The 5 Star Knockout slot asks you to do one thing: collect as many stars scatters as you can in order to trigger the bonus games. Once you do you could win up to 4,500x your bet.
This style of slot game is not new, but mechanics don’t have to be new to be fun, they just have to be interesting to play, and that’s what you’ll find at Microgaming casinos with this 5 Star Knockout mobile slot.
The paytable is fairly classic. The 5 star is the highest-paid symbol, followed by red, silver, and blue 7s, and finally Clovers, Hearts, Spades, and Diamonds. In other words, this might look like a huge slot with 5×4 reels and 20 paylines, but it plays very similarly to a classic slot machine.
That’s because this 5 Star Knockout game has only one special symbol: the Star scatter. The more you collect, the closer you get to win big.
At the start of the game, you get a random number of scatters to fill random spots of the Star Meters. These sit below the reels, and each of the paytable symbols has a meter of 5 stars.
Fill any one of the meters with 5 stars as you play, and you’ll trigger 5 free spins for every meter you fill-up. Mostly you only get 5, but during the bonus games, that symbol is removed.
For every meter filled you’ll get +2 spins and that symbol will then also be removed. You could, potentially, play a bonus game where the only symbol left is the high-paying 5 Star symbol.
And, let’s not forget, that the 5 Star Knockout bonus has a random multiplier of 2x to 5x on each spin. That’s how you get the 5 Star Knockout slot top win of 4.500x bet.
The problem is that you could also end up with a bonus game where you only have low-paying symbols, meaning that it technically is richer reels, but not rich enough to pay off your patience.
Your patience is needed, mostly because this is a medium to high variance slot, and it takes time to collect all those scatters – and even then those scatters may not be collected to remove the symbols you want.
But that’s where the 5 Star Knockout online slot has a secret weapon – the win spins you’ll find in other mobile slot games such as the Pimped slot. In other words, randomly, you’ll get up to 3 spins where you might get 3 wins in a row.
It’s not enough to completely ease our impatience, but it helps keep you going until those stars show up to make your day.

Scatters, Star Meter, and Free Spins: The star is the scatter. When they land they will start filling up the star meter below the reels. Each of the paytable symbols has a star meter that you can fill - 5 stars fill up a star meter. If the award board is completely empty, before starting a spin the game will award you bonus stars to fill some of the spots, giving you a heads-up.
If you fill 1 or more star meters, you trigger the free spins. For every filled star meter filled, you'll get 5 free spins. Any subsequently filled star meters during the 5 Star Knockout slot bonus will add a +2 bonus.
Any filled meter removes that symbol from the reels, giving you progressively richer reels with fewer symbols. You can also get a random multiplier, up to 5x, on any bonus spin.
Win Spins: The win spins are respins triggered randomly. These are free respins that you get for as long as you get a win on the reels.
5 Star Knockout slot is a 5x4 reel game with 20 paylines and scatters that you collect to trigger the free spins and remove symbols from the reels. You can get a random 5x multiplier in the bonus and up to 4,500x your bet.
It's a fun little video slot with mechanics that will be familiar to people who have played the All-Star Knockout Ultra Gamble slot, with a similar RTP at 96.09%.
In other words, it's nothing new, but sometimes you don't want new, you want a way to play an old favourite but with different odds. You could do that with All-Stars and 5 Stars and barely notice the difference one to the other.
