The Football Rules slots game can be found at Playtech casinos. Playtech do not publish the house edge of their games, however several established Playtech casinos have started releasing this information and on the CasinoMeister forum, the Boyle Casino Manager confirmed that Playtech slots games are not configurable at the operators end. As such, it is possible to identify that the house edge of Football Rules is 2.94% and should be valid at all Playtech casinos.
Poster 'thelawnet' from the CasinoMeister and Wizard of Vegas message boards has looked at these figures for the Dollar Ball and believes there to be an error. By their calculations given the seed level (10000 coins) and contribution rate (10%) the figures should be 36.43% at the point where the Jackpot is reset and the average house edge across all Jackpot values would be 26.43%. The house edge at any given point is dependent on the Jackpot size with a larger jackpot resulting in a smaller house edge.
Get on the pitch and play your balls off.

The ‘Foam Finger Fan’ symbol is wild.
There are two bonus features when playing Football Rules. The first bonus feature is activated when you receive the ‘Trophy’ symbol on both reels 1 and 5. When this happens you will be taken to a new screen showing 6 footballs. Select your favourite football to win a random number of complimentary spins. Then you are taken to the penalty spot to take a shot. Select where to kick the ball to be awarded a random multiplier for your complimentary spins.
The second bonus feature is the Dollar Ball feature. You activate this feature by click the Dollar Ball logo at the top right of the reels. When you activate this feature you select five numbers from the numbers 1-49. When you spin the reels some symbols come out with numbers attached. The more numbers that match the numbers you picked the more you win. The house edge of this side game/bonus feature is 27.59% - there is no other description for this other than suicidal.
If it wasn’t for a fantastically low house edge, Football Rules would be nothing special. As it is, there are very few slots games that offer this value for money! As always, avoid the Dollar Ball bonus feature like the plague.
