It is true that the name Football is not the most exciting title and the slot has not official ties or affiliations with any teams or organizations. However, at first glance this could be the online slot that all sports fanatics have been waiting for, so players should get out their rattles and take a more in-depth look. Whilst Evoplay has been around since 2003, in 2014 it broke away from the parent company which is what has given them the freedom and time to really concentrate on game development and there is no doubt that this is paying great rewards. The games that they are now producing have superb graphics and are packed with bonuses and additional features. The slot game is played over a standard 3x5 reels and boasts a great high definition backdrop of a football stadium with two scantily dressed ball girls either side of the entrance. There is a massive 243 ways to win which means that players need to select their total bet across the win lines, and wins are created by matching three identical symbols anywhere on adjacent reels.
Players can take advantage of the ten bet levels and six levels of coins which make this slot ideal for all players whether high or low rollers and gives everyone the chance of some big winnings. Before we look at the regular pay outs, players should note the special reel feature. After each spin players make in the base game they can use the reel re-spin feature, and this lets the player select any reel to re-spin at an additional cost to complete some lucrative winning combinations, however the more lucrative the reel, the more expensive it is for the player to re-spin.
In total there are eleven regular symbols and the developers have been extremely careful to ensure that there are no recognizable soccer brands however players will see that many of the symbols will be very familiar. In terms of pay outs, the soccer scarf and team banner are the lowest value and will reward the player with 7 – 40 coins when they land three to five of the same symbols. The vuvuzela horn and ULTRAS banner pay from 10 – 50 coins whilst the goalkeeper’s gloves and shoes pay from 15 – 75 coins.
The higher paying symbols are far better and comprise of the linesman's flags which will pay out 30 to 150 coins, and the whistle pays from 40 – 200 coins. There is a trophy that is reminiscent of the World Cup Golden Boot pays out when just two matching symbols are landed, and there is also a jackpot of 300 coins for matching five of the same symbols. The final symbol is the golden soccer ball which rewards 20 coins for two of a kind, and up to 400 coins for a complete win line.
Even though Football the slot is not endorsed by FIFA World Cup this has not put Evoplay off, as the wild is represented by the World Cup trophy, and whilst it will not provide cash bonuses it substitutes for all regular symbols except the scatters. The wild also appears on just reel 2, 3 and 4 but during the bonus game the wilds can appear anywhere. When it comes to the bonus feature, it is perfect for all players who are fans of free spins. Landing three or more scatters (the football) rewards players with 10 free games, and players will also win 20 - 800 coins for landing 2, 3, 4 or 5 scatters. Players can also reactivate the bonus when they land an additional three scatters, and although they will only receive a further five extra spins all the bonus wins are then trebled.
