Available on Spin Palace, the Cricket Star pokie is one of the newer additions to the Microgaming sporting line-up, giving fans of this global game something to get excited about.
Set against a backdrop of a cricket green, with player and team symbols that cricket fans will recognise, and some generic ones thrown in for good measure, Cricket Star’s graphics are decent, but not spectacular. The game action buttons, the border and other visual aspects of Cricket Star have been recycled from the other Microgaming sporting pokies, but they still work well here.
You can bet for as little as $0.01 per line on Cricket Star, and this goes all of the way up to $0.50, a rather high maximum bet and one that is sure to attract higher stake players.
There are 243 paylines in total, which is where the “243 ways to win” comes from, and whilst this is not a progressive pokie, there is still an in-built jackpot of just over half a million coins.
There is a Rolling Reel feature on Cricket Star, which can also be found on the other games in this series.
The base game also has a stacked wild feature, promising as many as 40 wild symbols, and the bonus round is a free spins round that makes good use of this feature. There are 25 free spins on offer, all of which come with a multiplier, with the Rolling Reels feature remaining active throughout.
Another exciting edition to a great series that has a little something for all sport fans. Cricket Star doesn’t have much in the way of advanced bonus rounds, but with a generous RTP, a Rolling Reel feature and stacked wilds all coming into their own during the free spins round, this can be a very rewarding pokie.
