The moment the opening music launched this mobile slot, and our face broke into a smile, we knew we were hooked. Fart jokes and all. This is for fans and past fans of the TV series.
We were cynical when NetEnt announced that their bonus feature heavy slot South Park would go mobile. Bear in mind that this mobile slot has a total of 8 bonus features, all as graphical as the next, we expected the slot to become… less of a slot and more of a game. What do we mean by that? Simply that the fun of the spin would be overridden by feature after feature of bonus rounds and mini-games, interrupting the game play. This, we are happy to report, is not the case.
Yes you should certainly play using quickspin, especially if your internet connection is slow. But play it with sound if you can, because it’s half the fun. And it’s not just the special features, even the game wins have wonderful original sounds from the TV Show that give us a child like glee when we get wins (“Can I get a wh..wha..what!“, “Beefcake!!“, “I’m so Happy“, “Squeeze him between your festive buns…“).
Needless to say, if you are not a fan of the show, or have never in your life watched it, you probably won’t get what the fuss is about, or the jokes.
Is it a coincidence that Mr Garrison is on the Q symbol for Queer? Maybe. But we doubt it. Everything about this game has been thought out very carefully.
The return to player rate is a very decent 96.7%. That makes South Park interesting as a NetEnt slot because, though the RTP is high, the hit frequency of wins is high to medium. So what are we talking about?
You’ll get wins in this game that’s for sure, this is a mid variance slot on mobile, meaning you’ll have times when those reels will spin and you’ll wonder if you’ll ever hit anything significant and then you hit… ok small win… nothing… nothing… sob at screen as you were sure this low volatility slot machine would pay out lots of small wins to keep you going, but instead is eating your money away… small win (good)… nothing (cry)… medium win (phew)… BIG WIN… BIG WIN (yes, Yes, YES!)…. nothing… nothing… nothing… nothing…
It’s been a long time since a mobile slot has been able to surprise us, but as chaotic as it’s theme, this South Park video slot keeps us playing and on our toes.
The random wild features hit frequently, but don’t lead to wins or lead to far bigger wins than you expected (The Beefcake Wild is particularly enjoyable and hard hitting, with wins ranging between 20-40x your bet). You’ll think you’ll have hit all the wild features, and suddenly, two hours into the game, you’ll get a new random wild feature you haven’t seen before and you’ll get three in a row of the same one. Say what now? We know slots are meant to be randomly generated, but this is the first time we’ve truly believed it and felt it.
The bonus features are too many to put in the main review – scroll down and you’ll be able to read them all. Needless to say, the Free Spins and Sticky Wild are good, but it’s really the Cartman and Kenny Mini Game that get all the glory. Not just because you can potentially get the biggest win of the game in both, but because they are GENIUS… If you have the mentality of a 10 year old, which fortunately for NetEnt, we do.
And you know what’s crazy? They are both JUST click me games. But nothing makes our heart race faster than moving Kenny forward along the road to the final potential €69,500 jackpot, trying to avoid killing him in oh so many inventive ways, from trampling cows to crashing airplanes. And nothing made us laugh harder than Cartman shouting “God damn hippies!” every time he sprays the hidden ‘bohemians’ hiding in the bushes with a fire extinguisher.
We haven’t seen South Park in years. Now we don’t have to, we can just enter the crazy chaotic politically incorrect American town with a single spin of the reels.

Normal Wild: Possibly the least imaginative of symbols, with just a blue 'Wild' written on it, this is probably a good thing as it actually makes it stand out from the rest of the chaotic symbols. Replaces all symbols except for Bonus symbols, and pay the highest winning combination on a bet line.
Beefcake Wild: "Beefcake!!" Cartman will shout (randomly triggered), before covering reel 2, 3 and 4 with a massive wild and spinning the reel once. You can potentially get all three reels covered, but we found that 99% of the time you got the top two rows. Still leads to huge wins, about 30-40x your bet, but we got one Super Mega Win at 70x our bet once which made our day.
Terrance and Philip Wild: Blink and you'll miss the randomly triggered Canadian pair who will fly across your screen in a cloud of farts and will randomly place three wild symbols on reel 2, 3 or 4.
Mr Hankey Wild: Randomly triggered (see a pattern here?) Mr Hankey the Christmas Poo will, with a song and cheery dance, replace three symbols to wild on reel 1, 3 or 5. Comes often, but not with big wins.
Kyle "Kick The Baby!" Free Spin Bonus: The one free spins feature in the game, and in all honesty, not as exciting as the rest or the random wilds. Still good fun however, with a potential max win of £/$/€37,500, get the Ike bonus symbol and you'll get 10 free spins. If during the free spins the Ike Wild shows up, he'll drop to the floor, giving Kyle the perfect opportunity to 'Kick the baby!' for a multiplier of up to 10x, random cash prizes or additional free spins.
Stan Free Spin & Sticky Wilds Bonus: Get the Wendy Bonus symbol (with, and we can't avoid saying it, puke on her face) and you'll head to the school of South Park. Here Wendy and Stan will meet for 2 re-spins, with a sticky wild in the centre of reel 3. On each spin Stan will... keep the wild sticky... and if more wilds show up, you'll get another 2 re-spins of the reels with sticky wilds... and so on... until Stan runs out of stickiness and Wendy walks away in disgust.
"Don't Kill Kenny!" Bonus Game: How long can you keep Kenny alive as you meander your way through the street of South Park? You'll get the choice of three options on the screen (top, middle, bottom) and Kenny will walk to the allocated slot, sometimes just collecting coins, other times multiplier and most of the time hopefully avoiding almost certain death. Or not. Depending on your luck. If you manage to get through the high street without killing him you'll get a jackpot of 2,500 coins as well as your winnings along the way, to a potential maximum of £/$/€69,500. We didn't get as big a win as we expected from this feature, but it was good fun trying.
Cartman "Hunt the Hippies!" Bonus Game: The least politically correct of the foursome has the best feature, especially as this is the one that could potentially give you the biggest win of the game with a £/$/€625,000 jackpot. It's also incredibly simple as you spray the bushes and get cash prizes for every hippie you hit. Get the policeman twice and the feature finishes. Get the rocker with the boom box and the screen clears again, allowing you to get more chances to pick more symbols and get more wins.
We were happy to find that the vast amount of bonus features for South Park mobile slot doesn't slow the game play at all. 80% of the time, the features you'll hit are the random wilds that seamlessly work their way into your spins, allowing you to enjoy the slot without interrupting the game play.
Some of the bonus features do load slowly, so we recommend quickspin at least to make sure the reels get to the point faster, but we are happy to say that having tested on 3G mobile networks, the spins and features were as quick as on WiFi. Best yet, the graphics and video really bring this mobile slot alive and make you feel like you are playing online, even if you are staring at it in a very small screen. Just be sure you have the sounds turned on, as it's not half as much fun without them.
It's feature heavy, and the potential wins are big, but a rarity. South Park mobile slot is really on the lower end of the volatility scale, yet is close enough to medium that you can't depend on that to keep you going. It constantly surprised us, kept us entertained and gave us 'Mega Wins' and 'Super Mega Wins' occasionally enough to give us hope for jackpots.
Ultimately, this will be best enjoyed for fans of the show who will recognise the rude and crude humour and snigger when you know you shouldn't. We did. We have one thing left to say after this behemoth of a review if you've made it this far down...
So come on down to South Park and meet some friends of mine... (You sang it didn't you?)
