It doesn’t really matter if you’re in the Northern or Southern hemisphere, you’ll still be able to catch a glimpse of the Orion’s Belt constellation. We here in South Africa might be able to see it better thanks to the lower levels of light pollution.

Online video slot game creator, ELK Studios slot developers has tried their hand at creating a fun and really interesting title that revolves around the constellation and a little bit of physics! There is a unique feature present in this title that isn’t seen in most other cascading video slot games, read on to find out more about this particular feature.

Continue on with our review to find out about every bonus, feature, extra, and symbol that you’ll come across when you decide to launch this title.

Theme & Symbols

Based nearly entirely around the stars, constellations, and the night sky this title does such a good job invoking a sense of wonder and mystery.

The game has a static background which is a bit of a disappointment, if the stars twinkled in the night sky it would’ve done so much to add to the sense of immersion but unfortunately, there are no persistent background animations.

The soundtrack for this online release is definitely an interesting choice. You might imagine a game such as this one having a calming track, one that encourages deep contemplation and thought but no, a synth-style rock and roll track plays in the background. If it’s too much for you then you can always just mute it in the settings which is always a nice option to have.

The grid is held between two stone columns, there are no discernable reels in the game, each icon is gathered between the pillars. This lends itself to the physics-based feature that the game uses.

Overall, this game has a lot of potential but visually it’s rather disappointing. Nothing is game-breaking and it can absolutely still be enjoyed, but a little more effort would’ve gone a long way.

Symbols

Every icon is represented by a sphere. Starting with the low-paying symbols we have purple, green, blue, and red balls that fall into the grid.

Next up are the high-paying icons. Three animals and a 7 will distinguish these balls from the others. An eagle, wolf, and elk are the animals while the 7 is the most valuable of these images. It isn’t subtle at all that ELK Studios made the elk the most valuable animal symbol.

‘W’s, of course, represent the Wild symbol. Wilds will substitute for any other common icon in the game, allowing you to extend combinations or form entirely new ones.

Spheres with a ‘B’ in them are the Bonus icons for this release. Land enough of these during a single drop and a special gameplay feature will trigger.

Online Betting Options & Features

Stars Of Orion is a cascading video slot game that consists of 6 – reels and 8 – rows. Wins are determined by clusters of at least 5 matching symbols. The RTP for this online release sits at a rather low 95%. Bets can range from 0.20 – 100 coins per spin.

Features

Like most cascading video slot games, winning symbol drops will result in the winning icons disappearing in order for new images to fall in place. Unlike other games, because each icon is round, as soon as the winning icons disappear and the other ones shift, the spheres near the top will roll and fill in gaps before the new images come in.

Each winning cascade will fill in the Magic Meter. When certain milestones on the meter are reached, a different feature will trigger. Features include extra drops with more Wilds and symbol swaps.

Landing 3 bonus symbols will award 10 extra drops. During these drops, the Magic Meter won’t reset after each drop.
