Cricket Star Pokie NZ

Cricket Star is one of a long line of sports-based pokies created by Microgaming over the years. They’ve released Football Star, Rugby Star and Basketball Star among others, and so the spotlight finally turned to Cricket. This 5-reel video pokie very much follows the blueprint of their other sports pokies, but with Cricket Star there are some bespoke features.

Cricket Star Pokie Background

The pokie has a raucous atmosphere, and a constant crowd buzz, as if you were watching an IPL (Indian Premier League) game in India. Although you don’t see any simulated cricketing gameplay, the visual imagery, and features like Wild Wickets, will be familiar concepts to cricketing fans. The symbols feature selfie taking barmy army crowds, fielders diving, batters playing a cover drive or a sweep shot, the bowlers, the wicket keeper, and the umpire giving you out. Howzat sound?

Pokie Features

Cricket Star has an unbelievable 243 ways to pay which can lead to a huge jackpot of 105,000 credits. In the regular game there are two types of wild feature. The wild symbol, which is the game logo, substitutes for all other symbols except the scatter (more on that in a minute). There are more that 40 wild symbols present in every spin on the reels and they can become stacked on reels 3, 4, and 5. There is also the wild wickets feature where either reel 2,3 or 4 can turn wild totally randomly. During the main Cricket Star game you’ll also notice the classic Microgaming feature, Rolling Reels. These have the potential to award multiple re-spins. The scatter symbol is the white cricket ball from one day international (ODI) cricket.

Cricket Star Free Spins

If you get 3, 4 or 5 scatter symbols during the main game, this triggers the free spins round. These correspond as follows: 3 Scatters: 15 Free Spins 4 Scatters: 20 Free Spins 5 Scatters: 25 Free Spins During the free spins round, the rolling reels feature can return. Every time a re-spin occurs, this increases the multiplier. This can multiply your winnings between 2x and 10x as much. The scatter symbol in Cricket Star also pays out when you have 3 or more. When you get 5 scatters, not only do you receive 25 free spins, you also win cash upfront. If you’ve bet $50, then you’ll receive $12,500!
