The goal of the main game in Top Trumps World Football Stars online slot is to match symbols on active paylines across the reels to win cash amounts.
To Play the Game:
Select the Info Button from the bottom left-hand corner of the screen to display informational pages for Top Trumps World Football Stars online slot. Use the arrow buttons on the bottom right of the screen to move through the pages. Click Back at any time to return to the main reels. The Info Pages will display:
Paylines are the line shapes the winning symbol combinations must fall on to win. If you press the Lines button you can view the different paylines on the reels.
Only active paylines can have winning combinations. Thus, if you are only playing Line 1 you will only be paid for matching symbols on that payline.
Please Note: there is a clear difference between the Line Bet and the Total Bet. The Line Bet is a wager on matching symbols on an active payline. The Total Bet is the accumulative wager on all active paylines.
The Scatter Symbols do not need to be on an active payline to form a win. More information on Scatter Symbols below.
All payouts are displayed on the Paytable. For the value of a Line Win, multiply the Line Bet by the relevant value of the symbols on the Paytable.
For this slot, in certain circumstances, lines pay in both directions i.e. from left to right and right to left. This will be explained in greater detail below.
All symbol wins must be in an unbroken chain of symbols starting from reel 1 or reel 5. This does not include Scatter Wins.
Choose Your Teams Feature:
When loading the game you will be prompted to pick 2 from 7 international football teams: Argentina, Brazil, England, France, Germany, Italy and Spain. Pick one team from the left hand column and 1 team from the right. The team you choose from the left hand column will pay as a symbol win from left to right. The team you pick from the right hand column will pay as a symbol win from right to left on the reels. All selections are the same in terms of monetary value and no advantage can be gained from the team that you pick. When you pick 2 teams, players from those nations will be present on the reels during play. Only symbols from the nations that you choose will be present during game play. You can change your chosen teams after any spin by selecting from the top corners of the screen. Please note: you must exit Autoplay mode to change your team.
Lines Pay Both Ways:
When you have selected your two international teams, the selection from the left will be active as a symbol combination from left to right on the reels, starting with reel 1. The selection from the right hand column will be active from right to left, starting from reel 5. In addition to the team symbols, Royal Symbols also pay both ways in both the base game and Free Games Bonus. The highest win is paid in each direction. 5 of a kind pays only once. In the main game Mixed Combinations pay depending on the team, in Free Games they both ways regardless of which columns you have selected your team from.
The Wild Symbol substitutes for all other standard symbols to help form winning combinations. There are some exceptions:
The Wild Symbol also has its own standalone value for matching 2 or more Wild Symbols on an active payline. When this occurs there is likely to be an overlap between the Wild Symbol win and the Wild Symbol forming another winning combination with other symbol. In this scenario you will be paid for whichever win has the highest value.
The Scatter Symbols are active regardless of where they land on the screen. If you land 2 or more Scatter Symbols on the reels you will be paid a multiplier of your Total Bet. Information on the payouts for Scatter Symbols can be found on the Paytable.
Pass the Ball Bonus:
The Pass the Ball Bonus is activated when the Ball Symbol lands on Reel 2 with a left side team player directly adjacent on the left, or when the Ball Symbol lands on Reel 4 with a right side team player directly adjacent on the right. In the Pass the Ball Bonus:
Mixed Pay Feature:
The international football teams that you choose will each provide 3 players to act as symbols in the game. Each player has their own value in a matching combination. However, matching 3 or more symbols from the same nation on an active payline will also pay, regardless of whether the players match or not. For example, if England was one of your chosen nations, and you landed Steven Gerrard, David Beckham and Wayne Rooney on a payline in any order you would win 10x the Line Bet. In the main game team 1 (the team chosen from the left hand column) will pay for mixed symbols from left to right, whereas team 2 will pay from right to left. In the Free Games Bonus both teams will pay both ways.
Please Note the Wild Symbol does not substitute in Mixed Pay combinations.
The Free Games Bonus is awarded when the National Flag Symbol of one of your chosen teams land on reels 1 and 5. Please note: Free Spins are only awarded when the same National Flag Symbol appears. When the Free Games Bonus is awarded:
Please note: If the Free Games Bonus has been awarded when using Autoplay mode, they will not begin until you press the Click to Start button. When the Bonus is finished, you can click Continue to finish your selected amount of Autoplay spins.
