The new Basketball Star slot game from Microgaming has illustrious predecessors like Football Star, Cricket Star and Rugby Star. Though it is similar in structure, Basketball Star has its own identity through thematic symbols and action packed animations. NBA is the most followed basketball tournament. The 2015-16 season has just begun and Basketball Star will give online casino players the extra enjoyment as they track the fortunes of their favourite teams.
Basketball Star is an action packed online slot game. The win animations in the main symbols bring alive on the screen all the basketball manoeuvres, including the popular slam dunk. Because Basketball Star is a 243 ways to win online slot game, winning combinations occur more frequently and result in more basketball action on the reels. Stacked wilds, wild reels and free spins with multipliers will make the payouts skyrocket like the fees earned by the pro players.
Basketball Star includes all the Microgaming functionalities that you are accustomed to such as Auto Play and customisation options.
You play with all 243 paylines active, so you select only the coin size and number of coins. The coin size can be varied from 0.01 to 0.50 and the number of coins per payline from 1 to 10. The total bet is 50 times the line bet. So you can wager as little as 0.50 per spin to as much as 250.00 per spin.
Basketball Star does not have a regular bonus game on the second screen, but has bonus features in the main game that compensate. In the Rolling Reels feature, after the winning combinations are paid out, the symbols involved burn out from the reels and are replaced by new ones falling down from above. If winning combinations are again formed then you will be paid again and the process will repeat. No additional wagers are taken for the repetitions. The multiple payouts are from the same bet.
Another bonus feature is called the Wild Shot. It can be triggered randomly during any spin. In the Wild Shot feature up to two reels from the middle three will get converted into wild reels. When this happens you will be assured a winning combination. The Rolling Reels feature continues through the Wild Shot feature as well.
Basketball Star video slot has a high payout free spins feature, which you will want triggered as often as possible. To activate the free spins round you need to land three or more basketball symbols anywhere on the reels in the same spin. The number of free spins awarded will depend on the number of basketball symbols on the screen in the triggering spin. Three symbols will award 15 free spins, four symbols will award 20 free spins and five symbols will award 25 free spins. The free spins cannot be retriggered.
The Rolling Reels feature continues in the free spins and with enhanced functionality. Consecutive wins in the same spin are paid out with increasing multipliers. The sequence of the multipliers is 1x, 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x and 10x. If there are more than six consecutive win, the multiplier will remain at 10x. The multiplier will reset to 1x if there is no win.
All the symbols are from the sport of basketball. No playing card icons have been used. The most important symbol is the Basketball Star logo, which is the wild symbol. There are more than 40 wild symbols on the reels set and will lead to more frequent winning combinations. There is more to come. The wild symbol can appear stacked on reels 3, 4 and 5. You will get five of a kind wins more often than in other slot games. The basketball is the scatter symbol and it awards scatter payouts that are multiplied by the total bet.
The high paying symbols are basketball players in action such as blocking, dribbling passing and shooting. The win animations with these symbols are awesome. The low paying symbols the gold medal, the sneakers, the energy drink and the basketball court.
