Fans of basketball will surely enjoy the modern slot machine created by Microgaming. Basketball Star is a game with 243 ways to win for 5x3 and it has the Rolling Reels feature active for each spin to create more chances of winning big prizes. Not to mention that a multiplier is added for consecutive wins during the free spins mode and wins can go up to 120,000 coins as a result.
Basketball Star is yet another slot machine themed after a popular sport added to the Microgaming collection. Its style is similar to the other games in the category but the theme is of course different, as this one is based around the sport of basketball. As such, the action actually takes place on a court during an important match and the seats are filled with eager fans in the background. On the screen is where the action takes place and it is a standard 5x3 layout where players benefit from 243 ways to win on every spin. This makes sure that every combination that starts from the first reel will be paid and to make it even easier, the game comes with more than 40 wilds which can appear stacked on reels 3, 4 and 5. The Wild Shot feature can randomly be triggered and will turn up to two reels wild at the same time. The Basketball Star slot machine has the rolling reels feature active during the base game and this means that the symbols which create a combination will disappear after they award their prize and make room for other symbols to fall in their place, thus offering the chance for multiple wins on the same spins. Free spins can be triggered by scatters showing the ball and three, four or five will award 15, 20 or 25 spins, respectively. In addition to the Rolling Reels function, a multiplier is added during the free spins and with each consecutive win, the multiplier will increase by one, up to 10x. The symbols show five images of basketball players in different situations and the highest paying one is the symbol of the player in a red shirt dunking. The four lower paying symbols keep with the basketball theme and show a gold medal, a pair of sneakers, a six-pack of energy drinks and a strategy board of the field.
