Big Time Gaming invites you to set off on an intergalactic journey through space and explore 117,649 ways to win.
Starquest is an addition to Big Time Gaming’s list of slots with Megawin feature. That means that apart from unlocking both ways to win the slots can hold up to seven symbols per reel to increase the number of winning ways.
In terms of visual impressions the only thing worth mentioning is the Wild symbol depicted as a gorgeous astronaut girl that justifies the name and the theme.
The very number of winning ways makes your head spin, that is for sure, but the experienced slot players know better than to get carried away by the flashy titles and digits. Let’s dig deeper before we make our decision about BTG’s Starquest.
What We Love
At first sight we can say that the attractive looking astronaut girl in a tight space suit will definitely be everyone’s favourite character. Not only because of her dashing looks and mean attitude, but because she appears covering full reels and generously awards stacked Wilds.
Each time she appears stacked on a reel, the girl will trigger a re-spin and add a multiplier to your wins.
If you see a clone of this girl on another reel, the good thing is that the first one will stick around and increase the multiplier by one. This way, if four middle reels become stacked with astronaut girls, you will have a bunch of locked wilds and up to 5x multipliers.
This sounds promising of huge payouts, but the question is: how often will you have the chance to get these girls on the reels? The game appears to be highly volatile so don’t expect to be showered with Wild girls.
The payouts table remains to be seen when the slot comes out, but if we are to judge by Big Time Gaming’s previous releases, the base game symbols are not too rewarding, so don’t get your hopes up.
What We Do Not Like
Our first impression is that the design and the soundtrack should have been much better. Apart from the red lady dressed in a space costume there is nothing much to make this theme worth looking at.
The rest of the game includes precious stones and playing cards, which seem randomly mixed together and make this game plain boring, especially when the reels divide into seven tiles. The soundtrack is unimaginative and nerve-racking.
There are many things yet to be seen in this slot. For example, the payouts table and whether there will be a Free Spins game or not. Those factors could affect our verdict significantly. So far, we must say that 117,649 ways sound impressive, especially with the stacked Wilds and multipliers.
Though the graphics and soundtrack were slightly disappointing, it can all be forgiven if this slot turns out to be as lucrative as it sounds. Honestly, we are slightly reserved due to the high volatility of the game, but the slot definitely caught our attention and we believe it is worth a spin or two.
