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.
