How to win big in Star Bounty – Free Spins
Three or more free spins scatters trigger the free spins bonus round. Each scatter landed adds 1 free spin while all other symbols are removed. The reels respin adding +1 free spin for every further scatter landed. Respins continue until no more scatters land. Fill the board for the maximum 24 free spins. There are no retriggers.
During free spins, wilds may have a 2x or 3x win multiplier attached. In the event that more than one wild multiplier coincides in the same winning combo, the multipliers multiply together.
- Tumble Feature
- Missile Wild Symbol
- Bonus Buy
More commonly known as ‘Cascading symbols’ among slot players, the Tumble feature allows for multiple winning combos to accrue during the same spin credit. After a win is added to your balance, the winning symbols disappear to be replaced by symbols tumbling from above. Any further wins resulting from the Tumble are added to your winning balance before the procedure begins again. Tumbles continue until no further wins occur. Wins are awarded for matching symbols on at least 3 adjacent reels from the leftmost reel.
As well as a regular wild symbol, Star Bounty also has a ‘Missile Wild Symbol’ which fire out a random number of wilds across the board. While regular wilds land on reels 2-6, Missile Wilds only land on reels 2,3, and 4. All wilds are active during both the base and bonus games.
For all those who can’t wait to get in among the bigger action, a Bonus Buy is available at a cost of 75x the chosen stake although this feature may not be available in certain jurisdictions.
Look and Feel of Star Bounty
Star Bounty is a fine looking game with great potential and a couple of well thought out features. The base game is set aboard a stationary spacecraft with two large windows on either side of the honeycomb hexagonal gameboard. From the windows, you can see animated spacecraft in flight, huge static space stations, along with other futuristic buildings in some far flung planet. The outcrops of land on which the buildings sit are surrounded by a vast, red-looking ocean. During free spins, the craft you’re on appears to be travelling at warp speeds as showers of stars fly past the windows either side of the spacecraft.
The game’s 12 regular symbols are split into low value symbols (royals J-A), mid value symbols (space insignias) and high value symbols (2 masked humanoids and a female and male bounty hunter). The male is the highest value symbol, with 6 of a kind paying 15x the bet size. See all symbols and associated values below (paytable based on stake of €1 per spin).
Free spins, as you’d expect from a games with 10/10 volatility, can be very hit or miss. However, the frequency of triggering them is higher than you might expect. Furthermore, land a few missile wilds with multipliers and sizeable wins quickly rack up.
This is a competent game from Pragmatic Play which is aesthetically pleasing, very playable, and with enough sting in its tale to attract players from any galaxy.
