When NetEnt announced its roadmap for the second quarter of 2016, the digital gaming software company had announced that it would be including a soccer-themed video slot game. The game release will has been well timed in order to increase the excitement for the live Champions Cup that will be taking place later this year. NetEnt has now releases footage of the Football: Champions Cup video slot game. The slot will be released on May 23rd, 2016.
About Football: Champions Cup Slot
The symbols that are seen on the reels include footballs, shirts, boots, gloves that are used by a goalkeeper, whistles for the ref, a football logo, high value card symbols, and more. The sound effects are top quality, with cheering crowds, who also chant, just as would by typical of live football fans at an important match.
The background of the slot game shows the crowds watching the football match, and an advertising board, just as players and fans would see in a real life stadium. Interestingly, NetEnt has used the advertising boards to publicise some of their previous game releases. This subtle form of advertising to remind casino players of other games they may wish to play is a particularly clever idea from NetEnt’s game designers.
When the game begins, you will have a chance to pick your team. The game will then be played out according to the team you have chosen. If you do not wish to make the choice yourself, simply click on the surprise box that is available in order to let the casino software make the choice for you.
As the game progresses, you can go through the various qualifying stages from quarter finals to semi finals, and hopefully ending up at the finals. You will win more rewards as you advance in the Champions Cup football match stages.
When playing Football: Champions Cup, there is a penalty shootout bonus round. When you play this round, you get to pick which corner of the goal you want the ball to go to, and hope that the goalie will try and save it in the opposite direction.
