Thousands upon thousands of people are ready for the FIFA World Cup soccer action to begin. In keeping with this theme, Microgaming has released Soccer Safari video slot. The safari-animal theme gives a whole new meaning to the term “big game,” especially with the global interest in soccer.
This is a five-reel video slot with 30 pay lines. Images used on the reels include some rather cute, lovable creatures that join in the soccer theme with pennants, soccer balls, megaphones and of course the word “GOAL!” The animals include meercats, lions, elephants and several others. Some are more menacing than others, so watch out!
Soccer Safari video slot game’s main screen shows the pay lines along each side of the five-reel screen. At the bottom left are the View Pays and coin balance areas. Next, the coin amount is shown with the standard “+” and “-“symbols for changing the amount. Across the bottom of the screen are Lines, Coins, Bet Max and Spin buttons. Amounts are displayed in smaller areas just above each button.
Veteran slots players will appreciate the many features of this new game, including bonuses, two different scatters, free spins and multipliers. Available bets range from the minimum one penny to a maximum of 120. In keeping with the safari theme one scatter symbol is a trophy that is the trigger for a bonus feature called Go for Goal. Players choose a team to support and have a kicker trying to score goals for additional prizes.
The Zebra (what else would the referee be?) may be best on the first reel or the fifth reel since this starts a multiplier and a free-spin feature. This path is complex but rewarding. The reels transfer to Wilds for the time the player is in this feature. There is another opportunity to win (after the fifth free spin).
No, the game developers didn’t forget the main theme. The Soccer Safari symbol is the Wild that substitutes for other images. This expands the number of winning combinations. Soccer Safari video slot also has a Gamble feature in which the player attempts to guess the color and suit of the next card.
Why not join the hunt, hook up with the much-anticipated World Cup soccer excitement and play Soccer Safari video slot at Microgaming casinos? It will certainly be a challenge for slot fanatics!
