NetEnt’s Football: Champions Cup slot is due for release on the 23rd May and, true to form, 7 weeks before launch, NetEnt released a first footage video to give players a sneak preview of what they can expect from this football-themed slot. NetEnt don’t at present have a football slot, so we have no doubt it will come as a welcome addition to the games providers selection to sports fanatics the world over.
NetEnt gave the first hints of this brand new slot for 2016 in their released Roadmap for 2016 (you can read all about it here!) and, while we didn’t have much information at the time, we gave our best educated guess as to what the slot might look like in our article a couple of days later. One of our writers even correctly predicted that the slot would feature a penalty shoot-out bonus round! Check out our original article.
Perhaps unsurprisingly given the theme of this particular video slot, the symbols are all football-related. You’ll find footballs, boots, shirts, goalies gloves and referee’s whistles and other elements of the slot have also been thoughtfully designed. Take, for example, the advertising boards behind the goals- each features a different NetEnt slot like Gonzo’s Quest. Subtle advertising within a slot game! That’s definitely new!
When you start a new game, your first selection will be vital! Players can choose which team they wish to play with, and the game is subtly altered to suit your selection. If you’re unsure, just click the ‘surprise’ box for a lucky dip selection. Regardless of which team you choose, the sound effects throughout remain the same and you’ll hear crowds chanting and cheering as you play. You’ll (with a little luck!) progress your way through qualification stages to the quarter-, semi-, and (eventually!) finals. The higher you place in the Champions Cup tournament the more you win!
We love a good bonus round and Football: Champions Cup have a truly great one! Line up several of the football bonus symbols and you’ll find yourself at the start of a penalty shoot-out bonus game. Here, you simply pick a corner of the goal and if you’re lucky and the goalie goes the wrong way, you score in more ways than one.
We’re still 7 weeks of it’s release date but we’re already aware of one super hot Summer promotion lined up to coincide with the release of NetEnt latest new slot for 2016. Numerous NetEnt casinos have already shown their interest so we have no doubt there will be plenty of places you can try your hand at landing the big prize. Play 20 or more rounds on this brand new slot (for real cash) and you’ll get one ticket into the raffle. First prize? Tickets to watch three top-level matches.
Winners of these tickets plus bundles of football memorabilia will be announced on the 11th July- plenty of time to get yourself in the mood for watching world-class football live! You can find more info on this in our article from last week.
