Football Star Overview and Features
Microgaming’s Football Star is the follow up to the online gaming developer’s hit slot ‘Breakaway’. While the theme is slightly different – Breakaway was based on hockey, while Football Star is obviously designed around the game of football – the structure and the atmosphere feel the same. Players who liked Breakaway or are a fan of the game of football will definitely appreciate Microgaming’s latest venture which promises a $12,500 jackpot.
Football Star is a 5 reel and 243 pay-line video slot. To make it easier for its players the game operates as a 50 pay-line slot. Wagers can range from $0.50 to $50 and a maximum of ten coins can be bet per line.
Although the game does not have a bonus round to brag about, the free spins round is lucrative with the promise of a $12,500 payout or a 10x multiplier. The free spins multiplier value increases with every win during the free spin round, which starts from 2x going up to 10x. The Striking Wild which converts symbols on reels 2, 3, and 4 into wilds, and the Rolling Reels award you with more free spins and winning combinations.
Symbols and Graphics
