Big Time Gaming is about to release their latest video slot, called Starquest, which will take all spinners on a cosmic mission, looking for outer space riches.
The spacecraft is about to launch any day now, so you better join the pretty female astronaut, who will guide you on your journey, protect you with her laser gun and award you with some stellar payouts thanks to 117,649 ways to win, stacked Wilds, free re-spins and multipliers.
The slot offers six reels and a bit peculiar number of rows, since you can land from 2 up to 7 symbols per reel. Other than that, the game is quite simple to use, so you will learn to control this spaceship in no time at all.
What We Love
We can say with certainty that the good-looking female astronaut will definitely be the central figure of the 2016 release. Good looks and tight clothes aside, this space trooper will amaze you with some rewarding features, since she functions as a full-reel Wild and is in charge of free re-spins and multipliers.
All you need to do is land the female astronaut on one of the reels, and you will instantly be awarded with a free re-spin and a starting 1x multiplier of the initial win. The full-reel Wild will remain locked on the reel, while your red-haired companion will use her laser gun to increase the multiplier by one and trigger a free re-spin.
You can get up to 5x multiplier on a single reel and up to 4 Wild reels during the re-spins, provided you land four successive winning combinations that include the full Wild reels. We also love the fact that all the won multipliers multiply each other, resulting with cosmic payouts!
What We do not Like
We really did not like the soundtrack, especially the part when you land big payouts. Don’t get us wrong, we love the sounds of Puccini’s, Rossini’s and Beethoven’s work when performed by professionals, but the electric versions that sound like mere ringtones are simply not our cup of tea.
The graphics are done ok to some extent, but we feel that Big Time Gaming could have involved some theme-related symbols, instead of using gemstones and playing cards, because the vast cosmos offers plenty of room for creativity in this department.
Action junkies will definitely not be satisfied with a single special feature. Despite the fact that the good-looking red-haired woman occupies your attention once you trigger the re-spins, you should bear in mind that re-spins do not come as often as one hope, so an additional bonus game or the standard free spin feature could have done the trick for those gamers who like their slots packed with action.
Sadly, there is nothing stellar about the Starquest slot except the female astronaut and the possible payouts. The graphics are done so and so, the soundtrack could be called a complete failure, especially the part with Nessun Dorma, Ode to Joy and William Tell-Overture, so we would advise you to mute the game.
A single special feature that is triggered as rarely as possible will not please action junkies, but, truth being told, gamers could return to earth with lots of cash on their balance if they find the way to persuade the sexy female astronaut to land on the reels more often and make good use of her laser gun.
The Megaways system and up to 117,649 ways to win in combination with full-reel Wilds and multipliers could tempt lots of spinners to give this space adventure a shot, especially those gamers who like their slots as simple as possible.
