Microgaming to Release 11 Champions™ Slot
11 Champions™ is a soon-to-be-released slot created by Gameburger Studios exclusively for Microgaming. The game will be going live at Mummys Gold Casino on the 2nd of June 2020 and is a Football-themed extravaganza. There are several great features available, including the Blazing Wild Streak™, the Horizontal Action Reel™, 4 Jackpots, a Pick Bonus, and a fun Customisation feature.
This online and mobile casino game will make players feel the thrills of being inside a first-rate stadium in the most prestigious sports event of all, the Euro 2020 Football tournament. The game places them squarely on the field, dribbling, passing, and shooting for goals.
The reel-set is a standard one, with 3 rows and 5 reels spinning across 20 fixed paylines. Players will need at least 3 matching symbols to receive a payout.
A Scintillating Sports Theme
What immediately sets 11 Champions™ apart from the many slots making use of this popular theme is the dynamic gameplay. This sets the striker in centre place and the player can move around the field, making passes and scoring Multipliers.
Gameburger Studios did a great job with the sound effects and these truly evoke the atmosphere of a match being played at an actual arena. Video effects unfold when wins get scored, and the biggest of these gets a particularly bombastic animation, with coins gushing out of the bottom of the screen.
The Wild is an image of the back of a player with the word emblazoned across it and these can come Stacked on full and multiple reels. There aren’t huge wins in the base game because of the many Multipliers and Extras that increase returns in other parts of the title. In terms of value, however, the highest-paying icon is the shirt with the No. 7 on it, which pays out 8.74X the triggering bet for 5, then it’s the medal, which rewards players with 7.5X their wager. After that comes the boots with 5X the bet, and then gloves with 3.75X the player’s stake.
Soccer-Themed Special Features
There are several outstanding bonus features available in 11 Champions™. They’re all activated when the Champion attachment appears on any icon, starting on the bottom centre on the reels and changing its position depending on what winning outcomes occur.
The Action Reel™ determines how the Blazing Wild Streak™ feature will reflect on the gameplay. There are 4 plays possible, the 1st being a blank blue field which will leave the player in their current position. The red field is the Dribble action, and this will move the player randomly to a new position adjacent to their current one. The orange button governs Passes, and this will move the player to a position which is remote from the one they’re currently occupying. Shoot is the green field, and this is the key to Blazing Wild Streak™ that comes with a Multiplier.
When the Blazing Wild Streak™ is triggered, 11 Champions™ awards 1 respin and all positions that have been marked by a frame due to the player Dribbling, Passing, or Shooting will turn Wild. Each payline win will get Multiplied by the amount shown on the Shoot symbol.
The bonus symbol triggers the 11 Champions™ Jackpot Bonus section of the game and it can only land on the middle 3 reels. Things start with 12 cards appearing on the screen, each one associated with 1 of the 4 Jackpot tiers, Grand, Major, Minor, and Mini. Should a player Pick 3 cards associated with any 1 of these, they’ll win that prize.
