Two Exciting Football Themed Slots For Indian Players
The football world is buzzing with activity as Euro 2020 is currently underway. This premier football tournament is taking place from June 11 to July 11 across 11 cities in Europe and will see 51 games take place. Gaming developers are taking advantage of the football fever sweeping the world and are releasing many football-themed slots.
Indian football fans should check out these two new exciting football-themed slots. The first is called Maradona Hyperways from GameArt, and the second is titled Hot Soccer from Amatic Industries.
Diego Maradona is among the top three greatest players to have ever graced the game. Unfortunately, the Argentinian legend passed away in November 2020, and it is very fitting to see a gaming developer make a game and dedicate it to Maradona. GameArt has done just this with their latest offering Maradona Hyperways.
The game looks to be a fun experience, with players being taken to a soccer field to experience the highs of Maradona’s legendary career. When players start this game up, they are presented with a five x four grid. It is a bit larger than normal and provides players with a maximum of 60,466,176 ways to win. Unfortunately, this game has a maximum cash jackpot of $180, which might be a bit disappointing to football fans as they generally like to bet big.
This slot also has a limited betting range. Players can only bet from $0.40 up to $40, which is much lower than the average and can discourage high rollers from spinning the reels on this slot. The fact that the game has a high RTP of 96.3 percent can balance that out.
As for symbols, players will be hoping to score one of five Maradona symbols and various thematic icons related to soccer. We must congratulate the developer here as they have done a great job with the graphics.
The game does have a few special features that make the gameplay interesting. First, there are the Cascading Reels. Players who get a winning combination will see the combination removed, and more symbols fall from above. If another winning combo wins, the cascade will continue. Every win increases a win multiplier and even more paylines.
Players will also be able to activate the Scoreboard feature. Above the reels, there is a scoreboard that keeps track of all the multipliers and paylines. Players can get multipliers by landing scatters on the reels. They can also get free spins. For example, when four scatters land, players will get free spins to try and score a fifth scatter. If it happens, players get eight free spins. Do note that players can make use of the Buy feature to increase the RTP to 97.7 percent.
Amatic Industries launched their football-themed slot Hot Soccer, which takes players to the field and gives them a chance to score big. The game is pretty barebones and is not as appealing as Maradona Hyperways.
Players are presented with a grid of five reels and four rows. The game has 40 paylines to score on, and players get a shot at an impressive jackpot of $26,000. That is a pretty impressive amount and is one reason why players might excuse the barebones theme to get a crack at the jackpot.
Amatic appears to have designed Hot Soccer to target low-stakes players as the betting range is very limited. The minimum bet is $0.10, while the max bet is restricted to $26. This will definitely deter mid-stakes and high-stakes players but will appeal to players with a limited bankroll.
As for the symbols, the game uses thematic symbols only. This includes soccer shoes, cards, whistles, gloves, and more. There are also two special symbols. One is the Wild which is available on all the reels. There is also the scatter symbol which is the Golden Cup.
If you like playing slots that are loaded with special features, you will find Hot Soccer disappointing. The most exciting symbols here is the Wild which can act as any regular symbol during any spin. There is also a chance that the Wild comes out fully or partially stacked. As for the Scatter, it is to be the most rewarding symbol in the game. Players will only reach the maximum cash jackpot if they score the scatter on all the reels.
Overall, we found Hot Soccer is definitely worth a few spins. While it doesn’t have the exciting bonuses of other games, it still provides you with a good experience. Players who want a simple game with no bells and whistles should try this game out. So go ahead and give both Hot Soccer and Maradona Hyperways a few spins and see which slot you like the best.
