Star Jewels combines the cosmos with precocious stones. Released by Rival Gaming, Star Jewels is like a poor man's Starburst (NetEnt). Of course, such comparisons are unfair when considering that Starburst is one of the greatest online slots of all time. Does Star Jewels compare favorably to the average game? We'll discuss this matter by reviewing the key aspects of this slot.
This game features a mixture of jewels, letters, and numbers on the reels. The letters and numbers (A through 9) pay the least. Meanwhile, gems like the sapphire, pearl, and diamond offer the most. Five diamonds in a payline offer the highest standard payout at 1,000x your stake. Five purple gems pay the second most at 250x.
Graphics & Atmosphere
The symbols and game title in Star Jewels look fine from a visual perspective. However, they don't represent Rival Gaming's best work. Furthermore, the background is an unidentifiable blur of jewels and outer space. Taking everything into account, Star Jewels is indeed the poor man's Starburst.
Star Jewels Slots Bonuses
This game offers a wild symbol that's both sticky and expanding. The wild appears on reels 1, 2, and 3. When the wild expands, it also remains onscreen (a.k.a. sticky) for a free re-spin. Additional sticky wilds will also remain onscreen and continue triggering re-spins. Unfortunately, this game doesn't offer any extra bonuses.
Play Demo Mode and/or Bet Real Money
We recommend trying Star Jewels for free before you bet real money on it. After all, you might not be totally sold on gambling anything with this game. You can play for free as soon as you register for an account at a Rival Gaming site. Assuming you're interested in playing for real money, you can make a deposit using available options at your chosen casino. Most Rival sites accept major credit cards, e-wallets, and Bitcoin.
This game offers very flexible options regarding your wagers. You can adjust lines from 1-15, coins per line from 1-5, and coin size from $0.01 to $1. These options create a total betting range going from one cent to $75. Our only issue with these options is that they're not listed on the game screen. Instead, you must visit the help screen to make changes.
Play on Your Android or iPhone
You can take this outer-space adventure through your smartphone or tablet. You will, however, need a device that operates through Android or iOS. Basically, you just have to own an iPhone, iPad, or Android.
Star Jewels RTP
The Star Jewels RTP is 95.3%. This payout percentage is below average in comparison to the typical slot, but we can live with it. The volatility feels medium for a 15-line online slot. We netted quite a fair amount of wins during our session.
Overall Rating on Star Jewels Slots
We give Star Jewels a 6 out of 10 rating. This slot isn't a bad game, but it doesn't offer anything that truly grips us. The music and symbol graphics are adequate. You can also boost your win frequency thanks to the expanding/sticky wild and free re-spins. However, the atmosphere, background graphics, and RTP are all lacking. In summary, we have mixed opinions about Star Jewels and suggest that you try it for free before risking real money.
