The Cricket Star slot game was devised by the expert creators at Microgaming. There are plenty of Microgaming machines on the market and this one joined them in February 2015.
Cricket Star has appealing graphics and keeps the Microgaming trend of a simple to use and easy to navigate interface. The sounds are excellent too. Cricket Star can be played on all desktop, mobile and tablet devices.
Cricket lovers this is your dream slot game. Sports fans either love cricket or they hate it but clearly the people at Microgaming enjoy it so much that they have built a slot machine based on the game. Wickets and runs form the key to success in this game. Cricket Star has five reels and a massive 243 paylines in total.
There are a number of symbols that are used on the reels and they all have a cricket theme to them. You have cricketers from many different Test playing nations, an umpire, players celebrating wickets and groups of supporters among other things. The Cricket Star logo acts as the Wild for this game while the cricket ball is the Scatter icon.
We have three features in Cricket Star. The Wild Wickets feature is the first one. Three wickets will appear at random on top of the middle three reels and a ball gets bowled towards them. Whichever wicket the ball hits will turn the reel completely Wild and ensure you win!
Rolling Reels are used in the Cricket Star game. This is where winning combinations are exploded and replaced by other icons. This can lead to extra wins from the same spin and better payouts.
There is also a Free Spins feature to the Cricket Star slot game. Three, four or five of the cricket ball Scatter is needed to activate this. When they come along you receive 15 spins for three icons, 20 free spins for four balls and 25 free spins for five Scatters. The Rolling Reels game is active during this game and each time you get a win you will increase a multiplier to a 10x maximum.
The RTP rating for the Cricket Star slot game is a very respectable 97.00%, which is comfortably above the average and definitely in favour of the player.
You don’t get many cricket-themed slot games even though the popularity of the sport across the world is very strong, so credit should go to Microgaming for delivering one which cricket fans will absolutely love. Not only are the graphics good, with the iconic cricket stadium behind the reels, but the sounds are good and the gameplay is very much in tune with the sport. The different features blend in nicely to the game and those free spins can be quite lucrative if you get the Rolling Reels going at the same time. Whether you are a cricket fan or not there is much to like and enjoy about Cricket Star!
