Are you interested in directing a film or dreaming of winning an Oscar? If you have a passion for the world of film, Capecod’s online video slot “Movie Stars” provides an opportunity to immerse yourself in the industry.
The RTP (return to player) of Movie Stars is 94.50%, which is rather disappointing, and the variance is considered to be low. However, players can still anticipate consistent wins at a steady pace, and even trigger bonus symbols without causing too much harm to their bankroll.
Theme and Gameplay
Instead of the lacklustre ’70s funk beat that seems out of place with the symbols presented, Capecod’s impressive slot game could have been perfectly accompanied by the classic tune “Hooray for Hollywood.”
The symbols, featuring a leather-jacketed hero and a preppy heroine, evoke a ’50s aesthetic, but the presence of a director with a megaphone and 35mm film reels suggest an even earlier era. Although the symbols are well-designed and clear, the game’s creator missed an opportunity to pay homage to the allure of Hollywood’s golden age.
Symbols and Payouts
|Symbol||Payout for 5 of a Kind|
Please note that the payouts above are based on a betting range of 0.25 to 25. The Wild symbol is the highest paying symbol in the game, with a payout of x2000 for 5 of a kind. The Director symbol has a payout of x1000 for 5 of a kind, followed by the Female Lead symbol with a payout of x300 and the Male Lead symbol with a payout of x250. The Camera, Director’s Chair, Light, and Film Reel symbols all have the same payout of x150 for 5 of a kind. Finally, the Megaphone and Film Cutting symbols have the lowest payout of x100 for 5 of a kind.
How to Play The Movie Stars Slot
Although this slot game has simple features, these tips can help you navigate the film set with ease.
Once you open the main screen, look to the left of the dashboard below the reels to adjust the number of coins you want to bet per line. Then, move to the right and set your total bet per line by adjusting the coin value.
To access the pay table, click on the trophy symbol located below the coin window on the left-hand side of the screen. Here, you can scroll down to view descriptions of the special symbols, including wilds, bonus stars, and mystery symbols, as well as thumbnails of the bet ways.
After viewing the pay table, close the screen and click on the “?” symbol for a comprehensive list of the game’s rules.
Free Spins and Bonus Features
Another exciting feature of this game is the chance to trigger the free games feature. However, we were a little disappointed that the free games do not re-trigger, which may be a negative for some players.
Magic Phase Free Spins Feature
Keep an eye out for the film-reel-shaped trophy, which serves as the bonus symbol and appears exclusively on the centre reel. Collect three of these symbols, which can be tracked to the left of the reels, to activate the Magic Phase.
The magic phase grants ten free games, but unfortunately, it cannot be re-triggered. During the Magic Phase, players have the opportunity to earn random multipliers via a mystery symbol that appears on the fifth reel. Additionally, there is a highly rewarding top-paying wild that can substitute for all symbols except for the bonus symbol.
Advantages and Disadvantages
- The game features an entertaining theme.
- Free games can be triggered.
- Players have the chance to win random multipliers.
- The game’s Return to Player (RTP) rate is average at most.
- It’s not possible to re-trigger free games.

Although the rewards of this game are steady, they may not be particularly impressive. The betting range may not be suitable for high rollers, but it provides a gentle introduction to the game for novice players. We recommend taking advantage of this if you’re new to online slots.
The game’s theme is enjoyable, but as previously mentioned, it’s a shame that the graphics and soundtrack fail to capitalize on the wealth of possibilities offered by Hollywood’s golden age.
