The American basketball season is in full swing. In the NBA the teams are jockeying for positions to the playoff rounds. In the NCAA the March Madness is on where the college teams are engaged in a hectic elimination tournament. Many online casinos have promotions based on basketball during this month. And the basketball themed slot games from the leading software providers draw traffic. This article outlines some of the more popular basketball themed online slot games.

The leading software provider Cryptologic offers a nine payline basketball themed online slot game called Nothing But Net. The reels are set in the midst of a basketball court with the spectators in the background. The symbols are all related to basketball and include different basket ball players, match tickets, team mascots, cheerleaders, sneakers, sports drinks, score boards, whistles, basketballs and nets. The Logo symbol is the wild symbol and appears only on reel 1 and reel 5. When one or more Logo symbols complete a winning combination the payouts are doubled. When the Logo symbol appears on both reel 1 and reel 5 then 15 free spins are awarded to the player. These free spins have tripled payouts and can be retriggered.

The Vegas Technology basketball themed online slot game is called Money Shot, a reflection of the money that is in basketball. Money Shot is a 20 payline video slot with a fixed jackpot of 10,000 coins. And if players choose the largest coin size of $10 then the payout amounts to $100,000. The symbols on the reels are taken from the basketball game and the audio of a ball bouncing accompanies the reels coming to a stop. Apart from the wild symbol, scatter symbol and free spins Money Shot offers an exciting bonus game on the second screen. In this game the slots player chooses one of the hoops displayed. Then the basketball player on the screen lobs the ball towards the hoop and if it goes through the hoop then bonus credits are awarded.

Dennis Rodman is a basketball legend. He has been enshrined in the Basketball Hall of Fame for his many achievements and has been called the best rebounding forward in the history of NBA. The Playtech basketball themed slot game is dedicated to him and is titled Dennis Rodman. Most of the symbols on the reels depict various facets of Rodman including his glamorous side with multi-colored hair. They also include Rodman’s two passions – basketball and sports car. The Wild and Scatter logos are the wild and scatter symbols. Playtech Dennis Rodman slot game offers both a bonus game on the second screen and a free spins bonus round.

The newest basketball themed slot game is from Realtime Gaming. It was released earlier this basketball season and is titled Basketbull, with the reference to Chicago Bulls being obvious. Basketbull has a somewhat comic twist to the basketball theme because the characters are all animals. The basketball player is a bull, the cheerleader is a cow, the referee is a ram and the coach is a bulldog. The high value card symbols are fashioned like the numbers on a basketball jersey. One of the highlights of the Basketbull slot game is that it offers up to 96 free spins. And there are two randomly triggered progressive jackpots.
