Soccer Safari Game Information
The Soccer Safari slot machine was released by Microgaming back in the summer of 2010 to celebrate the World Cup. It is one of several football-themed online slots available at Microgaming casinos, however it still remains one of the most played thanks to it’s unique style. It has a very fun feel with animals used as symbols on the reels, an exciting penalty shootout bonus game, and high-tempo background music which really gets you in the mood to land some big wins!
Soccer Safari Theme and Gameplay
The Soccer Safari slot features a total of 5 reels and 30 paylines. The coin denominations you can select from are 0.01, 0.02, 0.05, 0.10, or 0.20, and you can play for up to 20 coins meaning there is a maximum bet of €120 available on each spin.
The symbols used in the Soccer Safari slot machine resemble the characters from the popular animated movie ‘Madagascar’.

As well as these basic animal symbols you will find the Soccer Safari logo which is the games Wild symbol, and the World Cup trophy which along with the Zebra referee act as the games two Scatter symbols.
Soccer Safari Bonus Features
Microgaming have placed great emphasis on including exciting bonus features in Soccer Safari and all of them give players the opportunity to land big wins. There are actually three bonus features available on Soccer Safari which include a two-option gamble feature, Wild free spins, and an exciting penalty shootout bonus game.

Gamble Feature: The gamble feature incorporated into Soccer Safari is excellent and gives players the opportunity to really boost your winnings. It can be activated after any standard game win and you actually have two options to choose from. You can choose to either double up your winnings by selecting if a playing card will be red or black, or you can quadruple your winnings by selecting which suit it will be (Heart, Diamond, Club or Spade).
Free Spins: The free spins mode is triggered by landing the Zebra Referee symbol on both reel 1 and 5 in the same spin. Reel 1 and 5 will then become Wild and are held in place while reels 2, 3 and 4 are spun for 5 spins. Once these spins are finished reels 2, 3 and 4 are held instead and reels 1 and 5 will spin in an attempt to re-trigger the free spins mode again – these can really add up!
Go For Goal Bonus: This is the main bonus feature of the Soccer Safari slot machine and not only is it the most fun, it is also the most rewarding with a maximum of 60,000 coins up for grabs. To activate the Go For Goal Bonus game you must land 3 or more Trophy Scatter symbols anywhere on the reels and you will then be taken to a new screen. Here you must select the team you want to be on, with three to choose from, and then you must select one of five animated animal characters to play as which will have a multiplier bonus attached. You are then taken to the penalty spot where you must select which of four places you would like to shoot to beat the keeper – either bottom left, top left, top right, or bottom right. Your character will then run up and shoot in the corner you selected, and should he score you will be awarded coins and your team mates will throw you in the air in celebration!
