Head into outer space and you'll meet a host of friendly aliens that want to help you achieve some huge wins. Thanks to some help from extra-large symbols, free re-spins and symbols that become scatters, you could return from space with some massive payouts.
Stars Awakening is a Playtech slot with 5 reels, 3 rows and 20 fixed paylines. The reels are set against a view of outer space and the high value symbols are different colour planets while the low value symbols are various aliens.
The wild symbol is a blue planet with the word ‘Wild' across it. It can substitute for all symbols, including the planet scatters, to help and form winning combinations. Furthermore, it can land stacked on all the reels.
There is no fixed scatter symbol in Stars Awakening. Rather symbols are converted to scatters after a winning spin. After a win lands on the reels you receive a free re-spin during which the purple planet acts as a scatter. If this produces a win then you receive another free re-spin during which the purple, blue and green planets behave as scatter symbols. If this produces yet another win then you receive a free re-spin during which all five planets (purple, blue, green, yellow and red) act as scatters. These scatters will payout their paytable values multiplied by the number of times the symbol appears on each reel.
In addition to the scatter symbols bonus feature, the slot also has a Giant Reel feature that can help you to form five of a kind combinations. All the high value planet symbols can land in giant versions on the third, fourth and fifth reel. The giant symbols occupy 3x3 positions on the reels and when they land it becomes considerably easier to form five symbol combinations.
Furthermore, it is not only the planet symbols that can land as giant versions, the wild can also land as a 3x3 symbol and this is a huge help in forming wins. Best of all, the giant symbols can land randomly on any spin in the base game.
Stars Awakening offers a huge top payout of 500x for landing five of the red planet symbols across a payline. The other planets can also reward you with huge payouts, the yellow planet can payout up to 300x while the green, blue and purple planets can all payout up to 100x. You could also win even bigger payouts by landing more than five of a particular symbol during the scatter free re-spins.
