Safari Fury, a rare species in the gaming jungle

Released by La Française des Jeux on December 14th, Safari Fury is a new e-instant that exemplifies how game design can be harnessed to create differentiating lottery experiences online and attract new audiences. Part of the Web Exclusive category of the Illiko® range, Safari Fury has been specifically crafted to take players on a real-life adventure with a €10,000 prize at stake. Let’s get out our binoculars and take a closer look at what makes this game a rare breed.

A journey through a beautiful but hostile savannah

Safari Fury game is a symbol matching game available for 1€ that contains several extra features to add to the suspense. At the start of the game, players can choose to play manually or to play in ‘auto mode’ to uncover the symbols on their grid. If they find 3 similar symbols in a row or column, they win. But the discovery process is not a walk in the park. It is an exciting safari through a jungle home to wild animals that players must tame to win.

Players can align valuable symbols such as crocodiles, which add €1,000 to their lucky pot, or spot “+1” and “+2” symbols from which they get additional rounds to play the game. If they find the male and female symbols of the same animal next to each other on the grid, they also win a special prize.

But they can also encounter other symbols that disrupt the game such as tropical storms that reshuffle the grid or the “fury” symbol which tears up the grid and make many symbols disappear, only to be replaced by one.

As a twist to the main game, players can discover a “bonus” symbol on their grid which make them enter an extra game once they’re finished playing. Becoming the roaring lions of the savannah, they have to defend themselves against enemies. Each time they defeat another animal, they win the associated prize or a prize multiplier that applies only to the winnings from the bonus game. They are granted a total of 3 battles and the bonus game ends when they run out of lives.

Players can accumulate their winnings over the course of the game which create infinite winning scenarios and entice them to come back for more.

A full immersion into a vibrant savannah

In addition to its rich gameplay full of twist and turns, Safari Fury also offers players a gateway to a graphically refined grassland populated by wild animals such as lions, rhinoceroses, and gazelles. A host of qualitative sound effects also plunges players into a world where nature reigns supreme. Optimized for mobile to be played on-the-go, this game completely transports players to a land of dry bushes through which they must creep to spot rare animals and win the grand prize.

Safari Fury

In short, with its rich gameplay and immersive universe, Safari Fury is a great example of how to leverage the possibilities of the web to design lottery games that stand out in a gaming market too often populated by classic games and replicas.
