Amazing Stars Slot
Feeling the need for some fruity nutrition? Well, you might just get your five a day with Amazing Stars, the retro themed slot machine by Novomatic software developers which was released in January 2015. Not only will you find a load of delicious (and potentially rewarding) fruit symbols, but you will also come across two unique symbols, both of which may lead to different progressive jackpots. There are also free spins and a gamble feature with which you can boost your winnings from the base game.
This 5-reel slot machine keeps it nice and simple by giving spinners no more than 5 paylines upon which to match the game icons. As such, this game is very straightforward to play. You can choose to have all 5 paylines active or you can decrease the number to have only a solitary line running across the middle of the reels. The only other variable is the size of the bet per line, which ranges from 8 to 2,000. So, you could potential play some very risky spins with this game by wagering a total stake worth 10,000 credits.
All wins are available on active paylines running from left to right, and they will multiply the value of bets on the respective line only. That is except for the scatter symbol, which will multiply total bets since it doesn’t need to appear on any particular line to form a winning combination. The least valuable symbols are the basic fruits – cherries, lemons, oranges and plums. Five of these fruits in a line will equate to 200x the line bet in winnings. The more valuable fruit symbols are the grapes and watermelon, both of which will reward 400x the line bet for five in a row. Admittedly, that is quite a decent return for the slot machine’s low-end icons.
Count Your Lucky Stars
Amazing Stars is also home to two very special symbols – the red retro 7 and the shining star itself. That is because these two game icons hold the key to the slot’s two progressive jackpot prizes. These jackpots keep on growing in size with every bet, wager and stake that is placed. The values can be seen atop of the reels and you will notice that the 7s jackpot is smaller than the stars. To get your hands on the smaller prize, you simply have to line up five 7s on an active payline.
The larger jackpot total is a little bit trickier to unleash, that is because you will need to fill the entire 15 reel positions of this 5×3 slot machine with stars. Who knows, your lucky stars might just align to win you the game’s biggest prize.
A Few Free Spins
Your chances of finding all 15 stars are greatly improved by the game’s free spin round. That is because 3 or more of these scatter symbols will trigger a round of 10 free games in which scatters will stack and hold until the end of the feature. These free spins will carry the same bet value and quantity of paylines that were used in the qualifying spin.
Fruits That Looks So Good You Eat Them…
Amazing Stars is a relatively new release from Novomatic, meaning that it does boast some impressively detailed graphics. Well, it is as detailed as a simple fruit machine style game can get. In actual fact, the game symbols are designed to appear very realistic with shining contours and droplets of water to make them look as juicy and delicious as the real thing. What’s more, a winning combination will cause the symbols to glow and move, just to emphasise that you have won some money!
Climb The Ladder To Claim The Grand Prize
Players can enter into a unique gamble round after any winning spin. This will take the spinner to a new game screen where they will see a ladder which leads up to a grand gamble prize, the bottom step of which will be flashing rapidly. To climb the ladder, the player simply has to click the “Gamble” button in time for the first step to light up. The light flashes so quickly that there isn’t much skill to it – it’s more of a 50/50 chance to double your money. If the step doesn’t light up then you will lose the original winnings and any accrued gamble wins.
A Classic That Everyone Can Enjoy
Amazing Stars is a contemporary take on the classic fruit machine theme. With some expertly designed game symbols, a simple gameplay structure and two progressive jackpots, this slot machine is sure to be a hit with spinners of all interests and experience levels. So far the game has proven very popular with players at Portuguese online casinos, as well as a slew of other nations, both in and outside of the European Union.
