About Rugby Star
The sound on Rugby Star has been fine tuned to give you the feeling you could be in an old time beachfront arcade. You can hear the hustle and bustle of other machines and action in the background, but this doesn’t detract from the big money audio splashes that dominate the reel game. There’s plenty of powerful effects that complement the combinations and add to the whole excitement pumped out by this machine.
Graphically, Microgaming have managed to one again ride on the money with Rugby Star. Whilst the visuals all have that precise quality that details some of the big icons of the sport including stadiums, boots, trophies and of course, players, there isn’t the reliance on overly realistic styles that can sometimes spoil a look. The whole ensemble is set rather nicely on a rugby pitch, giving you that all-important feeling like your right in with all the action.
This plays out across a standard casino grid, giving you five reels of red hot action where you can spike combinations on a 243 ways to win system. Here there’s a ton of winning potential in the final three reels where you’ll find a bunch of score enhancing stacked wilds and you can land in three scatters to take you into the bonus round. Rugby Star also features a cascading Rolling Reels system where winning combinations pay-out and disappear from the reels, giving you extra chances to even more winners off a single spin.
In addition to all the craziness that’s already on the reels of Rugby Star there’s more to come with the special Wild Pass feature. This cool reel bonus turns between one and three of the middle reels wild for the duration of one single spin, guaranteeing you at least one pay-out. Whilst the Rolling Reels is disabled for this spin, there’s still plenty of big money to be had here.
What about the bonus round? If you stop in three scatters you’ll be taken to a second set of reels where you can make even bigger money using the cascading system, as every successive hit on the Rolling Reels will ramp up a multiplier to a maximum of 10x. With loads stacked wilds still in play and the chance to earn re-triggers this is a definite drop goal of a feature round.
