Cricket Star is one of the few slot machines which get their inspiration from the sport of cricket, which is especially popular in India. Due to the sheer size of the country, the sport has hundreds of millions of fans from it alone, so it is one of the most popular in the world, even though football gets more eyes. The game was created by Microgaming, a developer with experience at this sort of thing, and the graphics look particularly good in its case. The slot also has rolling reels, multipliers, wilds and scatter with free spins. You will win at most $125,000 from it, after you wager on its 243 ways to win.
Betting and Prizes
243 ways to win are employed to form combinations on, and the developer will require that you select at least 50 coins to use on them each spin. You can increase the wager to 10 coins per line, or 500 coins total, while you modify the bet in the range of $0.01 to $0.10. You can spend $1 for each line, so up to $50 total.
The big prize mentioned here comes from the scatter symbol, which will give back 250 times the wager value. You can expect even more during the free spins, where up to 10x multipliers are possible. You could go up to $12,500 in the base game, or $125,000 during free spins.
Cricket Star Slot Features
Rolling Reels are used in a lot of games these days, though they’re not always called this way. The symbols which are part of winning combinations will leave the reels, so that new ones can come in and form other combinations. This all happens during the same spin.
Over 40 wilds are placed on the reels of Cricket Star. These wilds are stacked on the reels 3, 4 and 5, and they act as substitutes for symbols which are trying to form regular combinations (so it doesn’t work with scatters).
Sometimes, you might get a Wild Wickets feature to trigger at random, one that turns one of the three middle columns into a wild reel and gives you a guaranteed prize.
The scatter, the only other symbol in use to have a special ability, will act as a symbol which you can use from random positions in order to trigger a feature with free spins and up to 250x the bet in prizes. The free spins get you 15, 20 or 25 rounds, based on the number of triggering scatters. Multiple rounds triggered by the rolling reels will bring higher multipliers, going up to 10x.
Theme & Design
Cricket Star is one of those slots where the design is not an issue, the quality being excellent and the symbols being all properly themed. Microgaming doesn’t always offer this kind of experience, but the slots that do have this level of quality tend to get plenty of features as well, and they’re usually a lot of fun.
Cricket Star has a pretty well established audience, made up of people that enjoy cricket. There should be plenty of fans for this slot, since the sport itself is so popular.
