Basketball Star On Fire Slot Free Play
Basketball Star On Fire
Following games like Basketball Star and Basketball Star Deluxe, Microgaming is now launching a third game which is based on this sport. It’s called Basketball Star On Fire, and it’s going to use similar graphics to the previous titles. That’s just a testament to a design done right, the fact that they didn’t feel the need to overhaul it completely. Of course, the reels are placed inside a basketball arena, and you see the stands filled with spectators all around.
If you get back on the reels, you will find among its symbols images of gold and silver coins as scatters, along with wild coins, basketball scatters, game logo wilds, four high value symbols showing players, along with five low paying ones which show medals, shoes, water bottles, strategy notebooks and a referee’s whistle.
Though it’s part of a series from Microgaming, the game was actually built by a partner of theirs, called Pulse 8 Studios. The slot is an exclusive for Microgaming’s operators. The two have also collaborated on slots like Ladies Nite 2 or Carnaval Jackpot, among others.
How To Play It
Setting up the wager in Basketball Star On Fire allows you to pick the total amount which will cover the next round. Bets will go from $0.25 to $100, so it’s the type of range that covers everyone’s possibilities.
5×3 reels are available, along with 25 paylines. Getting paid requires the usual 3 to 5 matching symbols, all landing on the same active line, and left to right.
A big feature in Basketball Star On Fire, is the Hyperhold, a bonus respin that is easily found in a lot of slots these days. It requires certain coin scatters landing in view, 6 or more in a single round, before you can access it. You then go through 3 respins, where you’re looking to get additional symbols of that type, besides the sticky ones that triggered them. Whenever you have new symbols land, the respins reset back to 3.
At the end of the feature, you will get paid a random amount by each coin you collected. Additional fixed jackpots, ranging from a Mini to a Mega, will be possible as well. Up to 1,000x the stake can be paid by those.
There will be wild symbols for you to get and use as well. As substitutes, these should come in handy, even though their effect isn’t always that powerful.
Next, let’s take a look at the game logo scatters, symbols which you can use to get into the free spins. 10 to 25 rounds are triggered through those 3 to 5 symbols, with the possibility to retrigger the feature. Wild coins are available on reel 5, for the entire duration of the feature.
The game’s considered a medium-high volatility option, so you do risk a bit with it. In exchange, it only pays up to 2,500x the stake in one round, so it looks like there was room for more. Given that the RTP is 95.98%, I think that they could’ve made the slot more appealing, and there are a lot of other titles which have a better return and payouts.
Basketball Star On Fire looks like a decent new option in the series, featuring quite a few extra options along the way, but most of them will be special features that you can easily get elsewhere as well.
