This autumn sees one of the biggest sporting events in the world take place as the Rugby World Cup kicks off in England. Twenty of the world’s biggest teams will compete to take home the trophy and you can celebrate the start of the tournament thanks to Microgaming’s latest slot Rugby Star.
As the name of the slot suggests, the reels are packed with a myriad of Rugby symbols featuring some of the biggest teams in the game as well as some of the iconic boots, head guards and trophies that are icons of the game.
The slot is a 5×3 reel slot that boasts 243 paylines on every spin. You can get the reels spinning for as little as 0.50 per spin, though you can scale up the amount you want to wager considerably. This makes this an ideal slot for both smaller stakes players and those who prefer larger bets.
What is certainly true about the Rugby Star slot is that it is packed with features. The base game boasts the usual scatter symbol and Wilds, but the Wilds are also Stacked Wilds on reels 3, 4 and 5 and the stack size of the Wild can vary in size with a stack of 40 Wilds possible.
Another feature which can be triggered at any time in the base game is the Wild Pass feature, which sees up to two of reels 2, 3 or 4 turn Wild to create more winning paylines. All wins in the base game (and free spins) triggers Rolling Reels which sees winning paylines disappear and the symbols drop down to create new winning paylines from the same spin.
Land 3, 4 or 5 Scatters and you trigger 15, 20 or 25 free spins respectively and this feature also boasts a Multiplier Trail giving you the chance to maximise your wins thanks to a potential 10x multiplier.
