Microgaming released the Football Star slot in 2014, just before the World Cup entertained millions of viewers that summer. It is built on a 5x3 reel set and features 243 ways to win.
The RTP value of Football Star sits at 96.29% and its variance can be described as mid-range. Players can bet from £0.50 to £50 per spin and the max win limit is 125,000 coins. In a market packed with sports-related games, Football Star offers an exciting and engaging trip down memory lane to the heady football summer of yesteryear.
Football Star is an electric riot of noise and colour, much like a football game, so it’s a good thing Microgaming has kept the controls nice and simple. Players can adjust the size of their bets by altering coins per line and the coin value itself. The precise bet amount per spin is shown in the ‘Bet’ area.
If clicking over and over to spin isn’t your thing, you can easily set up the autoplay feature, which works using the current bet size. Football Star features Rolling Reels, where winning combinations of symbols disappear to make room for more symbols to take their place.
If you have ever been to a football game (or watched one on TV) you’ll know how lively and exuberant these events are and Microgaming has successfully replicated that atmosphere in Football Star. packed with visual energy, you can almost imagine yourself sitting in a bright football stadium.
A number of famous faces make an appearance as symbols - Christiano Ronaldo and Mario Balotelli, to name just two - alongside football-related items such as boots, footballs, jerseys, referees, striking players are more.
Football Star was released in time for the 2014 World Cup and much like that highly anticipated event, it is packed with the sounds of thousands of fans as they watch and react to the action on the pitch.
The crowd goes wild each time the player lands a winning combination and the stadium practically explodes with the sound of happy fans when the striking Wild rewards the player. We can even hear a small portion of what sounds like the famous football chant so popular with footie fans when a particularly lucrative combo lands on the reels.
There are 243 ways to win on this video slot and the Rolling Reels help to take full advantage of them. The Football Star logo is the Wild symbol and it can appear on reels 3 to 5. It can substitute for any other symbol except the Scatter.
Free spins are activated when three or more Scatters, featuring the soaring football, land on the same spin. The player then receives between 15 and 25 free spins, depending on how many Scatters have landed. During free spins, the Rolling Reels also include multipliers, which increase on each consecutive spin up to a limit of x10.
Football Star is an excellent choice for gamblers who also love the beautiful game. Astute players will notice the similarities with Break Away, the hockey-themed slot released two years prior to Football Star. In our opinion, both offer a fantastic experience that sports lovers will appreciate.
