Virgin Casino launch Sensible Soccer Euro Cup slot
The game of football has always been hugely popular, but gamblers and football fans of a certain age will remember Sensible Soccer as being the original football game which built the industry into what it is today. Available on classic gaming machines such as the Amiga, Sensible Soccer saw 22 heavily pixelated men run around a football pitch, scoring the kind of goals that the likes of Lionel Messi can only dream of.
Well, if you’re interested in a bit of heavy nostalgia, you might want to head over to Virgin Casino, as they have just launched a new slot game based around Sensible Soccer. They’ve named it ‘Sensible Soccer Euro Cup‘ – and it even includes some excellent highlight sequences taken directly from the game.
In many ways, the game is just what you’d expect it to be. Set against the background of a traditional football stadium, the symbols on the reels are all football-themed, so you can expect to find trophies, players and referred whistles while the standard card symbols are all placed on the back of a football shirt.
As far as features go, players can pick up to 20 free spins at a time and there is a Euro Cup bonus game which is activated when three bonus symbols are spun on the reels. There is also a progressive jackpot which will attract a lot of attention and this can be triggered by scoring 10 goals in a single round while playing the bonus game. Bear in mind though, that each round of the bound game consists of a home and an away leg, so this isn’t quite as daunting a task as you might initially think.
Let’s focus on the bonus game though, as it has been very well designed and is exciting to play. While the size of the prize isn’t huge, the bonus round is still very much worth playing with prizes rising to as much as 30x the size of your original bet.
The main part of Sensible Soccer Euro Cup focuses on the European Championships which will take place in Poland this summer. However, the bonus game switches the player’s attention to the Champions League where players are treated to some simulated game highlights of goals being scored and shots just missing the post – all displayed in razor sharp graphics and excellent multimedia.
The bonus game is fairly straight forward to play. Once activated, you’ll be asked to chose your team and the more games you manage to win in the Champions League, then the bigger your cash prize will be. Take your time choosing your team though, as some teams are stronger than others. If you chose a better team, then you obviously stand a better chance of reaching the later stages of the competition, but if you do that the size of your prize will be slightly lower than if you chose a less fancied team.
Each game you play will take place over two legs (just as in the real Champions League) with the action continuing every time that you mange to beat an opponent. Should you find that you’re defeated at any time, your prize money will be totalled up and added to your account before you are taken back to the main game.
