What is this mobile slot about?

The fourth in a series of Microgaming games, this 243 ways to win slots brings you closer to the action.

What do we mean by the fourth in a series? Technically this Basketball Star mobile slot is a copy of the Rugby Star game.

Which is an improvement on Cricket Star and Football Star, which look like the same game but actually don’t have as big or as many wins.

Cascading reels and 10x multipliers

First you need to know that on every win, the symbols explode, and more come cascading down from below, giving you a mini-respin and another chance at a win.

But things get so much more interesting on the free spins bonus rounds, which comes around fairly often Рevery 50 to 100 spins or so.

Which is nice as it’s here that you’ll get the big wins, as with every cascading win you get an increasing multiplier; up to 10x on a win in fact.

Everyone knows Microgaming slot games have killer free spins.

But the Basketball Star slot is all about the wilds

Because the free spins come often, the wins are often not incredibly impressive, even with that multiplier.

Still, at least the action stays constant, even during the base game as you get up to 40 stacked wilds across reels 3, 4, or 5.

Plus, you randomly get 2 fully expanded wilds during the Wild Shot bonus feature, which doesn’t occur often, but when it does, can make a huge difference.

Mostly, playing on the mobile Basketball Star slot will rarely get you to the major leagues, but if you love the game, you’ll know that most of the fun is in playing.
