What is “Winstar” mobile slot about?
Winstar mobile is an HTML5 video slot from the software developer Blueprint Gaming. The slot includes 10 paylines across 5 reels and 3 rows of play, and a progressive jackpot. It translates well across devices, and is playable on any Android smartphone, iPhone, or tablet. The betting range is from €0.2 to €500 per spin, and the highest win aside from the jackpot is €250,000. There are no free spins or bonus rounds, but the game includes a mystery symbol similar to a wild.
Look & Feel
Winstar has a similar tone to classic arcade games, using a dark blue background streaked with lines suggesting the rings of a planet behind the reels. The reels are transparent, so that the full effect of this background can be appreciated. The reels feature basic symbols, including numbers and letters, and variously designed stars. The sound effects are also in the style of a classic arcade game.
Game and Winnings
The paylines are pre-set at 10 in this slot, and this is not adjustable, but the betting range is wide, so that players still have flexibility in their betting options.
Winstar has a betting range of €0.2 to €500 per spin, with payouts from the reels reaching up to €250,000. The game also includes a progressive jackpot, meaning that some of every bet (in this case 4%) placed in the game is added to a seed amount provided by the gaming company. This can be won by turning all five reels gold during the gameplay – this is a random event and cannot be affected by events in the game.
There is a symbol that functions in a similar way to a wild: the spinning gold star, when it appears, will rotate and reveal a symbol at random at the end of a spin. This can result in a winning combination, or simply in a random symbol appearing.
Several different stars appear in this slot: the spinning mystery star has no value of its own, but the most valuable symbol is also a star – a silver one with many spikes. Red, green, and blue stars also feature and have higher values than the number and letter symbols. The silver star, if it appears in every reel position (i.e. if it appears 15 times in one spin), pays out 1,000x stake.
Winstar includes an autoplay feature which allows players to select a stake to bet and spin up to 50 times at once. The settings also allow for fewer spins in increments of 10. Autoplay can be stopped at any time during those spins.
