As the 2013/14 season gets started it is an exciting time for fans of the NBA, and it makes it a great time for those who have yet to put down their NBA Championship outright bets, to decide which side they will be gambling on. The 2012 champions, Miami Heat, are the hot favorites to retain their crown – with odds of just 9/4 to triumph again. There is certainly little reason to think that the Heat will not present stiff opposition for the other teams in the league again this season, but could Charlotte Bobcats pose a threat this season?
Not according to the bookmakers, with odds at 250/1 to lift the NBA title they are the least likely to be crowned champions. In a tough division that includes Miami (9/4), Washington (125/1) and Atlanta (66/1), the odds of even winning the division look slim. The number of teams who look favorable to the bobcats make glory look unlikely this year. Fans instead may look for glory in other places such as playing basketball themed games at an online casino. One popular game in particular is the slots game ‘Slam Dunk’.
This slot game featuring five reels and nine pay lines is one of the best ways you can get to combine basketball with betting. You will find players, cheerleaders, trainers and jerseys on the reels (number 23 jerseys, which are the wild symbols), and a backdrop of a basketball court. You will also find a variety of basketball-themed game bonuses, alongside standard slots features like a jackpot ($45,000), very cheap play and the superb chance of winning a cash payout. Furthermore with mobile casino apps you can put Slam Dunk on your phone and play from anywhere these days, so it’s a game that really lives up to its name.
