Take a top-notch software vendor, inject the sci-fi bug into it, throw in some bounty hunting for good measure and add some really cool game features; what you get is Star Bounty, the stunning new slot from Pragmatic Play! Read on for all the details about this outstanding new Pragmatic Play that comes with a 96.6% RTP.
Star Bounty gives you the feeling of being aboard a space station, and this totally reflects the intergalactic bounty hunting premise of the game. The backdrop is straight out of any of the timeless sci-fi blockbusters, with futuristic spaceships swirling past majestic buildings. The reel arrangement is also different, in the form of a hive instead of the standard frame.
This is a brand new slot that underlines the vendor’s ability to consistently deliver games of outstanding potential, be it in terms of graphics and animations or in-game features. The game has 6 reels instead of 5, and they are arranged in 4 rows instead of the usual 3.
There are male and female bounty hunters and 2 aliens, all forming the high-value symbols in the game along with 4 symbols that look like representations of spacecrafts and docking stations. The low value symbols are the J, Q, K and A.
The game has 2 wild symbols. The first of these is the WILD, and it substitutes all symbols except the FREE SPINS scatter symbol. This symbol appears on reels 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6.
The second wild is the Missile Wild, and it appears on reels 2, 3 and 4. You will usually find this popping up in the free spins bonus. When this symbol lands on the reels, it opens fire on the symbols on the grid at random, turning some of them wild. Both these wilds, when they appear in the bonus round, come armed with a multiplier of 2x or 3x to give you bigger wins.
Star Bounty looks great, has great features and also offers you the chance to win some cool rewards. This is thanks to a fairly wide bet range that allows you to place a minimum bet of 0.20 and a maximum of 100.00.
The maximum win in the base game is 1500 credits, and you win this by landing 5 male bounty hunter symbols on the reels.
The above win is relevant to the base game. You also have the free spins bonus round where multipliers, respins and additional free spins allow you to rake in a maximum of a whopping 25.920x your total wager. This is a theoretical possibility of course, and depends on your wager amount as well.
One of the cool elements in Star Bounty is the Tumble feature. This feature causes winning symbols to tumble and disappear out of the grid. This leaves empty slots for new symbols to come and fill in and give you more winnings combinations in a single spin.
The Tumble feature is operational until you run out of winning combinations; there is no specific limit to the number of Tumbles you could experience. Once the symbols stop tumbling out, the total wins are added to your bankroll.
The bonus game in Star Bounty is the free spins round. You trigger this by landing at least 3 FREE SPINS scatter symbols across the reels. The number of free spins you get depends on the number of scatter symbols you land – 1 free spins per scatter symbol you land.
In an interesting twist, the game has a special re-spin feature built into the beginning of the free spins bonus. During the re-spins, the scatter symbols that you landed to trigger the free spins bonus remain sticky on the reels and any new symbols you land are added to these. The respins come to an end once there are no more new scatter symbols added to the reels.
The total number of scatter symbols you have at the end of the respins feature determines the number of free spins you get. You cannot re-trigger the free spins bonus. You can trigger a maximum of 24 free spins at a time.
Star Bounty has a unique feature that enables you to ensure you land the free spins bonus. All you need to do is buy your free spins by paying 75x your current total bet. Once you complete the purchase the free spins round kicks in with a random number of free spins: the minimum is 3 and the maximum is 6.
You can win yourself a maximum of 35 free spins in this game.
