Champions Goal online slot is named from the defunct “Golden Goal” concept that was once used in tournament football as a way of deciding tied games but abandoned in 2004. Why Elk Studio’s have chosen this as the inspiration of their game is known only to them (it was not popular and produced negative football) but the Swedish producer have since their inception in 2012 had a slightly left of center approach. The game itself is part slot part mathematical equation. Elk claim it “blends an authentic soccer game experience with the adrenaline rush from the casino halls”.
Champions Goal Slot Gameplay
Champions Goal is set up on a 5 x 3 slot format with 20 pay lines. Played on the basis of two teams in red and blue the pay symbols are made up of player and fans of each team, some shirt numbers and a rather menacing fan and riot police combo. The game pays from left to right on the blue symbols and right to left on the red. Hovering your cursor over a corner of the screen reveals pay tables.
Wilds and Scatters
The wild is represented by the game logo. The Scatters are represented by a number of symbols: a pointing referee, the trophy and the football – which will trigger various bonus rounds explained below.
If the ball lands anywhere on the reels you will get a free kick. In this scenario the ball will clear its entire row thus allowing more symbols to fall into place from above. Wins here will be multiplied by 5x.
Land a referee symbol anywhere in view and a wild will be added to each corner and with these in place you will receive a free spin.
Derby Free Spins
Derby Free Spins are triggered by the trophy symbol. These trophies appear only on reel three but if you can land a stack of them there you will receive seven Derby free spins. Each time you land another trophy you will get one more spin up to a maximum of three.
Further Bonus Feature: Cascading Tifo
This bonus is triggered when 3×3 symbols land on the reels in a matching color – blue on the left and red on the right. 3 Free spins are awarded with sticky wilds added into the mix.
Playing Champions Goal is a more complicated process than most and you would be advised to check the many connotations of gambling plays available. There is a Youtube tutorial below which chronicles the gameplay. You can happily play without doing so but you may not see the 95.7 RTP claimed on that basis. The game is relatively basic in terms of presentation; there are few fancy graphic features. Irrespective of an interest in football, the game should appeal more to those with a more strategic attitude to their slot play.
