If you know your blitz from your bootleg then this 1st Down mobile slot will have everything you could wish for as an American Football fan.
Inspired Gaming made their name by creating amazing virtual sports games for casinos around the world, and they then went into slot machines.
This 1st Down slot game is probably a perfect blend of both, as they allow you to select your team from some of the biggest names in American football: The Cyclones, The Bobcats, The Comets.
All this does is change the colour of the symbols, a little bit like in Football Champions Cup slot. It’s a nice touch that feels personal to the gambler. So enjoy it, because this is all you get in the base game.
In many ways, the wins in the base game are nothing special. Unless you get a wild, in which case you get a 2x multiplier on the win, which is a nice touch.
That’s basically all you’ve got to do in the base game – spin, catch wilds, change your team and background from time to time.
Every once in a while you will get 5 coins with multipliers on the reels. If that happens you get to watch a real live American football game where your team will fight for touchdowns or field goals.
Get a touchdown and you get 6x the value of the coins, get a field goal and you get 3x the amount.
In other words, you get to watch a virtual reality football game. If you are a fan, it’s great fun to watch, if you are not you can skip everything and just see the results (a lot less fun).
We suspect that if you love this sport then you’ll love this 1st Down slot game. If not, then this is definitely not for you.

5 or more coins on screen in any positions trigger this bonus. You will then get the equivalent of football drives in a series of virtual sports clips. The current selected team is on offence for all drives of the 1st down bonus.
Each time your team scores a touchdown, you get 6x the sum of the values on the coin symbols that triggered the bonus.
Each time your team scores a field goal, you get 3x the sum of the values on the coin symbols awarded.
We like this 1st Down slot on mobile, mostly because it's fun to get a break between slot play and watch a virtual American football game.
It's like sports betting and playing slots at the same time! Granted, the slot part isn't as exciting as the sports betting, which is why this only gets a 3-star review.
Maybe if they'd added some sticky wins or some wild reels, it would have gotten an extra star rating.
As it stands this 1st Down slot is 5 reel, 30 payline game with wilds and multipliers where you also get to watch sports.
Interesting touch, but if you want something more complicated then the Nitro Circus slot game is probably more for you.
