Given the popularity of both soccer and online betting across much of Europe, the increasing number of soccer themed slots games that are available should not really surprise anyone.
The fact is there are probably more slots games based around soccer than any other sport, but this means that it games really do have to offer something different to stand out. When it comes to Soccer Safari, the word ‘generic’ is never going to be used to describe it, with the game revolving around animals playing each other in a World Cup tournament in a jungle stadium.
The game was originally launched to mark the World Cup back in 2010, but its popularity has grown since then – and it is a game to appeal to both soccer fans across the world and a specifically English fan. On the one hand, the World Cup theme and amusing animal graphics will appeal to fans in any country, while neat touches like the resemblance that the elephant commentator bears to Gary Lineker will catch the eye of English supporters. The graphics used to render the animals are brilliant throughout, but alongside the elephant, the meerkats are likely to be a favourite for most players.
The wild symbol is the Soccer Safari logo, which can stand in for any other symbol to give you a winning reel – and the World Cup trophy icon is the scatter symbol. This activates the superb bonus game, where you have to take shots at the goal, adding to your payout for every goal you score. You can also increase your slots winnings with the free spins feature, which is activated when you get the zebra referee on the first and fifth reels, ensuring that Soccer Safari is one of the best games to play in terms of winnings – as well as being one of the best in terms of the actual soccer theme.
