It has been quite some time since Cryptologic has released a new game. Therefore players were expecting a large pack of games. However, only two new slots have gone live at Cryptologic online casinos and both have football themes.
Football Frenzy is in the mold of the regular slot game but has innovative features. Upfront the player has to choose a team from the eight given. The Flag symbol then becomes the flag of the selected nation. The flag also becomes the background to the other symbols like Spectators, Girl Fan and Trophy. The chosen team, designated as the Home team features in a contest with a randomly assigned Opponent team in the bonus round, which is essentially 8 free spins awarded to the player. If during the free spins the Home team flag appears on reel 1 the Home team scores a goal and if the Opponent team flag appears on reel 5 the Opponent team scores a goal. If the Shootout symbol appears on reel 3 then both teams score a goal. At the end of the free spins the player gets an additional payout of 1x the bet for each Home team goal scored. If the Home team wins this additional payout is doubled. If there is a tie at the end of 8 free spins tie breaker free spins are awarded.
Striker Fortune is an unusual slot game. The game opens to an empty football field. Here too the player chooses a team and is assigned an opposing team. When the Play button is clicked the positions in the usual 5x3 matrix are filled by players from one of the teams or the trophy symbol. There are no paylines but 99 ways to connect reels 1 and 5. A connection is made when players from the same team are aligned horizontally or one diagonal space away from reel to reel. For every such alignment a ball is passed from player to player and a goal is scored. The home team scores goals left to right and the opponent team scores goal from right to left. The payouts are made based on the margin of victory for the home team according to a payout table. If the home team loses then there is no payout. The animated players and the ball being passed make for enthralling visuals. Three trophy symbols trigger the Training Grounds Bonus Feature. Here payouts are made based on goals scored and have a multiplier of up to 3x.
Football Frenzy and Striker Fortune can be played at all Cryptologic online casinos. CasinoAdvisor recommends InterCasino and VIP Casino.
