Shoot! Slot Machine Review

Released just in time for the 2012 UEFA Champions League final between Chelsea and Bayern, Shoot is a 50 line video slot with a football theme. The game is based on the popular Shoot! football magazine that was first published in 1969 and highlights some of the best players from the 60's, 70's and 80's.

While this is the first time we have seen a slot based on the Shoot! football magazine it's not the first time we have seen a slot using this game play and features. In fact Shoot! is a clone of the very popular Gold Factory slot. It is identical in every way other than the theme so if you like Gold Factory Shoot! gives you another game to play.

Before we go too far it's worth mentioning that the pay table automatically displays the actual payout based on the amount of coins selected. This has caused some confusion as if you are playing the max 20 coins per line all of the wins on the pay table are already multiplied by 20. Keep this in mind when looking at pay table values.

On the reels you have a selection of the legends of football including Pele, Best, Maradona, Cruyff and Beckenbauer. You also have a wild Football symbols as well as a scattered Bonus symbol and a range of other football related symbols.

As usual the top pay is reserved for the five wild Shoot! logos and this comes in at 7,500 coins per coin bet or 150,000 coins if you are playing 20 coins per line. The next three highest line wins are 2,500 coins (Pele), 1,500 coins (Best) and 100 coins (Maradona). From there the pays range from 800 to 3 coins.

While there are clearly some nice wins available on the base game it's the bonus where the games biggest wins are scored To trigger the bonus you need to get three or more of the Bonus symbols anywhere on the screen. You then enter the first stage of the bonus round known as the Trade 'Em Bonus. The features are as follows,

  • Trade 'Em Bonus (Preview)
    This stage is a pick a box bonus where you get to select four out of 12 football legends. Each pick can award an instant prize, free spins or the Magazine Bonus.
  • Free Spins (Preview 1, Preview 2, Preview 3)
    If you uncover the Free Spins logo on the Trade 'Em Bonus you move to a second stage where you have a scoreboard and a button. Hit the button to reveal a random amount of free games between 10 and 35 with all wins doubled. The free spins cannot be re-triggered which is a bit of a negative.
  • Magazine Bonus (Preview 1, Preview 2)
    If you uncover the Magazine Bonus logo on the Trade 'Em stage you move to a second stage where you have a classic "Pick until stop" style bonus. Pick magazines to reveal prizes or the Red Card which ends the bonus.

The bonus can be a bit hit and miss as you can get both extra stages in the one feature or get none of the extra bonuses and just a credit prize which can be quite annoying especially if you've waited a long time to trigger the bonus stage. Still it is possible to win a trophy sized 619,000 coins during the bonus.

In the end, Shoot! should be a popular pick for football fans and non football fans alike. The fact that it is based on the very popular Gold Factory slot means that it does not really deliver anything new but it does offer some great jackpots and a high hit rate.
