Shoot is an online slots game by Microgaming that takes as its theme the glories of football, as seen through the pages of the sports publication of the same name.
This video slot features five reels, 50 paylines, wild and scatter symbols, bonus games, and a free spins round. Given that the footie magazine on which the game is based was launched in 1969 and grew in popularity over the following two decades, the game has a decidedly 1970s look and feel.
It also boasts not only trading card-style images of legendary players, but iconic images associated with the game during that era.
Easily Navigable Interface
The easy-to-navigate interface makes Shoot online slots simple to play.
The control panel allows players to select the number of lines on which they want to play, and they will be able to set the value of their coins as well. Players will also be able to set the number of coins to bet per spin.
The Spin button gets the reels spinning, while the Bet Max button activates all paylines and places the maximum bet. The Autoplay button is the one players will use if they want to set the game to play itself for a number of spins.
Shoot Reel Symbols
The reel symbols in Shoot online slots include football giants such as George Best, Franz Beckenbauer, Johann Cruyff, Kevin Keegan, Diego Maradona, and Pele, as well as a football rattle, and a meat pie.
The reel symbols also include a scatter that features the word Bonus, and a game logo wild symbol.
These symbols, with the exception of the scatter, need to appear from left to right, in consecutive order, to form winning combinations.
Trade ‘Em Bonus Feature
When three, four, or five of the Bonus symbols appear on the Shoot online slots reels, the Trade ‘Em bonus feature will be activated.
Players will be presented with 12 trading cards, of which players much select four. This could result in prizes or what are termed Second Level Bonuses.
One of the cards selected may send players through to the Magazine bonus game, while another may take them to the Free Spins round.
Shoot Free Spins
If players select the Free Spins card during the Trade ‘Em bonus game, they will be taken to the Shoot online slots free spins round. The number of free spins players can enjoy during this round is determined by a random spinner. Players could receive between 10 and 35 free spins.
The round will begin as soon as players select the Spin button. During this round, the other controls will be disabled. Once this round has been completed, players will either be returned to the Trade ‘Em bonus game, or to the base game.
Magazine Bonus Game
In the Magazine bonus game, players will be presented with 12 classic covers from the magazine’s back issues. Players keep selecting covers for prizes until they have uncovered two red cards.
At the completion of this game, they will be returned to the Trade ‘Em bonus game, if they still have cards to select. If not, they will be returned to the base game.
