Best Microgaming Slots for Football Fans

Online slots are immensely popular. Gaming site operators know this and it’s important for their games developers, companies like Microgaming, to build games in a wide range of niches to attract new players. This gives existing players plenty of variety, too, so they don’t get fed up with playing the same game time and time again. If you’re looking to play on other slots by Microgaming, have ranked their best slots for anyone looking to mix things up a bit.

Football is one potential niche and Microgaming have produced several slots to attract fans of the beautiful game who are looking to make a little extra money or just pass the time. This post looks at some of the football-themed slots Microgaming has created and why fans would enjoy playing on them.


Shoot takes its inspiration from the popular football magazine of the same name. There’s something of a nostalgic feel to the game, with past international greats of the sport, including Cruyff, Maradona and Pele, featuring on the reels. You can place as little as 50p on a spin and bet up to £100 on one. It’s a 3 row 5-reeler and has 50 different paylines, giving you lots of chances to win.

The game has a 96.5% RTP and offers a non-progressive jackpot of £61,900, so you have everything to play for. You can also choose the number of paylines and the slot will display coin pays, calculating them with changes in bet selection so that you can see how much you could win when you select a bet.

Football Star

“Football Star” is Microgaming’s main game and the company released it in 2014 to coincide with the World Cup. The graphics are excellent, with the action on this colourful slot taking place amid the backdrop of a stadium full of cheering fans. It’s a 5 reeler and you’ll see symbols such as the referee, football boots, a football and players in mid-action on them.

You can start off with a minimum bet 50p and place a maximum one of £100. The combination of stacked wilds, the multiplier, the collapsing reels and free spins gives the game a medium variance. You can trigger the free spins when you land 3 or more football Scatter symbols, which gives you 15 free spins. Land 4 and you’ll receive 20. Land 5 and you’ll receive 25. During this free spins bonus round, the cascading reels feature kicks in, allowing you to create more winning combinations. With each successive win you can earn a multiplier of 10x.

Perhaps the best feature of the game is the Striking Wilds one. If you land this during the free spins bonus round, the feature turns the whole reel wild. This makes the free spins round the thing to achieve for truly satisfying wins.

All Win FC

All Win FC is a handsome game and contains all the hallmarks you’d expect of a football slot. Like “Football Stars”, the action takes place against the backdrop of a stadium of cheering fans and you’ll see symbols such as hats, footballs, flags, football shirts and a few cheering fans on the reels. It’s a modern game, simply designed, and the soundtrack and the sound effects of the crowd bring “All Win FC” to life.

In the game, you can land expanding wilds to increase your wins. If you unlock the bonus round, which you do by revealing 3 scatter symbols in one spin. If you land 3 or 4 scatter symbols, you win 2x or 20x your stake respectively. Land 5 and you’ll win a whopping 50x your stake. Revealing 3 scatter symbols gives you 15 free spins. Keep an eye out for the Wild symbol because it will re-trigger your free spins, giving you an extra 1, 3 or 5 free spins.

11 Champions™

With the Euro 2020 football championships being pushed back to 2021, Gameburger Studios and Microgaming brought out “11 Champions™” to help fill the void for football fans. It’s a 5 reeler and, in the style of classic online slots, offers 20 fixed paylines. The slot has something of a high volatility, which keeps you guessing, and, in its Jackpot Bonus Game, offers a jackpot of 5 000x the stake. The trophy is the game’s bonus symbol. If you land 3 or more on a single spin, you’ll trigger the jackpot feature.

Above the standard reels sits an action reel, consisting of shooting, passing and dribbling symbols. If you land a shooting symbol, this triggers the Blazing Wild feature, a respin in which all symbols that don’t contain a frame turn wild. The multiplier you land with the shooting symbol will multiply any wins you land.

For any football fans looking for footballing action when the players aren’t on the pitch, Microgaming’s football slots provide a welcome alternative. Fans can enjoy a little excitement and win a little money between games while they wait for their heroes to play their next fixture.
