Personal testers opinion about Football Champions Cup pokie
I not involved in football, so it had not excited me to play on this pokie. The probability of hit any winning is 29.56%. The 59% of the prize pool is reserved for awards in the usual spins. The frequency of triggering the bonus feature is under the middle line and is 1.26% (statistically, every 79th spin triggers the bonus feature). The wagering rating is low (5,05 from 10). The only real possibility of hitting a mega winning is to "win at the tournament" during the free spins feature.
Review and recommendations from the testing team
This pokie has an interesting football theme, which immediately attracted a large number of fans.
- In the main game, the pokie often triggers winning combinations. Even though for the most part they are less than the main bet value, the pokie often gives some good combinations. Also, there is a feature for the random triggering of wild symbols, which can give pretty good winnings; and the frequency of their appearance is quite high, so it can only please the player.
- The bonus games on this pokie, as in most other games from this provider, are triggered with high frequency, or in series of several bonus games, with short intervals between bonuses and long ones between series. The bonus game here does not promise a big win and is usually much less than 100x bets, which at the maximum only compensates for the loss in balance during the main game.
- Free spin feature is triggered according to the same scenario as the bonus game, with the difference that the bonus game series are slightly larger and can be up to 4-5 bonus games in one series; and free spins are usually triggered in two series.
- The potential for free spins is much higher than the bonus game. In addition to winning combinations during spins, which give an average win of 20x - 80x total bets, we can take a position with very good winnings in the standings. The average value of free spins do not differ from the bonus game winnings, but more successful spins with a big winning that can bring 200x total bets or more.
I would recommend this pokie both for playing with real and bonus money, but with a balance of 300 total bets, enough for a possible long wait until the free spins feature.

How to win at Football Champions Cup pokie? (conclusion)
Our main recommendation is to test the pokie in demo mode before depositing real money. We believe that if you lose a lot, you can try to change the denomination (coin value). This way you can change the winning cycle. The recommended balance is 300 bets, which will be enough to catch all the bonuses of the game. Remember, the main potential is in free spins when you win the tournament. Bonuses (both types) are often in a series, so if you activate some of them, do not be in a hurry to change the game, in a very short period of time, the pokie can trigger it again. You can use the pokie for both real and bonus money play. Of course, it will be good for the more experienced to try to determine the "mood" of the pokie before you start playing.
