Like most footy-themed slots, Football Champions Cup takes you to the heart of the action, inside a make-believe stadium with a roaring crowd. While the screaming of cheering fans, and the trophy, boot and whistle symbols create enough of an atmosphere to remind you that this is a football-themed game that you’re playing. The cheering following a win adds to the excitement.
This NetEnt developed video slot invites players to select their team, and help them on the path to glory, with a penalty shoot-out and knockout round inspired bonuses all adding to the thematic element of this slot.
The Look and Feel of Football: Champions Cup Slot
This is a game which takes on a slightly different look and feels to other NetEnt slots. The wagering menu is jazzed up and very modern, and the although the imagery on the reels is only partly thematic, players will still get that footy feeling from the game. As for paylines and stakes, there are 5 reels and 20 lines for you to get to grips with. Betting options allow players to wager between $0.20 and $100 a spin.
Football Champions Cup Slot Gameplay
Like any nickel and dime NetEnt slot, players win when they land 3 identical symbols on a payline. Of the symbols which feature in the game, the thematic, football-related ones are worth more than the high-playing cards. Landing 5 wilds on a line can see you win 2,000 coins, though. Football Champions Cup has a return to player (RTP) rate of 96.82%.
Football Champions Cup Slot Bonus Features
A handful of bonus features also debut in the game. Golden footballs appear as wilds, and they can replace all icons barring other special symbols. Overlaying wilds can also randomly appear on the reels in the base game.
You can trigger a free spin feature by landing 3 of the trophy emblems on the second, third and fourth reels.
In that bonus, players can enjoy 6 free games, and special blue and red wilds appear. Blue wilds offer a goal to your opponent, but reds see your side (which you choose at the start of the game) score. If you score more goals than your opponent at the end of the bonus, you can advance to further free spin bonuses in the Round of 16, Quarter-Finals, Semi-Finals and Final.
There is also a Penalty Shoot-Out Bonus which is triggered by landing 3 or more bonus icons. In this feature, players must select spots to score and save penalties. Cash prizes are paid out based on your performance.
