Most sports themed online slots games are based on football, whether soccer or American. The leading online gaming software provider Rival Gaming has, however, chosen lesser known sports as themes for its unique I-slots. Through typical slots features and innovative bonus games on the second screen these sports are brought alive on the reels.

The latest sports themed I-slot released by Rival Gaming is Bowled Over, which obviously has to do with bowling. The background to the symbols on the reels is patterned like the wooden paneling on the bowling lanes and the spin button is crafted like a bowling ball. It is touches like these that set the atmosphere for a more intense experience. The thematic symbols start with the male and female bowlers. The male bowler offers the highest fixed jackpot and the female bowler triggers the free spins. The bowling pins is the wild symbol and the ball is the bonus symbol. Other thematic symbols are the bowling shoes and beer with snacks. The bowling pins symbol is an expanding wild and the entire reel opens up to reveal a lane with the pins at one end. The ball is rolled and a strike is hit. The bonus game on the second screen is a skill based one. The player gets two throws to knock down as many pins as he can. He can select the spin on the ball and the power imparted and has to figure out which combination maximizes his score.

Heavyweight Gold I-slot has boxing as its theme. The structure is very similar to Bowled Over. The backgrounds to the symbols are transparent and reveal a boxing ring. The thematic symbols include coach, referee, championship belt, punching bag, bell, weights, boxer and medical box. The usual type of Rival Gaming animations can be seen during winning combinations. The boxing gloves are an expanding wild but the visual effect is less dramatic. The highlight of Heavyweight Gold is the bonus game triggered by the knockout symbol. A simulated boxing game takes place on the second screen. The player controls the boxer through defend and attack buttons. The coach issues instructions from the sidelines. Bonus credits are awarded based on the boxer's performance in the bout. After one bonus round is triggered a different opponent appears. This is in keeping with the inherent nature of Rival Gaming I-slot bonus games.

Hole in Won is the golf themed Rival Gaming I-slot. It was one of the earlier I-slots and this is apparent in the more conventional styling of the symbols. But the innovativeness is not missing. The eagle as the wild symbol and the birdie as the bonus symbol with enthuse golf fans. The other golf related symbols include ball, golfer, caddie, golf cart, clubs and shoes. The eagle is yet again an expanding wild symbol. It hits the golf ball which goes rolling across the reels. The bonus game in Hole in Won is the most skill based among the sports themed Rival Gaming I-slots. There is a 9 hole golf course and each time the bonus round is triggered players get to play a different hole. Players have to use the mouse pointer to give direction to the ball. The power is decided by the spacing between the ball and the pointer. And it is not a simple attempt to get a hole in one because there will be obstructions in the path.

All these sports themed I-slots can be played at Rival Gaming online casinos. CasinoAdvisor recommends Ruby Royal online casino and Sloto' Cash online casino.
