Microgaming celebrates 2015 Rugby League Cup with Rugby Star

In anticipation of the 2015 Rugby League World Cup, which kicks off on September 18, software giant Microgaming is releasing a brand new online and mobile pokies game called Rugby Star.

A 243 ways to win slots game, Rugby Star boasts scatter symbols, stacked wilds and a wild pass feature, with the wild pass feature tuning up to two entire reels wild within the base game (triggered randomly, but more so with larger wagers).

Microgaming’s exclusive ‘Rolling Reels’ mechanism also features within the base game and within free spins mode, and has the potential to award consecutive payouts, one after the other, without any additional spins. Spin a winning combination, and the icons which complete the winning pattern will disintegrate to make room for new and potentially winning icons, in a rolling fashion.

You can read our review of Rugby Star pokies and try a free game demo, or check out the video below for a look at its gameplay.


Up to 25 free spins are available if you spin three or more scatter symbols, and you can also trigger a multiplier of up to 10 times your original wager.

Rugby Star joins the other Microgaming ‘Star’ series sporting pokies games, such as Football Star, Cricket Star and Tennis Star.

The game will be released at all licensed Microgaming online and mobile casinos on September the 9th, 2015.

Lucky Zodiac, another new release from Microgaming (five x three reels, 20 payline game), also hits Internet casinos on September the 9th, featuring sparkling wilds and firecracker scatters.
