Time for some surfing but not looking around the internet but braving the waves. As long as there’s no sharks anywhere near. This is a bright and cheerful game from slot designers Microgaming who have been riding the crest of a wave for a while now. This is a bit different from your surfing game as those doing the surfing are animals! It’s a strange little theme but one that really works here and will definitely put a big smile on your face.
The game is based on some gorgeous looking location. To the left and right of the reels we have surfboards and some waves at the top. This is one of the Microgaming releases that doesn’t have a specific amount of paylines. Instead, we have a five-reel game with three rows of symbols and 243 ways to win. Wins are awarded when you get three or more matching symbols on adjacent reels in a left to right direction. Playing the game will cost you between £0.
The symbols are strange ones to say the least. Can you imagine a giraffe on a surfboard? Well that’s what you get here and other animals trying their luck include a snake, tiger and lion. We could do with some more but instead we get the nine to Ace playing cards. That’s a little bit of a waste really and the game could have been even funnier if perhaps we had something like a zebra or a horse riding the waves.
The wild symbol is just a big red ‘Wild’. You won’t moan about its design if it stands in for other symbols and gets you a winning combination. The scatter symbol is the Surf Safari logo on a purple surfboard.
Before you start playing the game it’s important to know as much about it as you can. That’s where accessing the payable can be so useful. It’s packed with all the information you need to know about how the game works and what each win pays. It’ll also give you the information you need about how to trigger the bonus game and what it has to offer you in terms of wins. Also have some free games to see just how the bonus game in particular works and the 243 ways to win.
To trigger the Safari Surf Wax Bonus Game, you need to get three or more of the scatter symbols anywhere on view. This takes you to another screen where there are lots of tins of surf wax. It’s simply a case of picking some tins to win cash prizes. This can go on until the ‘Collect’ tin is revealed. If your luck is really in you can reveal the Big Win tin.
The colourful graphics and the slightly strange theme make for an interesting and entertaining game. There are some good wins to be had in the bonus game, shame there’s no free spins on offer though. The use of the nine to Ace playing card symbols is a bit too much I think.
