If 6 or more coin symbols appear on the reels, they will immediately become sticky and the rest of the reel positions will be vacated as the game awards you 3 respins. Any new coins that land during the respins will also become sticky.
The coins all have a cash value attached to them, or the Mini, Minor, Major, and Mega jackpots that pay 15x, 20x, 50x, and 100x your stake. The combined coin values will pay out once the round is over and if you fill the entire grid with coins, you will win the Grand jackpot worth 1000x your stake.
Landing 3, 4, or5 scatters will award you 10, 15, or 25 free spins. Reel 5 is filled with stacked wild coins for the duration of the feature, giving you greater winning chances and helping you trigger HyperHold more frequently. Landing 3 or 4 scatters while the feature is active will award you an additional 10 or 15 free spins.
Basketball Star on Fire is thematically faithful to the original, but have the feature changes made it a better slot? There isn’t much different in the look and feel of this slot when comparing it to its predecessor. but with the removal of the rolling reels and stacked symbols, it is an entirely different slot. The HyperHold Feature regularly provides winning opportunities and is the path to winning the slot’s max potential of $250 000.
The free spins feature is also fairly lucrative and increases your chances of hitting the top prize. This is a competent title that lacks the pizzazz of the title that inspired it and may have worked better with an entirely different theme as it suffers by comparison.
