NetEnt was one of the earliest providers of online slot games. Starting back in 1996. And because of this, they have some of the most recognizable characters in slots. Gonzo, the star from Starburst and the sheriff from Dead or Alive.
In 2022 NetEnt combined some of their most famous characters into one slot game, Superstars.
The game uses 5 reels that are each 5 symbols high and comes with 45 lines.
Besides standard card symbols you will also find five characters and wild symbols, which can appear stacked on all reels. The game also features scatter symbols, which are diamonds. And a dice symbol on reel 5, which also counts as a scatter symbol.
Get 3 or more scatter symbols to trigger the bonus feature.
Each scatter triggering the bonus will be converted into a multiplier symbol that becomes sticky on the reels. If you triggered the bonus feature with the dice symbol, this will also be converted into a multiplier symbol, but will also award you a dice roll.
Around the reels you will find a board with empty spots and special bonus spots.
You will get 3 respins. The reels will spin and can only land multiplier symbols or dice symbols. When one or more of these symbols land, the respins are reset.
When dice symbols land you will throw them and move around the board. Landing on a special symbol will award a bonus:
If you manage to fill all the reels with multiplier symbols you will trigger the final game.
The board will now have multipliers worth 25x, 50x, 75x, 100x, 500x and 1.000x. You will get the same dice as scatters triggering the feature and you can now roll them to get the multipliers on the board.
So the bonus ends when you run out of respins or when you played the final game.
If possible, you are able to buy the bonus feature for 150 times your bet.
The game is very recognizable for players that know the original games the characters are from. But even if you don’t know any of the characters, the game looks great and is a lot of fun.
Except the base game, which can become a bit boring after a while.
The bonus feature is however a lot of fun. Which is of course a take on the classic Hold & Spin bonuses you see a lot. But with enough added bonuses and modifiers to keep it interesting.
Overall Superstars is a decent game and a nice trip down memory lane.
