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.

"Way too tight for me. Even a pretty decent deposit doesn't last and bonus rounds are pretty much non-existent. Playing .50 bet spinning the reels 74-100 times with no bonus round seems pretty tight to me. Until they loosen up a bit, I will be depositing elsewhere. I do like the bitcoin deposit and withdrawal feature but doesn't do much good for withdrawals if you can't win enough to make one. "READ
