Undoubtedly one of the most popular games in the entire NetEnt catalogue, Starburst takes an addictive block-busting concept and turbocharges it with expanding wilds and free re-spins.
Featuring five reels, 10 paylines and wins that pay from right-to-left as well as left-to-right, Starburst is a simple enough game to master but packs in plenty of excitement thanks to the promise of huge combination wins and a regular base game jackpot of 50,000 coins.
A brightly coloured game featuring dazzling gems, golden bar logos and lucky sevens, Starburst actually features a fairly traditional slot theme but significantly jazzes it up with the help of some awesome animations and a thumping soundtrack. The game whizzes by at a phenomenal pace, with all winning paylines being greeted by a series of “starburst” explosions and a ticking combo metre.
Given the game’s popularity, players might be surprised to hear that Starburst only includes one bonus feature – but when they learn what it is, they’ll soon discover why that’s more than enough.
Indeed, the slot’s main draw comes in the form of the Starburst Wilds which appear on the central three reels. Whenever this happens, the wild will expand to fill the reel, with a re-spin awarded to generate bonus wins. Should another wild appear during said re-spin, this process will repeat up to a maximum of three times, with the two-way paylines really coming into their own during this feature.
Aside from the expanding wilds one of the main reasons for Starburst’s popularity is its sheer user functionality. The game is refreshingly uncomplicated, with players being presented with buttons to control the number of active paylines, the level of their bet and the coin value they want to play for. When combined, the latter two options on this list make the slot playable from £0.01 to £100.00 a spin, with all base game payouts being viewable via a button situated at the left hand site of the screen.
As we’ve stressed time and time again, Starburst is one of the most popular titles in the entire NetEnt catalogue – and for good reason too. The game is bright and colourful, the animations are slick and speedy and the bonus feature is more than a match for anything else in the industry. These three factors coupled with the game’s sheer simplicity make it a great choice for discerning players.
