Football Star Slots

Football Star is a MicroGaming designed slot cantered all around the beautiful game. On the reels you’ll find a number of soccer related symbols, including the referee, football boots, a shirt and the stadium. However, it’s the players who really make the game and here you’ll find five in different coloured strips. One is a goalkeeper, while the other four are outfielders who are heading, tackling, shooting and even trying an overhead kick. This is a feature rich slot, which includes randomly awarded wild reels, rolling reels, a free spins feature round and many more ways to win than usual.

As well as there being a stadium as a symbol, the game is actually set in a stadium, with floodlights illuminating the night sky, while the expectant crowd awaits the match. The mix of the different kits and football related symbols ensure that this is a game filled with colour, with reds, yellows and greens dominating the reels. The game is certainly eye catching, but it’s a little disappointing that there is a lack of animation on the reels, the symbols simply flashing when forming part of a win line, when there was much scope for better – even just showing a player shooting or heading the ball. The accompanying sound is much better however; as crowd chants throughout and sporting themes join both wins and the feature rounds.

  • Playing Football Star

    The game has 5 reels but instead of the more usual win lines, you’ll find 243 ways to win here. This means that you’ll gain a win when landing symbols on adjacent reels from left to right, irrespective of the position on the reel. These 243 ways to win come at the cost of 50 credits, so you’ll multiply your coin size by 50 for each spin. Fortunately wins come along much more often than a goal might and you’ll need at least 3 adjacent symbols to gain a win – the red kitted striker being the highest paying symbol of all, winning you 500 coins for five in a row.

    This slot enjoys the rolling reels system. Every time you achieve a win, the winning symbols will explode and be replaced by the symbols from above (new symbols will appear if needed to at the top of the slot). The new positions of the symbols might lead to another win, and this will NOT come at the cost of an extra spin. The symbols will continue to explode until no win is achieved and only at this point will a new spin take place. This gives the opportunity of a large number of wins at the cost of just one spin – which is never a bad thing!

    Wilds are always welcome, but at Football Star you’ll actually find more than 40, all of these stacked on reels 3, 4 and 5. The title symbol acts as the wild and this will substitute for every other symbol on the reels apart from the scatter. As an added bonus there is also a ‘striking wild’ feature. This is randomly awarded and will suddenly turn reels 2, 3 or 4 wild, this feature also guaranteeing a win – the rolling reels will not apply when awarded this win.

    The final symbol at the game is a football which doubles as the scatter. Land two or more of these scatters anywhere on the reels and you’ll win an immediate cash prize, but three or more will also see you enter the free spins round. You’ll have 15 free spins for the minimum 3 scatters, with an added 5 spins for each added scatter. When the free spins start the backing to the reels turn black giving the game a very different look and each spin differs slightly from the base game. Here, every time the rolling reels are activated each successive win will increase the multiplier up to a maximum of 10x your win amount. The multiplier will reset with each new spin.

    Final Verdict

    There are a large number of sport themed slots out there, but you’ll have a tough time finding one with as much variety as you’ll find here. There is something to look out for on every spin and the moment the rolling reels kick into action you’ll be more than happy seeing win after win paying out. Add in the stacked wilds, randomly awarded wild reels and a nice, long free spins round and you’ve got a slot which is action packed from start to finish. Can you handle the pressure of the big game?
