Sport is a common source of inspiration for casino games designers at least in the slots category. Football Frenzy by Real Time Gaming is the best treat for football fans that are coming from the US. Due to the rigorous regulations US players have always had a tough time finding a game that will match their taste. Fortunately, football fans finally have a game of their own. It portrays the thrill and the excitement caught on the court and on the stands among the passionate audience. Strikers, midfielders and goalkeepers are doing their best to come on top. You don’t have to go anywhere, just press that spin button and enjoy in the mesmerizing video and audio effects.
Football Frenzy is a video slot that comes with a progressive jackpot that grows with every spin. It has 5 rather fast spinning reels and 4 rows of symbols at all times. There are 15 predetermined bet amounts and it’s very easy to scroll them. In practice the coins you place can have a value of 0.01 and it can go up to 5.00. Considering that there are 50 lines activated throughout the whole time you should be really careful when you place your bets. Don’t let the cash balance be shredded by one or two super high bets. On the other hand, who knows? Maybe you’re fortunate enough and you’ll hit some spectacular prize. It’s a double edged sword.
Surprisingly, Real Time Gaming decided to keep the game as simple as possible. That being said, novice or beginner slot players will find Football Frenzy exceptionally easy to play. The two symbols you want to see most of are the Wild and the Scatter. They are probably the key to huge and frequent wins. The Striker substitutes for any other symbol except the Scatter. Whenever it’s part of a winning line the prize is doubled. Furthermore there can be whole Wild Reels that substantially increase the odds of winning.
On the other hand there’s the Scatter. It’s represented with the most iconic object a football fan knows, the Stadium. Hitting 3, 4 or 5 Scatters rewards you with 8, 10-25 and 50-100 Free Spins.
In the Base Game the player has the opportunity to switch between 2 modes: Lucky Mode and Striker Mode. If Striker Mode is activated all free games wins are tripled. If however, the Lucky Mode is activated Free Games Wins are not multiplied but the Lucky feature is enabled. 8 Free Spins are awarded to the player from the Lucky Feature. These Free Games may trigger at the end of every turn.
The Free Games come in the form of Penalties and Free Kicks. It doesn’t involve skill since the outcome is based on chance. Other surprises will come in your way during these Free Games like the Gold Bonus Ball which is awarded after 2 misses or 8 scored goals. Gold Bonus multiplies your wins.
We like how Real Time Gaming made it look simple yet there are tons of unique features under the surface. What you see is just the tip of the iceberg. Start spinning them reels to unlock them and enjoy in the penalty and free kicks. In a way Football Frenzy is not about the final destination, instead it focuses on the journey how you got there.
