About the Game

The Champions starts with techno music that matches the intensity of the inevitable gameplay that you’ll experience. The 5x3 gameboard is full of high-paced action, so we’ll break down the pay table and symbol values for you.

Just like majority of games, the lowest value symbols are playing cards, but only ranging from queen to ace. The medium to high value symbols relate more to the football theme, such as: Whistle, goalkeeper gloves, boots, kits and a football. The symbol that links all these together is The Champions WILD, which substitutes for all symbols apart from the bonus scatters.

Speaking of bonuses, The Champions has some two features that can create some incredible wins. Absorb the atmosphere from the crowd and prepare yourself for the following bonus features:

  • MOMENTUM PROGRESSIVE GAME – To start playing the Momentum Progressive Game, you must land the football symbol in the target zone that is situated on the reels.

The bonus game will gradually progress in multiplier levels when you hit the target zone. For each level, you’ll start with 10 spins.

Each time you move up in levels, the number of spins resets to 10. The multiplier will increase in the following increments:

Level 1 (Starting Level) = 1x Multiplier

Level 2 = 2x Multiplier                                   Level 7 = 12x Mulitplier

Level 3 = 4x Multiplier                                  Level 8 = 14x Multiplier

Level 4 = 6x Multiplier                                   Level 9 = 16x Multiplier

Level 5 = 8x Multiplier                                  Level 10 = 18x Multiplier

Level 6 = 10x Multiplier                                 Level 11 = 20x Multiplier

When you reach level 11, you’ll need to keep hitting the target to reset the number of spins to 10. Once you run out of spins, the multiplier level is reset to level 1.

  • PENALTY SHOTS BONUS GAME – You’ll trigger this feature when you connect with 3 Flag Bonus SCATTERS. These symbols only appear on reels 2, 3 and 4.

In this feature, you are awarded 5 penalties. For each penalty, you’ll have to select one out of four targets to score. The following pay-outs are in place during this feature:

Score 5 out of 5 to hit 100x your total stake.

Score 4 out of 5 to hit 25x your total stake.

Score 3 out of 5 to hit 15x your total stake.

Score 2 out of 5 to hit 10x your total stake.

Score 1 out of 5 to hit 5x your total stake.

The Verdict

It’s clear to see why Pragmatic Play have put so much into this creation. Football themed slots aren’t as prevalent as other themes, but this title will undoubtedly propel the sport into future creations. There isn’t much to dislike about this title, you’ve got two incredible bonus features, wilds and user-friendly gameplay.

The only downside of having a progressive jackpot bonus is that the volatility of this slot can be high. But, the benefits have the potential to completely change your life.
