In general, Galaxies are not thought of being benevolent. At the centre of most lies a spinning black hole, swallowing up matter and time and generally causing most things that fall within its Event Horizon to have a bad day.
However, this December, a new Galaxy swings into town in the shape of a fantastic new Microgaming slot StarDust and this stellar visitor is a lot friendlier than its real life counterparts.
First up, let’s deal with the basics of the slot. This is a 5×4 slot with 40 fixed paylines in the base game. Spins start at just 0.40 per spin but can be scaled up accordingly to suit the budget of the player. The theme of the game is stars and, well, gems. Admittedly not the easiest of bedfellows but somehow on this retro-feeling slot, it works.
The reason it works is because of how the gems and galaxy symbols interact in the base game. When you land the Galaxy symbol on the third reel, it collects all the gems available on screen. When 10 to 13 gems have filled the StarDust Meter, it triggers the free spins round.
Each gem collected comes with a cash prize and one free spin, both of which are triggered when the player lands free spins. Yet that is not all, during free spins all Wild symbols are stacked 12-high across the reels, and you have a staggering 1024 ways to win on every single free spin.
That’s not all though as with the Radiant Respin feature, every time you land a 3 or 4 symbol winning payline, the reels not involved in the payline win will be re-spun to see if you can increase your win from that round.
Blessed with bright, eye-catching graphics, stunning sound and genuinely absorbing gameplay, the StarDust slot will take you on a journey towards the 100,000 coin jackpot.
And if you are a brave enough space cadet, who knows you may even find it.
