Baseball shouldn’t need too much of an introduction, at least in terms of its theme, which is easy to guess. This video slot has been designed by GamePlay Interactive, and contains three separate bonus features, which is rather exciting. The developers of this slot have tried to incorporate 3D graphics into the game, but they don’t really look the part. That has an adverse effect on how you feel about the game, if we’re being honest. Baseball features 5 reels and 30 lines, none of which are adjustable. Players can choose line bets which range from 0.05 up to 500.00, so the total wagering range is very costly indeed, at 1.50 per spin, up to 15,000.00 per spin. Nobody is going to wager that kind of money on this slot, no matter what it can offer. As it happens, the jackpot is non-progressive and is fixed at a paltry 400 coins in all.
This slot charges 1.50 per spin, and would you believe that there is no wild in the base game? What kind of madness is this? There is a free spins bonus, though, and that is only triggered by landing 3 of the scoreboard scatter icons on the reels during a single spin. Players will be treated to 4 free spins, and it is during this feature that the wild symbol appears. That wild is an expanding icon, and can appear on the second, third, fourth, and second reel in rotation on each spin. Wilds can substitute for all other symbols, save for the two other bonus icons. You cannot even retrigger the free spins feature in this slot, which is another shame.
There are two bonus symbols in this slot, and they in turn can trigger two separate bonus rounds. One of these is the Batter Box bonus. This is triggered by landing 3 or more baseball bats on any reels. This can see you select one of the 3 balls to help the batter, and win a cash prize along the way.
This rather disappointing slot machine also offers another Baseball Pitch bonus, which is triggered by landing 3 gloves on any reels. Once the bonus begins, players can choose 3 out of 8 baseball globes to pitch the ball and win yet more instant cash prizes.
There are better baseball theme slots out there, and they are often cheaper, carry better features, and bigger cash prizes. Baseball is fine if you want a more realistic baseball themed slot, but it doesn’t offer you the best wagers, prizes, or features by some way.
