on the first payline. It doesn’t matter what order they are in. Players can select one of the animals to win up to 25 free spins with a 2x multiplier added to all wins pocketed in the bonus. The slot also contains stacked symbols which can collapse and provide players with further chances to win.
Lastly, a Safari Sam bonus is triggered by landing 3 or more of the scatters on the reels. In this feature, Sam should choose a spot on the map to pocket an instant win cash prize.
