The overall design is superb with obvious careful attention to details and will immerse you more into the gameplay. This slot is powered by the Win-both-Ways mechanic that makes it possible for your wins to be paid from left to right and right to left. Furthermore, it comes with 5 reels, 3 rows, and 10 fixed pay lines.
If you go for real money play, you will have to bet between €0.20 and €50 per spin. Since there's no Max Bet button, you can set all bet levels using the – and + buttons on the screen. Once you are ready to start playing, press the big double-arrow Spin button at the bottom-right side of the screen.
As with all other slots from this developer, you will find the Autoplay button immediately before the Spin button. Should you go for the Autoplay, you will spin between 10 and 1,000 spins automatically. There is also something known as ‘Burst Mode’ in the game. This is an exclusively trademarked feature of Slotmill games, and it allows a faster and more focused Autoplay mode.
The gameplay is more optimized for mobile play, making it more enjoyable on mobile devices.
The maximum win you can land from playing this slot is 1,200x the bet. Since the Starspell slot is a Win-both-ways slot, your chances are somewhat random as the wins can come from any angle.
The most rewarding symbol is the Mystic Book that offers you 25x the bet for landing 5 of a kind. The Mystical Star symbol awards you 12x the bet for 5 of its kind on a pay line. Land 5 of the Purple Potion and Red Potion Bottle symbols on a pay line and receive a payout of 6x and 5x the bet, respectively.
The Yellow, Green and Blue Potion Bottle symbols will have you winning 4x, 2.50x, and 2.50x the bet, respectively, for 5 on a pay line. The Wizard symbol is the Wild that will substitute all other symbols to form winning combinations. Even though it has no independent prize, the Wizard wild is a prominent part of this slot. There is no scatter symbol in this slot.
The Starspell bonus comes by way of the Expanding Sticky Wilds feature. The Wizard wild will show up on the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th reels, and upon doing so, it will expand. The expansion will cause a replacement by the wild of all other symbols present on the reel. The expansion will also set a free re-spin in motion. Any extra Wizard wild that shows up subsequently will offer you one extra re-spin, with the expanded wilds also present. Having two or three Wizard wilds form a winning combination will offer you a win multiplier. So, for 2 wilds in a winning combination, you get a 2x win multiplier, while 3 wilds will give you a 3x win multiplier.
You should note that Starspell free spins are not available here.
The Starspell RTP is 96.17%, which is simply acceptable for a slot game. This slot also comes with low volatility, indicating that you will get small wins frequently. So the big wins may not come at all, but the small ones will arrive from time to time.
