Time to head to the races, the pitch or the courts to spin your favourite sports slot, but will you hit and miss or get a home run?
What makes a great Sports slot? Is it big names and big brands? Or is it bringing your favourite your ball game alive on screen as you spin to become the ultimate champion?
Maybe it’s a little bit of both. After all, slot machines online are all about winning, and while we can all pretend that sportsmanship means it’s about participating, we all know that a whole load of baloney.
Sports are about winning. Slots are about winning. Because having that competitive spirit only makes things more interesting when playing any kind of games. And that’s what we are talking about here: games and entertainment.
From Basketball to Cricket, to Ice Hockey, Fishing, Football and Horse racing slots, chances are you’ll find the sport you love in our list below, all available to play at mobile casinos.
Generally speaking, casino software providers (the guys that make the games) will stick to the popular sports. Because the whole point of a slot theme is to intrigue you enough to click on the game and take a couple of spins.
Sure, some of you out there are great players and read each of our new phone slot reviews as they come out, so you know the gambling games to play and the ones to avoid but… even you will probably just browse and randomly click on an eye-catching logo that seems interesting.
And what’s more eye-catching than a hobby you love? So yes, the game studios play the odds and stick with the hobbies that will appeal to the biggest masses.
Which leaves us with some very weird choices to create the best of the best list, namely three big categories: Horseracing, Football and Fishing.
Because, apparently, we still live in the 1950s and we love nothing more than watching our favourite team win the Champions cup, head to the races for a quick bet, right before you go relax by trying to get the biggest catch of your life.
Did you know that horseracing is one of the few sports that basically survives year by year on its gambling revenue? After all, you don’t go to watch the races just to see who comes first.
You go get your betting slip, you pick your favourite based on expert opinions (or, like my mother, based on the cute names), and then you watch the track avidly, waiting for that beautiful galloping creature to bring home the win.
Without that betting slip, you are just watching horses go around in circles.
But you can’t go to the races every day and while we love making the occasional sport bet, slots our biggest love and far more easily accessible on your phone, Android tablet, iPad or laptop.
Our choices are obvious ones, but the whole point is that these are meant to be the best sports casino games of their kind, so obvious makes sense.
It’s a good place to start if you like horsebetting and fruit machines.
An estimated 3.4 billion people watched the last football world cup from over 200 counties. Think about that number for a second, and you’ll soon realise why Football is one of the most popular sport slot themes.
And yes, to clarify, we mean Football as in the game where you kick a ball, with your foot, ONLY. Not where you get to pick it, run with it, sometimes kick it, like in American Football.
Sorry to our cousins across the pond, but we are going to call it what it is and give you a list of the Football casino games we think deserve your attention today.
We know three is more traditional, but we couldn’t help ourselves. There was just so many to pick from, we decided to go for four. So sue us, this is our slot reviews site and we can do what we want with it.
Four very different games, each will help you score big in their own way.
Not everyone would watch fishing as a sport, but you can’t deny that there is a lot of skill and patience required to hook that big catch and take home the prize.
And while you don’t need that much skill to enjoy these fishing slot games, a little patience will always help when you are trying to catch the kind of prize that will see your face in all the local newspapers.
Plus, there is something nice about playing on a game that takes you away from the stresses of life and lets you dream of being far away in nature.
So we’ve picked three again because it’s always nice to have an odd number.
The question you have to ask yourself is how big a catch you’re looking for.
This is an odd category, but we wanted to mention some of our favourite slots with sports themes that didn’t fit into the usual categories.
These are games we really enjoyed, and whilst the sport on the logo helped with that, mostly they are just great games. We probably would have played them whether it had a Leprechaun theme or been a Ghosts, spooks and Zombie game.
If you don’t know which category you want to start, or which game appeals the most, try one of the ones below.
You’ve got a racing game, the most famous boxer of all time, and a game with some real hard knocks.
With so much choice available, we are sure you’ll be able to find a great gambling game that will see you walk away with the trophy.
