Basketball Star is a 5 reel, 243 ways to win video slot that's set in a sports arena full of spectators who want to watch the big game. The game oozes style with the basketball theme, complete with action symbols including a posted up set of players, a player trying to block a pass, a driving player, a player taking a shot, and a player dunking. Other symbols include a play chart, water bottles, sneakers, and a gold medal. There are also basketballs and hoops, which serve as bonus features in the game.
Features in the game include wild symbols, stacked wilds, scatter symbols and free spins. The game also has cascading wins, which is excellent as it gives out the possibility of daisy chaining together the winning symbols for potentially some huge wins. The game also has a posted return to player (RTP) percentage of 96.5%, which is considered to be very healthy for a Microgaming online slot.
The game itself is a lot of fun and is clearly tailored for those that enjoy basketball. The game oozes style like it's sweat on a point guard in the fourth quarter of a tight game. The cascading wins are simply fantastic, with the game multiple times turning a small win into a large win on the reels.
My largest win on the game came up to being more than 100x my wagered amount thanks to both the cascading reels and the free spins bonus rounds. This game is a ton of fun to play, dare I say it's a "slam dunk" in terms of slots? Yes!
