There is some innate connection between sports and slots. Major sporting events brings out the best in slots players and there is increased wagering on slots games based on the sport. Online gaming software providers are well aware of this and offer an array of sports themed slots games at casinos licensed by them. New sports themed slots games are usually released at the time of appropriate sporting events. This article takes a look at Microgaming sports themed slot games.

Racing based sports are very exciting and none more exciting than horse racing. Microgaming offers two horse racing themed slot games, First Past the Post and Sure Win. First Past the Post has three horses as wild symbols. When they appear together on the reels the free spins round is triggered. The number of free spins is determined by a race in which the horses participate. Good to Go is based on car racing Formula 1 style. The symbols on the reels include racing car, driver with helmet, support staff on a laptop and the checkered flag. Tour de France is an immensely popular cycling race and the Pedal Power video slot is based on that. Being a comparatively later release, it has sleeker graphics all associated with cycle racing. In the wild symbol the trophy is held aloft with the Parisian landmarks rotating in the background.

Wimbledon is the most special of the tennis grand slam events and the slot game themed on this is appropriately called Center Court. The symbols on the reels include tennis players executing various strokes. The bright yellow tennis ball can be seen along side the high value card symbols and by itself as the scatter symbol that triggers the free spins. The Argyle Open is a golf themed slots game. In this slot also there are symbols that depict golfers executing strokes. But these get animated when in winning combinations and therefore the effect is greater. The highlight of this online slot is the bonus game on the second screen in which players get to complete a hole in three competitive stages. At one time Microgaming online casinos participated in the American gambling market. The Hot Shot baseball themed slot was to target American customers. Players will find typical baseball terms like Home Run, Wild Ball and Strike as symbols. A trip to a baseball game is not complete without the eats and drinks and therefore there are hot dogs, French fries and popcorn on the reels.

The Football World Cup and the Olympic Games are the biggest sporting events and Microgaming has taken full advantage of these by timely release of slot games. The best football themed Microgaming online slot is World Cup Mania. Crafted in comic style the symbols on the reels include football, trophy, whistle, football boots and tickets. The slots described so far were five reel video slots. But one Olympic themed slot is a three reel classic slot called Track and Field Mouse. It is a Fruit Machine slot with Hold and Nudge features and three bonus games titled Gold, Silver and Bronze.

All these sports themed games are on offer at all Microgaming online casinos. CasinoAdvisor recommends Royal Vegas, Roxy Palace, Lucky Nugget and All Jackpots.
