Starlight Princess Slot Review 2021

Gates of Olmpus and Sweet Bonanza fans unite for a ‘Kawaii’ take on a very popular hit.

Starlight Princess takes us back to that pay anywhere mechanic where massive multipliers are possible in the bonus, and this time we’ve got a bit of a Japanese influence going on in place of the mighty Greek one.

Can Starlight Princess be as popular as its sister slot Gates of Olympus? Lets find out.

Starlight Princess Base Game

Starlight Princess Theme

Starlight Princess paints a very different picture to the one seen in Gates of Olympus.

We’re in the sky once again for hits one, but in a very different setting indeed. Starlight Princess is an anime inspired title, so instead of the mighty zeus beside the reels, you get the Starlight Princess instead. The music really is something special though, with an upbeat dance anthem which has a sort of retro arcade feel to it.

This kind of style is very marmite. Some very much enjoy Japanese anime/manga style themes, and some thing it’s a bit cringe.

Starlight Princess Betting and Symbols

Starlight Princess has a variety of Betting options for players to choose from. For those who prefer a lower stake, the minimum bet available is £0.20 per spin. For those who prefer a higher stake, the maximum bet available is £100 per spin with plenty of options in between these two.

Like Gates of Olympus, Starlight Princess gives you the option to double your chance to win the feature by increasing your bet by 25%.

The highest paying regular symbol in Starlight Princess is the Sun, followed by the Heart, the Moon and the Star. Lower paying symbols are the Red, Blue, Green, Teal and Yellow Gems.

Starlight Princess Base Game and Features

Starlight Princess is a 6 reel slot with a pay anywhere mechanic. To form a win you will need to land 8 or more of the same symbols on any of the 6 reels.

Once a win is formed, the winning combination will disappear and new symbols will drop into position, filling the gaps via a cascade.

Starlight Princess has a distinct Multiplier Feature that can happen during any spin, this feature can definitely leave players a little starstruck!

Multiplier Feature

With the help of our ethereal Princess, random Multiplier symbols can land at any point during a spin in both the base game and Free Spins.

When a Multiplier symbol lands, it awards a random Multiplier between 2x and 500x! When the spin comes to an end and all winning combinations are complete, the values of all Multiplier symbols in view are added together and the total win of the sequence is multiplied by the final value.

Starlight Princess Free Spins

To trigger Free Spins in Starlight Princess you need to land 4 or more Scatters on any of the 6 reels, this will award you with a generous 15 Free Spins.

During Free Spins whenever a Multiplier lands in view and is followed by a win, the Multiplier value will be collected and added to the total Multiplier. Throughout the remainder of Free Spins, if a multipler lands and a win is formed the total multiplier value is also added to multiply the win.

Landing 3 or more Scatters during Free Spins, awards an additional 5 Free Spins.

Starlight Princess Our Verdict

If you liked Gates of Olympus, then there’s a good chance you’ll love starlight princess…If you can get over the anime theme that is.

The 5,000x Win potential is identical to Gates of Olympus, and the gameplay is also identical in every aspect. The only real differences here are the way its portrayed to the audience.

Overall, it’s nothing new from Pragmatic Play, but it’s a fun and different spin to a very popular game. In some ways Starlight Princess is even more fun than Gates of Olympus. It definitely has a more eccentric demeanour, but its upbeat and cheery.
