Football Champions Cup is an action-packed Netent online slot played on a 5-reel grid with 20 fixed paylines. Players select a team to represent, as their base and bonus game plays will work toward reaching the Freespins Championship Tournament, whilst playing as goalkeeper of their chosen football team.
The ultimate goal is to win the Football Champions Cup in the Free-Spins Finals Match. As players spin the base game reels, they can optimise their betting money by landing on matched-symbol payline combinations of various objects related to the sport.

To increase possibilities of landing on payline wins, NetEnt incorporated Base Game Wild Overlays that appear at random. The Wild Overlays help significantly in completing more and/or landing on high-paying matched-symbol combinations. As additional source of coin wins, a Penalty Shootout Bonus game may be triggered.
Football Champions Cup Wild Symbols
This online slot game has three types of Wild Symbols that appear at random. One is a Yellow Wild icon, which is the regular wild card that arbitrarily appears as outcomes of both base game and free-spins reels. Each reel is configured with a Yellow Wild, denoting that the symbol may appear in any reel in every game session. The additional Yellow Wild Overlays appear in specific reels; increasing further, slot players' chances of hitting payline wins.
The other two, are the Blue and Red Scoring Wilds arbitrarily appearing in the reels of the Football Champions Cup Free-Spins Tournament. The Scoring Wilds play key roles during the free games, as their emergence influences the Round Scores of the football teams. The Round Scores on the other hand determines whether a player wins as means to advance to the next free-spins game level.
The Blue Scoring Wilds appear in Reels 1 and 2 and represents a goal in favor of the slot player. The Red Scoring Wilds appear in Reels 4 and 5, representing a score in favor the opposing team.

Football Champions Cup – Football Cup Symbol and Free-Spins Tournament
The Football Cup totem, which appears only in the centre reels, can trigger the free games. A Football Cup in Reels 2, 3, and 4 appearing altogether as outcomes of a paid spin will activate the Free-Spins Tournament. Initially, a set of six free-spins will be awarded.
A round of free games depicts the Football Champions Cup knockout stages. Aside from aiming to land on bonus wins via matched payline combos, players must also try to land on more Blue Scoring Wilds in order to win each round. The emergence of the Red Scoring Wild Symbol has a detrimental effect. Getting more Red Wilds at the end of a round means, the opposing team wins and this will end the bonus round.
Winning every round for one's chosen team allows advancement to higher free-spins game levels and toward the Football Champions Cup Finals where the jackpot prize at stake is 500x the Bet staked on the triggering spin.
