Spaceships at the ready because we’re in outer space for this online slot game from Playtech. It really is out of this world and there are some stellar wins to be had in this game thanks to the respins, Supernova Scatter symbol and wild symbols.
They say in space no one can hear you scream but if getting a top win in the ‘Stars Awakening’ video slot, there might be someone who’d hear the celebrations. We’re in outer space and ‘Stars Awakening’ (I didn’t know they’d fallen asleep, did you?) has reels that are transparent allowing us to see outer space in all its glory. No spaceships or asteroids that miraculously miss the Earth by a few million miles
This is a five-reel game that you can play for free and for real cash. It has a total of 20 fixed pay-lines on its three rows of interplanetary symbols. It’s not rocket science that your only decision is how much to stake on each spin of the reels. The minimum cost of playing ‘Stars Awakening’ is just 0.20 and the max bet 200 if you have a high-limit. It can be played on desktop, mobile and tablet devices so it can be playing whenever and wherever you want, though I’m not too sure on the signal if you end up on the Moon.
The symbols in this game fit in well with its theme and you will love the 3D graphics. We get to see some aliens that wouldn’t look out of place in ‘Doctor Who’ and the planets where the aliens come from. The aliens are the lower paying symbols in this slot and represent the ten to Ace playing card symbols. The five main symbols are all planets and they come in red, yellow, purple, green and blue. It’s the red planet that is the one to keep an eye out for as five of those on a pay-line will win you 25x your stake. We also get to see some stars and it’s the planet Earth which is the wild symbol. The wild has the ability to substitute for all the other symbols and for a change that list includes the high winning scatter symbols.
Also keep an eye out for the huge 3×3 giant planet symbols. All rather useful when chasing wins and the even better news is that the wild symbols can also land in 3×3 size. Both only appear on the third, fourth and fifth reels. This is the Giant Spin feature and no need to be spending any time attempting to trigger it as this is a feature that can appear at any time.
You do need to trigger the Supernova Scatters feature and all that’s required to do that is get a winning spin. Doing so rewards you with a free respin and during this the purple planet suddenly becomes a scatter symbol. With another winning combination another respin is granted and this time the purple, green and blue planets become scatter symbols. If it’s your lucky day at the online casinos and another win comes along then all five of the planets now become Supernova Scatters. Any of the high win scatter symbols that are on the third, fourth and fifth reels now pay out a higher figure which is the paytable value times the number of times this symbol appears on each of the reels so there are some big wins to be had here in this rather special feature.
It’s important for any gambler to find out as much as you can about a slot game before pumping some real cash into it. That’s easy to do by playing some free Stars Awakening slot machine in order to find out just how everything in this slot game plays out. Also look through the paytable. That’s packed with information about the game and that will explain about the bonus features this game possesses. It’s an easy game to play though with the control buttons situated underneath the reels so setting your stake and spinning the reels is no problem.
There a few other slot games that have similar gameplay to ‘Stars Awakening.’ You can try out the Pragmatic Play release ‘8 Dragons.’ That also has a total of 20 pay-lines to try and get winning combinations on and has a slightly higher RTP. It does feature a free spins round and features a stacked wild and expanding wild. Also have a play of ‘Casanovas Romance’ from World Match. That’s another 20 pay-line slot with an RTP just below that of ‘Stars Awakening’ but offering its players a free spins round with a 3x multiplier.
This review believes that ‘Awakening Stars’ has a great look to it but the big wins aren’t that easy to get hold of. It will take you a while to trigger the Supernova Scatter Feature but when you do it is well worth it. The respin feature does come along more often and it’s an exciting part of the game as you strive to get more and more of the planets to become scatter symbols. An interesting game to play so give it a try.
