Star Dust by Microgaming
There are many comparisons to be made between the game selections from Microgaming and NetEnt, but in the case of Star Dust we can’t help thinking that this is a case of MGS making their own version of one of NetEnt’s most popular games! Even the names share plenty in common and there’s every chance that our players will have heard of Starburst before as it continues to be one of the best promoted games in the NetEnt range. Microgaming is simply looking to muscle in on the action here with Star Dust to say the least as you can expect a whole new way to enjoy cosmic action on the reels!
Forty Lines of Gameplay
Star Dust makes use of a five by four extended board and they haven’t just done that for looks purposes, as the betting system of choice is a fixed forty win lines throughout the course of the game. We’ve already touched on the appearance of the game although it would be fair to say that this is one of the better looking recent releases from the developer as well, even with a few retro twists on the screen. One of the most prominent of these is on the Star Dust logo symbol, which also serves as a wild card throughout.
Land Galaxies for the Biggest Wins
Perhaps the most important symbol of all on Star Dust is the galaxy and this icon can land only on reel three. It is the symbol to keep an eye on when you’re looking to fill up the meter on the side of the screen as when it lands, it will collect any gems from the other reels and will also get that meter filled up. When it reaches the top, players will receive an instant prize together with between ten and thirteen free games. The board will grow and a 1,024 ways to win layout will come into effect for even bigger and better prizes and that’s not the only benefit of playing on the free spins. Players will also be able to benefit from Radiant Respins, which come into effect whenever a win of three or four of a kind comes into play. If you land a win of three symbols, then reels four and five will spin again in an attempt to improve it, and if you manage four of a kind then reel five will spin once more with the same idea in mind.
Comparisons between Star Dust and Starburst aside, this is an exceptionally solid game in its own right and it is always nice to see Microgaming adding something brand new to the board by way of features.
