Aliens And Planets In New Playtech Pokie

September 13, 2017


Playtech is the games supplier to some of the leading Australian online casinos like Omni Casino and Mansion Casino. Alien themed online pokies are very popular and Playtech has some exciting titles in its portfolio. Cowboys and Aliens and Alien Hunter have been around for quite some time. Now Playtech has launched a new alien themed online pokie Star Awakening. It has fantastic artwork to begin with and an awesome respins feature that will lead to astronomical wins.

Star Awakening is a 5×3 structured online pokie with 20 fixed paylines. The reels are set in the blackness of outer space. The high paying symbols are brightly coloured planets that look stunning as they rotate against the dark sky. The red planet awards the highest line payout of 500 coins. Do not worry because it is likely to get multiplied several times over in the respins feature. The low paying symbols are aliens of matching colours with the usual playing card icons. They range from monstrous to cute. The earth is the wild symbol that usually appears stacked on the reels.

A feature in the main game is Giant Spin. A 3×3 sized symbol may randomly appear on the last three reels. It could be a high paying planet symbol or the wild symbol. This increases the chance of hitting a winning combination with five symbols.

However, the highlight feature is Supernova Scatters. The first level is triggered after any winning spin. You are immediately awarded the respin in which the purple planet acts as a scatter. If the respin leads to a win you enter the second level and get another respin in which the blue and green planets also become scatters. If the second respin leads to a win the third level is activated. You get a final respin in which all the planets act as scatter symbols. Payouts also accrue when you get the same scatter symbol anywhere on three or more reels during a respin. The total payout is equal to the pay table value of the symbol multiplied by the number of times it appears on each reel. The wild symbol will substitute for the designated scatter symbols to award these payouts.

The total bet per spin in the Playtech Star Awakening online pokie can be varied from AU$0.20 to AU$2000. Therefore, both low rollers and high rollers can play this game. Star Awakening has the regular Playtech functionalities like speed control and auto play.
