Blast off into the cosmos on a quest for hidden space jackpots in Shooting Stars Supernova. This 5 reel, 10 payline sequel from Novomatic comes with win both ways payouts, expanding wild re-spins, transforming symbols and a Hi Roller mode where you can add stacked wilds to the reels. Start your interplanetary quest from between 50p and £50 per spin.
If you’ve played the original Shooting Stars slot, you’ll find plenty that’s familiar in the sequel – as far as design goes, things are virtually identical. The reel features the same 5 planet symbols alongside a swirling black hole. The bright orange sun provides the hottest potential jackpot – land 3, 4 or 5 on a payline and you’ll win 5, 20 or 25 times your total bet. The bonus features are very similar too.
Shooting Star Bonus feature – look out for the shooting star wild which can land on the middle 3 reels only. When they hit, they expand to fill the whole reel. You’ll also be awarded a re-spin with the stacked wild locked in place. If more wilds hit, the process is repeated. In theory, you could end up with a spin with all 3 middle reels wild which can lead to some explosive results.
Supernova Bonus feature – this new addition sees supernova symbols brought into play. When they land, they can magically morph into a standard symbol or even a wild. This creates new winning chances and the possibility of triggering the Shooting Star Bonus feature.
The major amendment to Shooting Stars Supernova is the arrival of a Hi Roller Mode – there are 2 options available here. Playing in Silver Mode will set you back 5 times your normal stake – that extra investment brings stacked wilds into play on the middle 3 reels. The stakes are doubled to 10 times your stake if you opt for Gold Mode – stacked wilds are added to all 5 reels if you go for Gold.
The sound and visuals in Shooting Stars Supernova are almost identical to the original. The gameplay has a very similar feel too. The original was a low variance affair but you can certainly warm up the sequel with the Hi Roller options.
This is a relatively simple game that takes a small number of features and hammers them home relentlessly. If you like plenty of variety then Supernova likely won’t float your boat. If you like the basic, hypnotic gameplay and regularly hitting re-spins, then you’ll want to explore this celestial adventure.
