Safari Sam 2 is an online slot machine from Betsoft. And as the title suggests, a sequel to the old Safari Sam slot machine. Safari Sam is quite a nice slot machine for Betsoft standards. Thanks to multipliers in the bonus game, you can take up to 5,000 times your stake per spin.
That is not possible on the Safari Sam 2 slot machine. The variance is a lot lower. You can score up to 505 times your stake per spin. With the maximum bet, that is $ 50,500.00. The payout percentage has also been dropped: from above 97 percent to 96.3 percent.
In Safari Sam 2, you win mainly thanks to the many Wilds that can end up on your screen. In the basic game, this is done randomly, in the bonus game every spin. Previously, Betsoft slots such as It Came From Venus, Sugar Pop, The SlotFather, Gold Diggers, and The Glam Life already had a sequel.
In Safari Sam 2, you play with 50 active paylines. Each spin you play a minimum of $0.20 and a maximum of $100.00. You also win if you have a complete “Safari Stack” on your screen. That earns the prize for a 3-of-a-kind. Winning symbols disappear from your screen and are replaced by new symbols.
It gives you an extra chance of winning prizes. This mechanism has become popular thanks to the Gonzo’s Quest slot machine from NetEnt. In Safari Sam 2, the compass is a Wild symbol. During the “Call of the Wild” feature, up to four reels can become 'Wild'. This feature can appear on any spin.
Playing card payouts start from 0.25 times your stake for three jacks. The payouts add up to 1.5 times your stake for five aces.

In Safari Sam 2, Playing cards don't have much to do with safari. Or it must be the cards that you are playing with your travel companions in the safari bus. The other symbols have more to do with safari. The camping tent, for example. And that is good for a maximum of 2.5 times your stake per combination.
In Safari Sam 2, the safari jeep will give you a maximum of 3 times your bet, the zebra a maximum of 3.5 times your bet and the lion a maximum of 4 times your bet. Safari Sam's wife is good for 8 times your stake. Sam himself pays out up to 10 times your stake.
In Safari Sam 2, an acacia tree at sunset serves as a bonus symbol. You need at least three to trigger the free spins bonus. More bonus symbols means more free spins:
- 3 bonus symbols gives you 7 free spins.
- 4 bonus symbols gives you 12 free spins.
- 5 bonus symbols gives you 20 free spins.
In Safari Sam 2, The bonus changes a few things compared to the basic game. For example, the "Call of the Wild" is no longer random, but this feature appears every spin. Each spin therefore becomes at least one reel Wild. The maximum number of Wild Reels is again four pieces.
The Safari Stacks still pay out as a 3-of-a-kind. And they also still disappear from your screen if you win with them. Only they are replaced by Wild symbols in the bonus game. After a winning Safari Stack you will receive a Wild Reel as a gift.
In short: many more Wild symbols during the bonus and therefore also more prizes.
We are not fans of Betsoft slots. This has everything to do with some incidents from the past. Such as the The Glam Life jackpot, which fell, but was not paid out. Or the jackpots on a slot machine like Good Girl Bad Girl that could be technically blocked by dubious casinos.

Maltese certification is also pending. Still, because it has been there for years. And that is why we have very little faith in it. In terms of gameplay, Safari Sam 2 is quite nice. Getting a lot of Wilds on your screen is always fun. And graphically it also looks fine.
