Berryburst is a fresh shot of fruity flavour from those purveyors of quality slots Net Ent. We find ourselves caught in a jelly-like world where mouth-watering fruit crowd the reels and all for our money-making benefit- oh and did I mention that this puppy comes with a cluster pays mechanism? Kerching! And that’s before we get to all the Wild benefits of this summer infused slot game. Did anyone say lemonade?
This is a game that literally looks good enough to eat, the graphics are top notch as you’d expect from NetEnt’s smart guys and gals- we’d say it’s on a par with other masterpieces like Microgaming’s Moby Dick slot machine and Elk’s Wild Toro.
Not only are we bathed in an orange and pink world like a yummy desert but better still; where delectable fruit spin temptingly in front of us. The background to the reels is a little like sitting in the middle of a fruit cocktail and getting paid for it! Some games just look even better on mobile (like Fortunium for instance). Berryburst is another one of those games.
Now, it’s time to make a mint, or should that be a lime? Anyway, to make money on this slot you need the icons to land both vertically and horizontally- that’s the cluster pays element at work, we’re looking for groupings not pay lines. If you can get five icons to group or “cluster” then you can expect a fruity shot straight into your wallet!
If you’re familiar with NetEnt’s other games you might be familiar with their other Cluster pay game including confusingly, Berryburst MAX which uses this same clever device. Berryburst is the first time that the 5 reels, 3 row format has been combined with cluster pay by those clever clogs at NetEnt. And you might well feel familiar with the theme and that’s because there are similar games out their like Eyecon’s Heartburst slot and Stardust. The original and biggest is probable NetEnt’s own Straburst, however.
Now let’s get back to the berries- on this game, the reels are invisible to allow for the maximum fruit-tastic visual experience and while you’re spinning you are blasted with some very upbeat and uplifting music. Just the ticket when you’re facing a slot that’s like having an effervescent eye party.
So how you ask do we make some hard cash? Well, that’s easy; spin the reels and try to get that cash-heavy fruit salad to do some work for you.
The high value icons of play are our friends from the fruit bowl, the top scorer is that juicy favourite the raspberry, (5 in a row will earn you a killer x 500 your stake), as well as orange segments, blueberries and limes.
The slightly lower value icons are the heart, spade and diamond of the card deck caught up in uplifting bubbles!
Wildly good fun!
Berryburst is a game where the Wild is king, just keep your peepers open for a refreshing ice cube icon. This fresh friend lands and does everybody’s favourite, it expands covering an entire reel and then it goes one better, and trigger a nifty re-spin.
Now if Lady Luck is with your game, and you hook another Wild or more during that free spin, then you can just go and earn yourself another free spin with that expanded Wild sticking about for the monkey-making fun. Just imagine the mega bucks you could score if you’re able to land five of those raspberries and keep retriggering the free spins- wow- you’d need a wheel barrow to carry the dosh with 1,868 times your stake on the table!
NetEnt’s Berryburst is a shot of summer and a hefty load of cash and this newby on the block, with its money-making cluster pays mechanism, is frankly a pleasure to play. If you’re not hooked by the cluster pays you will be by those expanding and re-spinning Wilds- oh and there’s even a gamble feature if you’re really up for a higher volatility spin. A big thumbs up!
