Getting a video slot created around your TV brand sounds like a marketing ploy to get you to buy their TV package and it kinda is. But we don’t mind as the Sky Sports online mobile slot is actually fairly entertaining… if you bet over £/€4 in real money.
Exclusive to Sky Vegas casino, like it’s other branded game Sky Millions, Sky Sports is a mobile slot with a progressive jackpot based around their sports TV package from the mother brand ‘Sky’. So far, so uninspiring. Other than your high cards, mingled across the screen is a Formula 1 car (for their formula one channel), Ringside and Soccer AM symbols (after their TV show) and other hosts of self-branding.
So we are not a huge fan of the theme, but thank-fully, if you do enjoy all things Sky and sports related, it is very well done. The music, especially, is very good, bringing a thrill of anticipation to every spin.
The bonus features are plenty and hit hard when they come, but you’ll have to be patient to hit them, with the Sports Desk Bonus getting you a potential 500x your bet and the Premier League Darts 100x your bet. Those are figures that gets our heart racing. The Soccer Saturday bonus round is probably what will catch your eye, not just for the fun innovative way of getting you free spins – up to 200 potentially – but beware. The other bonus features are far harder hitting and you are far more likely to get anything between 10 to 30 free spins than anywhere near 200.
The Soccer Saturday does have one thing the other features don’t however. And that is the progressive jackpot hiding in it’s reels. You will have to play Sky Sports mobile slot with real money to have a chance of winning the Progressive Jackpot and bet £/$/€1 per spin. We love progressive jackpot slots, and even though this one is a little hard to get, it’s always nice to know you can get a life changing amount for as little as £1 in real money bets.
Here is the kicker with this casino slot though… the return to player rate changes considerably depending on how much you bet. And we mean considerably. Bet between £0.01 – £0.99 and the RTP is a low 90.11%. £1.00 – £3.99 give you an equally negligent 90.70%. It’s only a £4+ that the number starts to get interesting and the RTP returns to a far more generous 95.53%. So only play Sky Sports slot if you plan on betting £4 in real money bets or more.

Wild: The Sky Sports logo is the Wild symbol and replaces all symbols except the bonus symbols. If you play over £1 (or equivalent currency) the wild will also act as a multiplier, doubling all wins created by the symbol.
Soccer Saturday Free Spins Bonus: Get 3 or more Soccer Saturday bonus symbols and you'll get to play the Soccer Saturday Bonus. As fixture results come in, teams are eliminated and the player is offered an amount of free spins based on the free spins values remaining. A little like Deal or no Deal. Once you've decided to play chicken and grab the first offer available, you'll be sent to an enriched free spins reels. During free spins players can achieve either one of the other features, including the Super Six Progressive Jackpot.
Super Six Progressive Jackpot: The progressive jackpot is available in real play only. This grows as every player bets, and once it hits will go back down to it's 'seed' amount. The jackpot, that we've seen, is rarely below five figures.
This slots progressive jackpot can only be won by 5 Super Six symbols in view during the Soccer Saturday free spins bonus round, and to qualify you need to bet at least £/€1 or more.
Sports Desk Bonus: A simple pick me feature, you'll need to get 3 or more Sports Desk symbols to activate this bonus feature. Here you'll simply pick one of the TV Screens in the studio to reveal a winning multiplier that will multiply your total bet.
Premier League Darts Bonus: Get 3 or more Premier League Darts symbols and you'll activate this bonus game. Basically, this is a flashy instant win game, as a professional dart board player throws dart at the screen and showers you in multipliers. Based on the value the dart achieves, you'll get anything up to 100x your bet, but more likely 10x.
One for sports lovers and jackpot slot hunters. Sky Sports mobile slot will keep your balance fairly healthy for a while, but you'll need patience to chase those big wins and jackpots.
Don't be fooled by all the bonus features, you have to enjoy the simple spin of the reels to play this casino game for a long while as that's 80% of this slot machine.
Equally, you'll have to bet at least £/€4 in real money bets to make the most of this exclusive slot and have any chance of winning. The odds otherwise are so low, it's almost stealing - hence our three star review.
