Basketball Star online pokie from Microgaming is the latest in a series of similar sports themed games. The high paying symbols are basketball players that can be seen in the various manoeuvres. The win animations bring the game alive on the reels. The low paying symbols are also taken from the sport and include the gold medal, the sneakers, the energy drink and the basketball court. The Basketball Star logo is the wild symbol. There are more than 40 wild symbols on the reels set and they can appear stacked on reels 3, 4 and 5. The basketball is the scatter symbol and it awards scatter payouts that are multiplied by the total bet.
If you like bonus features then Basketball Star is the online pokie for you. The Rolling Reels feature first pays out the winning combinations. Then the symbols involved disappear from the reels and are replaced by new ones falling down from above. If new winning combinations are formed then you will be paid again and the process will repeat. The Wild Shot feature is triggered randomly during any spin. Up to two reels from the middle three will get converted into wild reels and at the same time assure you of a payout.
The most attractive feature in Basketball Star online pokie is the free spins bonus. It is triggered by landing three or more basketball symbols anywhere on the reels. Three basketball symbols will award 15 free spins, four symbols will award 20 free spins and five symbols will award 25 free spins. The free spins cannot be retriggered. However, in the free spins the Rolling Reels feature becomes even more powerful. Consecutive wins in the same spin are paid out with increasing multipliers. The sequence of the multipliers is 1x, 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x and 10x. For a longer winning sequence the multiplier will remain at 10x. If you get a spin without any win them the multiplier will reset to 1x.
