If you like sports and love to gamble, odds are you're already playing on a sportsbook. But that's not the only way you can have fun! Today, there are tons of online slots based on real sports teams and events. They're a great choice if you want the thrill of your favourite sport but are tired of making the same old bets. Check out these 5 action-packed slot games to get started.

Golden Tour

Fore! If you're in the mood to head out onto the green and putt your way to victory, Golden Tour is the game for you. It's certainly not a fancy slot - it's one of Playtech's oldest games - but we think it's a worthy addition to our list.

First off, there are only 5 lines. We know from experience that games with a lot of lines can make it hard to see whether or not you actually won, so 5 lines are a nice change of pace. Plus, they run from left-to-right and right-to-left so you get double the winning chances.

Trigger the Golden Tour bonus by lining up a set of Moles, Ducks, or Fish. Then put on your golf gear and see if you can get a hole-in-one! Don't worry: no golf skills required.

Football Legends

Are you a football fanatic? Playtech's Football Legends is a one-of-a-kind game that takes a second look at some of football's biggest stars over the years. From Franz Beckenbauer and Johan Cruyff to Bobby Charlton and Alfredo di Stefano, this is the slot that the legends call home.

When you play Football Legends, you'll want to keep your eye on two bonus features. The first is a free spins bonus with a second wild that boosts your wins by 4x. The second will take you to the Wall of Fame. Just pick the right players and pocket your cash instantly. No need to break a sweat!

Football Star

There's nothing like a cheering stadium to get your adrenaline pumping, and that's what Microgaming's Football Star can do for you. This online slot puts you right in the centre of the field in the heat of the World Cup. So get your game face on and start spinning!

Football Star makes it easy to get big wins even outside of the bonuses. There are 243 winning combinations, and after you hit a win, more symbols will fall into place. This is pretty cool by itself, but as these Rolling Reels continue, you'll get higher and higher multipliers on your wins. And don't forget about the Football Free Spins with up to a 10x multiplier!

Cricket Star

Love a little running and striking action? Well, you can't go wrong with Cricket Star. This Microgaming title has plenty of hard-hitting action, and every spin is as surprising as a good cricket match.

The game's signature feature is the Wild Wickets. These appear regularly on the reels, but things get a little crazy when you hit the random Wild Wickets Bonus. Reels 2, 3, and 4 can turn wild. You don't have to be a cricket pro to see how that can turn into a lot of cash in a hurry, especially with 243 ways to win. Plus, you'll trigger the Rolling Reels feature on every single win you hit, boosting your win multiplier every step of the way. This multiplier goes even higher in the free spins feature, up to 10x!

Rugby Star

If you don't mind getting down and dirty, you'll definitely want to check out Rugby Star. The game packs a ton of action into every spin, and hey: at least you don't have to worry about getting knocked out.

Rugby Star is another game that features the lucrative Rolling Reels feature. So, every win you get is a guaranteed entry into the feature. You'll get more symbols and a bigger multiplier on every win. Keep it going and even a few Rugby Cleats can turn into major moolah. The multipliers get even bigger in the free spins bonus, too!

Oh, and keep your eyes peeled while you play. Any spin can turn into a Wild Pass! Try to catch as many wilds as you can on the reels. If you've got a perfect winning touch, you'll fill the reels with them and rake in the cash.

Hit the Field and Play!

So, if you've got an itch to play some sports, remember that you've got options. These 5 games are a great start into the world of sports slots, and there's a lot more to discover.
