Who Are the Top Trumps of the UK Gambling and Betting Brands in Q1 2024?

Did you ever play the game of Top Trumps as a child? For those who immediately scratch their heads, Top Trumps was a game invented in the late 1970s and played by children everywhere in the 1980s.

Each card contains a list of numerical data, and the aim of the game is to compare these values to try to trump and win an opponent's card. A wide variety of different packs of Top Trumps has been published.

My personal favourites were the motorbikes and cars. There were not a great number of packs to choose from in the early 1980s with eleven different packs selling at 50p each. They were published by a company named Dubreq. Today, you can find a pack on just about everything from dinosaurs to X Factor.

Just like online slots, a pack of Top Trumps cards is based on a theme, such as cars, aircraft, books, boats, dinosaurs, or characters from a popular film or television series. Each card in the pack shows a list of numerical data about the item.

For motorbikes, it would be:

  • Model
  • Engine size
  • Speed
  • Horsepower
  • Revs
  • Cost

How to Play Top Trumps

The goal of Top Trumps is to win the most rounds by having the highest-scoring card in each round.

Setup

Choose a Top Trumps deck based on your interests; each deck features a unique theme. Shuffle the deck and deal the entire deck of cards evenly among all players.

Gameplay

Each player holds their cards facing down, and the player to the dealer's left goes first. On their turn, a player selects a category from their top card (e.g., speed, strength, intelligence). Other players then reveal the same category from their top cards. 

The player with the highest value in that category wins the round and collects all the played cards. The player who won the previous round starts the next round by choosing a new category.

Winning

The game continues until one player has all the cards or until a predetermined number of rounds is played. The player with the most cards at the end is declared the Top Trumps champion!

Good luck and remember it is only a game.

Most of my career was spent in teaching including at one of the UK’s top private schools. I left London in 2000 and set up home in Wales raising four beautiful children. I enrolled at University where I studied Photography and film and gained a Degree and subsequently a Masters Degree. In 2014 I helped launch a new local newspaper and managed to get front and back page as well as 6 filler pages on a weekly basis. I saw that journalism was changing and was a pioneer of hyperlocal news in Wales. In 2017 I started one of the first 24/7 free independent news sites for Wales. Having taken that to a successful business model I was keen for a new challenge. Joining the company is exciting for me especially as it is a new role in Europe. I am keen to establish myself and help others to do the same.
