The Champion’s Goal game can be found at casinos offering Elk Studios software. Elk Studios are a small but quickly growing casino software developer primarily focusing on the mobile market. At the present time they only offer slots games. Players should be aware that this software provider includes ‘betting strategies’ as an automated feature. These should be avoided. They offer no mathematical gain to the player and increase the risk of large losses in comparison to your bankroll. As a standard Elk Studios do publish the RTP/House Edge information for their slots games within their game paytable. As such we can say that the House Edge of Champion’s Goal is 4.3%.
Champion’s Goal is made up of 5 reels, each one 3 symbols high. There are no paylines, instead the game works using way lines, of which there are 20 in total. Blue symbols play from left to right and Red symbols play from right to left.
Wild – The “Champion’s Goal” symbol substitutes for all symbols, except the “Ball”, “Referee” and “Trophy” symbols.
Multiplier – The “Ball” symbol triggers the game’s Multiplier.
Sticky – The “Referee” symbol triggers the game’s Sticky Bonus.
Free Spins – The “Trophy” symbol triggers the game’s Free Spin feature.
Free Kick Feature – Revealing a “Ball” symbol anywhere on the reels will trigger the game’s multiplier feature. When this happens all line wins are multiplied by 5 and the winning symbols will disappear to be replaced by new symbols, giving you another chance to win.
Sticky Corners – Revealing a “Referee” symbol will trigger the game’s Sticky Bonus. When this happens each corner of the grid will fill with a Wild symbol and will remain in place for a re-spin.
Derby Free Spin – To trigger the game’s Free Spin feature you need to land 3 “Trophy” symbols on the middle reel. When this happens you will be awarded with 7 free spins. You can gain re-spins if you land a “Trophy” symbol during the free spins, to a maximum of 3 additional spins. On your final spin you have the chance to score a “Champion’s Goal” and pick up the game’s jackpot.
Cascading Tifo – If all symbols on reels 1,2 and 3 are blue you will trigger the “Blue Cascading Tifo” bonus. If all the symbols on reels 3,4 and 5 are red you will trigger the “Red Cascading Tifo” bonus. When this happens you will gain 3 extra spins, with 3 wild’s sticking for the duration of them.
Champion’s Goal is a decent looking game but to be honest it’s world apart from some of the outstanding offerings that Elk Studio have given us. The symbols are lacking in detail and the bonus rounds are very standard, lacking in the usual imagination we’ve grown to expect form the Swedish developers. The house edge is a little on the high side, certainly much higher than most Elk Studio games. However, the game’s biggest failing is the same as every other game that Elk Studio have made. The “Advanced Betting Strategies” are sold as an advantageous game feature, when these strategies offer the player no improvement over flat betting. The reality is that if you increase your bet, you’re more likely to lose money than you are to make any. This is poor practice, and it drags everything positive about the game down. We would be highly critical of any website offering bogus betting strategies so a game developer doing this is even more problematic for us. If this was not a feature in the game I would be scoring this game much higher than I have done.
