Playing Rugby Star
Before a player warms up to tackle the monolithic players on offer in Rugby Star, they should adjust their game settings.
By clicking on "Bet," a player will set coins size range.
"Coins" is used to set the number of coins per line that a player wishes to bet.
"Spin" will set the reels in motion.
"Autoplay" option is used to turn the reels without interruption for a chosen number of times.
In the original game, the action begins right from the first blow of the whistle. There are more than forty wild icons on the reels to help you win big as well as stacked wilds on the third, fourth and fifth reels.
Players will benefit from the Rolling Reels round that plays out on every single win. When a player forms a winning combination, the contributing icons are replaced by new ones – allowing players to win time and time again from each spin.
There's a Wild Pass feature that is randomly activated – here up to two reels (either the second, third or fourth reel) will randomly turn wild guaranteeing players a win.
However, the main pull is the Free Spins round that is activated by getting three, or more Rugby Ball scatter icons anywhere on the reels. Three will give players fifteen free spins, four gives them twenty free spins, and five gives them twenty-five free spins.
As with the original game, players will benefit from Rolling Reels, giving them multiple consecutive wins. The difference is that the multiplier rises by x1 after each winning spin up to a massive x10!
Rugby Star is bound to appeal to rugby fans really, but if a player is a novice, then forget the theme, it's a decent video slot game. The original game can provide wins of up to 1,620 times a bet stake whilst the Free Spins round can give gains of up to 2,400 times a players bet.
