Microgaming Launches Basketball Star

No, it isn’t the case that one of the world’s leading online gaming companies has suddenly decided to diversify into the management of sporting celebrities – the headline simply refers to the title of a brand new online slots game. Basketball Star is a feature-packed game that will appeal to anyone who likes to shoot hoops or watch those that do, as well as to general slots fans who enjoy playing sports-themed titles from time to time.


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.

‘This month we’re adding to the collection of sporting games we offer with Basketball Star,’ said Mike Hebden, who is Head of Casino Games at Microgaming. ‘Packing the excitement of a major league final, we’re confident the game will be a crowd-pleaser. Plus, its simultaneous release ensures players are able to enjoy the game no matter their preferred playing device, adding to the industry’s biggest portfolio of mobile games available to our operators.’

Basketball Star is a game well worth checking out, and whilst you’re at it you may also want to take a look at three other new slots titles that have recently been launched by Microgaming: So Many Monsters, So Much Candy and So Much Sushi.
