Big Time Gaming’s Starquest Megaways™ is undoubtedly one of the most visually impressive Megaways™ slots you can come across. With a space-age theme that never gets tiring and rip-roaring 3D animation and graphics, the visual element to Starquest by far surpasses those found in many other similarly themed slot games.
Graphics alone are seldom enough to make a slot a real winner though. Big Time Gaming have ensured that Starquest is equipped with a few decent features to ramp up the level of excitement and the odds of winning in the game. Sure enough, Starquest Megaways™ may not have quite as many goodies available as other slots, but those it does have will do a job for most players.

HOW TO PLAY STARQUEST MEGAWAYS™
STARQUEST MEGAWAYS™ HAS UP TO 117,649 WAYS TO WIN AND CAN PAY BOTH LEFT TO RIGHT, AND RIGHT TO LEFT
Starquest Megaways™ is a bit more barebones than some of the other big-hitters in this genre of games, like the all action Genie Jackpot Megaways™. However, the Megaways™ payline structure is available, and this can see as many as 117,649 paylines delivered to players at random on every single spin of the reels. This 6-reel slot won’t cost as much to play as you might think, either. Despite being something of a high variance release, Starquest Megaways™ will only cost players €0.20 a turn at its cheapest. If you wish to splash out when playing Starquest, maximum stakes can rise as high as €20 a game.
The kinds of maximum stakes you’re looking at in this slot equate to a non-progressive jackpot of €250,000. That’s not too shabby given the low wagering range. The SQ logos make up the best-paying symbols in the slot, with gemstone and playing card icons making up the rest of the game symbols. Starquest has a moderate RTP (return to player) rate which is above the industry standard, sitting at 96.22%
STARQUEST MEGAWAYS™ FEATURES
LAND STACKED MULTIPLIERS ON STARQUEST MEGAWAYS™ AND YOU COULD BE HITTING SOME HUGE WINS
Most of the slot’s symbols can appear stacked on the reels of this BTG slot, and that is also true of the wild icons. They appear as the heroine in the game. This space adventurer can pop up on the second, third, fourth and fifth reels. She will naturally replace all other icons in the game, as there are no scatters to contend with.
Whenever a stacked wild does appear on the reels (and it covers an entire reel), it will become frozen and trigger a re-spin. The wild will also gain a 1x multiplier value. Should another wild appear, a further re-spin will be granted, and those wilds will increase in value, with 2x multipliers. This can continue until either the four central reels all have wild symbols displayed, or until no new wild symbols occur. It is worth noting that wild multiplier can also be multiplied together, offering more significant wins. This feature does come in the place of a proper free spin bonus though.
OUR CONCLUSION ON STARQUEST MEGAWAYS™
There is no free spin bonus, there are no scatter icons, and Starquest Megaways™ doesn’t offer click and win features either. This is one of the more straightforward Megaways™ slots out there and has some similarities to Slots O' Gold Megaways™ in terms of what it offers - but with bets as cheap as this game accepts, and prizes worth up to €250,000, few will complain about the slot.
