Every now and again, slot game designers come up with a title that defines an entire genre. Winstar is one such game and has been one of the world's most popular slots since it was released.
The beauty of Winstar is its simplicity. When Blueprint Gaming designed this slot, they created a simple looking user interface that looks so minimalist that you are caught off guard by just how good Winstar really is. This is a 5-reel slot with just 10 fixed paylines. The symbols appear on a semi-transparent space, behind which is a deep purple, pink, and orange background reminiscent of the heavens.
The symbols start with playing card symbols from 10 through Ace. They are enhanced by a set of four stars of different colours. The silver is the most valuable among them, paying 500X your original wager should you land five of them on a single payline. There is a Bonus symbol in the spinning star.
To play, use the + and – buttons underneath the reels to establish your total bet; it will be divided equally across all 10 paylines. Then just spin the reels and see what happens. Three or more like symbols on the same payline beginning from the far left creates a winner.
The Winstar feature is the first of two special features in this exciting game. This feature is always available for activation, so watch for the spinning star. Whenever it appears it will land stacked on the corresponding reel. Furthermore, it will spin and transform along with all the others in play. They will all be the same symbol when they stop.
This game uses blueprints Jackpot King, this is a game with many stages which gives you the chance to play for a huge progressive jackpot if you can battle your way to the final stages.
How does the jackpot end up to be so overflowing I hear you ask? 0.13% of each stake is added to a reserve pot. When the Jackpot King is dropped it will reset using the reserve pot. The Jackpot begins with a seed fund , which means the Jackpot ends up being funded by the initial seed with an added 0.86% of each stake. Then the final drips of that is the equivalent to 0.13% which is given to the reserve pot.
