Football or soccer. No matter what you call the sport, you cannot escape its incredible popularity. With Football Studio, Evolution seeks to bring the world of online casinos and football closer together. You can absently enjoy this casino game while watching a football match. It does not require much of your attention, but it might catch it anyways. All thanks to the gorgeous studio and engaging hosts this game offers.
Interface & Visuals
Evolution Gaming has gone all out in making sure football is everywhere in this release. The background image behind the host is designed to look like a football scoreboard. A super stylistic way of letting you track when one side is on a winning streak. The table also looks like a football field, complete with goal boxes on both sides. These are minor details, but they show how much effort the developers put into this otherwise simple game.
If you want more, though? Evolution has you covered. In the bottom left corner, players can see the results of some football matches. The game will default to displaying results from the Champion’s League. However, you can add results from the Premier League, Bundesliga, La Liga, Serie A and many others!
The betting board also looks like a football field, sharing the table’s design. It also comes with some useful features. For example, you can see how many players are wagering on the home, away and draw bets. The information is displayed as a percentage, giving you an easy idea of how many people you are playing with. Alternatively, how many people you are playing against!
How to Play
Once you finish admiring the details and chatting match predictions with the host, you may remember to place bets. Fortunately, Football Studio does not require a lot of thinking. Players are trying to predict whether the home or away hand will win the round. Of course, there is always an option for the two hands to be the same. In such a case, the result will be a draw. No worries; you can bet on that, too.
With all bets placed, the dealer will proceed to draw two cards. One card is drawn for the home field, and one is drawn for the away field. The two cards are then compared in value. Cards values are ranked from lowest to highest based on their face value. The number two is the least valuable card. Meanwhile, the Ace is the strongest card, beating out the King for the top spot.
If you correctly predicted the result of the round, you will receive the appropriate cash prize. Failing to do so means you lose the round. Either way, the next round begins immediately after rewards are paid to winning players.
Bets and Payouts
Unlike many other casino games, this game does its best to keep your options simple. You only have three bets you can play at any time. There are no side bets that you often see in baccarat. This is what makes Football Studio a social experience as much as it is a casino game. The simple gameplay loop allows you to check out the results and interact with the dealer. Evolution are even kind enough to run a news ticker with the latest football news beneath the football scores.
