Starmania has a real intergalactic feel to it, so if space-themed slots are your (space) jam, you will be sure to like this one. The atmosphere is really chill and relaxed, and it’s aided by the tranquil electronic soundtrack. In addition, the moving backdrop creates the impression that you’re floating in outer space, and popping against the backdrop of distant sparkling dots are the brightly colored symbols. These float about as well on transparent reels, and they feature a variety of complex gemstone stars. An easy way to distinguish them from one another is to note the level of complexity. The more intricate their structure the higher the payouts they can provide. The highest value of these symbols is the red and gold star, offering prizes of up to 500 coins for landing 5 on a payline.
Now as for the game’s layout, it boasts the regular 5 reels and 3 rows. These come with a total of only 10 paylines, but the paylines are fixed, so you won’t have the opportunity to regulate them before you start playing. However, with the available betting range you won’t really feel the need to; the minimum bet will set players back only 10p per single spin, and high rollers also have a chance to let their flag fly with a maximum bet of up to £500 per spin.
The special symbols are the only ones that have nothing to do with stars or elaborate designs, so they will certainly be hard to miss.
The Wild will be able to substitute for any of the regular icons in this game. Thus, it can help boost your winnings by contributing to winning sequences. But it won’t have the capacity to replace the game’s Scatter.
In addition, the Wild symbol doesn’t offer any of its own payouts and it will only be able to appear in positions on the three middle reels (2, 3 and 4).
Look out for the Scatter symbol. Unlike the Wild, it does actually offer some prizes when landing 3 or more anywhere in view, although not dramatic ones. What is really important about this symbol, though, is its ability to trigger the only bonus round in Starmania – the Freespins Feature.
More precisely, you will require at least 3 Scatter icons to land during the same spin, and as a result, you will receive a total of 10 freespins. Furthermore, for each freespin you will also get a Wild symbol on each of the three middle reels. This makes for a total of 30 Wild symbols throughout the Freespins Feature. You can retrigger it, too; by landing another 3 or more Scatters at the same time you can benefit from an extra 10 freespins.
Starmania offers a very nice setting, with decent graphics and very good winning opportunities. It’s a well-balanced medium variance title, and though the structure is very simple the game boasts a very high RTP, which is well worth considering.
