There is no shortage of animal or safari-themed slots around, but when Pragmatic Play drops a new game, we always take notice. With games featuring rhinos, lions, buffalos, and gorillas - Pragmatic has a history of creating top-quality safari slots. So, we were eager to play The Ultimate 5 slot game and see if it ranks as a classic of the genre. While we found the game doesn’t offer anything fresh visually, its features have loads of appeal.
Let’s be clear, while Pragmatic Play is not reinventing the wheel with The Ultimate 5 slot. This game does everything with a touch of class. Of course, we expect nothing less from Pragmatic, including the developer’s usual visual flair. In The Ultimate 5, we can see this through the big five African animals (elephant, lion, leopard, buffalo, and rhino) on the reels.
Behind is the African savannah in all its glory, beautifully lit and animated. Sometimes you may think you really are on safari seeking out these amazing creatures. Those big five animals provide wins between 4x and 20x your bet if you land five of a kind across the 5x3 reel configuration.
To open The Ultimate 5 free spins round, get 3, 4, or 5 Diamond scatter symbols anywhere on the grid, triggering an upfront prize of 5x, 25x, or 50x your bet. You’ll also get 8, 10, or 12 free spins to play on a symbol removal mechanic that works randomly during your free spins. You can remove low-value symbols using the feature and get wild upgrades to help form winning combos.
The reality is The Ultimate 5 slot does little to enhance or change the Safari slot genre. However, in the typical Pragmatic Play-style, this video slot is excellent either way. It provides a relatively simple design and gameplay and nails every aspect.
