Euro Golden Cup slot review (Genesis Gaming):
Online Slot Review:
NetEnt are you paying attention? THIS is how you make a football slot!
Genesis Gaming have come out with a future cult classic online slot here with their Euro Golden Cup slot. They really have gone over and beyond with their development. This is what we want to be seeing all the time. Instead of making a dozen crappy slots a month just take the time to make one really really good one.
This slot is jam packed with little nuggets here and there. What should I mention first? Where to start?
The football shirts:
This is probably the biggest signal of the time, care and love that has gone into this slot. It might be a small thing but some countries have their legendary football shirt numbers and Genesis have thought of this tiny detail. The blue shirt is number 10 (Italy – Baggio, Del Piero, Totti), the yellow shirt is number 9 (Brazil – Ronaldo, Tostao, Serginho) and the most obvious example is the orange shirt number 14 (Do I really need to explain this one. RIP Johan you were the greatest!).
The side bars:
The left and right hand sides of the screen feature a proper older generation football scoreboard theme. It works brilliantly.
The theme, graphics and animations:
The whole theme and graphics from the reels to the base game to the animations to the bonus rounds are all very much in the style of proper 90’s football computer games, except Genesis have brought them up to date with the modern technology. This is not FIFA 2016 graphics, this is more like a 2016 reincarnation of Sensible Soccer or ISS Pro or the 90’s FIFA games. If you are a football fan of a certain generation you will know exactly what I mean. Brilliant.
The flag system & RTP system:
The flag system, RTP system and levels is a brilliant idea, simple but really works very well.
The game play and payouts:
No matter how good a slot looks, it all boils down to how it plays and pays. And Genesis have got this spot on again. Nice and steady pay outs, variance and bonus hit frequency and lovely smooth reel action. And there is good potential for wins in this slot too. My first three feature wins for example were 10x bet, 110x bet and 40x bet. And that kind of balance is throughout the play as well as the odd decent win during base game play.
Overall slot verdict:
Top top class effort from Genesis Gaming. They must have spent a long long time developing this slot and have looked into every minute detail to make this THE perfect football slot. Brilliant.
