The wild symbol in this game is the game logo itself. The wild symbol can be used to substitute for the other standard game symbols to form a winning combination on the reels. The wild symbol only appears on reels 3, 4 and 5 but all appears stacked. This means that the wild symbol can take up multiple places on one reel making it easier to create a winning combination.

Free Spin Bonus Round

The scatter symbol in Cricket Star is the cricket ball symbol. The scatter symbol is the key to activating the free spin bonus round. To trigger the free spin round, players must land 3 or more scatter cricket ball symbols anywhere on the reels. The more scatters that trigger the round, the more free spins are awarded. Once triggered, 3 scatters awards 15 free spins, 4 scatters awards 20 free spins and all five scatters awards the maximum of 25 free spins. The free spin round cannot be re-triggered but it does include rolling reels.

Rolling Reels and the Wild Ticket Feature

In addition to the wild symbol and free spins, Cricket Star also includes rolling reels and a wild ticket bonus feature. During the free spin round, the rolling reels will come into play. When a win is created, the reels involved in the win will continue to roll until no more wins are possible. The wild ticket bonus is a random bonus feature that can happen at any time during the main game. Once triggered, three tickets will appear on reels 2, 3 and 4. A cricket ball is bowled towards them and the reels will fill up with wild symbols turning the reel completely wild. This gives players even more opportunity to create a winning combination.
