Super StarTurns is a flashy looking 5 reel, 40 payline slot from Barcrest. Taking inspiration from a TV gameshow, it comes with a feature round where spinning the Bonus Wheel can deliver up to 50 free spins and prizes of up to 500 times your stake. Stakes start at 10p per spin, rising to £500.

There’s a luxury feel to the design here. As well as the lower A, K and Q royal values you’ll see beachside cocktails, bottles of champers and wads of cash. The red sports car tops the bill here, awarding 0.5, 2 or 5 times your stake for a 3, 4 or 5-symbol combination. The wild performs all the usual substituting functions. It also delivers some pretty hefty payouts in its own right. Landing 5 on a payline results in an award of 250 times your stake.

So far, so standard. There’s the potential for things to warm up a bit when you trigger the Super StarTurns Bonus feature. To do so. you’ll need to land 3, 4 or 5 scatters on the same spin. The prize awarded depends on where the pointer stops the wheel:

  • Green Wheel – the prizes on the lowest value wheel offer between 4 and 8 free spins or an upgrade to the Blue Wheel.
  • Blue Wheel – on the second wheel, the prizes increase to between 8 and 12 free spins, cash awards of 20 and 50 times your total stake or an upgrade to the top Red Wheel.
  • Red Wheel – the goodies increase still further on the Red Wheel. You’ll end up here with between 25 and 50 free spins or a cash prize of between 250 and 500 times your stake.

If you land the free spins, you enter the Free Spins Bonus feature which are played on a new set of reels that’s made up entirely of higher paying symbols. Hope to see the scatter appear on reel 5 here too. Each one that does adds 1 extra free spin to your total.

Barcrest slots often give you the chance to up your stakes and play in Big Bet Mode and Super StarTurns is no exception. Pay £20, £30 or £50 for a series of linked spins that feature oversized scatters, a boosted paytable and extra awards when the Super Star Bonus Wheel is active. As usual, the RTP rises at the bigger stakes. In the base game, it’s a rather meagre 94%. In Big Bet Mode, it’s 98%.

We weren’t especially wowed by this game. The design is certainly on the blingy side but we found the gameplay to be pretty vanilla. The Red Wheel can offer some decent action. Just don’t expect to see it very often. Super StarTurns is solid enough. It doesn’t get a star prize from this audience though. I would rather play Who Wants to be a Millionaire by Big Time Gaming which is also based on a gameshow but offers much bigger payouts.
