Top Trumps Football Stars Slots

Top-Trumps-Football-StarsFootball Stars gives you a soccer themed slot machine. It was created by Playtech and it’s part of the Top Trumps series, where you will also find Football Legends and Celebs. In each case, the design of the symbols is similar to that of a collectible card, with the photo of the player, the flag of his country, the name and the national team he was a part of all included on the same image. It takes the form of a match between two national teams, which you can change. The two teams you pick will contribute with their players on the reels, in the form of symbols.

The Football Stars version of Top Trumps gets 5 reels with 15 bet lines on them. Among the best features offered you will find the bonus feature Pass The Ball, a free games round, a scatter symbol and the wild. Payout wise the game does more than OK, offering up to $500,000 (10,000x).

Features of Top Trumps Football Stars

As its top features, Football Stars includes the wild on the first place, followed by the scatter that gives you the free spins, the bonus game and the prize awarding scatter symbol.

The Wild is a rather regular apparition, using a symbol with a Wild Logo with stars in the background. The wild is the one to give away the biggest prize available inside, worth 10,000x the line wager. It also substitutes for regular symbols, meaning that there are four feature symbols that are not influenced by it. It also doesn’t take part in mixed combinations, where multiple members of the same team award prizes.

The Game Logo gets the scatter role, but it only does half of the usual job of a symbol such as this. It is capable of appearing in random locations and it will offer prizes as it does so. Between 2 and 5 Logos on the reels will trigger a prize worth 1x to 125x the wager.

Free Games Feature

The free games feature can be triggered by two different scatter symbols. Both of them are flags of the countries which have been selected. You need two matching Flags on the 1st and 5th reels during the same round, to get 12 free spins. These free spins will offer you only the members of one national team on the reels, so with a smaller number of symbols you should have a lot more chances to get a winning combination.

Pass The Ball

This is an interesting feature, where a Football symbol can appear either on the 2nd or 4th reels, and it will trigger a prize as long as there is a football player to its immediate left or right, respectively. The prize is worth 3x the value of the round bet and it’s offered for each example of that specific player symbol that is present on the reels.


Betting options and jackpots

In order to get the slot’s biggest prizes, you also have to bet big on each line you want activated. The lines allows for up to 10 coins to be used, with the denominations reaching $5 at their highest. It means a line bet of up to $50, with the total wager being at $750. As for the smallest bets, they can be as small as $0.01, so you are free to change them as you see fit.

The best payouts are those offered by the wild symbol, the jackpot being the equivalent of 10,000 line bets. It can be up to $500,000 cash, or it can be as little as $100, depending only on the wager you made.

Design and symbols

While some parts of the design are quite boring (I’m looking at you, playing cards), the actual symbols with the football stars should be a pleasure to get if you’re a fan of football. Some of the sport’s best players are present, even though some of them have retired in the meantime. You get names like Ronaldo, Riquelme, Zidane, David Beckham and so on, the symbols depending on the two football teams that you choose. The 8 teams that are part of the game and which contribute players are Brazil, Argentina, Spain, Italy, Germany, France and England. The Home Team will pay left to right, while the Away team symbols pay from right to left.

Symbols: Wild Logo (wild, 10,000x), Top Trumps Logo (scatter, 125x the bet), Football (bonus), Free Games Logo (scatter), Player 1 (5,000x), Player 2 (1,000x), Player 3 (500x), Ace (300x), King (300x), Queen (200x), Jack (200x), 10 (100x) and 9 (100x).


Is It Worth Playing?

Since there are so many big teams covered by the game, you can play a game of slots where you favorite players go against their biggest rivals, or against the world champion. It’s up to you, but it should be a fun game as long as you enjoy football.

Top Trumps Football Stars can be found at any Playtech casino, where you get a chance to play it for real money or in free mode.
