Football: Champions Cup Slot Overview
In Russia, they’re kicking a ball about vigorously for the FIFA 2018 World Cup. Although there are no official tie-ins with that tournament in the slot world, there are plenty of football games to get stuck into if you want to take your support for your team into the online video slot casinos. Among the best is this effort from NetEnt, which first came out to tie in with the 2016 European Championships in France, but which is still an up-to-date and rewarding play.
Like all NetEnt games, you can expect good graphics and great gameplay with lots of extra features. So let’s take a look at the basic line up of this team.
Football: Champions Cup slot has 5 reels with 20 pay lines. It has a very generous theoretical return to player of 96.82% and is rated at medium volatility. The biggest possible win – in coins – is 210,350, delivered from bets between 0.20 coins to 100 coins per spin.
There are two bonus games – a penalty shootout and a championship feature – that add plenty of extra interest and might reveal some rewarding results!
The theme produces the sort of graphics you would expect, but as this is a NetEnt game they’re done with real quality. Big reels sit in front of a lively looking cartoon stadium, packed with fans ready for the kickoff.
The reels have a lot of symbols on! At the bottom of the league are the usual card symbols. Then there are “medium win” symbols – shields showing a ref’s whistle, goalie gloves, a football boot, a football shirt, and a running player.
Then you have the “high win” symbols. Three of the “Bonus” scatters trigger the bonus game. And three of the golden trophy scatters on reels 2, 3, and 4, kick off the free spins round.
Finally, we have the wilds: a gold football in the base game, and red and blue footballs in the free spins round that add to prizes.
Game of the century!
What of those bonus rounds?
The Penalty Shootout is a four-way gamble game set up to look like a penalty kick – I always go for the top-right corner in real life, you might want to mix things up here. You play both the kicker and the keeper in this five-round game with goals scored adding to your cash prize and kicks saved boosting your multiplier, which is bigger (the maximum is 16X) the more bonus symbols you got on your way into the game.
Free spins come from the cup and are set up like a football tournament from the last 16 round down to the final with red and blue teams battling it out with those goal-scoring, coloured wilds. Winning the whole thing is worth 500x stake, a prize that might even come close to being 100th of Lionel Messi’s weekly wage, which is to say that’s a lot of money!
If you like sports games this is one you really want to get your kit on for. NetEnts have designed the game to pick up elements both of real-life football and the video game version that so many fans love to play to produce a game that really does have some competitive magic to it. Add in great graphics and professional experience and you’ll be cheering on a winner for 90 minutes with this one.
