Microgaming’s Starlight Kiss online video slot was launched just in time for Valentine’s Day 2013, and you’d be right on the money if you assumed from this that it has a distinctly romantic theme. Yes, love is in the air with this five-reel slot that includes thirty dashing pay-lines, and a veritable chocolate box of scatters, wild, free spins, and bonus rounds.
If you’ve just been through a break-up or can’t stand anything in the least bit romantic, you might want to give the Starlight Kiss slot game a wide berth.
Otherwise, those of you, who like the idea of a slot themed around love and romance, should prepare to cuddle up to your computer monitor and indulge yourself.
While it might not be quite as epic as Romeo and Juliet, the Starlight Kiss slot certainly sets the scene for romance with a background of a flower garden at dusk. The reel symbols include a man holding a red rose, a beautiful woman in an evening gown, the couple embracing, a box of chocolates and strawberries. Plus a hand-written love letter on a sheet of parchment.
It has a distinct historical feel, so if you’re into historical romance novels, this should tick all the boxes.
There may not be a progressive jackpot on offer. There is still a max coin payout of 40,000 to play for, and the betting range of 0.01 to 150.00 should please low-stakes players and High Rollers alike. The coin bet range goes from 0.01 up to 0.25, and you can play with as many as twenty coins per line.
The Starlight Kiss slot logo acts as the game’s wild symbol, and this replaces all other symbols except the wild when it appears anywhere on the reels and helps form a winning combination. It does not give a multiplier however.
The scatter symbol on the Starlight Kiss slot is the Mansion, which can appear anywhere on the reels, and two or more of these symbols will pay you 300+ coins. If five appear, you’ll enjoy a handsome payout of 21,000 coins, plus three or more Mansions will unlock the free spins feature.
Free Spins Round:
Three or more scatters on the Starlight Kiss slot will award you with fourteen free spins with a 2x multiplier. This feature can be re-triggered if a further three or more scatter symbols appear during your free spins.
There’s another icon of the couple embracing that’s marked ‘Bonus’ that we’ve not yet mentioned. If three of these appear on the second, third and fourth reels, the Romance Bonus will activate.
If it happens, you’ll be taken to a second screen where you’ll need to pick from three of the ten objects that are present on the screen. Each one contains either a number of coins or hearts. Hearts will help increase the romance meter on the left-hand side which will boost the multiplier for this round.
If the corny music doesn’t deter you (remember, there’s always the ‘mute’ button!), then the Starlight Kiss slot is an extremely enjoyable game. And that’s bound to give you a few warm and fuzzy feelings. It boasts a great range of features, and the max jackpot of 40,000 coins should be enough to melt even the coldest of hearts.
