Boldy go where no MegaWays video slot has gone before in Star Quest. This futuristic looking game has been created by Big Time Gaming and is played on a 6 reel, win both ways game engine where the number of ways to win can reach an enormous 117,649. Look out too for stacked multiplier wilds which also award respins whenever they hit. Blast off on all devices in this medium to high volatility game from between 20p and £20 per spin.
The set up in Star Quest is pretty straightforward. Set against a star-filled backdrop, you’ll find A to 9 royal symbols spinning around the reels alongside brightly coloured gemstones. The best paying symbol is the SQ logo. Land 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6 of these on adjacent reels and you’ll receive a payout equal to 2, 3.5, 7.5, 25 or 75 times your stake.
The MegaWays game engine means that the number of symbols on each reel changes with each spin. As does the number of MegaWays. If all 6 reels reach their maximum height of 7 symbols, then the MegaWays totals 117,649. Unusually for a MegaWays video slot, the action here is win both ways. That means winning combinations can start from reel 6 as well as the usual reel 1.
Appearing everywhere apart from reel 1, the female astronaut is the game’s wild. Whenever the wild lands, it expands to fill the whole of the reel. A stacked wild also triggers the Respin Wilds feature. With a respin awarded, the wild remains in position for that respin too and also comes with a multiplier boost that starts at 2x but can reach up to 5x. Land another wild here and the process is repeated.
If you have more than 1 multiplier wild in play on the same spin then there values are combined. For example, 2x and 3x wilds would deliver a 6x boost. With each reel offering a potential 5x wild, some big results are possible here as a multiplier up to 15,625x can apply!
We’ve seen sharper looking space themed video slots than Star Quest. The visuals here are a little on the crude side but they do the job. It’s the stacked wilds and win both ways MegaWays game engine that make this a playable game. If you like MegaWays games, then the medium to high variance Star Quest is well worth a spin – you could win up to 10,000 times your bet on each spin/respin! If you like MegaWays games, Medusa MegaWays from NextGen Gaming is recommended.
