The design here is simple but nicely done – you’ll see the packed stands of a football stadium in the background with A to 10 value spinning around the reels. The higher value symbols are photos of some of the world’s biggest footballing stars.
You can pick and choose who you want here. If you’re sick of the sight of Cristiano Ronaldo, you can swap him for 1 of 30 top players. They include Messi, Suarez, Neymar and many more. The top payer, whoever you choose, offers 2, 10 or 25 times your stake if you land 3, 4 or 5 on a payline.
The football is the game’s wild. It subs for everything bar the scatter and bonus and pays up to 25 times your stake per payline. There are 3 features on offer in Top Trumps Football Stars: Sporting Legends:
- Free Kick Respin feature – a football appears and land on 1 of the player symbols. If the ball bounces into the net above the reels, you’ll be awarded a respin with the wild locking in place. These continue until the ball misses the net.
- Wild Free Games feature – this round is triggered by landing the Top Trumps symbol on reels 2, 3 and 4 on the same spin. The process is similar to the Free Kick Respin feature. Balls will bounce onto the reels and land on a player, turning him into a sticky wild. There’s no defined number of free spins here as they keep on coming as long as you score a goal.
- Football Trophy Bonus feature – hit the Bonus symbol on reels 1 and 5 on the same spin to unlock this round. You’ll then be offered 21 cards. Behind each of them is a cash award, extra picks and/or multipliers. You’ll start with 3 picks but you can expect to land more. Hope to land the Win All which awards everything.
You’ll also have a chance to land the daily, weekly or Sporting Legends jackpot prizes – these are won randomly on any spin with the latter being the biggest.
