It’s a little obvious that Playtech just wanted to release a pokie that timed with the 2014 FIFA World Cup, and not necessarily try and make the world’s greatest pokie. That’s ok though, because the result is a slot that shares some of the simplistic beauty of soccer itself.

Also similar to soccer in a way, Playtech is one of the world’s biggest leaders in online gaming entertainment. While again, this isn’t going to be the world’s most innovative and popular new pokie, it’s great for what it is: straightforward gameplay that can leave you with some good results. The staff we had do our review of Football Carnival especially enjoyed the app-free mobile edition.

Rating breakdown

Where Football Carnival seems to be in poor form due to its lack of features, it somewhat makes up for that with its festive atmosphere and straightforward gameplay that our Football Carnival online pokies review group really enjoyed.

Detailed review


Jackpot & Bonus Games

The largest jackpot in the base game is 3000 coins, which is won by getting five wild symbols (a green and yellow soccer ball) to show on the same spin. However, even larger real cash wins are potentially possible in the game’s only bonus, the Football Free Games feature.

Showing three or more Football Carnival scatter logos will win you 10 free spins. Your multiplier in these free rounds begins at 1x and then increases by 1 for every two spins. This means your last two free rounds come with a bet multiplier of 6x, meaning some big potential real money wins, especially if you like to bet larger.

Mobile play

Despite its somewhat weak feature selection, Football Carnival is still a great game for mobile pokie players, especially because no app is needed to play. Our Football Carnival online pokies review mobile players thought it made for a great mobile experience because of:

  • Free spins feature that is available on mobile just like it is on PC
  • No space-costly apps to download first before beginning play
  • Clear graphics and sound on all mobile smartphones and tablets
  • Simple gameplay is a perfect for on-the-go play on your commute or in a queue
  • Interface is simple to use and great for touch-screen devices

Why Football Carnival Is Worth Playing

Soccer’s global appeal is in part due to its pick-up-and-play anywhere simplicity. Playtech captured that purity well in their Football Carnival pokie, a slot that we’d recommend to all Socceroo fans looking for straightforward pokie action.
