Set to arrive on 32Red imminently, Star Clusters is an intriguing release from Big Time Gaming that combines a curious reel structure – four columns, four rows to start with – alongside some rather nifty features. Ready to reach for the Stars? Play Star Clusters now
Presentation is out of this world, with shiny gems and stars populating the reels and a moody techno soundtrack accompanying the action. And thanks to the MegaClusters mechanic, the constant reforming and reshaping of the symbols makes for a great visual spectacle – as well as offering you the chance to land decent payouts.
With MegaClusters, winning symbols can split and react to the other symbols around them. If a win occurs, all winning symbols will be replaced by four smaller symbols. Symbols above the replacements will collapse, with new symbols tumbling down from the top of the screen to fill the newly vacant positions. And if a new win occurs, the process will begin again, too.
Reactions have another purpose, too. If five or more occur during the base game, they’ll trigger the Free Spins feature. Here, two Free Spins are awarded, as well as an additional spin for each extra reaction, if there are more than five. And the Free Spins bonus sees the playing grid expanded – you’ll now have 8 rows and 8 columns to play with.
Otherwise, you’ll find Wilds and Gold Wilds which can substitute for other symbols. There’s also a Gold Wild Multiplier, which starts at x1 and will increase by 1 if a Gold Wild appears in a winning combination.
Gold Wild multipliers can play a role during Free Spins too, and can even award additional Free Spins if the multiplier climbs as high as x10.
