Power Stars Slot Review
The Power Stars slot
is more reminiscent of the "Hot" slots series from Novomatic which you'll probably have seen on the Multi Gaminator machines
in land casinos. The series comprises of Sizzling Hot Deluxe
, Ultra Hot and Xtra Hot
. The graphics used and style of the Power Stars game is more aligned with those games than say, Book Of Ra Deluxe
or Dolphin's Pearl.
However, what the Power Stars slot does introduce is expanding wild symbols coupled with free spins. Sort of. The wild symbol (a "star") is only on reels 2, 3 and 4 but when it lands, it expands and then gives an extra spin, holding the reel wild. If then during that free spin another wild lands, the same happens over again only this time with 2 wild reels held - and then again if you are lucky enough to get the third wild. Watch the video above to see this in action.
To be honest, although Power Stars is capable of some good payouts and seems to pay a little more regularly than many of the more volatile Novomatic slot machines
I find that it doesn't generate the same level of excitement that games like Ra, Lucky Ladys Charm
, Dolphins Pearl Deluxe
and newer games like Katana
and the excellent Mystic Secrets
manage to do. Basically because the feature, when it comes, is over to quickly. I like to savour the bonus rounds myself, lol.
But, like Sizzling Hot in particular, Power Stars has a big legion of European fans and is something of a cult slot game in some countries.
