Starburst Slot is a fast-paced space-themed video slot game with 5 reels, 3 rows and 10 fixed paylines. The standard base icons are five sparkling jewels that ascend in order of value through purple, blue, orange, green and yellow colours that really dazzle on an HD screen. The jewels are complemented by the old-school “seven” and “bar” symbols from the days of the “one-armed bandit” that was the staple of the Vegas casino before casinos went online. The Starburst symbol is wild. The game has a Return to Player (RTP) of 96.1% with bets ranging from a minimum of 10 credits up to a maximum of 100. You can change the Bet Level from 1 to 10 and the Coin Value from 0.01 to a maximum of 1.00 in your currency, so the minimum bet is 0.10 with a Bet Level of 1 and a Coin Value of 0.01 and the maximum bet is 100 with a Bet Level of 10 and a Coin Value of 1.00.
Once upon a time everyone was playing online games that were just copies of the physical slot machines in Vegas. Then NetEnt, the international online casino gaming solutions provider, brought out Starburst Slot and the entire online gaming world changed – just like after the first Moon landing. Rather than bring out another boring digital facsimile of a physical machine, NetEnt spun the reels of creativity and created an instant classic like nothing ever seen before. Visually stunning, even hypnotic, with a great sci-fi soundtrack that perfectly accompanies the fantastic space-themed graphics, Starburst is both utterly simple and compelling to play. No wonder it remains one of premium digital enterprise NetEnt’s most popular and recognised mobile casino games around the world.
Although only 10 paylines might not seem very much for a mobile casino game today, a win-both-ways feature appears next to the reels when you start spinning. This feature doubles your chances by allowing you to form winning combinations from both sides – right to left and left to right – for no extra fee. Then there’s the Starburst Wild. Whenever the multi-coloured star icon appears, it triggers a special that can net you the biggest win this casino game has to offer – a jackpot of 50 000 coins. The Starburst Wild can only appear on reels two, three and four, but when it lands, it substitutes for the other symbols to form a winning combination. It’s also an expanding Wild that expands to cover the whole reel on all three middle rows and setting off a re-spin once it has expanded completely. What’s more, every extra Starburst Wild symbol that shows up during a free spin also expands and triggers more free spins until there are no more Wilds on the screen. This gives you a much bigger chance not only of forming winning combinations but also spinning more wilds.
Starburst Slot’s simple design conceals a winning trick that spells good news for your wins. Although the number of icons (8) is comparatively low for a mobile casino game, by some quirk of mathematics it is actually a bonus because there is a much bigger chance that the symbols will land in prize-winning combinations every time you spin. This is when being able to win both ways really makes a difference. You also get a bigger pay-out for blocks of symbols, like a triangle of nine symbols starting from the corners.
