Launched to coincide with the rugby world cup in September of 2015, Rugby Star is a sporty themed slot from Microgaming. The game is similar in style to the company’s previous football and cricket themed offerings, confirming Microgaming’s reputation at the top of the leader board where sports slots are concerned. Rugby fans will, of course, be enamoured with this game but you don’t necessarily have to be a sports fanatic to enjoy the big cash wins and bonus rounds on offer.
We all know that rugby is a rough and ready game which is always sure to get pulses racing whether you’re playing or simply watching from the comfort of your own home. This video slot has been designed to capture the excitement and energy of the sport. Big-built rugby players wrestle, scrum and run across the reels as you play the game and the background noise of sports fans cheering really adds to the overall theme.
How to play
Rugby Star is a five reel slot which offers 243 ways to win rather than the usual choice of active pay lines. The 243 ways to win format, pioneered by Microgaming, is proving to be an increasingly popular layout in the world of online slots. This is due to the fact that your chances of finding a winning combo are greatly increased in this style of game. With no pay lines to pick from, all you have to do is set your coin denominations and spin the reels. Spins are available from between 50p and £50 per spin.
Bonuses and extras
The free spins game is triggered by three or more rugby ball scatters appearing on the reels at once. The more balls you land, the more spins you will receive- ranging from 15 to 25.
