Safari King UK Online Slot
From Stampede to Hot Safari to Great Rhino, there are plenty of online slot games which have turned to the wildlife and scenery of Africa for inspiration. Pragmatic Play, who released Safari King in January 2019, have used the theme of animals and nature repeatedly, and to great effect. This is another one of their beautifully rendered online slots and is a worthy addition to the genre.

We’re on the African plains for this slot, with the sun-beat grasslands of the prairies stretching away into the distance, and a large set of 5x4 reels framed by wood occupying most of the room. Each of the animals you’ll see in this slot has been drawn with plenty of care and attention. They’re not photo-realistic, but nor are they too cartoonish. The mood of the slot is helped along by an authentic-sounding collection of tribal drums and animal noises. It’s not exactly ‘Africa’ by Toto, but then what is? And no, we’re not going to apologize for putting that song in your head.
Pragmatic Play takes a fairly traditional approach when they put their online slots together; they're always very pretty, but also very easy to pick up and play without having to read through instructions, or get to grips with any unusual features. What you see is what you get here, with the spirit of simplicity running through to the symbols on the reels. The least valuable of them are playing cards going from 9 up to A, with the remaining (and more valuable) symbols being an elephant, a cheetah, a rhino, a zebra, and another wild creature which might be an elk. Don't quote us on that - we at Money Reels are UK online slots experts, but we're not zoologists!
No safari would be complete without seeing a lion, and so we have one here serving as the slot's wild. He can show up on any reel apart from the very first one, and he can replace all other symbols save for the slot's bonus symbol, which looks a lot like the sort of crystal you'd win for completing a challenge on ‘The Crystal Maze.'
Wherever you find a bonus symbol, you also expect to find a bonus feature, and there is one to be had in Safari King.
Safari King Developer - Pragmatic Play
Pragmatic Play hit the ground running in 2007, barely wasting a second in all the years since. They started out in Malta, but they had their eye on releasing UK online slots from day one and quickly acquired a license to operate here. They've been almost unbelievably prolific in terms of the number of slots they've released to date; they're approaching 150. There are developers who've been open twice as long as Pragmatic Play and released less than half as many. You can rely on the developer to publish at least one and sometimes two brand new online slot games every month of the year.
You can usually spot a Pragmatic Play slot from its graphics; they have an easy-to-identify visual style of both drawing and animation which is a credit to their design team; every slot has a 3D style to its design and a bold color palette. It wouldn't be fair to them to say that they only create animal-themed slots, but it does appear to be the genre they're most comfortable working within. Aside from Safari King, we can also thank Pragmatic Play for the award-winning Wolf Gold, its sister game Mustang Gold, and the hugely popular Great Rhino online slot. Vegas Magic and Leprechaun Song UK slot are two of the better examples of what they can do when they work outside their usual themes. Not every Pragmatic Play slot is a 10/10, but it's very rare that they release anything we'd give less than a 7, which makes them the reliable workhorses of the industry.
Safari King Slot Bonus Features
You'll have noticed that we said ‘one' when we referred to the bonus features, and indeed one is all we get. That's not always a bad thing though - we do love bonus features, but we're also aware that not everybody enjoys having too many of them. We know plenty of Money Reels players who like things to be nice and simple, and don't want to be distracted by complicated side games or too many choices which interfere with the simple pleasure of spinning the reels and seeing what comes up. For the majority of online slots, one bonus feature is all you need so long as it's well-executed. We're happy to say that Pragmatic Play meets the mark here.
The bonus feature on offer within Safari King is Free Spins. To get it started, you’ll need all three of the bonus symbols to show up for you at once - they can only land on reels one, three and five. In return for achieving that, you’ll be given eight free spins. That may seem a little low, but hear us out. Every time you land a bonus symbol during your free spins, you’ll be awarded one extra free spin. Three at once don’t land all that often, but getting one bonus symbol will happen regularly both in the base game and during your free spins. You should be able to keep this feature running for quite some time.
The longer the round goes, the better it is for you. After every spin, an additional wild symbol will be added to the second, third, fourth and fifth reels. If you can keep the spins coming, you can find yourself landing multiple wilds on every single spin, and your winnings will reflect that fact!
Safari King isn't the flashiest, most feature-heavy or even the most memorable online slot you'll play at Money Reels. It's not particularly original, and it isn't the best of Pragmatic Play's collection of slots. It doesn't have to be, though - solid and functional slot games are just as important to have in your locker as anything else. We know that fans of animals and nature-themed slot games will love Safari King, and that's why it's here. The free spins feature can be generous if things go in your favor, too.
