Sure Win Video GameIf you’re a lover of sports and you’re looking to find some different casino games to get your teeth into, you’ve certainly come to the right place. Fortunately, many of the leading iGaming software developers have spent a lot of time and effort to create some light-hearted sports-themed casino games designed to work you up into a sweat.

With the English Premier League back up and running, the horse racing season warming up, the AFL Finals in full swing, Anthony Joshua readying himself for another major heavyweight boxing title fight, and the next Ashes in Australia on the horizon, there is plenty of sporting action to whet the appetite. But if you just can’t get enough when you’ve switched that television off, you’ll be pleased to know that many of the leading online casinos are on hand to give you your sporting fix without having to leave your armchair ever again!

Let’s take a look at the best five sports-themed casino games currently available to players in Australia:

• Sure Win
Developed by the iGaming software pioneers at Microgaming, Sure Win is a great starting point for any horse racing enthusiast looking to enjoy some fun at their favourite online casino. From the moment you load up this video slots game, you get an instant indication that it is horse racing themed, with the five symbols featuring bookmakers, horses, jockeys, binoculars, and many other iconic horse racing paraphernalia. What’s great about Sure Win is that it’s well-suited to punters wishing to play at all levels of betting, from $0.25 per spin all the way up to $125 per spin. As you’d expect from a video slot from Microgaming, Sure Win is compatible with all mobile and tablet devices as well as desktops and laptops. Players can earn Free Spins when three, four or five ‘Knight of the Pencil’ symbols appear across your reels, with potential multipliers valued up to 100x your winnings – so you can potentially win just as much, if not more, playing Sure Win than you could spending a day at the racecourse!

• Football Star
If you’re a fan of the beautiful game then you’ll love the chance to write your own piece of footballing history just like Messrs Ronaldo and Messi with Football Star, designed by Microgaming and available across many of the leading casino sites with welcome bonuses of up to £1000. Although this game was released way back in 2014 just before the 2014 FIFA World Cup, it remains a firm favourite with footy fans. This five-reel video slot has a return-to-player average of at least 96%, ensuring you get a very reasonable bang for your buck and a good chance of striking it lucky from the penalty spot. Featuring all the symbols one would expect from watching a live Premier League or La Liga match, as well as the ‘Striking Wild’ bonus and a chance to get up to 25 free spins with a 10x multiplier, it has all the ingredients for our football-crazy readers.

• Centre Court
Taking its theme from the world-famous All England Lawn Tennis Championships at Wimbledon, Centre Court’s video slots game is a smash hit with all tennis enthusiasts. This five-reel slot features nine pay lines and serves up a raft of additional in-game features including free spins and a multiplier that can hit up to 5x your free spin winnings. The aim of the game on Centre Court is to get five trophy symbols in an active pay line to receive multiplication of bets placed on that line by 1000. This game looks and plays great on mobile devices as well as desktop and laptops; so much so that you can almost smell the strawberries and cream from London’s SW19!


• Cricket Star
Australia are in the process of preparing for this summer’s visit of England with a warm-up ODI series with India. Meanwhile, the English side are currently in action against the West Indies and looking to nail down a settled side to compete in the Ashes Down Under. If you can’t get enough bat on ball action then Cricket Star will certainly knock you for six. This five-reel, 243-line video slot operates on Microgaming’s Quickfire platform, offering a slick and intuitive gaming experience on any native device. Cricket fans around the world will enjoy playing Cricket Star. With its life-like crowd noises and graphics and a heap of special features that give you a chance to break even and even win big, it remains the leading cricket-themed casino game by some stretch.

• Ultimate Dream Team
Are you hooked on fantasy football? Do you like picking your own team of stars to perform? Push Gaming’s Ultimate Dream Team is an action-packed video slot game that lets you put together your own winning team and get big cash prizes in the process. Featuring caricatures of some of the world’s most celebrated football stars, including Cristiano Ronaldo and Ronaldinho (who could yet return to Barcelona this month!) it’s certainly a game for the football fanatic. With a five-reel, 25-payline slot, this is your perfect opportunity to score from the penalty spot and scoop a huge win!

If these don’t feed your love of sports, then we don’t know what will! Get involved with your favourite sporting heroes and be in with a chance of winning big money in the process – what’s not to like?
