February 1, 2023, Johannesburg, South Africa (Press Release) – February is the month of love – and South Africa’s Springbok Casino loves whales! This month they’ve published a collection of trailers from movies starring whales that includes Free Willy, Finding Dory and Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home.
The list of whale-themed movies begins with Free Willy (1993), a feel-good classic where a 12-year-old orphan forms a close bond with a young captive killer whale and helps him escape. Blackfish (2013) is a documentary about whales in captivity, and how subjecting them to a tiny confined space for human entertainment is horrendously cruel and unusual punishment.
In Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home (1986) the Star Trek crew travels back in time to 1986 to retrieve some humpback whales and bring them back to 2286 so that they can answer a mysterious signal and save the earth.
In the Heart of the Sea (2015) is based on the true story of the New England whaling ship, Essex, whose encounter in 1820 with a giant whale inspired Herman Melville's classic, Moby Dick – unarguably the most famous whale in history.
In Finding Dory (2016), the sequel to Finding Nemo, Dory learns to ‘speak whale’ by talking through pipes to her childhood buddy Destiny, a short-sighted whale shark.
The feature also includes three documentaries: Best Whale Moments Captured on Earth, Insane Biology of the Sperm Whale, and Top 10 Whale Jumps.
This month Springbok players can take 25 free spins on the new Mermaid Royale.
Meerkat Misfits is a high volatility game with four meerkats whose mission is to protect the animals of the African savannah from poachers and a four stage free spins feature with increasing win multipliers.
Springbok Casino, South Africa's favourite online casino, has hundreds of slots and table games, all played in rands. Customer service is available in either English or Afrikaans.
