Top 5 sports slots online
Football: Champions Cup
Football: Champions Cup slot was released by NetEnt around the European Football Championship 2016 and pleased a lot of football lovers back then. At the beginning of the gameplay, you have to pick a flag of the country that you would usually support and or just opt for the surprise option if you're not a major fan of any team. The game symbols are all suitably fitting items like football t-shirts, boots, gloves, whistles and cups as well as the ball itself. You can also benefit from normal Wilds, Scoring Wilds and Overlay Wilds. The biggest highlight of the slot is without any doubt the Penalty Shootout Game which is a "pick and click" type of feature. You pick a position and try to score a goal while getting a nice multiplier ranging from x1 to x16. There is also the Free Spins Bonus Tournament round that takes players through the traditional knockout stages of the football Championship, with each free spin acting as a separate football match. If you manage to get to the top 3 places you will receive x20, x100 or x500 bet multiplier respectively. This medium volatility slot pays a maximum possible jackpot of £105,175 and has a very decent RTP of 96.82%.
Another EURO 2016 football release was the slot from Yggdrasil Gaming called Bicicleta. For those not too familiar with football terms, Bicicleta means the overhead bicycle football kick made famous by Zlatan Ibrahimovic in 2012. You can more or less see what the move looks like on the game logo. Bicicleta slot presents you with the football stadium background and cheers and roars of excited fans as a soundtrack. The main symbols of the game are the four football players with cartoonish haircuts and the usual card suits - clubs, hearts, diamonds and spades styled with the football pattern. Feature wise the game is rather simple - you have wilds that substitute the other symbols and provide the biggest possible payouts. Free Spins mode can give you a maximum of 24 free spins. During the free spins round the 4 players will try to score a goal - if they manage, their symbols turn into sticky wilds and stay on the reels. Watch out for the trophy symbol which can reward you with more free spins and cash prizes as well as the whole sticky wild reel. The game is quite volatile and can end up paying you out the maximum possible jackpot of £95,000.
Frankie Dettori's Magic 7
Horse lovers and Ascot fans unite to try the Playtech's slot Frankie Dettori’s Magic Seven based on the achievements of the Italian-born jockey Frankie Dettori and the famous event when he won 7 races in Ascot in 1996. The game might look slightly outdated but it has a lot of features and cute video cutouts from the actual event. The game comes with 5 reels and 25 paylines and the symbols including the horseshoe, the view of Ascot, the golden winner's cup and 3 pictures of Frankie’s face. The highest win in the game is x7,777 your stake - to land this amount you will need to score 5 Wild Symbols with happy Frankie celebrating his victory. The game also has an entertaining Pick Me Racetrack Bonus which takes players to the separate screen with 20 sections of the Ascot, that you need to pick and choose to find out what kind of cash prizes (from x1 to x5 your stake) and multipliers (from x1 to x7) you've won here. 3 scatter symbols activate the Free Spin Games - you'll have t choose one of the three horses and depending on how well it performs in the race, you receive 10, 15 or 35 free spins.
Maybe the idea of mixing the gladiators and coliseums theme with football didn't occur to you, but Novomatic game developer managed to come up with it just in time for the EURO 2016. The game features four real football stars - Robin van Persie, Rio Ferdinand, Andrea Pirlo and Toni Kroos rocking in the gladiator ring. At the beginning of the game, you can enjoy a pretty cool video featuring the massive coliseum arena, football players and some beasts they need to fight. The style of the slot combines the old and new with very high-quality graphics and design. In this 5 reels, 25 paylines slot you can enjoy quite a few unique features. One of them is a special Battle Bonus Feature, where you play the part of one of the footballers on the arena having to fight the monsters by smashing their faces. This interactive feature is a lot of fun and slightly violent since the harder you hit the beast the more Credits and Bonus Multipliers you will receive. Another feature is the Chariot Race Bonus - in this part the football players go for a race on the chariot racetracks against dark knights to win some Free Spins and Multipliers. The maximum win for the football gladiators is 100,000 coins.
The last slot that made it to our list is finally not related to football, but the good old-fashioned vintage style boxing, before the protection started being used. Fisticuffs is a NetEnt slot released in 2013 that has very cute old-school graphics and a lot of entertaining elements. The two main characters are the skinny and the fat fisticuffs boxers, who also serve as the Wild symbols along the side of the regular symbols that include bells, spit buckets, trophies, boxing stools, champions belts, gloves and training boots. When they appear next to each other on the reels diagonally or vertically they start punching and pushing each other in the different directions on the reels. Every symbol that the flying boxers touch will transform into wilds and stay on the reels while providing you with one re-spin. All of this entertaining action is accompanied by the cheerful piano music and the sounds of the cheering crowd. You have an opportunity to win a maximum jackpot of 500 times you bet or 100,000 coins.
