Cricket Star is an online pokie from Microgaming that was released on the occasion of the 2015 Cricket World Cup. The event was hosted and won by Australia, and this pokie has remained a favourite at Australian online casinos since then. The symbols on the reels are cricketers sporting the colours of the different countries that participated in the World Cup. You can see them batting, bowling, fielding and keeping wickets. An umpire and spectators are thrown in for good measure. The win animations are so realistic that they take you right to a cricket stadium.
Symbols in winning combinations disappear and are replaced by others. If new winning combinations are formed again you receive the payouts and the process repeats. The Cricket Star logo is the wild symbol and it appears stacked on reels 3, 4 and 5. The cricket ball shattering into the stumps awards up to 25 free spins with the Rolling Reels feature. The multiplier increases with consecutive wins and can reach up to 10x. A new feature in Cricket Star online pokie is Wild Wickets. In this randomly triggered feature one of the reels 2, 3 or 4 will turn wild and guarantee you a payout.
Cricket Star features the 243 ways to win paylines structure. Like symbols on adjacent reels, starting from the left most reel, result in payouts. The line bet can be varied from AU$0.01 to AU$5.00. The total bet is 50 times the line bet. The top line payout is 500 coins which is par for a 243 ways online pokie. The top scatter payout for five scatter symbols is 250 coins. This is multiplied by the total bet and can reach big amounts for large stakes. You can win up to AU$525,000 in this online pokie. If you are a cricket fan, high roller or low roller, it is a must play game.
