Update 08/06/2016: You can now play the Euro Golden Cup mobile slot over at Leo Vegas mobile casino and enjoy all the action.
Genesis Gaming have announced that their Euro Golden Cup slot will be out for general release on June 8th 2016. Will they be able to compete with all the other football slots?
Is the EUFA European Championship around the corner? We hadn’t noticed, what with the deluge of football slots hitting our mobile casinos screens.
First you have NetEntertainment, bringing out their Football Champions Cup slot, which to be honest, was only about average.
Then you have Microgaming, who are turning their popular Shoot slot mobile, also out June 8th.
That’s some heavy competition for Genesis Gaming who are not half the size of the two game studios mentioned above.
Can they compete with these big behemoths in igaming? You’ll be surprised in our answer actually.
Before we start telling you what to think, here’s a little sneak peek slot video of the game so you can start making up your own mind.
That’s the nice thing about Genesis Gaming slot previews. Whilst some would be happy to simply give us a little teaser of what to expect, they pretty much give us almost everything we’d need to actually write a mobile slot review.
Which we won’t, of course, till June 8th. But we probably could.
Bet you weren’t expecting us to say that, now were you?
And whilst the graphics in this Euro Golden Cup slot aren’t that much better than NetEnt, sticking to generic symbols, Genesis have made a little bit more of an effort.
It’s not every day you see crazy faced footballers looking like they might murder you in your sleep. And the animations and sounds when you make a ‘great play’ (ie. win big or win a bonus game) kinda get your heart racing.
There’s a bit more of the football ‘edge of your seat’ excitement you get when your team play.
That depends on a couple of things; namely your age.
The reason for that is that the Shoot mobile slot undoubtedly has one of the greatest football themes around. And no we are not going mad and contradicting ourselves.
Basically, all the images are taken from Shoot! magazine, but instead of sticking with current players, they use archived images of the great footballers of yesteryears.
Which is clever of Microgaming in one way, because who knows if we will remember Eden Hazard as being an all time great, but Pele and Maradona are already legendary.
The problem is that if you’re only a little bit into football, or born sometimes after 1985, you might have no clue who these 70s and 80s footballers are, and you might not care enough to want to play.
And so Genesis Gaming and their Euro Golden Cup video slot comes back into the fold as the next football slot contender.
We can talk themes till the cows come home, but ultimately how this slot plays on your Android or iPhone will ultimately decide whether you stick to it or not.

And whilst we said we could probably review this Euro Golden Cup mobile slot before it’s general release come June 8th… we won’t.
Because we don’t like to be wrong, and this little game studio have surprised us enough time to give them a chance to play the slots because passing judgements.
Sound familiar? It should. Because…
The first, the Ragnarok slot game, was a little slow for our taste. Not bad per say, it’s just that it didn’t get really good till you unlocked all 3 features, which can get expensive.
The Jason’s Quest slot improved on the concept slightly, if only because the theme made things feel a little livelier. Though, much like Ragnarok, you need all 3 features unlocked to really get the heat going.
We suspect that this Euro Golden Cup slot machine will have the same problem, but might still improve enough on the idea to move things along a little faster.
That’s how it will improve on the original concept.
Two flags on screen will give you a token, so instead of feeling you are randomly being given token based on how much you are spending, there’s a little more chance element here.
Equally, the first two features you unlock are the free spins, which only get more interesting the higher the levels you get to. Which will make things a little more interesting as you’ll get big wins sooner rather than later.
And yes, we are aware that the shootout penalty click me game is practically identical to NetEnt’s Football Champions Cup slot, but we are going to pretend that’s more because there’s only so much that happens in a football game.
Because ‘copying’ is such a harsh word, and we suspect Genesis have had this game for a few months in production, so they didn’t necessarily know about NetEnt.
Considering that Genesis is one of the smaller video slot game providers, they are incredibly popular at several great mobile casinos.
The one that consistently give Genesis pride of place, and place their games first, is Guts casino.
They have a wide range of games, 100 free spins with no wagering requirements, £€$300 in bonuses and, exclusively for LuckyMobileSlots.com readers, 10 free spins on Piggy Riches when you sign up.
Because if you’ve got to wait till the 8th to play this game, you might as well get a little freebie in the mean time.Start Playing at Guts »
