Soccer Safari is an online slot from Microgaming which takes two different genres – sport and animals – and joins them together in an entertaining game which is not unlike Playtech’s Wild Games. Football is the sport in question here and this slot serves up two distinct bonus games in a riot of colourful characters.
Soccer Safari takes place over five reels and thirty paylines and the background to those reels is a gigantic football stadium full of cheering and vuvuzela-playing fans (we imagine). The symbols are a range of animal characters and include commentators, supporters, cheerleaders and several serious looking footballers from various teams.
The gold World Cup trophy symbol is a scatter which activates one of the bonus features and the other is triggered by the zebra referee character. The wild symbol is the Soccer Safari logo.
Go For Goals Bonus
Landing three or more of the World Cup scatter symbols anywhere on the reels will trigger the groovy little mini-game; you’ll initially be asked to pick one of three teams as you can see in the video below and then you must pick one of five players. The player will be worth a multiplier which will be applied to your winnings.
In the next screen you will get the chance to take a penalty by choosing which part of the goals to aim for – score and you’ll win a random coin amount which will be multiplied by the player value. Even if you miss you’ll win a random consolation prize.
Wild Free Spins
Get that zebra referee symbol on reels one and five and you’ll earn five free spins with those end reels completely wild for the duration. After five spins the centre reels are held and reels one and five are respun – on this spin it’s possible to re-trigger the feature.
Soccer Safari Online Slot Playing Tips
If you’re just playing for the features then you can play as few paylines as you want as both games are triggered by the scatter symbols. You’ll win more money with more paylines though.
This is a really bright and entertaining slot with some engaging sound effects and amusing characters. The Go For Goals bonus shows some refreshing creativity and this is a slot well worth recommending.
