Our football review: Champions Cup Online Slot

On 23 May 2016 NetEnt brought its new football online slot to the casinos, where everything revolves around the round leather. The player enters the pitch, accompanied by the frenetic cheering of the crowd and then has to make his choice: With which team does he want to compete? You can choose from the big teams of Europe, if you don’t want to make a decision, you can click on the question mark, then the decision is made by chance.

The symbols appear on the reels according to the choice of the team, which are placed against the background of a stadium where you can hear the fans cheering again and again. On the reels, the players will encounter symbols next to the classic card symbols football jerseys, football players, goalkeeper gloves, football shoes, whistles, the big cup and of course the black and white football itself. The online slot of NetEnt has 5×3 reels and 20 paylines. There are wild symbols, free spins and a bonus game.

Functions of the online slot

The atmosphere in the virtual online slot stadium provides goose bumps for the players during the whole game. The basic game of the slot itself is less exciting, but the additional functions bring variety into the game. Just like in real soccer life: Sometimes the game can take a long time, only to get your pulse racing moments later.

Scatter Symbol

The golden cup is the scatter symbol. If three or more of these symbols appear anywhere on the reels, the Free Spins Tournament will be triggered. Meanwhile, the game continues with the same coin value and bet level as in the round where it was triggered.

Free Spins Tournament

There are two different wild symbols in this additional feature. A football with a blue border and a football with a red border. The blue symbol stands for “Home” and means that whenever it appears on the reels, the player’s team has scored a goal. The red symbol stands for “guest” and means that the opposing team has scored a goal. During the Free Spins Tournament, the player completes four rounds of six Free Spins. Anyone who comes this far will receive prizes up to 500 times the stake.

Wild symbol

The football is the wild symbol. It can replace all symbols except the scatter and bonus symbols. There are also Overlaying Wilds in this game. They can appear randomly on each spin and cover two to five positions in the game with a wild symbol. The normal Wild symbols can still appear anywhere on the reels.

Bonus Symbol

The Golden Bonus Writing is the bonus symbol. Three or more of these will trigger the Penalty Bonus Game.

Penalty Bonus Game

This add-on feature will make football fans love it because it’s a Pick & Click game of Penalty Shooting. In the first round the player finds himself in front of his opponent’s goal, the goalkeeper is ready. In the four corners of the goal, there are yellow markers on which the player can click. If he decides correctly, the ball lands in the goal and the player wins a coin value. In the second round, the player is the goalkeeper and must defend the four corners of the goal. If he holds the opponent’s shot, he gets a multiplier as a win. If the score is still a tie after five rounds, the game continues until one player scores a goal. NetEnt has managed to get the thrill out of the stadium into the online casino.

Frequently Asked Questions about Slots

How Slots Work?

The player has no direct influence on the winnings or odds of the slots. However, since the programmed percentage of payouts varies from device to device and online casino to online casino, the player can influence his chances of winning at least in the choice of casino and machine.

Online most slot machines pay out in the long run between 92 and 98 percent again. The higher this value is, the better it is for the players. Most offerers indicate this payout ratio on the info. board of each slot machine.

In general applies that Jackpot automats have somewhat worse ratios than normal automats. So with the prospect of a potential million-you-win, you’ll buy yourself a little worse payouts in the long run.

Slots settings

Addition to the infinite variety of themes and symbols on the different slot machines, there are some other settings you can make as a player.

Multilines (Lines)

On a very simple slot machine, you’ll be paid if the three symbols on the middle line match. Most of the time you can see the two lines above and below, but they don’t count. In a multi-line game, you can activate these two lines by betting extra money. If not only horizontal but also oblique lines count, bets of nine coins or more are possible. Online you can sometimes bet over 20 lines and you can usually set how many lines you want to play.

Multiplier (Coins)

By inserting several coins before a game, you can multiply the potential winnings. Usually the number of coins (and thus the multiplier) is limited. If you insert about five coins and get a line win worth ten times the bet, then you will be paid a total of 50 coins (5 x 10). For your chances of winning it does not matter which multiplier you choose.
