Star Dust is a five-reel, 40-payline video slot from Microgaming. You can play from 40p to £100 per spin.
Star Dust takes an outer space theme and turns it into a retro arcade style slot. The back and purple hued background makes way for brightly coloured symbols in the form of precious gemstones. The lower value icons are represented by playing card symbols. The game’s logo is the wild symbol and the swirl of star dust is the bonus icon.
In the base game the Star Dust logo wild symbol is stacked on all reels, which can lead to some pretty decent wins, especially if you get stacked wilds on more than one reel at the same time.
In order to trigger the free spins round you need to collect gemstones. Every time the bonus symbol appears on the middle reel it will round up gems from the other reels and deposit it them in the meter at the side of the screen. When the meter is full you’ll be awarded a cash prize and between 10 and 13 free spins. Even better, during this feature the 40 paylines are replaced with an incredible 1,024 paylines.
During the bonus game if you land a three-symbol win, reels four and five will re-spin to try and come up with an even better winning combination. If you have a four-symbol win then only reel five will re-spin.
With its retro look and trippy soundtrack, this game is sure to appeal to fans of old-school arcade games looking for a slot with more contemporary features. The free spins round has the potential to be incredibly lucrative and the stacked wilds add excitement to the base game.
