Microgaming Football Online Pokies

August 11, 2017


The new football season is about to begin and you are likely to see new football themed online pokies being launched. But in the meanwhile there are two old favourites from Microgaming. You can play these video pokies at online casinos like Royal Vegas, All Slots and Spin Palace.

Soccer Safari was released on the occasion of the FIFA World Cup in South Africa. Therefore it features animals representing personalities associated with the sport. Lion, rhino, hog, buffalo and jackal are the players. Leopard is the goalkeeper. Deer are the cheer leaders. Hyenas are the soccer fans. Elephant and giraffe are the commentators. Zebra is the referee. These symbols award the line payouts and exhibit awesome win animations. The trophy activates the Go For Goal bonus game on the second screen. You first select an animal player to take the penalty kick against the leopard in the goal. If the player scores a goal then you will be awarded a multiplier which will be applied to the total bet for the spin. If the leopard saves the goal then a consolation multiplier is awarded. The zebra symbol triggers the free spins feature. You will be initially awarded five free spins in which the zebra is a fixed expanded wild symbol on reels 1 and 5. After the free spins are completed, the middle three reels are held and reels 1 and 5 spin again. If these again have zebra symbols the free spins will be retriggered.

Shoot is based on the popular football trade cards. The symbols are legendary football players depicted on trade cards. They include Pele from Brazil, Best from Northern Ireland, Maradona from Argentina, Cryuff from Holland, Beckenbauer from Germany and Keegan from England. The Shoot logo is not only the wild symbol but it also awards the highest line payout. Five symbols in an active payline pay 7,500 times the line bet. The trade card symbol triggers the Trade ‘Em Bonus round. You have to select 4 out of 12 trade cards displayed on the screen and will be awarded prizes. Apart from bonus credits, the prizes may include entry to two second level bonus games. One awards from 10 to 35 free spins with all payouts doubled. The second bonus game is played on the second screen. You pick from the 12 magazines displayed and receive bonus credits. You keep picking till you draw a red card.
