We are heading on a journey to the outer regions of our universe as we play Microgaming's fabulous slot game, Star Dust.  Star Dust is a science fiction retro slot game which has five reels and forty paylines.  As well as forty paylines Star Dust also has some great additions to help make you win including a gem collection feature and a Radiant Respins feature.

Our Verdict:

Star Dust is definitely a retro designed slot game, with the look and feel both like something you would have found in a 90's arcade.  As you load the slot game, you will see a dark blackish purple backdrop to the reels, with stars and planets off in the distance. This sets the scene nicely, and the smooth sound effects compliment the look well.  As you spin, you will also find the gameplay is smooth and fast moving, with the gem collection feature a very nice added extra as it can help you earn some big wins and is definitely worth the wait.

How to Play:

Star Dust is a slot game which has five reels which dominate the screen.  It also has three rows and forty paylines.  Before you start to spin on Star Dust, you will want to select your stake per spin, which can start out as little as 40p a spin up to a maximum of £100.  Once you select your stake, you can start to spin and to win you will need to land three, four or five of the same symbol in a single payline.  This will create the win. However, the win amount will depend on the symbol making up the combination and how much your stake was.

Wild Symbol:

On Star Dust, you have a wild symbol which is the Star Dust logo itself.  This wild symbol is a special symbol as is going to substitute for all other symbols on the reels including the scatter galaxy symbol, the gem symbols (orange, green, blue and yellow) and the playing card symbols of 10, J, Q, K and A.  By substituting for these symbols the wild can help to complete winning combinations.  The logo wild symbol will also produce its own wins when three or more land on a payline, however, if you land five wild logos you will have won the jackpot with a big prize coming your way.

Gem Free Spins:

At the side of the reels you will see a meter on the right.  This meter will increase as you collect gems, which is done when a galaxy scatter symbol lands on reel three.  It will then collect gems from all other reels. Once the meter is full, you will receive a win and up to thirteen free spins. Once your free spins start your reel structure will change to 1024 ways to win structure allowing for wins for matching symbols on adjacent reels.  The Radiant Respins feature also comes into play awarding a re-spin for either reel four or five for a three or four symbol win.
