Inspired by Football

The following article isn’t about Tottenham, neither about football itself – what I will write about instead is a slot machine inspired by football. A new one, inspired by the game and paying a tribute to it, and to the World Cup that’s going to happen this year.

The game itself is a slot machine – one that you can play online. It’s called Football Star, and it was developed by the Isle of Man based company Microgaming, a long time supplier of high quality games for the iGaming industry with a history of two decades.

Football Star is not their first football-themed game – Shoot!, for example, is another football-themed game released by the company, paying tribute to Britain’s Shoot! magazine, the game’s history and its greatest players: Pele, Maradona, Best, Beckenbauer and others. The new game is not as specific about the players or teams it wants to pay tribute to – it is about the game in general.

Football Star – to be a little more specific about the game – is a five reel slot machine with 243 ways to win. It doesn’t have a progressive jackpot attached to it, but players can win a maximum of 5,000 coins with a lucky spin. That’s quite something, too.

As I mentioned above, Football Star is all about the game. All its symbols are inspired by football – players, goalkeepers, referees, balls and shoes everywhere.

So why is this game interesting? Well, for one, it rides the hype around the FIFA World Cup, that will start in June in Brazil. It has the potential to either get football fans in the mood, or make football more interesting for players knowing less about it.

Football Star has been launched simultaneously for a variety of platforms: Flash, HTML5 and Quickfire, meaning that players using any version of the software, either on desktop PCs and mobile devices, will have access to it at the same time.

Would you want to try this great game? It’s easy: find a casino featuring Microgaming’s games – register an account and start playing. I’m sure the game will have a few moments, if not hours, of fun in store for any player, no matter if he is a football fan or nor.

Microgaming is an iGaming software developer company based in the Isle of Man. It has been active since 1994, when the first fully functional online casinos were launched. Since then it has expanded into one of the most important developers of the industry, active on all platforms available for users from all over the world.
