Star Dust is an online slot game produced by Microgaming. This 5 reel, 40 pay line slot offers the chance to win up to 100,000 coins and 1024 different ways to win in its Free Spins feature. As the name might suggest, the theme is cosmic – the backdrop is outer space and the reels filled with glowing, colourful stars and gems.

The reel icons are made up of playing card symbols – typically, these are the lower value symbols – and colourful gems. Red is the highest value, followed by yellow, green and blue. There is also a Star Dust logo symbol which acts as a wild and substitutes for all symbols within the game. During the main game, the Star Dust symbol is stacked on all of the reels, but during Free Spins, the Star Dust symbol becomes super stacked on the fourth and fifth reel only.

The aim of the game is to trigger the Free Spins round, and you do this in Star Dust by collecting 10 gems which are added to the Star Dust meter on the right hand side of the reels. The galaxy symbol landing on reel 3 will help you to collect the gems – these are added to your free spins starting win – and once you’ve collected 10, your Free Spins will begin. You can view your current starting win at the bottom of the meter, alongside how close you are to landing your free spins, which is a real incentive to keep going!

Finally, Star Dust offers a Radiant Respin feature. This means that the reels can re-spin to boost your winnings. On a win featuring 3 symbols, reels 4 and 5 re-spin once to try and improve your winnings, on a 4 symbol winning line, the fifth reel will re-spin once.

Verdict

This game is very playable with a couple of decent bonus features to engage players. However, I think quite naturally, one is inclined to compare this with the very similar Starburst by NetEntertainment, and Star Dust unfortunately pales in comparison, graphically and gameplay-wise. This is a good game by all means but if I wanted to play an impressive cosmic-themed game, I’m not convinced that Star Dust is the one I’d choose.
