Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star

The theme here is clearly astronomy, stars and the vast vacuum of space. The background of the game consists of a simple but efficient view of outer space, with distant stars glowing faintly in the distance. In the foreground are vast gas clouds, lit up by a nearby star and flaring up in shades of orange and yellow. The name of the game, Mystery Star, stands ominously in tall, green letter at the top of the screen.

The 5 reels are encased in a rectangular, black frame which stands out from the more detailed background. The colours of the reel symbols are bold and vibrant, a quite enticing and contrasting mix together with the starry background. The symbols themselves are simply drawn, and their sleek, bright colours compliments the overall vibe of the game set nicely.

If you’re looking for beautiful, vibrant graphics coupled to a classic, vintage feel in an online pokie, then Mystery Star is probably a Novomatic creation you should try out.

Ignition!

Start up your engines, and let’s see what the game has to offer in terms of gameplay. Again, Novomatic aficionados will immediately recognize their usual game screen: select the numbers of paylines you wish to bet on and the amount of your wager, Start button to get the reels moving and Autoplay to let the symbols flow and aim for the stars uninterrupted. The more paylines you bet on and the higher your wager, the greater the potential wins you can make!

For some symbols, you need only two identical icons to line up on an active payline to be a winner. And even the low-hanging fruits can be of substantial value!

Fresh Fruits Launched Into Space

There are seven basic symbols in Mystery Star, and they don’t really belong in outer space to begin with. But if the players can ignore this little detail, they will happily be on the lookout for those interstellar fruits.

Starting low on the paytable we find the Cherries and Lemons, of which you’ll need only two to start accumulating credits. The more you get, the better of course, and combinations of up to five symbols are possible, paying from left to right.

Moving up the scale we have the Oranges and Plums, followed by the Bells, the Watermelons and finally the Red Sevens. Above them all is a golden Star symbol, which doubles as the Scatter symbol of the game as well. Regardless of alignment, three to five Stars appearing on screen after a spin will trigger a big win. And that’s when the mystery kicks in: nobody knows exactly how much that gain will be. Not until it actually happens at least, but the amount of credits won with the golden Stars are only given as a rough estimate on the paytable. Keep also in mind that the only way to the ultimate jackpot is to find five Stars when playing as a real money pokie, or to line up five Red Sevens. And the wins can be astronomically high!

Sweet Little Mystery

Mystery Star is built on a solid foundation, which will be familiar to those who have experience playing with Novomatic slots in the past. You will easily be able to adapt your betting strategy to what you gut tells you as you play and watch the reels spin around at light speed.

The lack of Free Spins or of any separate bonus round might be poor for some, but on the other hand it ensures the players a seamless gaming experience – even more so if they use the Autoplay function. One could almost say that there would not even be a need to watch the screen to ensure that one’s gains are piling up safely, but that would mean missing out on the stellar beauty of the action unfolding on screen. Definitely keep your eyes on the way forward as you navigate among the stars!

What some players will love in the simplicity of the setup added to the beautiful graphics, others will criticize for its lack of boldness. The game may struggle to compete with more modern space based games such as NetEnt's Sparks. But for extra interactivity, there’s always the Gamble feature for a 50/50 chance of doubling the last spin’s gains – or losing them all, forever drifting away into space.
