The max win in this video slot is 10,000x with an RTP of 96,48%. The Starz in the slot game is the wild symbols and the rest of the symbols are made up of planets and sparkling gems. Let’s see what they pay per way and line.

  • Teal Gem – Pays 2,5x your bet if you land 6 on a payline
  • Purple Gem – Pays 1x your bet if you land 6 on a payline
  • Red Gem – Pays 0,75x your bet if you land 6 on a payline
  • Blue Gem – Pays 0,60x your bet if you land 6 on a payline
  • Pink Gem – Pays 0,60x your bet if you land 6 on a payline

  • Brown Planet – Pays 0,40x your bet if you land 6 on a payline

All the symbols pay from left to right and/or right to left on adjacent reels. Six of a kind is paid twice, once for each direction. In the bonus, this is really awesome if you have a couple of sticky wild reels up.

The Wild Symbol

The wild symbol in Starz Megaways is the amazing STAR of course. It substitutes for all the symbols except for the BONUS symbol and it appears on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5. When a wild symbol hits in the base game it expands vertically with symbols of the same size to fill the whole reel. Landing a couple of wilds on the reels usually means that you are in for a big, base game win!

In the Free Spins bonus, the wilds that land and expand are sticky and stays for the whole duration of the free spin’s bonus.

Starz Megaways Video Slot Bonus Symbols

Free Spins Bonus

The bonus symbol is a red shining Sun. And a Sun is also a Star as we all know! The Bonus symbol can appear on all the reels in all sizes depending on the Megaways for the current spin. To start the “pre” free spins feature you need to land three or more bonus symbols in the base game. When this happens, you get a respin. When the respin is triggered, the bonus symbols are fixed on the reels and you get another chance of landing more bonus symbols for more spins!

  • 3 Bonus symbols – awards 6 Free Spins
  • 4 Bonus symbols – awards 8 Free Spins
  • 5 Bonus Symbols – awards 10 Free Spins
  • 6 Bonus Symbols awards 15 Free Spins

After the respin is over and you have been awarded spins depending on the number of Bonus symbols that landed, the Free Spins bonus round will start. During the free spins round all the WILD symbols that hit on the screen expand vertically according to the Megaways of the current spin which means that you can get up to 7 Wilds on a reel. Expanded WILD symbols are sticky and will remain sticky until the end of the round.  The feature cannot be retriggered, unfortunately.

Starz Megaways Video Slot Bonus Win

Betting and Winning

Starz Megaways video slot is a highly volatile game which means that it pays out less often on average but with an increased chance of hitting big wins in a shorter time span. It pays from left to right, and right to left with symbols on adjacent reels. It has up to 117,649 Megaways to win and an RTP of 96,48%.

The minimum bet is set to €0,20 and the maximum possible bet is €100. No matter your bet size, the max win is 10,000x both in the base game and the Free Spins bonus. If you are lucky enough to get a 10,000x win in the Free Spins feature, the round immediately ends, the remaining spins are forfeited and you are awarded your win.

Conclusion and thoughts

Starz Megaways was the second video slot with Megaways that Pragmatic Play released. It was out on the market for us to play on the 11th of June in 2020. It’s a video slot that looks a bit 80’s themed in the design, which is really cool. The planets and stars can be a bit hard to differentiate when a lot of Megaways are present on the screen, but the game will let you know your win pretty fast.

Playing Starz Megaways is fun. When you land three bonus symbols you know there is another spin for a chance to get even more bonus symbols, hence more Free Spins. Altogether this is a well-designed video slot with a nice atmosphere when you play.

Starz Megaways is playable at most casinos that have Pragmatic Play as a provider. Check out Slotty Vegas Casino or Slothunter Casino to get a nice bonus to play with. But in the meantime, you can play the demo at the top of this review.
