In terms of titles which will establish new levels of interactivity and employ technology like VR to get closer to the action, this article talks about what is coming in the next wave of sports slots where sports fans get to share the thrill of gaming with this new opportunity for both entertainment and winning.

Detroit Red Wings Winged Reelers

Play'n GO has added an original experience for PokerStars Michigan with its Detroit Red Wings Winged Reelers, which is a slot game inspired by the fans' spirit of Detroit Red Wings and expected to create a splash in the US gambling industry. The game tries to give a glimpse of the emotional way in which the Detroit Red Wings fans identify with their franchise through a virtual ice hockey experience that's almost as if being in the rink, except that you're not lacing up skates.

Hockey is appealing to a narrow category of fans associated with the Red Wings and ice hockey but since the National Hockey League enjoys high popularity in the USA and Canada and the sport enjoys a following in Europe, the viewership of this channel reaches a wider audience.

Fans are transported into a fast-paced arena with high-powered jets of water, music, and flashing lights of every colour, all before anyone has even spun a reel. In this slot game, the main grid is 5 symbols and 3 rows with 25 winning lines available. Players can decide how much money they bet, which can be from 1 cent all the way up to $/€100 and suit many types of betting.

In fact, with its medium volatility combined with the default 96.23% RTP the game offers engaging gameplay and skating makes a perfect sound of skates slicing the ice as participants play the game. The symbols are coming in the form of sports cards suits for the smaller reward, and hockey sticks and skates for higher pay. Wilds are also set on all the reels to create more chances of making big winnings.

More than a game - Detroit Red Wings Winged Reelers is a storyline that unfolds in the ice hockey fans' hearts, taking you through the ups and downs of the game, and helping you to reconnect with your heart of ice hockey.

D10S Maradona

Diego Maradona, a football god from Argentina is remembered in the gaming world by Blueprint Gaming’s D10S Maradona, which is a game honouring his superlative talent exemplified by his long and great career. This game at the same time fuses the tradition of Maradona with a parody based on the sports-themed religion known as D10S which is a smart blend of the 'Dios' a god and the Maradona's number 10 jersey.

Game aesthetics is no less stunning with its set that looks more like a colourful mural, a scrapbook of memories, or a wall in an ardent fan’s room adorned with Maradona images, all compiled with a repeated soundtrack that celebrates this great Argentine. The Gameplay of this D10S Maradona online slot is centred on a 5-reel, 3-row slot machine, with 20 paylines, medium/high volatility level out and 95% RTP as the theoretical. It gives many kinds of bets all in one mobile betting app perfectly engineered for multi-device gaming. 

Furthermore, the D10S bet is a great feature for the players to invest 25% of their bid in getting huge winnings by activating the extra spin round. The game has the Cash Collect mechanic which is in addition to the traditional line wins, the symbols of which range from the J-A royals up to the jerseys representing the different periods of Maradona's career, such as the ones for Boca Juniors, Barcelona, Napoli, and Argentina national team. Payouts range from 5 times the bet for a full line of royals to between 7.5-40 times the bet for jerseys, while the Argentinian wild substitute symbol adds a dynamic play to the game, as it substitutes for everything except scatters or cash symbols.

Football Penny Roller

The Football Penny Roller, a game from Games Global that stands out as a relatively simple option amongst games with stakes that can sometimes be mind-blowingly high is a welcome game not just by the experienced gamer but also the average player.

In football, it even allows a bet to start from a mere 1 cent when it comes to professionals who are known for their expensive lifestyles and vast weekly earnings. Placement on the canvas of a lily-white, neatly green football pitch, The Football Penny Roller preserves a time-honoured design structure across the whole level. There are no bonuses per se, and while pushing the player into delivering an impression of fervour, cheering crowds serve more as a part of the aural experience than gamification.

While this game is certainly a classic, its outdated visuals and sounds might leave modern players wanting the high-end, high-dynamic slot games that have become today's norm, providing documented evidence that the gaming industry has developed and advanced.

The game itself consists of 3 parallel lines of symbols and 1 payline, with it being the medium volatility game, with 95.94% to RTP. This game could be considered a classic in the field of football-themed slot machines, which even though are made up of symbols related to players and referees, do not include elements that many modern slots carry like wilds and scatters.

The largest payout achievable stands at 1111 times the stake when the 3 highest value symbols land with coins falling on three pay lines. While the smallest bets even have the potential to bring nice prizes, this game is a vintage reference to more primitive times in the world of gambling machines.

Big Bass Day at Races

Interestingly, the milieus of online slots and horse betting rarely cross paths, despite their huge impact on the gambling society at large. However, the game that combines these two authentic betting circumstances fairly well is Big Bass Day at the Races. The thematic singularity in this game may appear at odds with what is typical of the fishing games developed by Reel Kingdom and Pragmatic Play. Therefore, rather than choosing an identifiable fishing theme in this game, a horse racing-style theme is preferable.

From above, the shift from aquatic to equine is not as drastic as one may have imagined, given that most of the elements have been retained from the previous game, Big Bass Amazon Xtreme and the only new element is the thematic overlay. This ensures that all players who played the game before now get a familiar gameplay experience with the twist of the new story.

In the scene returning, the recognizable bearded man of the series has an upgrade, swapped his fishing equipment with race tickets and with a playful twist, he even attended a race as a jockey where he rides on a horse.

Hockey Fever Penny Roller

Across the digital gaming sphere, Games Global has situated Hockey Fever Penny Roller as the highest form of slot game at this moment. Gaming enthusiasts can expect nothing but adrenaline-boosting thrills for the rides ahead promised by the bold marketing campaign, which suggests that players' skills will be evaluated in this slot game.

Nevertheless, it is hard to find proof for these claims and thus it raises a question about the real significance of the comparison. The most vocal of the critics have argued that Hockey Fever Penny Roller is totally insipid as well as a carbon copy of its less-than-great spiritual predecessor, Football Penny Roller, which, it is arguable, did not innovate or excite the videogames community in any way.

While simulating the three-reel design as a symbol of a hockey race, this game creates a very simple approach but finally produces just a very marginal gaming experience. The video and audio elements look a bit old-fashioned without putting any effort into novelty; therefore, the slot game is truly old school.

The betting options, going from $/€0.01 to $/€300 (depending on the number of coins bet) allow the game to canvas the whole spectrum of the playing audience. However, the low hit rate of 8.53%, medium volatility, and standard RTP of 95.94% may turn out to be annoying to the users because of their expectancy of a stream of winning spins.

The game keeps away from complex traits, no streaks, no streaks or bonus icons, and undertakes the role of eight simple regular symbols which look like hockey-related skates, dandelions, and player positions. As for the reward that is as high as 1,111 times the wager for three red-clad symbols, the game has only the lack of diversification and innovation in-game as the area of its weakness. However, some players may look forward to more depth and engagement from the slot.
