For those who are already looking forward to celebrating one of the most wonderful and beautiful holidays of the year and for those who are maybe not in the mood yet and feel a bit down and tired rather than cheerful and full of beans. This online casino slot by Novomatic won’t leave you cold. Why are we so sure? About that and the game itself we’re going to tell you in our regular casino slot review.
Wish Upon A Star is a Christmas-themed slot, colorful and bright, with plenty of festive attributes and nice features. If you close your eyes listening to the music and sounds of the game you’ll definitely see an image of the winter wonderland – just as it is in this online casino slot.
The gameplay area is set against the backdrop of a winter forest where fluffy snow is lit by the numerous stars. The symbols that are used in this slot include the standard lower value royal symbols from 10 through to A followed by the more rewarding themed symbols such as golden bells, candy canes, red advent candles, and a Christmas tree covered in ornaments and lights and topped with a golden star. There’s also a beautiful smiling blonde wearing the elf’s hat and handing out bigger wins.
The Christmas present is your wild symbol that appears stacked on even-numbered reels. It substitutes for all symbols except the bonus and star scatters. If you land a stacked wild on reels 2 and/or 4, the Bonus Prizes feature will be activated giving you a choice to pick one from the 3 gift boxes which will reveal a cash prize, trigger the Jackpot round or give you entry to the Free Games feature with 10 free spins. And all the wins you get during these free spins will be doubled. To receive this feature you can also spin three bonus symbols during the regular game. If you get 2 stacked wilds, you’ll need to choose from 6 gifts (with 2 choices).
As for Wish Upon a Star Jackpots feature, it’s triggered via pick and click bonus as we previously mentioned or by landing 6 or more magical shooting star symbols on the same spin. The triggering star symbols are held in position and 3 respins are awarded. Each extra star symbol gives you a win up to 15x your win or 1 of 3 fixed jackpots. There’s the Mini, Minor and Major jackpots that can be won. If you manage to fill the reels with stars, you’ll be awarded the Grand Jackpot which is 200x your bet. So, look out for the stars!
