Starmada Exiles Slots

Nowadays, when we say pirate, most people think of people stealing software. But back in the day, they were fierce and feared men who sailed the seas and plundered other people’s riches. They’re a much rarer phenomenon in today’s world. But in outer space, with literal light years between planets, the opportunity is perfect for a resurgence. Starmada Exiles is played on a 5x3 board with 25 fixed paylines. It comes with two special features. The first is the Plunder bonus, which allows you to turn exile symbols Wild or to earn a cash prize. Exile icons will only become Wild when the next free spins are activated. During free spins, you can also upgrade exiles into Wilds by collecting rubies on the reel 5.

How to Play

While the background image is completely static, it’s so stylish that we can’t help but love it. It very much shows that our ragtag crew is far from home. Hiding among scraps and uninhabited planets, making ends meet however they can. Even the ships they use are a bit mismatched, indicating that they’ve stolen then, rather than built them themselves. You play this slot on a 5-reel board, where each reel is three symbols tall. To win, players must collect three or more identical icons in adjacent positions, starting with the leftmost reel. All wins must follow one of the currently active paylines or the cash prize won’t be awarded.

Betting Options and Payout

Setting your total bet is incredibly easy in this game! All you have to do is press the plus and minus key beneath the Total Bet tab. This allows you to wager between $0.25 and $2,500 on each spin, which is a fantastic betting spread. Playtech’s release has a medium variance and an RTP of 96.18, which is slightly above the current industry average. The maximum jackpot you can win is 1,500x your total stake, or $3,750,000 if playing on max bet. A solid jackpot for the volatility it offers, though nothing mind-blowingly amazing.

Symbols and Extra Features

Available symbol designs take a bit of liberty with the believability of the setting. They’re essentially sci-fi takes on old pirate gear like blunderbusses, spyglasses, boxes full of gold and so on. The exiles also look great, if a bit too wealthy. But we suppose the leaders always get the brunt of all the profits, no? Collect two Scatters on the first and third reel to activate the Plunder bonus. During this special feature, you click between one of two Scatters. It will either award a cash prize or turn one of the exile icons Wild for the next free spins. To win the extra turns bonus, you have to find three Scatters in the first, third and fifth reel. Free spins are played with any upgraded exiles appearing as Wild on the reels 2 to 5. Rubies can appear on the reel 5 while this special feature is active and collecting three turns another exile Wild. You can also win ten more free spins by finding three more Scatters.

Our Verdict

We couldn’t have asked for a better way to scratch our sci-fi itch. Starmada Exiles is a great medium variance slot. It has a good RTP, a decent jackpot, and engaging special features. It won’t be winning any awards, but it’ll definitely keep you entertained.
