Rugby is without a doubt an underrated sport worldwide. It is similar to American football, with which it shares a common ancestor played in the mid-19th century England, but its rules are slightly different. But the biggest difference in the two games is visible in the equipment worn by the players: while American football players wear a full body armor, rugby players hardly ever wear padded uniforms, and they prefer to play with a mouthgard only.
September was the month marked by Rugby in the United Kingdom, host of the 2015 Rugby World Cup. Teams from all over the world gathered there to decide which one of them will take the prize – and the title – home. The same event has prompted Microgaming, the developer providing Royal Vegas casino with its excellent games, to release a new title in its Sports Star Series, this time inspired by this manly sport. What you will find below is a Rugby Star Online Slots Review, of a game available for free or real play at the Royal Vegas Casino.
Rugby Star has five reels, three rows and 243 ways to win, offering Royal Vegas players the maximum number of possible winning combinations. As its name suggests, the game focuses on rugby, featuring symbols like various pieces of equipment, stadiums and players on its reels. There are two teams fighting for the supremacy on the reels – the BlackGreys and the Yellow Greens (there are no team names in the game, but black and grey are the color of the New Zealand rugby national, while the yellow and green combination is customary for the Australian Kangaroos, the South African and the Cook Islands teams).
The game is filled with a series of extra features that are meant to put even more cash in the players’ pockets.
First of all, any winning combinations landing on the screen will cause the symbols involved in them to disappear, with others falling into their place. This feature, called Rolling Reels, can trigger a series of cascading wins, especially since Wild symbols (that can stand in instead of any other symbol) are stacked. Two randomly triggered features will turn one or two reels into Wild reels (the Tackle and Pass feature), triggering extra wins.
What most players are waiting for in Rugby Star is the Free Spins special to be triggered. This is done by three or more rugby balls landing on the screen. Depending on the number of balls, the feature can reward players with up to 25 free spins, and the Rolling Reels get an upgrade as well – it can multiply wins by up to 10 times during free spins.
Rugby star can be tried free or played for real at the Royal Vegas casino.
