Basketball Star Slot Overview
In this season of a million soccer games, here’s some basketball for you to get your teeth stuck into. Although the bouncy ball game is more of a US obsession than a British one, it is fascinating the world more and more, not least because of the enormous amounts of money becoming a Basketball Star can earn you. But can this 5-reeler from Microgaming offer similar entertainment value to the sport, and throw in the same life-changing sums of money?
If you’re going to get to those big wins, you’ll probably need to get into the big overtime shootout of this game, which is a free spins round with 25 free spins, and Microgaming’s Rolling Reels feature that here can chuck in a multiplier of up to 10-times your prize. That won’t quite get you into the territory of LeBron James’ latest deal, but it will give you a decent summer for sure.
Pay lines are dumped for ways to win here – there are 243 of them. Gamblers can step on the court for as little as 0.50 coins and stay around to chance as much as 50 coins on each spin. The theoretical return to player is 96.52%, which is pretty good, with a possible top prize of 120,000.
Basketball Star slot game is obviously themed after the sport. There’s not a great deal of background, with the reels big, clear and central, and a lot of the information functions hidden on side screens. They spin in front of a typical basketball stadium, and this game should play really well on smaller screens.
The reels are filled with symbols that reflect the sport: trainers, drinks caddies, a coach’s blackboard, medals, and lots of basketball stars doing their I’m-very-tall thing.
The game logo is the wild (I find this a bit dull, but perhaps that’s just me). Microgaming say they’ve put 40 of them on the reel, and they can stack on the right-hand three reels.
In the base game, the Rolling Reels features offer a respin on all wins.
This also plays during the free spins rounds, which is triggered by seeing three, four or five of the scatter symbol, a basketball. The game delivers either 15, 20, or 25 free spins. That’s already impressive and throw in the Rolling Reels feature that works as a multiplier ladder in the bonus game and you could see a 10-times multiplier on your wins by the end of the round.
The final surprise is a Wild Shot. A random extra that turns two reels all wild, and will give you a win – guaranteed.
There are loads of reasons to log on and play the Basketball Star slot: the game looks good, plays well, sounds nice, and delivers fantastic bonus variety and genuine big-win potential.
The only minor complaint we can find is that it’s a bit hard to get into all the helpful information you might need, but if you’ve played any slot – Microgaming or otherwise – then you’ll pretty soon be playing this one like a natural.
