The call of the African safari is irresistible. To see a diverse range of animals coexisting in their vast natural habitat is a fascinating experience. The African safari is one of the most sought after holiday packages. Online casino software providers have done their best to replicate this experience on the reels in their slot games. Though there is bound to be a great deal of similarity in the symbols used, yet these games do possess their own uniqueness.

Safari Heat from the software provider Playtech is the simplest of the safari themed slot games. The symbols represent the usual safari animals like elephant, zebra and rhino. The lion is predictably the wild symbol. It doubles payouts and offers the largest jackpot payout of 10,000 coins. The lion is the only symbol that gets animated and it lets out a roar when in winning combinations. Safari Heat has a standard free spins bonus round that awards 15 free spins at tripled payouts. The free spins can be retriggered any number of times. The Playtech gamble game is also on offer. There is a background audio of tribal drum beat music that aids the safari environment. Safari Heat can be played at all Playtech online casinos like Omni Casino, Casino Tropez and Play United.

The Vegas Technology safari themed slot game is titled Safari. Vegas Technology has done away with the customary high value card symbols so that it can get more safari related symbols into the slot game. Apart from having a wider range of animals, the symbols include the jeep as the wild symbol, the warden as the scatter symbol and the binoculars as the bonus symbol. The symbols are crafted in a comic style and all symbols exhibit animations and this adds to the fun. The bonus game on the second screen is very interesting. Players are shown a safari setting and are asked to pick up to four locations one after another. Every time the location reveals an animal the player receives payouts. If the location reveals a paw print then the game is over. Safari can be played at all Vegas Technology online casinos like Go Casino, Millionaire Casino and English Harbour.

The Cryptologic safari themed slot game is Savannah Sunrise. As far as the thematic content of Savannah Sunrise is concerned, that is not much different from the safari themed slot games of others online casino software providers. However, it has certain unique games features. It is an all pays type slot game, which means that there are no paylines and like symbols can appear at any spot on the reels to result in a payout. The more interesting feature is that the player can decide how many of the five reels to spin. In the reels that are blocked only the centre symbol changes. Savannah Sunrise can be played at Cryptologic online casinos like InterCasino and VIP Casino.

The most popular safari themed slot game is Mega Moolah from Microgaming. The boldly crafted symbols of the African animals do full justice to the safari theme. However, the reason for the popularity of Mega Moolah lies in its four tier progressive jackpot. The largest of the jackpots resets at $1 million and has paid upwards of $6 million in a single hit. The bonus game that results in the jackpot is triggered randomly and once triggered it will result in one of the four jackpots being hit. Mega Moolah can be played at Microgaming online casinos like Platinum Play, River Belle and All Jackpots.
