Sports fans will be thrilled to hear of one of the latest video slot games from Microgaming. Basketball Stars embraces this popular sport and offers players 243 ways to win with each and every spin. The game is complete with cheering and rowdy crowds, great action of rolling reels and an awesome free spin round that will always boost winnings. The game has also just been released in a mobile format, so players can enjoy the action packed excitement on the go. Basketball Stars is not a progressive game and can also be played for free, though most players will want to capture the wins that are offered.
The symbols that are seen on the reels are all related to the basketball theme and consist of basketball players, water bottles, trainers, a tactics chart and a gold medal. To achieve a winning combination, players will have to get matching symbols in adjacent reels starting at the left of the screen.
Seeing as there are 243 ways to win, the game offers a betting structure as if there were 50 paylines, so the smallest bet for all ways to win is just $0.50 per spin. This can be increased to $50 per spin for those that wish to wager and win more. As a video slot from Microgaming, players will benefit from a wild symbol that can appear stacked on the last three reels and this will take the place of all game symbols with the exception of the basketball scatter.
At random, a Wild Shot feature will trigger and as many as two reels will become completely wild. There is also the rolling reels feature, so every time a winning combination is created, the symbols will disappear and be replaced by new symbols to offer multiple chances to win from a single spin.
The highlight of the game is the free spin round and this is triggered with three or more of the basketball scatters. Players who get three symbols will enjoy 15 free spins, but getting four will offer 20 spins and five scatters present players with 25 spins. Every Rolling Reel win will increase in multiplier, so players can win as much as 10x the normal payout during the round.
Basketball Star is an exciting game that will be appealing to any sports fan. With many features and multiple chances to win from single spins, this game is a perfect choice for any real money gambler online or at mobile casinos.
