As the Rugby World Cup in England approaches the semi-finals and final, there’s no better way to get behind the All Blacks than with the new Rugby Star online pokie from Microgaming. With a starting line up of symbols featuring players from all the major nations, the Web-Ellis trophy, international rugby stadiums and a range of pieces of rugby kit, this should be an All Blacks fan’s game of choice right through the RWC and beyond.
This cutting edge, 243 ways-to-win online pokie has a ‘pack’ of innovative special features and a large number of coin sizes so that the available bets range between $0.50 – $250 per spin. Rugby Star also features Microgaming’s latest innovations for enhanced game play and more ways to win.
Rather than a rolling maul, Rugby Star includes the exclusive Microgaming Rolling Reels feature, where after a winning spin, the winning symbols ‘explode’ and others roll down to take their place – if another winning combination results, this produces another payout and so multiple wins are possible from a single spin.
The Rugby Star wild symbol is stacked on reels 3, 4 and 5 and so there are more than 40x wild symbols in play, boosting your chances of a win on every spin as the wild substitutes for all other symbols (except the scatter).
The Wild Pass feature is randomly triggered and can turn any two of reels 2, 3 or 4 wild, which automatically guarantees a winning spin.
If 3x, 4x or 5x scatter symbols appear anywhere on the reels, the free spin feature is automatically triggered, with 15x, 20x or 25x free spins on offer. During this bonus round, the Rolling Reels are also in play so consecutive wins on the same spin are possible, with all wins during the bonus round multiplied by up to 10x. This means there is a potential jackpot of up to $600,000 on offer when you’re betting the max.
During RWC 2015, you can enjoy Rugby Star at all of our recommended New Zealand online casinos, including Royal Vegas, Casino Mate, All Slots, Platinum Play and Jackpot City.
