World Cup Mania Slots
Nothing brings out the mania in fans than the World Cup. And this offering from Microgaming is sure to bring out the most rabid fan in players. The icons used in the game are easily recognizable. One can see football boots, a referee's whistle, a fog horn and a match ticket on the reels. But more discerning fans might find it strange that there are food symbols like pizza, chips, burgers, pies and beer too. The sound effects of fans cheering are enjoyable and winning combinations are heralded by sport related effects as well. The Wild symbol is accompanied by the sound of a bouncing ball and the sound of the referee's whistle means there is a scatter symbol.
