Top Trumps World Stars

Published: 07/01/2013

Fans of international football are bound be intrigued by one of the hottest slots in Playtech’s “Top Trumps” line-up—World Football Stars. It offers all the excitement of FIFA matches, with seven top-ranked sides from which to create pairings, including Argentina, Brazil, England, France, Germany, Italy and Spain.

Once the competing teams have been selected, the first team chosen will have players paying on the reels from left to right, while the second team’s players will pay from right to left. The game uses the popular five-reel, 15-payline format. It is possible to wager in increments from €0.01 to €5.00 with as many as 10 credits per payline for a maximum bet of up to €750 per spin.

The footballers that appear on the reels depend, of course, on the teams that have been selected. When England is playing, for example, Gerrard, Rooney and Beckham are the stars. For Germany, Ballack, Matthaus and Klingman are the players. Other big names include Ronaldo, Lionel Messi, Zinedine Zidane, Raul Gonzalez and Francesco Totti, to name a few. To score a payout, the player symbols must appear on selected paylines in winning combinations of from two to five symbols.

Three, four or five “mixed” players on the same team also pay 10X, 60X or 120X times the line bet, respectively. The top player on each side is worth 5X, 100X, 500X or 5000X in combinations of 2, 3, 4 or 5. Additional winning combinations can be formed by matching card symbols—Aces, Kings, Queens, Jacks, Tens or Nines—with values of 5X to 300X for three to five matches.

A Wild Stars symbol is available on each of the five reels, too. It substitutes for any player or card symbol to form a winning combination other than mixed players. When 2, 3, 4 or 5 Wild Stars appear on a winning line, they multiply the payout by 10X, 200X, 100X or 10000X, respectively.

Top Trump Logos are the scatter bonus symbol for the World Stars slots. They pay 1X, 5X, 25X or 125X, respectively, whenever 2, 3, 4 or 5 of them appear anywhere on the reels. Payouts are multiplied times the entire bet and added to any line wins.

One of the exciting features of Top Trumps World Stars is its “Pass the Ball Bonus.” This is triggered whenever the “Bonus Ball” lands on reel 2 or reel 4 adjacent to one of the footballers on the first or last reel. At this point, the ball is passed between players of the same team, rewarding 3X the total wager for each player that receives the ball. An announcer calls out the player names as the ball is passed and shouts out “Goal!” after the last pass. Winnings are added to any other amounts won on the spin.

Another big money-maker on this game is the Free Games Bonus. It award 12 free spins whenever matching Team Flags appear on reels 1 and 5. Only players from the triggering team appear on the reels of the free games, and they pay in combinations from left to right as well as right to left. Mixed players and scatter bonuses are also paid, but there are no Bonus Ball or Team Flag symbols on the free spin reels.

Some other great features on Top Trumps World Stars include an Autoplay toggle for effortless repetition of bets up to 99 times along with a “Fast Play” mode option located under the Game Settings in the Tools menu. It is possible to change the teams displayed at any time between spins. And the game also has a “Gamble” button to allow doubling up or “half doubling” on wins by choosing one of four playing cards higher than the dealer’s hidden card in a separate window display.
