Football Star is one of the new Microgaming breed of video slots that offer 243 ways to win. It is based around the international game of football (soccer for readers in the United States) and the background makes it look like you are in a stadium filled to sell out capacity. I was really impressed with how colorful the graphics are in comparison to many online slot machines in o far as to how the colors pop off the screen. The game offers five reels and three rows, free spins, wild symbols and plenty of chances to win. This is one of the slots that feature the “rolling reels” play. How this work is when you hit a winning combination of symbols, they drop and new symbols appear in their place, giving you the chance to win again and again. You will even occasionally see a string of multiple wins for a nice run. As you hit a string caused by the rolling reels, you gain a multiplier that can be tracked across the top of the video screen.
Football Star Slot Symbols
The symbols used include those of five different football players, each with a number on their jersey. The five numbers are 1, 4, 5, 8 and 19. Other play symbols include a football (soccer ball) a stadium, shoes or cleats, a referee or official and the Football Star game logo. The Football Star logo is the wild symbol for the game and the football or soccer ball is the scatter symbol. The wild symbol does not count for scatter symbols, but automatically counts for any other symbols to give you additional chances to win.
Football Star Game Play
Football Star pay outs start at 150 coins for three player symbols wearing number 1 or 4 starting on the left and go up to 5000 coins for five players wearing jersey number 19 in a row. The Football Star wild logo is stacked on reels three, four and five.
The bonus round for the Football Star slot machine is randomly triggered. This round offers huge wins as the 2nd, 3rd or 4th reel changes to all wild symbols. If you somehow aren’t lucky enough to hit a winning combination the other reels spin again automatically until you win. Free spins are unlocked by hitting three or more of the football symbol scatters. You can win 15, 20 or 25 free spins and the round offers a multiplier of 2, 3, 4, 5, or 10 times. Unlike most slots offering free spins, you cannot trigger more free spins within the free spins.
The minimum wager is only $0.50 and the top wager is $250, which is steep for many but a great option for high wagering players. The only option you need to be concerned with is the size of your bet. Then simply hit the spin button, sit back and enjoy the action as it unfolds.
While Football Star is a standard video slot and does not include a slot progressive jackpot, it does offer a jackpot of $262,500. I recommend checking it out for the great graphics and game play whether you are a football fan or not.
