Starz Megaways is an upcoming title courtesy of the gamemaker Pragmatic Play. Design-wise, the slot seems to be heavily influenced by the NetEnt slot Starburst, and we wonder if the Swedish studio would take any actions this time. Back in 2019, NetEnt threatened to take things to court because of a Play’n GO slot resembled Starburst. As a result, Play’n GO had to alter the design and change the name before launch. Enough for the visual content, let’s see if there are any noteworthy features we haven’t seen before in a Megaways slot.

Starz Megaways is a high volatility 6-reeler offering up to 117, 649 ways to win. Instead of using the common cascading reels mechanics, Pragmatic Play decided to go for a pay both ways system. Yes, this is the first Megaways slot that pays left to right and right to left and you are granted a payout for a combination of at least 3 symbols.
The slot is playable across desktop and mobile devices and accepts bets in the range 0.20-100 per spin.
The low-value symbols you will land are represented by planets in different shapes and colours. The gemstones in different colours are the better payers.
The bursting star is the wild that turns into an expanding wild in the base game. If an expanding wild appears during the free spins it remains locked in place for the feature duration.
Land at least 3 fire bonus symbols in one spin to get 6 free spins. The more bonus symbols you get, the more free spins you win. A retrigger is not possible.
It seems that Starz Megaways has its moments but in terms of features, it is a pretty basic slot. We will see how well it would be accepted by players once it goes live on June 11, 2020.
