NetEnt Goes Ahead with Super Striker Online Pokie

Tia Winter | 23 March 2020

Swedish iGaming software developer NetEnt has confirmed that it plans to go ahead with the launch of its upcoming football-themed online pokie, Super Striker. The coronavirus pandemic might have thrown a spanner in the works, but the supplier is dedicated to keeping its players happy regardless.

Many fans and industry experts expected the developer to hold back in light of UEFA’s decision to delay Euro 2020 until 2021 amid concerns around Covid-19. However, the company is planning to steam ahead as planned, hoping to keep players’ spirits high in the face of the pandemic.

Euro 2020 Postponed

Super Striker is inspired by the popular sport of football. It is set to make its online casino debut on April 29, 2020, and was originally created to coincide with the Euro 2020 Summer European football championship.

Alas, the planned sporting event was put on hold as the coronavirus started rapidly spreading on an international scale. UEFA recently held a meeting about the issue in a bid to decide how to move forward with regards to the major contest. Ultimately, the organisation has decided to delay the tournament until next year to keep sports fans safe.

After an inquiry was made by NetEnt’s Casino team into the issue, the developer confirmed that the postponement would not delay their online pokies release. Players will soon be able to enjoy the thrilling new casino game across desktop and mobile devices, including tablets and smartphones.

Football Excitement Abounds

Much like NetEnt’s Scudamore’s Super Stakes online pokie, Super Striker will allow players to place extra bets on the outcome of their spins. The game’s Bet Slip feature allows players to choose a specific symbol to wager on. If it appears a certain number of times, you can make impressive returns on your original wagers!

The new online pokie also boast 2 different Scatters; Football Scatters and Golden Scatters. Both of these symbols could pave the way for huge payouts, and can also trigger a Free Spins feature with 5 different football-inspired levels to it. Every level contains increased multipliers for added winning potential.

Football fans might be feeling somewhat despondent at the moment in the face of Euro 2020 and other big sports events being postponed and cancelled. However, online casino software developers are dedicated to keeping players and sports fans entertained regardless. Be sure to keep a lookout for NetEnt’s latest online pokie and you definitely won’t miss out!
