Basketball Star is a five-reel slot which gives players 243 ways to win with every spin. The reels are set against a basketball court background, and symbols include basketball shoes, a basketball Scatter symbol, a Basketball Star logo which is Wild, animations of players at various points of the game and more. All of the graphics are as bright and vibrant as the sport they portray, and the title has a thumping hip-hop soundtrack which perfectly suits the action depicted.
There are two special features in this game. A Free Spins feature is triggered when you get 3, 4 or 5 Scatter symbols on the reels at the same time, and awards 15, 20 or 25 Free Spins, respectively. A Wild Shot feature is triggered randomly, and turns up to two reels Wild, which obviously makes it far easier to make a winning line.
Rolling Reels, which give players the chance to win cash prizes several times in a row, are present in both the base game and also in the Free Spins feature. The Rolling Reels in the Free Spins feature boast a Multiplier Trail that goes up to x10, so potential profits are considerable.
