Starburst Slot Review

Written by - Published by Viking Slots on Wed, 04/10/2017 - 14:36

One of NetEnt’s most enduring and popular classics, Starburst is a true visual and auditory cosmic experience that has captivated slot players since 2012.

Starburst is a vibrant 5 reel, 10 paylines slot aimed at players looking for a highly immersive, straightforward slot. Managing to be both futuristic and retro at once, it features beautiful high end 3d graphics designed to take players on an interstellar adventure and sound design reminiscent of the arcade games of the 80s and 90s. Much like other immensely popular mobile games, Starburst consists of a series of shiny and colorful jewels that the player must arrange in the right combinations in order to win. Along with multicolored jewels, classic casino symbols like 7s and Bar symbols appear, as well as the powerful Starburst symbol.

The Starburst symbol not only turns the entire reel into a Wild Reel, giving you huge possibilities of creating big combinations, but it also triggers a free spin where the Wild reel remains in place, giving you twice the chance of hitting it big. Not only that, but if another Wild comes along during this free spin, it will also turn the reel into a Wild reel and trigger yet another free spin!

Starburst Symbols

Starburst symbols are all different types of colorful space gems, along with a cosmic rebranding of the iconic ‘7’ and ‘Bar’ symbols from classic video slots and the Starburst symbol. A combination of 3 to 5 of them in a row in any of the paylines you are playing will result in a win.

Purple jewel – The lowest paying symbol in the game, getting 5 purple gems in a payline will pay you 25 coins.

Blue jewel – Like the purple jewels, blue gems also pay out 25 coins for a combination of 5.

Orange jewel – Put 5 orange gems together and you’ll be 40 coins richer.

Green jewel – 5 of these emerald gems in a row will pay out 50 coins.

Yellow jewel – The most valuable jewel in the game, 5 yellow gems in a payline pay 60 coins.

7s - Lucky number 7 is a casino classic, and 5 in a row will pay out 120 coins.

Bar – The highest value symbol in the game, getting 5 Bar symbols in a row will pay you 250 coins!

Starburst – The Starburst symbol will act as an expanding Wild. Appearing only on reels 2, 3, or 4, the Starburst symbol will turn the entire reel into a Wild reel, as well as triggering a free spin. The maximum amount of re-spins that can be triggered from Wild symbols is 3.

In-game bonus features

While not exactly a bonus, Starburst features a truly remarkable highlight: a Both-Way win feature. While most slots will only pay out when combinations are achieved in paylines from left to right, Starburst will also payout combinations achieved from right to left. This provides players a lot more opportunities to tally up winning combinations.

As for familiar bonus features, Starburst provides plenty of free spin action thanks to its Starburst Wild. Any time the Starburst symbol appears on the screen it will substitute all of the icons on the reel it appeared in before triggering a re-spin. It is possible to earn up to 3 re-spins if you get 3 consecutive Wild symbols. While 3 re-spins does not seem like much compared to some slots that offer free spins by the dozens, keep in mind that the Both-Way win feature combined with the Wild reels is guaranteed to provide players with more winning combinations than most other free spin rounds out there.

Conclusion

Starburst might be one of NetEnt’s most simple video slots, and yet there’s a reason that players keep coming back to it time and time again despite having no bonus rounds, no progressive jackpots, and only up to 3 free spins that can be triggered – a small amount for most modern slot games.

Not only is Starburst is action-filled and visually rewarding enough to entertain players for hours at a time, but it’s Both-Way win feature allows players to rack up twice as many wins as they would in most regular slots. Thanks to this feature Starburst - a medium volatility slot - pays out fairly often with low and mid-sized wins, making the regular gameplay highly rewarding and encouraging players to continue on their journey in search for the next Starburst symbol.

Overall Starburst provides players with a simple, yet dazzling journey through the cosmos that is bound to thrill newbies and regular slot players alike.
