What separates the game from the others is the great game section which possesses some real great attributes. Besides the 3-level Jackpots that can be won here randomly the slot has an awesome own prize to give which is 20.000 coins if 5 Wild symbols appear on an active payline and although this Striker character can’t multiply wins but at least if just one single such symbol appear on the first regardless of the arrangement of other icons on the table it can pay back x8 or x9 times of line bet depending on where it landed on that reel. It can possible because this product is a 25-payline slot and any spots on the first reels are member of at least 8 winning combinations. We also can expect some nice returns even with the second best paying symbol, too as it has an ability to reward us 5000 times of line bet, so I think we have really no reason to complain about the lack of potential here.
The Soccer Ball is working for the game as Scatter and has very ordinary qualities which partly are to award in best case 100 times of total bet prize and partly to trigger bonus side game. Though that Goal Kicking Feature should be a little bit more impressive in regards to graphics quality but luckily it’s an interesting and enjoyable multi-stage extra session. After getting 3 Scatters anywhere on the reels during base game we have to participate in a little penalty kick competition where we have 5 attempts to score goals and the first four tries may award number of free spins and bonus prizes (of course if we can beat the goalie) and the last one where we have to kick a gold ball can decide whether we double or not the already collected bonus credits and free spin conditions.
Combining a traditional bonus game like extra with free spins are not always a good idea because it can reduce the occasions when we have a possibility to play with a secondary game but here it’s not a problem because it’s not rare when going through this whole bonus thing is really worth and we can be satisfied what these bonuses cumulative give us back. The Kick bonus in itself is already a great mini game but when we finally arrive to the free spins and the wins are doubled there and recognize that the winning combinations and the Wild appear during that session more frequently it’s also a very promising thing.
Back to my introductory session with the game I owe some explanation why I remember with pleasure for this game. That time I lost relatively much on sports betting thanks to some very unexpected results and when I landed on this game – previously not knowing anything about this game and the name of Winning Shot somehow didn’t suggest that this is another type of football related gambling product – so I really didn’t want to play with it because of its theme but I thought my day couldn’t have been any worse so I started to play. I had no massive balance and to be honest I didn’t really care what was going to happen when I could spin out 3 Scatters after a 5-8 mins. playtime and I was succeeded to score some goals (even with gold ball) and the bonus gave me back around $70 when the free spins was started. There I suppose I could witness a one-time wonder where once 4 Wilds appeared on the first four reels and the other symbols were better paying and on right spots and because of the doubled win values that single spin rewarded me around $150 and at the end of the spin the two side games surprised me around $250, which couldn’t cover my previous losses but at least it made me a believer again and I could happy about something on that day.
Overall, though I don’t think it would be a special game in any ways but I consider it as a good and very decent product which possesses the very principal qualities what I think a modern slot game should has (though the 20.000 coins Jackpot of top line win is very respectable) and because of my memories regarding to this product I never did and will never mind if I play here and spend some time with it and got another perspective of dealing with football matches and I do that in a fair environment.
