Basketball Star Slots - Microgaming
ABOUT BASKETBALL STAR SLOTS
Basketball Star was the fourth sports themed video slot to be released by Microgaming when it made its way to online casinos in November 2015, following on from Football Star, Cricket Star and Rugby Star. The five reel game is played at 243 winning ways and has the same gameplay as its predecessors, with basketball obviously taking the centre stage.
Launched ahead of the new NBA season, the Microgaming title has high symbols depicting basketball players going through the various stages of the game, looking for a pass, shooting and in the process of slam dunk. Meanwhile, low icons show winner's medal, basketball shoes, water bottles and coach clipboard, with Game Logo and Basketball the two special icons.
HOW TO PLAY BASKETBALL STAR
Due to the 243 way wins format, casino gamers do not have to worry about selecting paylines, although it is important to note that minimum wager per spin stands at 50 coins. There are a total of four coin values to choose from in the $0.01 to $0.10 range, whilst they can also choose up to 10 coins, translating to up to 500 credits in total.
Basketball Star Logo acts as the Wild symbol, substituting for all game icons with the exception of Basketball Scatter to complete wins where possible. Wild occurs stacked on reels III, IV and V, whereas randomly activated Wild Shot feature can see up to two reels from the middle three turn Wild with guaranteed wins.
If you have played any of the previous three sports themed slots from Microgaming, you will know all about the Wild Shot feature with guaranteed wins as well as Free Spins with Rolling Reels and multipliers up to x10.
The main bonus round can see casino gamers land up to 120,000 credits, with 15, 20 and 25 free spins awarded each time three, four or five Scatters occur in any position. The Rolling Reels feature is active during the Free Spins round and it can award multiple successive wins as well as multipliers up to x10.
Basketball Scatter is used to trigger the highly rewarding Free Spins round that comes equipped with Rolling Reels, guaranteed wins and special multipliers, while players will also receive instant cash prizes of 5x, 50x and 250x total bet each time three, four and five Scatters appear anywhere on the game screen.
While the Free Spins round awards wins up to 120,000 coins, there are some nice prizes to be won in the base play as well. Maximum payout per single winning way is 6,000 credits and is awarded when five basketball players jumping for a slam dunk appear anywhere on all five reels.
