In the mix of classic and modern, NetEnt delivers stacked symbols – glittering gems that float in deep space together with classic freshly-styled BARs and 7s – that form combos and super combos when they land in winning combinations in the Pays Both Ways pay system. All the while a lilting electro soundtrack mixes the star fireflies that float in the limbo space behind the reel case, creating an otherworldly effect. As usual for NetEnt games, the betting interface is well-designed and easy to use, making the overall gameplay effect seamless and allowing us to get on and enjoy the game. Unusually for a modern slot, though, we can opt to toggle the number of paylines we play through. While this does offer an extra level of strategy for the gamer, the simplicity of playing all 10 paylines and altering the coin value and bet level should offer plenty of strategy for most while also meaning we don’t miss out on all-important wins.
NetEnt loves in-game bonus features that don’t interrupt the gameplay, so the Starburst Wilds feature in operation in this online slot work to this ethos perfectly. Rather than have a complicated Scatter system, NetEnt operates Starburst Wilds on reels 2, 3 and 4 that expand to fill a whole reel or whole reels, plural. This is not limited to a single Wild, so we could potentially land Starburst Wilds on reels 2, 3 and 4 simultaneously, leaving us needing only two matching symbols on reels 1 and 5 as the remaining reels are re-spun to leave us with multiple Super Combo 5-hit wins in the Pays Both Ways system.
