Safari Heat Slot Machine
Giving players the opportunity to trek across the African savannah – virtually at least – Safari Heat is a five reel and three row slot game that lets you enjoy the wonders of a safari from the comfort of your own home.
Packed full of extra features such as scatter symbols, wilds and the ability to trigger no fewer than 15 free games, Safari Heat really does deliver almost as much excitement as a trip to spot the big five in the Serengeti.

Safari Heat Slot Review
|Our Rating:||3.8 / 5|
- Fifteen paylines, valuable scatters and the plethora of available free games mean that there are loads of ways to win big with Safari Heat.
- Players are able to alter the number of active paylines, number of coins bet per line and the value of those coins, to give them ultimate control over their stakes.
- Safari Heat is simple and straightforward to learn and to play, but has enough features to keep it interesting.
- The slot’s graphics are fairly simplistic and not as engaging as those found with some other games.
- The Safari Heat music will undoubtedly eventually start to get on your nerves, but can fortunately be turned off.
- Not counting the availability of free games, there is no real bonus game.
Themed around a virtual safari through Africa, it should come as no surprise that Safari Heat’s reels are populated with symbols depicting many of the continent’s most famous animals. The slot’s top payline jackpot, in fact, is achieved by lining up five of the lion wild symbols along one of the active paylines.
That particular five symbol combination pays out at a generous and potentially life changing rate of 10,000 times the player’s wager per line. Given that a player is able to set that wager per line at a maximum of £5, that means that the top payline jackpot can be worth a lofty £50,000.
Scatter symbols within the game, too, can trigger up to 15 free games with multipliers of up to three times applied to them, to offer extra ways to win. More on that below, however.
In order to jazz up the gameplay and keep players interested, Safari Heat is a slot that does include a number of notable features beyond its main five reel game. The most interesting and important of those are explained below.
Scatters & Free Games
Safari Heat’s symbols include a desert oasis scatter symbol which if it appears anywhere on the reels can trigger up to a total of fifteen free games. Those free games can also include a three times multiplier to boost the player’s chances of winning further still.
After a win is achieved through the Safari Heat reels, players are given the chance to gamble those winnings through the slot’s gamble feature. If they choose to do so, they need only guess whether a card is going to be red or black, and if they’re correct their winnings will be doubled. If they guess incorrectly, however, the winnings will be lost so some players will likely opt to avoid that feature.
Aimed at giving players a taste of the Africa savannah, the most valuable and interesting symbols on the slot’s reels are those which show off images of the continent’s most famous animals. Animals that are featured include lions, elephants, rhinos and flamingos.
As we’ve mentioned before, the lion is the animal featured on Safari Heat’s wild symbols and it is those which are most valuable. Behind those, meanwhile, a five symbol combination of rhino or elephant symbols pay out at a rate of 750 times the payline wager and a five flamingo symbol combination returns 500 times the payline stake.
As well as providing interesting and potentially really beneficial gameplay, Safari Heat also offers players an excellent level of control over how much they stake per spin. Players can, after all, alter the number of active paylines, the number of coins bet per payline and the value of each of those coins.
Any number from one to 15 can be chosen as the number of active paylines, whilst there is the opportunity to bet between one and five coins on each that is activated. Those coins, meanwhile, can be set at a wide range of different values between the minimum of 1p and the maximum of £5. That means that the minimum bet per spin is just 1p and the maximum is a much higher £375.
What We Think
Safari Heat is a fairly simple and straightforward five reel slot that offers players the chance to win impressively large sums and which boasts interesting and fun gameplay. That gameplay is boosted by the inclusion of scatters that can trigger valuable free games but does lack a true bonus game or similar additional feature.
In terms of potential returns, however, there is very little grounds for criticism. Safari Heat’s top payline jackpot of £50,000 is really generous and other less valuable combinations still pay out at great levels. If you’re looking for an easy to understand, fun and high paying slot, therefore, this one makes for a great choice.
