Merkur's Blazing Star is played over five reels and three rows. There are five fixed paylines and the stake per line ranges from £0.05 to £10.00. The symbols are the traditional fruits of orange, melon, cherry, lemon and plum, which bring a sense of nostalgia to your gameplay. For any newcomers to the free slots on our site, this is a chance to see how the games were played in the beginning.
An addition to the symbols is the blazing star, which, if drawn, will significantly increase your win and is definitely the ultimate goal. The game’s appearance is simple and understated, so as not to detract from the task at hand - spinning the reels and reaping the rewards. The black background emphasises the reels and helps you keep your eye on the prize. Single start or auto start options are available and you can set auto start for spins in multiples up to and including 100 spins.
There are no wild or scatter symbols in this game, but there are extra features which help to provide an exciting diversion. The extra features are triggered on winning lines. You will be presented with three options displayed next to the spin button. These additional options are either to collect your winnings, take the card gamble or take the ladder gamble. Selecting collect will simply add your winnings for the paylines to your total and allow you to spin again. Choosing to take the card gamble presents you with a view of a pack of cards with one face up. You then simply indicate whether you predict the next card to be black or red. This step can be repeated if you are successful, until a maximum of 140, or the currency equivalent, is reached.
If you select the ladder gamble, you are presented with a ladder indicating multiples of currency which double at each step. Again, you may continue to press the gamble button to climb the ladder and achieve greater rewards, to a maximum of 140. During this additional gameplay, you are presented with the options to collect winnings at any point, or to collect half. If you choose the latter, half of your winnings will be banked before you continue.
The theoretical return to player for this game is an enormous 96.31% and despite the comparatively fewer paylines and low stake maximum, the payouts associated with winning lines for any symbol are very generous.
The game can be played on any desktop device, or on mobile and tablet devices, and as such, you can enjoy it in the comfort of your own home or take it out and about with you to enjoy anytime.
