About Basketball King Hold and Win

Basketball is one of the world’s most popular sports, currently holding the 7th spot in terms of followers, above baseball and rugby, but below soccer, tennis, and cricket (!).

Sports-based slots are quite a rarity, as, for some reason, they tend to be less engaging than for instance, Egyptian-themed or Nordic-mythology themes slots.

As a result, sports slots are often reskins of successful other slots, and Basketball King Hold and Win by iSoftbet is no exception. It has been heavily inspired by Wolf Gold and tacking on iSoftbets trademark Hold and Win concept does not change that fact one little bit.

Unoriginal gameplay aside, Basketball King Hold and Win does look and sound great, with urban-style depictions of basketball players and a hip-hop soundtrack.

CasinoWizard’s verdict: 2 out of 5 stars

Despite the snazzy presentation, there is nothing new or exciting about Basketball King Hold and Win. The basketball theme also feels a bit random, as if it has just been slapped on, and in no way or form corresponds with the gameplay.
