Starquest Slot Review
Explore the final frontier in Starquest, a six-reel video slot that works on a Megaways game engine. The 2016 release offers up to 117,649 ways to win and will take gamers on a real cosmic adventure, where they will be accompanied by a beautiful female Astronaut. There are no free spins on the offer, but players will benefit from stacked Wilds that cover entire reels and carry win multipliers, which can go up to 5x, and a Respin Wilds feature, which may secure massive wins. Get your space suit on and explore outer space for a starting price of £0.20 per spin.
We all know that precious gemstones can be found in mines, but this is the first time we have discovered them in outer space. There will be plenty of Rubies, Diamonds and Emeralds on the reels, but we advise you to look for the Logo of the game, since it pays the most, 15 coins for six of a kind. Playing cards are used for low-value symbols. There are no Scatters on the offer, but there are more than enough Wilds on the reels. The Wild is represented by a female Astronaut. Wilds cover entire reels, carry multipliers and trigger respins.
The 2016 release features six reels and up to 7 cells may appear on each reel. The Big Time Gaming product pays both left to right and right to left, so you can form winning combinations on successive reels, starting from the leftmost or the rightmost reel. Three of a kind is the minimum for landing wins. Only the Logo will pay even for two of a kind. Thanks to the Megaways game engine, gamers can benefit from up to 117,649 ways to win. The lowest you can wager in a single spin is £0.20, and the biggest bet cannot go over is £20.
Unfortunately, there are no free spins on the offer, but the Respin Wilds feature can be quite exciting. The full-reel Wilds cover entire reels once they appear and carry a certain win multiplier with them. The female Astronaut can appear on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 and counts as 5 symbols. If you get two or more stacked Wilds on the reels, all multipliers will be combined. One Wild can carry a maximum multiplier of 5x. A stacked Wild will trigger the Respin Wilds feature, with the Wild locked on its position. If a new stacked Wild is landed, respins continue and the multipliers on Wilds increase by one. The feature is over once no more Wilds are landed on the reels.
The Logo pays the most, offering 15 coins for five of a kind. Other high-value symbols do not pay as much. The trick is to trigger a many successive respins as you can and try to turn reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 into Wild reels for massive wins. All multipliers will combine and result in hefty payouts. Starquest’s RTP is 96.9%.
Starquest on Mobile
Not all of you will be able to afford a space suit and not all of you will have the chance to go in space and look for valuable gemstones. Fortunately for you, the Big Time Gaming title can be played across all devices, desktop and mobile, so you can visit the final frontier anytime, anywhere. The crisp graphics and excellent quality of the game will secure you the same gaming experience on any device.

We have said this so many times and we will say it again – we love when a video slot offers free spins. Unfortunately, this is not the case with Starquest. On the other hand, the Respin Wilds feature can also be very exciting, especially if you manage to fill the reels with up to four stacked Wilds with multipliers. This will definitely secure you massive wins. Space may be the final frontier, but this space adventure could have offered a bit more action. All in all, the 2016 release is worth a shot.
