The thought of a jungle safari gives birth to visions of adventure and extreme challenges and that is what this mobile pokie is all about. The Safari Sam pokies is based on the safari theme. It is a 5 reel, 30 payline game. This pokie offers up some fun features and symbols you would expect from BetSoft.

Safari Sam Pokies – The Features

Safari Sam has many fun symbols like plenty of Wild Symbols, the Scatter Tree Symbol, Bonus symbols like the Gorilla, Zebra and Monkey, Bonus symbol 2 which is the Binocular Sam and the Jackpot symbol which is the Safari Sam symbol. There is also a Double Up Feature and a Stacked Collapse Feature.

Although there is no one wild symbol in Safari Sam, various symbols will become wild symbols on any given spin and this is where multipliers come into play. These multipliers come with wild symbols and can be anywhere from x2 to x10 winnings.

The Double Up feature allows you to play a game of heads or tails. If you guess right your winnings are doubled. If you bet on all 30 paylines you ignite the Stacked Collapsing Wins feature which provides you with 5 extra paylines.

Safari Sam pokies – Gameplay

Unfortunately, the game lacks the usual ‘Quick Spin’ button. Once you’ve spun the reels you’ll have to wait for the reels to stop before you can place your next bet. This is the only hiccup I’ve experienced so far. Payouts are awarded from left to right.

How To Play Safari Sam pokies

The goal is to score winning combinations when you spin the five reels. The Scatter symbol can reward you anywhere from 90 to 300 coins depending on whether or not you get 3, 4 or 5 of them on a spin.

A Bonus symbol right down the middle will give you free spins and a Bonus symbol 2 of 3 or more on the 5 reels will provide you with a free bonus game. If you can spin up 3 to 5 Jackpot symbols you can win anywhere from 500 to 2500 coins.

Whenever you bring up 3 Binocular Sam symbols you trigger the Sam Safari Bonus game. A new screen will allow you to choose an area on the map where Sam is viewing the wild animals. If you can pick the right one with the word Collect you will collect a bonus. Whether you are winning free spins, multiplying your winnings, playing the heads or tails feature or finding Sam on the map, there are plenty of ways to win.

Stacked Collapsing Wins

When the same symbol in a column appears on an entire reel, you’ll get an additional free spin with a 3x symbol payout. The collapsed symbols will merge into a single symbol which drops 2 additional symbols in place. When this happens an additional cash prize is awarded. Just remember that this feature only shows up when you wagered on all 30 paylines and does not show up during the free spins mode.

During the stacked collapsing wins feature other animals cannot be triggered. The bonus round and free spins are included. When 3 binocular symbols appear the bonus round is triggered. You can win as many as 4,500 coins. You can get some multipliers that can multiply your bet up to 10 times. When three or more Safari Sams appear on an active payline, the Pick’em Bonus game is activated. It’s replete with stacked symbols and a gambling feature.


Safari Sam is one of the latest offerings from BetSoft and we must admit that:

  • The theme is appropriately presented
  • There are ample opportunities for a payout
  • There are nifty features and symbols
  • The pokie is enjoyable to play

This is a pokie game worth looking into if the safari theme is alluring to you.
