Extra Stars is an offering from European Games Technology. This up and coming European design firm appears to have a penchant for using the classic slots icons and themes many of their slot designs on the traditional pub fruitie, this video slot is just such a game. It is a five reel ten pay-line e-machine, with a top in game prize of 1000 coins, but many other ways to win much more, including a tiered PJP.
Stars are the stars of the show in this slot. These Star Icons stack and provide a free spins to help make more winning combinations, so, are also the wild card. It basically turns the entire reels wild and this reviewer enjoyed more than a few very large wins on this feature. Once the first lot of wild winnings are added up, the free spin is rewarded to the player, and any winnings from this ad to the first winning amount.
Other icons are “7’s”, fruit – watermelons, plums, oranges, lemons, bananas, grapes and cherries. The Wild star appears on reels two, three and four, and substitutes for all symbols on the same reel. A gamble game is also on offer for wins below a certain threshold, and this is a double or quits type of game where winnings are risked and either double or lost with a guess of the colour of a card (red or black). It allows five attempt to double this money again and again, until the player wins, collects or loses.
Unusually for EGT slots, the pay-lines are not fixed, and a player may choose to activate one, there, five, seven or ten lines. There is however only one coin size which is one. However again players may choose how many coins total bet to play and this ranges between 10, 20, 50, 100, or 200 over all ten lines. These bet sizes obviously change according to how many pay-lines are made active.
