Start burst is probably one of the funniest, and still the most popular games available on online casinos today. Although the developer has not gone overboard with the slot’s graphics or theme, they have incorporated some very powerful special features to deliver great gameplay.
NetEnt has now taken a higher step by developing a high volatility sequel known as, Starburst XXXtreme.
Here is more about the game:
Starburst XXXtreme offers 9 pay lines and 5x3 reels design. Among its top features are multipliers (can go up to 150x per wild), expanding wilds and as well respins.
Placing a wager is not very costly, and you can start with just $0.10, while the highest that NetEnt allows per spin is $50.
Apart from the regular bet, the slot also offers you two extra bets that you can pick from. This is a process that I was quite happy with and it adds to the thrill of the game. This is how this works:
10x the stake per spin that offers a guarantee of at least 1 expanding wild;
95x the stake per spin that offers not less than 2 expanding wilds.
Individual combos offer a 50x the stake, which means a 450x for a full screen of symbols.
However, with help coming from the expanding wilds, plus the slot’s huge multipliers, wins of up to 200,000x the stake is very possible.
NetEnt loves extremely volatile slots, and this is the same thing we are seeing here. However, they have also given it a good RTP of 96.26%.
The original Starburst used a simple concept whereby, the expanding wilds triggered the respins, and up to 3 could appear on the middle reels.
However, with the upgraded version, those same expanding wilds appear on reels 2-4, and in addition to giving you a respin while in the sticky form, they also apply multipliers to your wins.
The multipliers range between 2x and 150x. With several wilds contributing to a win, you may end up with a 450x boost to your wins.
YO can also get up to 3 random wilds via regular spins or respins
If you had an opportunity to play the original Starburst slot, then the upgraded version is not that different.
NetEnt has maintained the same symbols and design, which makes it easy to tackle especially for players who handled the original one.
Symbols include a mix of classic icons, plus some gemstones. These are Starburst Wild, Bar Logo, the Lucky 7, and five gemstones in different colours and shapes.
Starburst XXXtreme does not kid around, and as a NetEnt product, you can expect a lot of seriousness in it.
It is a slot with massive potential, but its high volatility might keep many players away.
