Novomatic’s Lone Star Jackpots Video Slot Review

Lone Star Jackpots: Demo

Head to the rugged south west of the USA in the Lone Star Jackpots slot. Created by Novomatic, this 5 reel, 243 ways to win video slot transports players to the wild deserts of Texas. It comes with plenty of extras too including free spins with all payouts doubled, stacked wilds that can trigger more free spins and instant win bonuses as well as streak respins where potentially massive jackpot prizes can be won. Stakes range from 25p to £50 per spin.

Head to the desert

Like most slots in the Novomatic catalogue, the design in Lone Star Jackpots is simply done. With the dusty plains of the desert in the background, you’ll see A to 9 symbols spinning around the reels alongside a collection of wild animals. The buffalo pays the most with 8 times your bet for 5 on a payline.

The cactus is the wild and replaces all symbols except the scatter and bonus symbols. It’s not the flashiest looking slot you’ll see but the range of extras make up for any lack of visual flair.

Free spins with 2x multiplier

Land 3 of the gold coin scatter on the same spin, on reels 1, 3 and 5, and you’ll trigger the Free Games feature. On offer here are 10 free spins. All winning combinations receive a 2x multiplier boost during the free spins with payouts doubled.

Bonus prize jackpot wheel

You’ll get a spin in the Lone Star Jackpot Wheel feature if you manage to fill a reel with a full stack of wild symbols on reels 2 and/or 4. With 1 stack of wilds, you’ll receive 1 of the following prizes. 2 are awarded if you landed 2 stacked wilds on the triggering spin. Depending on where the pointer lands, you’ll land:

  • A cash prize of up to 10 times your total bet
  • 10 free spins in the Free Games feature (with 2x multiplier)
  • A jackpot prize of 20, 30, 50 or 200 x bet

Lone Star Jackpots feature

The Lone Star Jackpots feature becomes active if you land 5 or more of the star scatter symbol on the same spin. The stars are held and the reels spin again 3 times. If a new star lands, the respins reset to 3. The round continues until you’re out of respins.

If you manage to fill all the reel positions, you’ll pocket the Grand Jackpot prize of 200 x bet. If you fill part of the grid with stars, you can still win 1 of the Mini, Minor, Maxi or Major Jackpots or a consolation prize of 15 times your total bet.

Classic features

You won’t go too far wrong with a slot that includes free spins with multipliers, a spin the wheel bonus and streak respins that offer a shot at landing massive jackpot prizes. All 3 are present and correct in Lone Star Jackpots. We’ve seen more flashy looking slots than this and it’s not as volatile as some. The classic features make this Wild West adventure well worth a spin though. Saying that, you can win up to 500 x bet on each free spin.

If you want a Wild West adventure, NetEnt’s Dead or Alive II or Quickspin’s Sticky Bandits: Wild Return are recommended.
