Mario’s Cup will provide plenty of football action on every spin of the reels, and players can expect to come across symbols that include linesman flags, football boots, football shirts, goalkeeper gloves, referee whistles and of course the football. There is also cameo appearances in the characters of Pierluigi Collina-esque the referee, and a superstar striker and goalkeeper. The medium variance of Mario’s Cup guarantees that the slot is very fair, and players have every chance of creating some decent wins at a steady rate with some exciting spinning along the way. The prize sizes are acceptable with the top line multiplier worth x5,000 when players land five of the stadium symbol which is the wild. The wild can also replace all symbols om the reels to complete winning combinations. Players have the option in Mario’s Cup to have 1, 3, 5, 10, 15, 20 or 25 pay lines in play at any one time. However, to maximise their win potential they are best to play all 25 lines, after all you wouldn’t want to play a football match with just one player!
When it comes to wagers, the minimum is just 0.25 credits whilst the maximum is a hearty 25.00 credits per spin. There is no doubt that every football team requires that something extra to help them win the game, be it a star striker, a good decision from a referee or a stadium full of fans cheering the team on. Mario’s Cup also helps players with three bonus features that can all be activated when certain scatters land anywhere on the reels. First there is the free spin bonus, this is activated when players land 3, 4 or 5 of the free spin scatters and are then rewarded with a round of free games complete with an expanded wild symbol.
Next comes the magic spin bonus where players need to land 3, 4 or 5 of the magic scatters in the free spins bonus and doing so sees them playing a side game with Gold Cup wins which can be worth up to x3 of the players total bet. Finally, there is the juggle bonus game where players need to land 5 bonus scatters and then pick either a golf ball, a tennis ball or a football to juggle. Whilst the smallest ball is the hardest to juggle, each successful kick sees higher returns, this feature continues until Mario no longer has control of the ball.
