The beginning of the World Cup Tournament is less than one week away, and football fans all over the world are gearing up for the exciting competition. Companies from all over the world and in a wide variety of industries have launched new products that appeal to World Cup viewers, and the online casino industry is no different. Every time the World Cup comes around, online casino designers come out with new football-themed games; here are our top picks:

For the last World Cup in Germany, Microgaming released World Cup Mania, an online slots game that looked at the tournament from the perspective of the fans. The symbols featured beer, hotdogs and all of the treats that can be bought from vendors at football games, as well as fog horns and cheering fans. The graphics were vibrant, highlighting the exciting nature of the World Cup tournament.

Playtech and Cryptologic have also released football-themed online slots. Football Rules from Playtech takes the traditional route, featuring symbols with football uniforms, fans, stadiums and footballs. Cryptologic’s game, Free Kick, is very similar, featuring traditional soccer-themed symbols and taking place on a green backdrop that resembles a soccer field.

This year, Microgaming released Soccer Safari, just in time for the 2010 World Cup. Because the tournament takes place in South Africa this year, Microgaming decided to create a theme based around safari animals. The game features a football match between two teams of animals commonly found in the jungle, including elephants, cougars and warthogs. The game is quite cute and presents a completely original take on traditional World Cup casino games.
