Of course Sensible Soccer Euro Cup Slot (what a stupid name) deals with football as its main subject but I’m not sure I like how this does it. For some reasons the guys at Ash Gaming thought Lego symbols would fit the best to the slot and made the important figures with the effect of it like referee’s whistle, players, ball, cup, stadium. I guess it doesn’t require some kind of high quality graphics and I see at other Ash products what they’re capable of so I can’t quite understand why they solved this task such way and I doubt they chose the best available solution.
Fortunately, in other segments can be seen some effort they put in that is manifested in Progressive Jackpot and lots of features. 3 Bonus symbols on the first, third and last reel get the entry to the Euro Cup Bonus game where we first have to select a team and we can follow how this participates in the Euro Cup Tournament. A draw is held to determine what team will be the opponent then 2 automatically played little football games (remind me of the look of the early video games in the 80’s) decide what team will go to the next round. Naturally, we get more cash as our selected team advances more rounds.
It would be a good side game if the player’s assistance would be involved and if it would have better view. Anyway, the Progressive Jackpot can be won here if in one of the rounds, our club would score 10 or more goals over 2 legs. Even though all the winnings here are multiplied by total bet, I still find it’s not a good rewarding side game comparing to others.
The game offers a unique possibility what I’ve never seen so far at any games, namely, we can buy a ticket for the prize of x30 of total stake to get straight to this bonus without spinning the reels. I understand winning the Jackpot is a huge thing and very tempting opportunity but I think this ‘feature’ is really killing the gaming excitement and taking away the attraction of gambling so I couldn’t be a fan of it, not for a moment.
The above mentioned bonus triggering 3 reels have another purpose – to activate free spins. After 3 Balls land on them we can choose from 3 free spin types. It’s either 15 spins and if the Banker symbol appears on Reel 2 then one or more reels turn Wild, or 10 games and if the Fanatic emblem pops in on the middle reel then all symbols on one of its side and below turn into Wild, or 20 extra games and if Wobbler arrive on the fourth reel the randomly selected symbols from all over of the screen become Wild. It’s real great options to choose from and must be some entry there to pick the best fit to our style and I usually go with the second option as I had the most success with it and because I think this adds the possible most Wild symbols to the table.
The other great feature is the slot has 3! equal Wilds giving more chance for winning combinations to be completed and finally must be mentioned the best five of a kind winning is worth 5000 coins.
I know some slots where the written functions, features don’t seem to be too generous but playing with the games I see it other way and can be satisfied with them. Unfortunately, the situation here is exactly the opposite. Despite all of these great sounding promises and possibilities, in my experience this surprisingly doesn’t reach that payout quality, level than other Ash games I’ve played with. Adding this to its questionable view and maybe you can think what I thought – ‘I guess I’ve got to choose another game’…
