Shoot Slots

ShootShoot is one of the Microgaming slots, a game which is themed around football, the sport that is known in the United States as soccer. The game focuses on some of the biggest stars of the sport, and it uses real photos of these players, including names like Maradona, Cruyff or Beckenbauer. This particular sport has a lot of fans and the number of slots that use it as a theme keeps growing each year, being probably the most popular sports theme.

50 paylines are used in Shoot, a 5 reel slot. The wilds and scatters are available in the base game, but in order to reach the free spins you have to go through a different bonus feature first. You have a chance to win $20,000 if you play this game.

Features of Shoot

One major feature of Shoot is the wild symbol. Another is the scatter, and then we have free spins and multipliers obtained with the help of a bonus game.

You will find that the wild symbol is the one with the football which has various pictures of players on it. Since it’s a wild, you can of course expect it to substitute for another symbol, a scatter being the only one which doesn’t benefit from it. Wilds can also appear together on the same payline, in which case they will create a combination. The minimum number of wilds required is three, while the top payout is offered for five.

The slot’s only scatter symbol shows you two player cards and it’s marked with the word Bonus. If you happen to land at least two of these symbols, you’re going to receive a prize, whose value depends on the exact number. The prize value goes from 2x to 200x the wager.

Trade ‘Em Bonus

This is the coolest part of the game, the bonus game that brings you free spins and hidden prizes. You get it activated whenever 3, 4 or 5 Bonus symbols are scattered around.


You are taken to another screen, where you see a table with player cards spread around, from the 60s, 70s and 80s. Out of the 12 cards, you have to pick 4, in order to find out the prizes hidden underneath.


This bonus feature can give you access to one of the other two bonus games, Magazine Bonus and Free Spins.


Free Spins Bonus

Activated through the Trade Em Bonus feature, the free spins give you 10 to 35 rounds for which you don’t have to pay. All the wins offered are doubled. You can’t retrigger this feature, which is activated when you get the Free Spins symbol in the bonus game.


Magazine Bonus

Another feature which Trade Em Bonus can activate is called Magazine Bonus. This time, you are presented with a screen which has 12 magazines on it. You keep making picks until you get a red card. Two red cards are hidden among the 12 magazines, so there are 10 prizes as well. For each magazine that isn’t selected, you get a consolation prize of 1x the bet when the red card is found.


Betting options and jackpots

Very low coin denominations are available, going only up to $0.10, but you can use 20 for each line, so the line bet still goes up to $2. Since 50 lines are available, if you decide to use them all you can wager $100.

You are offered a jackpot of 10,000x, which might mean 200,000 coins, but in cash that only translates to $20,000.

Design and symbols

The theme being inspired by some of the biggest names from football history, you’re going to find player cards with the photos of these legends on them. A large stadium is visible behind the reel area, with retro looking cards and other symbols on them. The developers managed to get the right to use the images of these players here, so if you’re a fan of football you’re going to enjoy seeing all these legends in one place.


Symbols: Players Football (wild, 7,500x), Pele (2,500x), Best (1,500x), Maradona (1,000x), Cruyff (800x), Beckenbauer (500x), Keegan (250x), Football (100x), Noise Maker (90x) and Pie (80x).


Is It Worth Playing?

For a football fan, this slot machine and its inspiration, which comes from legendary players, should be a great motivator to play at least a few spins. You’re going to enjoy both the player cards and the features offered.

You will find Shoot at any online casino which chooses to use software from Microgaming, playable either for free or for real money.
