Super StarTurns Slot Overview
Super StarTurns slot from Barcrest and SG Digital give players a chance to experience the high life, with a dash the 1980s mixed in. The game is bright, some might say garish, and has the look and feel of a seaside pokie. If you picture Brighton Pier with its flashing lights and a funky old school soundtrack then you aren’t far off.
This game is all about the high life, but one that feels like it’s just within reach. To help players out, Super StarTurns has the ability to provide them with a substantial jackpot for those lucky enough to reach it.
This a brash game that may not appeal to everyone. If you are someone who thinks flaunting wealth is a bit vulgar then it may be off-putting. It wears its heart on its sleeve unashamedly. This is one game that celebrates the finer things in life like champers, holidays on the beach, and stacks of £20 notes. It’s not exactly subtle. But therein lies the charm we think. The gameplay is decent, the extra features proved to be intense and lucrative, and it can easily immerse you in its celebration of wealth.
All that’s left is to surrender to the audacious ride, go with the flow, and see where it leads us.
Super StarTurns slot offers 40 pay lines that are spread out over 5-reels and 3-rows. Casual gamers can leap right with wagers starting at 0.10 coins all the way into the stratosphere for high rollers of 500 coins a spin. SG has capped the maximum possible win to 250,000 which is a super win but could theoretically be higher than this. This may put off jackpot purists perhaps but it is still a healthy return for most punters.
The return to player rate is interesting. It alters in size depending on the size and type of wager. For those spinning with bet levels less then 2 they can expect an RTP rating of 94%. Bet levels of 2 and above garner an RTP rating of 96%. While players that choose to take part in the Big Bet feature can expect an RTP rating of 98%. Clearly, the more there is on the line then the greater the chances of winning something back.
One aspect of the Super StarTurns slot that is slightly disappointing is the low worth of most of the symbols. During the base game, the Wild symbols are by far the most valuable at 250x the wager and are the only one worth getting excited about. The lower paying symbols are the Queen, King, and Ace where three of a kind will get you an underwhelming 0.1x the stake, while 5 of a kind are worth 1.5x the stake.
The picture symbols aren’t a lot better. These start at 3 of a kind for 0.1x-0.5x the stake, up to 5 of a kind worth 2x-5x the stake. As you can see there’s not a lot to get excited about during the base game. Fortunately, there are several bonus games that provide the lions share of the thrills and wins.
The Super StarTurns logo is the scatter and three or more will trigger the StarTurns bonus feature. This feature consists of spinning a wheel for prizes. There are three wheels with prises that increase in value from Green to Red with Blue being the best. Three Scatters unlock a spin on the Green Wheel, 4 Scatters get you the Blue Wheel, and 5 Scatters unlock the mighty Red Wheel.
The wheels spin automatically and include prizes like wheel upgrades, 20x-500x the total bet returns, and between 4 and 50 free spins.
Bonus Free Spins
The free spins that are awarded by the wheels come with an unexpected bonus. To up the stakes, the game removes the low paying symbols from the reels to create more valuable wins. This means the Ace, King, and Queen makes way for the higher paying icons.
In addition to this nice little extra is that when scatters land during this segment of the game then more free spins are added to the total. The scatter only lands on reel 5 during the free spins and up to three can land at one time bringing 3 free spins with them.
The Big Bet
SG has tacked on a tantalising bonus game called The Big Bet which has three different levels. To take part in this exciting feature players choose whether they would like to front up £20, £30, or £50 for the privilege to do so. Each tier results in 5 free spins but with varying extras to improve the chances of winning.
At the £20 tier, the Scatter comes at twice the height for a higher frequency of bonuses. £30 gives a player double size Scatter as well as better rewards for the Wheel Bonus. The top tier £50 level gives the extras of the previous two as well as even more rewards on the Wheel Bonus. It can pay to play around with this feature in free play to see how it works. We seemed to have more luck with the £30 option, but of course, this can vary.
What makes Super StarTurns slot so special?
Super StarTurns slot plays it loud and proud. Yes, it’s a bit garish, a bit gaudy, but sometimes when you’re flush with cash it is fun to flaunt it a little bit. Symbols of wealth abound throughout the game, it’s just a shame that they aren’t worth a whole lot of money when they form a winning combination.
Fortunately, there are plenty of bonus features here to save the day. The Big Bet option, in particular, is one that is hard not to try at least once. If you are feeling brave and want a punt on one of these then they can work well if the stars are aligned properly. Have a play with it though, the levels didn’t respond as we expected them to so it’s worth experimenting with to get the best results
