Extra Stars Online Slots Overview
Extra Stars from Novomatic is a very basic online slot. It has no extra features except for a wild symbol, and very standard graphics that are based on old school fruit machines. Back in the day slots used to be called fruit machines, due to them having only a very few symbols which were pretty much all fruits.
These games could be found in pubs, cafe’s and gathering places of all kinds all over the world. With no extras the only point to these fruit machines was to spin the reels and try to line up identical symbols in a row from left to right. Extra Stars is a game designed along exactly those lines. The whole point is to line up symbols from left to right on one of the ten paylines.
Players who enjoy the simple things in life should enjoy Extra Stars. However if you are looking for second screen bonus game action and never ending thrills, this is definitely not the game for you. With Extra Stars you can expect solid reel spinning action and that’s all. All ten paylines are always active, but coin values range from 0.01 all the way up to 1, which makes the game quite flexible.
The graphics in Extra Stars are not going to change your life. They are very basic, done in typical fruit machine style with bright colours and dark outlines and little detail. The fruits are not realistic but do look god against the black backed reels. Behind the reels is non descript red pattern that may or may not be a carpet. The basic graphics do mean that this slot pays very well on the mobile platform. You can take Extra Stars with you wherever you go, as long as you have a decent Internet connection.
Luscious Fruity Symbols
All the symbols in Extra Stars are theme based, although there are very few of them. At the bottom of the fruit pile we have cherries and lemons worth 200 coins for five of them in a row. On top of those in our fruit salad are plums and oranges, and then melons and grapes. Banana are worth the most with up to 10 000 coins for five of them. Of course this all depends on your coin values. Right on top we have lucky sevens paying out up to 20 000 coins.
Extra Stars has no features except for a wild symbol. This is the star of the game, and shows up on the reels as a golden star. Only found on reels two, three and four, this wild does expand to cover the entire reel that can lead to decent wins. Not only does it expand, but it also takes the place of any other symbol in the game. The expanding wild also retriggers the free spins with an extra spin every time that it comes up during your initial free spins round.
Extra Stars does have a gamble feature, where you can double or nothing any win that you achieve. This is done by correctly guessing the colour of a playing card, which gives you 50% chance of getting it right. Beware however, should you get it wrong you lose your win completely.
