About Football Star
Sound-wise, Football Star gives you an audio palette that makes you feel like you could actually be sitting in the stadium at an important international cup match. There are cheers, jeers and whistles as the action thunders through the reels. In addition to this there is a bass heavy musical track that uses lots of synths and drums to create that cool edge to the proceedings that reminds you that you’re spinning a slot where there’s a whole lot of money to be won.
The main game in Football Star uses a 243 ways to win system. Microgaming has favoured this mechanism on a number of their top slots, ever since they introduced it with their flagship title, Thunderstruck II back in 2010. It pays out a prize for any consecutive combination of three or more adjacent symbols reading from left to right on the grid. In addition to this you can adjust your wager size to find the perfect bet weighting for each spin.
Football Star has some more tricks up its base game sleeve. The first is the stacked wilds that appear on the final three reels of this online slot machine. These can help make any spin into a massive multi way winner that knocks out the top prizes. In addition to this there is a cascading win system, known as Rolling Reels. Any combination you hit on the reels, instantly pays you out a prize before disappearing from the grid. This leaves spaces into which the symbols above can drop forming new combinations and triggering the whole process again.
At any moment during a Football Star spin you can hit the Striking Wild mechanism. This starts off with an animation where a footballer comes and powers a ball into the reels – this can turn any of the middle three reels completely wild, giving you the chance to hit a massive payout trophy. The only downside to this feature is that the Rolling Reels are turned off for its duration.
Stop in three or more scatters to gain access to Football Star’s free spin round. The more scatters you hit, the more spins you’ll receive. These take place on an enhanced set of reels where the Rolling Reels mechanism is still in place – the only difference is that successive wins through this mechanism are subject to a multiplier that racks up a notch with every win on a single spin, up to a maximum of 10x. This is where you can grab the lucky run with Football Star and walk away with that trophy cup full of cash.
