Sizing This Up
We feel that it would totally unfair to tempt you with the jackpot so early on in this review, and then to not mention it until towards the end, and so let’s focus on the coins to win. Normally we talk about Novomatic with lots of love when it comes to play for real money games, but with this one we’ve got hearts in our eyes. The reason being is that there’s three tiers of real cash to walk away with: Mini, Midi, Maxi.
These amounts are always shown at the top of this mobile-optimised title, with their numbers changing depending on your max bet. If you’ve played with Novomatic before, you’ll have been expecting us to say this; gamblers, you have to put in the cash in to get the goods. This isn’t about free spins or bonus rounds, it’s about getting high volumes of cash as quickly as possible. When we were playing at punters, the total for the Maxi was at 4,866,402 credits!
Climb that Ladder
Even though we’ve said that the variance of this free Awesome Stars slot isn’t that great, there’s a gamble feature that might just win you over. We’re sad to say that it isn’t that unique, but it’ll secure you extra money if you play your cards right. We know, that sounds so cheesy, but it really is true when it comes to the dynamics of this high limit double or nothing.
For the risk option to show up, you’ll need to make a win on one of the five win lines, which shouldn’t prove too taxing, given the medium volatility, but you never know. Once that win is managed however, players will be able to risk it all or collect the cash and carry on with the base activity. We prefer to take the gamble, simply because it’s a ladder type setup rather than the generic card game, and so we feel more interested in what’s on offer here.
We’re so Fancy
Nobody said that one armed bandits need to start and stop with the Awesome Stars video slot, and so we’re introducing you to another side of online gambling: Fancy Fruits. This pokie comes from Bally Wulff, another old school brand that delivers nostalgic slots time and time again. As you’d expect with this, that means that the aesthetics tend to be flat rather than filled with 3D graphics. It also sometimes means that there’s no mobile compatibility, which some casual punters will find rather off putting.
We know that the lack of flexibility isn’t all that great, but you still get a decent number of features, such as a side game of free spins, as well as a low wager of just 0.10 coins. No, it won’t last you for nights to come, but it’ll give you a quick punt, setting you up ready to take on any other online slots that come your way from a casino online.
Totally and Utterly Awesome
We hope that you’ve discovered a retro themed slot that’s right with you, as we feel that we have, but if you haven’t, there’s still plenty more that Novomatic can bring to the table. They might not always gift the best looking titles, but they’ll ensure that even their most latest release is packed full of monetary prizes. That’s not so great if you’re a play for free customer, but for that real money folks out there, that news should be music to your ears. Awesome Stars has a thumbs up from us; hopefully you’ll join us with the same response.
