Atari Star Raiders slot review
Atari Star Raiders is a video slot based on the original Atari game of the same name. This intergalactic throwback includes a stereophonic modern take on the old sounds and symbols reminiscent of the original arcade games. This is not the only Atari-inspired slot from Pariplay games, who have also released Asteroids as a 5 reel wagering game.
On the reels...
The slot Star Raiders has 20 paylines 5 reels and 3 rows. Press 'spin' and you'll hear a collection of sounds like you would hear standing in an old games arcade. You have an interesting Wild in that each time one lands although they don't multiply they will stick from 2-5 spins. This may help attain the highest win as 5 Wilds on a payline awards 1000x stake! The rest of the awards are low - 10x stake for the top-paying symbol and less than 1x stake for the lowest number. There is a reason for this, apparent when you trigger the bonus.
There is only one feature on Star Raiders - 3 scatters anywhere triggers 10-20 free spins, not retriggerable. You have the sticky Wilds on all reels as above but there is one enhancement: the game transforms to a 243-way slot during free spins! With the sticky Wilds obviously multiple wins can occur and this explains the low values for the 5-reel wins.
Atari Star Raiders doesn't have a spectacularly high RTP - it's only 94.5%. The game is very low variance due to the frequency of the sticky Wilds and the strings of small wins as a result. Fortunately, the feature is quite frequent although the returns from it won't be huge. You'll get a decent amount of playing time for your money and as such may be one to consider for burning through a bonus wagering requirement. But, other than that, you may want to pull up your retro spaceship in another galaxy for now...Review by Gamingslots
