Football: Champions Cup
Football is probably the most popular sport around the world, and it should come as no surprise that slot game developers would want to surf on that wave and attract players by designing football-themed games.
Football: Champions Cup is NetEnt’s first attempt to create such a video slot game. The developers made sure that football and slot fans would enjoy a smooth experience with beautiful graphics and a real, electric atmosphere. Coupled with an innovative gameplay and interesting Bonus features, Football: Champions Cup has a lot of special cards up its sleeve that we cannot wait to present to you.
Football: Champions Cup makes use of classic elements by putting players in the middle of a gigantic stadium, with the semi-transparent reels hovering above the lawn. The seats are full and the crowd is cheering throughout the game.
In terms of immersion, this game does a great job at recreating the uniquely fun atmosphere of a football stadium. Nothing really original per se, but the sleek graphics are worth mentioning.
The Road to Victory Starts Here
Before you head to the stadium, pick your favourite team by clicking on its national flag. You have a choice between all the participating European countries, and if you would rather let luck decide, simply hit the dice to pick a country at random.
Now that the game has started, take a look at the reels. There are five of them, displaying three symbols each. Winning possibilities are everywhere on the screen, all you need to do is line up combinations of symbols to trigger a corresponding cash prize. Use the command bar at the bottom of the game screen in order to adjust your bet settings. The arrows will modify your coin value and number of activated paylines on screen. Hit the central button to validate your bet settings and start up the reels.
To maximise your chances to win big, click the Max Bet switch and go all-in on all paylines simultaneously. Taking a bigger risk can lead to larger payouts in the future. Alternatively, the Autoplay mode is there to set the game on autopilot and let the reels spin on their own until you decide to revert to the standard game mode.
Put on your Cleats and Get Ready
The reel symbols in Football: Champions Cup are, unsurprisingly, all related to the world of football.
You will therefore find plenty of Footballs, Gloves, Whistles, Shirts and other iconic elements. Each of them is worth a specific price, and the longest combinations bring the biggest wins to the lucky players.
The paytable also contains a handful of card-related symbols, from number 10 to the Ace. They appear very frequently on the reels to make up for their low payouts.
