Playtech’s New Football-Themed Video Slot Hits the Market
The 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia is well underway, which means it’s a perfect time to see a football-themed slot hit the market.
The Isle of Man-based gambling software development company Playtech has come down with a football fever, and to celebrate the biggest sporting event of the year, the company has prepared a thrilling progressive jackpot slot for all football fans out there.
Now, Playtech has proudly announced the launch of the new game titled Top Trumps Football Stars Sporting Legends. The latest addition to its offering is also the third game of the Sporting Legends collection.
Punters around the globe will be looking forward to the new release since it’s packed with lucrative prizes, multipliers, and free spins, while the most appealing part of this game are its three progressive jackpots on offer.
Top Trumps Football Stars Sporting Legends is a five-reel three-row slot with 20 fixed paylines. Matching the whole team, the reels are set on a football field, while the game symbols feature some of the world’s best football players, including Cristiano Ronaldo, Messi, and Neymar.
There are 30 players available and you can even choose your favourite football stars, even the one that will award the biggest payouts when all five of a kind land on the reels, worth 25 times the triggering wager.
When it comes to betting, your stake can be as low as $0.20, while the maximum available bet can’t exceed $20 per spin.
Bonus Features and Progressive Jackpots
There are three bonus features on offer: Free Spins Bonus, Football Trophy Bonus Symbol, and Free Kick Respins.
When the Scatter lands on the three middle reels, the Free Spins Bonus is activated, while just one Football Trophy Bonus symbol on reels 1 and 5 will be enough to trigger the Football Trophy Bonus. Once the feature is on, players will be able to pick Top Trumps cards and unlock potentially lucrative rewards, including hefty multipliers and even extra picks.
While the Free Spins round is active, you may see a football on the reels, which can turn players into Wild icons. Score a goal, and you’ll end up grabbing additional spins! If you waste your chance of scoring, the feature will end.
Definitely, the most appealing aspect of this game is the chance to win one of three available progressive jackpots – the Daily, the Weekly and the Sporting Legends Mega Jackpot. The latter is the biggest one, while all three of them are won randomly on any spin.
Commenting on the launch of the new game, Shimon Akad, Chief Operating Officer at Playtech said Top Trumps had all the ingredients the company was looking for in a football-themed brand, both in time for the World Cup and for the Sporting Legends suite long-term.
Akad added they were sure players would enjoy being able to customise the gameplay with their favourite stars – and of course getting a shot at the Sporting Legends jackpots.
Top Trumps Football Stars Sporting Legends is already available online, and you can check it out at any Playtech-powered casino.
