Sports are a popular theme for slot machines nowadays, and Isle of Man based casino software developer Microgaming has added a fresh title to its collection.
It’s called Basketball Star, and it’s part of the developer’s Sports Star Series, with titles like Football Star, Cricket Star and Rugby Star already released. (Actually, the first game with a similar set of features was Break Away, a hockey-themed video slot released before, but it’s not officially part of the series).
Basketball Star is a five reel, three row video slot with 243 ways to win, and the set of features well known for fans of the previous Sports Star releases. It comes with the popular Rolling Reels feature, which will see symbols involved in a winning combination disappear from the screen, allowing others to fall into their place and possibly triggering a cascade of wins. Three or more of the game’s Scatter symbols will trigger up to 25 free spins with multipliers of up to 10x with cascading wins. It also comes with the popular Wild Shot bonus feature in the base game, turning up to two reels into wild ones.
Basketball Star is released today on all Microgaming platforms – download, Flash and mobile.
“This month we’re adding to the collection of sporting games we offer with Basketball Star,” Mike Hebden, Head of Casino Games at Microgaming commented on the release. “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.”
Besides Basketball Star, Microgaming is also releasing three new mobile games today – its popular So Many Monsters, So Much Candy and So Much Sushi titles.
