A look at some fun casual games
Although the spring is upon us, we still have quite a few rainy days to endure until summer finally comes. While dedicated fans will not be scared away from their favourite teams' games in the field, playing ball outside is a completely different matter. If you, like so many of us, don't think fondly of running around on a half-frozen field kicking a ball in the rain, you might want to save your strength and spend your spare time playing with a few fun casual games instead. And with the games below, you can still express your fondness of the most popular sport in the world: football.
Football: Champions Cup™
Football: Champions Cup™ was released last summer, mere weeks before the kickoff of the 2016-2017 UEFA Europa League's qualifying matches started. It has accompanied Wintingo players across the qualifying stages and into the winter and the Round of 32. During the break at the beginning of March, Football: Champions Cup has provided relief for those craving a bit of football action before the start of the Round of 16.
The game comes with features aimed at football fans, with the possibility of selecting their nation's selection out of the 24 participants included, and a Penalty Shootout Bonus meant to put some extra quids in their pockets.
"Shoot" is one of the longest-running football magazines in the UK. As you might expect, the Wintingo slot machine with the same title (minus the exclamation mark) pays an homage to this publication - especially its past editions from the golden age of football. The reels of the game bear the pictures of some of the greatest players in football history - Pelé, Best, and Maradona, among others - while its side games and special features remind players of the times when collecting stickers and placing them in the magazine's dedicated appendix was their favourite pastime.
Football Star was released in the wake of the 2014 FIFA World Cup. At first, it seemed that it was just another attempt to jump on the football bandwagon - it was the World Cup, after all, with all eyes on the stadiums of Brazil. Yet it has proven to be a successful format later, showing that the Wintingo - and all other gaming venues featuring the game - has many players with a taste for football.
Football Star is a generic football-themed slot machine, with the player symbols on its reels not wearing any of the distinctive logos - or colours - of any team. Perhaps this is one of the reasons why it's so popular among football-loving slot machine fans: it is a tribute not to a team but to the sport as a whole.
