The Starburst online slot is a 5-reel, 10 pay line slot from NetEnt. This is an original game that has grown to become one of the most popular slots available to play online. The symbols are all sparkling, colourful jewels, and there are lots of different ways in which you can win prizes.
You kick off by selecting the value of your coin from 0.01 to 1.00, and the number of pay lines you want in play. You can also select your playing level from 1 to 10 – your playing level multiples your stake, and any cash prize you might win. Once you’re happy, hit the spin button to set the jewels in motion. The jewels are stacked in columns of three, and to win a prize, you need to land at least three in sequence on an active pay line. Starbust is an ‘each way’ slot in that your winning sequence can start from either the far left-hand or right-hand reel.
Payouts range from x5 your stake-per-line for three purple or blue gems, to x250 for five bar symbols.
The ‘Starburst Wild’ symbol is a multi-coloured, eight-pointed star and appears on the central three reels. If one wild symbol appears anywhere on a reel, then the whole reel turns wild and a free re-spin is triggered in which the wilds stick. More wilds can appear during the re-spin, triggering another re-spin. The wild symbol substitutes for all other symbols …
… and that is Starburst in a nutshell. As happens quite often, the beauty of this slot lies within its simplicity. Wins can be rare, but because of the stacked reels, when a win occurs it’s usually a ‘combo’ win, leading to big jackpots. The wilds add real excitement, as if you get to the point where two or all three central reels are wild, you’re more or less guaranteed a spectacular combo win. This simple yet genuinely addictive game-play, along with the bright and flashy graphics, makes Starburst one of the very best online slots you’ll find anywhere.
