Star Clusters Megaclusters Slot Review – Big Time Gaming
One of my favorite studios within the casino industry Big Time Gaming has had an incredible year, with a new release each month. Including games such as ‘Pirate Pays Megaways’ and ‘Beef Lightning Megaways’. Today we are looking back at one of the provider’s 2020 game releases. This slot is titled ‘Star Clusters Megaclusters’, originally released on 19th June 2020.
Star Clusters Megaclusters has simplified visuals to keep the attention within gameplay. The slot background is a single colour with some faint animations. The reel set is eyecatching thanks to the colourful selection of gem symbols. I am surprised there is not more detail in the slot background, but it shows more thought went into the gameplay and volatility.
This game has a setup of 4 reels by 4 rows ( 8 reels by 8 rows max), this includes cluster pays of 5 symbols or more. Star Clusters Megaclusters is a high variance game due to the max win capped at 23,000x and set RTP of 96.54%. You can bet from £0.20 – £20.
Star Clusters Megaclusters Paytable & Symbols
There are 9 symbols in total, this includes 4 low-paying symbols. These are represented by light blue, yellow, orange, and green-shaped gems. There are also 3 premium symbols, these are represented by blue, red, and purple-shaped gems. The highest paying symbol is the purple gem, which pays 50x for a cluster of 25 symbols or more. In addition to these regular symbols is a rainbow star wild and a gold rainbow wild. Regular wilds substitute for all symbols except gold wilds. Gold wilds substitute for all symbols.
Up to two gold wilds can occur. Gold wilds start at 1x and increase by 1x when one or more gold wild is part of a win. This multiplier resets when no more wins occur during the spin.
Star Clusters Megaclusters Features
When wins occur all symbols part of the win will explode and each individual symbol is replaced by 4 smaller symbols. When a win occurs with these smaller symbols, symbols of the same size above them collapse downwards and new symbols drop in place to fill spaces. These reactions continue until no more wins occur during the spin.
Central to Star Clusters Megaclusters is the ‘Free Spins‘ feature. This feature is triggered when 5 or more reactions occur during one spin in the base game. 2 Free Spins are awarded and an extra spin for each reaction that occurs after 5. The gold wild multiplier carries over from the base game. Every time the gold multiplier reaches a multiple of 10, 2 additional spins are awarded. The gold wild multiplier does not reset during these spins.
Overall, I think this game is revolutionary from Big Time Gaming. This is the studio’s first grid game concept and introduces a new innovative concept to the casino world. I am very excited for this game to drop and interested in people’s opinions in the casino community.
