The FIFA World Cup is a great sporting event and every 4 years the world comes together over a small leather ball. This NextGen game, Top Strike Championship slot is themed on the Football World Cup. Based on the beautiful game this online slot features several footie-related bonuses. There’s the whistle, let’s play and see if this slot will be a winner!
Look and Feel
The graphics here are on the simple side; with the championship football pitch and terraces full of fans as the backdrop to the reels. We often find this is the case with sporty games (take the Cricket Star scratch card as an example). The action is on the pitch obviously!
The whistle blasts and roars from the crowd provide plenty of atmosphere though, and the reels are transparent to keep things looking tip top on mobile.
Top Strike Championship Slot Game Play
Top Strike Championship slot has 5 reels, 3 rows and 20 paylines coming in just below game like Ariana slot from Microgaming, with it’s 25 paylines. We’d mark this football game down as a medium variance slot.
Your symbols on the reels include the game’s logo, two different players both in a red strip and a goal keeper decked out in yellow kit. Your lower value symbols are made up of the 10, J, Q, K and A standard playing cards.
The Wild in this game is the football that has flags from a plethora of different countries around it (disappointingly we can’t see the Aussie one, harrumph). It will do the usual job of all wild icons to substitute for all other symbols on the reel (except for the World Cup Trophy icon) to make up extra winning combinations. Of course, while you’re on the slots, the players are probably on Evolution Live Roulette, but that’s a different story…
The Scatter and key to the bonus feature is the World Cup symbol, so keep your eyes peeled for it.
Free Spins and Bonus Features
The Free Spins bonus is set off by landing 3x or more of the World Cup scatter symbols – next you’ll be awarded either 10, 15 or 20 Free Spins.
Sadly Wombat Fans, the bonus can’t be re-triggered but there are two other features on offer if luck is on your side (see below) plus all the symbols on the reels are worth more during the bonus rounds.
The Treble Bet Bonus
Landing a golden ticket icon on reel 5 will activate the treble bet bonus feature and now the action on the pitch really heats up!
You’ll get to choose 3 out of 6 countries and if all your teams are winners, then the Knockout bonus feature comes into play. If not, you’ll be taken back to the Free Spins.
The Knockout Stage
The aim of the game here is to pick a winner in each of the four matches, and the further you through the rounds the more chunky pay outs you will pick up. Get through them all and a cash win of 150x your bet is on offer.
If you like your slots simple, then Top Strike Championship slot will be right up your street whether you are a footie fan or not. The bonus within a bonus during the Free Spins is a nice little feature – and without it the slot would be a bit on the basic side.
I’m not sure this game would have much appeal if you’re not a football fan. But for those that are, pull on your football boots and start warming up those fingers – its time to get spinning on the pitch Wombat Fans.Good luck!
Wombat score: 3.5/5
