Football Glory slot is an August 2020 release from Yggdrasil Gaming. There are a couple of base game “pick to win” style bonuses and a free spins round. There is also a fill the meters type function which will potentially reward you well if you put the time, and money, into playing the game long enough to fill them. So, is it Accrington and Stanley or is it more Brazil 1970? See what I thought of Football Glory slot below.
Symbols and Graphics
Value for Money
Personally, I’m not a football fan so this may have influenced my enjoyment of the game. The sound effects of the crowd chanting conjured up memories of being forced to play football for the school on a Saturday morning which I hated (not that there were big crowds watching!). Anyway, the bonus game comes with some decent modifiers, i say some, most are garbage but if you get the All Stars Free Spins you’re going to bank big time. The base game Gold and Silver cups is also a nice touch and seemed to drop in quite often, though I might just have been lucky there. Grinding away to fill the meters to trigger the Superstar Free Spins Mode is also a bit of a er, grind, but can potentially be fruitful if you stick with it. Also, if you have ever played Vikings Go Berzerk then this slot is exactly the same but in a different skin.
Football Glory Slot Stats
How it Pays and Plays
5 reels and 4 rows make up a fixed 25 paylines to play on.
The RTP is a pretty average but reasonable 96.1% with a medium volatility and the max win comes in at 4,000x.
Betting ranges from 25p/cents up to a colossal $/£/€125. This should cover most people but it would also be nice to see 10 or 20p/cents bets available.
There are be game Silver and Gold cup modifiers. A free spins bonus with various modifiers which can be added to them at the start and also the fill the meter function.
Symbols and Graphics
Jacks, Queens, Kings and Aces are the lower paying symbols here. Then you move onto the 4 football stars, green, yellow, red and blue. I’m not quite sure if they are supposed to look like any specific player, probably not, as that would have been plastered all over the game to help with publicity. 5 of a kind for the top symbol, the player on the yellow background, will give you 10x.
Wild symbols substitute for all other symbols except the Scatter. They are gold and say “WILD” on them, just to make sure you know exactly what they are.
Scatter symbols are the “Free Spins” symbol.
Football glory slot is set on the background of a football stadium and you can hear the fans chanting away. It sounds like the fan chants have been taken from various British football games and helps to add a bit of atmosphere to the gameplay.
Gold and Silver Cup Modifiers
On reel 4 and 5 during the base and free spins game you can spin in a Silver cup (reel 4) or a Gold cup (reel 5). This will give you a pick to win game where you choose one of 5 balls to reveal either a monetary value or free spins. The Gold cup will dish out higher valued prizes than the silver. You’ll also find that there aren’t always free spins available. The prizes from these cups also vary from the base game to the free spins round, as follows:
Base Game Silver Cup = 50 to 1000 Coins and 7 to 21 free spins.
Base Game Gold Cup = 250 – 10,000 coins, 7 to 21 free spins and the All stars Glory Free Spins Boost (this is the one you want)
Free Spins Silver Cup = 50, 1000 coins, +2 to 4 free spins, Wild Reels, +1 to 2 Extra Wilds
Free Spins Gold Cup = +2 to 4 free spins, Wild Reels, +2 Extra Wilds
Glory Points and Superstar Mode
Under the reels you’ll see that each football player premium symbol has a meter that you can fill. You do so by forming winning combinations with his character symbol. Fill any meter to the top and it will trigger 7 free spins where that particular symbol will lock in as a sticky Wild every time they land. They have called this “Superstar Mode”, which, if your symbol shows up a lot can well be pretty super, if he doesn’t show up and for some inexplicable reason decides to go on holiday, as we well know they can do, it can be “super effing frustrating” though.
Free Spins Bonus
Get 3, 4 or 5 Scatter symbols in view to get 7, 14 or 21 free spins activated. You will also get one of the following game modifiers.
All Stars Free Spins = All premium symbols turn into sticky wilds when they land. Get this and you’re going to bank some seriously big wins.
1 Sticky Wild = One sticky wild will be randomly added on the reels.
Wild Reel = one random reel will turn wild.
Extra Spins = 1 to 3 extra spins will be added.
Extra Cups = 5 Gold and silver cups will be added to the reels, upping the chances that you land one in view.
