If you are a big fan of cricket, but was not fortunate enough to pursue a career in the popular sport, then rest assured there is still a way to relive the experiences of a true cricket star. Spin the reels of the Microgaming title and start scoring those runs to feel appreciation of the crowd. Bear in mind that the best cricketers will be receiving special prizes when the match ends, so give it your best and see how things pan out.
Launched in February 2015 on both desktop and mobile ahead of the latest edition of the ICC Cricket World Cup, Cricket Star is a five reel, 243 way video slot that features similar layout and bonus rounds as the Football Star slot. Exploding symbols are in place to award even more base play wins, whilst Stacked Wilds, Free Spins, Wild Wickets Feature and Rolling Reels only add to the excitement.
Play Cricket Star
Cricket Star symbols depict cricketers in various stages of the match, meaning you will see bowlers, batsmen, wicketkeepers as well as field players attempting to catch the ball. Other game icons show two players making a run, three cricketers celebrating, an umpire and happy fans. Meanwhile, Criket Star Logo, Cricket Ball and Wicket Put Down act as the three special symbols that unlock the game's extra features.
How to play
Select coin size from $0.01, $0.02, $0.05 and $0.10, and wager between 1 and 10 coins per single payline or up to 500 in total per spin.
You will receive a payout if three or more matching icons are found anywhere on adjacent reels starting from the left.
Each time a winning combination occurs, all the symbols forming it will disappear, allowing other icons to fall in their place and potentially award additional wins.
Strategy & Tips
Cricket Star Wilds appear stacked on all reels, meaning you can see more than 40 Wild icons on the reels at any moment in time.
Wild Wickets Feature will see reels 2, 3 or 4 randomly turn Wild, awarding guaranteed wins. Wild symbols can substitute for all non-Scatter icons.
Obtain three or more Scatter symbols in any position to trigger the Free Spins round. A total of 15, 20 or 25 free games will be played with Rolling Reels and multipliers up to x10.
Microgaming opted to release desktop and mobile versions simultaneously and that proved to be a very good decision, with the mobile slot also featuring eye-catching graphics and rewarding game play, while also available on the move.
The HTML5 variant of Cricket Star has been developed for seamless gaming experience on tablet and smartphone, with free spins, multipliers, exploding symbols, stacked wilds and rolling reels providing mobile gamers with plenty of opportunities to drive up their earnings.
