Malta-based Pragmatic Play, a flagship slot provider with 80+ HTML 5 titles for mobile and desktop computers, has officially launched a remake of its popular hit Starlight Princess. An anime-themed slot, in Starlight Princess 1000™ the number 1000 derives from the fact that players may land 1,000x multipliers in the game, which further gives them many opportunities to win.
Aligning with its name, the main theme of the remake is a beautiful anime princess floating in the sky getting ready for an adventure. She stays next to a visually stunning grid, where the graphics of the Multipliers and the Scatters symbols have been slightly altered.
The scatter pays mechanic is applied here, where winnings are made when players make winning combinations of 8 or more matching symbols located at any place on the 6×5 grid, that offers 8 paylines, further triggering the Tumble feature. Additionally, this remake can be played on any device, has high volatility, a default RTP of 96.5% and a maximum win of 15,000x a player’s wager.
As for the symbols, the low-value symbols are five shapes in different colors, while the high-value bonus symbols are moons, suns, stars and hearts. A combination of 8 low-value symbols is worth 0.25x to 1x, increasing to 1.5x to 10x a player’s bet for a combination of 8 high-value bonus symbols. There is also a Scatter symbol, which is the princess herself.
Scatter symbol – if players land 4 or more Scatters, they may trigger the Free Spins bonus round. However, if they manage to land 6, a win of 100x a player’s wager awaits them.
Multiplier Symbol – these symbols or values from 2x to 1,000x may appear, further multiplying any winnings that players have produced throughout the same spin.
Tumble – when players make a winning combination, this feature is triggered. Upon activation, each symbol that was part of said winning combination will disappear from the reels, and then new ones will appear descending to fill the empty spaces. This feature stops when there are no more winning combinations in sight.
Free Spins – if players land 4 or more Scatters during the same spin, they receive 15 free spins. Throughout this bonus round, each Multiplier symbol that is triggered will be added to an overall value of the multiplier, which is re-triggered each time players land a Multiplier symbol.
Extra Bet – to trigger this one, players must pay an additional 25% of the wager. Once activated, it more than doubles their odds of activating the Free Spins feature on every spin.
Bonus Buy – in order to trigger this feature, players should want to get to the Free Spins immediately. The cost of the Free Spins feature mentioned above is 100x of the bet.
Commenting on the new slot release, the firm stated in an official press release: “Starlight Princess 1000 exemplifies Pragmatic Play’s continued commitment to expanding its beloved franchise lineup, which customers have consistently embraced, as seen in other recent releases like Twilight Princess and Big Bass Hold & Spinner Megaways.”
