Hollywood Star Slot Machine

Hollywood Star offers fame, glamour and er, fruits. Ok, so the title may be a bit misleading because it doesn't really offer spinners a full taste of the Hollywood lifestyle. Instead, the slot machine takes after a classic arcade gambling game with its assorted symbols which are simple and fruity. Players have to try and line these icons up across the 5 reels in correspondence with the 5 paylines. Spin this slot the right way and you could take home its jackpot total which is worth a very nice 10,000,000 credits.

Hollywood Dreams

In reality, this mish-mash game is quite a lazy attempt to spruce up the classic slot machine genre. Even though the title promises some Hollywood Star action, the only thing it offers is one reel symbol which shows an image of Marilyn Monroe. Unless you've seen any films to come out of the iconic Los Angeles studios recently which star cherries and watermelons in the leading roles, then there isn't anything else of Hollywood calibre to mention. Well, there is quite a ritzy showbiz backing track, but that does get quite tiresome after a few spins.

Visually speaking, the game performs adequately well for a retro themed slot machine. However, there are plenty more fruit machine style games out there with more modern aesthetics which would easily trump the simple graphics on offer at Hollywood Star.

The Riches Of Showbusiness

The one saving grace of this aesthetically average slot machine is the fact that is does offer some very attractive high pay-outs. There are only 5 reels in the game, thus less chances to find a frequent winning combination. The upside of this, however, is that there are some mightily juicy winnings to reap when you do hit those combinations.

Pay-out wins for normal gameplay symbols are worked out by multiplying the size of the bet/line value with the corresponding multiplier for each possible win sequence. The least lucrative combination would be to find two cherries on a payline, but even then this will multiply your line bet by 5x. Five cherries in a row will reward a 200x multiplier, as will five lemons, oranges and plums. That is not a bad pay-out value considering these are the slot machine's most common symbols. Five grapes or watermelons will give back 500x the line bet. The best symbol on the reels is Marilyn Monroe – the iconic Hollywood Star will offer a very glamorous line bet multiplier of 5,000x.

Players can place line bets as high as 2000. So, that would make the game's ultimate jackpot prize a staggering 10,000,000. If you win that money then maybe you'd be able to see some of the real Hollywood for yourself.

Find The Star

This game is basic in style and also pretty basic when it comes to extra features. The only special symbol on offer is the scattering star icon. This symbol doesn't abide by any particular paylines so it will reward winning values even if it doesn't line up with other stars. Finding three of these scatters will multiply your total bet by 2x while four stars will multiply the total bets by 10x and five will offer a 50x multiplier of all stakes.

Gamble For Fame And Glory

There may not be any razzmatazz available in the bonus department but there is at least the usual gamble game. This little side game is available to activate after any winning bet that is less than 500x the total stake. So, essentially, you won't be able to gamble if you win the Marilyn Monroe jackpot.

The gamble is a straight up 50/50 chance game with a double or nothing outcome. You will be presented with a face down playing card and two options: red or black? Guess the colour of the card correctly to double your wins from the previous spin. If you choose the wrong colour then you will go back to the game and lose those winnings. You can play this simple gamble game up to five times in a row – if you have the nerve!

Not Enough Razzmatazz

Sometimes there are slot machines that just don't offer anything of interest and, despite its promising title, Hollywood Star is unfortunately one of those games. The visual aspect is generic and lacklustre while there aren't any special gameplay features to provide any other kind of excitement. That said, players may be enticed by that big Marilyn Monroe jackpot, not to mention some relatively generous pay-outs for more common reel symbols.
