Wish Upon a Star Slot
Wish Upon a Star is Greentube’s version of a Christmas themed slot machine, offering traditional style graphics revolving around this holiday and the many different things that only seem to make an appearance at that time of the year. They’ve done a decent job with it, but there are cons as well, as you’re going to discover by reading our review.
You have a slot with 5x3 reels, fairly common these days, as is the setup with 243 ways to win. Through them, you get to form your combinations, but these don’t appear to go higher than 200x the stake or so, with a bit more potential from some of the features. Even so, we’ve heard that the Return to player is at 97.12%, which makes Wish Upon a Star a good pick for someone that prefers slots with medium volatility.
Betting and Prizes
You will only have to select the wager for 25 lines out of the 243 which are possible in Wish Upon a Star. It’s a common option for slot machines with ways to win, where you basically decide only on the coin value, whenever you’re picking the total bet. Here, the range is between $0.25 and $50, allowing for up to $2 coins.
As regular spins will pay up to 200x the stake, or about $10,000, Wish Upon a Star tends to disappoint in this area. Even with its best area, the bonus feature which delivers jackpots, you still can’t get more than 480x the stake when you trigger everything you can possible get there.
Ultimately, the game appears to have medium volatility, and it apparently manages to hit a RTP of 97.12%, which is excellent.
Wish Upon a Star Slot Features
First, look out for the wild symbol, the one showing you the image of the Christmas Gift. This one’s a symbol that you get stacked on the 2nd and 4th reels, from where it will be able to replace various other symbols. This will not be the case with Star scatters or bonus symbols.
Whenever the stacked wild covers both the 2nd and the 4th reel, the game gets you into a bonus feature. The game offers you three presents on each reel, and you pick one in each case (two picks total). This can end up triggering the free spins, a jackpot or a regular cash prize.
You can get 10 free spins either through the feature I mentioned above, or via three scatters which can show up on the 1st, 3rd and 5th reels. With another set of scatters, you can then retrigger the feature once.
Theme & Design
You will find a traditional Christmas themed slot machine here, which offers a snow covered landscape for the background, while for the reels we get Christmas tree decorations to the sides. The symbols do include some basic Royals, but there are also symbols with presents, a woman, candles, Christmas trees, candy cane and bells. It’s a decent design overall, but I’ve also seen a lot better from other developers.
Wish Upon a Star is looking like a decent pick for Christmas, and the main reason for that is the high RTP which is being advertised for it. Otherwise, it’s a fairly average offer when it comes to top payouts, features and even graphics.
