Starburst Game Description

Starburst is a slot game brought to us by NetEnt, played over 5 reels with 10 paylines. Despite being one of the older NetEnt slot games, it is still one of the most popular online slot games of all time. This game brings a touch of the arcade onto your screens and is based solely around the legendary Starburst Wild symbol. Classic looking and simple, let’s take a look at why this slot game has received a cult status!

Starburst Game Details

The game has a standard 5-reel, 3-row grid with 10 pay lines. Unlike many other casino games, this slot uses a pays both ways mechanism. The feature means you can land wins by getting 3 or more matching symbols on a payline on adjacent reels, either starting from the left or right reel.

In terms of game volatility, we would class this as a low to medium volatile slot. The game triggers smaller wins more often, and you can land a maximum payout of 500x your stake.

Starburst Theme

Visually, this cosmic slot is out of this world. It looks stunning with its outer space theme. Adding to the experience is the vibrant soundtrack. Although the game was released in 2012, the graphics and animations are all HD and don’t look outdated. They easily match the newer slot games out there.

When you hit a winning combination, your screen will fill with arcade-like visuals and sound effects with electronic sounds and flashing text, all bright against the dark background.

How to win on the Starburst slot

You will find different symbols on the reels of the Starburst online slot, including 5 coloured gems, a Number 7, and a BAR symbol. In ascending order, the purple, blue, orange, green, and yellow gems are the lowest paying symbols. They are worth 2.5x up to 6x your stake for a set of 5 on a payline. The 7 symbol is worth up to 12x your stake for a set of 5 on a payline. The BAR is the highest-paying symbol.

If you manage to fill the entire grid with BAR symbols, you can win 500-times your stake. Since this is a pays both-ways slot, your chances are higher.

The most important symbol of the game is the famous Starburst wild. This symbol can only appear in the three centre reels - 2, 3, and 4. It can substitute all the standard paying symbols. It will replace them to award you with the corresponding payout.

How to play Starburst

To start the reels, set your stake and press the spin button. You can adjust the level of the bet and the coin value by using the buttons available at the bottom of the screen. Once you’re happy with the stake, press the central spin button and the symbols will start rolling. All the wins will be automatically added to your balance.

Starburst Bonus Features

The Starburst slot comes with just one bonus feature. Although it doesn’t offer players the classic free spins feature, there is the great Starburst wild symbol. The wild can expand to generate entirely wild reels and respins. You can end up with a maximum of three wild reels.

The Starburst Wilds Feature

The whole game is entirely focused on the Starburst wild feature. This can substitute for all symbols and will only ever land on the three central reels. If you land one on any of the three middle reels, then you will automatically trigger the Starburst Wild Symbols feature.

The Starburst Wild will expand over the entire reel, awarding you an entirely wild reel. This reel will stay locked in position, and you will get a free re-spin. If you then manage to land another Starburst Wild, the same process will repeat - the reel turns wild, locks in place, and you get another free re-spin.

In the best-case scenario, the three middle reels get filled with the Starburst Wild. The feature ends when you get no more Starburst Wilds appearing on a re-spin. If you get 3 wild reels, it becomes easier to fill the grid with BAR symbols and land the maximum 500x payout.
