Football slot machines to play during Euro 2016
2016 is one of those summers that football fans love. Not only are they avoiding the usual three month drought when the sporting highlights seem to just be tennis, golf and cricket, they have two international tournaments to enjoy – both Euro 2016 and the Rio Olympics. The former’s already kicked off and it’s fair to say that whatever your political standpoint it’s already providing some very good reasons to want to be part of Europe. For example there’s the Welsh team defying all expectations as well as Iceland refusing to give in to the might of Portugal. Even England have made it through to the knockout stages.
And if even all this isn’t enough to satisfy the keenest football fans there have also been more than a few slots released to coincide with, and capitalize upon, the tournament. Here’s our pick of five of the best.
Football Champions Cup
Netent’s Football Champions Cup was released at the end of May, two weeks before the tournament started, was. You can play it on any smartphone or tablet and it’s all about interactivity. You start by choosing the flag you want to play under – and if you can’t decide there’s also a random selection for you.
The game itself is a standard five reel, three row format and your plays are accompanied by authentic stadium sound effects of cheering and applause. Bonus rounds include a penalty shootout and there’s also a free spins tournament with some pretty good prizes
Bicicleta from Yggdrasil Gaming sounds more like it should be connected with the Tour de France but in fact it celebrates the athletic bicycle or overhead kick.
Featuring five reels and 25 pay lines it also has football stadium sound effects with stakes that range from 25p to £50. There’s also the chance to win up to 24 free spins, as well as the reported chance to win handsome pay-outs.
Euro Golden Cup
Euro Golden Cup from Genesis Gaming sees you make your way through a series of rounds to approach the final and along the way you can enjoy free spins and wilds as well as a penalty shootout which awards some great multiplier prizes. The symbols to look out for are the golden football which acts as a wild and the flags that can open up more levels – and the big prizes start to come after you’ve hit level three.
Euro Football Champ
Even the Asian Xin Gaming has got in on the Euro 2016 action with this five reel, three row 20 line slot that gives you a free spin to let you choose the country that you want to represent. It’s also got all the wilds and extra rounds you’d expect and – you’ve guessed it – a penalty shootout too.
There’s more than a hint of nostalgia to our final game. Based loosely on the magazine of the same name whose player posters have decorated so many bedroom walls, it’s a five reel 50 win line game with features including a trade’em bonus and a magazine bonus too which lets you pick from classic editions to win cash prizes.
Plus whichever of the slots you try, make sure you maximize your chances of winning by following some very straight forward tips on maximizing slot payouts and hopefully your results will be a bit more like France’s and a bit less like Russia’s.
