Football: Champions Cup Review
In 2016, NetEnt was inspired by the current Euro Cup and decided to give the world a chance to experience its own football tournament. Playing on 5-reels with 20 fixed paylines, Football: Champions Cup is a sport slot with a maximum payout of 1,000x your stake.
There are two main features in this slot, and they include the Penalty Shootout Bonus and a Free Spins Tournament. It's up to you to see if you can bring football home to your chosen country in Football: Champions Cup.
In the background, there is a football with various crowds and supporters in the stadium. Unfortunately, nothing is animated and there is no visual life to the base gameplay with the symbols on the reels or the background. Thankfully, this changes during the bonus rounds and it becomes more animated bringing more life to the slot.
There are ambient cheers and other noises mixed within soft music as to not distract the player too much. The whole sound mixing is pretty solid and builds up a decent atmosphere for an intense football match.
As the slot opens up, you decide on which country you wish to represent. This is a nice little detail but doesn't add too much to the gameplay as the rest of the slot is pretty traditional.
All the menus can be found at the bottom of the screen with the spin button in the middle with the autospin just next to it. You'll notice other menus to the left such as sound or other general settings you could need.
Throughout the bonus rounds, you can win cash prizes with the maximum being 1,000x your stake (according to the developers). It has a medium to high volatility level, which usually expects a bigger payout so this is a little disappointing. On the other hand, the RTP is at a solid 96.82% which is fantastic for online slots.
The features in this slot are brilliant and pair well with the solid gameplay. Football: Champions Cup disappoints with its low win potential of 1,000x your stake which is incredibly low. However, if you like football slots and want something different, then Football: Champions Cup is one to try out.
Of course, if you are looking for a bigger payout, then definitely check out the Sporting Legends series with a progressive jackpot attached.
