The ancient Chinese gods have a treat up their sleeves for players this year. Behold Star Gods online slot, a title that transcends you into another world full of gold and fortunes. This is how the game is positioned from the outside, but how does it fare against the brutal competition that challenges it in the online casino world? With a few bonus features and a jolly old theme, we’ll break down the notable elements and items to get excited about, plus the items we’ll most likely forget in no time. Time for a detailed tour.
Star Gods slot is the creation of Golden Rock Studios, a new player in the game and not off to the worst of starts….visually, anyway. The graphics might be up there with some of the spectacular titles to have dropped in 2019, but it isn’t far off. Here we have a Chinese theme, with a zen background to the reels and a couple of smiling characters taking away the seriousness all too synonymous with the ancient Chinese theme. Golden Rock Studios might be new on the scene but they have ensured that the game is available on mobile, which all iOS and Android users will be happy to hear. The 5 reels and 10 paylines display pretty well on mobile, and desktop users might even find mobile a better fit.
It appears as if there’s a sizeable maximum bet of £200.00 per spin that players can utilise if they so wish. While most of us would be a little intimidated by throwing down such an amount on a slots spin, there are high rollers out there that live for these high amounts. The more cautious players can start wagering all the way down at £0.10, which is OK when starting out, but you might want to start upping the amounts if your sole intent is winning epic payouts. The higher the amount wagered, the higher your wins will be.
Most of the best online slots have playing card icons at the lower paying symbols. While it makes things a tad boring they do serve the purpose of making the value of your wins easier to determine. In Star Gods online slot there aren’t any playing card symbols, but rather ancient Chinese coins in differing colours – bronze, silver, gold, green. The symbols then rise in value with an envelope, a smiling cat and an ancient Chinese structure. The Chinese structure is the highest paying of the regular icons.
Golden Rock Studios have followed the standard format of implementing a wild symbol and a scatter symbol. The wild, which substitutes regular symbols to form winning lines, is the gold star, while the scatter is the golden hat.
Wilds appear on reels 2, 3 and 4, with all having a special function. When a wild lands it will become stacked, as well as sticky. This is because it will remain stacked and in place for multiple respins. The respins will only stop once another wild or scatter appears on the reels or a win is achieved.
If you happen to land one or more expanding wilds as well as a scatter symbol on the reels then you’ll have triggered a free spins feature. Don’t expect a bottomless pit of spins, as you’ll only be awarded 2 free spins with the expanded sticky wilds, however you can re-trigger the feature to get yourself more spins.
Playing Star Gods slot is an enjoyable experience, mostly due to the expanding, sticky wilds. This is because they are the source of most of the wins, and make it so you can bet a little higher than usual because they will earn you back most of the losses that you might have suffered. We did find the conservative amount of free spins awarded a little unnecessary, but we assume it’s a result of the wild generosity. The reels are full of fortune and awaiting your arrival.
