We are off on a journey to the outer reaches of our galaxy as we head into space to spin the reels of NextGen Gaming's video slot, Starmania.  Starmania is a space themed slot game with lots of personality and colour and more importantly with a great free spins bonus feature and a gamble feature to try to double or quadruple any wins.

Our Verdict:

As you load up Starmania you will instantly see the twinkling stars in the night space sky which make up the background on which the reels sit.  This helps to set the scene for the game, and the reels themselves are transparent and the symbols just sit against the night sky, which creates a nice effect.  As you spin you will also enjoy the smooth sound effect, however, trigger the free spins and you will hopefully win some big prizes.

How to Play:

Starmania is a five-reel slot game which has three rows and ten paylines.  On Starmania the paylines are fixed paylines, which means no need to worry about selecting how many to be active, however, you will need to select your stake per spin of between 10p and £20.  Once you select your stake, you are ready to start to spin, and if you are lucky enough to land three or more of the same symbol on a payline, you will have created a win.  The payout for that win will depend on the value of the symbol, how many land and what your stake per spin is.

Wild Symbol:

On Starmania you have a wild symbol, which in this instance is a symbol with the word "wild" in big gold writing.  This symbol will only appear on reels two, three or four, however, it is a special symbol as it will help to complete winning combinations by substituting for all symbols except the scatter bonus symbol.  The gold wild symbol can also produce its own winning combinations when three or more land on a payline.

Free Spins:

The free spins bonus is the only bonus game on Starmania.  To trigger this feature, you will need to land three or more of the bonus scatter symbol – symbol with the word "bonus" on it – anywhere across the reels.  You will receive ten free spins which will start automatically.  During the free spins, additional wilds will be added to reels two, three and four.  This will mean by the time you get to your tenth free spin you will have an additional 30 wilds on the reels.  You can also re-trigger this feature by landing three more scatter symbols in a single spin during your free spins.

Gamble Feature:

After each win on Starmania you can choose to risk the win by choosing to gamble the payout with the chance to double or quadruple the amount won.  To double it just guess the colour of an unturned playing card and to quadruple it just guess the suit.  You can gamble your win a maximum of five times in a row.
