Starmania is a cosmic-themed online slot game produced by NextGen Gaming. The mesmerising backdrop is outer space, whilst unusual and striking stars make up the reel symbols. This 5 reel, 10 pay line game is visually brilliant, with a futuristic feel and a soothing soundtrack. Don’t be put off by the few pay lines available, as Starmania enables players to win both ways on most symbols, and boasts a decent Free Spins Bonus feature with additional wilds added.

All of the Starmania reel symbols are stars, apart from the Wild and the Scattered Bonus; these are easily distinguishable from the rest. The bold red and gold star is the highest paying symbol, followed by the purple and gold star, green and gold star and the blue and gold star. The lower value symbols are less striking stars which are simply purple, green and blue. All of the symbols enable the player to win both ways, with the exception of the Scatter. When you land a winning combination, watch out for the eye-catching animations on the reels which add an extra ‘wow’ factor to the game.

Starmania’s Wild symbol appears on the central 3 reels only and will substitute for all symbols except for the Scatter Bonus.

The main feature of Starmania is the Free Spins round. This will be triggered if you land 3 or more Scatter Bonus symbols on the reels; you will receive 10 Free Spins with up to 30 extra Stacked Wilds added to the reels. Furthermore, Free Spins can be retriggered, so if you’re lucky you’ll have a good chance of really boosting your winnings from this feature.

Lastly, Starmania offers a pretty standard gamble feature where your winnings can be doubled or quadrupled if you guess correctly the colour or suit of the next playing card to be revealed from a pack.

Verdict

Starmania is visually beautiful and designed really well. I found it to be really playable; simple but not tedious. Cosmic-themed games seem to be all the rage right now and if you’re a fan, be sure to try Star Dust by Microgaming and the brilliantly innovative Starburst by NetEnt.
