Football Star was released to tie in to the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil. It hasn’t quite lived up to all the hype because quite frankly, it is rather the same as many other football themed slots that have come before it. Football Star’s graphic are pretty standard and simple if you will. Because Football Star is not licensed, it contains rather generic looking imagery. Football Star does have a non-progressive jackpot worth 62,500 coins, if you can land all 5 scatters at once, located anywhere on the reels, though.
Something Of An Own-Goal, If We’re Being Honest
Football Star has pretty big coin sizes, which range from 0.01 up to 0.50. Players can then choose to wager anything from 1 to 10 coins per spin. As you can imagine, Football Star isn’t that cheap to play. It is a 5-reel, 243 ways to win slot, so you cannot wager on each line individually. This means that you’re going to have to cough up to 0.50 per spin at the minimum, to play. If you really want to push the boat out, Football Star can cost you a hefty 250.00 per spin.
Special features can sometimes save a slot from scoring an own-goal. How do Football Stars compare? Not brilliant, we’re afraid. If a player lands 3, 4 or 5 scatter icons anywhere on the reels at once, they can trigger a free spins bonus round, worth 15, 20 or 25 free games, respectively. This free spins bonus round contains rolling reels. This feature means that the more consecutive wins that you encounter in the bonus, the higher the multiplier will increase. Players can end up with wins worth 10x multipliers in this bonus round.
The wild symbol is the Football Star logo. It can appear stacked on the third, fourth and fifth reels. When it does appear, it can replace all symbols, barring the scatter icon. It is also possible for the wild to appear 40 times on the reels, which as you can imagine, could land you some serious money. There are other ways to win with wilds, though. At any point in the game, the Striking Wild feature may randomly activate, where a footy player will shoot wilds onto the screen, offering a guaranteed win.
Football Star has some okay special features, but they aren’t spectacular. This slot would be so much better if it contained some less generic imagery, and had a bit more excitement to it. Brutal truth? Football Star is a swing and a miss.
