The 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup
We’ve just had the UEFA Champions League and now it’s time to tickle our footie taste buds once again with the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup. This will be the 8th one of its kind, having already been hosted in China, the USA, Canada, Germany and Sweden. This year it will be held in stadiums in nine different cities across France from 7th June until 7th July – 1 whole month of top female footie action!
The ones to watch
A total of 24 teams have qualified to participate, including first-time participant countries: Chile, Jamaica, Scotland and South Africa – will is be beginners’ luck for these newbie contenders, or will history continue to repeat itself? The USA have won the FIFA Women’s World Cup three times, including the last one in 2015, Germany won twice and Japan and Norway both triumphed one win each. OJO can’t wait to see who will come up on top.
And of course, we’ll be right behind our England team, who have qualified for the FIFA Women’s World four times, reaching the quarter-finals on three occasions! Let’s get ‘em girls!
Your turn to score a win
OJO is packed with football themed games and what better way to spend your time in between matches than having your own footie gameplay? An all-time fave of OJO’s has to be Football: Champions Cup slot from NetEnt. It’s got loads of cool extras, such as the Penalty Shootout Bonus feature where you get to try and score penalties for cash prizes and win multipliers up to 16x.
There’s also the Free Spins feature where you take on other teams with 4 rounds of Free Spins and where Wilds can award you or your opponent goals. If you get through all of the rounds, there are cash prizes up to 500x your stake up for grabs on top of your winnings. That’s one hell of a score!
Is football coming home? We’re making sure it is one way or another!
