Safari Hunt Slots
Safari Hunt Slots is a cute little Savannah game that is adorable to look at, a joy to play, and entirely avoids the overarching issue that you're out to kill all these poor animals for sport. It combines nicely drawn wild life with expressive cartooning and a really nice sense of color that borders on being too much. We thoroughly enjoyed the time we spent with it, mostly wishing that the UI had been toned down a bit, and they redid the graphics on your avatar. Those are both minor gripes, however, which makes this game easy to recommend for us.

The premise of Safari Hunt Slots is going out around Africa shooting at stuff and taking down endangered animals. They all look surprisingly cute and cuddly considering that's the task at hand, but we prefer that to them being ugly and violent. It's very light hearted despite what the underlying ideas are, which is probably true of most hunting themed things today. Still, it's a nice premise, and we mostly wish they'd focused more on the Savannah aspect of it than the hunting. The monkey almost looks like he's covering his ears because you're going to shoot.
Graphics in Safari Hunt Slots are great. Everything is crisp, clear, colorful, and compelling to look at, which makes your time spent playing all the easier because of how easy they are on the eyes. The animals all look friendly and expressive, and the colors are all spot on. Everything feels really nice and alive and varied, the only downside being that some of the backgrounds of the reels are a different color palette than the rest. Still, it looks great, and we can only fault the avatar character for looking a bit out of place in his face. Other than that, love the look, aside from an overbearing UI that is a bit too much.
Gameplay in Safari Hunt Slots is standard. At 5 reels and 20 pay lines, it does not break the mold there, chosing instead to keep things classy in ways we can respect.
Betting here ranges from a penny to $10, making this an accessible slot that anyone can jump into in hopes of winning a lot of money without worrying about necessarily breaking the bank in the process. Max bets cap out at $200, which tends to be how we rolled when we played it a bunch for our review.
The bonus round is called the Safari Hunt, which makes us feel bad but pads out our wallets.
+ Great graphics + Little used theme + Solid and classic play mechanics + Decent payouts
- Why shoot the monkey? - Gameplay is not very innovative - Can be a little addicting at times for obvious reasons
Who is this Game For?
This game is suitable for players of all types. In particular, it should appeal to:
* Players new to digital slots and looking for something relatively accessible * Moderate intensity players that have gotten their feet plenty wet in the online slots world and are looking for something a little more involved * Jaded slot vets * People that mostly want to win a bunch of money playing digital slot games * Players looking for slot nostalgia for the similarities and differences this slot has to other games * People more used to normal video games that are looking to get their feet wet in the world of online slots
Who is the Game NOT For?
Although we enjoy this slot, it is not for everybody. In particular, it may not be your cup of tea if this describes you in any fashion:
* Averse to winning money online * Looking for something truly innovative in the genre * You find the theme in any way offputting
Is it Buggy?
In the time we spent playing this game, we did not encounter any bugs, problems, or errors. The same cannot be said for all slots of this genre, so we commend the developers for a job well done on that. We also encountered no issues in processing winnings or payments, and everything ran very smooth just like you would expect across many varied devices in a variety of ecosystems and operating systems.
Safari Hunt Slots is a cuddly hunting game set in Africa that pays you to play it and manages to be a good time for all, even if you're like us and aren't a big fan of shooting monkeys. We can't fault much about it beyond that, and our convictions don't run very deep, so we can easily recommend this game to anyone that isn't vegan. We don't recommend many things to vegans, however, because they're always going on about how everything is bad and we got sick of hearing it.
