Free Football Glory slot
Please be patient, some games take longer to load than others!
Football Glory slot by Yggdrasil alas seems to have emulated the cheap tacky and plain symbols and graphics that for some reason most soccer-themed slots have. Reels are set predictably over a pitch and stadium with crowd noises as we play and ball thuds as the reels stop. At least the crown noises seem authentic and taken from the UK by the sound of the chants. Football Star slot by Microgaming was possibly the best one, with Playtech weighing in with a few including Football Carnival slot which like Football Fans slot was pretty average to say the least. So can the we get a level playing field for our bankroll or will we score an own goal here?
On The Reels...
We get 5 reels of 4 rows each and 25 lines on Football Glory slot with stacked symbols. The Yellow Player is top pay at 10x bet for 5-of-a-kind, Red 8x, Blue 7x, Green 3x with four card values of 3 down to 1.6x for a full line. There is plenty to this game though all 4 players under the grid with their own meters to fill, like Vikings Go Berserk which this slot is undoubtedly copied from.
Gold and Silver Cups
These appear on the 5th. and 4th. reels respectively. Land the either to get a pick from 5 balls which will offer you:
Base Game Silver Cup - 2-40x bet or 7-21 free spins.
Base Game Gold Cup - 10-400x bet or 7-21 free spins or All Stars free spins or Glory Boost which raises the player meters 25%.
Free Spins Silver Cup - 2-40x bet or 2-4 extra spins or Wild reel or 1-2 extra Wilds.
Free Spins Gold Cup - Wild reel or 2 extra Wilds or 2-4 extra spins.
Superstar Mode Spins
You get 7 free spins if you fill any of the player Glory meters under the reels by accumulating wins involving that player. When the spins start all occurrences of that particular player become sticky Wilds.
Free Spins Mode
You need 3,4 or 5 free spin scatters for 7,14 or 21 spins respectively. You can get the Gold and Silver Cup bonuses as above plus the chance that on any spin a footballer can turn into a sticky Wild if scoring a goal. Before every free spin round a modifier is chosen randomly from:
All Stars - every player becomes a sticky Wild.
Sticky Wild - one position becomes a Wild.
Wild Reel - one reel selected as a sticky Wild reel.
+3 spins - you get 3 extra free spins.
Extra Cups - 5 more Gold and Silver Cups are added to the reels with awards as described above.
You don't get scatters during this bonus and it's quite volatile and you will notice the wins needed to fill all the meters reduce in frequency before triggering them, ahem!
Football Glory slot is pretty much a clone of an older game as I said earlier. It's hardly an improvement with tacky symbols, graphics and animations with annoying sounds. The RTP is a respectable 96.10% and I'm sure some players will like it but the base game isn't great and can drain your money fast when spins are near. The various free spins rounds can be lucrative on rare occasions and most aren't too hard to trigger and are fairly enjoyable to watch. I wouldn't quite give Football Glory slot the red card, but I think we could bring a better substitute into the game...
