Microgaming November Pokies Released

November 9, 2015


A number of Microgaming pokies have gone live last week at Australian online and mobile casinos. Speaking about the flagship release Mike Hebden, Head of Casino Games at Microgaming, said, “This month we’re adding to the collection of sporting games we offer with Basketball Star. Packing the excitement of a major league final, we’re confident the game will be a crowd-pleaser.” Basketball Star was simultaneously released on download, instant play and mobile, ensuring that Australian players will be able to enjoy the game no matter what their preferred platform is.

Basketball Star follows the template of the earlier sports themed online pokies in the series, but with the flavour of basketball. The audio track contains the crowd cheering from the sidelines and a Hip-Hop soundtrack. The animated players as the high paying symbols take you to the NBA arena with the 243 ways to win format delivering frequent slam dunks. Three or more scatter basketball symbols award up to 25 free spins, in which the ever popular Rolling Reels feature comes with a multiplier trail of up to 10 times. Microgaming says that you can also shoot lucky with the random Wild Shot bonus feature in the base game in which one or two reels can turn wild, guaranteeing a win.

The Microgaming mobile portfolio has three more additions via conversion of popular desktop pokies to the mobile format. Hebden pointed out that Microgaming has the industry’s biggest portfolio of mobile games. These are So Many Monsters, So Much Candy and So Much Sushi. The bright and colorful symbols will light up your mobile screens. The structure of the games is similar and you can choose depending on what you prefer most – monsters, sushi or candy. The highlight of these pokies is that you can have winning combinations up to 25 symbols long. Each of the main symbols can split up to five. If you have the same symbol on each reel on an active payline and each of them splits into five you will have a 25 symbol win. The free spins feature gives you a choice. Essentially you have to choose between fewer free spins with each spin having a higher payout potential and more free spins with each spin having a lower payout potential.

All these pokies are live at Microgaming powered Australian online casinos and mobile casinos of Casino Mate, Royal Vegas, Jackpot City and All Slots.
