Football is a global phenomenon and so it comes as no surprise that it's also one of the most popular themes among casino-goers. Having said that, we may be surprised that there's a lack of high-quality games with this theme. That is why each football-themed slot machine has a good chance to become a hit. The Football Rules online slot machine is no exception to the above, but we're not so sure it succeeded.
Football Rules is an online slot machine by Playtech which has been building up its fanbase since 2013. Aside from the fact that it builds on the football theme, one of its indisputable advantages lies in its simplicity. If you were to expect exceptional graphical elements, a wide range of options in bonus games, or special gameplay elements, well, you would be pretty disappointed. Football Rules has none of those. Instead, it bets on absolute simplicity.
A simple sport-themed slot machine
This is a classical 5 reel slot machine with 25 bet lines. Die-hard football fans will be happy to hear that the authors managed to place at least a bit of football symbolism everywhere they could. So, instead of boring letters or cards, here the individual images depict football jerseys, a goalkeeper, a football referee (who in fact looks like Pierluigi Collina), and of course a football. These represent the basic symbols.
Special symbols are also football-related. The wild symbol depicts a football fan, the scatter symbol is a stadium, and the bonus symbol is a soccer player with the World Cup. That being said, it's a bit sad that the Wild and Scatter symbols do not come with any bonus game. If they weren't for the "scatter" and "wild" text on them, you could easily mistake them for just normal symbols.
A lack of bonus games
The only bonus you can realistically get is free spins. These are obtained in a special minigame. But first, you need to get a Bonus symbol on the first and fifth reel. Once you manage that, you move on to the minigame. The minigame has two tasks. In the first round, you'll choose a ball and this will determine how many free spins you'll get. In the next round, your goal will be to score a penalty kick. You have six directions to choose from, and if you're successful and score, you'll be shown the multiplier that will be applied to your winnings during the free spins.
The verdict – we recommend to first try Football Rules for free before spending real money
And I guess that's all, simplicity and practicality, that's what Football Rules represents. It might be a pleasant, relaxing game for football fans. But it doesn't offer much to other players. But you should at least give it a try and make your own opinion. Just like many other free slot machines that you can try out on our website. And who knows, you may end up becoming a football fan. So that's it, the grass isn't getting any greener...
