Players at Virgin Casino are having a ball. Three new games were released yesterday. And a new football themed online slot has just gone live. This is Top Trumps World Cup Stars from Orbis Technology. Obviously geared to cash in on the Football World Cup fever, this is easily the best football themed slot game on offer in the online casino industry.
The graphics are slick. The reels are set in the background of a modern football stadium. The symbols include the Trophy, the Boots, the Football and the Whistle. The high value card symbols from Ace to Nine are unique. Each represents a top footballer from the leading countries in the game. These are Brazil, England, Spain, Argentina, Portugal and Germany. Football fans who can identify these players by name will derive additional mileage from the slot game.
There are three special symbols. The Top Trumps logo is the wild symbol. It also offers a jackpot payout of 10,000 coins. There are two scatter symbols and both offer scatter payouts. The Africa Map symbol triggers one free spin when three or more such symbols appear anywhere on the reels. The other symbol is the World Map bordered by flags of the countries participating in the World Cup. This symbol triggers the bonus game on the second screen.
What makes Top Trumps stand out among all the football themed slots are the animations. The wild symbol changes to the symbols it substitutes for. In the Football symbol the football is kicked into the goal. In the high value card symbols the players get displayed against the background of their national flag. The audio is also excellent. There is a constant cheering of the crowds punctuated by the sound of the whistle blowing.
The bonus game on the second screen is similar to that in many of the other football themed slot games but is executed with greater finesse. The player chooses one of the symbols that have triggered the bonus round. This provides his base prize and the number of penalty kicks that he can have at the goal. The player has then to select a country from those participating in the tournament. The opposing country is automatically allotted. In the penalty shoot out the player marks a spot in the goal where the ball will be kicked. If the goalkeeper cannot stop the ball the player is awarded a multiplier. All the multipliers are added up and applied to the base prize to give the total credits won in the game.
