Great Mobile Slots Built with Sports Fans in Mind

Sports are among the most popular forms of entertainment today. People watch them live, on TV, on the internet, and play games that put them inside the skin of athletes, drivers, and other sports-related individuals like managers and coaches, all the time, all over the world. As such, sports has left its footprint on almost all areas of the entertainment industry, inspiring movies and songs, TV shows and video games of all shapes and sizes, down to the simplest and easiest to play ones, like slot machines. Today, we'll take a brief look at the latter type of games, built with sports fans in mind, that can be played easily on the go.

The "Sports Star" series
Microgaming, a game developer based in the Isle of Man, has a history of over two decades in providing players all over the world with some of the most popular casual games. A few years ago, the company has gone mobile, providing gaming venues like the Vegas Palms - one of the oldest in business - with a wide variety of smartphone-optimized titles. Today, the library of Vegas Palms mobile casino games has over 150 titles, and quite a few of them are inspired by or related to sports. The games in the Sports Star series are among the most-played sports-inspired titles at the Vegas Palms and beyond. The series was kicked off (literally) by a soccer-inspired title, Football Star, right before the start of the 2014 FIFA World Cup. As the game has proven to be very popular, a series of other titles followed it, covering sports like cricket, rugby, and basketball. All games share the same appealing mechanic, with several bonuses and extra features, giving sports-savvy Vegas Palms players a quick way to have fun on the go.

Shoot! is a game paying an homage not only to the golden age of soccer, the most followed sport in the world but also to one of the longest-running UK-based soccer publication, Shoot Magazine. The game is built with a retro look and feel, reaching out to the magazine's popular sticker collecting appendix as a source of inspiration. Its reels are filled with the likenesses of some of the biggest names in international football - players like Diego Maradona, Pelé, Franz Beckenbauer, and George Best. All this with a lot of atmosphere and fun that will appeal to soccer fans and slot machine lovers alike.

Other sports
The Vegas Palms Mobile has several games for fans of other popular sports, too - soccer isn't the only popular sport, after all. Among them, you can find games inspired by tennis (Centre Court), ice hockey (Break Away), deep sea fishing (Reel Spinner), and many others. All of them can be tried free over the internet.
