Progressive Jackpot: Yes
Playtech has created several slots with football as the theme. Fortunately, the developer has managed to make each football-themed slot engaging in a different way. The same is true of this 5-reel, 25-payline slot. It boasts a colourful interface and amazing sound effects that can truly awaken the football spirit in anyone who gives this game a shot.
Gameplay begins with setting your bets. You may start by clicking on the Line Bet +/- tabs to set the amount you want to wager per line. You may then click on the Lines +/- tabs to set the number of lines you want to play. To set the reels into motion, click on the Spin tab at the rightmost end of the control panel. You may also click on the Turbo Mode tab to the left of the Spin tab to quicken the pace of the reels. For a chosen number of uninterrupted spins, click on the Autoplay tab to the left of the Turbo Mode tab.
You will not see any of the usual playing card symbols in this game, as all base game symbols are theme-related. You will see five different football shirts, which represent the low-value symbols. There’s a plain red, blue, and white shirt as well as a red-and-black and blue-and-red striped shirt. The game’s high-value symbols are represented by a football, a referee, and a goalie.
The game’s Wild symbol is represented by a football fan with a banner saying “wild” behind him. This symbol pays out on its own and can also substitute for any of the other base game symbol, with the exception of the Scatter and Bonus symbols. The game’s Scatter symbol is represented by a bird’s eye view of the stadium, and the Bonus symbol is represented by a player who looks like Bobby Moore, holding the World Cup. These two symbols are key to the game’s main bonus features.
One of the game’s main bonus features is the familiar Free Spins bonus round. This is activated when you land the Bonus symbol anywhere on the first and fifth reels at the same time. You will be taken to a different screen where you get to pick a football, which reveals the number of free spins you get. You may get anywhere between one and twenty free spins.
Before the free spins begin, you will also be made to choose the direction in which to take a penalty. Your choice will determine the multiplier that will be applied to all your wins in this round. You could get any multiplier between 2x and 20x. If you manage to land the Bonus symbol on the first and fifth reels on any of your free spins, you will get five more free spins.
The game also has a special feature called the Dollar Ball. You can play this mini game if you click on the ‘Enable’ button at the top right corner of the screen. This is a lottery-type game where you get to pick 5 numbers from 49. Each spin will be considered a new draw, and you win money by matching any or all of the numbers you picked. If you manage to match all five numbers, you get to win the progressive jackpot. Of course, this mini game costs extra, but the progressive jackpot is often well worth the extra cost.
