The continent of Africa serves as theme for many an online slot game, but what games are popular with South African casino players? The following is a list of great slots games which are among the most popular in South Africa-based casino outlets online. Give these games a few spins…
Even beyond international rugby tournaments, by far the largest sporting event ever hosted by the nation of South Africa was the 2010 FIFA World Cup. And after all these years, the slots game based on the event is still going strong at online casinos. Soccer Safari stars a herd of anthropomorphized animals engaged in the Beautiful Game, slots style. The top jackpot in this one is 60,000 coins, and a bonus multiplier of 100x awaits on the reels as well. In the “Go for Goal” video bonus round, choose an animal player to take the penalty kick and land a payout of 100x total wager!
Slightly more generic of theme than Soccer Safari, the Football Champions Cup slot game by NetEnt includes a jackpot payout of a whopping 210,350 coins and features tons of special features. The video bonus penalty round has the players first kicking a penalty shot, then acting as goalie to attempt to save another – all for coinage, of course. The free spins round enters the player into a tournament-type format, with free spins increasing with each win until your team reaches the final for cash prizes; two additional wilds feature in the free spins round as well. Finally, we can’t forget the “overlay wilds” which sometimes appear on regualr symbols to turn them wild – lots of potential for winnings on this one.
And until the Invictus slot machine is released (no plans are in evidence, but wouldn’t that make a brilliant game?), South Africa’s rugby fans can make do with Odd-Shaped Balls slot game, a hilarious and lucrative slot that captures the fun of the international sport. The top payout in the base game comes when lining up five kickoff icons, a hit good for 2000x the payline bet. The symbol of the titillating streaking fan is a scatter worth up to 10x the total wager plus 25 free spins.
Of course, the lion is king – and just as predictable, the King of Africa slot attempts to riff on Disney’s increasingly ancient movie “The Lion King.” (Luckily, you can win money on King of Africa…) Co-starring in the 20-payline King of Africa slots game are zebras, leopards, elephants and the occasional human. The free spins bonus feature, as triggered by scatter symbols, is an intriguing combination of “pick ‘em” round and free games plus added expanding wilds. But the real notable bit in the King of Africa slot comes in the “Hot Hot Penny Respins”: When the player lands “just” two scatters, the reels containing them will lock on the board during two free respins. Nice.
Here’s another slot featuring the “King of the Jungle” alongside co-stars like wildebeests and giraffes. A bit more basic than King of Africa, the African Simba slot game is a “243 Ways” game, i.e. any three matching symbols in the first three reels equal a win. Landing three or more scatters (the sunset symbol) is worth 12 free spins with a 3x bonus multiplier.
Among online casinos accepting South African players, a couple funny animal slots are typically listed among the tops in popularity: Heart of the Jungle slot, 50 Lions slots and Raging Rhino slot machine.
