Pilot Cup Review
Soccer (or football, for those of you who live in Blighty), is the world’s most popular sport. And that’s no surprise, given that we’ve been dribbling for some 3,000 years.
Greenland is the only country without a FIFA-recognized team because it’s impossible to grow grass on their frozen tundra, so they can’t have soccer fields.
Back in the bad old days, we used to kick animal skins, skulls, and bladders around. No wonder aliens don’t want anything to do with us.
OK, that’s enough random facts about the game, let’s get into Pilot Cup from Gamzix.
This is a crash game for people who like to play with balls. And by that, I mean dudes who are into soccer but feel free to interpret my comment in whichever way works for you. I’m not here to judge.
Crash games work in the following way: you’ll see an X and Y axis, rather than the reels that you’d see on a slot. You’ll need to place an initial bet before the animation kicks the ball, and there’s a cut-off so you’ll have to jump on this if you wanna be in on the action.
The multiplier value increases as the ball floats through the air, and your job is to cash out before the ball explodes (because when it does, you’ll lose your stake). The longer the ball travels, the more moolah you make – duh.
If you’re feeling particularly adventurous, you can place a second bet which could bail you out if your first bet fails.
Crash games typically offer a decent RTP, and Pilot Cup is no different – the Return To Player here is 96.5%. The volatility rate is low, meaning the max win on this game is limited to €7,500.
The good news for crypto and fiat players is that you can do your thing in the currency of your choice. As you’ll be able to tell just by looking at the game, you can also automate your bets and cash-outs.
Another cool aspect is that you can click on the headers in the column to the left (BETS, HISTORY, MY BETS, RECORDS), giving you some additional info.
Crash games typically have no features, and this one’s no exception. But we’re cool with that.
I played Pilot Cup on both my phone and laptop, and I also used two different browsers (Safari and Chrome). I dig crash games, so it wasn’t a hardship for me to put it through its paces. This game didn’t set a foot wrong over hundreds of rounds.
The only thing I noticed was that the game needed to reconnect if I moved across to another application, so do bear that in mind.
Alrighty, so the max multiplier is 300x, and the betting starts at €0.10 and is capped at €25. If you crunch the numbers (25 x 300), you’ll see that the most you can win is €7,500.
That’s not exactly a king’s ransom. BitStarz’s Original Crash game (yes, I know how this sounds) offers a max win of €100,000. And yes, the volatility rate on the latter is high, so that does affect the top prize.
Pilot Cup is a game you can take on the go with you as it looks pretty damn sweet on a mobile phone, but you’ll want to play in portrait mode.
The X-Y axis is at the top of the screen, and the two betting options are underneath. This makes it easy to see what’s going on and the controls and betting options naturally fall under your thumb.
So, here’s a great aspect of Pilot Cup – it’s a provably fair game, and that means you can check on the validity of the Random Number Generator to assure yourself that things are on the up and up.
To find this function, click on the hamburger menu on the top right. There you’ll see “Fair Play” (all you Brits out there will resonate with this expression).
I guess the only things you’ll need to figure out are: are you happy with the soccer theme and the volatility/max win?
