Free Fu Star Slot Machine Game
Oriental theme seems to be the signature mark of Lightning Box software developer and Fu Star is yet another Asia inspired slot, featuring symbols from the Chinese heritage and folklore. On each side of the reels, golden Chinese ornaments are lined, with stars and lanterns on the top and red curtains placed left and right.
Although the theme may appear overly general to a layman, the slot symbols are not just randomly selected and Fu Star is actually based on the Sanding legend of the three star deities – Fu, Lu and Shou, each representing a different principle of a balanced existence: Prosperity, Status and Longevity.
The coin value ranges from $0.01 to $0.10 and the player manually selects the bet level that applies to all of the 25 fixed paylines. If you don't find max bet of $2.5 challenging enough, you can always increase the number of coins per line and select x2, x3, x5 or a x10 wager multiplier, wagering up to $25 on a single spin.
Combinations that consist solely out of the Gold Icon will have the highest value, if formed left to right. Depending on the number of icons, the player can win from 20 to 5,000 coins. Next in line are The Girl and The Vessel symbols which pay up to 2,000 coins for a string of 5 symbols. Unfortunately, the return to player percentage is not provided by the developer.
When 2 of the Star icons appear on the reels from left to right, the Hold 'N Spin Feature will be unlocked. During this mode, the Star icons will change their positions and shift to the very top of the game screen, freezing one of the reels. The rest of the reels will continue to spin for three more times and the feature will either be completed or new Re-spins awarded.
If five of the Star icons land on the reels, the player will initiate Star Pick Bonus. Clicking on the symbol will reveal the number of Free Spins and the bonus round multipliers – up to 10 extra spins and x10 multiplier. An extra perk is that you can try your luck and swap one of the awarded spins and multiplier sets and see if the second choice will reveal a higher number of either spins or multipliers.
Not being provided with the information about the return to player percentage is a bit annoying, so there is no other way to know what to expect than to actually roll up your sleeves and start spinning with the lowest possible betting amount, until you figure out the long term payout frequency.
Second chance Swap feature is a fun option that adds some harmless risk to the game – there isn't really any danger of losing, apart from ending up with a smaller number of Free Spins or a more modest multiplier.

The fact that a piece of information as crucial as RTP is missing from the details which the developer was willing to share with us about Fu Star slot is a major drawback, especially considering the fact that a lot of players are guided by the return to player percentage. Still, this is not a problem that cannot be resolved and once you get around it, you are left with a nice looking slot that has an excellent Free Spins potential and an unique Swap alternative, which is Fu Star's version of the Gamble feature.
