Basketball Themed Online Slots

Published on: November 5, 2011 

The new NBA season will be starting later this year. NBA is an American basketball tournament but it is followed all over the world. Once this tournament starts, online casinos will start offering bonuses and promotions based on it in order to cash in on its popularity. The traffic on basketball themed online slots will also increase. Three such slot games have been extremely popular over the years. This article provides a recap on those games.

The basketball themed online slot game released by the software provider Realtime Gaming earlier this year has been extremely popular. One of the reasons is that Realtime Gaming is one of the few software providers that still services players from the United Stated. Perhaps the more relevant reason for the popularity is that Basketbull is a direct reference to Chicago Bulls, the most famous basketball team worldwide. In the Basketbull online slot game animals represent the various characters involved in a game of basketball. The bull is the basketball player. It is also the wild symbol and offers the highest fixed jackpot of 10,000 coins. Some of the other symbols are cow as the cheerleader, bulldog as the coach and ram as the referee. The high value card symbols from Ace to Nine are designed like basketball jersey numbers. The free spins bonus has a Free Throw Feature. For each basketball symbol that appears on the reels the bull takes a free throw. If he gets the ball in the net the number of free spins is doubled. Basketbull can be played at all Realtime Gaming online casinos like Club World, Rushmore and Slots Jungle.

The second basketball themed online slot game is from the software provider Playtech. It is titled Dennis Rodman after the volatile Hall of Famer whose popularity rivaled that of Michael Jordan. Rodman was nicknamed Menace and The Worm and the symbols on the slot game show that side of his character. The symbols include Rodman in a bridal outfit, Rodman with face painted white and hair painted red and Rodman with rainbow dyed hair amidst the more normal images of the basketball player. There is a basketball signed by him and his painted sports car. The basketball is the bonus symbol and three or more of these activate the bonus game on the second screen. There are a number of basketballs on a basketball court. The player picks the specified number of balls, which award bonus credits.

The third basketball themed slot game is Nothin But Net from the software provider Cryptologic. It has symbols on the reels like black player, white player, tickets, net, sports drink, mascots, scoreboard, cheerleaders, sneakers, basketball and whistle. The largest fixed jackpot of 3,000 coins is hit when five black player symbols appear on an active payline. Five white players on an active payline award a fixed jackpot 1,000 coins. Nothin But Net offers a free spin bonus game, which is activated when the Logo symbol appears on reels 1 and 5. The player is awarded 15 free spins in which all payouts are tripled. The free spins can be re-triggered if the activating combination appears again. Nothin But Net can be played at all Cryptologic online casinos like InterCasino.
