NetEnt’s upcoming Super Striker™ slot filling up the void of EURO 2020
Euro 2020 has been the inspiration source of NetEnt’s upcoming Super Striker™ slot and the difference between the game and the football tournament is that the game won’t be cancelled. Unfortunately, due to the coronavirus pandemic, UEFA decided to postpone EURO 2020 by 12 months. The same doesn’t go for the Super Striker™ slot which will be launched on the 29th April as planned, bringing a multi-level Free Spins feature, a Golden Multiplier feature, and the Bet Slip feature.
Euro 2020 en Covid-19
First identified in December 2019 in Wuhan China, Covid-19 doesn’t seem to slow down with many countries experiencing a partial or full lockdown. I myself got stuck on an island in Indonesia where things got out of hand really fast as Indonesian and Malaysian people decided to gather together for a praying session with 16.000 people attending. Don’t ask me why, but they did with a serious wave of infections and an inevitable lockdown in Malaysia as the result while the Indonesians were asked to distance socially to slow down the spread.
Before we even realized, airports and borders in Europe closed while travelling between Asian countries came to a halt and more and more airlines cancelled their flights. With 4 to 5 flights and the missing guarantee we would make it home before the big lockdown, we found ourselves a place to hide for the time being.
But no matter where we are in the world, in what country we are quarantined or locked down, social events are not going to happen anytime soon with all events being postponed. This means we have to wait for the concert we’ve been waiting for so long, and that birthday party you planned, it’s going to be a lonely one. I hope you didn’t forget to cancel the clown!
We all have an event or several events we looked forward to, but there’s this one event that involves millions of people who now have to wait until next year before they find out which country is the best football country in Europe right now. Earlier this week, UEFA announced the postponement of its flagship competition, EURO 2020, as a result of the COVID-19 emergency.
The health of all those involved in the game has the priority while the organization doesn’t want to place any unnecessary pressure on national public services involved in staging matches. Besides, the domestic competitions are currently on hold due to the COVID-19 emergency, and priority is given to completing domestic competitions.
Upcoming Super Striker™ slot
No EURO 2020 this year, but NetEnt is giving you something to look forward anyway in which you can release your football anxiety piled up in the past months. Introduced in Scudamore’s Super Stakes™, the Bet Slip feature is returning to the reels in the by Euro 2020 inspired video slot that will be released on the 29th April.
Unlike most of the video slots launched by NetEnt, the football slot is offering a 3×3 grid featuring multi-level Free Spins, the Golden Multiplier feature and the Bet Slip feature. Striking a Golden Scatter in the main game awards an instant win, while a hat-trick of three Scatter symbols activates 5-level Free Spins with an increasing Level Multiplier.
During the Free Spins feature, activated when 3 Football Scatters land on the reels, you’ll collect Golden Scatter symbols, with each adding to the total win and resetting the number of Free Spins. Collect 9 Golden Scatters to advance to the next level as there are 5 different levels of Free Spins, each with an increasing Multiplier. Each time you advance to the next level or at the end of Free Spins, you’ll hear the roar of the crowd and you’ll get a big win.
The Bet Slip is a side bet that adds another layer of excitement to the action and allows you to select a symbol, number of spins and the Bet. Get it right and you and your team will both win big. The game is still on as soon as the Super Striker™ slot is available at the NetEnt Casinos.
