NextGen Gaming invites online casino players to go hunting for big game jackpots in Super Safari, a 5 reel, 25 payline animal themed video slot. It comes with a trio of bonus features including re-spins, free spins and a pick me bonus round that offers payouts of up to 750 times your stake. Take to the plains from between 25p and £50 per spin.
Slots from NextGen aren’t usually packed full of feature rounds but Super Safari is an exception, offering no fewer than 3special extras. First up is the King of the Jungle Re-Spins feature which is triggered when the lion wild becomes stacked on any of the middle 3 reels – you’ll be awarded 3 re-spins with all wins subject to a 3x multiplier and tripled.
Next comes the Off Road Safari feature – you’ll be awarded 10 free spins with all winning paylines doubled when 3 or more car scatter symbols appear anywhere on the reels. Look out too for the binoculars symbol which is added to reel 3 during the feature.
When this hits, you’ll be awarded up to 3 Super Spins (which are played after the normal free spins). All wins during the Super Spins are boosted by a 5x multiplier. It’s possible to trigger both extra free spins and even more Super Spins during the Off Road Safari making a very lucrative option.
Finally there’s the Hippo Pick Bonus feature which is awarded when 3 scattered hippos appear. You’ll then get to pick one of the hippos with prizes of up to 150 times your stake on offer. If you find the hippos during the Off Road Safari the maximum prize goes up to 350 times your stake but if you find them during the Super Spins, and it goes up to a whopping 750 times your stake!
The features are impressive so what about the visuals? The one-screen images are cartoon style and include a selection of animal symbols such as monkeys, zebras, giraffes and crocodiles. The biggest paying of the standard symbols are the hippo which offers 2,000 coins for a 5 symbol combination and the elephant which will give you a cool 5,000 coins.
The reels are nice and clear against the green, savannah backdrop. The action plays out to an African-inspired backing track which matches the theme perfectly. Super Safari is a real all round entertainer – the gameplay is nice and slick and there are plenty of features on offer.
They don’t hit all that often but can produce some impressive results when they do. Find the binoculars during the free spins to trigger the Super Spins with the 5x multiplier and the coins can quickly mount up. Super Safari is quite similar to Owl Eyes when it comes to gameplay but much more volatile with bigger wins on offer.
Super Safari may be fun and exciting but is often overlooked by many slot players unfortunately. If you like the theme, I would recommend you try Playtech’s White King or Microgaming’s Jurassic Park which are graphically better and can give you big wins.
