This September, the 2015 Rugby World Cup kicks off on the 18th with England taking on Fiji, but you may well be enjoying some fantastic rugby-themed action of your own by then with the forthcoming release of the fantastic new Microgaming slot Rugby Star.
With a host of rugby themed symbols on the reels, including the fabulous World Cup trophy itself, all brightly coloured to bring the slot to life, this exciting 5×3 reel slot boasts 243 paylines on every spin.
One of the best features of the game is that you can size your bet according to your bankroll easily with spins starting at just 0.50, though slot fans who want to bet considerably more on each spin can do so easily by increasing the size of their bet.
As with any new slot, the features are what will make or break the game and Rugby Star is certainly packed full of features. The Wild Pass feature can be triggered randomly at any point in the base game and when it does, one or two reels (out of reels 2,3 and 4) will turn completely wild for the next spin allowing the players a greater chance of a winning payline.
The in game Wilds are also helping players by being stacked on the reels. However, in some cases Wilds are stacked up to 40 symbols high, meaning that you have a great chance of turning all three of the visible symbols on that reel Wild.
In the base game and during free spins, any win sets off the Rolling Reels feature, which triggers the winning symbols to explode and those above it drop down which can, in turn, create additional winning payline on the same spin in a domino effect.
The bigger money is available in free spins and you enter this section by landing 3 or more scatters across the reels. 15, 20 or 25 free spins are awarded depending on how many scatters you land and during free spins, you can increase your multiplier up to a massive 10x your winning amount.
With a fantastic jackpot of 120,000 coins and a perfect release date, Rugby Star Slot will be sure to be a hit when it is released this September.
