The Umpire Strikes Back is quite possibly the only title in the world which could give a classic cricket themed slot mass appeal. It's built using Microgaming technology and uses the ever popular pub slot format. This means multipliers, nudges, win spins, holds and plenty more bonus features are included as well as an impressive $10,000 maximum jackpot.
The Umpire Strikes Back Theme
A grinning umpire can be seen in the slots foreground wielding a cricket bat. He must be pretty accurate with it too, judging by the players in the background who can be seen diving or scurrying away.
The slot uses an informal layout similar to other pub slots. You'll notice the reels are in the middle of the screen which leaves plenty of room for the paytable and nudge trails in the fringe areas.
Many of the reel icons are cricket themed too. These include cricket bats, 4 placards, 6 placards, pads, helmets and the umpire himself. You'll also notice a couple of standard icons such as cherries, lemons and oranges which are used to bolster the lineup to 9 regular icons in total.
Betting Options and More Functions
The main reels benefit from nudges, holds, win spins and shiftas. These are features in addition to the bonus round which we'll talk about later and in our opinion give the game a true pub slot feel.
The Umpire Strikes Back Slot Features
Three or more cricket balls on screen (on the payline or not) will trigger the bonus game. This presents three higher or lower games which can advance you along three different trails. The red trail awards multiplier prizes which max out at 2000x your bet. The yellow trail awards progressively better on-reel features and the blue trail awards up to 50 nudges.
You can mix and match which trail to gamble on (some might start on a 9 for example so you'd pick to go lower on that one first). It's worth remembering that you can lose, so try to collect if you think the odds are against you.
Our Take on The Umpire Strikes Back
We'd have never predicted in a million years that a slot based on cricket could be so much fun. The quirky graphics, bonus features and sound effects all combine to create a very entertaining slot, whether you enjoy cricket or not.
