Soccer Slots Slot Machines
For all the soccer fans of the world - 1x2 Gaming has designed a slot just for you.
This game is a simple game with little fan fare other than the sound effects you hear when you get a winning combination. The game has a few animations added when you win as well but the game overall isn't stellar.
The game has 3 reels with 11 pay line options which is different from most of the other games found on the 1x2 Gaming roster. It includes all of the images you'd associate with a soccer game such as the goal, jerseys, and the ref's whistle. Even with all of these great symbols the game is lacking in many other ways.
Even with the lack of many features we're used to seeing in many online slot games this game still offers you a decent atmosphere and game play so let's see just what this game has to offer.
Soccer Slots Slot Machines Overview
Soccer slots have a background that makes you feel like you're on the sidelines of a soccer match. The soccer ball is up close and personal and the grass of the field is surrounding the reels and the selector buttons at the bottom of the game.
The reels are framed in green and the backdrop for the symbols is similar to that of a net on a soccer goal. The pay lines are displayed as jersey numbers on a mixture of different color jerseys.
The music for this game was a little surprising to us when we first turned the game on. We were expecting something a little more sports oriented but instead you get an upbeat mix of electronic keyboard and drums beats.
You do get the sports theme sound effects when you spin the reels. Each time you spin you hear the crowd start to get loud and when you get a winning combination they go wild. This is the type of sound we were expecting and it really works well with the game theme.
The animations found in Soccer Slots are few and far between. Since there isn't any bonus rounds to add to the number of animations the most you see is in when you get a winning combination.
When you get a winning combination, the symbols that complete the combination have the backgrounds light up as red, blue, or green. That's as good as it gets with this game as far as animations go.
Soccer Slots Pay Table and Graphics
Soccer Slots brings back the symbols that have long been associated with slot machines: This game doesn't have any special feature symbols and since this game is only a three reel game some of the symbols only have one chance for a payout.
The golden trophy is the highest paying symbol in the game. This symbol only pays out if you get a combination of three on a pay line. If you do get three it pays 200 times you wager on the pay line.
The soccer ball pays 100 times when you get a combination of 3.
This symbol pays 70 times for a combination of 3.
The soccer field pays 54 times for a combination of 3.
The red flag being thrown pays 46 times for a combination of 3.
The yellow flag being thrown pays 5 times for a combination of 2, and 40 times for a combination of 3.
The whistle pays 4 times for a combination of 2, and 32 times for a combination of 3.
The red jersey pays 3 times for a combination of 2, and 24 times for a combination of 3.
The referee's jersey pays 2 times for a combination of 2, and 14 times for a combination of 3.
The symbols for this game aren't anything spectacular. They're cartoony and not well drawn but they serve the purpose of the game and you can clearly tell what the symbol is supposed to represent.
This game is a game that would be great for a beginning player. Those who play slots on a regular basis will probably find the graphics to be childish and this is what can be a turn off for most players. The game could use a little updating and some new designing to make it a more appealing game.
All of the symbols are theme oriented and represent the game of soccer well. We can't say that we have any favorites in this game but we can say at least you don't have to guess as to what a symbol is in this game like you do in some of the other games on the market.
Soccer Slots Slot Bonus Features
Probably the most disappointing part of this game is that it doesn't have any special features at all. You won't find any wilds, free spins, or bonus symbols to help you add to your winnings.
We think this was a grave oversight on the behalf of 1x2 gaming. With a theme like soccer there are so many things you could do as far as special features go. They could have had a bonus game where you had to shoot the ball into the goal, or had you be the goalie and stop the balls to win extra prizes.
This is the area that the developers really dropped the ball, so to speak. So if you're looking for a sports themed game that's full of fun and exciting special features you need to keep looking because Soccer Slots isn't that game.
You can change your coin value from $0.01 to $.50 and pick the number of pay lines you want to play on each spin. You can play anywhere from one pay line all the way up to 11 pay lines per spin. You can also choose how many coins are played each spin. Be careful how many you decide to play because the more you play the higher your bet and this decreases your balance faster than you may think.
Playing all 11 of the pay lines on each of your spins is the best way to make sure you don't miss out on the wins that are possible for this game. The pay outs on this game are less than they usually are in a regular 5 reel game because this game offers most of the symbols with pay outs only if you get three on a pay line.
With slot machines odds aren't reliable and there isn't anything you can do to figure out which line is going to hit next so if you don't play them all you might just loose out and you don't want to do that.
This game doesn't have a traditional options menu but you can still control the following through the volume control button and the settings button found in the bottom left corner of the game.
- Game speed from low to high
- Turn sounds on / off
RTP for Soccer Slots is 97.37%, which is on the higher end of the spectrum for online slot games. This is a huge plus for the game and one of the only reasons we think you should give the game a try. With such a high return rate you are more likely to get a win with this game than some of the others you may find.
If you've played other 3 reel slot machines, then you should have no trouble adjusting to this one. But just in case, here are the main rules for Soccer Slots:
- All payouts are formed from left to right, starting with the leftmost reel. The only exception is scatter payouts, which can appear anywhere on the reels.
- The highest win is paid on each pay line
- Any misuse or malfunction terminates the game.
Soccer Slots is a sports theme game that leaves a lot to be desired as far as graphics, animation, and special features go. These things are usually the best parts of many other games but this game just doesn't have much to brag about.
This game has graphics that are cartoony and childish and even though they're theme related they could have been much better. The animations are almost nonexistent and even the little bit you see is just a change in background color. As far as special features go this is where the game designers just flopped completely.
This game has such potential and the ability to have great special features and it seems like the designers just didn't want to take the time to design any. Maybe they were going for the simple and easy game and if that's the case then they did a great job. We just think that with a theme like this there's so much more they could have done.
The few things that the game does have that make it worth playing are the betting options and the return to player percentage. The betting options are on the low scale so it makes the game a lot more accessible to those players who have a smaller budget.
Along with the smaller betting amounts the game has a small number of pay lines which can help increase the amount of the prize when you do get a winning combination. Since there isn't a whole bunch of lines to play each time you spin you can bet a little bit more than you would on a game with a bunch of pay lines.
Anything you bet is divided up among the number of lines you've selected to play and remember your best bet is to always play all the lines available.
The return to player rate for this game is on the upper portion of the scale as far as online slots go. This is one reason to play the game with a higher percentage like this you're more likely to get a win the longer your play the game.
The game isn't all bad but unfortunately the bad definitely outweighs the good in this game. If you're looking for a simple easy game to get your feet wet with this is a perfect game. You won't be overwhelmed by graphics and over the top features and you get to teach yourself the basics of slots with little chance of confusion.
But if you're a seasoned player who enjoys the excitement of special features and high quality graphics this game will probably leave you wanting, so we recommend you just keep on looking.
