Starburst is a Net Entertainment powered video slot with 5 reels and 10 paylines. You can play from as little as 10p a spin to £100 a spin. This is one of NetEnt’s most popular slots and it’s about time I reviewed it. Starburst mixes vibrant colours and has an arcade theme to it. It’s fast paced and nothing like you’ve seen before.
It’s a visually beautiful slot game with brilliantly lit jewels on display. It has a rich soundtrack too giving it a cosmic feel to it. It doesn’t have a Free Spins feature but you can win both ways and has an expanding Starburst wild which will dazzle you. When they appear on either of the 3 middle reels, they will expand over the entire reel and remain for up to 3 re-spins (so free spins). The possibility for big wins are astronomical (excuse the pun).
It’s known as the Starburst Wild feature where Starburst wilds expand on reels 2, 3 and 4 to cover the entire reel. The other reels will respin. If a new Starburst wild appears during the re-spin, it expands and holds in place together with previously expanding Starburst wilds for yet another re-spin. The feature only ends when no new Starburst Wilds appear during a re-spin.
If you manage to get 3 expanding Starburst Wilds, you can win pretty big – there’s up to £50,000 on offer! Most of the wins will come in the base game though as the screen lights up for win presentations with various combinations. It’s a unique game in that sense and I’ve managed to win 300 times my stake on a few occasions now. The fact it’s so different and the possibility for huge wins is what makes Starburst one of the most played slots online.
Starburst is a 5 reel 10 payline video slot powered by Net Entertainment. Playable from 10p to £100 a spin, this game is one of the most played online slots in Europe. It’s also the most popular NetEnt slot. It has a space/arcade theme with quick spinning reels and very unique in its appearance – it’s quite mesmerising.
The game has a smooth soundtrack which grips you as well as beautiful diamonds and jewels that encapsulate you. That’s the only way I can explain it to be honest. Anyway, unlike most NetEnt-powered slots, there is no free spins feature. However, this game is all about the Starburst wild which can appear on the 3 middle reels.
This is called the Starburst Wild feature and is triggered when a Starburst wild symbol appears on any of the 3 middle reels. When it does, the wild will expand to take over that particular reel. The other reels then respin to give you a chance of winning. If another Starburst wild appears on the other 2 middle reels, it will become sticky and give you another re-spin. You can get 3 Starburst wild reels in total with up to 3 re-spins available. This feature stops when you get no more new Starburst wild symbols.
As mentioned, this game is fast paced and quite addictive. I’ve managed to win over 200 times my stake from getting 2 expanding Starburst wilds and over 450 times my stake with 3 expanding Starburst wilds. There’s a top prize of £50,000 available per spin so you need luck on your side though.
This game is medium to high variance I would say with most the big wins coming in the base game I would say – you do get quite a lot of smaller wins though so you need to be patient. All I can say is that this game is different to anything you’ve ever seen and makes it unique and appealing.
I didn’t quite get it initially but can see why its NetEnt’s most played slot game. I prefer more traditional slots such as Piggy Riches or Dead or Alive (and they are high variance) but if you like space/cosmic themes, you should try Star Trek by WMS Gaming which is brilliant.
