Star Pirates Code slot REVIEW

Star Pirates Code ReviewThere are plenty of Starburst-inspired releases out there already, but none of them are quite like Star Pirates Code. Reel Kingdom hasn’t exactly gone overboard with creativity in the designing process of this rather simple installment though, but the mix of Starburst-inspired gemstones and pirate elements gets the job done without dazzling anyone.

You’ll have to endure plenty of dead spins, with occasional smaller wins, between Compass induced Wild Respins which is the sole feature. The big twist is that the compass needle determines which direction the wilds expand (including diagonally), and all the action takes place on the 3 middle reels, as usual. The volatility is higher than in Starburst, but the potential is significantly beefed up to match.

Star Pirates Code Features

Regular symbols pay between 1.2 and 15 x your stake for 5 of a kind, and the treasure chest is the top-tier symbol. This game is all about the Wild Compass Respin feature however, and we’ll take a closer look at how it works below.

The Compass symbol will appear at random times on the 3 middle reels, and the compass needle spins to determine the direction of the wild spread that follows. If the compass lands in a corner, wilds can be spread both vertically, horizontally or diagonally, and the same is true if the compass lands in the center position.

In all other positions however, the wilds will expand either horizontally or vertically in the direction of the arrow, and the compass itself also turns wild. All wilds become sticky for a respin, and if you land a new compass symbol the process repeats with even more wilds added for another sticky wild respin. If a wild is generated on top of a wild, the wild multiplier for that position increases by +1, and the feature ends when you land no new compass symbols.

The 200 Spins Star Pirates Code Experience

The first half of our 4:18-minute highlights video contains nothing but dead spins and occasional low to decent payouts. We trigger a few Compass Respins in the second half of the video however, and you can see for yourself how we fared by hitting the play button below.

Review Summary

The name of the game, as well as the gemstones, is clearly a tip of the hat to Starburst, the obvious source of inspiration for this Reel Kingdom release. Instead of the usual expanding wilds respins most copycat titles come with, you get different configurations of wilds in this installment. This makes each Compass Respins trigger less predictable, but also potentially less lucrative.

In Starburst, and similar releases, you know that 3 respins in a row guarantees that the 3 middle reels are wild on the final respin. This is not necessarily the case in Star Pirates Code, but you’re compensated by a higher 2,500x potential. Of course, you pay the price in terms of volatility, and the max win is hard-capped so the feature will end if you hit it. Plenty of dead spins are to be expected here, and most significant payouts come from the Respin triggers.

If you appreciate Star Pirates Code you should also try:

Starburst XXXtreme - is NetEnt’s follow-up to one of the most iconic releases ever made, and non-UK players can buy 1 or 2 guaranteed starburst wilds per spin. The expanding sticky wild respins feature comes with random multipliers that can combine up to x450, and you can thus win up to an eye-popping 200,000x your stake.

Crystal Sun - is a highly volatile Starburst copycat from Play’n Go, and it’s all about the expanding wild respin feature. The big difference is that the wilds come with x3 multipliers that can combine up to x9, and this can lead to payouts up to 4,000x your stake.

Booty Bay - is a Push Gaming buccaneer release, and it plays out on a 5x5 cluster pays grid. The 3x3 hotzone in the middle awards indefinite respins with increasing multiplier wilds that roam around, and there are plenty of ways to trigger this feature. You can win up to 20,000x your stake, and the volatility is high.
