Developer Arcadem released Starfang on December 3, 2020. This video slot’s basis is an Arthurian legend, featuring the ill-fated Knight Aedan who is battling Morrigan the fiery-breathing wicked dragon to save the alleged Camelot castle—inhabited by King Arthur. “Starfang” is the name of the knight’s sword.
Themes: fantasy, mythology, knighthood, medieval kingdom, sword fighting, and heroism. One symbol (wild) needs three-of-a-kind. Nine symbols (knight Aedan, dragon, flag, castle, A, K, Q, J, 10) need three-of-a-kind, four-of-a-kind, or five-of-a-kind.
Starfang Game Characteristics
Starfang has 25 fixed rightward winning ways, twelve symbols, three to five randomized wilds, two scatters, free games, $0.05 to $1200.00 regular payouts, and fifteen lowly coin sizes with X25 factor.
The skippable starting page describes: the randomly-appearing wilds; and the ten collectible swords or four collectible shields that activate the Starfang’s free games.
Starfang has a translucent, frameless, and unpartitioned 5X3 grid whose illuminated nightly mountainous setting consists of: silhouetted trees in the foreground, where knight Aedan is overlooking a series of the Camelot castle’s pinnacles in the middle ground; and a perched dragon silhouetted in the background.
The Starfang’s coin sizes: $0.01, $0.02, $0.04, $0.05, $0.07, $0.10, $0.15, $0.20, $0.30, $0.50, $0.70, $1.00, $2.00, $3.00, and $4.00.
The Starfang’s fifteen total bets: $0.25 (minimum bet), $0.50, $1.00, $1.25, $1.75, $2.50, $3.75, $5.00, $7.50, $12.50, $17.50, $25.00, $50.00, $75.00, and $100.00 (maximum bet).
Starfang’s two special symbols: the substitute is an ovoid blue-lit fancy “wild”; the free games activator is the collectible blue-lit “scatter” sword named Starfang; and the collectible blue-and-orange “scatter” shield, wherein the knight is peeping.
Starfang’s nine ordinary symbols: the armored knight Aedan, carrying the gray-and-cyan Starfang sword; dragon named Morrigan; crude sword-embedded orange-and-purple flag; off-white Camelot castle; and fiery A, K, Q, J, and 10.
Here are the Starfang’s payouts. Five wilds pay X12. Three Knight Aedan or Dragon Morrigan pay X2; four Knight Aedan or Dragon Morrigan pay X4; and five Knight Aedan or Dragon Morrigan pay X12.
Three Camelot castles or flags pay X2; four castles or flags pay X4; and five castles or flags pay X6. Three A/K pay X0.80, four A/K pay X3.20, and five A/K pay X4.80. Three Q/J/10 pay X0.40, four Q/J/10 pay X2, and five Q/J/10 pay X4.
The regular spins can include three random “wild” lights, while the free games may have up to five random “wild” lights. A landed “scatter” sword is +1 on the blue “? /10” counter above the grid, where a 10/10 sword collection (alternatively, collecting 4/4 shields) prompts 15 free games.
In free games resulting from “scatter” swords: every two random duels between the knight and dragon offer two wilds, with +1 duel offering +1 wild. In free games resulting from “scatter” shields: every two random duels between the knight and dragon offer four wilds, with +1 duel offering +2 more wilds. The maximum X1068 win (100X1068) is $106800.00.
The HTML5 game Starfang software: supports mobile devices and desktops; minimalistic interface with few blue icons, turbo mode, and splash screen; history; and 10-250 auto spins with no limit or X5/X10/X50/X100 loss limits, and X1/X2/X5/X10/X50/X100 single win/balance increase.
Sounds: ambient tense classical instrumental; and dinging, exclamations, snarling dragon, ringing, clanging, swishing, squelching, and tolling effects. The animated 3D graphics: glitter effect; dolly zooming; drizzling; and the knight dueling with, and slaying, the lunging fire-emitting dragon.
