Football rules! Yeah! Whether you like football or not, it doesn't really matter, but if you're a football fan, fanatics included, this game will surely grab your attention and urge you to give it a try. If you're not into football, this game might still make you wanna try after reading this review! Where else can you get a chance at penalty shootouts and bring home lovely cash prizes...if not in Football Rules! No penalty misses, no hitting the goal posts, and definitely no over-the-top shots...it's a g-o-a-l everytime!!! That's a promise! :D
This 20-paylines 5-reels game brought football fever (also known as 'soccer' in certain countries) right into the homes of millions many years ago. Not so good for the wifeys though. Husband goes out for a football game at the local stadium. Comes home and continue for more football games on tv. Come bedtime, it's "not tonight hun, I've got a game on" at an online casino! Hehehe. Nah, that wasn't me! I'm not so into football or soccer, except for Football Rules. Turn the volume up real loud and you'd get the crowd roaring in your own home...just like at the stadium! Just watch out though...for any flying cups or saucers from the wifey! You wanna see goals...not twinkling stars!!! :D
So what's for prizes? Here, the red jerseys are at the lowest rank (Liverpool in their early career? ;)), followed by the blues, whites, striped reds and striped blues (the striped blue and white jerseys were probably still enroute from Argentina then, hehehe). Then there's the ball, the referee and the goalie. Recognise the goalie? Definitely not Gordon Banks that...but he's worth x1000 line bet that guy! The stadium is the scatter symbol, which pays out up to x50 total bet for 5 of them. Get these in the free spins game and see your wins tripling! Not the tripling falling down kind, the x3 kind...so that x50 would turn into x150! This ain't bad at all! A picture of a cheering fan is the wild symbol, paying out the usual x10,000 line bet for 5-of-those-wilds. And to start your adrenalin racing up, catch that elusive trophy on reels 1 and 5 simultaneously and get ready for an exciting penalty shootout bonus game! This bonus game works similarly as in A Night Out bonus game, whereby you make your selection for spins and win multiplier. In the first scene, six balls are shown, each hiding the number of spins to be won, from 3 to 20 spins. In the second scene, you pick the win multiplier of x2 up to x10. Choose carefully though, and always take note of which ball carried the highest spins and win multiplier...because at times, the 20 spins and the x10 win carriers would remain in the same position over 2 or 3 bonus games! So, once you're ready, click on your ball...ooops...I mean the ball on the screen...and see just how beautifully you have executed your penalty shot! Wherever you place your ball trajectory, the goalie would go the other way! The other way??? Yep! As I said earlier, definitely not Gordon Banks this goalie! Only a rookie! Hehehe. Don't forget, keep an eye on the highest spins and win multiplier carriers! Pick them out in the next bonus game and watch what those 20 spins x10 multiplier could bring in! If you're currently on top of the world, you could even catch those 5 wilds on a payline with a x10 win multiplier, and take home a super huge handsome prize! No more flying cups and saucers at home I'm telling you! Flying nighties...probably! Hehehehe.
Personally, I have not managed to catch those lovely wilds in fives, only in fours, but yes for 5 scatters in the free spins game. Those x3 win multipliers can be deliciously rewarding at the right time, or quite a bore at other times. But that's just how things go in real life too. The ball and the world is round. Nobody knows where fortune can be found. But I certainly found lots and lots of fun at Football Rules. Give it a try, you might love it too! :)
