Free Winstar slot
Please be patient, some games take longer to load than others!
Winstar slot is one of the most simple games you'll ever play, and possibly the most profitable if you get really lucky! It resembles other games such as Netent's Starburst and Nextgen's Starmania but has the volatility of the brutal Novomatic slot Power Stars. Unlike those games you can win a progressive with this one, but otherwise the set-up is pretty similar as we shall discover. We have transparent reels over a starscape graphic and some quite urgent but catchy techno beat music as we spin, but will Winstar be more of a black hole for your playing balance?
On the reels...
All symbols are stacked and like the comparison slots above we get 5 reels of 3 rows so it is possible to get a full screen of any icon. The pays are all adjacent on the 10 pay lines, which means we can win with any 3 consecutive symbols on a line. You would get 500x bet for a screen full of white stars, the top pay or 50x for a 5-of-a-kind win. Red stars pay 40x, blue or green 30x with A or K at 20x and the remaining 3 card values paying 10x for the full line.
There are stacked Gold Stars on all reels and when these land they will all spin a few times then reveal the same symbol underneath, which may or may not assist you in your quest for a win.
From time to time on random spins one or more reels may appear to land with gold edges to them. Should all 5 come to a stop with the Gold boxes surrounding them, you win the casino's progressive for the game. The higher the bet, the more likely this is though.
Winstar slot is high in RTP at 96.44% which includes the progressive contribution but is also high in variance. You find long streaks of dead spins interrupted by the occasional cluster of wins of various amounts and hits of over 100x are rare. If you get a succession of close wins and raise your balance that's often a good sign to abandon ship. The graphics and sounds are pretty basic but then that's the idea. Don't be tempted to play Winstar too long in search of the random jackpot, or your losses certainly could be on the galactic scale...
