On the face of it, Basketball is a somewhat odd game. Its best players are amongst the most genetically unusual athletes in the world and although its heartland is America, it is a sport that has grown in popularity across Europe and around the world.
So much so that the decision by Microgaming to release the brand new Basketball Star slot, is certainly going to appeal to a lot of basketball fans, as well as a high number of big jackpot chasing slot players.
First of all, let’s look at the presentation. The slot certainly looks the part with none of the usual playing card lows on the reels, just a huge number of basketball related symbols. Add into it some nifty animations and sound effects and it feels like you’ve been thrown into the middle of an All-Star game.
The slot is also packed with features. The Wild Shot feature is triggered at any point in the base game and turns up to two reels completely wild, guaranteeing the player a win. Best of all, Rolling Reels is also active throughout the game, which means winning symbols explode and are replaced by new symbols, creating the chance of multiple wins from a single spin.
The extent of the Rolling Reels feature also stretches into the Free Spins round, which is accessed when the player lands three, four or five of the Basketball scatter symbols anywhere across the reels.
This triggers 15, 20 or 25 free spins respectively, plus the Multiplier Trail, which can be increased from the standard 1x win, up to a massive 10x win, giving you the chance to win some huge amounts on free spins.
This 243 ways to win best slot online offers players to join in the fun from as little as 0.50 per spin, although higher rollers can play for a lot more. With a jackpot of 120,000 coins available to be won, you could be living like a top basketball star yourself if you land the jackpot on this brand new slot from Microgaming.
