Time to head to the stars where you’ll be chasing your bounty by tracking down criminals and throwing missiles on the reels in this Star Bounty slot.
There is something wonderfully epic about this Star Bounty mobile slot. You are inside your spaceship, looking out through a window to a vast spaceport, and spinning 6 reels of hexagonal reels and 4 rows of symbols.
The characters, or crew members, are the highest-paid symbols of the paytable, followed by Alien Symbols and then Ace to J symbols because even in space people still play cards.
In short, this looks beautiful and has plenty of little animations and sounds that make playing 4096 ways to win slot machine a whole load of fun, not unlike the Ninja Ways slot game (for example).
Despite the fact that you get lots of little wins in the base game you have to accept that most of those wins won’t be enough to cover your bet, because you’ll be getting 3 or 4 of a kind wins at best.
The good news is that the 5 and 6 of a kind wins are generous. Get a 6 of a kind win with the space ranger and you automatically get 150x your bet. Get him on all the ways to wins, and you’ll win 61,440x your bet.
And sure, as the symbols don’t come stacks the odds of that happening are pretty low, but not impossible. Something near or half that number is within range, especially when you consider you have to two types of wilds.
One wild lands on reels 2 to 6 and replaces other symbols in a win. But the Missile wild on reels 3 to 5 will burst out and spread around it, giving you a cluster of wilds and (more than likely) a cluster of wins.
Usually, in very volatile slot machines, you end up having to wait for a bonus feature to get the really big wins. That’s not as true with this Star Bounty slot machine, mostly because the paytable is generous enough as it is and all the main features can be captured in the base game.
But the Star Bounty free spins do give you a little extra advantage. For one, just because you capture the free spins using 3 to 5 scatters, doesn’t mean you’ll only play 3 to 5 spins. You get a chance to capture more in a mini-game before the bonus spins even begin – up to 26 free spins in fact.
For two, those missile wilds now come with a multiplier ranging from 2x to 3x, and getting a cluster of those bad boys could see you win over 1,000x your bet, even with the mid-range symbols.
The free spins don’t come quite as often as we like, or as often as in the 2 Gods Zeus Vs Thor slot review, but when it does it tends to bring with it all the thrill of chasing a bounty through space. And isn’t that what you want from a casino game?

Wilds: The gem is the wild symbol and substitutes for all symbols except the scatter free spin. It only appears on reels 2 to 6.
Tumble Feature: This is another word for a cascading reels slot. In short, when you get a win the winning symbols will explode and disappear and more symbols will then tumble down. Tumbling will continue until no more winning combinations are possible.
Missile Feature: The Missile wild symbol can land on reels 2, 3 and 4. It fires a random number of symbols turning them into wilds. During the free spins these shoot out wilds with 2x or 3x multipliers.
Scatters and Free Spins: Hit 3 or more free spin symbols in the base game to trigger the free spins feature. First, you get one free spin per scatter symbol. Then you play a game where all the reels randomly spin, and if more free spin symbols land on the reels, you get +1 free spins. The maximum number you can catch is 24 free spins.
At this point, the free spins begin and you get multipliers on the missile feature.
Considering the volatility of this Star Bounty slot on mobile, we would expect this game to be a little slow. Having those individually spinning symbols help to give these 4096 ways to win lots of animation, even if it takes a while to hit the free spins.
We like the two types of wilds, and we love how you usually get far more free spins than expected and some multipliers to make it worth your while.
It is a very volatile game, so be careful with your budget and don't get carried away with all the avalanching wins, but with some fantastic 5 of a kind wins, this has a good enough paytable to keep you on board this spaceship.
