Star Spinner is a classic fruit machine from Blueprint Gaming. Played using a 5 reel, 10 payline game engine, it comes with randomly transforming symbols and re-spins with stacked wilds. You’ll also have a chance to land a progressive jackpot prize. Play on all devices from between 20p and £500 per spin.
The set up in Star Spinner is simple but rather nicely done – the reels are set against a purple, deep space background with clouds of dust and shimmering stars. You’ll see a pretty standard assortment of fruity symbols spinning around those reels.
They include cherries and lemons which pay up to 25 coins per payline, melons and bells which pay up to 50x per payline, single and double bars which award up to 80x and a gold 7 which awards up to 100x. By far the most rewarding symbol is the white diamond – land 3, 4 or 5 of these in the same payline and you can look forward to a payout of 50, 150 or 1,000 coins.
Look out for the purple planet which is the mystery symbol – when this lands, it can transform into a new symbol. A new payout is then made with the transformed symbols in position.
The main feature is the Star Spinner feature – this is triggered whenever 1 of the Star Wilds lands anywhere on reels 2, 3 or 4. The star expands and turns the whole reel wild for the re-spin that follows. If another star lands it too turns wild and another re-spin follows. It’s possible to turn all 3 of the central reels wild and land 3 re-spins here.
Star Spinner is part of the Jackpot King network, so you’ll also have a chance to hit a potentially bumper progressive payout.
Blueprint Gaming has kept things nice and simple in Star Spinner – visually, it’s rather well done. There’s nothing especially flashy on show but it’s all very easy on the eye. The range of features isn’t wide either but you can expect to see the transforming symbols and re-spin triggering stacked wilds at regular intervals. Expect a steady stream of action here.
Star Spinner takes a couple of basic features and hammers them home relentlessly. That’s perfectly fine but probably won’t appeal to players who enjoy plenty of variety in their play. We found it perfectly playable though. If you’re after a straightforward fruity with a couple of extras thrown in then this should do the trick. I must say it’s very similar to NetEnt’s Starburst which isn’t a bad thing.
