Rugby Star is a new Microgaming online slot that features Rolling Reels, Free Spins and the Wild Pass feature. If the name of the new slot didn’t give it away, it is a new slot game that is based on the sport of Rugby .
Symbols include players from countries such as Argentina, Wales, Australia and South Africa. Other symbols include a Stadium, a Helmet, Boots and a Silver Trophy. The Rugby Star logo is the wild and the rugby ball is the scatter symbol. The wild symbol will appear stacked on reels three, four and five and will substitute for all other symbols except for the scatter Rugby Ball symbol.
If you don’t know what the “Rolling Reels” feature is (which is found in some of Microgaming’s newer slots), it is a feature in which symbols will disappear after they pay out on a winning payline and are replaced with other symbols. The other symbols actually drop into position and continues on until there is no win after the last set of symbols drops.
The Free Spins bonus round will trigger when the Rugby Ball scatter symbols land in the reels. You must land three, four or five of them for the bonus round to trigger. Three Rugby Ball scatter symbols will give you 15 free spins, Four Rugby Ball scatter symbols will give you 20 free spins and five Rugby Ball scatter symbols will give you 25 free spins. The “Rolling Reels” feature is activated during the free spins bonus round and during the “rolling Reels” drops, each win will increase by a multiplier. The multipliers include two times, three times, four times, five times and ten times. The free spins cannot be re-triggered though.
The Wild Pass feature is a feature that will occur randomly in a normal game. Any reels on within reels two, three and four can turn fully wild for a re-spin and a win. Up to two reels can turn completely wild.
For those of you who follows the sport of Rugby, you will find that this is a nice addition to the Microgaming online video slot assortment. You can play Rugby Star at Microgaming casinos such as 7 Sultans and Red Flush.
