Star Bounty is an epic sci-fi themed online video slot from Pragmatic Play. You’ll join a team of space bounty hunters on a mission to track down bad guys in outer space as you hit spin in the attempt to land huge cash prizes. Star Bounty is one of many new releases from this award-winning slot game provider. Other titles that have been released recently include ULTRA Hold and Spin, Curse of the Werewolf Megaways, and Peaky Blinders.
The game is played on a 4×6 grid with hexagonal symbols. This creates 4096 pay lines and allows you to connect any symbol with up to six other symbols to make winning combos. Bets start from £0.20 per spin and go up to a maximum of 100 per spin. This is a high variance game which means the wins won’t land as often as low variance games, but when they do, they’re more likely to be big wins.
Graphics and Theme
The Star Bounty theme is based around the heroic bounty hunters travelling through space to collect fugitives on the run. If you’re a Star Wars fan, the backdrop to the reels may look familiar. The developers of Star Bounty seem to have taken inspiration from the galactic city of Coruscant that was featured in the Attack of the Clones film. The reels are located inside a steel fitted room, with windows looking out onto the fictional space city. You can see lots of spaceships coming and going which adds an extra layer to the game, making it feel like a movie scene.
The soundtrack is a repetitive tune made from various synth noises that will help keep you focused while you hit spin. When you hit spin, a noise similar to the sound of spaceship doors opening will come through your speakers after the reels have stopped spinning the symbols land back on the reels with a laser noise. When you land a winning combo, you’ll be greeted with a classic win noise that lets you know you’ve got money coming your way.
Star Bounty symbols
There are three tiers of symbols in Star Bounty. The low paying symbols are made up of playing card symbols J, Q, K, and A. Aces and Kings pay out a maximum of £150 for six of a kind. The middle tier of symbols includes four different space symbols, each with its own colour. These are blue, green, purple and red, with red being the most valuable symbol, paying out £300 for six of a kind. Finally, the character symbols make up the high paying symbols and include a blue, green, purple and red bounty hunter. The red bounty hunter is the highest paying symbol in the game, worth £1500 for six of a kind.
The game also features a wild symbol and a free spins symbol.
This is like a cascading reels feature where the symbols that have been used to make up a winning combination will fall away from the screen to make room for new ones to replace them on the same spin. There is no limit to the number of tumbles that can happen, and all wins are added to the player’s balance at the end of the turn.
The missile feature is a great bonus addition to the game and involves a missile wild symbol that can appear anywhere on reels two, three, and four. When it lands on the reels, it will fire bullets into a random number of symbols, turning them all into wilds.
If this happens during the free spins feature, the wilds that appear as a result of the wild missile may have a 2x or 3x multiplier attached to them. This will help you to boost your winning totals if they can be used in a winning combination.
You will need to land three or more free spins symbols anywhere on the reels to activate the free spins round. Once triggered, the free spins symbols will stick in their position for a re-spin feature that takes place before the actual free spins round. The reels will re-spin, and if more free spins symbols land, you will be awarded +1 additional free spins for every new free spins symbol you land. The reels will keep re-spinning until no new free spins symbols land and your free spins total are added up. It’s possible to unlock up to 24 free spins.
Then you will begin the free spins round where all base game features are active as well as the wild multipliers. Unfortunately, the free spins round cannot be re-triggered.
Game How to Play
The gameplay follows the usual slot game procedures. You will be required to select your betting value which ranges from £0.20 per spin, up to £100 per spin. From there, you can hit spin manually or use the auto spin feature. Then you have to wait for winning combinations to land on one of the 4096 pay lines across the 4×6 grid of reels. The maximum jackpot of 24000 you stake can be won if you get lucky with the wild multipliers that are active during the free spins bonus round.
