Now that's what I call a Soccer Safari. Look out World Cup 2010!

White label internet betting software developer, Microgaming, is starting the month of June off with a new release of online casino games, including two new video slots and a new Gold Series table game. The most timely of the bunch debuts just prior to the start of the 2010 World Cup being held in South Africa. Called “Soccer Safari”, this 5-reel, 30-payline multi-feature video slot is like a cross between Microgaming’s popular safari-themed Mega Moolah and the game of soccer.

Offering 25,000 in the base game, over twice as much with free spins and 12,000 in the bonus round, “Soccer Safari” is a pretty loaded slot machine. There are plenty of scatters, wilds (including an expanding wild), free spins and a bonuses, including a Gamble Feature to obtain quadruple winnings.

The primary wild symbol is the Soccer Safari logo, while the Zebra serves as an expanding wild, 1x multiplier and free spins trigger when it comes up on reels 1 and 5. In free spins mode, the Zebra will expand the 1st and 5th reel, which serve as held wild symbols, while the reverse takes place for the sixth free spin (reels 2 thru 4 are held, 1 & 5 are re-spun).

To get into the bonus round at “Soccer Safari”, it’s all about winning the match. In other words, it’s the Trophy symbols that will give you the opportunity to win up to 50x winnings. Specifically, it takes three or more Trophy scatter symbols anywhere on the reels to trigger the “Go for Goal” bonus round. Once inside, choose a team, then choose a player to take the penalty kick, which if getting passed the keeper, will award a 10x-50x multiplier. Nobody goes home empty-handed in the bonus round – even a missed penalty kick will deliver a 5x multiplier.

That said, if you would like to increase your own chances of not going home empty handed, it is advisable to take advantage of one of the many bonus offers available at Microgaming online casinos (not open to U.S. residents).

Play Free Online Casino Games at the Best Online Casinos

Play Free Online Casino Games at the Best Online Casinos

Free this, free that, everybody wants something free! Why not, right? It’s free! Well, that’s not necessarily true. There’s a big, I mean HUGE, difference between free and “free with strings attached”. In other words, by the time you’ve dealt with all the “strings” what you first thought was free ends up costing YOU! For all of your experienced online gamblers reading this, you probably think you know where I’m going with this. And yes, while I am alluding to the “free” cash bonus offered at online casinos, I wanted to talk about the one truly free thing you can count on at the best online casinos – free casino games.

The fact that monthly search result stats show there are thousands of online surfers on the hunt for free online casino games is a testament to the popularity of the concept “gambling as entertainment”. But then again, it could also mean there are people out there looking to brush up on their betting strategy and game rules before hitting their favorite land-based casinos. Either way, free casino games on the internet are pretty easy to find these days.

Keep in mind, not all “free” casino games are actually free. There’s the software bundle that lets you play a particular casino game for free (usually a strategy-based card game), but then tries to extort money out of you by offering some secret strategy that you can learn firsthand on your new “free” casino game. Sure, you don’t have to buy into the strategy, but just like betting systems, the temptation is still there! Another not-so-free casino game is one that allows you to play a “downgraded” version of the game, although at the time you don’t know it’s downgraded. After playing a few hands, you are then offered a chance to use the “new and improved” version of the game – with a one-time or monthly fee, of course.

There may be some other software bundles floating around out there that offer no-strings-attached free casino games, but if you ask us here at OCS, we will tell you that your best option to play free online casino games is at the online casinos themselves. Makes sense, right? The thing is, unless you are a savvy online gambler (which you should be one step closer to becoming after reading this 🙂 ), simply testing out the free casino games with the intent of possibly opening a real money account at a later time, there’s many other players who are weary of even stepping a virtual toe inside the doors of an online casino. Most of these players don’t know a thing about online casinos, and consequently, are scared of getting ripped off or having their personal information stolen, or as I mentioned earlier, weary of the free online casino games not really turning out to be free after all. So, they stay away.

True, while it’s the hope of online casinos to eventually get you to open a real money account, there is no obligation for you to do so at the best online casinos out there. Now, if you want to cut right to the chase, all of the online casinos listed here at OCS offer no-strings-attached free online casino games. All you have to do is download the software or enter the Flash Casino, provide a valid name and email address, and you will have access to a full suite of free online casino games. Don’t worry about sharing your email. While you would likely get spammed sharing your email with unscrupulous online casino operators, like I said, if you stick with the online casinos listed here at OCS you have nothing to worry about.

When you login for the first time – and every time for that matter – you will be given the option to “Play for Fun” or “Play for Real Money”. Obviously, if you are looking for free online casino games, you will select the “Play for Fun” link. Once you are logged in, you will notice your account balance will have 1,000 credits. Don’t get too excited; Remember, it’s fake money. If your balance ever gets down to zero, simply click on the cashier link and you will have the option for adding more free credits – for as much and as many times as you like. If you ever decide that you are ready to play with the “big dogs”, simply choose click the “Play For Real” link and you will be directed to provide your deposit information through an encrypted server. The great thing about this setup is that the Free mode software platform is the exact same thing as the Real Money platform – the casino games play exactly the same, with the one difference being that money is or isn’t on the line.

So, if you are looking to play free online casino games, don’t let the real money online casinos scare you off. When they say “free casino games”, they mean it. Bonuses? That’s another matter altogether, and perfect fodder for another blog entry.
