Although the 2020 UEFA European Football Championship may have been postponed to 2021, that hasn’t stopped Gamomat from jumping the gun with its June 2020 release of Football Super Spins. The slot combines a ‘Striker’ wild, up to 25 free spins and gamble feature, with a thrilling maximum payout of 2,000x bet.
The Greatest Game on Earth
Undoubtedly, European football is the most popular game on the planet so capturing the intensity of the sport in this 5×4 (reels/rows) and 10, 20 or 30 variable paylines slot is no easy task. Gamomat’s attempt is admirable with a background illustration of a vast open-air stadium where tens of thousands of fans roar with adoration.
The highest-paying symbol is a football coach, unique in so far as he is the only symbol that will create a winning payline with as little as 2 symbols. Next, there is a trophy, goalie gloves, shoes and a football. At the lowest-paying end sit 4 royal flush poker symbols: K, Q, J and A.
In football, the role of a striker is to score goals, however here its purpose is as a substitute for all symbols except scatters. It can form exclusive payouts equivalent to the top-paying coach symbol in groups of 3+ on a payline. Rather unfortunately, however, this special symbol only appears during the free games feature.
Free Games + Bonus Symbols
Acting as a scatter symbol, the special ‘fan block’ appearing in groups of 3, 4 or 5 is your ticket into the free games with 10, 15 or 25 rounds respectively. For this feature, the football symbol is now a bonus symbol, and when combined with any visible striker rewards cash of 5x bet or 50x in the case of a ‘penalty kick’ marked football. The fun doesn’t necessarily stop with the initial number of free spins as it is possible to retrigger more – although difficult!
Gamble Feature: Ladder or Red/Black
Unlock the optional gamble feature after a win during the main game and at the end of the free spins. Decide to collect your winnings, or play either the ladder or red/black card gamble features for the chance to double your winnings.
Football Super Spins: Slot Summary
Football Super Spins slot is a medium volatility game with an RTP of 96.09, and bets ranging from 0.10 – 150.
The free games represent the best chance for larger payouts, and we found that triggering the feature was not as difficult as we expected. The addition of the striker wild along with the bonus football symbols can result in significantly bigger wins – although it can be hit or miss!
Outside of free spins, we missed not having wilds as we found cracking even 20x bet hard to do. If you want to bump up your winnings, then you do have the gamble option.
The maximum 2,000x bet payout suits the medium volatility of this game. Although it felt a tad light on features, it may find a place in the hearts of football enthusiasts looking to avoid high volatility.
