Starburst is a unique slot by NetEnt. The slot has an impressive arcade feel and is based on expanding Starburst Wilds. This slot is a 5 reel, 10 payline machine and also offers several other features. The slot has a classic user interface that is displayed in HD and has exceptional graphics and sound. The slot is a visually beautiful casino game with decoratively lit jewels on its display. The slot does not offer players free spins but instead the wilds on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th reel expand covering the entire reel and consequently providing players with 3 re-spins.
How to Play
Since the slot comes with only 5 reels and has only 10 paylines, playing the slot is not overwhelming to most gamers. The coin betting ranges in the slot vary £0.01-£1.00. The total number of coins that can be wagered per line is 10. Therefore, the minimum wager per line, per spin in the slot is £0.01 and the maximum wager is £100.00 for one full game.
The lower paying icons in Starburst slot are made up of blue, purple, and orange gemstones. Green and yellow constitute the fair pay icons. If 5 icons are struck, the 7 icon offer a 120 coin total payout. In addition to this, the top paying standard icon (symbol) in the slot is the golden bar icon and is worth 250 coins when 5 icons are hit on the same payline.
The greatest negative aspect about Starburst slot is that it has only one special bonus feature. This feature is the expanding wild feature that allows players to use 3 re-spins. Other additional features in the slot include the possibility of winning in any direction (right-left or left-right). However, this feature does not compensate for the absence of special bonus features like in other slot machines.
The Wild Symbol and Wild Re-Spins
The starry icon is the wild symbol in the slots. This icon is a multi-colored star and has the power to substitute itself for all the other symbols in the slot. This wild symbol (also known as Starburst Wild Icon) appears only on the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th reels and expands throughout the entire reel.
The wild re-spins feature is triggered when the wild symbol spreads itself on an entire wild. The maximum number of re-spins that can be triggered by an expanding wild symbol is limited to 3 re-spins.
Starburst slot has a non-progressive jackpot of 2,500 coins that pays a maximum of £2,500. It is possible to win this jackpot amount by accumulating 5 golden bar icons (on a pay line) which multiply the £10 line bet by 250 times. The winning possibilities in Starburst slot machine are unlimited especially for pro-players with outstanding playing skills.
Ideally, Starburst Slot by NetEnt is a simplistic slot that boasts of decent graphics and classic music; both of which ensure that the slot is not boring and retro looking. The slot lacks in most additional features such as multipliers, scatter symbols, and free spins found in high-end slot machines. However, the availability of varying betting options based on different budgets makes the slot a fairly hypnotizing slot that is equally addictive.
