Football – Champions Cup
Football – Champions Cup NetEnt Slot
It’s a big summer of football coming up, with both Euro 2016 and the Copa America being played out in the coming months. We’d generally expect Microgaming to currently be preparing a football game of their own, but they might just still be relying on the quality of Football Star and now the floor is open for NetEnt to have a go. They’re not exactly the most experienced developer when it comes to sports games but their native Sweden, led by Zlatan Ibrahimovic, will be present at the Euros so that’s a good enough reason for us!
The action kicks off simply enough with just twenty win lines, meaning even football fans with little experience of the reels will know exactly what they’re doing from early on. Flexibility has always been key on NetEnt slots too so players can be sure of landing some decent wins no matter their bet size as they look to land badges, boots, gloves and playing card icons. There’s a wild card marked out by a football with a golden tint and it comes around pretty often to help out with the winning combinations. There are overlay wilds in the base game too, which can randomly add between two and five wild cards to the board at any time.
One of the main bonuses on Football – Champions Cup is the free spins round and landing three trophy scatters on reels two, three and four will start off a bonus round with six free spins. These spins play out as normal but with a red and blue wild added to the board. The reds represent the player’s score and the blue that of the computer, and if you manage to defeat them by landing more then you’ll progress to the next round, complete with six more spins. There are four rounds to navigate, making for potentially 24 free games, and players will also pick up an instant win prize for finishing first, second or third in the overall tournament.
The bonus action on Football – Champions Cup is rounded off with one of the better pick a win rounds that we have lay eyes on. Land three or more bonus symbols to trigger it and you’ll be whisked off to the shootout where the objective is of course to score more than the opponent. There are five shots available and you’ll be looking to score for cash and save for multipliers. The more bonus symbols that trigger the round, the higher these multipliers can be.
While perhaps not the most immersive football slot in existence, Football – Champions Cup is a solid game that will get any sports fan through the summer. The bonus features are brilliantly implemented and can be lots of fun, not to mention profitable, to the point that it is still great to play even for free. You can do just that right here on the page, all with no registration or download required either!
