Between 2 and 5 Overlay Wilds can appear during the main game. The 1st Overlay Wild appears randomly on Reels 1 to 3, and the 2nd Overlay Wild appears randomly on reels 1 to 4. If any additional Overlay Wilds appear, they can appear anywhere where there is no Wild Symbol. Overlay Wilds cannot appear on top of other Wild Symbols, or Scatter and Bonus Symbols.
Football Champions Cup Bonus Game
In Football Champions Cup 3 or more Bonus Game Symbols activates the Bonus Game. The Bonus Game is a ‘Pick and Click’ game with 5 rounds, and each round consists of 2 parts.
For the first part of each round, you will pick 1 of the 4 positions on the screen to try and score. If you score, your team’s score increases by 1 point, and a coin win is awarded. If you fail to score, neither the coin wins or the multipliers are awarded and the shootout continues.
For the second part of each round, you will be the goalkeeper and pick 1 of the 4 positions to try and save the opponent’s shot. If you save the opponent’s shot, a win multiplier is awarded. Every time you save the opponent’s shot, the win multiplier increases by 1. If you fail to save the opponent’s shot, the opponent’s score increases by 1.
After the 5 rounds, if the score is tied, additional rounds are played until one team wins. Your payout is determined by the coins won during the Bonus Game, which are multiplied by the final multiplier. The coin win range and the multiplier are determined by the number of Bonus Symbols that trigger the Bonus Game.
- 3 Bonus Symbols: Initial Multiplier is 1, and ranges from 1X to 11X. Coin wins for scored goal ranges from 1X to 3X bet.
- 4 Bonus Symbols: Initial Multiplier is 3, and ranges from 3X to 13X. Coin wins for scored goal ranges from 2X to 4X bet.
- 5 Bonus Symbols: Initial Multiplier is 5, and ranges from 5X to 15X. Coin wins for scored goal ranges from 5X to 7X bet.
Maximum number of penalty rounds is 10. After 9 rounds are completed, and the score is tied, the next round is the final round, where you are guaranteed to score and save. The minimum you can win during the Bonus game is 20 Coins, and the maximum you can win is 98,000 Coins.
Football Champions Cup Free Spins Tournament
In Football Champions Cup when 3 Scatter Symbols appear anywhere on reels 2, 3, and 4 during the main game, the Free Spins Tournament is activated. Each Free Spins round is a separate football game, and by winning the match you advance to the next round to play another match, thus reactivate the Free Spins. The goal is to win the tournament, and coin prizes are awarded for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Places. Each round consists of 6 Spins.
Wilds and Scoring Wilds will trigger goals for your team and the opponent’s team, depending on the reel they appear on. Wilds and Scoring Wilds both substitute for all symbols. No Scatter or Bonus Symbols appear during the Free Spins Tournament.
Regular Wilds can appear on any reel, and Blue Scoring Wilds can appear only on Reels 1 and 2, triggering a goal for your team. Red Scoring Wilds can appear only on Reels 4 and 5, triggering a goal for your opponent’s team.
If the score is tied after the first 6 spins in each round, extra spins are played until one team wins. If your team wins, you advance to the next level of the tournament and win 6 additional Free Spins. If you lose the Semifinal, a consolation Bronze Match is played.
Your coin wins are determined by what position you place.
- First Place: 500X bet Multiplier
- Second Place: 100X Bet Multiplier
- Third Place: 20X Bet Multiplier
The theoretical Return To Player (RTP) for this game is 96.82%. As with any other NetEnt Video Slot, the HD graphics are quite impressive.
