The English cricket season has started again, meaning there is plenty of opportunities to attend matches – or watch coverage live on television – but also that there will be 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 and can be found at places like jackpotcity.co.uk.
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.
