Just released in time for Euro 2016, NetEnt’s 3-row, 5-reel, 20-fixed payline, online slot Football: Champions Cup hits the online casinos with a high end RTP of 96.82% and the chance to win up to 210,350 coins! This Football themed online slot offers attractive Features such as Free Spins, a Bonus Game and Overlay Wilds for maximum win potential. NetEnt appeals to millions of footie fans around the world with its newest online slot.
The Crowd Goes Wild
Football: Champions Cup’s 3 x 5 reels are set in front of a mammoth, open topped football stadium filled to the brim with thousands of excited spectators wildly cheering. Players get to choose a flag before starting which then rests in the bottom right corner throughout gameplay. Football: Champions Cup graphics and sound effects truly capture a live football game experience. Net Entertainment has again succeeded in creating an online slot experience that brings players out of their homes and into a live performance. Slots, like NetEnt’s Guns N’Roses and now Football: Champions Cup, blend realistic details like stadiums together with crowd ambiance making for a more genuine experience.
Football: Champions Cup shows Bets, Total Balance, and Wins in both cash and coin values at the bottom of the slot screen. Choose a Bet Level (1-10) to select a Coin Bet ranging from 20-200 coins. Choose a Bet Level AND 1 of 6 Coin Values (0.01-0.50) to choose a Cash Bet ranging from 20p-£100 at Karamba. For example, a CV of 0.02 with a BL of 3 results in a Cash Bet of £1.20 per spin.
Football: Champions Cup’s 15 symbols are mostly football themed. There are 5 special symbols: Wild, Red & Blue Scoring Wilds, Scatter Trophy and Scatter Bonus. The Wilds replace any except for other special symbols. The Scoring Wilds are involved in the Free Spins Feature. The Trophy Scatter activates Free Spins and shows only on reels 2, 3, and 4. The Bonus symbol triggers the Bonus Game Feature. Regular symbols, listed from highest to lowest value, include a Football Player, Shirt, Shoe, Glove, Whistle and A-10. The highest paying symbol of the game is the Wild symbol (2.000, 200, 50).
Get 3+ matching symbols across Football: Champions Cup’s reels starting with the first one for a win. Multiple wins on differing paylines can be combined together for a larger win each spin. The matching symbol values on the paytable remain fixed despite changes in Bet. Coin Wins are calculated by multiplying Matching Symbol Value x Bet Line(s). Cash Wins are calculated by multiplying Coin Win x Coin Value. So, if a spin with a Cash Bet selection of £1.20 (CV0.02; BL3) were to yield 3 matching Wilds (2.000, 200, 50), then the Coin Win would be 150 and the Cash Win would be £3. Fortunately Wins are auto calculated and displayed by the game. Cash Wins are at the bottom, and Coin Wins are displayed in scoreboard digits that appear after each win.
Football: Champions Cup’s base game pays up to 100x the base Cash Bet per payline for a possible £10,000 per single payline. The slot boasts a big potential win of up to 210,350 coins which amounts to about £105,175. Get 3+ of the Whistle symbol or higher to make a profit. Get 4+ of any symbol for a profit.
Select anywhere from 10-1,000 spins in Football: Champions Cup’s Autoplay options. Like all NetEnt, online slots, advanced settings can be set to auto-stop: on any win, if a single win is more than a set amount, or if cash balance increases or decreases by a set amount.
Other options include: Click Spin again to stop reels quickly. Click the wrench icon to set the spacebar to spin. Click the speaker icon to adjust volume. Access Game History to relive spins.
Football: Champions Cup Bonus Features
Overlay Wilds: 2-5 can randomly show up during the main game greatly improving the chance for multiple wins each spin.
Bonus Penalty Shootout Game: Triggered by 3-5 Bonus Scatter symbols, play to get multipliers and coin wins (the more Bonus symbols = bigger prize ranges). Play up to 10 rounds. During each round players must first pick 1 of 4 positions to score, and then act as goalkeeper by picking 1 of 4 positions again. Each score achieved gains a point for the team as well as grants a coin win of up to 7x the Bet. Goalkeeper saves are rewarded with a win multiplier of up to 15x.
Free Spins: 3 Scatter Trophies trigger Free Spins. Free Spins are played out on a separate screen in a sort of “knockout stage” in concurrence with the Football Championship theme. Each round of 6 spins is a football match with a coin prize for 1st place (500x Bet), 2nd place (100x Bet), and 3rd place (20x Bet). Free Spins can be reactivated up to 4 times for a potential 24 Free Spins and 4 coin prizes. The Blue and Red Scoring Wilds appear only during Free Spins. Blue can only show on reels 1 & 2 and scores a goal for the player’s team. Red only shows on reels 4 & 5 and scores a goal for the opposing team.
