Top Trumps Football Stars: Sporting Legends is powered by Playtech and part of the Sporting Legends series – with 5 reels and 20 paylines, this jackpot game can be played from 20p to £20 a spin across all devices. You join the world’s greatest footballers as you’ll benefit from random wilds with respins, free spins with players turning wild and a pick me style game where you can win cash prizes and multipliers. There are also Daily, Weekly and Sporting Legends progressive jackpots to be won.
Launched just in time for the 2018 World Cup, Top Trumps Football Stars: Sporting Legends focuses on 30 of the world’s best footballers. Before you enter the game, you can choose which footballers will be the 5 highest paying symbols. The game is set at a football stadium with cheering fans as you spin the reels.
You can choose players like Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, Alexis Sanchez, Sergio Ramos, Neymar, Gareth Bale, Arturo Vidal and Wayne Rooney amongst others. The highest paying symbol is worth 25 times your stake per payline – other symbols include A, K, Q, J and 10 playing cards. The football is the wild symbol which replaces all symbols bar the Top Trumps scatter and trophy bonus – 5 on a payline will give you 25 times your stake.
The game comes with a Free Kick Respin feature that is triggered randomly on any base game spin – a football bounces a random player symbol transforms it into a frozen wild. The football then shoots towards the goal (which is above the reels) – if a goal is scored, you will get a free respin with the feature repeating. All frozen wilds remain with more free respins until a goal isn’t scored – this can result in 5 frozen wilds on the reels.
The main attraction is the Wild Free Games feature – this is played when the Top Trumps scatter appears simultaneously on reels 2, 3 and 4. Like the Free Kick Respin feature, a football is kicked onto the reels to turn a random player into a wild. A shot at goal is then taken with a goal giving you more free spins – the wild also remains locked on the reels. The free spins continue until the ball misses the goal.
Finally, there’s a Football Trophy Bonus feature which is played when the trophy bonus symbol lands on both reels 1 and 5 in the base game – you then pick 3 of the 21 Top Trumps cards to win cash prizes, cash prizes and extra picks and win multipliers. You can also reveal a Win All option which opens all cards 1 by 1!
As part of the Sporting Legends series, there are 3 progressive jackpots to win – you have the Daily Jackpot which is won every day and the Weekly Jackpot which is won weekly. The Sporting Legends jackpot is the biggest obviously – you can win any of these jackpots randomly on any spin.
Top Trumps Football Stars: Sporting Legends is a decent slot if you love your footie – the range of bonus features is decent with the Free Kick Respins feature and Wild Free Games feature being the same in reality. I like the fact you can play with plenty of locked/sticky wilds for huge wins. Saying that, you can win 500 times your stake on each spin/free spin if you fill the screen with wilds. If you like football, I would also suggest you try Bicicleta by Yggdrasil Gaming which is highly volatile.
