The goal of playing Top Trumps World Football Stars slot is to get a winning combination of symbols on the reels. The game also features Free Games and a Pass the Ball Bonus. Fans of casino cards games like online blackjack will love the Gamble Feature, which can double your wins with the turn of a card!
When the game loads, you will be prompted to pick two of seven international football teams. Choosing two teams will thus provide the footballer symbols for the game. The teams will also provide the symbols for the Mixed Pay Feature (more on this in a section below).
Despite the symbols being different, the payout structures are the same regardless of which two teams you select.
Press Continue when you have made your selections.
Note: You can pick a new team after any spin by clicking the Change Teams Menu on the top right and top left corners of the reels.
How to Play:
Note: The Total Bet is calculated as Line Bet x Number of Paylines.
Note: After a spin, any winning combinations will be highlighted on the reels. The total win will be displayed in the Win Field.
Note: Full payout information is displayed on the Paytable, which is accessed by clicking the Info button. Line Win payouts are multiplied by the Line Bet. Scatter Win payouts are multiplied by the Total Bet.
Note: A winning spin will activate the Gamble Feature. This will be explained in a section below.
Click Info to open the World Football Stars Info Pages, which include the Paytable and information on the game’s special features. Use the arrows to navigate through the different pages. Press Back to go back to the reels. Descriptions of the Info Pages are provided below:
Paytable – lists all possible payouts for the main game. Click Show Paylines on the bottom of the screen to load a graphic showing the positions of the paylines on the reels.
Choose Your Teams – explains the process of picking teams and how they form winning combinations on the reels.
Mixed Pay – provides information on the Mixed Pay Feature.
Free Games – explains the rules and awarding of the Free Games Bonus.
Pass the Ball Bonus – gives information on the Pass the Ball Bonus.
Gamble – describes the rules of the Gamble Feature. This page also provides information on the maximum double limit.
The slot is played with up to 15 paylines. Each payline will occupy a different position on the reels. The standard symbols will pay from left to right and right to left if they appear on an active payline. The Left Team Symbols will pay from left to right. The Right Team Symbols will pay from right to left.
Only active paylines can register Line Wins. You will be only paid for the highest winning combination in each direction on each payline.
Please be aware of the difference between the Line Bet and the Total Bet. The Line Bet is the amount staked on each active payline. The Total Bet is the amount staked on all paylines (added up).
A list of every possible payout can be found on the Paytable Page. The payouts for Line Wins (including Mixed Pays) are multiplied by the Line Bet. The payout for a Scatter Win is multiplied by the Total Bet.
A Line Win must form a chain of symbols starting on either Reel 1 or Reel 5. The Team chosen from the left-hand column will pay left to right. The Team chosen from the right-hand column will pay right to left. Standard symbols will pay both ways. However, you will be only paid once for Five of a Kind.
Mixed Pay Feature:
Choosing two teams when the game loads provides six symbols for the game, consisting of three players for each football nation.
There is a payout for landing three or more symbols from the same team on a payline, regardless if the players are different. The Mixed Pays must still follow the direction of your team choice, i.e. from left to right or right to left depending on the team.
Please note: Wild Symbols cannot substitute in Mixed Pays.
Wild Symbols will stand in for the regular symbols to make the highest value combination on a payline. Wild Symbols cannot substitute for Scatter Symbols, Free Games Symbols or in Mixed Pays.
Two or more Wild Symbols can also form their own Line Win if they fall on a payline. Wild Symbol Line Wins can pay from left to right and right to left.
Scatter Symbols will award a payout if two or more appear in any position on the reels. This payout is multiplied by the Total Bet.
Free Games Symbol:
A Free Games Symbol for each team can appear on Reels 1 and Reel 5. They do not have any payout value. Instead, you will be awarded Free Games with special features if the Free Games Symbol for the same team appears on Reels 1 and 5 simultaneously.
Pass the Ball Bonus:
The Pass the Ball Bonus is awarded whenever the Football Symbol appears on Reel 2 with a player from the Left Team immediately to its left, or when the Football Symbol appears on Reel 4 with a player from the Right Team immediately to its right.
The ball will be ‘passed’ between the symbols of the corresponding team, awarding a payout of three times the Total Bet for each team member.
The payout for the Pass the Ball Bonus is added to the payout from any Line Wins and Scatter Wins.
Free Games Bonus:
If the same team’s Free Games Symbol lands on Reels 1 and Reel 5 simultaneously, you will be awarded 12 Free Games.
Press Click To Start to begin playing Free Games. The Free Games will begin to play through automatically. The total win is shown on the top right of the screen. The remaining Free Games are shown on the top right of the screen.
During Free Games, the symbols from the other team are removed from the reels and replaced with symbols from the triggering team. In addition, all wins will pay from right to left and right to left.
After all Free Games have finished, a results screen will display the total win from Free Games (Feature Win) and the awarding spin (Game Win).
Press Continue to go back to the main game.
A winning spin in the main game will give you the option of entering the Gamble Feature. Press the Gamble button if you wish to play.
Clicking Gamble will open a new screen, which features five cards face down. The leftmost card is the dealer’s card. Press Double or Double Half to reveal the dealer’s card and start the feature.
The objective is to choose one of the four remaining cards to reveal a card with a higher value than the dealer.
If you choose correctly, you can keep doubling up until the maximum double limit has been reached. This information is displayed on the Gamble Info Page.
You can press Collect at any time before the dealer has revealed their card.
Choosing Double Half will bank half your winnings and let your play the Gamble Feature with the remainder.
