Starblast: an astronomical adventure awaits

Starblast is a fantastic new slot that takes you onto an inter-galactic journey where you get to see the sort of stuff that you’d normally only see in sci-fi films or through one of those incredibly expensive and refined telescopes.
Which is a lot more than you can say about most other slots that have less impressive themes behind them.
The latest trend seems to be that people like the idea of going into outer space, living out there for a bit but not really knowing if it’s possible to get back to Planet Earth if you’re a little homesick.
So why not take a far safer voyage into Outer Space by playing a great new slot where you can enjoy the ride, soak up the atmosphere (or lack of it) and win a nice little sum to make it all worth your while?

How to play Starblast

Well, the first thing you’re going to have to decide on is whether you want to play Starblast in free-play mode or for real money. There’s nothing wrong with having a few spins with ‘play money’ but once you’ve got the hang of it and want to spin for real, you’ll have to start by deciding on a stake.
You can play for as little as 0.10GBP a go or as much as 100GBP a spin, which is pretty risky but equally, highly rewarding if those glitzy, colourful jewels fall your way.
The game will display five different amounts to play at as a default and you can choose more or less by pressing the + and – buttons located to the right and left, respectively.
You can adjust other aspects of the game like the volume but one thing you can’t adjust is the number of paylines that are active; it’s always 10.
It’s a 5x3 reel slot and you put those reels in motion by pressing the big green button just to the right of where the different stakes are displayed.

Starblast Features

If you were ever to fall sleep and have a weird dream where you were floating in space surrounded by colourful jewels- we’re not sure why there would be jewel-like symbols floating in space either, but let’s just go with it – then your surroundings would look like the reels here on Starblast.
The jewels come in five different colours and then there’s a Red 7, a Bar symbol and the Star symbol, which is the Wild and…actually no, you’re going to have to read the next section to find out what it does. Sorry!
Have a guess at what is the highest-paying symbol. No? Ok, well it’s unlikely to be one of the five jewels and it’s not the Red 7 either, so in true style of the classic casino slot, it’s the Bar symbol.
Getting five of them in a row, remembering that the slot pays from left to right only, pays you 16x the value of your bet and is the biggest win you can secure, without the help of a Wild.

Starblast Wild symbol

See that pretty star that appears on the reels now and then and either has a 1x, a 2x or a 3x on it? In addition to looking attractive, it also has a very purpose in this game and it’s to act as the Wild.
Except in this case, it’s not a lone-wolf type of Wild but rather, it’s part of a pack and can easily appear alongside its ‘Wild’ mates. Like one of those cray guys who appears at a party and creates havoc and then 10 minutes later his equally crazy mates come along as well and do the same. Well, sort of.
Here, the more Wilds the better. They can only appear on Reels 2,3 and 4 and as we started by saying, they can bring with them a multiplier of 1x, 2x or 3x with them which is applied every time they form part of a winning combination, where they substitute for any other symbol to help you out.
And that’s not even all they do because they’re what triggers the game’s bonus feature.

Starblast Bonus Feature: Re-spin

There’s a bonus feature in this game and it’s a re-spin activated by getting one or more Wilds on the reels.
Every time you secure a win with the help of a Wild, it will expand and stay locked in its place for a re-spin.
If during the re-spin another Wild appears, then it will also stay locked in its place and you’ll be awarded another re-spin. If that happens again, you guessed it- all three Wilds will have expanded and you’ll have Expanded Wilds occupying the whole of Reels 2, 3 and 4.
So now you have a 9x multiplier in place for that all-important third re-spin. Should the Starblast Gods smile on you then, you can win 4000 times your stake, which is the slot’s Jackpot.

Conclusion

There is already a large offering of slots  in most casinos, and some games are definitely better than others. This is one of the better ones.

Part of the reason is that there isn’t just one Wild waiting in the wings to appear and trigger that re-spin, but three.  What that means is that during the re-spin you can have two or even three of them on your side and a multiplier of up to 9x about to kick in. The Jackpot is therefore one of those that is certainly worth winning.
