Go for goal in Football Hero, a feature-filled 5 reel, 20 payline slot from Core Gaming. It comes with 6 modifier bonuses as well as 5 free spins rounds complete with plenty of wild extras. You’ll also have a shot at landing a progressive jackpot prize. Play from between 20p and £100 per spin.
The design in Football Hero is pretty simple. A packed stadium is the setting. On the reels the royal values are all set within football shirts. They’re joined by whistles, goalie gloves and trophies. The top standard symbol is the Football Hero logo which pays 25 times your total stake if you land 5 on a payline. That same amount is also on offer from the wild that replaces all other symbols bar the scatter.
On any spin you could be awarded 1 of the following modifiers:
- Sticker Book - stickers are peeled off the reels as they spin to reveal extra wilds
- Subs - lower value shirt symbols transform into high value symbols
- Free Kick – a football bounces around the reels to create a trail of wilds
- Half Time - any wins are paid. The reels are then flipped to offer a second payout calculation
- Red Card - all of the lower value symbols are removed from play
- Penalty – a giant 2x2 wild symbol is added to the reels
Land 3 of the Bonus symbol on the same spin and you’ll trigger the main feature round. There are 5 different features on offer. Only 1 of them is unlocked to begin with. You can unlock the other features as you progress through the game:
- Passing Wilds feature - 10 free spins are awarded here. 3 wilds bounce across the reels on each free spin during this round.
- Home or Away feature - again 10 free spins are awarded. Nets are positioned on the middle of reels 1 and 5. Land a wild in either of these positions and you’ll score and be awarded a cash bonus or extra free spins. Before the feature, choose the Home or Away net. If a wild lands there your rewards are doubled.
- Wild Formation feature - 10 free spins are on offer here too. Any wilds that land lock in place for the rest of the round.
- 90 Minutes feature - here you’ll get a timed allocation rather than a specific number of free spins. A multiplier increases by 1 with each free spin in this round.
- Golden Goal feature - pick squares to work your way across a grid. A successful shot at the goal can deliver a ‘Big Win’. Multipliers are on offer as you go.
Once the feature has finished, you’ll get to spin the Bonus Wheel feature. Depending on where the pointer lands, you’ll unlock a feature, get a cash bonus, a replay of the last feature played, extra free spins, an extra shot at the Golden Goal or a collect.
Football Hero is part of the Core Jackpots Bonus network and offers the chance to land a progressive prize. It might not be the most beautiful slot you’ll see in terms of design but the huge variety of features in offer make Football Hero well worth a look. We landed the modifiers and the main bonus round regularly too.
The soccer-themed slot is a notoriously tricky one to do well. Core Gaming have made a pretty good attempt at it here. If you’re a fan of the beautiful game, then Football Hero is well worth a look. I would also suggest you try Yggdrasil Gaming’s Bicicleta which is highly volatile.
