  • Click Lines to activate another payline. You can play a maximum of 15 paylines for each spin. You can also select paylines by clicking on a number 1-15 on the sides of the reels. Please note that choosing a number will also activate all paylines numerically below it.

Note: The Total Bet = Line Bet x Number of Paylines.

  • Use Auto Start if you wish to set a certain number of spins to be played automatically. Choose the number of Auto Spins by using the +/- buttons, then click Auto Start to begin. You can stop Auto Start Mode by clicking on Stop, which replaces the Auto Start button.

Note: Winning combinations will be clearly highlighted on the reels after a spin. All payouts are listed on the Paytable screen. Line Win = Payout x Line Bet. Scatter Win = Payout x Total Bet.

Note: A winning spin will activate the Gamble Feature. This will be explained in detail in a section below.

Info Pages:

The Safari Heat Info Pages are accessed by clicking the Info button on the bottom left of the screen. You can flip between the different pages by using the arrows on the bottom of each page. Use the Back button to exit and return to the main game. The Info Pages are described below:

Paytable – displays all possible payouts for Line Wins and Scatter Wins. Select the Show Paylines button from the bottom of the screen to load a graphic displayed the positions of all 15 paylines on the reels.

Free Games – describes the rules and special features of Free Games.

Gamble – describes the rules of the Gamble Feature.

Paylines:

Paylines are the directions that matching symbols must follow across the reels to pay as Line Wins.

Only active paylines (the paylines that you have placed bet on) can achieve Line Wins.

Please be aware of the difference between the Line Bet and the Total Bet. The Line Bet is the amount staked on each individual payline. The Total Bet is the amount staked on all active paylines added together, i.e. Line Bet x Number of Paylines.

About Payouts:

All possible payouts for the main game are listed on the Paytable. To calculate a Line Win, take the relevant figure and multiply by the Line Bet. For Scatter Wins, multiply by the Total Bet.

Only the highest winning combination is paid out on each individual payline. Multiple wins are added up and paid out as a total win.

A Line Win must begin on Reel 1, forming a chain of matching symbols on a payline.

Wild Symbol:

The Wild Symbol (Lion) can substitute for all other symbols (except Scatter) to help form the best possible winning combination on a payline. When one or more Wild Symbols substitute in a Line Win, the payout value will be doubled for that Line Win.

Wild Symbols can also form their own Line Wins with a separate payout.

Scatter Symbol:

The Scatter Symbol (Tree) does not need to fall on any payline to be active in the game. Two or more Scatter Symbols in any position awards a payout (x Total Bet). Three or more Scatter Symbols in any position on the reels will award Free Games.

Free Games:

Press Click to Start to begin Free Games. A message will appear on screen informing you that you have won 15 Free Games with a X3 Multiplier. The Free Games will play through automatically. Any wins achieved during the feature will be tripled.

Please note:

  • Free Games are played at the same Line Bet and number of active paylines as the triggering spin.
  • 15 more Free Games will be added to the total if three or more Scatter Symbols land in any position. The Multiplier is not affected.

When all Free Games have finished, a results screen will appear detailing the total win from Free Games and the triggering spin.

Gamble:

The Gamble Feature will be activated if you achieve a winning spin in the main game. Press Gamble to launch the Feature, which will open on a new screen. The objective of the Gamble Feature is to guess whether the next card revealed will be Black (Spades/Clubs) or Red (Hearts/Diamonds):

  • A correct guess will double your winnings.
  • An incorrect guess will forfeit your winnings and end the feature.

If successful, you can continue doubling up your winnings until the maximum double limit has been reached. This information is displayed on the Gamble Info Page.

The Gamble Feature will end if you press Collect (bank your winnings) or make an incorrect guess.

Please note:

  • The Gamble Feature is not active during Free Games or when you are playing in Auto Start Mode.

The theoretical RTP (Return to Player) for Safari Heat online slot is 96.16%.

How to play casino games

Here's a rundown of some of our most popular online casino games, including how to play them, and which offers the highest payouts.

Online slots

Online slots are played more than any other online casino games. They’re relatively simple to play, which makes them a great option for beginners. Slots can also offer large payouts, particularly for a jackpot win.

Playing slots online is very straightforward. The simplest form of online slots are three-reel slots, which are based on the traditional fruit machines you may have seen in arcades. In these slots, you’ll see three columns and three rows of symbols, with the middle row being the payline. You place your bet and spin the reel, and if you get a winning combination, you win the amount stated on the paytable.

There are many other kinds of slots online available at William Hill Canada, such as five-reel slots and video slots, but they essentially work in the same way. While the odds of winning at slots are slimmer than other online casino games, they do allow you to play with small stakes on a wide variety of slots. Slots with a jackpot offer a larger prize pool, so let’s have a look at those next.

Jackpot slots

The main difference between regular online slots and jackpot slots is that the former have a lower maximum payout. With jackpot slots, however, there are larger top prizes, sometimes offering up to a seven-digit win on just a single spin.

While 'jackpot' can refer to a fixed huge cash prize awarded during jackpot games, the term is also used to describe progressive slot games. For fixed jackpot slots the size of the jackpot is, well, a fixed amount. With a progressive slot, the size of the jackpot increases each time a player places a bet on the game. Progressive jackpot slots are a great way to add to your online gambling experience. These games can offer some of the most exciting experiences of all casino games, as they provide you with the chance to win the biggest payouts you'll find online.

Online roulette

Online roulette games consist of a wheel with spaces that are either red or black and are numbered from 1-36. This popular game is easy to learn and even easier to play. All you need to do is predict where the ball will land and place your bet. The roulette wheel then spins, and if it lands on where you placed your bet, you win.

You may think that only one variant of roulette exists in online casinos, as this is typically the case at real-world casinos. However, at William Hill Canada, you’ll find multiple variants available, including a European version with one zero, and an American version with two. You’ll also find a French version that offers slightly improved odds if you bet on an even-money proposition.

Online blackjack

To win at online blackjack, you need a higher number than the dealer without exceeding 21. You are dealt two cards and can ask for another card as many times as you want before you reach 21.

One of the great things about playing online blackjack is the number of variants available. At a real-world casino, you’re restricted to just one or two games, but you'll find more here at William Hill Canada, including Blackjack Scratch, Royale Blackjack, and Blackjack Super 21.

Live casino games online

This is where online casino technology really comes into its own. Some players enjoy the thrills provided by a real-life casino but also enjoy the convenience of playing online. Live casino offers the ultimate experience to these players. The only difference between playing live casino at home and playing at a land-based casino is that with the former, the action is live-streamed to your device.

You’ll be playing at real tables, with real cards, and with real croupiers dealing your cards or spinning the wheel. Depending on the game, you'll also be playing with other players from all over the globe. With the ability to enjoy live chat with both players and the dealer, live casino offers a fantastic opportunity to enjoy an immersive experience while playing your favourite casino games online.

Enjoy free online casino games with casino bonuses

An online casino bonus is a great way to boost your balance with extra funds and make playing your favourite online slots even more fun. Casino bonuses come in a number of different forms and are applicable to a variety of online casino games.

Almost all casinos bonuses are subject to their own terms and conditions, but what you get back is certainly worth it. If you look at our current bonuses, you’ll see our welcome offer, along with any other offers we may have available. There isn’t a one-size-fits-all bonus, so just make sure to keep your eye on our bonus page in order to enjoy our selection of games the fullest.
