The Football slots game can be found at casinos offering Endorphina software. Endorphina are one of the newer casino software providers on the market but they have managed to gain distribution with some of the largest casino networks currently active within the market. As a standard Endorphina do publish the RTP/House Edge information for their slots games within the game help file or paytables. As a software provider not licensed in the UK, and as such not required to publish this information, this is a significantly player friendly practice. As such we can state that the Football is 4.00%.
Football is a 5 reel slots game and each reel is 3 symbols high. The game uses 21 paylines and you can bet up to 10 coins per payline.
Wild – The “Joker” is the Wild symbol, replacing all symbols other than Scatters.
Scatter – The “Red Card” and “Yellow Card” symbols are Scatters. If you can land one “Red Card” symbol on each of the reels you will win 420 coins. If you can land one “Yellow Card” on each of the reels you will win 210 coins.
Bonus – The “Whistle” symbol is used to trigger the game’s Free Spin feature.
Take Risk – Whilst you might not necessarily class this as a bonus feature, it does play a significant role in the gaming experience. With every win you get the chance to try and double your win by trying your luck in a game of “Play Your Cards Right” with the game’s dealer. If you can flip over a card that is higher than the one the dealer is showing you will double your win. Flip a card that is lower than the dealer’s and you lose the lot. This round continues until you either choose to stop gambling or you lose out to the dealer. In the result of a tie, no one wins.
Free Spins – You will trigger the game’s Free Spin feature by landing at least 3 of the “Whistle” symbols anywhere on the reels. 3 “Whistle symbols will give you 15 free spins, 4 will give you 30 and 5 “Whistle” symbols will give you 45 free spins. All wins during the Free Spin feature are multiplied by 3.
Football takes the beautiful game, adds a splash of colour and personifies the games’ most memorable objects to give you Endorphina’s first venture into the sporting world. Whilst the symbols have been given little faces, they still lack any real personality and as such the game has no narrative to speak of. Now, no narrative is nothing to worry too much about if the gameplay and overall design of a slots game has been given plenty of care and attention. Alas! Football has none of those things. The bonuses are very average and the design is simple to the point of dull. The bright colours are important though, because without them this game would be seriously drab. The house edge is the usual 4% that Endorphina tend to go with, and as such there are games out there offering more value for money, along with more entertainment.
