You find a lot of sports-themed slots but not too many of them deal with the game of cricket, a game that is hugely popular in just a handful of countries worldwide. Cricket Star is Microgaming's cricket-themed slot and showcases the game. The backdrop to the game is a cricket stadium and the symbols are all from the world of cricket. This is a game with 5 reels that gives you 243 ways to score wins. The coin size is 0.01, 0.02, 0.05, and 0.10 and you can bet a maximum of 10 coins. The minimum and maximum bets are 50p and £50 respectively.
The symbols in Cricket Stars include batsmen and bowlers from the national teams of different countries including the West Indies, Australia, india, England, New Zealand, and South Africa, the umpire, and the crowds. The Cricket Star logo is the wild symbol while the white cricket ball is the scatter symbol. The wild symbol replaces all other symbols except the scatter symbol. The wild symbol can appear stacked on reels 3, 4, and 5.
You can win up to a huge 105,000.00 when you play this game. The Rolling Reels feature is active during the base game: when you land a winning combination the symbols involved disappear and new symbols fall into their place, giving you a shot at more wins from the same spin.
The wild symbol stacks up on the reels 3, 4 and 5 to give you a total of up to 40 wilds across the reels, which is the potential for a big payout. Another exciting feature is the Wild Wickets feature, triggered randomly and causes reels 2, 3, or 4 to turn wild at random, guaranteeing you big wins. The Rolling Reels feature is not seen during the course of this feature.
Landing 3, 4, or 5 scatter symbols across the reels triggers the free spins bonus: 15 free spins for 3 scatters, 20 for 4 scatter, and 25 for 5 scatter. During the free spins bonus the Rolling Reels feature becomes active, awarding multiple consecutive wins with up to a 10x multiplier. The free spins cannot be re-triggered.
