If you’re looking at the most promising slot machines that have something to do with the 2018 World Cup, then Top Trumps Football Stars is a great candidate for that. It’s a slot machine that Playtech seems to have spent a lot of money on, as they obtained the rights to use the image of several major players, the likes of Ronaldo and Messi appearing in real photos as the game’s symbols.
This game is going to be playable with a layout of 5 reels & 20 lines at your disposal. You can get a reward of up to $10,000 from its lines through winning combinations, but the Sporting Legends progressive jackpot is your ultimate target here. Among its features, the developer included a bonus game called Football Trophy, the Wild Free Games, as well as wilds or scatters.
Betting and Prizes
Those playing this slot machine will have a very common betting range that they can use, starting at $0.20 and taken as high as $20 by the player. You can have a wager of up to $1 per line this way.
As for the rewards offered in the game, those don’t look that interesting to be honest. The best winning combinations pay 500x, or up to $500, and even with all 20 lines occupied by similar symbols, you’re looking at a prize of only $10,000.
The game has some excellent jackpots to go with those smaller ones though, and I’m talking about the three progressives that can be triggered inside. You have the Sporting Legends as the ultimate target, coming via a random spin. There are also the Daily and the Weekly Jackpots, which can be triggered daily or weekly, respectively.
Top Trumps Football Stars Slot Features
One of the two symbols to pay the jackpot of 500x, the wild is shown in this game as a football with red wings. It is the substitute symbol, which is going to be used in all types of regular combinations. The exceptions are going to be the two scatters that trigger other features.
First, check out the Top Trumps Logo. Having it appear at the same time on the middle columns gets you the Wild Free Games. A football will be kicked to the reels, turning random players into wilds. Score a goal into the net from the top of the reels, to get more free spins. You keep playing free spins until that ball misses the net.
A bonus game called Football Trophy is available as well, and to get inside it you will need the Trophy Bonus icons showing on reels 1 and 5. All you have to do is pick from the cards displayed on the screen, and in exchange you get prizes and multipliers.
Free Kick Respins are the last ones that you can get. These involve a football once again, which is kicked into the reels to turn random player icons into additional wilds. Score a goal into the net, to get a respin where the extra wilds are sticky.
Theme & Design
It’s a football themed game that’s designed in honor of the 2018 World Cup, and it shows on its reels. There are 30 different symbols that you can choose from at the beginning, and you can get 5 of them to be used as high paying symbols. You can pick from some of the biggest names of the industry, which includes Ronaldo, Messi and many other well-known names.
Top Trumps Football Stars has among its strengths an impressive distribution of players that show up among its symbols, but also the Sporting Legends progressive jackpot.
