ELK Studios has released a new online slot game, Stars of Orion.
This game is based on one of the most popular constellations, Orion.
Stars of Orion uses a grid which is 6 reels wide and 8 symbols high. The game uses cluster pays, any combination of 5 or more of the same symbols connected anywhere on the reels is a winning combination.
Winning combinations are removed and all symbols fall down why new ones are added on top. Giving the option for more wins during the same spin.
Stars of Orion comes with a lot of bonuses.
Any symbol may have a blue frame around it, which makes it a Super Symbol. When one or more Super Symbols are uses in a winning combination, if they are connected with other winning clusters, they all change into the Super Symbol symbol.
All winning symbols are collected and fill a meter on the right of the grid. This grid will trigger multipliers and bonuses each time you reach certain points. The multipliers are x2, x4, x8, x16, x32 and x64. The bonuses are:
- Symbol Swap – switches adjacent symbols to create winning clusters
- Orion’s Belt – extra drop with 3 wild symbols
- Orion’s Club – extra drop with 6 wild symbols
- Orion’s Shield – extra drop with 8 wild symbols
- Orion – extra drop with 13 wild symbols forming Orion (the shape, earlier bonuses will show part of the total shape)
Three or more bonus symbols will trigger 10 free drops. During free drops the Magic Meter does not reset between spins.
You can also trigger Super Free Drops by getting 3 or more Super Bonus Symbols. This will do the same as above, but now more Super Symbols appear.
ELK Studios has more of these type of grid games. Games like Cygnus, IO and Bompers.
They are always a bit hard to explain, but I hope I have done pretty good above.
I like these games, they are different from most other slot games and have some great bonuses and features. And are all high volatile, which can result in some huge wins. But can also be tricky.
