The name should pretty much give away what it is all about, South Park being a very popular TV based animation series, which has been going on strong ever since it started airing, back in 1997. It’s 20 years old right now, with just as many seasons that aired, and people still love it. South Park is the first of two titles that NetEnt has designed based on this franchise, for which they have the official license. South Park slots will bring you a look at the town, with 5 reels placed in the middle of the screen, with 3 symbols for each column and with 25 lines active in total. By playing it, you’re going to have your chance to land a payout of $7,500, but there are also quite a few features to trigger. You get random mini features based on Cartman, Mr Hankey or Terrance and Phillip, plus bonus spins, bonus games and wild symbols.
South Park has the expected betting system, the one with fixed lines, with bet levels of up to 10 and coin values of $1 or lower. You can end up spending $10 at most for each line that is activated, so up to $200 total. Lower budgets are also accommodated, allowing you to spin the reels with just $0.20 if you want to.
The theme for Netent South Park slots is obviously based on the identically named animated sitcom, which has been airing since 1997. Its heroes are four boys, called Kenny, Cartman, Kyle and Stan, and they are present in this game as well, as its symbols. There are bonus features and free spins also, based on these four main characters. The action takes place in South Park, the name of a small town in Colorado. The design style follows the look of the TV series, so you’re basically going to have images that look like they are screenshots from it. It’s an identical look, at least if you look at the four main characters that are high paying symbols, or at the background image. The other symbols are not as fun, with a couple of cartoon style poker cards and a Wild Logo.
This is a part of the game that seems to have gotten a lot of love and attention from the developers. Some of the features are triggered at random, others will come to you the regular way, with the help of feature symbols. First, I would have to mention the Wild, which has a logo with that exact word to represent it on the reels. It’s a regular wild that can be used during paid spins and during certain types of bonus spins. It is used to replace other types of symbols, as long as they’re not used to trigger bonuses. The Bonus Logo symbols are going to be used here to trigger the various features of the slot, but they can’t do it by themselves. You always need two Bonus symbols on the 3rd and 4th reels at the same time, while on the 5th reel you have one of the four Bonus Character symbols. Depending on the Bonus Character that you get on reel 5, you will have a different feature from these symbols. One of them is called Kyle Bonus Spins. You get 10 free spins at this point. The Ike Wild symbol is available on the 5th reel, and if it shows up it also lands on one of the tiles displayed at the bottom. There, it will trigger one of the extra features for (multipliers at 2x or 10x, coin wins or additional free spins). The Kenny Bonus Game also comes from symbols appearing on the reels. You have a bonus game, where you have to guide Kenny and take him to safety through different areas. A Cartman Bonus Game will bring you four possible outcomes. You can have it end, you can get a reset, you can win a prize, or you can double your win. There is a cap on the amount that you can win, of 5000x the bet. The final full feature that you can get is Stan Bonus Spins. You have a sticky wild on reel 3, which stays there for two rounds. You can also get sticky wilds on other reels. In addition to the various features that can be triggered through the symbols that appear on the reels, there is also the possibility of getting a mini feature. Three mini features can start up at random, as you’re playing the game. They are built around Terrance and Phillip, Mr. Hankey and Cartman.
In the base game, you’re going to go after a top payout of 750x, coming through the Cartman symbol. It can deliver a jackpot of up to $7,500. We know that certain multipliers are possible during the Kyle Bonus Spins, up to 10x apparently, so you might be able to get even more. The slot has an RTP that is at 96.70% on average, a good number for any slot.
It’s obviously the kind of game that you’d expect the fans of the TV series to want to play, and there are a lot of them out there. The slot delivers plenty of features and the right kind of graphics, so it’s a winner in my book.
