Stars Ablaze is a 5 reel, 5 payline slot which is powered by Playtech – the game can be played from as little as 5p to as much as £500 per spin across desktop, mobile and tablet devices. This fruit machine inspired offering offers wins of up to 1,500 times your stake as well as a pick me style feature.

Set on a blazing background, Stars Ablaze looks sharp yet simple. It has its fruit machine roots with symbols on the reels including cherries, lemons, oranges, plums, watermelons and red 7s. You also have the star symbol which is the most rewarding symbol as 2, 3, 4 or 5 across any of the 5 paylines will give you 3, 20, 100 or 1,500 times your total stake!

To help you along the way, you also have a wild symbol which substitutes for all symbols except the Bonus scatter. If you get the Bonus scatter anywhere on reels 1, 3 and 5 simultaneously, you will trigger the Blazing Bonus feature. This simple feature allows you pick a symbol to give you a cash prize. You will pick from a row of symbols – it only ends when you reveal ‘Collect’.

That’s about it when it comes to Stars Ablaze – there’s no free spins feature but the Blazing Bonus feature can be lucrative as I’ve had wins of up to 500 times my stake before. The way to win big is by getting 5 Star symbols across a payline but don’t hold your breath as it’s hard to do – I found it to be a medium to high variance offering. If you like simple, fruit machine-inspired slots, Novomatic offer plenty.
