The Starz Megaways slot game can be found at casinos offering Pragmatic Play software. Pragmatic Play are one of the newer slots game developers on the market but their products are polished and professional in feel and operation. As a standard Pragmatic Play do publish the RTP/House Edge information for their slots games within their game help file. For a provider that are not currently licensed within the UK market and therefore are under no obligation to publish these figures this is a significantly progressive move. The House Edge for Starz Megaways is 3.53%.
Starz Megaways is a 6 reel game and each reel can vary in height, from 2 symbols per reel to 7 symbols per reel. The slot does not use paylines, instead you form winning combinations of 3 or more symbols across adjacent reels. There is no set number of winways, or in this case Megaways per spin but the maximum number available is 117,649.
Tumble feature – After every winning combination, those symbols will disappear from the reels and new symbols will drop down in their place, giving you another chance to win. If you do win again, the process will continue and will keep doing so until a new tumble fails to result in a winning combination. Symbols that are added during a tumble will always be the same size as those that disappeared.
The Starz mentioned in the title of this slot should be enough to tell you that this has a space theme. Planets and Gems make up the bulk of the symbols, with a sun and a star thrown in for good measure.
Wild – The Wild symbol is the “Star”, which will substitute for all symbols other than the Scatter. Wild symbols will only appear on the top row above reels 2-5. Whenever a Wild symbol hits in the base game it will expand to fill the reel it lands on.
Scatter – The Scatter symbol is the “Sun”, which will trigger the Free Spins feature if you can land 3 or more of them on a single spin. When 3 or more of the Scatter symbols land on the reels they will stick in place and you will be given a respin and essentially a chance to win more Free Spins.
Free Spins – 3, 4, 5 or 6 Scatter symbol will award 6, 8, 10 or 15 Free Spins. During the feature Wilds will expand to fill which ever reel they land on and will remain stuck in place for the remainder of the feature. The feature cannot be retriggered.
