Sensible Soccer was a highly popular video game in the early 90’s that was created by Codemasters. The title was licensed by Ash Gaming who developed it into an online slot game that pays tribute to the video game. There are five reels and twenty five fixed pay lines meaning they are not adjustable and are all in play throughout the game. Bets start from 0.25 per spin but the maximum bet is advisable as there is a progressive jackpot that can be won during the bonus feature. Apart from the progressive jackpot there is a fixed jackpot prize of 5 000 coins.
The Sensible Soccer online slot game’s graphics are reminiscent of the early video gaming years with the characters closely resembling Lego. The reels are adorned with themed icons as well as the standard playing card symbols. These include boldly coloured ten through ace icons representing the lower valued symbols. Themed symbols consist of a football; a European Cup bonus; a spectator; a goal keeper; the stadium; the online slot logo; a referee’s whistle and the referee himself. The Sensible Soccer reels are partly transparent above the background view of a full soccer stadium and the background sound effects feature cheers from the crowds.
The Euro Cup Bonus Game Feature
When a minimum of three Euro Cup bonus symbols land on the first, third and fifth reels simultaneously the Sensible Soccer bonus game is triggered. At first a soccer team needs to be selected as a representative to take part in a two legged game. The further the team gets, the bigger the rewards are. All of the teams come with varying multipliers. Weaker teams have stronger multipliers but do not progress as far into the bonus.
There is an option to skip through the tournament and receive the results instantly as well as an option to buy into the bonus game. This will cost 30x the stake and then be played at any time without having to land the triggering symbols.
The Sensible Soccer progressive jackpot is winnable during this bonus game. All that is required is to score more than ten goals during one leg of the game however penalty shootouts do not apply.
The Sensible Soccer Free Spins Feature
The football is the scatter symbol that needs to appear three, four or five times on any position on the reels to trigger the Sensible Soccer online slot free spins feature. One of three options can be selected to determine the number of free spins that will be awarded along a wild feature.
The first option is the banker where fifteen free spins are awarded with the possibility of the banker wild symbol appearing on reel two. If he does then a minimum of one reel will turn entirely wild. The second option is betting on sports teams. Here ten free spins are awarded with the possibility of the fanatic wild symbol appearing on the third reel turning adjacent positions wild. The third option is the wobbler which awards twenty free spins and the possibility of the wobbler wild symbol appearing on the fourth reel to turn any random symbols wild.
