Euro Reels is a slot based around the global game of soccer, featuring a whole host of images and symbols related to the game. From the title, you might have guessed that the game has a European focus and this is shown by the five different footballs on the reels each being based on a European national team.
You’ll find two distinct bonus games – one where you try and beat the keeper and score as many penalties as possible, the other a free spins bonus round with plenty of free games.
This soccer themed slot has five reels, each reel showing three symbols when they come to a stop. The slot pays from left to right and has a total of 9 win lines, although players can opt for a fewer number of lines.
There is little doubt about the most valuable symbol in the game. This is the golden trophy, a football player in action stood proudly atop the trophy. Hit this symbol five times in a row on a pay line and you’ll win an incredible 15,000 coins, while even four in a row is worth 1,500 coins (the third highest pay out in the entire game). This symbol is also very unusual in the fact that even if it simply lands on reel one, you are guaranteed a 3 coin pay out.
Next on the pay table is a football stadium, the top of the stands the same green color as the pitch, which has a maximum win amount of 2,500 coins. Football boots, gloves and the referee’s red and yellow cards and whistle complete the standard symbols alongside five footballs. Each of these footballs are in different colors, representing different strips from European nations.
The wild symbol shows a group of four footballers huddled together. This symbol doesn’t pay any wins by itself, but will substitute for any other symbol, giving you more opportunity of that big win, especially when it lands amongst a series of the high paying trophy symbol.
The first of the bonus features is activated by landing the ‘penalty kick’ bonus symbol three times or more on an active pay line. This will now take you to the ‘Euro Reels Euro Cash Cup’ where you’ll have the opportunity to take five penalty kicks. The more goals you score, the more cash you win. However, the moment you miss one, the bonus feature is over.
The second of the bonus features is a free spins feature which is activated by landing the scatter symbol three times or more across any of the reels. This scatter is represented by a football showing the flags of various European nations. Land the minimum three scatters and you’ll find yourself with 15 free spins but it can get much better than that. Four scatters land you 30 free spins, while the maximum 5 scatters sees you end up with a massive 40 free spins. The even better news is the fact that this feature can be retriggered, as landing three or more scatters again will simply see additional spins added to your existing total.
This game is played out against the backdrop of a football stadium, with the player facing the goal, where the reels are hosted. Either side of the goal you’ll see a draped blue European flag complete with a series of golden stars, while a similar blue football scarf hosts the title of the game above the goal. Graphically, the game is solid without ever really hitting the heights of some of the slots found online today, although the variety of symbols do make for a very colorful game. Each time you hit spin you are met by a chanting crowd – this is effective at first, but will soon have you reaching for that mute button.
Euro Reels is a slot that will certainly appeal to football fans. With just nine win lines, you’ll find a slightly different experience than found at many online slots – some will like more action than this, while others might enjoy the ‘more spins for your money’ aspect. With two bonus features, there is more than enough to get your teeth into. The penalty kick feature is a fun one, while the free spins bonus round offers up a really good number of spins, especially if you land all five scatters. All in all, this might make for an enjoyable ninety minutes.
