I think it’s needless to tell you that football is the most popular – and the most followed – sport in Europe. Growing out of England, football has conquered a series of continents in the centuries. Even today football is an exciting pastime for kids, a source of loads of fun for fans, and a huge business for team owners. And a recent game, also coming from England (or better said from the Crown dependency called the Isle of Man), pays tribute to this excellent game in a unique way.
The company responsible for the game is called Microgaming, and has a history of over two decades in its business of developing great games for real money players. And the game in question is called Football Star, and is inspired by the most popular sport in Europe.
Released last May, in the wake of the FIFA World Cup, Football Star was the first in a series of sports-inspired slot machines informally called the “Sports Star series”. For free play and real money play Football Star at Euro Palace casino, Football Star has several features that make it an attractive game for football fans and slot machine fans alike. The Euro Palace casino is itself a great gaming destination, with hundreds of slots and other games, some very attractive promotional offers and some of the most amazing specials of the industry. Euro Palace is not the oldest gaming venue in its group, but it has built a reputation as a reliable and safe place to play.
Football Star has five reels, three rows and 243 ways to win. It comes with a feature called “Rolling Reels”, which causes its symbols involved in a winning combination to disappear from the screen. Once they are gone, others fall into their place, possibly triggering further wins in the process. This means an even bigger advantage for the player during the game’s Free Spins feature, when – aside from triggering cascading wins – each win will increase the multiplier applied to the next win.
Another special feature in Football Star – and all subsequent games in the Sports Star series – is its randomly triggered wild reel feature. During the game a player will randomly shoot, turning a complete reel into a wild, or two players will pass, turning two reels into wilds. This, along with the massive quantities of wild symbols stacked on the reels, have the potential to significantly increase the winnings of the players.
Football Star is not the only football-themed slot machine available at the Euro Palace Casino. It also features Shoot!, a slot machine paying tribute to both the legendary players of football and the magazine with the same title.
