Fruit Filled Fun
The reels in Extra Stars come jam-packed with fruity goodness. This is one occasion when you will definitely want to be getting your five a day, as matching five of the same symbol pays the best prizes. You will also earn for three and four matches too.
For the minimum bet of 1 credit, the Lemons and Cherries – which occupy the bottom rung of the pay ladder – earn 10 coins, 20 coins and 100 coins for matching three, four and five symbols respectively. And then there are the Oranges and the Plums, and these juicy symbols reward players with 10 coins, 30 coins and 150 coins for three through to five.
The penultimate fruity prizes come in the shape of the Grapes and the Melon, and these will deliver 20 coins for matching three on a payline, 50 coins for four and 200 coins for the full set of five. But at the top of the food chain is the Banana, and this won’t cause any slip ups on your reels as it pays 50 coins, 200 coins and 500 coins respectively.
But the granddaddy of them all in Extra Stars is the lucky Number Seven, and this pays the grandest of the main game prizes. These are 100 coins for a treble, 500 coins for a quadruple and a huge 1,000 coins for a quintuple.
For any players that like to take a chance or two they will be delighted to hear that Extra Stars also incorporates a Gamble feature for those who are unsatisfied with their winnings. Just click the gamble button after any win of less than 350 coins, and if you can correctly guess the outcome of an upturned playing card – either red or black – then you will prize will be doubled.
There is a wild symbol in Extra Stars and that’s the shining Star. This will appear on your middle three reels (two, three and four), and will offer the beautiful advantage of substituting for all other symbols and turning your whole reel wild wherever it lands.
It will even trigger a respin of all your other reels too to help contribute some unexpected winning combinations. Basically, this is a Star by name and a star by nature.
But the fun doesn’t end there in Extra Stars. EGT incorporate their exceptional Jackpot Cards feature into the vast majority of their games, and with good reason too. It’s a bit of a game changer.
First things first, you don’t need to do anything specific to trigger this bonus game. You can stake 1 coin or 200 coins, it really doesn’t matter, and you don’t even need to spin any specific combination of symbols either to make it happen. There aren’t many special features that don’t have a minimum requirement to trigger it.
You’ll now be playing for one of four progressive jackpots linked to a suit of a playing card, and you can see these amounts at the top of your screen. The idea is to pick cards from a field of 12, and you will do so until three of the same suit is picked. You will then win the corresponding amount based on that suit – happy days!
So there you go: Extra Stars in a nutshell. Thanks for reading, and hopefully we have sold the game to you! It’s a lot of fun and there are some useful payouts on offer. It’s not up to the level of many contemporary titles admittedly, but there’s no doubt that this is a rewarding way to spend your time.
