Given that football season has ended in most of the world, this may seem like a strange time to be releasing new football-themed slot machines.
But with the Olympics coming up this summer, there’s at least one more football competition that the world will be tuning into, so Playtech’s decision to released Benchwarmer Football Girls now is somewhat understandable. Besides, with a name like that, you can probably guess that this game isn’t really all about the football.
About The Game
Benchwarmer Football Girls is a 30-line, five-reel slot machine that was released this past week to most Playtech-powered casino sites. Players have the option of betting as much as £10 on each line, allowing for some very large bets if you’re inclined to play for high stakes.
The object of the game is simple: match as many of the same symbol as possible from left to right across your active paylines. There should be no surprise as to what symbols will win you the most money: the titular “benchwarmers,” who are scantily-clad women who carry colored footballs. Did we mention that this game isn’t really so much about football?
Beyond the beautiful women, though, this is still a slot machine – and that means it’s all about winning money. One great way to score a big win is to hit wild symbols, this time represented by a rather standard wild logo. This symbol can substitute for any of the other prize symbols in the game, helping to create winning paylines. It can also earn prizes on its own, with five wild symbols in a row offering this game’s largest prize: 10,000 credits.
Special Bonus Rounds
There are two special bonus rounds in Benchwarmer Football Girls, and while neither is exactly revolutionary, they both add some variety to this machine’s gameplay. First, there’s a free spins round that is triggered if you hit three or more “Benchwarmer” logo scatter symbols anywhere on the reels. When this occurs, you’ll be awarded with 10 free spins. In addition, there’s a very lucrative twist: you’ll get to pick your favorite Benchwarmer Football Girl to fill the entire first reel. All of the other girls on the other reels will turn into your chosen girl, making it very easy to make plenty of high-paying winning combinations during your free spins.
There’s also a Football Bonus game that is triggered if the Bonus logo appears on both the first and last reels on the same spin. When this occurs, you’ll be taken to a second screen where you’ll be asked to pick from five footballs. You’ll be allowed to pick three of these, each of which will reveal a number of bonus credits. At the end of the game, the bonus amounts are totaled and awarded to you.
Benchwarmer Football Girls isn’t the most innovative online slot machine ever created, and if you’re a regular player of the Betsoft 3d slot games then this one certainly won’t appeal to you. On the other hand, the theme is creative, and some players will end up having just as much fun looking at the pretty girls as they do winning big prizes. You can check out Benchwarmer Football Girls today at most online casino sites that offer Playtech games.
