There has always been a connection between sports and video games. If you enjoy participating in or just watching sporting events then you are sure to have thrills playing digital games with the same theme. Sports fans also have a great time gambling, both in land based casinos and on the internet. As a matter of fact, sports themed slot games are immensely popular with gamblers from all over the world and many large as well as lesser known gaming software developers create them. Sports Star Series is one of the best known collections of slot games with a sports theme.
The Sports Star Series of slots games is available on many casinos because it has the ability to draw in customers. The games that it consists of are all very exciting and they are made with great attention to detail. The series starts off with the Football Star game which is themed on soccer. This game was launched at the same time as the worldwide football fever on account of the FIFA World Cup. Other sports covered in the series are Ice Hockey, Cricket, Rugby, and Basketball. Incidentally, the rugby game was released just in time to take advantage of the excitement surrounding the Rugby World Championship.
These games have been created by industry leader Microgaming, which has made more than 600 different slot games so far, and they have what it takes to keep a sports-mad gambler busy. These sports themed video slot games can be played for cash or for free. Players who choose the free play option can no doubt have a great time seeing the reel spin but they cannot hope to win any money or participate in exciting promotions.
These exciting video slot games are available on a number of popular gambling sites. Each of the games in this series has five reels and three rows. In all, they give gamblers 243 different opportunities to win money. The games also have attractive features such as cascading wins (when symbols that make up winning combinations vanish from the screen to be replaced by others, thereby increasing the chances of additional wins) and Free Spins. These games have been given high quality graphics and realistic stadium sounds in addition to 3D animation, as a result of which they provide a highly immersive experience. As an added touch, the scatter symbol used in every game is the image of the ball or puck used to play that particular game. The sound effects that accompany a winning combination make one feel like one is in a real stadium!
Themed slots games are incredibly popular with gamblers because they provide an additional level of enjoyment over and above the excitement of winning the game. It is therefore no surprise that gaming software developers work on these types of games instead of making ordinary ones. It will be interesting to see what additional sport the developer adds to this series, given that the existing titles are getting a great deal of play on online casinos.
