Worldcup Mania is a 5-reel, 15-line video slot featuring wild substitutes, free spins and a bonus game. Microgaming released Worldcup Mania in 2006 to celebrate the 2006 World Cup. You can play Worldcup Mania at River Belle Casino and Virtual City Casino.
The interesting thing about Worldcup Mania is that it is a football-themed video slot, but not all of the symbols in the game are necessarily football-related. Instead, it has more of a World Cup party sort of a theme. Symbols in the Worldcup Mania video slot are the whistle/referee scatter symbol, the ball wild symbol, free kick trophy bonus symbol, foghorn, cupcake, beer/hot dog, football boots, hamburger, pizza, a pair of tickets and fries. The video slot has background sound effects of a football match. You can mostly hear the crowd as you spin the reels in Worldcup Mania. Here is what the video slot looks like:
To play Worldcup Mania, you must first set a wager. You can choose your coin value between $0.01, $0.02, $0.05, $0.10, $0.20, $0.25, $0.50 and $1. Then you have to pick out how many paylines (up to 15) and how many coins you wish to bet per line (up to 5). You have a full range of betting options available to you in Worldcup Mania, with the maximum bet of $75 per spin. If you wish to play the maximum bet at your coin value, hit “Bet Max.” To spin the reels using your current settings, use the “Spin” button. If the game moves too slowly for you, you can always go into options and turn “QuickSpin” on.
If five flaming ball wild symbols appear on an active payline in the Worldcup Mania video slot, you will win the game’s 7500 coin top jackpot. The wild symbol will substitute for all symbols in Worldcup Mania except for the scatter symbol and bonus symbol.
Win 10 free spins at a 10X multiplier by hitting 3, 4 or 5 referee/whistle scatter symbols anywhere on the reels. All of your wins during the free spins feature will be tripled. You can re-trigger free spins during the free spins feature. Scatter wins are multiplied by the total bet. All bets and paylines played in free spins are the same as the game that started the free spins feature. Scatter wins are added to payline wins. All wins pay left to right except for scatters, which pay any. Only the highest win will be paid out per selected line. All wins are multiplied by the credits staked per line except for scatters.
If you three or more free kick bonus symbols appear on Worldcup Mania’s reels, you will trigger Worldcup Mania’s bonus game. In the bonus game, you will be taken to a static screen of a goalkeeper in mid-air, trying to protect the goal. The game will have ten targets. You can pick three. Each target will have a hidden prize. If you triggered the bonus game with 3 bonus symbols, you can win from 36-1500 coins. If you triggered it with 4 symbols, you can win from 48-2000 coins. If you triggered it using all 5 symbols, you can win from 60-2500 coins. Bonus wins are not multiplied by 3. You can trigger the bonus game during free spins. Wins shown in the bonus game have already been multiplied by the line bet. Your bonus wins will be added to any payline wins you receive. Here is a screenshot of the Worldcup Mania bonus game:
In expert mode, you can take advantage of Worldcup Mania’s autoplay feature if you wish. Advanced settings in autoplay are the number of spins (5, 10, 25, 50, 100, 250 and 500) and to stop if a win exceeds or equals ($100, $500, $1000, $5000 or $9999). The autoplay feature will stop if you trigger any feature in Worldcup Mania. You can cancel the autoplay feature at any time.
While Worldcup Mania is nothing extraordinary, we feel it is a decent enough video slot. This is largely due to the fact that the game is now four years old at the time of this writing. The game has a free spins feature with a multiplier, a bonus game (as simplistic as it may be) and a 7500 coin top fixed jackpot. That’s all a lot of people can ask for in a video slot.
