Spain may have qualified for the 2014 World Cup and earned the right to defend the trophy they won so brilliantly four years ago, but they have not appeared the unstoppable force that blew everyone away back in 2010. There were some difficulties in their qualification campaign, and they went down 3-0 to World Cup host country Brazil in the final of the Confederations Cup. Even their friendly games have not been plain sailing – as anyone who witnessed the narrow 2-1 win over 119th ranked Equatorial Guinea can attest – so would gambling on them to retain it be foolish?
The odds of 7/1 on them from the bookmakers do seem a little generous, given some of their performances, but we should forget their past record or quality. Furthermore they aren’t the favourites – as both Brazil (3/1) and Argentina (5/1) are ahead of them in this respect. The two South American sides have both been in stronger form recently, and this (along with Brazil being at home) is something that you should think about when betting, but really no one can say for certain which side will emerge triumphant, which is exactly why some people prefer to play different football themed online casino slots instead.
The one that the majority of them seem to opt to spin is Soccer Safari at one of the online casino Australia casinos. This proves especially popular during a summer of World Cup fever, with its footballing angle that this five reel slot adopts. There is an unusual spin on this theme though, because it is a World Cup for animals, not humans. It is easy to get so distracted by the hilarious graphics of leaping leopards in goal and rampaging rhinos on the flanks that you forget about the $8000 jackpot. The presence of scatter and wild icons to help you win a payout should remind you though, making Soccer Safari the best way to win with your World Cup bet.
