Upon the many Asian-themed slot games, Microgaming’s newest release Star Gods is one of the better ones out there. It is a 5 reel slot, with 3 rows and 10 ways for the player to score a winning combination. Players are going to be surprised with frequent and decent payouts. With a fun design and exciting features, this is the game to try out.
Asian-themed slots are one of the most numbered ones out there. It is hard for providers to make an original game and something new for players to see because there are so many and they are often very much alike. That is why it is so great when a game with an interesting and unique design like this one comes out.
The design of the game is very cheerful with bright colors involved. In the background is a river with lotus flowers in it. Around are the most beautiful grass fields with blooming pink trees. There are also traditional houses surrounding it and the sun setting leaving a purple sky behind. The soundtrack consists of slow-paced traditional music and it is a great addition to the scene.
The symbols are the most interesting part as they are very random and have an interesting design. They include different colored coins, cats, pagodas, and envelopes. A gold star serves as the wild symbol and a gold ingot as the scatter. The game also features Chinese gods as main characters. The symbols contribute a great deal to the Asian feel of the game and will be loved by players who enjoy the theme in general.
With the 10 active paylines that the game offers, the player can win up to 1,800x the stake in a single spin. The minimum bet is 0,10 and the maximum is 200 coins per spin. The volatility is set at a medium level and perfect for players who like a steady game. The game offers a 95,97% RTP, which is not a bad offer.
The features of the game are just as fun as the design of it. First, we have the star wild symbol that can appear on the three middle reels. When it lands on one of them it expands to cover the reel transforming into a random god. This triggers the Win Respin feature where the reels spin until a winning combination has occurred. If the player lands another wild in the process the feature gets re-triggered.
Then there is the Free Spins feature that is triggered when the scatter symbol lands on the first reel with a wild present on any of the middle ones. The triggering wilds get locked in place and the player is awarded 2 free spins. It seems like not much, but wins are guaranteed. In case none happen, additional ones can be won. The feature can be retriggered where the player would win between 2 and 5 additional free spins.
Last but not least, is the Comeback feature that is activated at random during the free spins round. It can only happen if no wins have occurred or the feature has not been retriggered. There also has to be only one wild locked on the reels. If all of the requirements are filled out, the game awards the player with an additional 2 free spins.
The game has definitely proven itself as quite playable. With a fun Asian theme and characters with an amazing design, it is one of the better ones out there, appearance-wise. The features are interesting and keep the game exciting. They also result in some pretty satisfying payouts which are the most important part after all. The game should be added to player's lists, especially by the ones who enjoy the theme.
