Starz Megaways Slot Game (Pragmatic Play)
Starz Megaways is a 2020 release by the gaming giant, Pragmatic Play. This slot game uses the Mageways technique, but from what I found out, Starz Megaways is not purely original.
On the design, part of it looks like it borrowed some inspiration from the Starburst a popular slot game released by NetEnt.
It looks like Pragmatic Play is trying to attract players who are interested in NetEnt games.
For Starz Mega ways, Pragmatic Play has used 6 reels and up to 117,649 Mega ways. There is nothing unique here given that, a majority of slot games that use the mega ways technique rely on this particular set up.
The game is very high in volatility, and among its features are free spins, and some expanding wilds.
Betting and Prizes
For the betting prizes, you have the option of selecting between $0.20 which is the smallest, and $100 per spin, which is the highest.
I’m happy to see high rewards that you can take home from this slot. Starz Megaways offers as much as 10,000x the stake, as the top prize.
Although it’s a game with high volatility, the developer has announced a good RTP of 96.48%, meaning, the slot will not take all the money from you.
Starz Megaways Slot Features
Just like Starburst where it draws its inspiration, Starz Megaways does not come with a lot of features.
However, the most common symbol which is the wild is present on this slot. It appears in the form of a star. If you manage to land the wild on the four reels in the middle, it will expand to cover the entire reel.
However, since the wild will not be present on the first and the last reels, it will not contribute to direct payouts.
The free spins are the other notable features here, and you will get them with the help of the bonus symbols. These symbols land scattered, and if 3 to 6 of such appear, you will be rewarded with between 6 to 15 free spins.
Theme & Design
The theme is not original in any way. Apart from directly borrowing inspiration from Starburst, Pragmatic Play has used a storyline from other developers as well.
The Wild Star acts as the slot’s major symbol, in addition to the bonus symbol that comes with a fireball. For the regular symbols, we have images of gemstones and different planets. I love the game’s outstanding background image.
Starz Megaways is like a mega ways version of NetEnt’s Starburst. Pragmatic Play has copied almost everything including the features and the graphics.
Although there is a very small change in the features, they are almost similar to the ones found on starburst.
However, despite its lack of originality, Starz Megaways still manages to deliver highly profitable wins. Due to its highly volatile nature, I can only recommend this game to more experienced gamers.
