Here are some of Microgaming’s best sports themed slots that can get you in the mood for your favourite upcoming sporting event, and possibly a giant jackpot win while you’re at it.
Back in 2012 Microgaming released Break Away. Based on Ice Hockey, this slot features 243 ways to win, Rolling Reels™ and a Smashing Wild™ feature which literally sees hockey players randomly smash their way through the middle reels turning them wild. The slot is set in a rink and features players, pucks, Zamboni’s, skates and more.
In 2014 came Football Star, the first in a series of action packed sports themed slots. Football Star was based on Break Away with the same features such as 243 ways to win and Rolling Reels™ but this slot being football oriented has Striking Wilds where the striker randomly appears kicking a goal towards the middle reels making them wild. Microgaming then went on to release Cricket Star, Rugby Star and Basketball Star all of which feature the same game play action that revolves around its respective sporting theme.
World Cup Mania
World Cup Mania, another great football themed slot from Microgaming has five reels and fifteen paylines. This is a cartoonlike rendition of the World Cup with symbols represented by football items and food for the spectators. There are free spins to win and a free kick bonus game.
