With many developers adding more and more extras to their games it’s sometimes nice to play something a little more old school. That’s what on offer on Starstruck, a simple 3 reel, 5 payline slot from Nolimit City. Look out here for multiplier wilds that can boost payouts by 2x, 3x or 5x as well as a pick me round where you can win between 5 and 1,000 times your stake. Play on all devices from between 5p and £100 per spin.
Starstruck is a bright and bubbly affair as far as design goes. The 3 reel, 3 row machine features a colourful array of symbols. The lowest payers are the club, heart and spade symbols. Land 3 of them in any combination and you’ll receive an award of 0.2 times your stake.
Next come the single, double and treble bars which pay 3, 4 or 5 times your stake respectively, followed by the melon which awards 10 times your stake. The best paying standard symbol is the diamond which awards 15 times your stake if you land 3 on a pay line. That same award is on offer from the standard wild which substitutes for all of the normal symbols.
Joining the standard wild is the multiplying wild. These spin in stacks that are 5 symbols high and can double or treble payouts when they land on reels 1 and 3. Joining the 2x and 3x multiplier wilds is a 5x wild which can land on the middle reel only. Land more than 1 wild on the same payline and their multipliers are combined to offer an even bigger reward.
The only extra in Starstruck is the Starstruck Hot Zone feature. It’s triggered by landing the bonus star symbol in the middle position of reel 2. You’ll then be offered the pick of 8 star symbols. Behind each one is an instant win prize. This can be anything from 5 right up to 1,000 times your stake.
Starstruck is a simple but fast paced game. You can expect to see plenty of multiplier wilds. They can really come into their own if you manage to land more than 1 of them in the same winning combination. The pick me round is very straightforward but can deliver some decent action too. The variance is in the medium to high range with maximum wins of 1,635 times your stake from each spin including various multiplying wilds.
This won’t be a slot for players looking for backstory, features and plenty of variety. For simple, colourful fruity play, you won’t go too far wrong with Starstruck though. I also recommend Quickspin’s Durian Dynamite which features the world’s smelliest fruit.
