Ah, I didn’t know that bulls can play basketball! But in a virtual world, bulls can play anything, right?! Yeah, right. Basketbull is a game for balls, err, I mean, Basketball game for bulls, and an interesting one at that too. Graphics and sound are typical of any game from Real Time Gaming stable – very nice but not outstanding, but then again, this isn’t a new game anyway, so can’t expect anything amazing. 1 star down.
Just look at the paytable! Why can’t all games be based on this? 5 Wilds pay 10000x the line bet, 5 Scatters pay 200x total bet, and every other symbol have nice high win values! Almost at par with the best from Playtech’s paytable, the only kind that’s acceptable to me! This is up to my expectations, so no star down/up.
What about game features in Basketbull? Well, there’s a free spins feature game, the Free Throw game, which can award up to 96 free throws for some exciting big wins. There’s the Win-Win feature too, whereby you are always guaranteed a win of up to 100x your total bet amount each and every time from the Free Throw feature game. On top of these, there’s a Minor Jackpot and there’s a Major Jackpot offering, both randomly activated, so you can actually win any of the two jackpots at any time! Anything more would be a real bonus, but what’s there is sufficient for satisfying your demands and desires. No star down/up.
Most importantly, the game play. I’ve played Basketbull many times over the years. The play can be like water leaking out of a bottle, or like water shooting out of a geyser. Yes, the game play can go either way, with bad payouts or excitingly good payouts. The free throws wins are tripled and each successful throw into the basket doubles the number of free spins won, up to a possible 96 free spins, the free spins can be retriggered, plus a guaranteed win from the Win-Win feature too. Sadly though, there are no expanding wilds in Basketbull, otherwise some really huge payouts can be won, especially when you have 96 chances at it! Still, I’ve had a 100x total bet win in one of the free spins game before (24 spins), and that was satisfying. Never had the chance to reach the 48 mark, much less the 96 mark, but if I do get it one of these days, I’d probably fall out of my chair in excitement! One of the best games from Real Time Gaming! Everything as expected, so no star down/up.
