Cricket Star is a game that appears to be themed around an extremely popular sport, called cricket. Cricket Star is one of the slots released by Microgaming, and the design style which was used in its case is quite similar to what you will find in other games of theirs, all with lots of details and quite fun to play. The slot you see here will give you 243 ways to win, and the prizes could go even up to $125,000.
Betting & Jackpots
The action in Cricket Star requires that you work with multiples of 50 coins, which is considered the minimum necessary to cover 243 ways to win. That’s why you need between 50 and 500 coins in this game, for each wager, if you select 1 to 10 coins per line. The coin value goes from $0.01 to $0.10, and you can expect to wager up to $50 on each spin.
The rewards of the game will go up to 250x the bet value, meaning up to $12,500 normally. The multipliers from the free spins go up to 10x, so there is potential for a lot more, maybe even up to $125,000.
The game will include Rolling Reels, so whenever you get a winning combination, expect its symbols to drop away, and for new symbols to come take their place. Multiple wins can be obtained this way, the incoming symbols being capable of paying you again, without requiring another spin.
Scatter symbols, using the image of a cricket ball, will be present anywhere on the five reels of this slot, and they will be capable of rewarding you with payouts which will vary between 5x and 250x the bet value. The same 3 to 5 scatters will also trigger 15 to 25 free spins, during which the Rolling Reels feature will have increasing multipliers, which will go up to 10x.
Wild symbols can be used in Cricket Star, and it seems that quite a few of them are used on the reels. They can even come in stacked, but this happens only on the reels 3, 4 and 5. A wild will not substitute for a scattered Ball, but it seems to work in any other situation where it can be part of a combo.
A randomly triggered feature might show up from time to time, one that is called Wild Wickets. It will turn one of the middle reels into a wild, and it will have a guaranteed win for you. Rolling Reels are not active during Wild Wickets.
The theme is a very unusual one, not because it doesn’t have any fans, on the contrary, but because most developers seem to have ignored this large market of cricket lovers. Microgaming didn’t though, and the game which results here looks and plays great. The symbols are all themed around various cricket players and equipment that might be used on the field.
It’s a great slot machine for someone that loves cricket, and since there isn’t much competition for it, I suggest you try it out if you’re one of the players that think that it’s interesting.
