Microgaming, the leading software provider to Australian online casinos, has perfected the art of creating Valentine’s Day themed online pokies. Period costumes, romantic settings and iconic Valentine’s Day symbols are the hallmark of these pokies. Starlight Kiss is one of the best and is highly recommended. It can be played on the desktop software of Microgaming online casinos like Casino Mate, Royal Vegas and 32Red.
In Starlight Kiss the reels are set in a garden under the starlit sky. The main symbols are the lover and his lady. They pay out in both like and mixed combinations on active paylines. The win animations are delightful. The lover presents a rose and the lady graciously accepts the gift. In the mixed combination payout animation the lovers kiss under the starlit sky. The other thematic symbols are the love letter written with a quill and the box of chocolates. The game logo is the wild symbol and it also awards the highest line payouts.
The mansion is the scatter symbol. It awards payouts multiplied by the total bet. There is another masterful win animation involved. A light in one of the rooms comes on and some romantic interlude can be seen inside. Three or more scatter symbols anywhere on the reels award 14 free spins at doubled payouts. Microgaming often has this number of free spins in its Valentine’s Day themed online pokies. The free spins can be retriggered. The bonus symbol is the lovers in an embrace. When you get this symbol simultaneously on reels 2, 3 and 4, the bonus game on the second screen is triggered. The lovers are seated on a garden bench surrounded by ten romantic items. You pick three of them to earn coins and hearts. The hearts are entered into a romance meter and you get a bonus multiplier depending on the meter reading. Then the multiplier earned is applied to the coins won to work out your bonus for the round.
Starlight Kiss is a 30 selectable paylines online pokie in the standard 5×3 structure. You can wager up to 20 coins per payline. The coin size varies from AU$0.01 to AU$1.00. The maximum total bet per spin works out to AU$600, which is great for high roller online casino players. The top line payout is 2000 coins. The next highest line payout is only 700 coins. So you can expect some volatility in this online pokie.
