IGT’s Sensible Soccer Online Slot Game
Early in the 90’s Codemasters created a video game called Sensible Soccer which became popular amongst players. It has since been created into an online slot game which was released by IGT. The online slot version of the early 90’s video game features graphics that may look outdated by today’s standard but pays tribute to the game by featuring images reminiscent of the time.
The Sensible Soccer online slot features a five reel and three row grid with twenty five pay lines that are fixed and all played throughout game play. There are two bonus games, a fixed 5 000 coin jackpot as well as a progressive jackpot. The online slot game comes with the option to buy the bonus game as opposed to simply waiting for it to be triggered by landing the right symbol combination. It does however cost 30x more than the usual bet amount which starts at a value of 0.25.
Sensible Soccer has three wild symbols represented by the referee, the goal keeper and the spectator. These substitute all other symbols except the Euro Cup bonus symbol and the football scatter symbol. Regular symbols on the reels include the Sensible Soccer online slot logo, the stadium, the referee’s whistle and the ten to ace playing card icons.
The Main Euro Cup Bonus Game
Without buying the Sensible Soccer bonus game three Euro Cup symbols will need to appear on reels one, three and five at the same time in order to trigger it. A two legged soccer game is then played but first one of the teams will need to be selected to represent the player. Each team has its own multiplier and the weaker the team is, the bigger the multiplier amount is. The team needs to get further in the soccer game to reward higher multipliers.
It is during this bonus feature that the progressive jackpot can be won. In order to win the progressive jackpot a score of ten goals or more needs to be accumulated in only one of the legs. Any penalty shootout does not apply this score.
The Free Spins Bonus Game Options
A minimum of three football symbols which represent the scatter symbols must appear on the screen to play the Sensible Soccer free spins bonus game. There are three options of which one must be chosen, each offering a different number of free spins and a unique wild feature.
Opting for the banker feature means an amount of fifteen free spins are given with the banker wild feature. This means he may appear on the second reel and turn at least one other reel entirely wild.
The fanatic feature consists of being given ten free spins with the fanatic wild symbol appearing on reel three. If the fanatic wild appears on reel three he turns all adjacent symbols into wilds.
The wobbler feature is the third option which gives twenty free spins. This option also features the wobbler wild symbol on the fourth reel which when appearing turns any random symbols on the reels wild.
