Personal testers’ opinion

We’re no big basketball fans, but this slot made us enthusiastic at times. Statistically, the Free Spins are triggered on the Basketball star slot machine only every 174th spin (0.57%). Moreover, you shouldn’t be super excited about them with this slot, as they don’t bring ‘big money.’ Only 15% of the prize pool is reserved for the Free Spins, which explains the poor performance of many bonus rounds. 85% of the bets are set aside for the main game payouts. Then no wonder that during our tests in the usual spins, we reached a massive win of 356x the bet, while during the Free Spins, we only managed to hit around 26x total bets. This is not the worst, nor the best slot to complete the bonus requirements. Our wagering meter here shows 4.27 (out of 10).
