Crack out your sun hats because we’re off to the plains of Africa on a safari! Join Foxy in roaming the savannah and trying to bag some big game in this great new Megaways release by Blueprint Gaming.
Breathtaking graphics and the great feature we’ve come to expect from Blueprint Gaming’s Megaways slot make this one fun game. Increasing multipliers, cascading reels and more can lead to some serious win potential in this scorcher of a game.
There’s nothing safari-like about the low-paying symbols, the card ranks 9 to A, but at least they're easy to recognise. The most players can win from these is 1.75 x the stake for six of a kind of Aces.
The higher-paying symbols are much more to Foxy’s liking; an elephant, a cheetah, a water buffalo, and a lion. The King of the Beasts is, of course, the highest paying symbol at 50 x the bet. Full details of the value of the symbols can be found by clicking the menu button on the right of the reels. You can also read the rules of the game here.
There are no surprises in the grid either, me Foxy friends. It’s the standard Megawys set up of 6 reels holding between two and seven symbols each. There’s also the horizontal 1x4 reel across the top of the grid. The more symbols that land, the more ways to win there are, with a maximum of 117,649 possible.
To start your safari, first select your bet level from a range of 0.10 to 20.00. Landing two or more matching symbols on adjacent reels starting from the left while spinning the reels on Safari Gold Megaways awards a payout. The sunset Wild, which can only land on the horizontal reel helps form wins by substituting for paying symbols.
There’s also a Mystery Symbol that transforms into a randomly chosen regular symbol. If you have more than one on the reels, they’ll all turn into the same symbol to hopefully create a win.
Wins trigger cascades, with all the symbols involved popping off the reels and new ones falling into the empty positions. Every win will get a cascade, and every cascade increases the multiplier by 1 for the next one.
At least four of the big Diamond Scatters triggers the bonus round. They'll award 15 free spins, and the more that land, the more free spins the player get, up to 30 for 7 scatters.
Impatient foxes who don’t want to wait for Scatters to land can buy into the bonus round by paying 100 x the bet. This will get them a spin on a Wheel of Fortune that will decide how many Free Spins and what starting multiplier they’ll get for their cash.
The Megaways Wheel Bet, which is a lot cheaper at just 20x the stake, gives players the chance to win up ten free spins by spinning the wheel. But instead of starting multipliers, the wheel will also fix a guaranteed number of ways to win for the spins.
During any of these rounds, every cascade increases the multiplier by + 1, and it doesn't reset until the round ends. There's also no limit to how high the multiplier can go.
The increasing multipliers and cascading reels can all build up to some real win potential in this game, which is why Blueprint Gaming has capped the chance of a max win at 250,000 coins. But keep in mind this is a high volatility game, and most wins will be a fraction of this amount. So don't lose your furry heads stalking the big one, and always set an affordable maximum loss limit for every session on this or any other slot. And have fun, me furry friends.
