Top Microgaming Gaming Casinos

Football Star was one of the very first football slots to be released on the run up to the 2014 football World Cup. This 243 way video slot includes rolling reels, stacked wild icons and a free spins bonus with multipliers. Soccer fever has well and truly arrived, but is the slot any good?

Football Star Theme

The theme is bright, loud and full of energy just like watching a live football match. The reels are arranged in a 5x3 configuration and appear between a floodlit football stadium.

There's plenty to get excited about on the reels too because many of the icons are designed in the image of real life footballers. You'll find a Mario Balotelli lookalike and a striking figure resembling Christiano Ronaldo. Other icons include footballs, football players, referees, football boot and various other football related items and tidbits.

Betting Options and More Functions

The control panel is laid out well with all the usual Microgaming refinements. You can choose your bets by configuring the coin value and number of coins per line. This is reflected on the 'Bet' display, which is the amount wagered per game.

Bets can be made in the usual manual way or you can use automatic spins. Either method uses your preset wager and works seamlessly.

Football Star Features

The 243 way format is all well and good but Football Star also includes Rolling Reels. This means that winning icons disappear in a cloud of smoke and leave a space. These spaces are then filled by more icons that appear from above.

The reels include stacked wilds on reels 3, 4 and 5. This means there are over 40 that could appear on any spin. These Football Star wild logos can substitute for any other logo except the football scatters. You could also gain a striking wild feature at random which turns one of the reels wild and guarantees a win of some sort.

Three, four or five football scatters will award 15, 20 or 25 free spins respectively. Each of these spins can benefit from Rolling Reels which basically increases a multiplier in steps with every consecutive win. This can reach 10x with 5 consecutive wins, but that would be a very rare occurrence.

Our Take on Football Star

Gameplay would have been flawless if a football inspired bonus had been included and is still exciting because of the multiplying Rolling Reel bonus. The most important consideration is that football fever is at an all time high right now, and for this reason we think Football Star will be a big hit with casino gamblers.

    I wonder if someone has ever reached the 10x multiplier in the Bonus round ? I have played better slots, the graphics are not that much a hit. I don't play it anymore. I mean there is BreakAway and also CoolCat which can be played.

    I like this slot more than breakaway, better quality and audio. But like in breakaway free spins tend to pay 80% of the time about 5-10x bet only and when you consider that the spins are not that easy even to trigger that is very annoying. And the 20% of the time the win somewhere 50-100x. Biggest wins have come to my from the base game with 3 stacked wilds and top symbols.

    A clear breakaway clone. Just like breakaway, this game is all about the wilds. If you get some 5 oaks with wilds, when the win breaks away and drops more wilds you have a chance to be on a multiple 5oak winning streak. Apart from that, it doesnt pay much at all. 3 of the same symbols is always a fraction of your bet back, even 4 isnt that great. I have had 500x wins a few times on this slot thanks to the wilds. Overall its all about preference. If you like this type of slot (with the "win again" and again style) and don't mind pushing for all or nothing in the hope of having some 5 oak wins with wilds, then give it a go. I much prefer other slots but I do play this occasionally

    243 ways,yeah sure! the first two reels are very often different without a combination with the others,so a full reel you never get. also a bonusgame is hard to get.

    This game can pay when it is hot. I have not been too lucky on it most times though, but still play it and hope for a great win one day, I had a fairly decent one awhile back. It is much more colorful then Breakaway, but Coolwolf being similar to this has been sooo good to me, I have had many good wins on Cool Wolf, this slot, hasn't been as kind to me, but I feel it will one day. It is 50cents a spin so I don't play it much unless I have a good win somewhere else and come and try my luck here. I love the free spins here, the rolling reels are awesome, it is a game I recommend others to try if you have a fairly good amount of money in your account.

    Clone of cool wolf and break away, but this one is my favorite, because yes... I like football theme. Can't say unfortunately that i really like this game, no, because it can go on mood and did not give freespins feature for the long time. But everything else is ok and this slot can give a lot of winnings.

    Nothing much to say about this slot. It is similar to Cool Wolf and Break Away. With those stacked wilds and increasing multiplier on free spins, it has a potential for huge wins. But also really difficult to get a big win too! I lost a lot of money on it without win, just little wins. Background sound is annoying.

    Some people seem to really like this slot, but I lost a lot of money on it without any sort of decent win, just little wins that where equal to my bet or slightly more or slightly less. Maybe reading some of these other reviews i should give this game another chance.
