When the game screen loads, you find yourself in the stand of an enormous American Football stadium which is packed with cheering spectators and lit up by powerful floodlights.

Before you can begin to play 1st Down, you must choose which of eight teams you wish to play with. You can pick from the Stormers, the Comets, the Bobcats, the Cyclones, the Sabres, the Diablos, the Hawks or the Stags, and each one changes the colour of the backdrop as well as the team logo and the colour of the kit used for the paytable symbols.

You have the chance to score prizes by creating winning combinations from left-to-right using American Football themed symbols such as the football, the team logo, football players, and helmets, plus the four low-value playing card symbols.

Between spins, you can change your preferred team and bet size while the settings menu lets you view the rules, paytable, and game history, configure the slot for left-hand play, enable Turbo Mode, and turn the sounds on and off.

Wild Symbol:

The football trophy with the word "WILD" written across it is the wild symbol in 1st Down, and it can land on Reels 2, 3, and 4 only. The wild can replace any symbols apart from the scatter to help create a win.
