Online slots developers have released a number of football-themed slots to take advantage of the unrivaled excitement leading up to the 2014 World Cup that is set to kick off in Brazil today.
Renowned developer Playtech has set the standard by releasing a football slot with a distinct Brazilian vibe called Football Carnival. The 5 reel, 50 pay-line slot gives players the chance to win 10 free spins along with up to 6x multipliers and extra Wilds.
This latest slot release will join another football-themed slot in Playtech’s online slots portfolio that comes in the form of the nostalgia-evoking Top Trumps Football Legends slot. That slot is a 5 reel, 15 pay-line includes some of the top football legends from years gone by including Johan Cruyff, Pele, George Best, Michel Platini and Franz Beckenbauer plus many more.
Experienced slot developer Microgaming is also determined to not let the World Cup celebrations pass them by. They have also jumped on the football-themed slot wagon with the release of their 5 reel, 243 ways to win slot called Football Star.
Football Star is arguably the most thrilling of the football-themed slots to hit the market. It does lack the World Cup carnival theme that Playtech’s Football Carnival possesses but the action is certainly more vigorous. Not only can players trigger at least 15 free spins but they can also activate Rolling Reels and trigger a Striking Wilds feature that offers endless fun and drama.
For those slots players that are not football fans and want to escape the carnival atmosphere of the World Cup in Brazil this summer, there is always the chance to play the new Terminator 2 slot release from Microgaming.
