Slot machines for sports fans-What’s your game?
Canadians are a proud nation of outdoor people that simply love sports, especially hockey, ice hockey first, all other sports second! Other sports, Canadians have a fondness for in no particular order are winter sports (anything that you can do competitively in the snow), football/soccer, fishing, golf, car racing, tennis, and horse racing to name a few. Canadians love activities that challenge us.

There is sure to be a slot machine that pays homage to your favourite sport. Many come in the shape of 3D video slots with 5 reels, multiple win lines and are bursting with features that are sure to get those competitive juices flowing!

Today, we take a look at a few of the best sport themed slot machines that may just be your game. These can be played for free or for real money at top online casinos and have been designed by some of the best game developers out there.

Ice Hockey
Only fair we start with ice hockey. Playtech brings you Ice Hockey, a 5 reel with 15 paylines video slot that does the sport proud. First, you get to pick the two teams playing one another, I chose Canada vs U.S.A, so all the characters in play represent one of these two teams. The home team creates left to right combinations and the away team right to left. Free game symbols come in the shape of the competing countries flags which can trigger up to 12 free spins.

The lower value symbols are playing cards decorated with ice hockey gear and the higher value symbols are represented by characters from the two teams you picked to compete. Pay attention for the special symbols which are the puck, the goal net wild symbol, and the Ice Hockey logo. This is a slot definitely worth taking a slapshot at.

The world's most popular sport by a long margin has its fair share of slot machines dedicated to celebrating the game of life. NetEnt released Football Champions Cup in conjunction with Euro 2016 which was won by outsiders Portugal. It is bursting with features, wilds, free spins and penalty shootouts. Choose your favourite team and lead them to victory!

Other slot machines that bow to the great game you may want to have a shot at are Football Stars and Shoot, both developed by Microgaming. Shoot has 5 reels with 50 paylines and 4 bonus rounds to keep you entertained. It takes us back to the nostalgic days when true footballing legends like Maradona, Cruff, George Best, and Pele mesmerised us with their wonderfully silky skills.

It is debatable if fishing is actually a real sport but if trying to catch a big one is your thing then you should cast your line on Reel Strike (Microgaming) and see what bites. Try to hook a red snapper, barracuda, flying fish or yellowfin tuna from the ocean to the tranquil sounds of the rolling waves. 5 fishy bonus symbols on an active payline will trigger the bonus feature and give you a chance to win big. As they say, you should have seen the one that got away……..

Crack the ice with Lucky Angler (Netent) and test your fishing skills in freezing conditions and see what you can hook from the deep murky waters below. Quirky looking fish, lures, old boots, sticky wilds, scatters, free spins and a massive jackpot will keep any talented fisherman entertained brave enough to endure these arctic conditions.

Horse racing
Horse racing is not called the sport of kings without good reason, the original patrons were members of royalty as they were the only people wealthy enough to be able to afford the breeding racing of thoroughbreds. It has now become a multi-billion sport that only the elite can truly afford.

In keeping with this tradition, Netent developed champion of the track video slot with 5 reels and 30 paylines. Designed to look like a board game, all the symbols give you that feeling you are having a good day out at the races. Jockeys wearing their owner’s bright colours, horses in blinkers, binoculars, horseshoes, and the coveted trophy. The game comes with 3 exciting bonus rounds so there is plenty to keep you entertained as you try to win the big race. They are under starter's orders and they are off!

If you are a lover of tennis then you will know all about the 4 grand slams that take place each year. From the green grass of Wimbledon to the red clay of Roland Garros, Playtech brings you Tennis Stars slot machine. Simple in design and complemented with music and sound effects it plays like an arcade game. The symbols are tennis players, Adidas trainers, fluffy green balls, rackets and of course the prized trophy. With 3 bonus rounds, this is one slot that serves up big wins.

Golf is thought to have been invented as far back as the middle ages but the modern game we know and love came about at Royal Saint Andrews, Scotland in the 1850’s. Playtech developed Golden Tour slot machine recreating the joys and frustrations that come when swinging and putting in the modern era. This is one for golf lovers to try to get a hole in one!

So that’s it for our guide to sport themed slot machines that may not fine-tune your game but are a great way to while away the time and potentially land you some big wins before venturing out and getting stuck into the real deal.
