Top Trumps Celebs Slot Review


Do you remember playing Top Trumps as a child? I can remember vividly playing both the footballer and car themed ones for many hours at a time and as such, it is nice to see the game making a return, but this time in the slot world thanks to the new Playtech designed game Top Trumps Celebs. This exciting customisable slot allows you to pick which celebrities you want to see on the reel and even which celeb you would like to serve as the in game Wild.

The slot itself is a 5×3 reel game that features the usual playing card lows as the lower value symbols on the reels and the customisable celebrity Top Trumps as the higher value symbols on the reels. The highest value payout in the game however is to land five of the Celebrity Wilds across a payline, which triggers a payout of 10,000 coins, which is ten times more than the biggest celebrity symbol payout.

The minimum bet you can get the reels spinning from is just £0.10 and you can increase that bet up to a maximum of £20, which means this is definitely a medium to lower stakes player game and you can select the number of paylines available, though of course we would recommend that you play the maximum 20 paylines to increase your chances of a win. The game is playable right now at Bet365 Games.

Top Trumps Celebs Bonus Features

The key bonus features in the Top Trumps Celebs slot include the Wild celebrity symbol, who offers you a chance at a 10,000 coin jackpot if you can land all five of these symbols on a single payline, however most often this symbol is used to substitute for high and low value symbols to create one or more winning paylines. You can land multiple wilds across the reels on a spin which can radically increase the size of a win.

The two main bonus games are the Red Carpet Bonus which is triggered when you land the Red Carpet Bonus on reels 1 and 5 on the same spin. Here you get to pick from a Celebrity Wall of 16 faces. You can pick three celebrities initially and each will award you a cash prize. Occasionally a celeb may also award you an extra pick, which means you get to pick another celeb from the wall to add to your prize fund.

Secondly, the other key bonus is the Free Spins feature which is triggered when you land three of the Top Trumps Celebs scatter symbol across the reels.  You receive 10 free spins initially but you can retrigger the bonus to earn an additional 10 free spins. During Free Spins you can pick from three celebrities to add an additional Wild to your reels for the bonus round. If you complete a payline using this additional wild then you also receive a hefty 4x multiplier on that win as a bonus.


Editor's Review

There’s some lovely aspects of the Top Trumps Celebs slot, including the extra celebrity Wild during free spins, plus the chance to gamble any of your wins to increase their value. I like the fact that the game is customisable with celebrities across the reels and there is a great selection of celebrities to pick from across all walks of life. The two bonus games are exciting although the Free Spins round does tend to offer better payouts than the Red Carpet Bonus game. All in all, a solid slot which has some nice touches but which doesn’t quite grab and hold your attention as it should.
