Whats not so hot?
It’s no secret that Novomatic loves creating slot machines with fruity themes. It’s next installment Amazing Stars is no different and it comes with a few interesting bonus modes.
”Five ‘7s’ pays a jackpot that is bigger than any free spin wins you can win as much as 2,000 times your stake at the maximum wager.”
Amazing Stars is a cracking progressive jackpot online slots with 5 paylines and 5 reels. It even has a free spins feature that awards 10 free spins. Question is how do players win that elusive jackpot? Two progressive jackpots are offered: The first one is the ‘Star Jackpot’ where players must collect stars to unlock the jackpot and the second one is the Red Jackpot.
Bets can be made from 5 pence up to £50 per spin from PC desktops or mobile phones at our Novomatic Casinos. From a visual perspective the graphics are pretty basic yet colourful, paying symbols that appear on the reels are plums, watermelons, 7s, cherries, blueberries, oranges and melons.
The symbols that pay the top cash prize of 800x your stake are the blueberries and watermelons. That’s if you hit 5 of them on an active payline. Since it’s a progressive jackpot payouts can be tens of thousands, however, it’s volatile and justifiably so. As such it offers an average payout percentage (RTP) of 95.2%.
The coin range is 0.01 up to 10, as you increase your coin range so will your average bet per spin go up. The jackpot is seeded at £108908.77, in other words this is the top cash prize it pays.
When 4 red 7s appear any position on the reels you’ll win 2,000x your stake. But, when 5 of them pitch you’ll win the Red Jackpot.
”Amazing Stars is an entertaining progressive slot, players will move on once they’ve triggered the free spins bonus mode a couple of times.”
The scatter icon is the ‘Star’, 3 or more of them unlock the free spins feature awarding you 10 free spins. There’s a small caveat though it’s not your traditional free spins bonus game. Wins can only be gained from the stars, gain 15 scatter stars and you’ll win the jackpot. The free spins pays on average 40x to 50x your stake.
Upon conclusion of the feature the number of stars you’ve gained determines if you’ve won the Star Jackpot. The top jackpot can only be won if your average bet per spin is £50. If you play the game at lower stakes you’ll only win a fraction of the jackpot.
Amazing Stars progressive slots does not offer a life-changing payout. In its defense though it’s a straightforward 5 reel fruity game with a decadent free spins feature. Even though it requires a sturdy bankroll its jackpot is not as big as one would have liked. Then again if you win it, it will top up your bankroll nicely. A more apt word to describe the game is ‘intermediary’.
