Star Staxx Base Game and Features
Star Staxx is a 5 reel slot with 20 fixed paylines. Winning combinations are formed when 3 or more of the same symbols land from either left to right or right to left, starting from the left-most or right-most reel.
The minimum bet available here is £/€0.20 (£/€0.40 Super Stake) per spin and the maximum bet available is £/€200 (£/€400 Super Stake) per spin, with plenty of other options in between the two. Star Staxx has a theoretical RTP of 96.05% and a max win cap of 7,500x.
In terms of symbols, the highest paying symbol here is the Diamond, followed by 7’s, Bar, Bells, Cherries and Watermelon. Low-paying symbols are standard Ace, King, Queen and Jack. There are no Wilds present in Star Staxx.
Before you can begin spinning, you will have the option to activate the Super Stake feature.
Choosing to activate this feature will Double your current bet, for extra chances of forming valuable winning combinations.
In addition to this, special Star symbols will appear more often across the reels, increasing your chance for awards from the Prize Reel.
Star Symbol & Prize Reel
Above the reel set sits a special Prize Reel consisting of Bonus Win Prizes between 1x and 2,500x your bet and +1 or +2 Extra Spins. The Prize Reel will move one position to the left until a special Star Symbol lands on the reels.
Once a Star symbol presents itself, you will be awarded either a Bonus Win Prize or Extra Spins, depending on what sits directly above the reel where the Star landed.
Landing a special Star symbol on a reel with Extra Spins present on the Prize Reel, awards the total number of Free Spins. Each Star symbol present will be awarded with the Extra Spins and added together.
Extra Spins are Free Spins played out during the base game. The Prize Reel will continue to move one position to the left and Extra Spins can be awarded during this time.
Star Staxx: Our Verdict
Star Staxx speaks to the heart of players that like to keep things simple. It’s got a classic fruit machine look, simplistic ethereal backgrounds and good old fashioned diamonds and 7’s to complete the look.
Mistaking Star Staxx for a copycat of your favourite fruity would be a mistake though, because it’s much more capable than the clunky old machine in your local wetherspoons. 7,500x is the top figure here, which isn’t bad at all considering how rather simple it all looks.
Multipliers are of course to thank for Star Staxx’s impressive capabilities, but will that alone be enough to win people over?
Old school players might like it, but if you’re big on the innovative game mechanics, weird and wonderful themes than it may all seem a little dull to you.
Given a chance, it’s surprisingly compelling, but it’s not Stakelogic’s best by any means.
