Seven years after the launch of Starburst, the video slot that has since consistently racked up the most spins every year, online casino solutions techno-wizards NetEnt launched a sequel – BerryBURST™, a heady medley of winning flavours that will put you in a spin with a top potential win of 1868x stake. The accent is on staying chilled with a cocktail of juicy fruits enlivened by a bouquet of winning slot mechanisms like Cluster Pays™, Wild substitutions, expanding Wilds on all reels and Re-Spins. If you’re serious about playing for money on mobile or desktop, this slot is bursting with possibilities – a single spin can net you a top win of 250x stake, which can rise to as much as 500x on a re-spin when the screen is full of Wilds. If this isn’t enough to get you playing at the ultimate Vegas casino - Vegas Palms - then we don’t know what is!
BerryBURST™ doesn’t tell a story - it is completely self-contained. Against a colourful background, the symbols fall through a liquid medium to the irresistibly cool, funky sound of a steel dance band. We’re far too immersed to see what island we’re on ... Maintaining a tenuous connection with the playing cards traditional to casino slot games, the lower-value symbols are a violet diamond, a yellow spade and bright red heart, each suspended at the centre of a gummy-looking globe. The 3D style graphics are on point – these globes are so vivid and fresh, you want to reach out and squeeze them – or pop them in your mouth. They certainly seem edible! But their freshness is as nothing to the main attraction. The fruit is picked out in such clean, crisp, fresh contours that you can almost smell and taste the tartness of the orange and lime wedges, the grapes and raspberries so juicy they look like they’ll burst in your mouth.
Sadly, you can’t actually eat the fruit – but it could refresh your bank account, seeing that even the lowly diamonds are worth 1000x stake if they fill the screen, while a screenful of raspberries weighs in at a luscious 5000x stake.
Even cooler than the fruit, the all-important Wild symbol is a glowing W embedded in a cube of ice. No Scatters in this game – the Wild is all that matters.
Play is simplicity itself. Set your betting level from 1 to 10, select a coin value from 0.10 to 2, and click Spin. Advanced Autoplay allows you to stop the game on any win, when a single win exceeds a specified amount, or when your cash increases or decreases by a specified amount. The Return To Player is a decent 96.56%. All devices are supported for desktop and mobile casino gaming.
The basic winning mechanism of this casino slot is Cluster Pays – land a cluster of 5 or more of the same symbol for a win. To form a cluster, symbols must be horizontally or vertically adjacent to their counterparts.
When 6 or more Wilds cluster, they only substitute for symbols on either side of them. Wilds can only form their own cluster when 15 of them fill the screen, for a win of 5000x stake.
The heart and soul of BerryBURST™ is that glowing, ice-cold Wild. Appearing anywhere on the reels in the main game and Re-Spins, Wilds substitute for all symbols. When one or more land in the main game, the ice explodes and the Wilds expand up and down the whole reel to trigger a Re-Spin, staying in position as the rest of the reels spin again. At the end of the Re-Spin, any new Wilds similarly expand and your wins are added up. If one or more Wilds land on any reel during Re-Spins, another Re-Spin is triggered.
