Basketball Star Slots

If the thought of donning your best singlet and shooting some hoops sounds a bit too much like hard work, then help is at hand in the form of Basketball Star; a fantastic slot game that will actually pay you for engaging in some on-court action.

Experienced slot gamers will be glad to hear that Microgaming, the developer of Basketball Star, have once again incorporated the 243 ways to win technology, and this five reel slot is playable from just 50c per spin.

With more than 40 of the wild symbol on your reels ready to be spun, and the Rolling Reels feature a big hit with slot fans across the globe, Basketball Star is a game which really does put the ball back in your court (pun intended).

The graphics are superb – the basketball court backdrop looks great – and the sound effects of the crowd cheering really help to spur you on when the going gets tough. All things considered, you’ll be raring to go when you have read about some of the outrageous payouts and prizes on offer.

Shoot from the Hip

All of the in-game symbols are linked to basketball in some way. The lowest paying four are the Tactics Board, the Drinks Holder, the Trainers and Medal, and each of these pays out more on an ascending scale if you match three or more of them on a payline. From a $1 bet you can earn up to $2.40 for matching five of the Gold Medal symbol.

But things get a little tastier when we take a look at the next set of symbols. There are five symbols that show a bit of on-court action (there’s a player dribbling, one guarding, one setting up for a slam dunk etc). These are a bit more generous with their payouts, with the slam dunker paying up to $12 for matching five on your reels.

And then come the big boys. The Basketball Star logo is wild, and can help to create a ‘wild stack’ for your payout pleasure. This substitutes for all other symbols (apart from the scatter) and will appear occasionally on reels 3, 4 and 5. Reel 3 has an 18 symbol stack, reel 4 has a 25 symbol stack and reel 5 has a 3 symbol stack.

You’ll also want to keep an eye on the wilds as far as the Wild Shot Feature goes. This is randomly activated at any time during the main game, and here one or two of reels 2, 3 or 4 will become fully wild. This feature will only activate if the newly wild reels can complete a win, but the good news is that the Rolling Reels system is ready to rock in the Wild Shot Feature.

Court Marshal

Then there’s the Basketball Scatter symbol, which pays $5 for matching three (from a $1 bet), $50 for matching four and a whopping $250 for matching five. When three or more are matched the Free Spins Bonus round is triggered too. Whilst wins containing the scatter don’t trigger the Rolling Reels feature during the main game, they do during the Free Spins Bonus for extra goodness.

The number of free spins you win during this bonus feature is dictated by how many scatters you spin initially, but there is a maximum of 25 freebies in place for matching five of the b-ball scatter.

During the Free Spins Bonus you are given a multiplier for each of your rolling reels, and this number will increase for each consecutive winning combination you spin: anything up to 10x is achievable. All wins during the bonus round are paid at the same as the main game, and unfortunately the Free Spins round cannot be re-triggered; which is a bit of a thumbs down for Basketball Star.

Let the Good Times Roll

The Rolling Reels system is a fantastic way to net a chain of winning combinations; with an almost infinite number of consecutive wins available.

Each symbol in a winning line is removed and replaced by the symbol that sits above it on the reel. If this creates additional wins then great; you’ll be paid out for these too. And remember: any win during the main game triggers the Rolling Reels feature, except scatter wins. So each win you enjoy, however small, has the potential to turn into something far more lucrative.

All Star Slot

With a huge number of ways to win and a host of unique features, this sports themed slot by Microgaming might just be an early candidate for the online slot Hall of Fame. At the very least it will make this years All Star list.
