Starbust Slot Game
The main peculiarity of the slot machine lies in the vast winning opportunities, as the pay lines go both right-to-left and left-to-right. The game offers a maximum win of 50,000 coins.
This game of luck belongs to the video slot category and offers an RTP of 96.1%. Starbust has 5 reels, 10 pay lines, and 3 vertical rows. Its peculiar features include: the wild symbols, the double-direction pay line.
Starbust is set in the outer space where the stars gleam and twinkle all around you. Since the 10 pay lines score in both directions, you could say that the slot has 20 pay lines. There are no scatters and free spins, but Starbust features the so-called wild symbols.
These symbols are similar to standard wild elements that can expand all over the reel. They can emerge on 2, 3, 4 reels. Starting from the spot of their appearance, they expand to occupy the entire space of the reel. This causes the reels to spin, increasing the probability of winning. If such a repeated spin leads to the emergence of another wild element, the new symbol also starts to expand, leading to another spin of the reels. This can occur three times in a row, after which the player returns to the main round of the game.
Since the 10 pay lines score in both directions, you could say the player has double chances of winning. During the game, you can change the betting level, the number of pay lines, the number of coins wagered per line (1-10) and their value (1-100 cents).
The variability of pay lines, betting amounts and coin values allows for a multitude of winning combinations limited only by the following conditions:
- the min bet on 10 pay lines is 10 cents (the first-level bet plus a penny);
- the max bet on 10 pay lines is 100 euros (the tenth-level bet plus a one-euro coin).
Winning sequences and payouts are calculated in accordance with the table you can access by clicking on the Paytable button.
The video slot scores only the biggest win on the line. A winning sequence goes either from the rightmost reel to the left or from the leftmost one to the right. If several such combinations appear on the pay lines simultaneously, they are summed up.
