Can you score a golden goal and end up with the 3,200x your win of this Football Star Deluxe slot game? Let’s find out.
What is it about Football-themed slots that always lack that excitement of being at a real game? If Scudamore’s Super Stakes slot can make you feel like you are at the races, why can’t Football Frenzy or the Super Striker slot game?
This Football Star Deluxe slot suffers from the same syndrome: it’s pretty enough, but it’s a little flat and generic. You have football boots, some figures in football shirts, a champions cup, and the slot logo.
But that slot logo is the one to watch, as it comes super-stacked across three reels, giving you a wonderful sense of anticipation as it lands on 5×5 grid full of symbols.
On every win, the symbols will explode and more will come tumbling down from above, giving you multiple wins in a row. Microgaming call it Rolling Reels, but most of us know it as avalanching wins or tumbling reels.
Which actually technically makes this a grid slot review rather than a standard video slot, but you won’t find as many bonuses and features as some of the other’s you’ve come across.
in the base game, sometimes a football will strikeout and give you a whole load of wilds on the screen. But better yet, if you get that stacked wild landing fully on the reel, it will stay sticky on screen for as long as the avalanche continues.
It never continues for long. Maybe 2 or 3 wins at the most, but it’s still pretty exciting to know that wild reel will help you get those bigger wins.
You can choose to play the Football Star Deluxe slot as either 18, 38, 68, or 88 lines slot. The top amount you can win won’t change, but your chances of getting that win dramatically lowers if you don’t go for the 88 lines.
Why? Because you need as many wins as you can to get to those multipliers. Oh, we didn’t mention them? that’s because unlike other avalanching reel games (ie. the Gonzo’s Quest slot) the multipliers are only present in the free spin bonus.
But one win starts at a 2x multiplier, and you can have up to 8x multiplier… on the 5th win. Getting 5 wins in one avalanche is harder than getting a perfect Fantasy Football team.
Once again, the wilds are the stars of the show, as they increase in stack by 1 on every single of your 12 free spins, adding to the chance that you’ll catch multiple wild reels and multiple wins in a row.
All in all, not a bad Microgaming slot by Stormcraft Gaming.

Super Stacked Wilds: Wilds appear on reels 3, 4 and 5 in the base game and come super-stacked, meaning they can cover the whole reel and more.
Rolling Reels: Also called avalanching wins, the rolling reels can award multiple consecutive wins. Every win explodes and more symbol tumble from above.
Striking Wild: The football players can randomly strike at the reels, turning 2, 3 or 4 wilds for a guaranteed win. The reel will stay wild for all subsequent avalanching wins.
Free Spins and Multiplier: 3 or more scatters (the champions cup) trigger 12 free spins. During the bonus game, you get growing wilds, meaning that the super-stacked symbols (this time on reels 2 to 5) each wild stack will grow by 1 on every spin.
On every win, you also get a multiplier, and on every avalanching win that multiplier increases.
Football Star Deluxe is a 5x5 grid slot with avalanching reels, super-stacked wilds and your choice of 18 to 88 paylines, set against a fairly standard Football theme.
It does have some shining goals: the free spins with those increasing multipliers and super stacked wilds can bring in some real fist-pumping wins.
As a follow up the Football Star slot though, it is an improvement, mostly because the base game is a lot more fun, you get bigger wins, and you have those avalanching wins to keep you company.
It's just a shame about the theme and the fact the pace can feel a little slow.
