Football Frenzy Video Slot Review
Fans of the beautiful game with a penchant for gambling are in for a treat with Realtime Gaming’s Football Frenzy video slot.
Football Frenzy is a 5 reel, 50 payline online slot that combines pristine graphics and great sound effects with superb bonus features and many opportunities to win large cash prizes.
When you play this slot machine you can look forward to stacked wilds, scatters, many free spins, multipliers and a great penalty shootout second screen bonus game. Additionally, Football Frenzy boasts two progressive jackpots – a major and a minor progressive jackpot, which are randomly triggered during the base game.
Unlike most other online slots, Football Frenzy offers you two modes of play: striker and lucky mode. Each of these modes offers its own benefits and involves different bonus features. If you choose the striker mode, you can receive up to 100 free spins during the bonus game and all the wins you receive from these free spins will be tripled!
On the other hand, the lucky mode makes play in the base game more exciting, as any spin can trigger the free kick feature, which regularly awards 8 free spins. But if you choose the lucky mode you will not receive multipliers during the free spins round, so think carefully before you decide on a mode of play.
The video slot’s design is intuitive and user-friendly. On the reels you find all the images traditionally associated with football fandom: pints of beer, crazed supporters, strikers, goalies, supporter scarves, trophies, referees, sneakers and, of course, footballs. Some of these images, such as the goalie, refs and strikers, come to life when they form part of winning combinations and these short video clips really add to the slot’s appeal.
The striker is the wild – a symbol that substitutes for all other symbols, except the scatter – and appears stacked on reels 1 and 5. All wild wins are doubled and during the bonus free spins the striker also appears on the third reel.
To trigger the highly rewarding free spins round, you need to land 3 or more scatters on the reels; 3 scatters award 8 free spins, 4 scatters award between 10 and 20 free spins, and if 5 scatters activate the bonus round you could receive up to 100 free spins.
When you have unlocked the free spins round you stand a chance of activating the penalty kick bonus feature. In order to do so, the bonus footballs need to appear on all 5 reels. Once this occurs, you are transported to a penalty shootout, where you need to score as many goals as possible. Each goal you score awards an additional multiplier and up to 100x multiplier is up for grabs.
During the penalty kick bonus the golden ball also comes into play: land a goal with the golden ball and receive another 3x multiplier.
Football Frenzy offers a number of betting options to accommodate a range of players with different betting styles. 15 coin sizes are available, starting from as little as 0.01 and ranging up to 5.00.
There is also an auto bet option, which you can use if you want to programme a number of automated spins. As mentioned above, Football Frenzy includes two progressive jackpots, the sizes of which are notably displayed above the reels.
If you are looking for video slots to play on your smartphone or tablet while you watch your favourite games, Football Frenzy is sure to provide hours of entertainment and rich rewards.
