Will Microgaming’s latest release in the sporting ‘star’ series of slots bowl you over, or will it knock you for six? As you may have guessed, the subject of this new slot is the venerable sport of Cricket and fans of the sport as well as of slot gaming in general, will be eager to find out whether this game bats above its average, or whether it is likely to be bowled for a duck
Now that we’ve learned the basics of the Cricket Star slot, it is now time to take a closer look at how it performs and the first thing to note is that Cricket Star looks and sounds great. The setting is the batting crease on the pitch at a packed stadium and the reels are all adorned with lots of cricketing themed symbols of both high and low value.
In addition to that, the Wild symbol is stacked on reels three, four and five, which can lead to some very sizeable wins in the base game and in addition, the Wild Wickets bonus can trigger on any spin to give you a chance at landing a decent sized win.
The most exciting feature however is the Free Spins round, which is available when you land three or more scatters across the reels, triggering 15 (3 scatters), 20 (4 scatters) or 25 (5 scatterrs) free spins. During Free Spins, you can trigger a multiplier using the Rolling Reels feature, when you land successive Rolling Reels wins following a successful spin.
That multiplier trial can increase a win from 2x up to 10x the stated amount and can result in some massive wins.
With a 105,000 coin jackpot available to be won, Cricket Star slot is a sure fire smash hit.
