Bonus slots are video slots that offer a bonus game on the second screen. Sports themed video slots provide an opportunity for incorporating innovative and exciting bonus games that in some way go beyond the simple picking of objects. Through attractive animations and graphics these games simulate some aspects of the sport represented in the slot game.

Because Euro 2012 is critically poised, it is appropriate to begin with a football themed online slot game. One the best football themed bonus game was seen in the Ash Gaming title Sensible Soccer. Apart from the game being triggered in the usual manner players can buy it by paying 30 times the total stake. The bonus game simulates the knockout stages of the UEFA Champions League. Animations of the highlights of goals and near misses are optionally available. The further the player’s chosen team progresses in the simulated competition the more money he will win. Better teams are more likely to progress further but offer lower payouts. If a player’s team scores ten or more goals in one round then the progressive jackpot is hit.

With Wimbledon starting later this month Tennis Stars from Playtech will start drawing traffic. In the Championship Bonus game on the second screen the player plays a simulated singles game against the computer. The player has to first choose whether he wants to play men’s singles or women’s singles. The player then chooses between a flat serve and a slice serve. The player always wins the game in Tennis Stars. The bonus credits awarded depend on the game score. If the player wins the game at love then the payout is 50 times the total bet. The number of aces served determines the multiplier. If four aces are served in the game the multiplier is 5 times.

Playtech also offers a branded boxing themed slot game titled Rocky that is based on the Sylvester Stallone movies. The Knockout Bonus is the game n the second screen. Players have to choose an opponent for Rocky from Apollo, Ivan and Clubber. These are some of the boxers Rocky actually takes on in the movies. Rocky will fight a 10-round simulated match with the chosen opponent. For every round that Rocky wins, the player wins a cash prize. All matches end with a knockout in Rocky’s favor. All rounds after the knockout are deemed won by Rocky and payouts are awarded for those rounds.

A bonus game that is really interactive and skill based is available in the Rival Gaming golf themed title Hole in Won. This is one of the most popular Rival Gaming i-slots and covers a 9-holes golf course in the bonus rounds. The first time the bonus game on the second screen is triggered the player is taken to Hole 1. Thereafter the software automatically moves to the next hole till all nine are completed. A continuous score sheet is displayed in the usual golf format, depicting the hole number, the par for that hole, the number of strokes taken and the above or below par score. At each hole the player receives bonus credits depending on the number of strokes taken to complete the hole. The skill element involves in giving direction and power to the golf ball by appropriately locating the cursor in relation to the ball.
