One thing there is certainly no shortage of is slots games based around football – or indeed sports themed slots in general – but this is surely a good thing for fans of the game and of slots, because it forces the creators of them to come up with original, quality concepts in order to stand out.
This leads to the creation of games like Soccer Safari, which is probably the most eccentric football slot game on the market – but also one of the very best.
It has been around for three years, having been launched alongside the 2010 World Cup, and it features a motley group of animals – including cheetahs, buffalo, lions and meerkats – playing each other in an animal version of the World Cup.
The animals themselves are brought to life really well (and really amusingly), with the elephant commentator who looks like Gary Lineker likely to be especially funny for English fans.
However the football theme of Soccer Safari goes well beyond this, with the bonus game especially being brilliant for fans of the game – as it requires you to shoot at the goal, adding to your eventual payout with each goal you score, until you miss.
To get to this game you need to score a reel with at least three of the scatter symbols (the World Cup trophy) on them, while the free spins feature is activated by getting the zebra icon on the first and fifth reels.
This feature is another one which can boost your payout from playing Soccer Safari, and the chances of a decent online casino win are another reason why the game has proven so consistently popular since it was launched. Given that you can play the game using coins as small as $0.01, it represents an affordable way for all football fans to mix their love of the game and of betting for an evening.
