The Wombat says: slot wizards Microgaming (Games Global) decided to zone in on all the mayhem and madness that surrounded the European football Championships.
Hence Euro Golden Cup, which as you might have gathered is a footie-themed slot.
Among all the football paraphernalia, you’ll also find Free Spins with stacked wilds, transforming wilds and a penalty shootout Bonus feature with some win multiplier prizes.
Let’s kick off things off then, shall we? On the head, son!
Look and Feel
Fairly basic but attractive with large symbols occupying the screen space but we can just about make out bits of a stadium and floodlights in the background. It’s got that classic feel about it like Secret Romance slot, just with more football of course!
Euro Golden Cup slot has 5 reels, 3 rows and 25 paylines just like the Foxin’ Wins Christmas slot and whole load of other top games we could mention. This football themed slot works just like a major tournament. As you progress through the levels in the hope of becoming Euro Champions, you’ll also scoop a trophy full of cold hard cash.
Your symbols on the reels are made up of football shirts in different coloured strips (orange, grey, purple, green, blue and yellow) with the numbers 9, 10, 11, 12, 13 & 14 emblazoned on them – these represent your lower value symbols, meanwhile the higher value icons are the footballer players themselves who also come in different colours and have very chiselled jaws. Land 5x of the on any payline and you’ll win of which will get 40x your stake. Goal!
The graphics aren’t super state of the art- we’d say they are more on the Fat Cat slot level, but they are easy on the eye and the game-play on this slot is good.
The Wild symbol in Euro Golden Cup is the golden football, and this helpful little icon will appear on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 while it substitutes for all other symbols on the reels (except for the scatter) to help you make more winning combos. Keep your eyes peeled for the national flags too, when matching flags land on reels 1 and 5, you’ll win a trophy which will help unlock further features, and move you up to the next round. Yeeaah!
Finally, the ref’s whistle is the Scatter symbol – land 3x or more of these and you’ll trigger off the Play Maker Free Spin feature.
Euro Golden Cup Slot Bonus Features
Trophies are important in this slot Wombat Fans, as they enable you to move up a level. And more levels means more extra features. Collect these bad boys by either landing the national flags icons on reels 1 and 5, or by landing 3x or more of the ref’s whistle Scatters symbols anywhere. This will give you 15 trophies and you’ll unlock the following cheeky extras:
Play Maker Free Spins
0-14 trophies: This will give you up to Free Spins with a stacked wild which will fill up the whole reel it lands on.
Striker Feature 15-29 trophies: It’s 10 free spins here for you plus a striker target icon which will turn into another symbol (level 2) or a wild symbol (level 3).
30+ trophies: It’s penalty time! Here you’ll get to take five penalties against an opposition goalie. Score a goal and you’ll scoop 2x-5x your orginal bet as well as the tournament trophy! Miss the penalty and you’ll get a 1x multiplier. Scoring more than the opposition means your total win from the bonus is doubled.
As far as footie-themed slots go, this one’s a cracker. Decent bonuses, easy multi-level gameplay and the animations and sounds of a huge championship will all get your heart racing. It’s a ‘thumbs up’ from us!
