Football Legends! This is what the Shoot Slot is all about. If you want a shoot ’em up game, try the Judge Dredd slot as this one’s all about the Beautiful Game.
Let’s just reel off some names shall we? Special K (that’s Keegan), Pele, Best, Cruyff, Beckenbauer, Hand of God Man, and a whole bunch of other dudes with big football mullets from the 60s, 70s and 80s.
Oh and meat pies of course. We love our meat pies Down Under, I didn’t know you served them out at “soccer” matches as well.
I am presuming that the image rights to all of these players come cheaply after a certain amount of time, otherwise Microgaming- the slot designer behind this game and others like the Sweet Harvest slot– would be flat broke by now.
Back of the Net
Let’s take a look at this slot shall we. As soon as you fire it up, you know you are in a tournament from the background crowd noises. This 5 reeler is a 50 pay-line machine with coins that go from a penny up to £/$/€ 0.10.
Adjust your lines that you want to bet on from 1 to 50 and bet from 1 to 20 coins per line. If you want to bet lower amounts, we’d suggest betting 50 lines and reducing the coin size or coins per line first, but ultimately that’s your call.
Winning the Cup
To generate nice winnings in this slot, you really need to aim for the bonus round which is triggered by 3 or more Shoot! Bonus symbols. It can be tough to get in, but that’s because the pay-out can be pretty juicy once you get there. Even before you get in, the bonus scatters will pay out 3x your bet for 3, 100x your bet for 4 and a league topping 1000x your total bet for 5.
With 3 or more scatters, you are into the Shoot! Bonus- well the first one anyway- which is called the Trade ‘Em Bonus in which you’ll see 12 football cards with legends of old, some of whom will be sporting impressive hairstyles. Those were the days- Mrs Wombat still waxes lyrical about them – less tattoos, big hair and tiny shiny shorts. Pick 4 out of the 12 to reveal prizes.
Who doesn’t secretly wish they had a mop like Carlos Valderrama, the Columbian midfielder? The man’s an absolute legend and you’ll see him in the Shoot! bonus round.
There are also 2 second level bonuses to go for in the Shoot! slot bonus. These are triggered from within the Trade ‘Em Bonus by either the FREE SPINS symbol or the MAGAZINE BONUS symbol. Sorted! It’s a game of 3 bonuses!
Free Spins Bonus
The Free Spins Bonus (within the Bonus) gets you between 10 and 35 free spins. Plus all free spins wins are doubled. On the ‘ead son! The only downer is that you cannot re-trigger the free spins.
The other feature that you can set off from within the bonus (for your bonus within a bonus) is the Magazine Bonus. You’ll see 12 footie magazines. Make your picks and win the hidden prizes until the red card is shown (there are 2 of these hidden within the mags).
Watch out for the Shoot! football symbol as this is a wild symbol which will stand in for other symbols to make up wins. Get 5 of these for the biggest jackpot.
After that, it’s Pele who’ll deliver the goods for you followed by George Best and Maradona. Those meat pies we were telling you about? Well, they might taste delicious, but they are the lowest paying symbol in this slot.
This is a long way from other Microgaming slots like Untamed Bengal Tiger, but it’s a great game. It can take a while to get into the bonus round, but once you are there, this can be pretty lucrative as there are 2 additional bonuses within the bonus. Try and get into the Free Spins Bonus if you can- we prefer it to the Magazine Bonus. Or even better- land both!
