Hyper Star is a colorful slot game developed by Gameburger Studios in collaboration with Microgaming, a casino game distribution company. It is part of the Hyper series, and although other games in the series are often seen as clones of the original, Hyper Star manages to stand out as a unique and novel game. The game aims to transport players to a world of jackpots and big wins, which it manages to do very well.
If you love colorful slot games, you will love Hyper Star. The game has a 5x3 reel grid, with colorful symbols, vibrant lights behind these symbols, and colors everywhere else. The game also has a lot of gold trim, presumably to contrast the rest of the vibrant colors in the game.
With the 5x3 grid, you get 243 different ways to win, but the pay lines go from left to right only. The highest wins are only paid on landing symbols on a full combination of paylines.
Hyper Star has very high volatility, an RTP of 96.05%, and a hit frequency of about 33%. The RTP and hit rate are above average and quite decent for a slot game. To get started, you need to wager between the minimum of $0.20 credits and $40.00 credits per spin.
Because Hyper Star has a classic theme, most players will be very familiar with the symbols used in the game. The low-value symbols are the card suits, club, diamond, heart, and spade. The cherries, bells, dollar signs, 7s, and dice are also low-value symbols.
The golden star is the Wild symbol. It can also substitute other symbols to create winning combos. However, this symbol only appears on the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th reel.
The first winning feature is the free spins feature. By landing 3 or more scatter symbols, you can get up to 32 free spins. However, these spins can be retriggered for a maximum of 48 by landing more symbols when playing with the free spins.
Winning more free spins leads to the multiplier feature, where each win adds to the multiplier. Do note that you can only retrigger the free spins three times.
The rolling reels feature replaces the winning symbols with new ones for each spin. The reels then spin again, meaning if you are lucky enough, you can continue winning with just one spin. The Rolling Reels feature can be activated during normal play, where each win gives you 5 additional spins. In the free spins game, each win in the Rolling Reels feature increases the multiplier up to a maximum of 15x.
Once the Rolling Reels are done, the Jackpot takes over. Here the Wilds are counted, and the number determines if the jackpot is activated. The three jackets are Minor (15x), Major (100x), and Grand jackpots (5000x your wager).
Hyper Star is an exciting casino game without too much nuance. It is easy to play even for beginners, and the great design and lots of chances to win should keep players coming back to it.
