Over the years we have seen countless video slots based on football, but Elk Studios Champions Goal slot may be the most exciting I have ever encountered. The game puts you right on the pitch in a huge stadium, with pumping music and bright lights on you. Can you put the ball in the back of the net?
Champions Goal is a 5 reel, 10 payline video slot that puts you right into a huge championship football match between the red and blue clubs, and the fans on both sides are very rowdy. The game's presentation is very sharp and includes the following symbols: 8, 9, 10, 11, red female fan, red male fan, blue female fan, blue male fan, a police officer and a hooligan, a flare, and a title wild symbol. There are also footballs, a referee, and a championship trophy that can come up at any given time to award extra minutes to the game's bonus round.
The main feature in the game is the match bonus, which is set off when three stacked trophies are unveiled on the reels. The mode then gives off free spins throughout the time intervals of the match, and players can uncover footballs that wipe the reels, and earn sticky wilds on the corners with the referee symbol. There is also a "tifo" free spins feature that is triggered if either the first or last three reel symbols are completely filled with one club's colours.
Having spent some time playing Champions Goal, I have to say that this slot is very good at putting you right in the action and making things very exciting as the features ramp up. The game's music and graphics do a lot to add to the experience, and the deep feature set makes sure that you are on the edge of your seat, as you're never really quite sure when the next big win is on the horizon.
