First things first, hands up if you don’t like South Park, the TV show? You, you at the back, it’s time to leave as NetEnt recently released a casino game version, South Park mobile, based entirely on the award-winning series. “Going down to South Park and gonna have myself a time” – these may be the opening lyrics to the show but what a time you will have and what a game it is.
As a huge fan of the TV series, this is currently my favourite game out there at the moment – I know Net Ent tend to deliver some great premium and branded games, including the great Aliens title, but South Park really does deliver on every element for me.
It’s fun, it’s entertaining, the graphics are fantastic, the game play is smooth and fluid, whilst all the time there are great opportunities to win big amounts of cash – up to 1,250,000 coins in fact. Considering the coin value is up to $0.50, that’s a really decent pay out waiting to happen. Whether I’ve just got lucky personally or not, the payouts do seem to be quid frequent – often getting through to the bonus games and triggering the ‘big win’ features.
Ultimately, South Park mobile is a 5-reel, 3-row and 25-line video slot that features plenty of free spins, wild symbols substituting for other symbols, sticky wilds, bonus games and 3 mini features.
As per most video slots these days, it’s really easy to choose how many lines you want to play and what level of coin value coin you want – making the game simple to play and letting you focus on the fun side of it and enjoying the features on offer.
Bonus games – there are four different games available featuring some of the best characters from the show – you get to hunt hippies with Cartman whilst he throws out the usual insults; keep Stan puking for sticky wilds and re-spins; you get to guide Kenny along a busy road without getting killed and you’ll receive coins and multiplier wins; whilst Kyle will get you 10 free bonus spins where he’ll also ‘Kick the baby’ – baby Ike to be precise – which will help you get extra spins and multiply winnings too. Every one of these bonuses is a refreshing change from the normal staid bonus games you get.
To trigger the bonus games all you have to do is get a bonus symbol on each of the last three reels and then you’re game will load up. There’s another way to win more though and that is with the 3 mini-features, where either Cartman, Terrence and Phillip or Hankey the Christmas Poo will appear and create sticky wilds on your screen which then help to create winning lines on your next spin.
And that’s the game – easy to play but totally engaging, with a cast of characters and a suite of sounds and quotes from the show that will be extremely familiar.
Overall, if you enjoyed the South Park TV show, then you’ll absolutely love this mobile casino game and if you don’t enjoy the TV show then I’d still put my money on you enjoying this game – it’s just too much fun. If you don’t, then you can always just trot out that infamous line from the show, courtesy of Cartman, “Screw you guys, I’m going home”.
