Take a classic fruit machine and customise it with a couple of extra twists and you’ll come up with something like Star Fall. Created by Push Gaming, it’s a 5 reel, 25 payline game that comes with wild re-spins and a free spins feature with potential frozen stacked wilds. Play from between 25p and £100 per spin.

Visually, Star Fall has a traditional feel – joining the A to J playing cards are lemons, grapes, cherries, melons and bells. The diamond is the most lucrative of the standard symbols – 5 of these gems on a payline will get you a payout of some 20 times your stake.

The gold star is the wild, replacing everything bar the coin stack – whenever the wild lands, you’ll trigger the Falling Wilds Respin feature. The reel in which the wild appears will nudge down 1 position and a new payout is made. You can get up to 3 nudges here depending on where the wild lands.

If you manage to fill the middle reel with the coin stack, you’ll trigger the Free Spins feature and be awarded 6 free spins. You’ll notice a meter above the middle 3 reels – every time a coin scatter lands, it will be added to that reel’s meter.

Once you have filled all 3 spaces in a meter, the relevant reel will become wild and will remain that way for the remainder of the free spins. It’s possible to turn multiple reels wild here which can deliver some spectacular results. The Falling Wilds Respin feature are in play during the free spins too (the exception being the locked reels).

Star Fall is pretty simple fare as far as design and playability go. The visuals are perfectly acceptable but lack the visual flourishes that are found from some developers (we’re looking at you Thunderkick!). The features are perfectly serviceable too and hit at fairly regular intervals. We’d put the variance in the low to medium range.

This isn’t the most exciting slot we’ve come across. However, it’s a perfectly solid effort though and offers some simple, but playable fruity action. I recommend you try Wild Neon which is also by Push Gaming.
