The first leg of the semi finals of the UEFA Champions League is now over. Barcelona tied zero all with Chelsea. Manchester United beat Arsenal with a single goal scored by John O’Shea. The second leg will be held on the 5th and 6th of May. Till then pass the time playing this wonderful football themed online slot from Cryptologic, aptly named Free Kick.

Free Kick evokes the magic of football. The reels are set in a stadium. The symbols on the reels are the essential components of a football game. They include the Referee, the Whistle, the Red Card, the Yellow Card, the Football, the Player, the Goalkeeper, the Football Shirt, the Football Boots, the VIP Ticket and the Fan. The Football is the wild symbol. It appears only on reels 2, 3 and 4 and substitutes all other symbols except the Red Card and the Yellow Card. The Football starts rotating when it substitutes in a winning combination. Free Kick has two scatter symbols, which are the Red Card and the Yellow Card. Two or more of the scatter symbols of the same kind result in scatter payouts. The scatter symbols also trigger the bonus game on the second screen in which players get free kicks at the goal. Three or more Yellow Card symbols offer five free kicks, whereas three or more Red Card symbols offer eight free kicks. This bonus game takes players through the trials and tribulations of a penalty shoot out. The more the goals scored, the greater is the payout. A payout of three times the triggering bet is awarded in the Yellow Card free kick and a payout of five times the triggering bet in the Red Card free kick.

Free Kick is a 5 reel 9 payline online slot game with 28 winning combinations. The coin denomination range is wide varying from as low as $0.10 to as high as $5.00. This makes Free Kick an ideal slot game for both low rollers and high rollers. Player can wager only one coin per payline. This leads to a maximum line bet of $5 and a maximum total bet of $45. Free Kick does not have a progressive jackpot, but getting five Player symbols in an enabled payline pays out 5,000 coins. At maximum bet this payout yields $25,000.The slightly older football fans will see in the Player the likeness of Michel Platini, the former captain of France, who dominated the football arena in the 1980s. Five Red Card symbols anywhere on the reels have a payout of 200 times the total bet. At maximum bet this yields a payout of $9,000.
