In mid-May 2016 NetEnt launched a brand new football themed online slot machine called Football: Champions Cup. This is a non-downloadable slot which can be launched instantly in your web browser, no download required. You can play on this new NetEnt slot either in the real money mode or in the free play mode and as soon as you launch this game you get to choose your preferred European football club.
You can also hit the dice button towards the bottom of the game window. This will randomly select a team for you, plus you can also use the left and right arrows for even more options. As soon as you have selected a team, hit the Start Game button so that you can be taken to the reels. You can easily change your team once you have been taken to the reels by clicking on the country’s flag which is located towards the bottom right hand side of the game window.
The regular Wild Symbol during normal play is the Football, the Scatter Symbol is the Trophy and the Bonus Symbol is the word Bonus. This game also has Blue Wild Symbols and Red Wild Symbols (aka Scoring Wilds) but these two symbols will only ever show up during the Free Spins Bonus Round. This exciting bonus will instantly trigger when three Scatter Symbols land in any positon on reels 2, 3 and 4 (the three middle reels).
When the Free Spins Tournament is triggered it will automatically initiate the knockout stage in the football championship which is comprised of four individual Free Spins Bonus Rounds. The aim is to try and make it to the final where you will receive an extra coin prize. During the Free Spins Bonus Round, the Blue Wild Symbols (home team) can land on reels 1 and 2 and the Red Wild Symbols (away team) can land on reels 4 and 5 and each Scoring Wild that shows up is worth 1 goal. The team that scores the most goals wins.
There’s also an exciting second screen bonus round which will instantly trigger when three or more of the Bonus Symbols land in any positon across the reels. During this fun shootout bonus, all you need to do is pick a spot in the goal and if you score you will receive some kind of guaranteed coin prize. Once you have taken a penalty it will then be your turn to try and make save by guessing where your opponent will shoot.
This is definitely a fun new football themed slot and it will more than likely be enjoyed by millions of players as we approach this year’s 2016 UEFA European Championship (aka Euro 2016). UK players will soon be able to play on this new NetEnt slot at top UK online casinos such as Bet365 Vegas, bgo Vegas, Mr Green Casino and Slots Magic.
