Feel the might of the king of the animals – the powerful lion in this Blueprint Gaming video slot. Safari Gold Megaways is another version of LeoVegas Megaways. The design has undergone a complete makeover here but the features are still the same. If you like the first one and LeoVegas casino, try this one!
In the slot, you will have the chance to trigger cascading consecutive wins. There are also free spins with an unlimited and progressive multiplier. You have available 2 Bonus Bet options with a higher return to player level just like in the first slot. We expect the game to be available at the end of September 2019. Read more about it in the review below.
Safari Gold Megaways has 6 reels which can hold up to 7 rows each and can lead up to 117,649 win ways during the spins. The minimal Megaways you can have in the game is 324. The number of win ways depends on the number of symbols landing on each reel per spin. On reels 1 and 6 you can have from 2 to 7 symbols, while on reels 2, 3, 4, and 5 from 2 to 6 symbols are possible. Your win chances increase thanks to the presence of an extra horizontal top reel. It is over reels 2, 3, 4, and 5 with 4 symbols on each spin.
You get a payout every time identical 2 or more symbols appear on adjacent positions from left to right. Winning symbols explode creating a reaction. Thus you can get many consecutive payouts from one spin. You can play on desktop and mobile devices with wagers from 0.20 to 10 credits per spin. The volatility is medium to high with an RTP of 96.50%. When entering one of the 2 bonus options you will be playing with an increased RTP of 97%. The max win you can take from the game is 50,000 times your stake or £250,000 – whichever of the two you score first.
Set in the African savannah, Safari Gold Megaways has the typical design for its theme. There is a fiery sunset created with the gradation of colours. On the reels, you will see African wild animals. These are the water buffalo, the elephant, the cheetah, and the powerful lion, of course. There is a bonus symbol of a white diamond.
The spin button includes the same LeoVegas casino’s mascot – the lion. Here are also the 9 to A playing cards. The Bonus Bet button includes the lion mascot on the left of the grid. The dominating colours are orange, yellow, and fiery. The soundtrack is the same used in another Blueprint Gaming’s slot – Savanna Stampede.
The symbols include the playing cards from 9 to A which have the lowest value – from 0.8 to 1.75 times your stake for 6 of a kind. The wild animals: cheetah, buffalo, lion, and elephant pay from 2 to 50 times your stake. These are their payouts for combinations made of 6 identical symbols on adjacent areas from left to right.
Form the symbols with special functions you have a wild, a scatter, and a mystery one. The wild is a sunset icon with Acacia trees on it which can play the role of any other regular symbol. The scatter is a white diamond on a light-blue background with a ‘BONUS’ written on it. The mystery symbol is a detailed golden icon.
Typical for Blueprint Gaming’s slots especially Megaways ones is the Mystery Feature. It is active here as well as in the first original game. The mystery symbol can appear during the base game and free spins. It reveals a random symbol except for the scatter. All mystery symbols landed per spin reveal the same symbol which gives you chances to score wins.
Land at least 4 scatters of the diamond bonus symbol in a single spin to win a round on the Bonus Wheel. On it there are two rings – the outer one displays the starting multiplier value you will get. The inner one shows the number of free spins. You will have one spin on the Bonus Wheel which will determine your game rules. According to the number of scatters that have triggered the feature, you receive the relevant values on the wheel. These are:
During the free spins, the scatters will appear only on the horizontal reel with 4 symbols on the top. Landing 3 or 4 more bonus symbols gives you 5 or 10 free rounds, respectively. The most profitable feature – the highlight in the games is the progressively increasing multiplier. It activates on a winning reaction and increases with x1 with it. The multiplier has no limits as to how high it can get. Also, the mystery symbols can land during the spins. You get consecutive wins from cascading reels.
As we mentioned, there is a Bonus Bet option giving you direct access to the free spins for a predefined price. It is on the left of the reels. The available options are two:
If you are ready to pay the price for the buy option you can take advantage of any of the 2 available ones. The second Bonus Buy gives you more chances but is more expensive as well.
Most of the features in Safari Gold Megaways are alike to those present in LeoVegas Megaways. The gameplay in the first and second version of the casino – inspired video slot is almost the same. Safari Gold Megaways offers a different thrill thanks to the altered design. Those who love the online casino and the first slot can try their luck here. The volatility is medium to high and there are plenty of ways to help you score bigger and oftener payouts.
