Shoot! slot – Microgaming


Shoot! reviewPlay alongside football greats like Pele, Best and Maradona with Shoot! This online slot by Microgaming features several football legends from decades long past. Released in May of 2012, Shoot enjoys continued popularity today with its engaging Bonus Games, 96,5% RTP and potential to award a £61,900 non-progressive Jackpot.

Take a Trip Down Memory Lane

Shoot is a 3-row, 5-reel, 50-adjustable payline online slot. The background and symbols capture the golden days of football in a realistic way with photographs. The music alternates with the deafening cheers of excited spectators. The symbols display small scale animations on wins. In terms of overall visual quality, it’s fair to say that this online slot is excellent when compared to Microgaming slots such as Wild Orient which is rather flat. Play online from a Windows desktop or iOS/Android mobile device.

Shoot displays Balance, Bets and Wins in coins at the bottom of the slot screen. Make a Coin/Line Bet selection (1-20), choose a number of Lines to play (1-50) and a pick a Coin Value (0.01, 0.02, 0.05, 0.10) for a Cash Bet range of 1p-£100 at 32Red. This online slot auto-calculates the coin pays with changes in Bet selection and displays them in the paytable. This allows players to conveniently view potential wins when selecting a Bet.

Shoot’s slot symbols are photos of legendary players and items related to football. Special symbols include a Shoot Wild and Bonus Cards Scatter. The Shoot Wild can replace any except the Scatter. The Bonus Cards Scatter symbol is involved in activating the Bonus Games. Shoot’s 9 regular symbols, listed from highest to lowest value, include Pele, Best, Maradona, Cruyff, Beckenbaur, Keegan, a Ball, a Fist and a Meat Pie.

Shoot! Big WinGet 3+ symbols across adjacent reels, starting from reel 1, for a win. Shoot gameplay is left to right only with the exception of the Bonus Scatter symbol which can win both ways starting either from reel 1 or 5. Coin wins are auto-calculated by the game by multiplying the Coin Win by the Coins/Line. Multiple wins on differing lines count toward the Total Coin Win which is displayed in the Win box. Coin wins are converted to credits by multiplying the Coin Value by the Coin Win. For example, a win of 100 coins is actually a 1 credit win with a CV selection of 0.01 or a 10 credit win for a CV selection of 0.10.

The Bonus Cards Scatter symbol is the highest paying symbol of the slot. Get only 2+ to win. Scatter wins are calculated differently from the rest of the symbols. A coin Scatter win is multiplied by the Total Coin Bet instead of the Coins/Line Bet for a much larger pay. The Bonus Cards Scatter symbol shows a value of (50.000, 5.000, 750, 500) for a Bet selection of 250 Coins (5 Coins/Line, 50 Lines, 0.01 CV). Win up to 200x the bet per payline with this symbol. That gives the Main Game the potential to award up to 200,000 coins each spin (£20,000 win).

Special Features

Like many Microgaming slots, Shoot’s Autoplay ranges from 5-500 consecutive spins with the option to manually enter a number of spins exceeding 500. Advanced settings allow players set Autoplay to stop on its own if a win meets or exceeds a set amount.

Shoot! Bonus Features

Trade 'Em Bonus GameShoot! Trade ‘Em Bonus Game: Get 3+ Bonus Cards Scatter symbols to trigger a game involving 12 cards. Click the cards and match 4 for the chance to win a random coin bonus, activate the Magazine Bonus Game, activate the Free Spins Bonus Game, or win a Jackpot of 619,000 coins (£61,900).

Magazine Bonus Game: Once activated, players get the chance to pick from 12 magazines for the chance to win a random coin prize. Click on the magazines to reveal either a coin prize or a red card. It is possible to get multiple coin prizes, however, if a red card is picked, the Bonus Game ends immediately. There are 2 red cards out of 12, so the odds are in the player’s favor with 10 magazines holding a potential coin prize. Fortunately, if a red card ends the game before the player has found all the coin prizes, then a consolation prize of 1x the Bet is awarded for each remaining unopened magazine.

Free Spins Bonus Game: A random 2 digit number of Free Spins is revealed upon Free Spins activation. Get at least 10 or at most 35 Free Spins (not re-triggerable). The best part is, all wins are doubled!
