Microgaming’s Stardust online slot is an attempt to revive the interest of the gambling community in the subject of gems. The game was released in 2015. The name of the machine echoes the 2007 fantasy film “Stardust”, but nothing in common with the plot picture at the video slot. The machine’s strengths include original bonus features and the opportunity to win 100,000 credits in casino currency.
Immediately after the release of the slot, slot fans tried to blame Microgaming for plagiarism by comparing the latest release to the Starburst from NetEnt which was released 3 years earlier. The names of the slots are close to the degree of mixing, their themes are the same, similar symbols are used. However, the developers from Microgaming used a non-traditional 5×4 grid of the playing field and variable number of winning combinations. The standard game uses 40 fixed lines.
The machine has a wide betting range. The value of a coin varies from 0.01 to 0.25 credits, the player can put 1 to 10 coins per line. Thus, the total cost of rotation ranges from 0.4 to 100 monetary units in casino currency.
For those who do not want to risk money, there is a demo version and the opportunity to play StarDust for free and without registration. The amount of virtual credits in the trial mode is 100,000 units.
The return rate (RTP) is 96.59%. Features of the machine include Radiant Respin and Super Stacked Wilds additional options. The prize combinations are made up of three or more of the same symbols from the leftmost reel. There is no jackpot in the machine.
