Graphics and Sounds:

Enjoy futuristic, electronic sounds while you spin away on this space-themed slot game. There are pleasant sound effects that come to life when you hit big wins and when you’re winning streak is over, you’re hit with the familiar ‘power down’ sound.

The graphics themselves are not out-of-this-world but colourful and well-designed. The planets are colourful and well-shaded, the characters have personality and the design of the slot panel looks like something from a spaceship dashboard – combined with the star-filled, galactic background, you feel like you’re really playing in the space age on this slot.


For a standard appearing video slot, Stars Awakening has some cool features and big opportunities to win some money. We like the high-stakes, low-stakes options on this colourful slot, and we’re happy to see some features that are a little bit different… perhaps they’ll truly take our winnings to infinity and beyond!
