While it may not have been wildly popular, Starscape was a futuristic television show back in the 1980s. It didn't last very long, but it was around long enough to inspire Microgaming game developers to design a video slot around it. While the game doesn't offer much in the way of references to the show's characters or storylines, Starscape, the video slot, still takes players on a jackpot seeking adventure through the galaxy.
Starscape's gaming format comes with 5 reels and 25 pay lines. The game's betting range falls between $.01 and $250.00 based on 1 to 10 coins with a coin value ranging between $.01 per pay line up to a maximum of $1.00 per pay line. High rollers might prefer other games that provide better returns for a little more risk.
The graphics on this game are pretty decent, though the game's video and audio features leave a lot to be desired. Standard low-paying symbols are represented by playing card icons, ranging from 9 through the Ace, plus planetary symbols like a comet, the sun, Saturn, a green planet and the moon.
The "Starscape" game logo service as the game's wild symbol, which subs for all other symbols with the exception of the scatter symbol. A spaceship serves as the game's scatter symbol. If the player hits a win with a wild involved, the winning amount is doubled. If the player lands five wild symbols, they win the game's largest jackpot of 7,000 coins.
If the player lands three or more spaceship scatters, they earn the chance to play an interactive bonus game. The objective of the game is to keep choosing spots from a matrix until four like symbols are exposed, resulting in a corresponding prize. Should the player uncover the multiplier while making their selections, their overall winnings from the bonus game are increased by the value of said multiplier. It's worth noting this game comes without the chance for free spins.
Verdict: All things considered, Starscape has limited appeal. The lack of a free spins feature is going to be a big drawback for players who enjoy getting something for free. Also, the fact the game offers rather low payouts isn't going to do much to endear it to experienced players and high rollers. Aside from the colorful, clear graphics, there really isn't much of a reason to recommend this game to anyone other than beginners who can use it as a training ground for better offerings.
