Starburst Slots

Starburst is definitely not your average video slot as the game is characterized by the spirit of innovation Net Entertainment has become famous for. Appearing on desktop, mobile and tablet in 2012, the five reel ten payline slot has a fairly simple game play, and it does not contain too many perks and benefits, but the two special features that are available will blow your mind and result in some amazing payouts.

How to play Starburst

After you have selected the preferred bet size, you only need to press spin, max bet or autoplay to start and ensure you receive as many winning combinations as possible. A payout will occur when at least three matching symbols are found on an active payline, either left to right or right to left. While Scatter icon is not supported, Starburst Wild is the only special symbol in the game and it only appears on reels 2, 3 and 4. The icon then expands to cover an entire reel and triggers up to three re-spins at no extra cost.

Betting Options and Payout

Players can use lines button to select between 1 and 10 paylines to be active, but the maximum number is obviously recommended, especially as it will not set you back a great deal. Meanwhile, they can further increase their bet value by choosing coin denomination from $0.01 to $1 as well as select up to 10 coins per line. One look at the Starburst paytable will tell you that payouts in the main game are far from impressive, but there is a reason for that. Winning combinations will be occurring more frequently than elsewhere thanks to Win Both Ways and Wild Re-Spins, meaning there will be plenty of credits going your way after all.

Symbols and Extra Features

The action takes place in outer space where sparkling geometrical objects light up the reels, with yellow, green, orange, blue and purple objects resembling gem stones are used to form winning combinations. The presence of Bar and lucky seven symbols features a reference to those old-style fruit machines. Win Both Ways may not be one of the most exciting extra features out there, but chances are it offers a much better value than any bonus game currently available. It means that winning combinations will occur for at least three matching icons starting from either leftmost or rightmost reel, which should make all the difference in the final count. Starburst Wild appearing on reels 2, 3 and 4 expands to cover an entire reel and it remains in place for an additional re-spin. Should another Wild appear during the re-spin, it will also expand with both of these staying in place for a second re-spin. A third re-spin is awarded if another Wild icon occurs subsequently, where reels 2, 3 and 4 remain Wild for one spin. Starburst Touch launched in December 2012, enabling mobile gamers to enjoy the stunning video slot on the move, with the mobile game looking nothing short of impressive on smartphone and tablet. Tap the spin button to start a highly rewarding adventure and you could win up to 50,000 credits at a time.

Our Verdict

Starburst video slot has taken the gaming world by storm, and it remains one of Net Entertainment's most accomplished works. A simple yet dynamic gaming experience is what you can expect from a five reel ten payline slot that is also available on mobile, but it is the Win Both Ways and Wild Re-Spins features that will ensure players are given a more than fair chance of turning a profit in the long run.
