Starburst Slot Review
No matter who you are, if you’ve played online slots – then you’ve heard of NetEnt’s name. We’re getting pretty tired of saying it – but NetEnt is one of the biggest studios in iGaming. If not the biggest – in terms of the quality of their products, at least. And they have made many slots to date. But what’s known as one of their most popular slots to date is Starburst. This game has drawn the attention of thousands of slot players. Be sure to read about it in our review below. If you like this game, you will probably also be interested in the very similar but newer NetEnt release called Berryburst (review here).
Theme of Starburst Slot
The Starburst slot game follows the theme of outer space. You can expect that there will be stars coming out as symbols. There is a fun, new-age music in the background. The background is of purple color mixed with pink. After all – you’re in outer space. The animations are some of the smoothest that we have seen. It’s simply a joy to spin the reels because of this. There are also classic slot symbols like Sevens and BARs. Most of all – there are diamonds in different colors.
We can see why Starburst became so popular a game – when it comes to the theme. Everything is very smooth and on point. But what about Starburst’s gameplay?
Gameplay in the stars of colours
You may be surprised to learn this, but Starburst has a very simple gameplay. In fact, it’s simpler than most modern slot games made by leading studios. All you need to do is pick what kind of bet you will want to make. Then you hit the spin button in the form of two circular arrows. The reels start spinning and you get a new combination of symbols.
The two novel features that came out – for the time – were wins from both ends and the starburst wilds. The starburst wilds come in the form of a star of different colors. And the special feature here is that if you get one, it will expand. It will cover the entire reel where it originally came out. Moreover, you will get a free respin every time you get one of these symbols. And the maximum number of respins is 5. This is a quick way to make some money. By the way, the Starburst wilds come out on the second, third, and fourth reels only.
So, there you have it – these are the main features of Starburst. You can see that one of the main reasons for its popularity is its simplicity. There aren’t many special features – but the ones that are available are executed properly. It’s a highly enjoyable game and a worthy name of the NetEnt classics.
