The Football Glory slot is produced by Yggdrasil Gaming. Yggdrasil Gaming take their name from Norse mythology where Yggdrasil is a magical tree where dragons lived and Odin sacrificed himself. Yggdrasil Gaming are one of the smaller slot development companies on the market at the moment – primarily focusing on lottery and scratch card game – and do not offer a full casino platform. They lease their games out to casinos using other platforms as a bolt on package. Yggdrasil Gaming publish the Return to Player/House Edge of their slots games within the game help file. The House Edge of Football Glory is 3.9%.
Football Glory is a 5 reel game that is 4 symbols high. It has 25 paylines, playing from left to right.
It will be of no surprise to learn that this slot has a football theme, and by football I mean soccer. The background is a stadium and the symbols are made up from a combination of players and various different trophies.
Wild – The Wild symbol is the “Wild Badge”, which will substitute for all symbols other than Free Spins symbols, Silver Cups and Gold Cups.
Free Spins – You need to land 3 or more of the Free Spins symbols anywhere on the reels at once to trigger the feature.
Superstar Symbols – The Football Player symbols are all described as “Superstar Symbols” and come in 3 different colours. At the bottom of the reels there is a meter for each of them and every time you form a win with one of the Superstar Symbols you will fill part of that meter. The more you win the more you will fill the meter. Once you have filled the meter you will trigger the Free Spins, during which Superstar mode will be in play.
Gold and Silver Cups – The Gold and Silver Cups land on the 5th and 4th reels respectively and award different Bonus prizes, in both the base game and the Free Spins.
Superstar Mode – If you trigger the Superstar Mode by filling one of the meters then you will be given 7 Free Spins and the triggering Superstar symbol will become a Sticky Wild during those spins.
Free Spins – If you land 3, 4 or 5 Free Spins symbols you will be given 7, 14 or 21 Free Spins. During the Free Spins a random modifier will be in place, with each one described below:
All Stars Free Spins – If this modifier triggers then all the Superstar symbols will turn into sticky wilds when they land on the reels.
Sticky Wild – 1 Sticky Wild is added to the reels.
Wild Reel – One reel will be filled with sticky wilds.
Extra Spins – You will be given between 1-3 Free Spins.
Extra Cups – 5 additional Gold and Silver Cups are added to the reels.
Silver and Gold Cup Instant Prizes:
Silver Cup in the base game – 50 – 1000 Coins or 7-21 Free Spins.
Silver Cup in the Free Spins – 50 – 1000 Coin, 2-4 additional Free Spins, a Wild reel or 1-2 extra Wilds.
Gold Cup in the base game – 250 – 10,000 Coins or 7-21 Free Spins.
Gold Cup in the Free Spins – 250 – 10,000 Coin, 2-4 additional Free Spins, a Wild reel or 2 extra Wilds.
Football Glory lacks the usual visual punch I have grown to expect from Yggdrasil. That doesn’t mean it isn’t worth checking out, as there are plenty of features on offer to keep you entertained but some of the shine I was expecting this to have has most certainly been lost. You get Free Spins that can be triggered in 2 different ways and if you trigger them the traditional way (with Scatters) you will be given an additional modifier that has the potential to pay well. There is also a bonus feature that awards instant cash prizes and Free Spins, plus the standard wild symbol. The house edge is standard and as such I wouldn’t steer you away from this one, just don’t expect it to look all that special.
