There is a golden ‘Wild’ symbol; it will substitute for all of the other symbols, except for the scatter symbol, to help and form winning combinations.
The scatter symbol is a computerised view of a planet and it is key to two bonus features.
The Plunder Bonus begins if you land the scatter symbol on reels one and five simultaneously. You need to pick one of the scatter symbols to either plunder a cash prize or turn an exile symbol wild on reels two to five in your next free spins bonus. Furthermore, turning symbols wild in the Plunder Bonus adds emeralds to the reels and emeralds award a cash prize whenever they land.
If you land the scatter symbol on reels one, three and five the Starmada Exiles Free Games bonus begins. You win ten free spins and they are played with the upgraded exile symbols from the Plunder Bonus. Furthermore, during the free spins ruby symbols can land on the fifth reel and if you collect three of them it will turn another exile symbol wild. If you land more scatters then you will win ten more free spins. Once the free spins are over, any emerald symbols from the Plunder Bonus are replaced by scatter symbols on the reels, making it easier to trigger the bonus again.
Starmada Exiles offers a top payout of 1,500x for landing five of the pirate captain symbols along a payline. The woman pirate can payout up to 1,000x, the male pirate up to 700x, and the robot pirate up to 500x. The treasure chest can payout up to 300x, the beer mug up to 200x, and the compass, gun and telescope can all payout up to 150x.
