Free Play Safari King Slots - No Spam - No Pop-up Ads
We’re not sure why Pragmatic Play loves animals so much. It feel like every other slot they make is either focused on them, or at least includes them! That means Safari King is entering a crowded field, hoping to leave an impact on players. If that’s the end goal, we’re afraid that this game has failed to accomplish it! While it’s undoubtedly fun for an evening or two of casual fun, it won’t be appearing on any favourite lists anytime soon.
Honestly, beyond the animal symbols, there’s nothing to look forward to visually. There is a -hint- of a background image. You can barely make out a tree in the distance, birds flying in the distance, and the gentle sway of the grass. But the reel placement blocks all of those elements from being seen proper. We wouldn’t mind if the icon designs were fantastic. But the only thing you can see on the playing field are the above average animals and utterly abysmal playing card royals.
You play this release on a 5x4 board with 50 paylines, which pay left to right only. There’s only one available special feature: a free spin round, with extra Wilds being added with each spin. Oh, and the free spins can be indefinitely retriggered. Now, we’d be willing to accept just one bonus if it was something cool and amazing. But a free spins special feature with lots of Wilds does not fit into that category. Pragmatic Play can do a lot better than this!
At the very least, the developers were sensible enough to keep one of their best assets intact: the user interface. The layout looks cool while ensuring everything important is easily accessible. Our favourite aspect of this is definitely setting your total bet. You can choose to just spam click the plus and minus keys until you reach the wager you want. Or, you can go the methodical route, and adjust coins per payline and coin value until you reach the values you want.
Safari King has a high volatility, which is a horrible mismatch with its paytable. Players will accept grindy gameplay and long spells with no wins if it means stellar prizes later down the line. But when this slot only offers a 1000x jackpot, we can’t imagine many gamblers will feel it’s worth their time. At the very least, Pragmatic Play got the return right! The RTP for this game is 96.49%, which is above the current industry average of 96%.

Land three diamond Bonus symbols on the first, third and fifth reel to win eight free spins. During extra turns, an extra Wild will be added to the second, third, fourth and fifth reel with each spin. It should be noted the Wilds are added to the reel set, and not the reels themselves. That means you’re more likely to draw a Wild, but there’s no guarantee a Wild will appear. Every additional Bonus icon grants an extra free spins, with no upper limit on how much you can extend the special feature.
We can’t remember the last time we were so thoroughly disappointed by a Pragmatic Play release. There’s usually something about their slots that we like. But in Safari King, every aspect seems to be mismanaged somehow. The background image is blocked by the reels. The top prize is too low for the volatility this game offers. Not to mention the fact it has only one special feature, which simply is not strong enough to carry this release on its own. As a result, we recommend skipping this slot. It’s just not worth your time or money.
