NetEnt’s Starburst slot has earned itself a slice of slot history as a game that is massively popular among players. Is this the most famous slot on the Internet? It could be. The game comes with a flavour of old school game play with plenty of new age tech thrown in.
As a monkey that likes to be entertained, my first impressions of this classic high tech slot were good. I like a colourful game (the Copy Cats slot is another example) and Starburst certainly delivers on that front. I fell for the game’s knock out looks, but is there more to this game than flashy lights and whizzy sounds? Let’s take a look, shall we?
This stylish gem-laden game could bring you some nice cash rewards thanks to the kaleidoscopic Starburst Wild. This game is all about trying to boost your bank balance with a head-turning 50,000 coins! And it’s all about the Wilds.
Play Starburst and you’ll feel like you’ve just had the red carpet rolled out for you. This is a game that’s a glossy little number and full of sparkle, speed, animation and colour that draws you in. It’s no exaggeration to say that this game raised the bar for everyone and paved the way for games like 1429 Uncharted Seas and Fortunium. Well played NetEnt!
The game is set against a purple background with transparent reels where the shining icons take center stage. It’s a mixture of traditional fruit machine symbols and gems stones that wouldn’t look out of place on the Queen’s crown.
When you pull together a win, especially a sizable one, the slot will show its appreciation in a carnival of light and sound. It’s nice to have your achievements celebrated!
The action skips along with up-tempo electro-pop which suits the game down to the ground. A perfect pairing of sound and vision.
Try and boost your bottom line over three rows, five reels and 10 pay-lines. While 10 pay-lines doesn’t sound much in the modern ways to win era, its all about the size of the rewards. This game can reward from time to time in explosions of action, and that’s what makes it such a popular game along with the Mermaids Millions slot and Foxin’ Wins.
Take a spin for 10p or 10c or up your bets if you want to. Unlike many other slots, this astro-adventure pays both ways: from left to right and vice versa.
The high paying symbol is the golden BAR. The sharp eyed among you will notice that the lucky number 7 is also on the reels as well as five brightly coloured gemstones.
The Starburst slot’s Wild is a rainbow coloured star. Watch out though, as this show-stealing symbol only puts in an appearance on the middle three reels. When the Wild lands it expands to cover the whole reel and even better, this game changer also nets you a free spin (with a limit of three).
I try to find fault every time I play the Starburst slot, but I have only good things to say about this popular game. It’s a low variance game, so you should see lots of action when you play it- expect more frequent, lower pay-outs with (hopefully) the odd Starburst explosion. It come with a 50,000 coin jackpot, a rewarding Wild, a sprinkle of fruit machine nostalgia and NetEnt’s smart mechanics behind the scenes.
A recipe for slot success. A Swedish peach of a game.
