How to play Football Star
Microgaming have created a football fanatic’s dream slot with 5 reels and 3 rows, and 243 ways to win.
The graphics are as bright and exciting as the game itself and the roaring crowd mixed with suspenseful beats will make you feel like you’re watching the game from the stadium, though the symbols are all animated which does detract from this feeling.

Football Star symbols
There are an array of football related symbols lining the reels with the lower value symbols being represented by the football boots, the jersey, the coach and the stadium.
The middle value symbols are represented by the four players, with the symbol of the player in the red jersey scoring you 2500 coins if spin five (the highest possible win out of the lower value symbols).
- Scatter symbol: The Scatter symbol is the football with the text ‘Scatter’. You need to spin at least three of these to activate the Free Spins feature, which we will detail below.
- Wild symbol: The Wild symbol is the Football Star slot logo and substitutes for all symbols except the Scatter. It can also appear Stacked on reels 3, 4, and 5.
Football Star Bonus Features
This slot is quite generous in terms of bonus features as not only does it feature Stacked Wilds that we mentioned above, but also Collapsing Reels, Striking Wilds and Free Spins too.
- Collapsing Reels: This is a bonus that occurs throughout the game and works when you get a winning combination as these symbols will explode and new symbols will fall in their place, giving you another chance at a win.
- Striking Wilds: To coincide with the the Football theme, randomly throughout the game you will get a striker goal and here the entire middle reel will turn Wild, giving you more chances at a win.
- Free Spins: The best feature of them all in this slot is the 25 free spins on offer, though you do need to spin five Scatter symbols. Four Scatters will land you 20 free spins, and three will land you 15 free spins, which is still a generous amount.
That’s not all to this feature, however, as the Collapsing Reels remain in the Free Spins bonus, with consecutive wins scoring players a multiplier of 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x, and then 10x.
Our thoughts on Football Star
Football Star is perfect for football fans, but the free spins draw other slot enthusiasts too. We managed to spin 15 free spins within just a few rounds, but getting the big multipliers wasn’t easy.
We still won a fair amount and the Collapsing Reels made it feel as though we were getting free re-spins, during the Free Spins feature.
Football Star is available on the HTML5 platform as well as on the Quickfire platform, available via your browser. This means you can not only play on your desktop computer or laptop, but on the go on your smartphone or tablet – a big plus in our books.
Most modern devices are compatible, such as Samsung tablets and smartphones, and other Android devices, as well as Apple iPhones and iPads, Windows smartphones and tablets and more. Simply follow our links to our recommended online casinos to see if your device is compatible.
Overall this is a fun slot, with many chances to win big, which is always well received by our team.
