Football Star Slot Review

Have you ever dreamed of becoming a football star and be adored by millions of fans? Now you can get a glimpse of that aspiration by playing this amazing slot from Microgaming. Feel the rush of the stadium with lively 3D animations and amazing uplifting tunes.

People love this slot and you will easily see why as soon as you complete a few spins. Don’t be fooled by the static stadium background or the dull teal-colored dashboard trim as any time you spin you will be amazed by the smooth animations. These include rolling reels and explosions but you didn’t hear that from us.

Mechanics-wise, this is a type of slot you don’t get to see every day. While most other titles choose the standard spin and stop format, this one features rolling reels meaning that in some winning combinations the participating symbols will disappear while others take their place. This means you can win two, three, or more times consecutively.

Overall, Football Star is anything but boring as the intense gameplay and cheerful atmosphere will keep you hooked for hours on end. Now let’s see how the slot works.

How to Play Football Star

The game has a standard layout of 3 lines and 5 reels while the regular payline format is replaced with the 243 all-ways-win model. The controls interface is found at the bottom of the screen. It features a minimal design and starting from left to right you see the autoplay (10x, 25x, 50x, and 100x options), quickspin, spin button, stake selection, and the max bet option.

Available bets start at $0.5 and are capped at $250 per spin which is fairly high for a Microgaming slot.

You can also check out your current balance, last win amount, and current bet at the bottom of the screen.

Moving on to the symbols you can expect to see a referee, a stadium, a pair of red football shoes, and an array of football players on different mid-shot poses. Football Star offers a set of special symbols each with its unique animations. These are:

  • Football Star Logo – This is the game’s wild symbol. It cannot appear on the first two reels but it can create symbol stacks in reel 3, 4, and 5. It doesn’t substitute the scatter symbol nor create its own winning combinations.
  • A Whooshing Football – This acts as the slot’s scatter symbol and is required in order to activate the free spins bonus.

Game Rules

Football Star Features

Just like previously mentioned, this title is based on the 243 all-ways-win model so its bonus features include a special treat for all you players. Let’s take a look at this:

Rolling Reels

Microgaming is so proud of their creation that they have even trademarked this feature. All winning combinations apart from those including the scatter symbol will be removed from the board and the symbols above them will fill the empty they left behind. This process will repeat itself as long as you get winning combinations.

Rolling Reels
Striking Wild

This specific feature can be activated at any point during the regular game. A reel will be randomly selected and it will transform into a wild reel. The reason this may sound too good to be true is that it comes with a small disadvantage which is that both the rolling reel feature can’t be activated at the same time.  Also, this isn’t available during the free spins.

Striking Wild Feature
Free Spins

Get 3 whooshing football symbols and you win 15 free spins. Get 4 and you will be rewarded with 20. On the extremely rare occasion, you are super lucky and get 5 the game will offer you 25 free spins. Here’s where it gets interesting.

The Rolling Reels feature is available during the free spins and for each rolling reel, you will be awarded a multiplier value which increases for every consecutive win. This value resets to 1 when the shifting reels stop forming winning combinations. The only downside to this feature is that the free spins bonus can’t be reactivated during the spins.
