Playing 5 Star Knockout is fairly simple. Starting bets range from 0.20 to 50 per spin. On the 20 fixed paylines of the 5x4 grid, you can form winning combos. Three or more symbols must appear adjacent to one another, from left to right, on a payline in order to win.
The low paying symbols on the paytable are the four card spades. Three 7s of various colours and a 5 serve as the premium symbols. For five of a kind in a payline, these are worth 2, 3, 4, and 5 times your wager, respectively.
The scatter in the base game is the star symbol, which can appear up to five times anywhere. You need five gathered stars to fill the star metre for any particular symbol, which is located below the grid in symbol-specific Reward Boards. Per bet level, the accumulated stars are saved in between spins.
While the Award Boards are empty, a Bonus Stars feature could activate, adding a random number of stars to randomly selected symbol star metres. In the Win Spin function, which can also be triggered randomly, you keep collecting respins as long as you keep winning.
When a star metre Award Board is full of 5 stars, the Bonus Round begins, and the associated metre-specific symbol is subsequently eliminated from the grid during the feature. A single full star metre offers 5 free spins, while subsequent filled stars during the feature award +2 additional spins. Naturally, this also eliminates the relevant related symbols from the grid, and all bonus round wins will be increased by a random win multiplier of up to x5.
