Set in a maximum capacity stadium is where you’ll find the reels of the Euro Golden Cup slot game. Speakers and flood lights surround the machine and you can hear the football fans chanting in the stands. The reels of the game have been designed to look like a real green turf football pitch. Beneath the reels are seats and the control panel. Adjust the options to get to your desired bet.
Symbols on the reels represent four footballers; Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi and two other fierce looking chaps. There are no card values like other Genesis Gaming slots, instead you have football shirts with the numbers; 9, 10, 11, 12, 13 and 14 – to represent squad numbers. You will also find a ref’s whistle and a football on the reels.
To get your hands on the 1,000 coins on offer, you will have to trigger the bonus features. Base game wins however, dish up a maximum of 40x your stake. Land five of a kind of the blonde-haired footballer and you will see your stake multiply by 40x its current value.
High value symbols include Messi and the two unidentified footballers – both award 30x your stake, but Cristiano Ronaldo comes in fourth with a 20x multiplier for matching five symbols on your active payline. The more you spend per spin, the more these symbols will be worth to you in cash.
Back of the Net
You will find many complicated features to get your head around, but the wilds (football) and scatters (whistle) are easy enough to grasp. Collect trophies to unlock different features.

Top of the Table
Euro Golden Cup slot game is a must for football fans, because it allows you to take in the atmosphere of a packed stadium from the comfort of your arm chair. The medium variance slot does what it should – thrown up regular base game wins to keep your bankroll topped up. In our opinion, the most cash is offered via level 3 – these features may seem complicated at first, but once you play and trigger them, they will soon become easier to understand. The graphics may be a little basic, but the winning potential more than makes up for this.
