Red Tiger Gaming has announced a new casino game, and it’s called Five Star: Power Reels. It introduces a new mechanic, called Power Reels, one which the developer probably hopes it will become as popular as the Megaways one. If we look at the graphics and theme that’s involved, we see a fairly dated look, based on classic pub fruit icons.
Five Star Power Reels offers a large game area, with 8×5 reels being in play, and with only 5 lines available, though they do pay both ways. Among the game’s big features, you will find the Repeat Spin, a bonus called Five Star Instant Win, and that’s about it. In terms of rewards, you could get at most 1,000x per spin, and up to 10,000x if the Repeat Spin option kicks in enough times.
BETTING AND PRIZES
As usual, you get to select the total bet for that round, and in this case, the amount involved varies between $0.10 and $10. The game doesn’t mention anything about a line bet, and in fact, most Red Tiger slots don’t offer that option.
It’s a game which has high volatility, and so naturally, it can pay a lot as well, even though for most players that’s not going to be the experience. As much as 10,000x rewards can be triggered, and at the maximum bet, this could get you $100,000. That’s with the help of Repeat Spin, as a regular winning spin can pay at most 1,000x.
96.06% is the RTP in its case, an OK number, one which tells us that it’s not that different of a slot from most casino games of this type.
FIVE STAR POWER REELS SLOT FEATURES
This is no regular slot machine, you figure that out as soon as its 8×5 reels show up, with only 5 active lines available. While it doesn’t pay easily, once you do trigger a winning combo, you can hope to get good payouts, especially thanks to the Repeat Spin option.
Repeat Spin will trigger following winning combinations, but it’s a random feature, and it’s not guaranteed to happen for you. When triggered, the winning round repeats in the exact same form, giving you another win of the same value. This can happen up to 10 times, and so the payout of a spin is boosted by up to 10x thanks to the Repeat Spin.
Another way to get a good payout, and potentially a Repeat Spin as well, is through the appearance of three to five game logos which appear scattered. They pay 25x to 1,000x total stake when that happens, and with the help of Repeat Spin the payout can be boosted up to 10,000x.
THEME & DESIGN
Theme wise, there isn’t anything interesting here. You get a fruit themed slot, which offers the same dated icons which we’ve seen so many times in the past. The style of the design is quite low quality as well, so you get the look of a 90s game in a slot which proposes modern features, and I’m not a fan of this combination. The symbols shown here are logos, along with watermelons, grapes, plums, oranges, lemons and cherries.
Five Star Power Reels is indeed a modern game, a slot machine which proposes a new way of playing this type of game, and which has high volatility and impressive jackpots of 10,000x total stake. It’s also a slot with a dated design, which doesn’t contribute much to the player’s enjoyment of its action.
