Yes, the 2010 World Cup of Football in South Africa may be well in our past, but you can still relive some of the glory of Africa’s first ever hosting of the showcase event in the sport by playing Soccer Safari. This quirky, 5-reel, 30 pay line game from Microgaming will put you in the heart of the wild footballing action with its unique theme that adroitly fuses the beautiful game and the animal kingdom.
Even with all of the unusual slots out there, Soccer Safari’s theme is still fairly unique. The symbols are each emblematic of both the most popular sport in the world and the animals one commonly finds on a safari in southern Africa: a section of cheering hyenas with ‘goal’ written on their stomachs, a leopard goalkeeper, a heading rhinoceros, cheering female antelope, and an angry kicking buffalo are just some of the kooky symbols in Soccer Safari. These icons are complemented by graphics, effects and music that rival the best slot available on the market.
It may sound a little odd at first, but playing a soccer safari game with animals is just like playing any other slot game! This game relies on smaller bet denominations and a greater quantity of coins per play and number of pay lines. The most that can be bet on a single go is $120 while the least is $.01.
The most any standard symbol can win you in this is game 2,000 credits. Line up five ‘soccer safari’ symbols on an active pay line to have this happen. The scatter bonus is activated when the zebra referee appears on the first and fifth reels. He expands on both reels to form stacked wilds and you awarded five free spins during this bonus!
There is also a slightly more unique ‘go for goal’ bonus, which you access when three or more world cup trophy symbols come up on the reels. Here you can win up to 60,000 credits in a fun game that has you taking penalty kicks against the leopard goalkeeper.
