Football: Champions Cup is a finely crafted football-themed 20-payline video slot which runs on the NetEnt software platform. The game features wilds, Scoring Wilds and Overlay Wilds, all of which are represented by a Football. The game’s scatter is the Cup symbol and the Bonus symbol triggers the bonus round. Players can try the game on this page for free or, if they wish to play the slot for real money, they can visit any of the listed NetEnt casinos.
Before taking part in the champions cup, players need to choose a country which will be their team throughout the game. In order to change the bet level, the “Level” arrows need to be pushed. The “Coin Value” buttons adjusts the coin size, ranging from 0.01 to 0.5. “Spin” initiates the game, “Autoplay” spins the reels for a preset number of times and “Max Bet” turns the reels at the highest wager available.
Between 2 and 5 Overlay Wild symbols can emerge on the reels during the base game. The 1st Overlay Wild appears on reels 1 to 3 in a random fashion and the 2nd Overlay Wild randomly appears on reels 1 to 4.
When 3 or more scatters appear on the reels, the Free Spins Tournament will be triggered. The Tournament equals the knockout stage in the football championship. Every Free Spin round is a football game and if players win the match, they advance to the next round, thus reactivating Free Spins. Coin prizes will be awarded for the 3rd, 2nd and 1st places. The maximum number of Free Spin rounds is 4 and each round consists of 6 Free Spins.
During the Free Spins Tournament, there are additional Scoring Wilds that activate goals for the player’s and the opponent’s teams, depending on where the symbol lands. While regular wilds can appear anywhere, the Scoring Wilds can emerge only on certain reels. Blue Scoring Wilds can land on reels 1 and 2, triggering a goal for the player’s team, while Red Scoring Wilds can appear on reels 4 and 5, activating a goal for the opponent’s team.
Should the score be tied after the 6 Free Spins in each round, an additional Free Spin will be awarded until one team wins. If the player’s team is the victorious one, they progress to the next stage and are given 6 Free Spins. If players lose the semifinal, they play a bonze match. The 1st place awards a x500 bet multiplier, the 2nd places with a x100 bet multiplier and the 3rd place will be awarded with a x20 bet multiplier.
The bonus game starts when 3 or more Bonus icons emerge on the reels. The game is a pick and click penalty shootout with 5 rounds. Every round has 2 parts. In the 1st part players choose 1 of the 4 positions to score and in the 2nd part players act as a goalkeeper, choosing 1 of the 4 positions to save the opponent’s shot.
If players score, the score is increased by 1 and a coin win is given. If players save the shot, the win multiplier is raised by 1. If they fail to save the shot, the opponent’s score increases by 1. If they miss, no coin win is awarded. If there is a tie after 5 rounds, an extra round is played until 1 teams out as a winner.
If the bonus round is triggered by 3 Bonus icons, the multiplier starts with x1 and can grow till x11. The coin win can range from x1 to x3 times the bet. If the bonus round is activated by 4 Bonus icons, the multiplier starts with x3 and can range to x13. The coin win can go from x2 to x4 times the bet. If the bonus round is set off by 5 Bonus icons, the multiplier can go between x5 and x15. The coin win may range from x5 to x7 times the bet.
