If you’ve played online slots before then it’s more than likely that you’ve come across Starburst. It was released back in 2012 by game provider NetEnt and has grown to become one of the most famous online slots ever to be made.
Starburst is NetEnt’s most popular slot which may surprise some given that the game lacks standard bonus rounds and free spins that are common with other slot games. However, the gameplay is excellent and huge wins are possible from the base game by landing Starburst Wilds.
Starburst is a simple, yet attractive game to play and has somewhat of an 80’s arcade feel about it.
The slot has 10 paylines over 5 reels and 3 rows with wins possible from both ends of the board.
Players can set stakes ranging from as little as £0.10 all the way up to £100 a spin and the low-medium volatility of the slot has made it a popular choice with the more casual slots player given that wins land very often.
Along with the mesmerising graphics, the soundtrack to Starburst is another reason why the game has gained such a legendary place in the slots hall of fame. The spacey background music is complemented with cosmic sounds as the reels are spun, resulting in a very enjoyable playing experience.
The lower paying symbols consist of gems of which there are five in total, all different colours. There are two higher-paying symbols which are the red Seven and the Bar symbol.
Although there isn’t technically a bonus round on Starburst, there is a base game feature from which big wins are possible.
When the Starburst Wild symbol lands on any reel, the entire reel turns wild. On top of that, the reels are respun without any fee with the wild wheel remaining.
Should a second Starburst Wild land on the respin, that reel too is made wild and once again, the reels are respun without charge with the two wild reels held.
Huge wins are possible when multiple wild reels are active.
The max win per spin is 500x which isn’t as much as some other slots but wins are quite often.
Starburst has an RTP of 96.09% which is around average for many of the most popular slots.
The game has a low-medium variance which means that wins often land regularly but are not astronomical.
