Football Star Deluxe Slot Review – Stormcraft Studios
In the casino industry, there are the top dog providers, which have years of experience and a long list of slot releases already. There are also smaller studios on the rise, with new creative ideas and a new vision for the industry. One studio on the rise is ‘Stormcraft Studios‘, firstly established in 2016 and based in South Africa. Stormcraft Studios exclusively create content and work closely with Microgaming exclusively. The last slot I reviewed by the studio is ‘Jungle Jim And The Lost Sphinx‘ last year, which is a fun slot sequel. Next from the studio is something interesting, this new slot is titled ‘Football Star Deluxe‘, which is available to play now across all sites.
As stated in the title this slot is all about popular sport football. The slot background is a football stadium with crowds filling all seats. However, the background is not in focus which is strange and keeps the reel set the centre of attention. Symbols various football-related objects such as football boots, football kits, stadiums and different football players. Overall, the visuals are lack lustre for the set theme.
Football Star Deluxe has a setup of 5 reels by 5 rows, this includes 18 – 88 set pay lines. This game is medium variance with a set RTP of 96.88% and max win capped at just over 3,000x. You can bet from £0.18 – £44.
Football Star Deluxe Symbols & Paytable
There are 11 symbols in total, this includes 3 low paying symbols. These are represented by football boots, football kits and stadiums. There are also 6 premium symbols, these are represented by different football players such as referees, goalies and strikers etc. In addition to these regular symbols is a trophy scatter and football star deluxe wild. The highest paying symbol is the scatter which pays 250x for 5. The highest paying regular symbol is the red premium football character premium, which pays 6x for 5 on a pay line.
Scatters do not appear in the striking wild feature. Wilds are super stacked on reels 3,4 and 5 in the base game and wilds substitute for all symbols except the scatter symbol. Rolling Reels can award multiple consecutive wins, symbols part of wins will be removed and allow new symbols to fall in place.
Football Star Deluxe Features
Football players can randomly appear in the base game and turn reels 2,3 or 4 wild for a guaranteed win. The reel will stay wild for subsequent rolls.
Central to Football Star Deluxe Slot is the ‘Free Spins‘ feature, triggered by landing 3 or more scatter symbols during one spin. This will award 12 free spins, during spins there is a multiplier trail active. The win multiplier increases with each consecutive roll in the free spins. Roll 1 = x2, Roll 2 = 3x, Roll 3 = x4, Roll 4 = 5x and Roll 5 = 8x. There are also Growing Wilds during spins, wild is super stacked on reels 2,3, 4 and 5. Each wild stack grows by 1 wild every spin.
Overall, I think this slot is very simple from the studio. Stormcraft Studios has some fantastic successful game releases, this does not seem like one of them. The game is simplified, with a max win of just over 3,000x. Be sure to try the slot for yourself and check out our exclusive casino offers.
