Football Finals X UP Features
As the name suggests, Football Finals X UP is all about Alchemy Gaming’s X UP feature. The football theme is yet another take on this game producer's trademarked bonus system.
And we have to say, there’s every chance that you could score big if everything falls into place. If you love the X UP system but aren't so keen on the theme, then you can always try one of the other games in this series. They all do the same job and it just depends on what tickles your fancy!
One of the biggest and shiniest symbols that you will see during your time with this slot is the mock-world cup trophies. These are the wild symbols and as soon as they land, they will stack across the entire reel. They substitute for all others except the bonus X UP symbols.
These wilds are particularly useful during the free spins bonus round. The wild symbols also have their own individual payout as well.
X UP Multipliers
The X UP symbols only land on the 3 central reels and you will need 2 of them at least to have any effect on your game. When 2 of these symbols fall into place during the base game, you will notice an X light up at the bottom of the free spins multiplier ladder to the left of the screen.
You will quickly get the idea that every time a pair of X’s land, you start to climb the ladder. You will need this to occur more often with each rung that you climb. For example, 2 X’s get you onto the first step, 4 X’s get you onto the second step and so on. These symbols are important for 2 reasons; they can trigger the bonus round and offer multipliers when the free spins start.
Free Spins Bonus
The X UP symbols add to the multiplier ladder, as you know. But they are also scatter symbols that can trigger the bonus round. In this game, you will get 8 free spins when you see 3 scatter symbols land on reels 2, 3 and 4.
It is also possible to automatically trigger the free spins bonus when you get to the top of the multiplier ladder during the base game.
If you land 3 X Up symbols, you will take the multiplier number that corresponds with your place on the ladder into the bonus round with you. So you could have anywhere between 2x and 10x multipliers.
If you trigger the bonus by completing the ladder, then you get 10x multipliers. For players outside the UK, there is a chance to purchase more multipliers as the bonus round begins.
If another 2 scatter symbols land during the bonus round, then you get an extra 2 free spins to your name.
