Although Star Bounty’s presentation fails to impress with shoddy visuals, an underwhelming soundtrack and characters that look like they’ve been ripped straight out of a AAA video game, the great list of features on offer and their brilliant implementation still make it a slot worth checking out.
- Varied list of features.
- Great implementation of the slot mechanics.
- Bland visuals.
- Soundtrack kills the theme.
Prepare to enter the foray of space in Star Bounty! Pragmatic Play sets this video slot in the epic frontier of outer space, with a cast of characters that look very suspiciously similar to the main cast of Bioware’s Mass Effect series. This group of bounty hunters are set on a very different mission though, one which will hopefully bag you a few winning combinations. The presentation isn’t necessarily awful, but the lack of interesting backdrop and cliché animations make the slot feel a bit basic and dated.
The confusing soundscape doesn’t really fit in the theme either, sounding more like a cheesy arcade game than an epic space adventure. But presentation isn’t everything, so let’s have a look at the video slot functions and features that make up Star Bounty.

This star-studded adventure comes with some added bonus features that work together to create an experience that is truly out of this world.
Generic wilds can be conventional, predictable and a tad boring. That’s why Star Bounty has tied these tired slot symbols to missiles that will explode on your reels, turning other random symbols into wilds. It’s a neat feature that gives us a fresh twist on the staple slot feature and ties in perfectly with the given theme.
Scatter symbols on the other hand are quite generic. They will do their general duty to take you all the way into Free Spins mode, should you be lucky enough to land three of them in one spin.
Free Spins / Respins
Before beginning your Free Spins mode, you’ll need to go through the Re-Spin feature that will determine just how many free spins you’ll get. The function works by locking in your existing Scatter symbols and re-spinning all of the other symbols in an attempt to land more Scatter symbols. New Scatters will be locked as well while the rest of the symbols get spun again and again until no Scatter symbols land. Once that’s done all symbols are counted and that gives you your number of free spins (with a maximum of 24).
Free Spins mode will run with the general setup of the game, adding in wild multipliers that can even multiply by each other’s value.
Whenever you manage a win on the reels, winning symbols will be removed, allowing for new ones to drop into their spaces in an attempt to continue your winning streak.
Of all the contracts undertaken by these intergalactic bounty hunters, a jackpot doesn’t really feature, so you’ll have to earn your keep from other game mechanics.
This inter-galactic experience can be enjoyed across a selection of Pragmatic Play licensed casinos like Leo Vegas. You could even have a go at Video Slots, where a welcome bonus offer is waiting for you!
