It’s a Knockout! New from Microgaming and Northern Lights, coming early in 2022, 5 Star Knockout is a riot of colour and energy that strips slot gaming back to its raw essentials – spin, and (hopefully) win. Play 5 Star Knockout now
The style might be a touch on the retro side, but the shimmering lights that accompany the action definitely makes this a supercharged slot experience.
Across five reels and four rows, collect the Star symbol scatters to knock out other symbols – paving the way to winning combinations made up of more valuable symbols.
As Stars land, they’ll make a symbol’s Star meter fill up – each symbol has its own Star meter, which you’ll see at the bottom of the display.
When a Star Meter is completely filled, you’ll be given five Free Spins, plus two extra spins for each additional symbol you’ve knocked out. There’s also a multiplier, ranging from x2, x3 or x5.
While the Free Spins are in play, it’s possible to collect more stars, knocking out more symbols in the process.
You can even knock out all but the final symbol, which would presumably pave the way to some useful winning combinations.
Aside from Free Spins, there is also a Win Spin Respin feature that can trigger at random during the base game, with the reel spinning again to produce a certain win. Reels can respin multiple times, too.
Ready to take a starring role here, then? Mama said knock you out…
