Starscape Online Slots Basics
Starscape is an intergalactic-themed online video slot game created by Microgaming. The game contains 5 reels and 25 standard slot game paylines, as well as some cosmic scenery that includes a variety of planets and a backdrop filled with stars to match the game’s name.
This online slot contains both scatter and wild game symbols, as well as a Starscape Match Bonus feature in which players can win extra cash prizes and reveal a 3x win multiplier to increase their bonus winnings.
Graphics and Animations
Starscape, as its name indicates, has been designed to display the beauty of the cosmos, and is set against a deep black galaxy backdrop that is filled with thousands of glinting stars. Beside the reels stand colourful paylines, and the pay table has been kept simple and has a futuristic look to it. The reels themselves are completely transparent to bring players’ attention to the colourful and detailed symbols on the game’s reels.
These symbols include a number of vibrantly coloured planetary bodies such as a flaming sun and a blazing blue meteor, as well as other symbols that are equally as colourful in appearance. Accompanying these symbols is a number of different animations and unique sound effects that bring the reels to life when the symbols in question are involved in a winning combination.
On the Reels
On the reels of the Starscape online slot are bright playing card symbols 9, 10, J, Q, K and A, as well as well as a selection of space-themed items. These symbols include the sun, the moon, a red planet that resembles Mars, a green Saturn symbol and a flaming blue meteor. Also featured are the game’s logo and a futuristic-looking spaceship.
Wild Symbol and Jackpot Payout
The glowing white and blue ‘Starscape’ logo serves as the game’s wild symbol, which can substitute for all other symbols on the reels except the scatter. This Starscape wild symbol will also award players the game’s jackpot of 7,000x the stake when 5 wilds appear on any winning payline. Additionally, any winning combinations in which a wild has substituted for another symbol will automatically be doubled.
The spacecraft symbol is Starscape’s scatter symbol. Landing 3 or more of these symbols anywhere on the reels will activate the game’s main bonus feature, and just 2 or more scatter symbols appearing in any position on the reels will award scatter pays.
Starscape Match Bonus Feature
Once the Starscape Match Bonus feature has been activated, players will be redirected to a screen that contains a grid which has been divided into 25 spaces. This grid forms a colourful vista of the galaxy, and behind each block on this grid lies a hidden symbol. Players must pick spaces on this grid until they reveal 4 matching symbols, and the cash prize awarded to them will depend on which sets of symbols are completed. Certain symbols on the grid may also reveal a 3x win multiplier that will apply to any bonus wins won during the feature.
