The wombat says: Journey through the galaxy Wombat Fans with Microgaming’s retro intergalactic themed slot, Starscape. It’s about as far from the cats in their Witches Wealth slot machine as you can imagine!
This wombat loves a bit of sci-fi, in fact I was the first marsupial to attend Melbourne’s largest ever Trekkie convention where I made quite a stir as a Vulcan.
But I digress… Fans of Starburst and other space-age slots might think this looks familiar, but as long as it’s full of astronomical payouts, who cares if it’s a little derivative? It’s time fire up those engines and get ready for lift off.
Look and Feel
Here you’ll find a nice user-friendly interface as always from a Microgaming slot- the people behind the Legend of Olympus slot, accompanied by some colourful space-themed graphics depicting far off galaxies, colourful nebulas and the infinite cosmos. Your reels are set on a deep space background and the soundtrack isn’t too grating either which makes a nice change. It makes the Sterling Silver slot look a bit monochromatic!
Starscape slot has 5 reels with 3 rows and 25 pay-lines. While your symbols on the reels are made up of brightly coloured intergalatic themed icons.
The low value symbols in Starscape are represented by the traditional playing card icons, 9, 10, J, Q, K and A, and as you would expect, the high value symbols are represented by a whole host of celestial bodies and include the sun, moon, a blue flaming comet thing (not a galah) and a planet that looks a lot like Saturn with its ethereal and mystical rings.
Scatter and Wild Symbols
The wild symbol in Starscape is the Starscape logo, and it will substitute for all other symbols on the reels with the exception of the Scatter symbol to help you rack up those winning combos! Plus, any winning spins that are created by using the Wild symbols will be automatically doubled thanks to a x2 multipler. Meanwhile landing 5x of the logo Wilds on any payline will scoop you a whopping 7000x your bet. Whoo hoo! What an out-of-this world win!
Keep your eyes open for the spaceship on the reels too, Wombat Fans, as this symbol is the Scatter, and landing 3x or more of these beauties anywhere on the reels will set off the bonus feature.
This extra feature is triggered when players land a minimum of 3x the spaceship Scatters anywhere on the reels. Once the bonus feature is triggered, the player (that’s you) will be transported to a new screen that features a grid. Here you’re presented with a straightforward pick ‘em game, with the aim of matching 4 symbols. Each pair of matching symbols has a different prize value hidden underneath it and there’s also a multiplier on offer that can be uncovered during the round and applied during your base game play.
Not a bad little game all things considered. It has a fun theme that is carried across the whole game, and features some eye-catching space visuals, but Starscape slot is definitely missing a Free Spins round, and while the bonus is good it can’t make up for the lack of extra goes.
