Star Pops Slot Review

Based on its name, you’d think this slot has something to do with stars but you’d be wrong as it doesn’t. It does however deal with balloons that can explode to award huge prizes. Spin to find out more!

Starting with the visual aspect of the game, there isn’t a lot happening on the screen other than a cloud-filled sky which serves as the slot’s background. The enlarged reel set occupies most of the interface and at its left, you can find the game’s logo as well as the buy feature button. Moving upwards you’ll notice a separate series of balloons that indicate the active combo of each associated symbol.

Now, regarding the mechanics, you have to understand that due to its nature, this slot doesn’t operate like most conventional titles. That is, the symbols appear from the bottom and float to the top while winning combinations are destroyed and other symbols fill in the void that’s left behind.

Cluster-pays games have been slowly increasing in popularity over the last 5-6 years as they offer new and exciting mechanics combined with rewarding features. Some of the best ones would have to be NetEnt’s Aloha! Cluster Pays and Lost Relics. Make sure to give those a try when you have some spare time. For now, though, let’s get back to the game in question.

How to Play Star Pops

The game consists of 8 rows and 8 reels whereas winning clusters are formed by at least 5 horizontally or vertically adjacent matching symbols. The controls can be found near the playing grid allowing players to adjust the bet size, enable the autoplay function, mute the sounds, spin, buy a feature, or enter the in-game menu for further information and gameplay customization.

As for the bets, you can stake anywhere between $0.20 and $50 per spin. Star Pops is a high volatility title with a hit frequency of around 27% so your chances of landing big wins are very good. That said, the most you can win is about 14,000x while the return to the player is a very good 96.59%.

Star Pops features 6 paying symbols that come in the form of blue, orange, pink, green, yellow, and red balloons.

The slot’s special symbol is:

  • Wild – Represented by the rainbow star-shaped balloon, this symbol will substitute for all others. If 2 or more clusters share a wild, their individual multipliers will be combined to produce a new bigger one. For example, 3x and 4x will produce a 12x multiplier.

Game Rules

Star Pops Features

Due to the game’s nature, a high number of special features isn’t possible. Still, though, you can get pretty big wins even during the base game spins as large wins don’t hinge on bonus modes or features.

Star Wild Connectors

The rules of the star wild symbols are as such:

  • If it contributes to a win, it will float up to fill any spaces above as any other symbol.
  • If there isn’t an available position above it, it will float one position to the left or right.
  • The maximum value for a combined multiplier is 1,000x.

Destroy Feature

This feature may randomly trigger when there isn’t a win visible on the playing grid. One of the balloons is randomly selected to be destroyed. Acting as the center point, the selected symbol and all symbols diagonal to it, except for wilds, will be destroyed causing an additional float-up cascade to occur.

Free Spins

Having 3 wild stars on the grid at the same time will trigger the feature awarding 7 free spins. The 3 wilds will remain on the grid but change positions at the start of each spin. Symbol multipliers don’t reset between spins as they do during the base game. Also, symbol multipliers that exist on the triggering spin carry over to the free spins round. The bonus mode may also be purchased at the cost of 100x the current stake level with a feature RTP of 96.52%.
