Review of Football: Champions Cup Slot by NetEnt
Designed and engineered just in time for the UEFA European Championship that would be starting in just 3 days, Football Champions Cup definitely lives up to the hype. This is the first time all of us here at AndroidSlots have shared the same feeling of euphoria, all because of our shared love for football.
One that that really impressed us is the experience that this game delivers; every aspect of this slot feels so real, from the graphics to the penalty shootout features. Whether you are a slot enthusiast or just a casual player, Football Champions Cup slot is a must try game! Keep on reading to find out more.
Before things get too intense, let’s go throughout the basics real quick. First up, Football Champions Cup sports a 3 X 5 reel layout with an embedded 20 paylines. For the more casual players out there, you can play this game at a mere 20p per spin and if you are an enthusiast or just here to make some money, you can wager anything up to £100 per spin.
The good news continues with the exceptional return to player rate of 96.8%. Even after playing this game for almost 45 minutes, we never once went below our initial bank balance. More often than not, the bonus games and the free spins will catapult our bank balance by quite a bit, and that just allows us to have more fun! Free spins and bonuses are also plenty in this game and you stand a chance of winning up to 500 times your wager at any point of time.
Whether it’s in a lot or in real life, penalty shootouts never fails to keep our adrenaline pumping at all times, and oh boy, NetEnt has successfully done just that to this slot game. The first feature would be the Click me Shootout Bonus Game. Just as the name suggests, this penalty shootout will require you to score goals in order to win cash! To trigger this feature, you will have to get at least three bonus symbols anywhere on your reels.
In this feature, you will have to choose between four different positions to shoot at to score your goal. If the goalkeeper does not anticipate your shot and fails to save the shot, you instantly win cash! Consequently, it will be your opponents turn to shoot and you have to save the shot by picking from four spots.
If you successfully save the shot, your win multiplier value goes up and if you don’t manage to save the shot, you lose that round. Win multipliers range from just 1X to a staggering 16X depending on the number of bonus symbols you get in the beginning. All in all, you will have 5 rounds to rack up as much cash as you can in this feature.
The second feature in this game is the free spins tournaments. Obtaining 3 scatters anywhere on your reels will trigger this feature and as a reward, you will receive 6 free spins. To win this tournament you will have to receive more red wild symbols as this translates to a goal for your team over your opponents. Simple, get more red wilds and you win the tournament. The further you go in the tournament, the more free spins you get!
But wait, there’s more! The rewards of winning the tournament does not stop there. The top 3 prizes that you can win are as follows:
- 1st Prize: 500 times your wager
- 2nd Prize: 100 times your wager
- 3rd Prize: 20 times your wager
Throughout the game, you will also receive tonnes of wild symbols, and these wilds will contribute quite a bit to your winnings.
Not only does Football Champions Cup live up to the EURO hype, it also performs on the same level. The graphics is nothing short of spectacular, although that is pretty much expected from an experienced developer like NetEnt. The soundtrack that accompanies the gameplay is also spot on and it does enhance the whole football experience.
We are also glad to report that this game is playable across all devices and runs smoothly even after long gaming sessions. Players with older phone models would be glad as we encountered zero lags even on our aging Samsung Galaxy S6.
We have to admit that the timing of which this game is released is absolutely spot on. Just in time for Euro 2016, everything about this game is part of the hype. The unique aspect about Football Champions Cup is how exciting its bonus features are. Never before we have seen “tournament” styled bonus games where players are in it to win it.
Put it this way; the whole theme of this game is designed so well that is incites the same feelings as when you are watching your favourite team play a game. We loved the suspense and the excitement just as much.
In conclusion, Football Champions Cup is a game that all of us football fans have been waiting for all the time. This game has everything that a slot player could ask for: exciting features, great RTP rates and a fun theme.
Now, we know what we are going to play during breaks of the EUFA European Championships coming in the next few days! Coupled with the convenient autoplay feature in this game, we might just end up playing this game all the way through. What a time to be alive in!
