South Park Turns TV into Slots Fun
For more than 15 years, South Park has been the love-it-or-hate-it success of American TV. The crudely animated show, part biting satire and part gross-out humor, may have as many detractors as it has fans across the USA. Gaming developer Net Entertainment’s South Park slots title is designed to appeal to the stalwart fans, bringing the show’s most beloved characters to life in a surprisingly large number of bonus features.
Adjustable Betting Options
South Park’s 25 paylines are fixed, so players must play all 25 on each spin, but coin denominations range from 0.01 to 1.00, and players can bet between 1 and 10 coins per payline, so the total bet per spin ranges from 0.25 to 250. The online baccarat NZ game features five reels, each displaying three icons per spin, and the paylines cover varied winning patterns.
Meet the Whole South Park Gang
Apart from four Poker icons, J to A, South Park employs the show’s four heroes as the regular symbols: Stan, Kyle, Cartman and Kenny. All eight symbols win prizes for matches of three or better, ranging from 5 coins for three poker symbols, through 25 coins for three of a kind among any of the characters, and up to 750 coins for five Cartmans.
The regular wild icon is simply a block with the word wild on it, in keeping with the TV show’s no-frills animation, and as usual the wild can fill in for any icons except the bonus symbols to create more winning paylines. However, there are several other wilds, some triggered at random and some available only in the bonus games, as well as many different bonus icons, so lots of other characters from South Park crop up as well.
Familiar South Park Audio Accompaniment
There’s no mistaking the South Park theme tune that plays along under the action, and characters on winning paylines and in the frequent animations also use their catchphrases from the show. Kenny even gets killed in the game intro, so South Park video slots stays true to the spirit of America’s most controversial cartoon.
Four Different Types of Bonus Games
The bright yellow-and-red bonus icon must come up on Reels 3 and 4, along with a third bonus icon on Reel 5 that comes in four variations; one for each hero. So the exact combination of icons will determine whether the player activates the Cartman Bonus Game, the Kenny Bonus Game, the Kyle Bonus Spins or the Stan Bonus Spins. The Kyle Bonus Spins, for example, consists of 10 free spins, with multipliers and coin wins determined by the infamous Kick the Baby game with Kyle’s little brother Ike. The Kenny Bonus Game naturally involves trying to get Kenny through a dangerous set of obstacles without him getting killed, for more coins and multipliers. Stan Bonus Spins feature sticky wilds that remain on the reels for two spins, with the round continuing as long as there is a sticky wild in view.
Cartman Bonus Game Give Biggest Range
In the Cartman Bonus Game, players have to pick random bushes to reveal yet more South Park characters. Some will win coins, some will add multipliers, and some will retrigger the bonus game. Officer Barbrady, sadly, busts Cartman and ends the bonus round. South Park slots also have a Cartman Mini Feature, triggered at random, which delivers 3X3 blocks of Beefcake Wilds, for potentially huge wins. There are two other random wild features to enhance wins, which use the show’s grossest characters: Terrance and Phillip, and Mr Hankey.
