Who doesn’t love a good old game of sports?
Whether it be football, cricket, rugby, tennis or even a little darts session (yes, that is a sport), having an active leisure activity is a great way of staying healthy. There is definitely a sport out there for everybody and if you haven’t got one, Bucky wants you to go and find one!
Particularly in England, where Bucky Bingo originated, sport is a massive part of everybody’s day to day lives. Some of our nation’s most popular teams are Manchester United, Liverpool, Warrington Wolves and Lancashire Country cricket. Alongside these clubs, we also have many national sides, some of whom do better than others.
So, seeing as though sport is evidently such a large part of English culture, we make sure to offer some sport slots to all our players. There are plenty of different themes to be found inside our online slot machines, with sport being one of the most popular.
Fancy experiencing a slice of action on the field online? See below for information on our top two sports slots. Both games are developed by Eyecon and they can be played right here at Bucky Bingo.
Football is the most popular sport in England. From the drama in the top tiers like the Premier League and Championship, all the way down to grass roots, the English go mental for a bit of footy. The country has some of the best teams in the world with United, Liverpool and Manchester City, with the sport brining in large volumes of tourism from abroad.
Unfortunately though, we haven’t experienced so much success on a national level. With just one World Cup in our trophy cabinet, us modern fans are still waiting to celebrate a major international trophy. We came close with Gareth Southgate’s young Three Lions in 2018, but it wasn’t meant to be.
Anyway, enough crying over our football miseries and back onto the sport slots guide. The Striker Goes Wild slot is a footy themed game developed by Eyecon. As you would expect, the slot machine is based inside a football stadium with the lush green field being placed behind the reels. The grid format of the screen is 5x3 with 25 paylines – unlike scoring a cup final goal, the gameplay is very straightforward!
Not only does the backdrop contribute towards the slot theme, but the symbols do too. There are football boots, goalkeeper gloves, whistles and a net to find inside the reels. Alongside these ordinary icons, there are two bonus symbols too. The football acts as the Wild and it can replace for all other symbols inside the game, bar the Scatter.
The Scatter is the picture of the two footballers and this symbol can unlock the bonus game. If three of them land onto the middle reel at once, the Striker Goes Wild feature will be unlocked. Your screen will divert to an animation of players kicking the ball around, before one of them unleashes you through on goal!
Wherever the striker scores a goal, this position on the reels will turn into Wild symbols. Potentially, you could earn some big winnings from this round. Being a striker is all about the pride and glory, so hopefully you can see a few goals be scored when playing.
Unsurprisingly, this slot is one of Bucky’s personal favourites. Why? Well, it’s a horse racing themed game!
Set on a bright green track, the Past the Post slot invites you out to a day at the races. There are symbols like spectators, celebratory bottles, trainers, jockeys and of course, the horses themselves. In total, there are four different ones that could come racing down onto your reels. The most valuable one though is the no.1 placed horse, who has a golden ribbon proudly tied to their collar.
Another symbol that is quite special is the money tote bag. This symbol has the potential to unlock free spins and a big multiplying value if you land three of them onto the reels at once. Should this happen, you will be given a selection of how many spins are granted to you – remember though, the more spins you choose, the lower your multiplier will be.
Eyecon have definitely nailed the horse racing theme in this sport slot, which you can play right here from 25p a spin. The setting and symbols are what give the video slot such a special feel and the gameplay is also easy to follow. With an RTP of 95.2%, there is the potential to unlock some big cash winnings! Giddy up and race on down with Bucky Bingo.
