The Football Fever slots game can be found at casinos offering Genii software. Genii is one of the newer software developers in the online gaming market. Alongside many of the smaller casino software providers Genii focus heavily on slots games. The House Edge/RTP of the Genii slots games is sometimes listed within the paytable for the newer games in their catalogue. For the older games, as Genii is partnered with UK licensed operators and the UKGC license requires the publication of this information, RTP figures can be found on numerous casino sites. However, Football Fever is not currently listed with any UK licensed operators and as such the RTP is unknown.
Football Fever is a 5 reel game that is 3 symbols high. The game does not use paylines, instead it operates using winways, of which there are 243 in total. Only the highest win will pay out and all wins pay left to right on adjacent symbol combinations.
Wild – The Wild symbol is the “Football”. The “Football” symbol will substitute for all symbols other than the “Whistle” and the “Yellow Card” symbols. The “Football” symbol is the most valuable symbol in the game, with 5 of them earning you 750 coins.
Free Spins– The “Whistle” symbol is the Free Spins symbol. 3 or more will trigger the game’s Free Spins feature. The symbol is a Scatter, meaning that it will trigger without needing to be part of any paylines.
Bonus – The “Yellow Card” symbol is the game’s Bonus symbol. 3 or more of them anywhere on the reels will trigger the game’s Bonus feature.
Free Spins – Landing 3 of the “Whistle” symbols will award you with 5 Free Spins. 4 of the “Whistle” symbols will award you with 10 Free Spins. 5 of the “Whistle” symbols will award you with 15 Free Spins. Free Spins can be re-triggered and all wins during the feature are multiplied by 3.
Bonus – The game’s bonus round looks like a penalty shootout, but is essentially a simple flip and reveal game. Take each penalty to see what cash prizes you can earn.
Based on the 2010 World Cup, Football Fever fails to live up to the hype that that competition earned for itself. The game does not look great and the features are all pretty limited. Chances are that you are unlikely to find yourself playing Football Fever any time soon as it’s difficult to see a casino picking it up now. There are free spins and a bonus round but that is not enough to lift the game’s spirit. Not knowing the house edge means we cannot comment on the value for money on offer. As such it is difficult to rate the game too highly, something that could change if Football Fever is ever picked up by an operator.
