For all the dedicated fans of football out there, Microgaming released 11 Champions, a game that will keep you on your toes just like a real football match. It has 5 reels, 3 rows, and 20 ways for the player to land a winning combination. The provider did not slack on the features as well, contributing to the excitement. It is definitely a game worth taking a look at.
Anyone who has ever been to a game, or even watched one, knows the thrill that is felt in supporting your favorite team. The provider managed to transfer that same thrill into this game, not just with the design, but with the features as well. They provided one of the better football-inspired games currently on the market.
The background is, of course, the green stadium with the reels made to look like the scoreboard that pops up during regular football games. There is of course the happy crowd dressed in blue and cheering their team on from the bleachers. The soundtrack contributes a great deal as well since it has some cheering sound effects that make the game feel more real.
The symbols are just as interesting as what goes on behind them. There are the lower-paying symbols represented by the regular card royals. The higher-paying ones include footballs, gloves, boots, jerseys, medals, and trophies.
With the volatility set at high, players are in for a bumpy and unpredictable ride. Players can bet anything between 0,20 and 50 coins per spin, which could have been better but can be overlooked thanks to the payouts. Players have the chance to win up to 5000 times the stake in a single spin. The RTP is fair as well and set around the average level at 95,93%.
The features have to be the most impressive part of the game. Not only are they original and creative, but they are also going to be responsible for all the amazing payouts that await you. Just like any other, this game has a wild symbol that replaces all other symbols, bar the scatter of course. It can also create its own winning combinations that are able to pay up to 2,200 times the stake for a combination of 10.
There is also the Blazing Wild Streak feature which marks a position on the field for the player to shoot from just like it would be in a real game. After that, the action reel on the top of the grid spins to give an outcome. The wild marking will either get to move to another reel, or the Respin feature will be triggered. Once the feature is triggered all the marked positions turn into wild symbols and offer multipliers up to x11.
Lastly, there is a Bonus Game which is triggered when the player lands 3 scatter symbols anywhere on the reels. They then get to play a pick and click game which decides on one of the three fixed jackpots. Once three positions of the same kind are uncovered the player is awarded with the deserved jackpot.
The game definitely managed to live up to expectations and is worthy of trying. The overall design is pretty standard which is expected from the theme used. On the other hand, the features are what is going to capture the attention of many players out there. The provider managed to deliver that real essence of the game. The graphics of the game are very good as well providing an overall amazing playing experience.
