Will you score the winning basket?
This game is a 5 reel game which does not use standard paylines. Instead any 3 or matching symbols anywhere on adjacent reels starting from the left side of the reels is considered a win. This is equivalent to 243 standard paylines.
The ‘Basketball Star Logo’ symbol is wild and is stacked on reels 3, 4 and 5.
There are 3 bonus features when playing Basketball Star. The first bonus feature is always active. Whenever you receive a winning combination, after you’ve been paid the symbols that contributed to the win will explode allowing the symbols above them to drop down and new symbols to come in from the top to fill the spaces. If the new symbols create new winning combinations the process repeats. This continues until there are no new winning combinations. This feature is called ‘Rolling Reels’.
The second bonus feature is activated randomly and turns either reel 2, 3 or 4 into a Wild reel. The Rolling Reels feature is not available when this happens.
The third bonus feature is activated when you receive 3 or more of the ‘Basketball’ scatter symbol anywhere on the reels. When this happens you will be awarded between 15 and 25 complimentary spins depending on the number of Basketball symbols you received. During the complimentary spins each time the Rolling Reel feature is activated consecutively the multiplier that is applied to new winning symbols is increased.
I’m not the biggest Basketball fan, but for only 3.48% House Edge Basketball Stars is offering a lot of variety and entertainment. This is a game that’s worth a look.
