Microgaming released the Football Star slot just in time for the World Cup

May 10, 2014.

Eagerly awaiting fans would be very pleased to know that Microgaming software has just released their latest slot game ‘Football Star’. For starters, the game is only available at a few selected Microgaming casinos, like Thrills Casino. Both download and instant play versions are available but is currently only accessible in real money mode. Unfortunately, a mobile version may take a while before Football Star becomes available.

Players would be delighted with the intro screen showing 3 reels of fully stacked Football Star wilds on reels 3, 4 and 5, indicating what can be expected in the game. A lovely spectator-filled stadium forms the scenario backdrop, accompanied by a very catchy tune and spirited crowd chanting, just like being at a real football stadium awaiting the start of a game. This infectious melody and chanting of the crowd may just get the feet tapping along unknowingly!

Game Controls

The game control buttons are neatly laid out at the bottom of the screen and very easy to use. Bet amounts can be raised or lowered by clicking on the small left or right red arrows. Auto Play can be activated by clicking on the rectangular red button or stopped by the oval red button on the far right, which is also the start spin button. Paytable listing can be viewed via the View Pays link on the far left.

Features of the Game

Football Star plays like a 3-in-1 game. There’s fully stacked Football Star wilds on reels 3, 4 and 5, then there’s rolling reels spins whenever a win is achieved, and there’s also a randomly activated Striking Wild feature with a guaranteed win! Then on top of all these, there’s also the usual free spins feature game with a possible 10x win multiplier! With such 4 features available, Football Star should satisfy just about any player’s crave for entertainment and wins.

In the main game, whenever there’s a win, the winning symbols would explode and a rolling reels spin is activated, creating further chances at wins. This rolling reels spin feature continues with every winning combination and only stop when no more win is gained. Stacked wilds are usually followed by similar stacked wilds drop-downs, up to a possible of 3 reels of fully stacked wilds, and it is this 3 reels of fully stacked wilds that could create huge win possibilities, especially if it is gained in the free spins feature game! 

Striking Wild

Also in the main game, a Striking Wild feature may be randomly activated, whereby a player comes on screen, kicks a ball and turn one of the reels into an expanded wild reel. Only 1 reel can be transformed into an expanded wild reel but it guarantees a win each and every time! This feature does not happen during free spins and rolling reels spins are also not available for wins created by this Striking Wild feature.

3, 4 or 5 scatters anywhere on the reels trigger 15, 20 and 25 free spins. The first free spin start with a 1x win multiplier and every win would move the win multiplier indicator to the next higher level, up to the maximum 10x. However, each no win spin would move it back down 1 level. When combined with 3 fully stacked wilds on reels 3, 4 and 5, and with successful wins from rolling reels spins, incredibly huge wins could indeed be gained.
