Starstruck is a pep-filled, retro-themed game that can surprise the player with few twists and turns towards some starry payouts.
Upon the first impression, Starstruck may appear like just another retro game on three reels and three rows. I can’t find a single element that can distinguish it from scores of similar games, but there are few highlights.
First off, the designers at Nolimit City have paid attention to detail, which overall, can galvanize any player’s curiosity. Yes, the game appears quite simple, but the gameplay can do more for you thanks to three multiplier wilds and something called Hot Zone that can trigger the Starstruck bonus feature.
Another thing that may not be obvious at the start is the game’s potential to multiply the multipliers. In view of the hit frequency of one in three spins and the theoretical RTP of 96.19%, there is a possibility for small, medium and big wins and that makes Starstruck hard to ignore.
Nolimit City has made a fusion of retro styles in this game. I don’t know if it’s just me, but the reel set does remind me of a jukebox. And speaking of old school, the symbols can be found on any slot machine made between the 1920s and 1980s.
An obvious example is the BAR symbol that comes in three variants, but there are also, and quite strangely, only three cards’ suits and a single fruit symbol – watermelon.
I must admit that the summary of the symbols on Starstruck stole a chuckle from me. I mean, why just one fruit symbol and not the usual fruit stand, if you will?
But who is counting, as all of the symbols come together in seamless gameplay that is peppered with sparkles and light. The sound theme fits the nature of the game nicely, but it will eventually get repetitive.
Despite the retro look and feel of the game, Nolimit City has added a couple of neat surprises that can trigger at any time during the gameplay.
There is a wild symbol that can substitute for any of the standard paying symbols, and it comes in three variants, that is, multipliers: 2x., 3x and 5x.
Don’t be surprised if you don’t see a wild symbol for a while, because they don’t come on too frequently. One of the reasons for this is because the wilds come stacked on all three reels, with the exception of the 5x wild, which can only land on the middle reel.
The kicker in this game is the possibility of landing a winning outcome that has more than one wild. In the event, the payout is going to be much better thanks to the wilds being cross-multiplied.
For example, if there is a 3x and 5x on the reels, that’s a multiplier of 15x on win.
The only non-paying symbol on the paytable is the purple star that has Bonus written across.
This symbol lands only at the center of the reel set in order to activate the Hot Zone, which starts the ‘pick-me’ bonus game where players can win between 5x and 1,000x your bet.
I think it’s worth noting again is that the hit frequency can trigger a win in every three spins, or thereabout.
There is another excellent piece of information that I think players will find useful. Starstruck comes with an excellent payout structure.
The only outcome that pays less than the amount of the bet is a combination of any of the BAR symbols, which pays 0.2x your bet. All other symbols pay at least 2x your bet (spade, club and heart).
Three single, double and triple BAR symbols pay 3x, 4x and 5x respectively and the watermelon, diamond and wild pay 10x, 15x and 15x your bet.
I can’t think of a better way to summarize what this game is and does than with the following ‘joke’: “There was a game called Starstruck and it walked into a BAR.” That’s right. There are lots of payouts made with the BAR symbols. On the other hand, the hit frequency is so wonderful that the game has the capacity to throw in a big win with the help of the stacked wilds.
Personally, I can’t find a better retro game than this because most retro games are slow and uneventful. Not the case here. Therefore, I can wholeheartedly recommend Starstruck to any player out there.
