Top Strike Championship is powered by NextGen Gaming – it comes with 5 reels and 20 paylines. Playable from 20p to £50 a spin on all devices, this football themed offering comes with a Free Games feature where you can play with up to 20 free spins, a Triple Bet Bonus feature where you get access to the Knockout Stage Bonus feature where you pick winners in each of the 4 rounds to win cash prizes.

Visually, Top Strike Championship has cartoon style graphics and is played inside a football stadium. Symbols on the reels include A, K, Q, J and 10 playing cards as well as 3 players (a goalkeeper and 2 strikers). The football with the flags around it is the wild and replaces all symbols bar the scatter – it’s also the most rewarding symbol giving you 125 times your stake for 5 across a payline.

The central feature is the Free Games feature which is played when you get 3 or more Top Strike Championship scatters anywhere on the reels – 3, 4 or 5 of them will give you 10, 15 or 20 free spins respectively. You cannot retrigger the feature but there’s access to 2 more bonus features if you’re lucky. 1 more thing – the symbols are worth more than in the base game.

Look out for Golden Tickets landing on reel 5 during a free spin – when you get 1 of them, the Treble Bet Bonus feature is activated. You then pick 3 of 6 teams to construct your Treble Bonus feature. You will then get cash prizes on the winning teams you choose.

If all your choices win, you will trigger the Knockout Stage Bonus feature – the goal (excuse the pun) is to pick a winner in each of the 4 rounds. If you win the round, you move onto the next round (and so on). Each round you win will give you a cash prize.

Top Strike Championship is a simple slot – it’s more Championship than Champions League in my opinion and doesn’t offer anything new or exciting. I much prefer playing Foxin’ Wins Football Fever from NextGen Gaming or Bicicleta from Yggdrasil Gaming which offer more in the ways of features and volatility.
