Sports and games – these often go hand in hand. And if games of chance are added to the mix, the result might often be fantastic. The right combination of excitement, anticipation, and fast-paced action will make the resulting games not only fun to play, but perhaps even profitable in the long run. And the games I’m about to introduce you today fit this description perfectly.
The Sports Star series
The Sports Star series is a name collectively used for a handful of slot machines available at the All Slots online casino. They are great games on their own, of course, but their story makes them special. You see, the Sports Stars was conceived as a tribute to sports themselves, not individual teams or players. And the release dates of the games at the All Slots Casino coincided with major events in their respective sports. Choose from a wide variety of slot machines at All Slots.
The first game in the Sports Star series was Football Star, a soccer-themed game, which was a huge success at the All Slots Casino. No wonder – its release was timed perfectly to coincide with the kickoff of the 2014 FIFA World Cup, when the whole world was burning in soccer fever. The series went silent for almost a year – but in 2015, three more games Sports Star games were released: Rugby Star, Cricket Star, and Basketball Star. They were all built on the same mechanic, and all of them were considerably successful. No new parts have been announced yet, but I expect new titles to be released in the series in the near future, covering sports that are maybe less European by nature.
How to play
Playing any slot machine in the Sports Star series is very simple. The games have five reels, three rows, and 243 ways to win. Their reels are filled with symbols representing their respective sports – balls, players, referees, and their likes. Usually the balls used in any game are chosen to have the special role of triggering the games’ Free Spins side games.
What makes the Sports Star series special is the games’ cascading wins feature, called “Rolling Reels” by the developer. This will cause all symbols in a winning combination to disappear from the screen, much like in a game of Candy Crush. Other symbols fall into their place, and if they form new winning combinations, they disappear as well. These cascading wins are especially useful during Free Spins, when each subsequent win increases the multiplier applied to the next.
Where to play
All Sports Star series games are available for free play, or real money play, at the All Slots Casino. It’s a reputable gaming portal with a long history. Unfortunately, it doesn’t accept US players, but you can still play its games in “practice mode” any day.
