Stellar Spins Slot Review
I’m absolutely terrified of the idea of space - in fact, I don’t really like thinking about it at all. It just makes me feel far too insignificant, like my stupid choices don’t matter (which, to be honest, they definitely don’t). The grand scheme of things? More like, “let me never think about anything bigger than what is going on, on this earth so that I don’t fall into a black hole of existential dread.” Oh god. I said “black hole.” Well here I go I guess - that’ll be two weeks of thinking about the universe, sitting in a dark room and rocking back and forth.
Stellar Spins is a 5-reel, 10-payline video slot powered by software from Booming Games. Don’t like thinking about the vacuum of space? Maybe don’t play this one! Symbols include 3 lucky 7s in varying galaxy-themed colors, and sparkly diamonds (as in the stone), hearts, more diamonds (as in the suit), clubs, and spades. The Wild is represented by “WILD” over a star, a gold star with arrows on it is the 2-way pay triggering symbol, and “FREE SPINS” over a swirling dark vortex is the Scatter.
Controls are pretty straightforward but let’s go over them. Below the reels you’ll find Paylines, Info, Lines, Total Bet +/-, Auto Play, Spin, Bet Max, Balance, Music, Sound Effects, and Full Screen.
So, what features can you expect from Stellar Spins? Wild: The Wild symbol substitutes for all other symbols except the Scatter symbol, and Special symbols.
There are quite a few unique features here (to keep you distracted from that ever looming sense of doom thanks to the space theme).
Free Spins: 3 Scatter symbols anywhere on the game board trigger 8 Free Spins.
2-Way Pay: Getting 1 Special symbols on the gameboard activates the 2-Way Pay feature. For the next 10 spins winnings are counted on active paylines from both left to right, and right to left. Getting matching symbols in a row on an active payline across all reels is counted both ways. If you get 1 Special symbol during 2-Way Pay, 10 additional 2-Way Pay spins will be added to your current 2-Way Pay spins. Getting 3 Scatter symbols anywhere during 2-Way Pay immediately gets you 8 Free Spins, during which your 2-Way Pay Spins are put on hold.
Expanding symbols: 3 Scatter symbols trigger 8 Free Spins when they appear anywhere on the gameboard and activate the Expanding Symbol feature. Before Free Spins begin, hit stop to randomly designate which symbol will be the Expanding Symbol for the Free Spins, excluding Wild, Scatter and Special symbols.
Stacked Wilds: Stacked Wilds are Wild symbols that land in stacks of 3, which can appear partially or completely on reels. Stacked Wilds can only land on reel 3.
This slot is really aesthetically pleasing (minus the existential dread), and the soundtrack is very, um, space-esque. Overall, it’s fairly pleasant to play (which you can do on desktop, tablet, and mobile!).
The max coin win is 25,000.
The universe might be utterly terrifying, but Stellar Spins did a pretty good job of calming my racing heart. It boasts fantastic features, loads of big wins, and genuinely beautiful graphics. Overall, another amazing effort from Booming Games!
