Football Star Deluxe Slot Review

Released May 2020

The Football Star Deluxe slot game can be found at Microgaming casinos. Microgaming as a standard now publish the slots house edge information of all their games at any online casino that holds a UKGC license (this is a requirement for all UKGC licensed casinos). As such we can say that the House Edge of Football Star Deluxe is 3.12%. When playing at any venue that does not hold a UKGC license and does not specifically publish the Return to Player information for their game, this information should be used as a guideline only as we cannot confirm whether or not this game is configurable.

Football Star Deluxe is a 5 reel game that is 5 symbols high. The number of paylines that you play across can be altered. The game is set at 88, but can be reduced to 18, 38 or 68 instead. The fewer the paylines the lower the bet and you will also find a reduction in the RTP. The house edge that we have given for Break Away Deluxe is based on the maximum number of 88 paylines, this will increase if you reduce the paylines.

Theme – This slot has a sporting theme and as the title suggests, that sport is football.

Special Symbols

Wild – The “Football Star Deluxe” symbol is Wild, substituting for all symbols except Scatters. Wilds come fully stacked and only appear on reels 3, 4 and 5 in the base game.

Scatters – The “Trophy” is the game’s Scatter symbol, meaning it will pay out regardless of any paylines. The “Trophy” is the most valuable symbol in the game and it will trigger the Free Spins feature if you can land 3 or more of them on a single spin. Scatters are not available during the Free Spins or the Smashing Wild feature.

Bonus Features

Rolling Reels – Each time you form a win the symbols involved will be removed and replaced with new symbols. Essentially this is a cascade or an avalanche type of feature and is present in both the base game and the Free Spins.

Striking Wilds – This is a random feature and as such can happen at any point during the base game. When it does happen a hockey player can appear on reels 2, 3 or 4, turning that reel completely Wild. Striking Wilds is only available during the base game. The reel will remain in place for any subsequent Rolling Reels wins.

Free Spins – If you can land 3 “Trophy” symbols on the reels at once then you will trigger 12 Free Spins. During the Free Spins feature a Multiplier trail operates along with the Rolling Reels feature. The first win on a Rolling Reel is worth x2 the bet, the second is worth x3 the bet, the third is worth x4 the bet, the fourth is worth x5 the bet and the fifth is worth x8 the bet.

Growing Wilds – This feature is only available during the Free Spins. During the Free Spins Wilds are stacked on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5. Each Wild Stack will grown by 1 on every spin.


Football Star Deluxe is an updated version of a Microgaming classic. The features are good, albeit pretty standard and if you look closely you’ll notice that they are identical to the features on Break Away Deluxe that came out last July. You get Free Spins, you get cascades, a multiplier in the Free Spins and a random feature, not to mention the Wilds as well. In other words, there is plenty here to keep you occupied and at least one of those features has been made with the theme firmly in mind. The work that needs to be done is on the game’s aesthetic. It feels very thrown together and when compared with most modern games, lacks some of the finesse that slots players might have become accustomed to. A big plus has to be the house edge, which is much lower than you will find in most slot games, but only if you play at the maximum number of paylines.
