The minimum bet if you are playing only a single payline is 1p (30p if you are playing all 30 paylines) and the maximum bet is £120.
Soccer Safari has loads of cartoon-style symbols of animals from the African continent in the soccer stadium. There is a tiger goalkeeper, a wart hog, meerkat fans, a lion, a rhino, hyenas in the wall formation, a zebra referee showing a wildebeest the yellow card, an elephant and giraffe commentary team and cheerleaders. The Soccer Safari logo is the wild symbol while the gold World Cup trophy is the scatter symbol. The wild symbol replaces all other symbols except the scatter symbol.
The game has 2 exciting features that help you score big and collect fantastic payouts. Landing the referee with the red card symbol on reels 1 and 5 triggers the free spins bonus round. You get 5 wild free spins where the reels 1 and 5 expand and become wild while the 3 reels between them spin 5 times. Once the free spins are complete the center reels are held while the first and fifth reels spin again. The free spins can be re-triggered on the final free spin.
Landing 3, 4 or 5 scatter symbols anywhere across the reels triggers the Go for Goal bonus. This is an exciting bonus round with loads of high quality animations, live commentary, and incredible action. On the fresh screen that appears you pick from one of 3 team - Blue, Green, or Red. Once you pick the team you need to pick one of 5 players. Each player comes with a multiplier that multiplies your final score from the bonus. The player you pick approaches the penalty spot and you then need to pick the spot he is going to kick at. You score points depending on whether he scores a goal or fails, and the point are increased based on the player multiplier.
