Head Into The Jungle With Safari Sam 2

Betsoft originally launched Safari Sam amost a decade ago and has replaced it with a sequel, Safari Sam 2, but does it live up to the hype?

The original Safari Sam launched in online casinos a decade ago yet the players still flock to it. Well, they did until Betsoft released Safari Sam 2 and it stole the original’s crown. The colourful, cartoon safari adventure is available at Golden Crown Casino where a $10,000 bonus awaits new customers.

Safari Sam 2 Fundamentals

The Safari Sam 2 base game runs on a 5×3 layout like so many other pokies do today. There are 50 win lines on that layout, meaning you have plenty of ways to win during each spin. Betsoft states the game has medium volatility but it is closer to low variance if you ask us. Combine the low variance with a 96.3% RTP and you have the ingredients for a recreational player-friendly title.

Safari Sam 2 caters for players of all bankroll sizes. Bet as little as $0.20 and as much as $100 per spin. The maximum payout is low, as you expect from a low variance game. Hit the maximum payout an a 505x payment is yours. This equates to $101 at the lowest stakes and $50,500 at the highest.

Safari Sam 2 Symbols

The Safari Sam 2 symbols have a jungle theme which is not surprising given the game’s title. The graphics are colourful and cartoon-like with some fun animations helping to immerse you in the game.

At least three matching symbols trigger a win. Royals, jacks through aces, are the lowest-value symbols, paying up to 1.50x. Tents, Jeeps, Zebras, and Lions make up the medium-value symbols. They pay up to 4.00x.

The two gamekeepers ate the highest-paying symbols. The woman pays 1.00, 2.00, and 8.00 for matching three, four, or five. Safari Sam pays a slightly higher 1.25, 2.50, and 10.00.

Symbol Match 3 4 5
Compass symbol 1.25 2.50 10.00
Safari Sam 1.25 2.50 10.00
Female Safari 1.00 2.00 8.00
Lion 0.75 1.50 4.00
Zebra 0.60 1.25 3.50
Jeep 0.50 1.00 3.00
Tent 0.50 1.00 2.50
Aces 0.35 0.60 1.50
Kings 0.35 0.60 1.25
Queens 0.25 0.50 1.25

A Compass acts as the wild, substituting for everything except the game’s scatter. The wild is a paying symbol, too mirroring the top paying Safari Sam.

An acacia tree on a beautiful sunset is the game’s scatter. It triggers up to 20 free spins if you land five anywhere on the board.

What Are The Game’s Bonuses and Features?

Safari Sam comes with a base game feature and some exciting free spins. Wins of three stacked symbols collapse and new symbols replace them. This cascading ends when no more winning combinations land.

The game randomly awards the Call of the Wild feature where up to four reels are entirely covered in compass wilds! It does not take a genius to work out large wins are the aim of the game here.

Landing three, four, or five acacia tree scatters awards seven, 12, or 20 free spins. In addition to the free spins, the call of the wild feature runs alongside them! Our seven free spins yielded a 120.6x payout, which is not to be sniffed at. Furthermore, re-trigger the free spins an unlimited number of times.


It is easy to see why the original Safari Sam was popular and the sequel builds on solid foundations. We do not know why Betsfot reduced the RTP from 97.5% to 96.3%, increasing the house edge to 3.7%, but they did.

However, they kept the variance at low-to-medium and made it possible to have up to four reels of wilds. The call of the wild feature is unpredictable and genuinely exciting. Safari Sam 2 will not make you rich but it will enrich your online casino session. Give it a try today.
