When Ash Gaming announced that they were going to release the Sensible Soccer slot game, the excitement in the Slot.uk.com office was almost uncontrollable. For many, Sensible Soccer, or Sensy Soccer as it was affectionately referred to, was the first football sports sim they will have played. Few exceptions of course, but to our knowledge it was the first game where you could create your local Sunday league team and actually create yourself to play in the game. Fair enough you were just a colour pixel, but that colour pixel was you!
This version is based on European club teams, where after you selecting your team, you then go on to take them to European cup glory. Check out the screenshots below where we took Arsenal FC to European glory.
The general theme of the game is strongly based around the classic console game from the ’90s. The Sensible Soccer slot game is a 5 reel, 25 pay-line slot featuring most of the original characters and images from the game.
The paylines are fixed in the Sensible Soccer slot… so even at playing $0.01 a coin, you’ll be paying out $0.25 at least per spin. It’s something to remember if you want to keep things low. Saying that, there’s so much going on you won’t want to go elsewhere.
Look out for one of three different Wild symbols, as they all help form winning combos and pay out big bucks. The Goalie, Fan and Ref symbols all substitute for other symbols other than the Euro Cup Trophy bonus icon and the Soccer Ball.
Three Free Spins Soccer Balls on reels 1, 3 and 5 trigger a free spins round with a difference. You get a choice of different free spins – anything from 10 to 20 – but each choice carries an extra modifier. For 10 spins (‘The Fanatic’) if the fan turns up on reel 3 he’ll turn the symbols either side of him Wild. Choose the ref symbol (‘The Banker’, awarding 15 free spins) and if he appears on reel 2 he’ll turn one or more reels Wild. Finally, pick the goalie (‘The Wobbler’) and his top-whack 20 free spins, and if he appears on reel 4 he’ll turn random symbols Wild. The ‘choice of three’ free spins is a nice addition to any game, I find, and gives you a bit more choice than just smacking the Spin button for your regular 15 freebies.
Look out for the Trophy icon, as three of those on reels 1, 3 and 5 will trigger the Euro Cup bonus feature. Here’s where the memories of that classic video game will come flooding back. Simply pick a team to follow through a tournament and win bonus cash depending on where your team finishes.
Individual teams and final positions carry their own multipliers. But there’s a progressive jackpot to be won as well. Follow the soccer matches being played during the bonus feature – if the match gets ten goals over two legs you’ll bag the jackpot!
If hitting three specific reels to trigger the bonus seems a bit tight, there’s help at hand. With the ‘Buy Bonus’ option, players can automatically go to the Bonus game simply by paying out 30x your wager. It’s a neat shortcut if you’re keen on gunning for the big wins, and just another little touch that makes Sensible Soccer: Euro Cup a definite must-play for sports slots fans everywhere.
