Soccer fans at Australian online casinos will soon have the mother of all football themed online pokies to play on. NetEnt will release later in May Football: Champions Cup at its Australian online casinos like Vera & John. This pokie celebrates Euro 2016 that begins in June.
The usual football stadium in the background, cheering crowd sound effects and typical football symbols are there. But beyond that there is a strong element of interactivity. In the Football: Champions Cup online pokie players can choose the flag of a participating country. The Free Spins Tournament is triggered when three trophy symbols appear on the reels. You see the draw bracket on the screen and the Home Wilds and Away Wilds determine the progress of the teams from the Round of 16 to the Final. If your chosen team wins the gold, silver or bronze cup there are extra payouts for you. The online pokie has a bonus game on the second screen called Shootout Bonus Game which is triggered by three bonus symbols. You pick a spot for the shooter to kick at and if the goalie cannot make the save then a lucrative bonus win will be added to your balance. There is action in the main game as well through the Overlay Wild feature. This feature changes regular symbols into the wild football symbols generating more wilds on the reels and more winning combinations.
Euro 2016 and the Football: Champions Cup online pokie deserve a mega promotion and NetEnt has announced one that will run at the brands of all its licensees. The full details will be out closer to the launch of the online promotion but its teaser is as enticing as the teaser of the new online pokie. It is a prize draw promotion with humongous football related prizes. You will earn one ticket to the prize draw by playing 20 real money spins of AU$0.20 or more on Football: Champions Cup. You can earn multiple tickets by continuing your play on the online pokie up to a maximum of 50. This will maximise the chances of your ticket being pulled out of the hat. The first prize is an incredible opportunity to watch three top level football matches in three different European countries in one week for free. This is something many soccer fans pay an arm for. The teams and the stadiums are being kept under wraps for now, but going by NetEnt’s reputation you will not be disappointed.
