Hyper Star™ Slots Review
A 2021 slots creation by Gameburger Studios exclusively for Microgaming, Hyper Star™ is easy to love. It's fun. It's glitzy. It’s old-school – and swimming in all kinds of bonus prize potential, too. Its theme? Classic casino. Its features? Up-to-the-minute. Way wins, static jackpots, a Multiplier trail, a Free Spins bonus, iconic symbol pays: you name it, this game’s got it.
A flagship online and mobile casino games brand, Microgaming knows how to impress. Their graphics are insane. Their themes are on-point. Their game mechanics push boundaries. And they give exclusive game developers like Gameburger Studios an award-winning platform to shine on.
Our ride or die since day one, Microgaming supplies most of the games at Royal Vegas Online Casino Canada. Made famous by their internationally celebrated slots, Microgaming creates other casino games too. But that's a different story for another day. Today, it's all about Hyper Star™.
Graphics & Symbols
The kicker? All. The. Sparkle. Hyper Star™ has some of the most dazzling slot graphics we’ve come across. But not in an overbearing way. We've already mentioned how classic iconography rules the reels here. But it's the way they're presented that brings them to life. Expect 3D-style glitter icons with lots of razzle dazzle. It is Vegas, after all!
Symbols include a star Wild, which acts as a substitute and only appears on reels 2, 3 and 4. Besides its usual function, the Wild in Hyper Star™ is also key to triggering the Jackpot Bonus. We'll explain how in a moment.
Then there's the Free Spins bonus symbol. Three of these is key to triggering up to 36 Free Spins.
You'll also find high value symbols: 7s, dollars, bells, casino chips, dice, and cherries. Wrapping things up are the low value icons: faceted spade, heart, diamond, and club icons.
Rolling Reels™ & Multipliers
A familiar feature in many Microgaming slots, Rolling Reels™ offers extra win potential. Every time a winning combination hits, winning symbols explode. This leaves a few empty spaces on the reels. Rolling Reels™ fills those spaces with new random symbols, creating more win potential.
Plus, the more wins that trigger, the higher the Multiplier Trail grows. A Rolling Reels™ add-on, the Multiplier Trail can award wins of up to 5x.
Free Spins Feature
Also featuring a Multiplier Trail is the Free Spins bonus in Hyper Star™. The bonus round, triggered by 3 or more Free Spins bonus symbols, awards between 8 and 32 spins. Unlike the Multiplier Trail in the base game, the Free Spins Multiplier Trail reaches up to 15x.
Free Spins can retrigger, but only if 3 more Free Spins bonus symbols appear during the feature. Here, 8 Free Spins activate for each way, left or right, depending on where your triggering symbols are.
Grand, Major & Minor Jackpots
A juicy addition to any slots game is a fixed jackpot prize. The one in Hyper Star™ has 3 fixed jackpot amounts that can trigger during the base game and Free Spins. How does the Jackpot Bonus activate? That's where the star Wilds come in.
Besides substituting for other symbols in the game, all Wild symbols collect in a Star Pot. The more Wilds you collect, the higher the chance of the random Jackpot Bonus triggering.
What amounts can you win? The fixed values on the slots screen. Again, the Jackpot Bonus awards at random. This means you could get either one of the Grand, Major or Minor prizes.
Bet Sizes & Settings
Fully customisable, Hyper Star™ features adjustable bet sizes and other settings. You can use these to personalise how you play, changing up bet sizes and more as you go. Bets range from 0.20 to 40 credits a spin, while the game launches on the default bet size of 2 credits. For a shot at the max win potential of 293,720 credits, you’ll need to play on max bet.
