In this handpicked selection of games, we head off to the continent of Africa. To explore some exciting games from some of the world's top developers. Including Rival and Microgaming. Grab your binoculars and get ready to see some incredible sights with this diverse range of awesome African slots machines.
We kick off the fun with a game from Betsoft the masters of 3D Slots. Safari Sam is a 5 reel, 30 payline game. This being a Betsoft game is a true video slot. With presentation and design that really is second to none. Complete with in-game animations. There's also a comical Sam the explorer who stands in his pith helmet to the right side of the reels.
In terms of features, you get random Wilds with multipliers and free spins. Triggered by getting a gorilla, zebra, and monkey in any combination on payline 1. You get to select one of the animals who then turns wild during free spins games, with an x2 multiplier.
Also on offer is a bonus round triggered by hitting 3 or more of the bonus symbols which depict Sam with binoculars. This round is a "pick item" style game in which you choose a location on a map to scout for animals. You can keep picking locations until you reveal a "Collect" icon.
After any win, you can gamble to double up your win. Press the "Double Up" button under the Spin button. Then you will see a new screen where you can pick a coin toss: head or tails. Guess correctly and your win is doubled.
Last but not least, if you can get lucky and fill an entire reel with matching symbols. Extra credits will be awarded and the reel symbols merge into one. Allowing two extra symbols to drop into place and the chance of more wins! Be aware that you must be betting on 30 paylines for this feature to be activated.
This is one of BetSoft's excellent mobile friendly games available to play on both iOS and Android devices.

From the relatively new kids on the block Yggdrasil Gaming, we have the impressive Jungle Books game. We assume this game is called Jungle Books and not Jungle Book due to copyright laws. But it's obvious right from the off that the Disney animation is the inspiration for this game.
Yes of course Jungle Book was set in India. But we felt Jungle Books was a game in its own right. Therefore, worthy of inclusion in our list.
Yggdrasil has obviously put a lot of love into this slot as it looks simply stunning. With beautiful 3D animated graphics that give the likes of Betsoft a run for their money.
This game introduces an innovative "Fusion Realms" design feature which means you get many different reel structures and features in a single game. What this means in practice is any one of 5 different characters appears to the left of the reels with their own individual feature combinations and reel sets.
That's not all though! These characters can also act as guests in someone else's realm, creating fun feature combinations. There are 45 of these possible feature combinations so watch out for:
Any wins trigger a respin with winning symbols and wild acting as sticky symbols while stacked wilds are added to the tallest reels
In the Boy's realm, you get synched reels feature. Reels that are synced always deliver the same result. All wilds that land on the reels creates 1 or 2 extra wilds in random positions.
This cool character turns all Super high symbols into wilds plus random win multipliers.
Bear serves up stacked symbols with 1 random symbol becoming stacked on the reels after each spin. Plus there's the chance to access a pick me bonus game via the honeycomb bonus symbols.
Snake brings you an x3 multiplier on any win that includes a Wild symbol plus he activates Wins both ways.
Jungle Books is one of "iSENSE 2.0" powered games. Which means the boffins have made this game nice and slick on the mobile devices. The slots look and sound certainly make this a pleasure to play on a big screen tablet such as the iPad Pro.

He's the undisputed king of the jungle. This Tarzan slot game from developer Microgaming does a fantastic job with the theme.
Tarzan, Jane, Archimedes, Cheetah the chimp and a leopard appear on the reels of this awesome looking 3D, 5 reels, 40 payline game. It's certainly one of Microgaming's best-looking games to date.
Land three of the scatter symbols and a Wheel of Fortune bonus feature will appear with four different prizes up for grabs. Tarzan himself spins the wheel and where the reels stops determines your prize: free spins, Pick-a-Potamus bonuses, cash multipliers and a jackpot.
Tarzan slot features Microgaming's Rolling Reels. This allows more symbols to appear on the reels after any win. Plus there are Growing Wilds which sees stacked wilds expand with every spin.
Developer Rival is the team behind Wild Safari slot. A 5 reel, 25 payline video slot game. This game's symbols depicting things you might associate with a wild African trek or safari. Including binoculars, a flashlight, bug spray and a journal plus wild animals.
The giraffe symbol is Wild and when you land them on reels 1 and 5 they will be Expanding Wilds. While the white rhinos are the game's Scatter symbol. Land 3 anywhere on the reels to trigger the free spins rounds during which all wins come with x3 multipliers. You'll bag 10 spins with three scatters, 20 free spins with four and 50 with five scatters.

Then have to take snapshots of certain wild animals before they disappear. Each successful photograph taken wins you extra credits. This is a good slot for penny slots players.
Microgaming's second entry in our list is Legends of Africa slot game. This is actually by 2 by 2 Gaming but is also available on the Microgaming platform.
Legends of Africa is a 30 payline slot.?? It has an unusual "diamond" layout with the reels. It perhaps won't be to everyone's taste but full marks to Microgaming for trying something different. You're probably best of playing a few demo games first to get the idea of how the layout works. It only takes a couple of spins to understand the 2-3-5-3-2 layout.
The game's graphics are average, at best, with semi-realistic depictions of African wildlife. Such as Lions, Zebras, and Cheetahs alongside playing card symbols and an African woman. As you spin the reels the authentic African sounds help set the scene.
A Wild Village symbol can appear on reels 2, 3 and 4 and substitutes for all symbols (except for Bonus Mask symbol). Land three Bonus Mask scatter symbols on reels 2, 3 and 4 to activate the Free Spins feature.
In the free spins feature you have to choose one of 3 Africa objects to reveal the free spins prize. You can win Ten free spins with a 3x multiplier value. Twelve free spins with symbol stack on reel 1 or Fifteen free spins with extra wild symbols. Best of all, Free spins can be re-activated during the bonus game.
You can wager bets from as little as $0.20 and with a Return to Player (RTP) of 95.51%, this is a good choice for penny slots players.
Developer Playtech is the team behind the official King Kong slot game. Based on the 2005 reboot which starred Jack Black. This game offers a nicely designed game that sees key members of the cast of the film on the 5 reels.
King Kong is a 20 payline, 5 reel slot that has two modes: Jungle Mode and Big City Mode. In each of the two modes, the symbols change visually (but the paytable remains the same).
In Jungle Mode, you get a Wild Jungle Respins feature and access to the Skull Island Bonus feature.
While the Big City Mode brings you a Wild Kong Respins feature and you can trigger a City Tower Bonus game.
Kong is the Wild symbol and in both modes, he is essential to triggering both the Wild Jungle Respins and Wild Kong Respins features.
Scatters, on the other hand, are needed to trigger the Skull Island Bonus and City Tower Bonus games.
In the City Tower bonus game feature. You'll see King Kong at the top of a skyscraper with planes flying around him. You just need to pick 1 of the planes on three separate occasions to reveal your prize.
