Star Clusters Slot Game Background
The Star Clusters online slot was released by Big Time Gaming on June 19th, 2020. The base game has a 4-reel, 4-row set-up plus a cluster pays system rather than the traditional pay lines and a max. potential payout of 23,000x the stake. This is coupled with several exciting special features including win multipliers and an elaborate free spins bonus round that’s played on an 8x8 grid, which is discussed in more detail below. The piece de resistance is the slot’s Megaclusters™ engine, via which any symbol that forms part of a winning combination is then broken down into smaller symbols, creating further clusters.
Star Clusters Slot Game Design
So it’s safe to say that Big Time Gaming has created something truly special with this slot. Load up Star Clusters and you’re immediately shown the 4x4 game grid encased in what appears to be a 1980s-style tablet device complete with slider panels! Contained within the grid are the game’s plethora of luminous jewels and star symbols. Radiant orange beams emanate from behind the tablet and cover the whole background, making one wonder if it's not floating directly in front of the Sun; if there’s a primary colour, then orange is it. The musical score when not spinning the reels is mysterious and esoteric. Spin the reels, however, and it transforms into an upbeat funky 70s-style tune, adding to the retro feel of the slot. It adds wonderfully to the presentation and complements the action on the reels perfectly.
Star Clusters Slot Mobile
The Star Clusters slot game is available on tablets and mobile devices such as Apple and Android, and of course, can also be played on desktop PCs. All that’s needed is a stable internet connection.
Star Clusters Slot Symbols
The lower paying symbols - comprising gems of every shape and size, are colourful, elaborately detailed, and of course, fit the retro theme to a tee. Of these, the turquoise, yellow, and orange gems have the lowest payout of between 10x - 20x the stake for landing 25+ symbols on the reels. Next up are the green, blue, red, and purple gems, and these all have a payout of 50x for the same.
The game also has two Wild symbols. The first is represented by a rainbow-coloured star and substitutes for all other symbols in-game apart from the Gold Wild, itself represented by a gold star with a rainbow-coloured background. The Gold Wild symbol has a couple of functions. First, it substitutes for all the other ones in the game, and two can appear on the reels at the same time. Second, should a Gold Wild symbol form part of a cluster, then a multiplier is applied to the win. This starts at 1x and increases by a factor of 1 whenever one or more Gold Wild symbols form a part of a cluster.
We’re sure you’ll agree that these are not the average run-of-the-mill symbols you find in other slots!
Star Clusters Slot Bonus Features
The slot game includes several bonus features, all of which are discussed below.
Thanks to the Megaclusters™ engine, any symbol in a winning cluster is replaced by 4 smaller symbols. Should these smaller symbols form part of a cluster win, any symbols of the same size collapse downwards, and new symbols drop in from the top of the screen to fill any available positions on the grid. Reactions, as these are called, continue until there are no more wins. In theory, this means that should all regular-sized symbols in the 4x4 grid be replaced by the 4 smaller-sized symbols at the same time, you could have a total of 64 symbols on screen!
Free Spins Feature
The Free Spins feature is triggered by landing 5 consecutive reactions on the reels, and 5 reactions = 5 free spins. Any reactions over and above the initial 5 will grant an extra free spin, 1 per extra reaction. As an additional bonus, any Gold Wild multiplier from the base game gets pulled over into the free spins round. An additional 2 free spins are awarded every time the Gold Wild multiplier reaches a multiple of 10.
The Free Spins feature itself takes place on an expanded 8x8 grid, and the Megaclusters™ engine is active here too, so any symbols in a winning cluster are broken down into 4 smaller symbols. Should all 64 regular-sized symbols on the reels be replaced by 4 smaller-sized symbols, you’d be looking at a whopping 256 symbols in play on the grid! Factor in Gold Wilds which work as they do in the base game) and Gold Wild multipliers, and you could be looking at a possible payout of 23,000x the stake!
