Online slots developer, Microgaming, have released a number of sport-themed slot games over the years, and now they have added Cricket Star Slot to their growing list of games.
Cricket Star Slot joins other sports in getting the star treatment, with Microgaming already offering Basketball Star, Football Star and Rugby Star to name just three.
This is a five-reels and three-rows game with the reels set on a cricket stadium background from the view of a batsman standing at the batting crease, and Microgaming have added a boisterous crowd noise that really adds to the overall atmosphere of the game.
The symbols are represented by various batsmen and bowler actions, as well as fielders and wicketkeepers, umpires and cricket fan groups.
The game offers 243 different ways to win, and the jackpot is 105,000 coins; it offers a Return to Player ratio of 96% and is a medium variance slot game. For those of you who like to stick to a low stake, the minimum bet here is 50p, whilst the maximum tops out at $50 per spin.
Microgaming have included the same features and bonuses that you would expect to find in their other offerings such as Football Star Slots, with features such as Rolling Reels that can give you a multitude of free spins. Rolling Reels works by replacing symbols on a winning line with new ones, and this keeps going until there are no more winning combinations.
On the base game, the lowest value symbol is the diving fielder who returns 15, 60 or 150 coins depending on whether you land 3, 4 or 5 on a payline. The highest value symbol on the base game is the batsman hitting a cover drive symbol that offers 30, 125 or 500 coins for 3, 4 or 5 on a payline.
The wild symbol is the game’s logo and appears on reels 2, 3 and 4 only but they can be stacked for even more chances to win, and the Wild Wickets feature enables reels 2, 3 or 4 to become randomly wild for guaranteed wins.
A white cricket ball from the one-day version of the sport is the scatter symbol and landing 3, 4 or 5 of these will give you either 15, 20 or 25 free spins.
There is extra good news during the free spins round as the Rolling Reels feature is active, and for every re-spin triggered the multiplier will increase, and this can boost your winnings by 2 to 10 times your unit stake.
In addition to this, the scatter symbol also pays out as well as offering free spins, so if you have bet the maximum stake of $50 and you land five scatters, not only will you receive 25 free spins, but you will also win $12,500.
If you are a sports fan, you will love playing this game, and if cricket is your game then you will enjoy it even more. The chance to win big on the base game with five scatters is a definite bonus, whilst the free spins you receive is also a generous amount. There is plenty here to entice novice and experienced gamblers alike.
