Cricket Star Slots

Cricket-StarCricket Star is a cricket themed slot machine, an impressive title with awesome graphics, which are not that often available in slot machines themed around other sports that are more popular in the West. That’s not to say that cricket isn’t popular though, it’s actually the most followed sport in countries like India, which automatically means that it has an impressive fan base. Created by Microgaming, it has great graphics, but there are also impressive features that were added to it.

243 paylines/ways to win are found on the slot’s 5 reels, along with rare features like Rolling Reels or Wild Wickets, with wild symbols, free spins and scatter symbols. A $12,500 top jackpot makes it one of average paying titles from Microgaming.

Features of Cricket Star

The design is great, but the features will often make or break a game, and I’m happy to report that the experience offered is great in this case. You will discover wild symbols inside, some of them stacked, a Wild Wickets feature, a scatter symbol, free spins, Rolling Reels and multipliers.

First of all, the slot uses ways to win, so you get 243 chances to form a combo each round. The symbols no longer have to be on fixed positions, instead being enough for them to be on neighboring reels.

The game’s Rolling Reels feature is found in a number of other modern slot machines, though every developer seems to call it a different name. It gives you a chance to get more money during the rounds when you have winning combinations. The symbols that are part of those combos will roll away, and new symbols will replace them. With the new symbols, there is a chance that a new combo will be formed, and if that happens they also roll off the screen. This keeps happening until no more winning combinations appear.

Wild symbols are part of any self-respecting game these days, and they are available in Cricket Star as well. They appear on the last three reels in stacked mode, so you can get up to three of them at the same time. They don’t give you payouts directly, but they can substitute for any other regular symbol, the scatter symbol being the only exception.

Wild Wickets

This randomly activated feature will give you one wild reel, turning the 2nd, 3rd or 4th one. You also get a guaranteed win out of it, but the Rolling Reels will not work in this case.


Free Games Feature

The slot’s only scatter symbol will do two things for you, both of them when you have 3+ symbols. Get all five of them on the reels, even in random positions, and you get paid 250x the bet and you have 25 free games on top of that. With four symbols you get 50x the bet, plus 20 spins. The minimum required is three scatter symbols, which pay 5x the bet and award 15 free spins.


An added bonus is the way the Rolling Reels work during the free spins. With each consecutive win that appears as a result of the Rolling Reels, the multiplier goes up by 1x, the maximum offered being 10x.

Betting options and jackpots

Even though the game mentions that it uses 243 ways to win, it doesn’t require the player to place a bet on each one, instead using the equivalent of 50 win lines for this game. Each of these lines gets a maximum of 10 coins, where denominations are only between $0.01 and $0.10. A $1 line bet results, with the maximum per spin being $50.

The slot’s regular payouts go up to $12,500, the amount offered by the scatter symbol. In theory, you could get up to $125,000 from it, with the help of the multiplier offered by the Rolling Reels feature during free spins.

Design and symbols

One of the impressive things about this game, besides the collection of features, is the design and the way they worked on every symbol. Each one has more than enough detail to make it look good, and the background picture with the cricket stadium is also gorgeous. Only Cricket related images were used, no filler content in this case.


Symbols: Cricket Star Logo (wild), Cricket Ball (scatter, 250x the bet), Hitter (500x), Thrower (250x), Catcher (200x), Blue Hitter (175x), Red Player (150x), Green Players (125x), Players Celebrating (120x), Coach (100x) and Fans (80x).

Is It Worth Playing?

It’s one of the better games from Microgaming, but it helps that it is recently launched and uses lots of features that their older titles don’t have. From the ways to win, to the gorgeous theme or the new features, there are a lot of reasons to like this slot.

This Cricket Star slot is offered by all online casinos with Microgaming software, playable either in practice or in real money mode.
