Everyone’s favourite Japanese Princess is back in Pragmatic Play’s latest release of the series, Starlight Princess 1000!

Head into the clouds and indulge in a stunning anime-themed slot with colourful gems, tumble sequences, and Multipliers that can hit up to x1,000!

Pragmatic Play is known for pumping out new releases in quick succession, so it’s pleasing to see a slot that players are so fond of receive a new and exciting upgrade, and not in the cosmetic sense.

Starlight Princess 1000 Base Game

Starlight Princess 1000 Base Game and Features

Starlight Princess 1000 is a 6×5 Video Slot with a Scatter Pays mechanic. Winning combinations are formed when 8 or more of the same symbols land anywhere on the grid, regardless of the position.

The minimum bet available here is £.€0.20 per spin and the maximum bet available is £.€100 per spin, with plenty of other options in between the two. This game has a theoretical RTP of 96.50% and a max win cap of 15,000x.

In terms of symbols, the highest-paying regular symbol here is the Sun, followed by the Heart, Moon, and Star symbols. Low-paying symbols fall to Red, Blue, Green, Aqua, and Yellow Gems. There are no Wilds present here.

Each time a winning combination forms, all winning symbols will be removed from the grid, making room for new symbols to drop down from above via a Tumble Feature. This continues until no more winning combinations form.

Ante Bet

Before you can begin spinning, you will be given the option to activate the Ante Bet feature. Choosing to activate this feature will increase your current bet by 25%. Once active, your chances of triggering the Free Spins round are Doubled. (RTP 96.50%)

Multiplier Feature

During both the base game and Free Spins round, special Multiplier symbols can land in view at any point during a spin.

When a Multiplier symbol lands, it will reveal a Multiplier Value between x2 and x1,000. At the end of the spin, all Multipliers will be added together and applied to the total win of all sequences formed during that time.

Starlight Princess 1000 Free Spins

Landing 4, 5, or 6 Scatter symbols in the base game triggers the Free Spins round, awarding 15 Free Spins and a payout of 3x, 5x, and 100x your bet respectively.

During Free Spins, whenever a win is formed and is accompanied by a Multiplier, it will get added to the total win Multiplier. For the entirety of the Free Spins round, each time a Multiplier lands and results in a win, its value is also used to multiply the win.

Landing 3 or more Scatter symbols during this time will award an additional +5 Free Spins.

Starlight Princess 1000: Our Verdict

If you fell head over hills for the original Starlight Princess, then there’s a strong possibility you will love everything there is to offer in Starlight Princess 1000.

Our ethereal Princess waves her magic wand and delivers Multipliers to the reels as normal, yet with the new upgrade, she’s now able to deliver a Multiplier Value of x1,000!

When Starlight Princess is feeling particularly generous, she can magic up a x1,000 Multiplier that is applied to all wins formed during that spin. Even better if you land it in the Free Spins round, where it is added to the Total Win Multiplier for future spins.

Like a wife who is pi*sed at her husband for leaving a sink full of dirty dishes, this Princess can also have bad days. There’s nothing worse than seeing that x1,000 Multiplier appear on the reels, yet no win in sight for it to activate.

With the newest Multiplier Value comes a flashy new max win cap to go with it. On a good day, Starlight Princess 1000 can conjure up max wins of up to 15,000x.

All in all, there doesn’t seem to be any limitations to this Princess’s abilities, and we can’t wait to see which Pragmatic Play title gets the ‘1000’ treatment next!
