Put on your sneakers, get on the court and try and get a slam dunk payout in Basketball Star. Created by Microgaming, this sport-themed slot comes with a 5 reel, 243 ways to win game engine, complete with free spins, Rolling Reels and a multiplier trail of up to 10x. Get shooting from between 50p and £50 per spin.
Microgaming has obviously invested heavily in making Basketball Star look and sound a treat – the action takes place against the backdrop of a basketball arena, complete with cheering crowds. Symbols on the reels include coach’s chalkboard, drinks bottles, sneakers, gold medals and basketball players in a variety of action poses.
The Basketball Star logo is the wild. There are over 40 of them spinning around the reels and they can appear as stacked symbols on reels 3, 4 and 5.
Available to play on desktop computer, tablet and mobile, Basketball Star comes with Rolling Reels so after every successful spin, the winning symbols will be blasted away and replaced by the symbols above, offering a second chance to bag a winner. The Rolling Reels really come into their own during the Free Spins feature.
Land 3, 4 or 5 basketball scatter symbols to trigger 15, 20 or 25 free spins. The Rolling Reels play out during the free spins with the added attraction of an increasing multiplier whenever you manage to land successive Rolling Reels. This multiplier can reach up to 10x and give your winning chances a timely boost.
Look out too for the randomly triggered Wild Shot feature – when this lands, it will turn up to 2 reels completely wild and offers a guaranteed win.
As you’d hope from a sporty slot, there’s plenty of action on offer in Basketball Star – like a good game of hoops, the action flows back and forth courtesy of the 243 ways to win game engine and the Rolling Reels. The free spins are much harder to come by but can deliver some nice results when they do hit – up to 2,400 times your stake!
Visually, Basketball Star looks excellent. The soundtrack is a good one too. Even the thudding of the reels sounds like the bouncing of the ball on the court. NBA fans will find plenty to keep them entertained here. Even if hoops aren’t your game, there are enough features on offer in Basketball Star to make it well worth a much closer look. It’s a decent game but Microgaming have produced better – I recommend the superb Immortal Romance or the film-inspired Jurassic Park.
