First seen in 2014, Playtech’s Football Rules remains a popular sport-themed online slot at many casinos. Simple to play and good looking, the graphics are neat and uncluttered and the game play itself offers a variety of football related options. The soundtrack is decent and with low minimum and maximum wagers this is a game that will appeal to casual players.
Although the maximum payout is just 1000x the stake we think that’s fine for a game such as this. For more serious players there is the option of playing for the Progressive Jackpot which could be anything as it grows with every game. The backdrop of a plain green football field brings out the symbols nicely, making play easier still.

The game is not over-featured but those that are present are good. The high paying symbol in the basic game is the Goal Keeper who is worth 1000x for 5 in a row. Various players have lower values, while the big ones include the wild which is the Soccer Fan, this replacing all other symbols and opening a chance for higher winnings. Five in a row during the wild play means 10,000x the stake.
Also a high payer is the scatter symbol, the Stadium, which provides a multiplier and adds to the win. This simple take on scatter is a welcome one in an easy to play game. We’re not sure of the volatility of Football Rules but reckon it to be in the mid-range. We can say that, at 97.1%, this game offers one of the best RTP ratings we know of.
How to Play Football Rules
Football Rules is a five-reel, three-row layout that is familiar to all players, and the symbols we have described above fall in various online pokies to enable bonuses or jackpot payments. The Stadium and Soccer Fan are the main players in this game and represent the bonus games.
