When it comes to football there is always a rivalry between South America and Europe, the first ones rely on their natural born talent and the other in specialized football schools and a fantastic structure.
There European ones have developed the sport to a whole new level with excellent figures such as Cristiano Ronaldo, Eden Hazard, Zlatan Ibrahimović and Paul Pogba. Even Lionel Messi is a product of a natural born talent being enhanced in a very good academy.
The maximum honor in European football for the national squads is the Euro cup and the upcoming tournament will take place in France in June of this year.
So there isn’t a better way to lure the excitement produced by this Euro cup than releasing a video game with the same theme. NetEnt did a fantastic job in choosing the time and moment for this release. We have less than a month to have a taste of this game.
NetEnt is an excellent developer with tons of games in their portfolio. With innovation as their characteristic feature and quality as a synonym of the brand there are a lot of things to expect from this game.
What We Love
The environment is superb in every way. The football theme matches perfectly with the layout and the design. The reels are set in a soccer pitch and the symbols are simple yet very constant with the central concept.
There are gloves, shoes, whistles, a cup and a ball. All very representative of the football world. The sound of the audience is incredible, you will like you’re playing the match and everyone is cheering for you. I love to win when the people are with me.
The sole fact that you get to choose your team squad flag is a terrific way to enhance the experience by making it your own. Is your tournament and your country, if you trigger three free spins symbols you will get the NetEnt’s version of the Euro Cup. It will be a Free Spins tournament starting in quarter finals and you will slot your way up to the championship. The higher you get, the higher amount of free spins you’ll get. Simple amazing.
Last but not least the Shootout Bonus game is terrific. I simply love it. You will be in front of a goalkeeper that has no intention of letting you score, you choose the corner and wait if he chooses the same. Interactive, innovative and fun. What else can I ask for in a slot?
What We Don’t Love
I’ve got to admit it. I’m a football enthusiast and I think this is an incredible way to show a title. Nothing to discuss about the playability, but in terms of earnings it could be a lot higher. There aren’t any progressive jackpots or multipliers, I’m not going to earn a lot only by spinning freely. And that’s the base of a slot.
I don’t have a doubt in my mind that this is the game for you. Even though it doesn’t have big earnings or progressive jackpots is perfect to play it while we have a football fever thanks to the upcoming Euro cup.
NetEnt didn’t only read the trend and the moment properly they made a game suited for people who likes sports and football in general. With competition, bonuses and free spins.
The problem with this theme is to be able to differentiate yourself from the rest. And boy they have done it. The outstanding gameplay is the cornerstone of this project. Excellent layout and incredible sounds. Are you prepared to feel like you’re in a football match while you’re playing slots? Highly recommend it.
