If you’re in the mood for a classic online slot game but also with some shiny top graphics, then try Stars Ablaze. This is a relatively new online slot game by software manufacturer Playtech, and it brings together the best of two worlds – vintage style slot machines and new modern video slots. The symbols feature all of your typical fruit icons such as the familiar plums, cherries, lemons, oranges, and watermelons. In addition, there’s a red lucky 7 which is, contrary to what you may be expecting, not the most lucrative symbol on the reels; it’s actually second after the golden star, which offers payouts of up to a whopping 7,500 times your line bet. Now that we’ve covered the ‘stars’ bit of the title, let’s also investigate why they’re ablaze. Notice that the backdrop is split in half horizontally; the bottom is blue and the top is red, whereas the middle is occupied by a thin line of flames.
Now as for the game’s layout, you will find that it’s more of a modern one as opposed to your traditional retro layout. It has 5 reels and 3 rows and it comes with a modest number of only 5 paylines. The paylines are fixed so you won’t be able to go below that, but the betting range in this offering is a very agreeable one. It starts off at a minimum bet of only 5p per single spin. The maximum bet, on the other hand, will set you back a total of £500 per spin.
It’s not common for old school slot machines to feature special symbols, but this one does. In fact, it has two, and one of these special symbols is the Wild. It will be able to appear in any position anywhere on the reels, and while it doesn’t offer any payouts of its own, it will be able to substitute for any of the other icons here.
In doing so, the Wild will help complete winning sequences to further boost your winnings. However, the one symbol that the Wild will not be able to replace is the game’s other special symbol – the Bonus icon.
The Bonus symbol only lands on the odd reels 1, 3, and 5, and in order for you to trigger the Blazing Bonus Feature you will have to land all three of them at the same time. This will take you to a new screen where you will have to pick one of six identical fruits.
Your pick can reveal a cash prize or the Collect icon. There are five levels in this game and it ends either with you reach the fifth level or when you reveal the Collect symbol.
Stars Ablaze may not have any freespins or other traditional bonus features, but it will still be able to potentially deliver very big rewards. As a matter of fact, the variance ranks in the medium to high range. So it might take a while to trigger the Blazing Bonus, but it can prove to be very lucrative when it happens.
