Constellation Slot Machine Overview
The beauty of this game knows no bounds, from the background to the symbols, everything is well designed and theme related. The game is sitting above what looks like a Greek reflection pond surrounded by stone pillars from the same era.
From the minute the game starts you see the most popular of the constellations displayed around the reel playing space. The most prominent of the four that make the background their home is the Lion representing Leo. He's a work of art, majestically watching the goings on of the pixies and other constellations as they appear on the screen.
The background behind the reels is a beautiful purplish blue night sky complete with a shooting star that appears to be flying across the reels different times throughout the game play.
The reels are framed in by a green vine with blooming morning glories found randomly around the vine. The symbols on the reels appear in their own framed in square.
All of these features work well together to build one of the most beautifully crafted games we've ever come across.
One of the biggest downfalls for this game is the soundtrack. Yes the soundtrack is mystical and goes well with the theme of the game but it's more of a hindrance to the game in our opinion.
Having music that's theme related is only one important part of selecting a soundtrack for the game. 777igt should've gotten some extra opinions on this one. The music is so overpowering on this game you'll want to mute it as soon as it kicks on. Some may enjoy the track but we found it to be incredibly nerve racking and it didn't last long before we couldn't take it any longer.
This game, like many other of the 777igt games, has a limited amount of animations. Each of the symbols has their own designated animation that's triggered when the symbol is a part of a winning combination. Other than that the animations lay in the background and in the bonus game.
In the background of the game you find many different animations going on. Some of the constellations that are represented around the reels seem to be floating in the air, plus you have butterflies that flutter back and forth across the title. Don't forget the shooting star that appears every once in a while, so keep your eyes open so you don't miss it.
The bonus game has a little more animation involved but nothing over the top or exciting. All in all constellations is a game that doesn't need animations that show up in the actual game and even with the minimal animations the game is still fun and exciting to play.

Constellation Slot Extra Feature
To keep with all of their games 777igt loaded down Constellations with the special features. Some of these features may seem familiar if you have ever played a 777igt game before and some may be new. The special features are usually what gets people's attention and keeps them playing the game so having 3 jackpots alone is a draw, but they went ahead and added 4 more features to go along with the jackpots.
The jackpots come in three different sizes.
Gives the biggest pay out of the game. You must get five of the Moonlit Grotto symbols to trigger this big win. This jackpot can only be won if you meet these guidelines.
You have to get five of the shooting stars through the sky symbols. This jackpot won't have as big a payout as the Mega but it's still a good chunk of change.
This jackpot can be won when you get five of the kneeling girl symbols on the reels at the same time. Just like its name you win a smaller pay out if you win this jackpot, but who really cares as long as you win right?
The other special features available in the game might be a little more familiar to most players. You have a wild symbol that's represented by a setting crescent moon. It subs for all of the regular symbols in the game. Just like most other wild symbols it won't sub for the scatter, bonus, free spin, or any of the jackpot symbols.
Here's where the game can get a little confusing. It has two different features that are represented by virtually the same symbol with small differences. The scatter symbol is a blue zodiac that gives you a multiplied total bet when found on a winning pay line.
The second feature that uses the zodiac is the free spin symbol. This symbol looks exactly like the scatter except it's green in color and when it appears on the reels the word free blinks across it. When you get three or more of these symbols on the reels you're awarded free spins. The amount of spins you win is based on the number of symbols on the reels. The spins start automatically and continue until all of the free spins have completed.
777igt didn't leave anything out in this game so we can't forget the bonus game. Constellation has a bonus game that's triggered when you receive three or more of the bonus symbol anywhere on the reels. The symbol used to represent the bonus symbol is a group of four colorful zodiac symbols. When you trigger the bonus game you're taken to a different screen where you spin a wheel and get awarded a prize matched to the zodiac that you land on. You get two spins each time the game is triggered.
All these special features make it hard to walk away from the game without wanting to come back for more.
Constellation has 50 pay line options. These pay lines aren't fixed which allow you to change the amount of pay lines being played each spin. When you place your wager it's divided up to cover the selected amount of pay lines.
One thing that's different from most other games is that 777igt put a minimum limit on the pay lines. Yes you can choose how many you want to play but you can't go any higher than 50 or lower than 10. To some people this may seem like a problem but it really is just a way for 777igt to help their players maximize their time playing the game.
Pay lines are there to increase the number of ways you can win while paying a slot. You want to play all of the available lines at all times to secure your winning ability. The games do allow you to change the number of lines but we don't recommend using this feature.
We don't know about you but it's our luck the minute we take a line away it's where the biggest pay out of the game lands and there isn't anything we can do about. So if you have luck like ours make sure to do everything you can to counteract the luck and this game gives you that chance.
This game offers you the ability to change the value of your bet after each spin. The range of betting is set from .01 to $1 per spin.
These betting options allow for anyone interested in playing the game to come and take a relaxing trip to the stars. Even the most conservative gamblers should find this game to be just right for them.

The symbols for the game are beautiful and ethereal and add to the experience when playing. Our favorite of all the symbols is the Moonlit Grotto. It reminds us of something you'd read about in a book or see in a movie.
Together the bonus, scatter, wild, and free spin symbols just build on the already great game. Each of these special features adds chances for you to win more cash. Keep your eyes open and don't miss a single minute when you're playing this game.
The jackpots just keep adding to the excitement of the game. With this game you don't just get one jackpot; you get a chance at three different ones. All three have great pay outs that just keep accumulating the longer you play.
777igt hit it out of the park with this game. Let its relaxing feel and great special features give you the game experience of a life time. Plus you get to see what all the hype is about when it comes to the constellations.
