Pragmatic Play Unveils Star Bounty
Renowned iGaming software developer Pragmatic Play recently launched its latest sci-fi slot, titled Star Bounty. The game takes the protagonist on an intergalactic adventure with a motivated team of space pirates looking to score a massive bounty.
The game utilizes advanced graphics and soundtracks to further heighten the gameplay, which includes some serious high-flying weaponry from the future! Star Bounty follows a 6-reel 4-row format with a hexagonal-shape grid complete with Wild Multipliers, Tumbles, and free spins. The high-volatile game offers 4,096 ways to win while the highest payout is worth 25,920x the total stake.
Bonus, Stakes, and Payouts
The game features an array of card symbols from A to J, four characters, and four insignias. The symbols resemble the scary-looking necromancers from Chronicles of Riddick. The male and female hunters are the two most valuable in-game characters. Landing six male symbols trigger 15x the total stake, while three female logos activate between 5x and 10x the current stake.
But the game’s most interesting feature is undoubtedly Tumbling wins. These ensure the spins are long-lasting while random missiles fire at reels 2, 3, and 4 replacing standard symbols with Wilds, triggering 2x and 3x wins in the process. Before triggering the Extra spins, however, a special Respin activates, offering players the chance to amplify their wins.
Landing an Extra Spin in the process retriggers Respin, and the cycle continues. Star Bounty has a respectable 96.6% RTP in default mode while buy-ins range between €0.20 and €100 per spin. Despite being highly volatile, the game is surprisingly well-balanced. And free spins trigger more often than expected.
Features and Other Highlights
Star Bounty offers an entire host of features. The atom is the in-game scatter and landing three consecutive scatters unleashes free spins. When no new scatters land, the total value is added, which can be as high as 24x the current stake. Landing more than one wild combines the values, offering up to 75x the total stakes. Selecting feature buy guarantees three to six free spin scatter symbols with the next spin.
Star Bounty is an interesting game, and Pragmatic Play has done a great job of combining excellent graphics with immersive gameplay. Although the reel arrangement isn’t conventional, it gels well with the game’s features. While veterans might argue the game doesn’t offer much in terms of novelty, Star Bounty manages to accomplish what the creator’s set out for quite well.
According to Pragmatic Play, Star Bounty’s futuristic theme was designed to complement the lucrative bonus rounds and the unique reel. The game has every ingredient required for success, and the makers are betting big.
In related news, Pragmatic Play recently announced the official unveil of Blackjack Azure and Roulette to its existing portfolio of live casino games. The creators launched eight new Blackjack Azure tables and two high-stake tables last week. The two key features include Auto-Stand and Deal Now. The games are available on multiple platforms, including smartphones and the desktop.
