Starburst is one of those big games that you have probably heard about- you know like Thunderstruck 2, Gonzo’s Quest and the Gladiator slot.
It must be one of NetEnt’s most famous games and it continues to be really popular mainly due to its mesmerising graphics and game-play.
There aren’t that many bonus features on this game- it’s more of a simple game like the Twin Spin slot, but when the Starburst wilds hit, the game explodes into life like a supernova and you can get some really nice runs on it.
This is a low variance game, so if you like your wins ticking over frequently, you’ll enjoy it.
Let’s take a look at the game in more detail.
How to Play Starburst
You’ll notice that there are 10 pay-lines on the game. It’s up to you how many you bet- and this will affect the variance and win frequency obviously.
Then you select your bet level. Level 2 is twice the bet of level 1, level 3 is three times and so on. You can also adjust the coin value.
The big story on this game is the Starburst Wilds which show up on the middle 3 reels. They are wild, of course, but they also expand over the entire reel AND trigger a re-spin.
You can see up to 3 re-spins if you keep landing these tasty little stars. This is a feature we’ve seen on quite a few games from Net Ent including the Divine Fortune slot machine and Dazzle Me. It’s obviously popular with the punters!
The highest paying symbol is the gold BAR symbol, then it’s 7s, diamonds, emeralds, rubies, sapphires and finally purple amethysts.
And that is pretty much the Starburst slot! A well constructed game that is fun to play. Sometimes, it’s the simpler things in life that are the most enjoyable. This game also has a Megaways slot version.
Win Both Ways
The other very cool thing about the Starburst slot, is that you can line up winning combinations from left to right (from reel 1) AND from right to left from reel 5. We like!
Like any good NetEnt slot, Starburst has a pretty powerful Automatic spin console. You can program in up to 1000 spins and set criteria for stopping (which we would advise). So you can set the game to stop on any win, if a win exceeds a certain amount (take profit), if cash increases by a certain amount if if cash decreases by a certain amount (stop loss).
One thing that the designers have done very well with this game, is to adapt it for mobiles and tablets. We have a mobile demo here for you to test out if you are on a phone.
They call the mobile version Starburst Touch, for obvious reasons, and it’s one of those games that actually looks better on a smaller screen- probably because it’s so simple.
Starburst™ is a really vibrant game that will make you feel like you are in an arcade. If yuu enjoy an energetic, high paced game- you’ll love it. The Starburst Wild really adds something to the game and is an innovative twist in a feature that you will see in most slots.
And because these expanded wilds can cement in and trigger up to 3 free spins, they can also be pretty lucrative. Play Starburst on your desktop, your laptop or your mobile- it looks great on all sizes of screens.
The published return to player (RTP%) for the Starburst slot is 96.1%
