We call it football, but the American’s call it soccer in order to differentiate from their national sport. In fact soccer is the most popular team game in the world and it is played in 200 countries; it is estimated that there are 250 million football players in the world. Thus it comes as no surprise that some of the most popular sports themed slot machines and video slot games found at online and real casinos are based on soccer. One of these is worthy of special mention if only for its originality. The game is called Soccer Safari and is one of the top football themes slots.

Soccer Safari comes from the Microgaming stable and it is one of their large range of non-progressive slots and available on sites like luckynuggetcasino.com. It is a 30 payline 5 reel slot with a host of features including bonus features, free spins scatter symbols, wild symbols and multipliers. The top prize is £8,000 which is 40,000 coins and you can bet anything from just £0.10 up to £120 a spin. If you are chasing the top payout then you are advised to make the maximum bet.

The unique element of the game comes from the way in which it depicts players, officials and spectators. These are all based on the native animals of South Africa and are stylised comic renditions of beast of the jungle such as tigers, giraffes, elephants and hippos. You will either love them or hate them, but if you have a sense of humour then it will be the former.

In terms of game play the most entertaining feature is the bonus game which is called Go for Goal which is triggered by spinning at least three Trophy anywhere on the reels. You select a team and a player. Different players have different multiplier values, so you can assume that the lower the multiplier the greater the chances of scoring a goal. You then select which part of the goal to aim for and go for goal. If you score then you will a cash prize and you get another go.
