Starlight Riches Slot Review

I’m no conspiracy theorist, but there are a couple of quirky ideas I believe in. Now, don’t get me wrong, the whole Flat Earther/Q-Anon/Pizza Gate stuff isn’t for me, but I dabble in a few conspiracy theories just for the fun of it.

And one of them is my eternal belief in aliens. I don’t think we’re hiding them at Area 51 or whatever, but I find it difficult to believe that we’re entirely alone in an infinite universe.

It just doesn’t make sense. I mean, sure, earth is set-up exactly right to sustain life (and it took us long enough to progress past the whole single-cell organism shtick), but surely there are other civilizations out there?

So, it’s with those nerdy impulses in mind that I take a closer look at Starlight Riches slot from Booming Games – has this game provider found proof of life outside of our little galactic bubble?

Gameplay

“No,” would be the answer to that question. Unfortunately for the rest of the UFO-fundies, Starlight Riches slot is pretty much just a basic fruit game – sigh.

It’s a sad day when a good name is wasted on a mediocre theme, but I guess we’re just going to have to roll with the punches here. The only thing vaguely extra-terrestrial about this game is the background, which is set amongst the stars.

Other than that, it’s just your standard fruit slot – although it does look pretty good on a mobile phone (in portrait mode) thanks to the fact that it’s built using HTML5 software.

The stats are alright, although a sub-96% RTP is never ideal (we’re talking 95.50% for Starlight Riches slot). This game has a high volatility rate, so you’re looking at bigger wins (less frequently), and a multiplier of 1,602x your bet.

The max win comes in at a very respectable €240,300, however you’ll need to bet €150 to score that. With that said, you can also start betting from €0.10 in the currency of your choice.

Features

WILD

The Star Wild can substitute for all symbols except the Scatter.

WILD MULTIPLIER REEL

This reel is in play at all times, during both the base game and Free Spins round. The fifth reel is made up entirely of Wilds, which have multipliers of up to 50x attached.

FREE SPINS

Landing 3 or 4 Diamond Scatters will trigger 3 or 7 Free Spins respectively.

Performance

I was expecting some element of futuristic gameplay, but Starlight Riches slot is pretty simple. However, that simplicity means that any glitching or buffering issues are non-existent, so you can expect seamless betting at all times.

Play on your mobile or desktop, and the browser of your choice, without worrying about the game crashing.

Maximum Win

Considering the multiplier, you’re already aware that in order to win the €240,300 max win you need to bet €150 per spin. That’s not viable for a lot of players, and can limit your wins.

Conclusion

Listen, I had some pretty high hopes when I first saw the title of this slot – you could say, I was hoping that Booming would “reach for the stars.”

But this really is just another fruit game. Starlight Riches slot may hint at intergalactic adventures, but it’s pretty down to earth in terms of gameplay (yeah, sorry about all the puns here).

With that said, I enjoyed it. The few features available are solid, and the multiplier Wild reel offers some great win potential.
