Here’s a game from Novomatic that lives up to its name and really is amazing. It’s another slot that is a bit of a throwback to the days when the fruit machine ruled the roost. It may well have some basic graphics and the soundtrack isn’t that sophisticated either but it’s still great fun to play.
The game has a total of five reels, three rows of attractive looking symbols and just the five paylines. Don’t let that small number of paylines put you off as there are still excellent chances to get some big wins here. Playing the game costs between £0.08 and £40.
Symbols in the game really do remind me of the days when I couldn’t wait to get down the amusement arcade and play the many fruit machines. They are a bit basic but still bright and cheerful to look at. There’s lemons, oranges, plums, watermelons, grapes and cherries, the nearest I ever got to having a fruit diet in my life.
There’s also the lucky red seven and hopefully it’ll live up to its name. It will do if you can get five of them on a winning payline as that wins you the progressive jackpot. How much you win depends on your stake but there are some good prizes to be had here. You need to be playing at the maximum betting level if you want to claim the entire Progressive Jackpot. Just think of your financial budget if you’re intent on winning this.
There’s also a gold star scatter symbol in ‘Amazing Stars.’ As you’ll read later this plays a big part in getting you into the bonus round. Some of the symbols can be stacked so that gives you a good chance of getting more winning combinations.
This certainly isn’t the most complicated game you’ll play all year. Even so it’s important to learn as much about it before putting your real cash into it. Access the paytable and find out what all the winning combinations pay and full information about the bonus game. Then have some free games and see just how everything works here.
If you can get three or more of the gold star scatter symbols anywhere on the reels, then this gets you ten free spins. Now the fact that they can appear anywhere is important to note as it means you don’t have to be activating all the paylines. Just activate the minimum of one and you’re still in with a chance of getting into the bonus game.
The golden stars stay just where they are during the free spins. For each gold star you have at the end of the free spins awarded you get rewarded the total amount of scatter symbols as one big win to boost your account balance. 15 of the gold star scatter symbols will really have you smiling as you’ll have won the mega jackpot. Sadly, you can’t re-trigger the free spins here.
If you look above the reels there are two little boxes that indicate how much each of the two jackpots is worth. If the fruit doesn’t get your mouth watering, then those boxes will.
There’s also a gamble feature here that appears in the base game. You can double your winnings with this in a 50:50 gamble. Just be careful with this as it’s a very quick way of losing some good winnings. You may well have 50% chance of doubling your win but there’s 50% chance you’ll simply wave goodbye to it.
It’s always good to see the fruits and 7s back where they belong, perhaps I’m just being sentimental but they do bring back a lot of memories. This is an enjoyable game to play, it may well have a rather basic look to it compared to the modern games we’re used to, but don’t let that put you off. The bonus game is a good one and hopefully you’ll be seeing lots of stars by the end of it. You’ll also be keen to chase the progressive jackpot but don’t go too crazy doing that. Definitely a game to play if you fancy a good time and a bit of a break from the more modern mix of wilds and multipliers.
