50 Lions is one of the most popular slot machines from Holland Casino. The slot Hot Safari from game developer Pragmatic Play is very similar in appearance and play to 50 Lions.
With both slots everything revolves around the lion symbols – if you turn your entire screen full of lions, you can start to cheer very loudly. Hot Safari has something extra: the lions count as wild (joker).
How does Hot Safari work?
Hot Safari has 5 reels and 25 paylines. The minimum bet is € 0.25 per spin, the maximum bet is € 200 per spin.
The symbols exist – how surprising! – from savannah animals: elephant, rhino, zebra, antelope and meerkat.
A monkey counts as a scatter. If you spin three monkeys anywhere on the reels, the bonus round, consisting of 10 free spins, starts.
The lion counts as wild and also has a special feature. If you turn a lion in the middle of a roll, the lion folds out over the entire roll.
On the reels you will also find the symbols A, K, Q, J and 10, just like with the 50 Lions slot machine.
But Hot Safari has something that 50 Lions does not have: a sixth role. It contains numbers from 1x to 10x. Your total win of a spin is multiplied by this factor.
In addition to a number, the sixth role can also stop on "Super Wild". If that happens, you get an extra spin, with one lion guaranteed on every roll.
The following also applies: if the lion stops in the middle of the roll, it unfolds.
If you are really lucky, all five lions stop in the middle of the roll and you score a screen full of lions. Jackpot!
The 1000 spins from Mr. Casino
Mr. Casino played 1000 spins in succession on Hot Safari with a bet of € 0.25 per spin.
The slot is very entertaining, also thanks to the cheerful jungle soundtrack. But after the first 200 spins, Mister Casino is already almost € 17 lighter. Unfortunately. The Super Wild has only appeared once and it only yields € 1.53. Ai!
Fortunately, Mr. Casino soon scores two fatter Super Wilds: € 12.25 and € 7.08. See, that makes more sense. In total the Super Wild falls eight times, with an average yield of € 5.97.
The bonus round with 10 free spins comes along eleven times, with the highest win being € 12.74.
What is disappointing is the sixth role with the multipliers. Nice to see, but the times that you exceed x5 can be counted on one hand. In 1000 spins, Meneer Casino received an x10 multiplier exactly once, resulting in a final prize of € 1.50. Mwah.
Unfortunately, the result after 1000 spins is also somewhat disappointing: € 56.77 loss.
The result on Hot Safari
- The loss after 1000 spins at € 0.25: € 56.77
- 5 highest wins: € 12.74 / € 12.25 / € 9.30 / € 7.80 / € 7.78
- Number of times Super Wild: 8x (average € 5.97)
- Number of times free spins: 11x (average € 3.32)
- According to Pragmatic Play, the payout percentage (RTP) of Hot Safari is: 96.17%
If you like to play at Holland Casino on the 50 Lions slot machine, then Hot Safari will feel like an old, loyal acquaintance. Hot Safari is actually more exciting, because the lions also count as jokers. That's not the case with 50 Lions.
But beware: this slot is quite erratic. If you are lucky, your balance can rise quickly. But if you are unlucky, the slot machine will put a dent in your playing credit, Mr. Casino noticed.
