Starmania is 5 reel slot by NextGen Gaming. You kind of get the feeling when you first see this game that it's going to be the same as NetEnts Starburst.
Let's see if that's the case in my full review on this slot.
STAKES, PAYLINES & SYMBOLS
The paylines are fixed at 10 for Starmania, so that just leaves you with the choice of what stake to play at. The minimum to start the reels spinning is 10p, whilst the maximum bet is a crazy £500!
The paytable is below if you would like to see what symbols are the best and worst payers, there are stacked wilds on this slot on reels 2, 3 and 4. These substitute for all other symbols except the bonus.
It's the same as Starburst with how this slots paylines work, as long as you have a connection on a payline of 3 or symbols, you can win both left to right and right to left on the reels.

FREE SPINS FEATURE
3 BONUS SYMBOLS TO TRIGGER THE FEATURE ON STARMANIA SLOT
10 FREE GAMES AWARDED FOR TRIGGERING THE FEATURE
To trigger the free spin feature you need 3 or more bonus symbols to land anywhere in view, this will award you 10 free spins. If you hit 4 or 5 bonus symbols you will just receive a larger cash amount for initiating the feature, no extra games will be awarded.
This feature can be re-triggered during the free spins, by again landing 3 or more of the bonus symbols anywhere in view.
EXTRA WILDS ADDED DURING THE FREE SPINS ROUND
As each spin of the free games takes place, extra wilds will be added to reels 2, 3 and 4. In total 30 more wild symbols will be added to those reels, on the right hand side of the screen you can see how many have currently been added.
Of course here the dream scenario is to get stacked wilds on reels 2, 3 and 4 with premium paying symbols on reels 1 and 5. It's going to be a nice looking win if that happens.

If you're a fan of Starburst then you're probably going to like this slot as well, there are a few similarities between the two, with Starmania having the added extra of the free spins bonus.
Those of you who like slots that pay both ways as well might find this an interesting game.
Not one of my favourite slots from NextGen, but if you like any of the above then it's worth checking out.
