There’s soccer, there’s American football, and there’s Aussie Rules football. This is essentially the Australian version of football, which operates in a similar vein to both of the aforementioned sports. Two teams of eighteen participate, and it takes place on an oval-shaped field. Points are scored by players kicking the rugby-shaped ball between goal posts or between goal and “behind” posts. The former is worth six points while the latter is worth a single point. The main difference is that all parts of a player’s body can be used to move the ball around the field, yet players cannot run with the ball unless it is bounced every 16 yards, similarly to basketball. In any event, it is this sport that the Rival Gaming slot known as Aussie Rules takes its theme from.
That’s why you’ll see thematic symbols on the reels such as the referee’s whistle, the footie shoes and the player clutching the ball. Other symbols are present in the form of playing card additions from 10 through to A.
Five reels and three rows have been incorporated into the setup of this Rival slot, and the developer has also gone ahead with a set of 15 pay lines for you to bet on. You do have the opportunity to customise the active number here with the “Select Lines” button at the bottom of the reels. Furthermore, you can alter your wager by selecting a coin value between 1p and £1, before then selecting the number of coins that are in action per line between one and five, meaning that the maximum bet possibility stands at £75 per spin.
Every type of football game needs a linesman for when the ball goes out of play. In this slot game, he operates as the game’s wild symbol, and this means that wherever he shows up he will substitute for all other symbols within the Aussie Rules reels. The only exceptions to this are the scatters.
Should you manage to spin five of the wild linesman symbol into view on a winning pay line, your wager will be multiplied by 5,000x.
Aussie Rules also has a symbol of the game ball on its reels. This is the first of its scatter symbols, and it is this one that activates the game’s bonus round for you. You’ll see this occur whenever three, four or five of the ball scatter come into view anywhere.
This round allows you to take a free shot at scoring a goal with a kick through the goal posts. If you do it well enough, you’ll score a wonderful boost to your win balance.
There’s also a water bottle symbol serving as a refreshing second scatter symbol, and it needs to appear in at least three positions on the reels to activate the free spins round.
You’ll get 10 free spins for three of these scatters, 20 for four, and 100 if five of them come into view. During this feature round, any wins that you form will also be affected by a triple multiplier. The round is also able to be re-triggered during play.
Last of all, there’s the addition of an Aussie Rules player’s shirt as a symbol. It is this one that represents its jackpot addition, and this one can reward you with some wonderful boosts.
Five of them appearing across the reels in any location will multiply your bet by 500x, giving you a nice jackpot win.
While we may not specifically be a fan of Aussie Rules in general, that didn’t stop us finding this Rival Gaming slot entertaining. Not only does it have some intriguing graphics on display, but it also incorporates some exciting special features such as the free spins round, bonus feature and jackpot wins. On the whole, it makes for a great addition to this developer’s catalogue of slots.
