Cricket Star Slot Review
Microgaming have been producing some great video slots over the last decade and you can definitely add ‘Cricket Star’ to that list. It definitely knocks its rivals for six.
‘Cricket Star’ was produced to tie in with the 2015 ICC World Cup, yes the one that England failed to even get out of the group in. Hopefully you’ll be a lot more successful playing this video slots game in which there are definitely more chances of winning than falling asleep during a T20 game.
Its a five-reel slot with 243 ways to win with wins being paid left to right. The coin range is £0,01 and £0.10. You can decide just how much you want to stake and there’s a maximum of ten coins per line. It’s not necessary to set how many lines you want to play because they’re all active on each spin. So whatever the level of your coin per line is multiplied by 50 to set your stake per spin.
All the control buttons are neatly placed down at the bottom of the screen. This includes an autoplay feature that can set up to 500 spins. In the bottom left hand corner is the ‘View Pays’ button. it’s a good idea to have a quick look through this as it explains just how to win at the game. Don’t worry though because ‘Cricket Star’ is nowhere near as complex as the lbw rule or Duckworth/Lewis method that only Duckworth and Lewis understand. A few free plays will also help you get used to playing ‘Cricket Star.’
A lot of people describe cricket as being really boring but they’re totally wrong. Mind you there’s little chance of you playing this game for five days and still end up drawing. The theme of the game is played to perfection here with the symbols all representing one-day cricket action. which ensures some colourful images. These include batsmen whacking the ball all round the ground, a wicket-keeper, players celebrating a vital wicket, a fielder making a great catch, an umpire and fans cheering another great moment for their team. The scatter symbol in this game is a white cricket ball and the wild symbol is the ‘Cricket Star’ logo.
You have a great chance of getting some wins via the Cricket Star Wild Symbol. That’s because there’s more than 40 of them on the reels. They substitute for all other game symbols apart from the scatter symbol.
The Rolling reels feature gives you plenty of chances of getting some great wins. When you get a win during normal play those winning symbols go up in flames and are replaced by new ones and of course that can produce even more winning combinations.
If you can get at least three of the scatter symbols landing anywhere on the reels then that gets you some free spins. 15 for three, 20 for four and 25 for five. With the Rolling Reels feature in play this can see your account balance rise faster than the scoreboard when David Warner is at the crease. The more wins you get, the higher the multiplier will go with a maximum of 10x.
You never know when the Wild Wickets Feature will come into play, a bit like waiting for an England side to win a one-day series. A wicket rises and covers the three central reels, a ball then gets bowled and one of the stumps goes flying causing that reel to turn completely wild.
This is an entertaining game with some good bonus features and lots of chances to win. To be honest it’s virtually the same as ‘Football Star’ with a cricket theme instead and some variation between the two games would be welcome. If you like cricket then you’ll love playing this and even if you’re not, you’ll appreciate the wins you can earn.
