Football: Champions Cup Slot Review
The Football European Championship for 2016 has been marked in style by NetEnt with the launch of a new Football themed online slot called Football: Champions Cup Slot. This new online slot is packed with footie features including a penalty shootout and tournament style bonus game that puts you in a position to win some big cash prizes.
You start your game off by choosing your country to represent at the Euro 2016 before being brought straight to the action to start spinning.
Rows, Reels, Paylines and Coins
This is a 3 Row, 5 Reel online slots with 20 Paylines and a configurable bet level from 1-10. Coin sizes are set at a minimum value of £/€0.01 up to a maximum coin value of £/€0.50 per coin. This allows you to vary your stake per spin from £/€0.20 as a minimum bet up to a max bet of £/€100.00 per spin. The maximum possible win from a single spin is 210,350 coins meaning a jackpot value of up to £/€105,175 based on the maximum stake size.
Champions Cup Slot Bonuses
There are two main bonus features in the Champions Cup slot along with the usual bonus symbol. The slot features standard Wild symbols, Scatter symbols and of course the Bonus symbol used to trigger the main bonus game.
In addition to the standard bonus symbols this online slot also features overlay wilds which can appear at any time with between 2 and 5 overlay wilds appearing at any time. The other two main bonus features are:
- Penalty Shootout Bonus Game
- Football Tournament Free Spins
Penalty Shootout Bonus Game
Triggering the Penalty shootout game is achieved by landing 3 or more bonus symbols within the main game. Once triggered the shootout bonus consists of 5 rounds of a pick and click shootout where you click against the goalkeeper to try and score goals, you then swap and attempt to save the incoming shots. Each goal scored gives you a coin value win and each goal saved multiplies that win.
Football Tournament Free Spins
Get 3 scatter symbols anywhere on the reels during the main game and you’ll trigger the free spins bonus tournament. The Free Spins Tournament takes you through to the knockout stages of the football Championship where each free spins round acts as a separate football game. Winning the match will take you through to the next round where even more free spins are awarded. Getting through to the latter stages will trigger huge multipliers based on your bet as follows:
- Third Place = x20 Bet Multiplier
- Second Place = x100 Bet Multiplier
- First Place = x500 Bet Multiplier
NetEnt have come up with the goods yet again with an online slot that’s perfectly timed for players getting excited about the Euro 2016 football tournament. The game itself gives you the usual slick gameplay style with a pretty decent RTP% of 96.82%. Our only criticism of this game is that after about 30 minutes of playing with the sound on the background chanting can start to grind, although it sets the atmosphere nicely, we prefer the sweet sound of music to keep us entertained.
