Soccer Safari Online Slot
Among a number of 2010 World Cup-commemorating games, Soccer Safari, a 30-pay line, five reel video slot from Microgaming, presents the quarter-yearly tournament in a refreshing light. It doesn’t take itself too seriously—it’s a breath of fresh air.
It’s actually pretty creative in its presentation. The design of the online slot is set in a soccer stadium, certainly, but the characters and symbols on the reels are made up of animals. If you remember, the 2010 World Cup was held in Africa, so it made sense to include these cartoonish animals in the slots.
The symbols in the video slot are an all-star team from the wilds of the African safari. Jackals, wild hogs, rhinos, and buffaloes are the stars of the team. The zebra referee calls the game as he sees it, and hyenas play the part of the crowd while the antelopes make up the cheerleading team.
The special animals act as the Wild card and the Scatter symbol:
- The Wild symbol is the Referee giraffe. Five symbols on the pay line yields a big prize, while it can also complete combinations for a win.
- The Scatter trophy is a Scatter icon. Three Scatters or more will activate the Go for Goal bonus game.
Go for Goal is a mini-game which lets you play as your chosen character. Score a penalty, and you will win either a random multiplier or a minor multiplier. If you don’t, however, you’re not losing anything—just the chance to get a multiplier for your wins, minor or otherwise.
With a bonus round that gives you something and takes nothing, and a collection of other icons that pay big, Soccer Safari is a great casual video slot that will let you walk away a guaranteed winner.
