Get ready! It’s time to shoot some hoops!
The sports theme is often used in slot design, which is not a surprise if we have in mind the millions of dedicated fans of different sports all over the planet.
The most frequently used as a theme is football because, after all, it’s the world’s favorite pastime. But following closely behind is a game invented by Dr. James Naismith …
… in 1891 in Springfield, Massachusetts, so that his students, young athletes, could burn off the energy indoors during cold winter months. That sport goes by the name of Basketball!
EvoPlay used this great sport as the inspiration and created exquisite video slot.
In the backdrop …
… you can see the court and the bleachers filled with energized supporters of both teams. The background of the reels is actually the basketball court layout.
The soundtrack is impressive, with rock ‘n’ roll guitar riffs and cheering crowd.

The Wild, represented as the basketball hoop, substitutes all symbols bar scatter. Also, if you land a Wild and it doesn’t take part in creating a winning combo, you’ll be rewarded with one re-spin and a sticky Wild.
The Scatter, a.k.a. the flaming ball, is responsible for triggering the bonus rounds.
Besides the sticky Wild and re-spin during the main game, there is one more special feature.
The additional feature in the title is the bonus spins, which gets activated when players land 3 or more Scatters. You get 8 rounds, and every Wild that lands during these rounds are a sticky Wild, helping to create even more winning combinations.
