Available now at some of our top-rated UK online casinos is the new Basketball Star on Fire online slot. It was developed by Pulse 8 Studios, and it’s brought to you by Microgaming. Pulse 8 Studios is the same independent studio that developed the Lucky Twins Jackpot, Treasures of Lion City, and Relic Seekers online slot machines, all of which can now be found at Rizk Casino, Mr Green Casino, 32 Red Casino, Slots Magic Casino, Party Casino, Casino.com, and PlayOJO Casino.

This brand new Sports/Basketball-themed online slot is also the follow-up to the original Basketball Star online slot from Microgaming that first arrived in casinos back in November 2015, and central to this exciting new version is the HyperHold game mechanic. It comes with 5 reels and 25 fixed paylines, and the wide betting range caters to all budgets. For example, low rollers will soon be able to play from as little as £0.50 per spin, and high rollers will be able to spend up to £500 per spin. The top coin prize that you can play to win is capped at 2,500x times your total stake.

The game also has several individual fixed coin jackpots to play for, the largest of which is worth 1,000x times your stake. The most important symbols to keep an eye out for are the Bonus Symbols (the coins), the Wild Symbols (the Basketball Star on Fire Logo), and the Scatter Symbols (the Basketballs). The HyperHold Respins feature will trigger when 6 or more Coin Bonus Symbols land anywhere in view on the same spin, and the Free Spins Bonus will trigger when 3 or more Scatter Symbols land anywhere in view on the same spin.

The HyperHold feature starts with 3 respins, and any Coin Symbols that are in view will lock in place. Each time another Coin Symbol lands, the respin counter will reset to 3 (and those coins will also lock in place), and the feature will only end when the counter has reached zero or when all symbol positions have been filled with coins. These coins come with either a cash value attached to them or a jackpot symbol – the Mini, Minor, Major or Mega Jackpot Symbols. The cash value coins can be worth 15X, 20X, 50X, or 100X times your total stake. At the end of the feature, your prizes will be added together and paid out in one lump sum.

In the Free Spins Bonus, a fully stacked Wild Symbol is active on reel 5 (the rightmost reel) on each spin throughout the bonus. Additional Free Spins can also be retriggered during the bonus.
