11 Champions Slot Ready For Kick Off
Roaring crowds, green fields, and thundering boots are the hallmarks of being a professional football player. Just like the online betting NZ offers, it’s an exhilarating way of life, and certainly very little else compares. But few will ever get the honour of experiencing this, since being a professional football player is limited to just a handful of skilled athletes. At least in the real world. A similar experience can still be enjoyed in the 11 Champions slot.
11 Champions, releasing on the 2nd June 2020, is a slot that aims to put players on the field, in the middle of the action, facing off against a world class team. The creators of the game, Gameburger Studios, partnered with Microgaming to make the concept a reality, and together the two developers went above and beyond to combine the fun of football with spinning reels. The final product is something truly unique, providing an online slots experience that certainly stands apart.
Capturing The Spirit
Gameburger Studios clearly have a few football fans in the art department, since 11 Champions is about as perfect a recreation of The Beautiful Game as could be asked for. The background simulates what it must be like to stand on the pitch, look up, and see a stadium of roaring fans stretching up to the sky. The detail is exceptional, and players can get a sense of what it’s like to pull on a pair of boots and hit the pitch in a professional game. A neat extra feature even allows the colours of player jerseys in the game to be changed.
This impressive artwork is carried over onto the reels, with a selection of symbols that tie in with the overall theme. Though, the idea seems to have been to also link the spinning reels to an active game of football, giving an impression of how the events are playing out. The highest paying symbols are a pair of goalie gloves, a pair of boots, a player’s jersey, and a champion’s medal. The low symbols are the more traditional 10, J, Q, K, and A.
There are 2 special symbols in the game, a Wild which appears as a flaming football, and a Bonus which appears as a silver trophy.
Behind the Net
11 Champions is a 5-reel 3 row game that utilises 20 paylines. It has an RTP of 95.93%, it is high volatility, and has a hit rate of 25.93%. The minimum accepted bet is 0.20 coins, and maximum accepted bet 50.00 coins.
Pass, Dribble, Shoot!
The first thing to take note of is the Action Reel, which is located above the standard reels. With each spin, both the Action Reel on the standard reels spin.
The second thing to note is 11 Champion’s most unique feature; a football player on the reels. As the game starts, the football player will be located at the bottom of the reels. But if he passes, dribbles or shoots is determined by the Action Reel. Each time the ball is passed to a new position, that position will be marked with a frame. The Action Reel will eventually indicate that the player is shooting, which will result in all marked positions turning into Wilds. An automatic respin will also occur. As can be guessed, this sequence can result in some potentially big wins, depending on how many passes are made.
A bonus jackpot system is also utilised, which is triggered by matching 3 Bonus symbols. Beside the reels on the left the amount of each possible jackpot is displayed. There is a Mini, Minor, Major and Grand jackpot. Once 3 Bonuses have been matched the player will then be presented with a new screen, upon which a grid of face down cards is displayed. The player must uncover cards one by one, until 3 match. The 3 matching cards will determine which jackpot is awarded.
Looking to Score?
11 Champions will go live at 7Sultans Casino on the 2nd June 2020. Those who are interested in trying it out can do so on mobile and desktop computer. Though a pair of football boots isn’t necessary, it certainly can’t hurt in getting into the spirit of the game!
