The aim of the main Football Rules slot game is to spin the reels and match symbols across the played paylines.
To Play the Game:
Paylines are the pathways that matching symbols must follow across the reels to achieve Line Wins. You can view the paylines by actively pressing the Lines Button, or by loading the Paytable to view a graphic.
With the exception of Scatter Wins, all winning combinations must appear on a payline, moving left to right across the reels in an unbroken chain starting on reel 1.
Please Note: the Line Bet and Total Bet are different. The Line Bet is the amount wagered on a single payline, whereas the Total Bet is the accumulative amount wagered on all paylines. The Total Bet is the amount that will be deducted from your balance for each spin played. The value of a Line Win is calculated by multiplying the amount displayed in the Paytable by the Line Bet. The value of a Scatter win is calculated by multiplying the amount displayed in the Paytable by the Total Bet.
All the winning combinations and their values are displayed in the Paytable. Only the highest win is paid on each individual payline. Multiple wins can occur on different paylines, these are added together and paid as a Total win.
The Wild Symbol can substitute for all other symbols (except Bonus and Scatter) to help make winning combinations (Line Wins). A group of 2 or more Wild Symbols on a payline can also form their own standalone win with a separate payout. In this case it is possible that there will be coinciding wins on the same payline, the Wild Symbol combination and another where the Wild Symbols substitute for others; you will be paid for whichever is higher.
All Line Wins work left to right across the reels starting with reel 1.
The Scatter Symbol does not need to land on any payline to be considered active. If 3 or more Scatter Symbols appear anywhere on the reels – regardless of how many lines you play – you will be awarded a cash win. This is calculated by multiplying the value in the Paytable by the Total Bet.
The Bonus Symbols appear on reels 1 and 5 only. If the Bonus Symbol lands on both reels 1 and 5 you will be awarded the Football Rules! Bonus. When the Bonus is awarded:
When you play Football Rules! online slot at William Hill Casino you can also play a side bet Progressive Jackpot game called Dollar Ball. The outcome of the Dollar Ball Jackpot game is completely independent from the outcome of Football Rules slot and vice versa.
Dollar Ball is a lottery type game where the objective is to match your numbers (you must choose 5 numbered balls between 1 and 49) to the numbers drawn. If you match 5 numbers to the drawn numbers you will win the Dollar Ball Progressive Jackpot.
To Play Dollar Ball:
Please note: when you spin the reels again on Football Rules, you will be automatically entered into the Dollar Ball game again – and the entry cost deducted from your balance – unless you press the Disable button.
When you play Dollar Ball as a side bet game you are playing for a Progressive Jackpot award. Therefore certain information should be made known to you:
A Progressive Jackpot is funded by taking a small percentage of each player’s wagers. This can be done through several different games and various online casino providers. The idea is that it gets bigger and bigger until it is won by a casino player. The casino will provide a base amount – usually called a seed – this will ensure that the Progressive Jackpot is still relatively large, even if it is won twice in quick succession.
The Dollar Ball Progressive Jackpot is awarded and funded as explained in the following table:
Seed (the base money provided by the casino) = 10,000 x bet.
Contribution rate (% of each bet used to fund jackpot) = 10% of each bet.
Win Condition (what is needed to win jackpot prize) = match 5 balls.
Win requirement (eligibility requirement for the jackpot) = play the Dollar Ball game (€1).
Paytable – Opens the paytable.
Bet Per Line – Increases the line bet by a single coin.
Select Lines – Activates another payline.
Bet Max – Activates every payline with the maximum line bet, and then spins the reels.
Spin – Spins the reels.
+ and - buttons – adds or subtracts a coin.
