Play Starburst

NetEnt’s Starburst slot has earned itself a slice of slot history as a game that is massively popular among players. Is this the biggest 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 doesn’t like to go with the crowd, I went all out to find the holes in this nostalgic yet high tech slot. We like a colourful game (the Copy Cats slot is another example) and Starburst certainly delivers on this front. Would I fall for this game’s knock out looks, or was there more than meets the eye to this game?

The Basics

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! Let’s take a look

The Graphics

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 to draw you into the entertainment ahead. It’s no exaggeration to say that this game upped the ante 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 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 a royal head.

When you pull together a win, especially a sizable one, expect the slot to show its appreciation in a carnival of light and effects. It’s nice to have your achievements celebrated after all.

You will be rewarded with some up-tempo piano and electronic music which suit the game down to the ground. A perfect pairing of sound and vision.

The Play

Try and boost your bank account’s bottom line over three rows, five reels and 10 pay-lines. While 10 pay-lines doesn’t sound much in the ways to win era, its all about the size of the rewards. This game can reward from time to time in explosions of action. That’s what makes it such a classic game like 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 from left to right and vice versa.

The symbol that pays out highest is a golden BAR. The sharp eyed among you will notice that the lucky number 7 is also on the reels as well as five large 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 rewards a single free spin (with a limit of three).

Monkey Verdict

I tried to find fault every time I went to play Starburst, but I can only say good things about this popular game. This slot is 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.

Now that’s the recipe for slot success. A peach of a game.
