Microgaming celebrates NRL World Cup with Rugby Star pokies debut

In anticipation of the 2015 Rugby World Cup on the 18th of September, Microgaming is releasing their latest game, the all-new Rugby Star online pokies, on 9th September in download, Quickfire (Flash) and mobile formats.

Rugby Star is a 5 x 3 reel with 243 ways to win. It features our beloved sport prominently in its gameplay and visuals and captures its essence to take players into the match, with tons of scatters, stacked wilds and a wild pass features for extra ways to win big. High symbols are represented by player icons, while low symbols are trophies, scrumcaps and stadiums.

Free spins: Taking cues from Football Star, another slot from Microgaming, free spins in Rugby Star come in increments of 15, 20, or 25 free spins by landing three or more scatter symbols on the reels. A multiplier feature bolsters your potential winnings, with consecutive wins during the free spins activating multipliers of 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x, and 10x. Scoring those free spins is augmented by the cheering crowd and up-beat soundtrack simulating a stadium crowd.

Rolling Reels: Getting a lucky win in the base game or free spins feature will trigger a special feature called Rolling Reels, where winning symbols award their payout and the reels explode to roll new symbols for more consecutive wins.

Wild Pass: Triggering this feature in the base game or free spins mode is random and rewards handsomely for those lucky enough to nab it. The Wild Pass turns up to two reels wild on reel two, three or four, rather than just the lone middle reel.
