Remember NetEnt’s Football Champions Cup online slot? As football fever gripped Europe, NetEnt released this footy slot game just in time for Euro 2016 to give us our footballing fix on the reels. But now, with another major football tournament on the horizon, we need a footy slot again! NetEnt delivers again by revamping its slot with all the teams in the 2018 World Cup. Just in time for…you guessed it…the World Cup.

FIFA, Eat Your Heart Out

As the World Cup kicks off, there are plenty of gamers who are taking to their next-generation consoles and firing up copies of FIFA or Pro Evolution Soccer. “Pah,” we say. “Pah, pah pah.” Why waste time on these games when you can get something much better on NetEnt’s Football Champions Cup slot?

The graphics on Football Champions Cup are similar to video games. Footballs, Boots, Gloves and Icons making up the symbols and giving the impression we’re now playing Football Manager. But then the bonuses on this are much, much better than anything on a console game. Take the Penalty Shootout Bonus for example. When we tackle three or more Bonus symbols, we head to the penalty spot. We pick where we’re going to shoot and then our player takes a shot. The following kick we take our place in between the sticks as the goalie and try to save the shot. The thing about this game is that we actually win a cash prize, rather than bragging rights or some poxy medals.

All We Need This Summer

By reinvigorating an already great slot, NetEnt delivers one of the best footballing slots around. We select our favourite country, take advantage of Penalty Shootouts and Free Spins and have plenty of chances of winning big. Which is a lot better than England will likely fare this year.
