Published on: February 22, 2012 

Animals in the wild have a majesty that humans cannot match. That is why African Safari themed slot games are very popular at online casinos. All the leading software providers have at least one such game in their portfolio. This article picks four of the best African Safari slot games that not only do justice to the theme but also offer excellent gaming features.

Mega Moolah was launched by Microgaming in 2006. The name has nothing to do with the theme. The African Safari animals are crafted in bold symbols. They include monkey, giraffe, gazelle, elephant and lion. The lion is the wild symbol and the monkey is the scatter symbol. The introductory clip has the lion coming to the shaman monkey to have his fortune told and the monkey tells him that it is Mega Moolah. Mega Moolah refers to the four-tier progressive jackpot. A wheel of fortune type bonus game is randomly triggered. The wheel will ensure that at least one of the four jackpots will be hit. The largest jackpot is the Mega Moolah and pays a minimum of 1 million credits.

Wild Safari is a recent release from Rival Gaming. It is an i-slot, which means that it offers an interactive bonus round. Wild Safari has two sets of reels that keep changing after the bonus game is played out. The first set of reels focuses on the game warden and the equipment that he uses. The second set of reels displays the African Safari animals. There are 12 animals, all of which feature in the bonus game. The animations in both sets of reels are mind blowing. In the bonus game players choose a location from grasslands, savannah and watering hole. Four animals will appear there and players have to capture them in the virtual camera. Bonus credits are awarded depending on how successful the players are.

White Rhino is the Realtime Gaming African Safari themed online slot game. It has the animals, the warden and his stuff as symbols on the reels. The white rhino is the wild symbol and appears stacked on reels. Kilimanjaro and the warden are scatter symbols. Each of the special symbols awards a different free spins bonus round. The white rhino awards three free spins to start with but adds three additional free spins for each white rhino symbol that appears on the reels. In the Kilimanjaro free spins, the reels with the Kilimanjaro symbol are frozen and the other reels respin three times. The warden awards 10 free spins, with the white rhino tripling the payouts.

Savannah Sunrise is an African Safari themed slot game from the software provider Cryptologic. Apart from the animals there is a tree symbol. Predictably the lion is the wild symbol. The tree is the scatter symbol and in the animation all the different animals run past it. Savannah Sunrise is an all pays slot game with a twist. When all five reels are selected the player gets the usual 243 ways to win. But the player can reduce his stake by choosing fewer reels. For example, if the player selects two reels then the first two reels will display all three rows and the remaining three reels will display only the central row. This will give 9 ways to win.
