Betting Options and Bonus Features
After the extremely popular release of Gates of Olympus, Pragmatic Play re-released the game with an anime-styled artwork. Starlight Princess has the completely same engine as Gates of Olympus so if you know the rules, feel free to jump right in action.
For newcomers though, Starlight Princess is a 6x5 tumbling slot with Ante Bet and Pay Anywhere features. You might have seen these in other Pragmatic’s games like Sweet Bonanza. The Ante Bet is an option that can be activated at any point and will increase your bet size by 25%. In return, the game is enhanced with additional scatter symbols and your chance of triggering the bonus game is doubled.
Winning in Starlight Princess is done through the Pay Anywhere mechanic that replaces regular paylines. Instead of connecting symbols in a single line, you collect rewards by landing 8 or more matching symbols.
This will trigger the Tumble feature, which will remove your winning symbols from the reels. These symbols will then be replaced by new/existing symbols falling from above. The feature can repeat indefinitely so long as you keep landing winning combinations.
In the base game, your combos are furthermore enhanced by winged multipliers. These symbols can randomly land anywhere on the reels and possess a value between 5x to 500x. Landing multiple multipliers adds them together and boosts any winning combination you obtain during that spin.
The bonus round is triggered by collecting 4, 5, or 6 scatter symbols. This will immediately reward you with 3x, 5x, and 100x respectively, and add 15 free spins to your game. During the free spins bonus game, any multiplier landed is collected in your multiplier meter. Each new multiplier value is added to your meter and also used to multiply your win.
Landing 3 additional scatters during the free spins round will extend your bonus game by 5 free spins and you can win up to 5,000x your bet. If, however, you’d like to skip the base game and get to the free spins round immediately, you can purchase the bonus buy feature for 100x your stake.
The anime aesthetic might not be for everyone but love it or hate it, the game pays well. Don’t rule this one out just yet. It’s an obvious Gate of Olympus clone with completely identical mechanics. So, If I had to choose one I’d go for Gates of Olympus but to be honest I prefer the one that pays me the most.
