Although it doesn’t get the kind of media attention that other popular sports like football and tennis get, cricket continues to be one of the most popular sports in United Kingdom and some other countries.

This popularity has also encouraged many reputed gaming developers to come up with cricket-themed online casino games, not just betting options, to enhance the reach of casino gaming platforms.

In fact, you can join the fun of the biggest cricket tournament of the year by playing Cricket Star Slot, a highly-popular cricket-themed online slot game. Let’s tell you more about it.

The Developer

Cricket Star slot is a slot game developed by Microgaming, a well-known name in the casino gaming circles that has created some of the best and biggest online casino successes. The game features some very interesting aspects as well as a decent RTP.

About the gameplay

Cricket Star slot features rolling reels which are incorporated in all top-rated online slot games.

In fact, this feature was also effectively utilised in the highly popular chain reactor series; anyone who has played games in that series would know what he/she can expect.

This particular feature of the online slot game forces every winning symbol to disappear all of a sudden, with the next symbols on the reels falling into place and creating the possibility of further wins.

Even though this feature remains active throughout the Cricket Star slot game, it works best in the bonus rounds.

Visuals

Talking about the visuals of the game, you may be slightly disappointed as none of the recognised teams or players feature in the game.

Although developers have included some reputed names, they’ve kept the list to bare minimum, ensuring they don’t run into any licensing issues. Majority of the images are generic, but the seasoned cricket fans can easily decipher the meaning or people behind those symbols.

About its bonuses

Any time you land three or more scatter symbols on the reels, you unlock the primary feature of this game which leads you into a round where you can avail anywhere from 15 to 25 free spins.

As mentioned earlier, the Rolling Reels aspect of the game takes things a notch higher in this particular round; so every time it gets activated on the winning pay line, you earn a multiplier.

In the first instance of its activation, all your wins get doubled. The second time, your wins get tripled and so on, going up to 10 times multiplication. However, please note, this is only applicable for one spin. The multiplier gets reset as soon as you stop landing wins.

There’s an interesting additional feature in the Cricket Star slot game wherein the reels go wild. It gets triggered randomly at any point and normally occurs after the appearance of a small animation of a pair of stumps.

In most cases, it will not lead to any wins, however, in the event that it occurs after a successful spin, with reels lined-up in favourable positions, you stand to win more from it compared to the main feature.
