We got similar “cosmic mythology” vibes from Yggdrasil’s Starfire Fortunes TopHit™ as we got from their recent Ragnawolves WildEnergy, although the latter is more rooted in Norse mythology as well. Starfire Fortunes takes you into a planetarium of some kind, and it’s a fantasy slot set in outer space. It comes with an innovative TopHit Reel, and this reel triggers wild transformations on the main grid.
Wilds can also be upgraded with multiplying multipliers, which can lead to decent payouts in the base game. Everything is enhanced when the wild transformation and multiplier upgrades do not reset in the bonus round. This can lead to some climactic final spins depending on the upgrades, and extra spins can prolong the feature as well. The 25,000x potential is hard to complain about, and Starfire Fortunes is well worth trying even if the fantasy theme doesn’t quite rub you the right way.
Starfire Fortunes Slot Features
The Golden Bet can be turned on between any given base game spin, and it will cost you 5x more per spin to keep it on. The benefit is that the Nudge feature (see below) is active at all times. The premium symbols pay between 2 and 8 x your stake for 5 of a kind wins, and Wild symbols come with the core function of substituting for pay symbols to help complete wins.
The TopHit Reel is situated above the main grid, and it will spin together with the regular reels. The TopHit Reel has 5 positions, and these land premium symbols either fully or partially in view. Blanks can also land, and symbols need to land fully in view to do anything.
Premium symbols that land fully in view turn all instances on the main grid wild, and more than one instance on the TopHit Reel adds a multiplier to the wilds. It can go as high as x5, depending on how many instances you got, and multipliers will multiply with each other if more than one is part of the same line win.
The Nudge Feature triggers when the Nudge symbol lands on the main grid, and it can only appear on reel 5. When present, all symbols that are partially in view on the TopHit Reel gets nudged fully into view, and this triggers the wild transformation feature if there are matching symbols on the main grid.
You need 3+ scatters anywhere in view to trigger the Bonus Round, and scatters can also appear on the TopHit Reel to help you out in that regard. You win +1 extra spin per scatter that appears in the bonus round. The big difference from the base game is that wild transformations and multiplier upgrades are persistent. Each fully upgraded x5 wild awards +1 extra spin as well.
Non-UK players, and anyone living in an eligible jurisdiction, can pay 100x the stake to get 8 to 20 free spins, or 500x the stake for 10 to 20 free spins with a guaranteed initial nudge.
The 200 Spins Starfire Fortunes Slot Experience
You get to see the TopHit Reel in action a few times in the base game, before we purchase and trigger the top-tier bonus round at 1:10 into the 2:53-minute highlights video. We got 10 free spins from 5 triggering scatters, and you can see for yourself how we fared by hitting the play button below.
The cosmic mythology theme comes across as a bit unusual for this developer, but Starfire Fortunes is visually pleasing nonetheless. The big innovation that makes this game stick out, however, is the TopHit Reel. It will seldom make a huge impact in the base game, although it can do some damage there as well if things fall into place in the right way. The multiplier wilds multiply together after all, and playing with the Golden Bet active is tempting.
It’s a bit expensive though, but perhaps something to consider for every 10-20 spins, or something, depending on your budget. After the base game has warmed you up to the TopReel transformations, things are taken to a whole new level when these transformations are persistent for the duration of the bonus round. Payouts up to 25,000x your stake is possible when this thing fires on all cylinders, and we wouldn’t be too surprised if this game gains a cult following in the years ahead.
