Little did the developers at Netent know when they created Starburst that this slot game was soon going to rock the slot world. Even though NetEnt is known for their richly designed and great gameplay online casino games, the popularity of this slot is totally unexpected.
Starburst is created on a reel set comprising 5 reels and 3 rows. There are only 10 paylines in this slot, but the myriad of features available compensates for the lack of paylines. The visuals and graphics are both impressive and rightly complement the theme of the game. Here is a deeper look into the slot.
Starburst Background Information
There is not much to describe the backdrop of Starburst other than it has a dark purplish and black theme. The reels blend perfectly in the background and their borders (on the left and right) are made visible by thick light purple lines. Below the reels you have information on the game. You have green coloured “Autoplay” and “Max Bet” buttons.
On the right of the “Max Bet” button the “Coin Value” is displayed while on the left of the “Autoplay” button the game “Level” can be seen. On the far left beside the “Level” you will see the number of “Lines” played with the “Bet” right on top of this. The “Spin” button lies between the “Autoplay” and “Max Bet” buttons and below this your “Cash”, “Bet” and “Win” details are provided. In addition to this, a large Starburst sign is displayed on top of the reel set.
Reel Set Symbols
This online slot is quite impressive as it comes with a reel set full of symbols designed in 3D graphics. These precious gemstone symbols are five in number and also appear to glitter. You can distinguish the gemstones by their colours. The precious gemstone symbols come in blue, yellow, green, orange and purple colours.
The yellow precious gemstone is the most valuable symbol while the purple one is the least valuable of the symbols. There are also other symbols on the reels such as the regular 7 and Bar icons. The game's logo represents the Wild symbol in Starburst slot.
Betting And Gameplay
In this video slot you can place your bet with as little as £0.01 per spin of the reels. On the other hand the maximum bet allowed per reel spin is £100. The low betting amount makes this online casino slot machine one game to be desired by casual players and low rollers.
As mentioned earlier, you have “Lines” under the reel set. With this you can select the number of paylines you want to become active. The “Level” helps you to set up your game betting level. For the “Coin Value” segment, you get to decide what your preferred coin size is.
To get the game started all you need to do is click on the “Spin” button after you have placed your bets. By clicking on the “Max Bet” button, you will get the reels spinning while making a maximum bet. The “Autoplay” button allows you to get the reels spinning for a predetermined number of times without any interference. There is also NO Progressive play, Bonus game, Mobile play or Free Spins feature.
Winning in entails landing matching symbols from left to right or from right to left on the reels. You can also win when you land blocks of icons on the reels. One symbol that is very useful to boosting your wins is the game's logo Wild symbol. This Wild icon can be seen only on reels 2, 3 and 4. When this Wild symbol lands on any of these reels, it will expand to occupy every symbol present on the reel that it is on.
Players will also be granted one free spin with the Wild symbol frozen in place during the free spin. You could be lucky to land winning combinations that will boost your overall expected payouts. If Wild symbols land on the other reels (i.e. either reels 2, 3 or 4) then you would also have those Wilds expand on their reels to occupy the symbols there. You will also be granted yet another free spin with the Wild frozen on the reels during the free spin to increase your chances of landing combo wins.
To Sum Up
Players can earn a jackpot prize of 50,000x their staked sum when they play Starburst. You can stand a chance of earning this multiplier when you bet with the maximum betting sum allowed (i.e. £100) in the game.
