Starz Megaways Slot Review – Pragmatic Play

Pragmatic Play is still working hard, even with what’s happening in the real world currently. With multiple game releases per month still happening, some of us struggling to keep up with them all when announced and released. This includes ‘John Hunter And The Book Of Tut‘, which is one of many slot sequels including the character John Hunter. Which is the studios only reoccurring character currently. For the studios latest game announcement, there is one central mechanic which takes up the spotlight. This new game is titled ‘Starz Megaways‘, set to release June 11th across all sites.

This game has a galaxy theme, which is not a saturated theme in the casino industry compared to others. The game background is set in the galaxy with a mixture of colours and bright stars. There are small animations of stars moving and appearing. The visuals are very simple but effective for the chosen game theme.

Starz Megaways has a setup of 6 reels by 2-7 rows, this includes 117,649 pay lines. This game is high variance due to the set RTP of 96.48% and max win capped at 10,000x. You can bet from £0.20 – £100.

Starz Megaways Symbols & Paytable

There are 12 symbols in total, this includes 5 low paying symbols. These are represented by brown, light yellow, green, pink and orange planets. There are also 5 premium symbols, these are represented by pink, blue, red, purple and turquoise shaped gems. In addition to these regular symbols is a wild symbol and bonus symbol. The highest paying symbol is the turquoise shaped gem which pays, 2.5x for 6 across a pay line.

Starz Megaways Features

The wild symbol appears on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5. When a wild symbol hits in the base game it expands vertically with symbols of the same size to fill the whole reel.

Landing 3 or more bonus scatters during one spin will trigger the ‘Free Spins Feature’. 3 Scatters Award = 6 Free Spins, 4 Scatters Award = 8 Free Spins, 5 Scatters Award = 10 Free Spins and 6 Scatters Award = 15 Free Spins. During spins, all wilds that land will expand vertically with symbols of the same size fill the whole reel. Expanded wilds remain sticky until the end of spins. Spins cannot be retriggered and special reels are in play.


Overall, I think Pragmatic Play has created a very fun slot experience. The slot plays very similarly to other Megaways centred games and has high variance on offer with a max win capped at 10,000x. Be sure to try the game for yourself on release and check out our exclusive casino offers.
