Subbuteo is one of the slot games that Betdigital has worked on in the last few years, a football themed game that they’ve released in 2018. It’s the type of game where you get to pick a side and then go with it, relying on its graphics to make it feel like your home team.
You will encounter a common setup in Subbuteo, a slot which has 5 reels and relies on 20 active lines to potentially bring it winning combinations. Top prizes of 1,250x the stake are promised, and as major features the slot delivers free spins, re-spins, several random bonuses and wilds. What’s less exciting, is the 95.40% RTP, a below average offer, though that’s for the Super Sub option, while the regular side gets 96%.
Betting and Prizes
The 20 lines which are active need to be fully covered, and you select the wager accordingly. The smallest bet, of $0.20, sends only $0.01 to each of its 20 lines. The highest one possible, of $200 per spin, will send $10 to each line.
You will have your chance at decent wins in Subbuteo, where up to 1,250x can be paid in a single free spin. The Super Sub option can do even better, offering up to 250x on each line, and potentially 5,000x total.
You should also know that the game’s risk/volatility is considered to be Medium, so there are decent rewards to go with the extra risk, at least compared with what you’d get in a regular slot. RTP is good usually, at 96%, but for the Super Sub option it goes down, to 95.40%.
Subbuteo Slot Features
Crowd Wilds are among the symbols you find on the reels, useful as substitutes and helping you in the long run with your wins. It’s a common feature, but one that still has a big impact on the slots where it’s implemented.
Three different random bonuses can kick in, while you’re going through the paid spins.
Manager of the Month allows the player to select a manager, which then gives you additional players, so that you get closer to filling the line-up and triggering free spins.
Extra Player will give you a prize, along with an extra player.
New Contract will offer you only a prize, but that’s still good.
As you play this slot, you get to collect players and fill up the ranks of your team. Get 11 players, to trigger the slot’s free spins.
Each of the slot’s 18 free games will have the equivalent of 5 minutes in a football match. Each round has a different random event that triggers, ranging from Free Kicks, to Penalties, Goals, Action Replays, Substitutions and Red Cards. Extra free spins and penalty shoot outs are offered, if you’re tied at the end of the match.
Theme & Design
You get a football inspired slot machine, and it looks like it could be interesting for a player that’s into this sport, and likes to play games which are inspired by it. There is the usual collection of football inspired objects (trophies, players, whistles, footballs, boots and the Royals. The quality is not that great, it looks like a dated slot machine, and we know that Betdigital is capable of better.
Subbuteo offers a theme that could be fun for a lot of players, it has the right mix of interesting features, but I’m not a fan of its dated graphics.
