Rugby Star Review
Rugby Star is a 5 reels, 243 ways to win video slots game from Microgaming. Hailed as the first decent rugby slots game, the makers have gone all out to make sure it doesn’t disappoint.
Whether you’re looking for a free slots game or something to play for real, this sports-themed offering is ideal.
Expect great graphics and the perfect interface, via the online and mobile and tablet options.
The Look and Feel
The game delivers an illustrated rugby scenario to the small screen. There’s definitely something very realistic about the imagery, but the developers haven’t bogged the game down with too much photo-realism or unnecessary music.
Expect to see a range of rugby symbols, like the ball, helmet and stadium as well as a mixture of players and teams and to hear the crowd go wild when you score a point or two.
Try Out These Rugby Star Features
Just like most other slots games, players need to make combinations of the 3, 4 and 5 of a kind variety. The rugby players make up the bigger themed wins and there’s a nice spread of team colours, so that everyone can get involved, no matter where you come from, or who you support.
But aside from that, this game’s primary draw is the stacked wilds and avalanche reels. Simply put, sometimes you’ll hit spin and see that wild after wild is streaming down one reel. If it stops mid-stream, you could end up with an entire stack of wilds, and we don’t need to explain what that means in terms of making tons of combinations.
The next huge benefit is the avalanche or exploding reels function. Make a combination anywhere on the reels and once that prize amount has been added to your balance, the reels will explode to allow new symbols to fall into place. Essentially, this means that every win also earns you a free spin.
What’s more, this will retrigger again and again until you stop winning.
Rugby Star also includes the regular Wilds, but these can turn into the ‘wild pass’ feature at random, which also turns the reel completely wild. These combos explode too, but here the wilds seem less likely to be replaced by more wilds.
High Value Free Spins
There’s also the scatter to look out for. Get the right number of scatters and you’ll trigger the free spins feature. In Rugby Star, this feature seems to trigger less often than in similar games. However, the free spins come with a multiplier of up to 10x, meaning the value of the wins makes up for their infrequency.
Typically, a free spins win in Rugby Stars gives you over 50 times your bet back. But just like a rugby try, if you can convert, players will see their score skyrocket.
A World Cup Game
No matter what brand of rugby you follow, this game is world class. With sharp graphics, no annoying card game dropped in the middle and tons of great features, it’s worth getting excited about.
So come on in, your seats are waiting for you.
