The English cricket season will be starting again soon of course, meaning there will be plenty of opportunities to attend matches – or watch coverage live on television – but also that there will lots of opportunities to bet on the matches, including placing future bets on which team will go on to win the County Cricket Championship.
At the moment Warwickshire are the favourites to retain the title they won last year, but that could all change when the action gets underway of course. However, as exciting as betting on the cricket season is, that doesn’t mean that it is the only fun way of combining the game and gambling – for example there is the cricket slots game The Umpire Strikes Back.
The pun in the title may be corny, but that is the only aspect of this game that you could claim this about, because this game is a fine mix of traditional and modern. The former comes in the fact that it is created in the style of a classic pub style game, with three reels and one pay line, while the latter comes from the cricket graphics on the reels (including the likes of cricket bats, helmets, pads and the umpire of the title), plus the maximum cash jackpot.
The jackpot available with this game is a very impressive $10,000, and there is nothing remotely nostalgic about that, but The Umpire Strikes Back is a hugely entertaining slots game even if you don’t win that much by playing it, which you can do at sites like www.iPadcasino.com.au.
The bonus game, which will be activated if you succeed in scoring at least three of the cricket ball icons on the screen, gives you the option of three different games – red, yellow or blue trail – each of which offers different potential benefits, from multiplier prizes of up to 2000x the bet you make, to superior on-reel features.
You also have the option of mixing it up, rather than picking a single trail to bet on, and overall The Umpire Strikes Back is a game that any cricket fan might like.
