Soccer Safari is a 5 reel online slot game that is themed around football, or more specifically, safari animals playing football. This tongue-in-cheek game is a cartoon-style design, set in a football stadium with an adrenaline-fuelled atmosphere created by the chants, cheers and upbeat music. The slot game, produced by Microgaming, offers 20 pay lines, free spins, a gamble feature and the chance to win a whopping 60,000 coins in the Go for Goal Bonus game.

This slot game has great theme-related reel symbols with clever animations if they form a winning line. The higher value ones are the football stars: the lion, rhino, cheetah and warthog. The lower value symbols are the buffalo receiving a yellow card, gazelle cheerleaders, the meerkat spectators and the elephant and giraffe commentators.

The golden trophy is the first of two scatter symbols. Land this anywhere on the reels, at least 3 times and you will begin the Go For Goal Bonus. The player chooses a team and an animal to take a penalty kick, and finally choosing a position to score. Any winning goals will reveal a multiplier.

The second scatter is the zebra referee; if this appears on the first or fifth reels then 5 wild free spins will be triggered. During this bonus, the first and fifth reels expand and become wild, while the 3 middle reels spin 5 times to try and bring on a win. Free Spins can be retriggered.

In addition to the two bonus features, you can double or quadruple your winnings using the standard gamble feature that NextGen often use.

Finally, the Soccer Safari logo symbol is the Wild, and this substitutes for all symbols but the two scatters.

Verdict

I’m not a football fan but I found that this game is really fun to play. It is a non-serious football theme and has some great animations when wins occur, such as the cheering meerkats or rhino taking a header. I think the game has been designed really well and has a really feel-good theme to it, as well as offering great chances of a win via the two bonus features.
