Starburst is one of many slot games created by Net Entertainment. It is a 5 reel video slot which has three rows and as such 10 paylines. This is the most popular online slot game that has ever been created, with an arcade feel that is enjoyed by many.
It is a low to medium variance game. The slot comes with an RTP of 96.09%, a pretty standard number for an online slot these days.
There is no specific theme to this colourful slot in that it doesn’t have a genre to it. It is a visually strong game however, with a catchy soundtrack so it is a very uplifting and motivating game that makes any gamer want to give it a try. You can play the game on desktop but also on iOS and Android devices, with the game working just as well on both of them.
This is a fast-paced game which carries seven symbols throughout. There are five different coloured jewels, blue, purple, orange, green and yellow, a Lucky red 7 and the bar, all of which form the multiple payout options.
The 10 paylines available on this slot mean that you can play the game for as little as 10p per spin, with the maximum being $/€/£100 on any spin. It is a low to medium variance machine as mentioned earlier, another thing that makes it so popular.
Once you have loaded up your bet and got the reels spinning it is all about the winning. The first thing to point out is that this game comes with win both ways technology, allowing you to get winning combinations that start on reel 1 and on reel 5.
Wins come if you match three or more symbols up on a payline. The purple and blue jewels are worth the least, earning you 0.5, 1 or 2.5x your stake for 3, 4, or 5 icons respectively. The Bar is worth the most. This returns 5, 20 or 25 times your initial bet.
Although this is a really popular slot game, there is only the one feature, which unlike a lot of machines is not a free spins one. Instead, it is a ‘wilds’ option. The Starburst wild is an icon which substitutes all over symbols and can only be found on reels 2, 3 and 4. One of these icons activates the feature.
This wild will ensconce the entire reel giving you a wild reel. That stays locked and you get a free spin. Should another Starburst wild appear the same move takes place. It is possible to fill all three reels with Starburst wild icons and get three free spins. That gives you every chance of filling the win line with the Bar icon and should you get that on all five reels you will get a payout of 500 times your stake.
There are no hidden intricacies to the Starburst slot, which is one of the reasons why it is so popular and has stood the test of time as far as online slots are concerned. The simple gameplay and relatively low variance are perfect for gamers of all kinds.
