Every now and then a slot comes along that reimagines the norms of the industry and Big Time Gaming’s Star Clusters Megaclusters does this from the word go.
This slot is not for sleepy players, the explosive, bright colour scheme made us worry that our eyesight would begin to hurt after, it didn’t though. The quickplay of this game along with he colours is why we wouldn’t recommend it to players with a hangover. The coloured symbols alone are enticing, whilst the blue, red, orange, turquoise, green, yellow and purple gems can be overwhelming for players that are not accustomed to it.
The start of the game is simple enough, with a 4×4 grid that is packed with so many symbols it can be hard to know what exactly they all do. For example- when five or more matching icons land next to each other, the Megaclusters engine activates which in turn generates wins.
The betting range is very low and so you would think that this slot game is not for high rollers, however despite the £/€/$0.20 – £/€/$20 max stake there are returns up to 23.960x available, a mind-blowing return for a slot game. It is returns like this that could explain the top mark RTP (Return to Player) at 96.54% and the high volatility gameplay means that wins will not come thick and fast, but when they do it will be well worth the wait. It is when these wins occur that players will hope to be betting high in order to receive a windfall return.
The games Wild is represented by a a golden ‘Wild’ symbol that is able to increase the multiplier with each time it takes part in a win. This can result in bigger multipliers every time you get a win, not to mention this will split all winning symbols into 4 small ones of which when 5 are created the free spins round will begin. Players will receive 2 free spins for every combination of smaller symbols that reaches 5, along with a further 2 free spins each time the gold ‘Wild’ symbol multiplier gets up to 10x. On another note the reels seem to increase to an 8×8 setup which creates more mayhem in the game.
This slot is possibly one of the craziest games I have experienced, as mentioned earlier it has taken everything we thought we knew and turned it upside down. What is clear in this game is the exciting nature of gameplay and obviously the wins that are available. The main game returns are exciting, and the bonus features offer even more edge to this slot setup.
