Star Crystals: A New Australian Pokie
An Australian pokie that has caught a lot of attention is none other than Star Crystals. It was brought to the online pokie community through Genesis Games and it’s got some great entertainment value. Set inside a deep and far off galaxy, you are in charge of keeping the space crystals safe. This pokie really breaks away from the typical design, but is it more than just a nice looking game?
When we said this isn’t a typical design, we meant it. There are no reel borders, which fits nicely with the outer space theme. In fact, Sci-Fi fans will really enjoy this pokie. The sounds are very futuristic, clear and crisp, while the animations are colorful and constantly on the move. In general design Genesis Games receives an A+. It can honestly be said that this pokie is loads of fun to play.
Now, let’s look at the technical aspects. This is a 5 reel pokie which is based on the 243 ways to win concept. It also features several other goodies such as bonus games and multipliers. The multipliers are triggered randomly before a spin starts and it can range between x2;x3;x4 and x5. These are known as Wild Multipliers. The Robot Wilds on the other hand can be randomly triggered at the end of every spin. If you’re lucky enough you’ll get three of these robot symbols and re-trigger it up to three times in one turn.
The Bonus round is called the Credit Pick. Even though you’d expect a flashy bonus round given the overall design, it’s pretty basic. All you have to do is choose one of three atom shaped symbols, which will then reveal a prize. For the most part the difference in prizes are relatively small and you have a better chance of triggering this random bonus round compared to Wild Multipliers and the Robot Wild.
To end things off, you can trigger the Free Spin mode by getting three Scatter symbols, which are also represented by atoms. You only get 8 free spins, but to sweeten the deal it’s possible to re-trigger it in addition to having your winnings within these rounds multiplied by two.
Currently the RTP is 95.38%, but don’t expect the biggest cash rewards. In fact, Star Crystals isn’t really unique when it comes to big or frequent payouts. You can expect the same from most other pokies. On the plus side, it’s definitely one of the more fun pokies around and can possibly become a crowd favorite.
